More room, less noise.

The Yakima Whispbar Through Bar Rack Kit lets you utilize every precious inch of the crossbars to carry all the gear you'll need for a weekend on the trails or out in the snow. As an added bonus, the crossbars' aerofoil shape looks a bit like an airplane wing and cuts smoothly through the air for a quiet and energy efficient ride.

The Whispbar Through Bar Rack Kit comes in two kit options. The full kit includes two crossbars, four towers with SKS locks, and four SmartFoot mounts with cushioning pads. The half kit comes with one crossbar, two towers with SKS locks, and two SmartFoot mounts with cushioning pads.

  • Through bar design

Honda CR-V

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Got this length bar for our bikes. We were told it should fit 4 bikes across the Honda CRV 2012 rack, but we don't see how. The black towers that hold the whisp bars at either end eat up so much room that we can't get four bike racks mounted in the space in between. The product works well, but should not be advertised to hold more than 3 bikes.

It depends on which type of bike mount you have. If you own the Whispbar specific racks, WB200 and WB201, that attach using the slot on top of the Whispbar then you can easily fit 4 bikes. However, if you're using a different brand or style of bike rack that clamps over the Whispbar, you may not be able to fit 4 bikes. Additionally, keep in mind that fork mounting racks are narrower than wheel-attached mounting racks.

Honda Fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Just got these for a roofbox on my Honda Fit. I like the shape, and they seem lower than normal bars. I don't have any to compare to, but they seem quiet. The only thing I don't like is that the rubber gaskets gap open where they seat on the roof, because of the curve of the roof. It doesn't cause anything to happen, but it doesn't look finished. Other than that, they are great!

Great crossbars and they're Quiet!

Mounted these (s18w) on top of Thule tracks (using k450 fit kit) on a 2012 jeep wrangler hard top. Super clean install and crossbar curvature matches the roof perfectly. These are heavy duty and well built bars and quiet as hell for aftermarket standards. looking forward to use these with the yakima big powderhound

Love the look

    I had a set of Yakima control towers on too of my 08 Toyota Tundra. Was a lot of wind noise even with a fairing. The noise was cut by 80% when I added these bars. They look really really good. They installed really easy. The Yakima control towers were a little easier, but not by much. The bars are made of aluminum so they will never rust. In conclusion they look great, reduced the noise and will last longer then the Yakima or Thule bars.

    Unanswered Question

    What's the difference between the three style/size options? I am looking to put on a LEER truck cap with existing track system. Want the widest crossbars possible, up to 58
