The Whispbar Flush Bar roof rack was created with the idea that a roof rack shouldn’t just be a utilitarian tool, but rather should blend in and integrate with your vehicle’s natural styling to create a sleek, sporty silhouette. At the same time, it should be unobtrusive and not detract from your vehicle’s ride quality or economy. The Whispbar Flush Bar may be the most beautiful roof rack system ever created; an accessory so pleasing to the eye you’ll enjoy having it attached to your vehicle’s roof even when you’re not transporting any cargo.
The Whispbar’s cross bars end flush with the rack feet for a smooth, seamless appearance. Unlike any other manufacturers so called “aero” bars, these bars have a real streamlined aerofoil shape, for the lowest aerodynamic drag of any cross bars available. The PerformaRidge at the leading edge of the bar controls laminar airflow over the bar to further decrease drag, and the PerformaFill in the trailing edge of the bar dampens high frequency wind noise. All this results in drag and noise that are reduced to near zero, for the quietest possible ride and best fuel efficiency.
But the Whispbar isn’t just aesthetically pleasing, it’s also tough enough to handle all your accessory carrying needs and easy to install. The sturdy glass reinforced nylon rack feet and 6063 T5 aluminum cross bars can support up to 165 lbs. per pair, and Whispbar’s exclusive SmartFoot technology enables the rack to be installed on any style roof with a vehicle specific fitting kit, including smooth roofs, raised side rails, flush, fixed point, permanent installation, track and gutter mount. This technology enables you to use your roof rack on a similar sized vehicle with just the purchase of a fitting kit for that roof style. And Whispbar’s exclusive SmartFill technology allows you to install T-slot mounted accessories without having to cut the fill strip. Just install the accessory in the slot over the fill strip, and when it’s removed the strip will pop back up, maintaining the bar’s smooth aerodynamic appearance.
The covers on the rack feet are lockable and the rack comes with 2 keys. Yakima SKS (Same Key System) cores can be installed, which enable you to lock all accessories with one key. Whispbar Flush Bars come with comprehensive, illustrated installation instructions and they’re backed by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.90.00 459.00

They look fine but do not fit that well. The doors stick out a little at the top and a low noisy air to get in as your on the road. They even leak a little in rain or car wash.Was this review helpful for you?

I was originally looking for a Thule roof rack, like drivers often seek a Mercedes: Name recognition of status. I ran a basic search for "automotive roof racks" and ran into Yakima offerings, along the way. What initially impressed me was the aerodynamic shape of the bars which reduce drag while driving. The second advantage the Yakima provided was the primarily aluminum construction wherever possible to avoid a rust and corrosion problem as the rack grew older. Another plus was very smooth and stylish end-pieces that fully covered the bar terminal ends of the Whispbar. That overall polished look was so neat, so tidy, and full of quality that I quickly became impressed. Further, the mechanism on my roof would be lockable, safeguarding the bars. My wife wanted me to get a low-end product at a local big box store instead. Their bars were made of iron, painted black, and square in design of the bars...just an easy target for rust. Her rationale was that I really didn't know if my son's surfing interest was a passing fade or a key part of his personal identity and pride. The son is 14. If it's a faddish thing, it would last until he was 18 and off to college, presumingly a short-term interest and not worth buying a top-shelf system. I took a chance that it would be the former. (Still think I'm right.) Lockable rack tie-down straps are available for the Yakima, completing the package. Yakima aerobar pad covers I chose to insure a soft surface for his surfboard to rest upon, but I do wish the pad covers had covered the entire exposed section of the bars. The whole package was $540 and it looks so close to quality OEM products that the casual observer might mistake it for one of the the dealer options for the car. The warranty was five years, though I expect it would last much longer as long as you don't move the bars multiple times or deliberately over-tighten the seating mechanism. There was ample room for moving the bars both farther and closer together and diagrams were provided with guidelines for proper positioning. The device fitting the bar end-pieces to your specific car had a generous thick coat of paint in close to flat black and the kit provided thick, self-adhesive vinyl (?) strips to additionally protect the indented sections of the door wells. (Don't know what that part of the car body is called) The bars might enable one to more easily sell the vehicle, should I later choose. The instruction booklet was ample and helped me not to have a lot of anxiety about properly attaching the Whispbars. Two keys were provided to safeguard the bars, as well as two more for the lockable straps. Ease of installation was very good, but not perfectly executed. In a couple of step details, Yakima could've been a little clearer, but it never got to the point that it caused me to mis-install the bars. After strapping down my son's surfboard to the Yakima roof rack system, there were no flapping shoe-strings or strap ends to ever touch your paint surface or cause abrasions. So, would I buy the product again, having the knowledge gained through a complete installation on my car? Oh, yeah!Was this review helpful for you?
