As sleek and silent as a butterfly. Well, not quite as silent, but pretty darn close.

Adding a sleek, noise-reducing set of roof bars to your vehicle is as easy as installing the new Yakima Whispbar Rail Bar Rack Kit. If your automobile already has factory side rails, then all you need to do is order the appropriate size, watch through the window for the delivery truck, and clip the included horizontal towers when the package arrives.

  • Aerofoil shape mimics an airplane wing to provide smooth, consistent air flow—drastically reduces drag that causes noise
  • 1B variant includes: One Whispbar crossbars, two towers with SKS locks
  • 2B variant includes: Two Whispbar crossbars, four towers with SKS locks

Great product.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

receiving this order was bitter sweet. Why you ask? Reading the title that said "rail kit" and seeing a picture that had two crossbars in it, I quickly placed the order. The price was awesome. I looked at Yakima's fit guide for my jeep and selected s44. Order arrives in 2 days. I open up the box to find one rail. $238 spent to 2nd day one rail. (Hand in face). The irony in all this. I will now pay more to order the second rail then it would have cost to purchase the set for $399. So enough of my pissing and moaning.

Overall a very well made product. This one crossbar replaced a factory jeep crossbar that had folded in last kayaking trip. Construction appears to be spot on. Very easy to install. Took all of 5 minutes or so. Locking covers on the ends so they can't be stolen. Yakima kayak carrier mounted to and provides a rock solid attachment of your kayak or other toy to the roof of your vehicle. Overall great product minus my lapse of judgement and stupidity.

By the way, anyone know if I can just order another "half rack" to finish this install? Half racks are the same for both front and rear crossbars right?

I almost fell into the same trap as you Dan. The small print says something about a half rail, yet the pic and the inserted Thule description says: Includes: Two Whispbar crossbars, four towers with SKS locks. WTF Backcountry?

Responded on

Glad to hear you made out ok Mark. Doing to give it another day or so and see if Back Country weighs in on some of these conversations. If not i'll reach out to them direct. This mistake on my part will end up costing me $50 more than buying the complete set for $399. sucks...

Same thing here. Deceptive. I am returning mine and buying from Amazon.

Responded on

WOW ! I would have done the same. A kit of ONE. Sounds like a mega scam.. I am not buying .. THNX for the warning

Low Pro Winner!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I wanted the lowest profile crossbars I could find and these did the trick! Easy mounting job and painless.

Awesome bars but watch what box you buy

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I had to send these bars back since they did not have enough clearance with my 2014 vw tiguan and the yakima box that i also bought. Had to send back and get the yakima rail grab set that worked perfectly. Very nice sleek bars though i wished they worked but oh well, easy hassle free exchange with backcountry, thank you!

These mounted quickly and easily. They're much quieter than I expected also.

Easy to install, virtually silent. Better looking than factory rails. Installed on 2013 Nissan Rogue. Installed in less than 10 minutes.

Great rack!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I put these on my Subaru Outback last year. They are much stronger and more stable than the factor cross bars. I had 3 bikes on the roof during a 3500 mi road trip and no problems. Used the Yakima Forklift to mount directly to the Whispbars.

Love the fact that Yakima has included a storage in the rail for your allen wrench.

You would have to have some factory rails on it already. I think most GS models have a naked roof, you would have to do something like a Q Tower.

Can't tell without knowing more details about your vehicle. Here's a link to the Yakima Fit Guide. Once you put in your car info you should have the info you need.
