The amount of wind noise created by a roof rack will vary according to the design of the rack and the shape of the vehicle. A rack that is not loaded or only lightly loaded will usually make more noise because large loads tend to dampen noise. But in general, the installation of a roof rack will result in a greater amount of wind noise when a vehicle is driven at speed, and this can vary from mildly annoying to unbearable. Whatever level of roof rack noise induced irritation you're experiencing, it can be reduced by up to 85% with the installation of a Yakima Fairing.
The Fairing is designed to attach to the front round crossbar on your Yakima roof rack. There it will direct the airflow up and over the roof rack, reducing drag for more serene motoring and better fuel economy. All required hardware and comprehensive, illustrated installation instructions are also included. The Fairing is backed by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
