Whistle While You Work
Review by TC Posted on January 16, 2020I haven't seen any other reviews so I thought I'd post my experience.
I purchased a set of small length racks to replace round bars that were slightly bowing under the weight of my hardshell carrier when it was loaded. While I got a substantial amount of wind noise with my round bars...read more, that doesn't seem to be a problem with these. HOWEVER, I do get whistling while driving between 15mph-60mph enough that my wife commented a few times about the annoyance. At highway speeds (60+), the whistle disappears.
I can't tell if the whistle is coming from the open bottom T-channel or the end caps. Note: the bars are directional and so I made sure to mount them arrow pointing forward. I would recommend the bars for heavy loads, but anything <165lbs, just go with the other options.
