Re: My new Rack

Apart from looks (a personal thing) are these better in some way to the latest Thule offering for the overland (460R I believe) ?

Re: My new Rack

No, I don't think Thule has anything like this...They appear to be very similar to the Yakima Whisbar rack design.

How is the wind noise? I bought the Yakima bars, wind noise horrible, then bought the deflector, wind noise still horrible, so now they're all sitting in the garage.
I really need something but I hate the wind noise some of them cause.

Re: My new Rack

I second that-the noise was still just too much for me above 55mph. So, took them back to rei! Looking for a new setup soon. Let us know how the setup fares!

Re: My new Rack

Hey just wanted to see if anyone could tell me how the wind noise is with these bars. I'm looking into getting the to replace the OEM ones. Like the look a lot better then OEM.

Re: My new Rack

Get the Yakima whispbars. Zero wind noise. I have the flush whispbars and powder coated them black. They look great
