    REI Members get back an estimated $ 39.90 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Designed specifically for vehicles with raised factory siderails, this pair of aerodynamic and whisper-quiet Whispbar Rail Bars are a virtually silent roof rack system.

    • Fitting between the factory racks rather than atop them, both Rail bars adjust in length to allow for different widths between fixed factory racks on tapered car roofs
    • A vehicle-specific Whispbar fitting kit is not required for installation, please visit www.whispbar.com for the most up to date fit information
    • Whispbar crossbars are designed with an aerofoil shape (think airplane wing) that allows air to pass over with less resistance, reducing drag and increasing fuel efficiency
    • Aerodynamic bar profile reduces wind noise and drag up to 70% less than other roof racks
    • Includes bars, integrated towers and mounting hardware
    • Whispbar accommodates most universal attachments and t-slot attachments for bike, water, snow and cargo accessories
    • Locks and 2 SKS keys are included
    • Whispbar Rail Bars have a maximum hauling load of 165.35 lbs./75kg
    • Bar lengths: S44 = 920mm - 1,020mm/36.2 in. - 40 in.; S45 = 980mm - 1,080mm/38.5 in. - 42.5 in.; S46 = 1,040mm - 1,140mm/41 in. - 45 in.
    • Bar lengths: S53 = 790mm - 850mm/31 in. - 33.5 in.; S54 = 850mm - 910mm/33.5 in. - 36 in.; S55 = 910mm - 970mm/36 in. - 38 in.

    Whispbar Rail Bar - Pair is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I have an 2013 BMW X5. I returned my BMW crossbars on the basis of the promos on these bars and Yakima's reputation. (I have had nothing but Yakima roof systems on my cars for over 20+ years.) These do not work as advertised, at least on my vehicle. If I want to open my sunroof, even around town at 40 mph, I cannot reasonably talk on my cell phone or listen to music. At highway speeds forget it--sunroof or no bars. As I carry sports equipment several times a week it is not really practical for me to take the bars on and off every time I need them. I thought the science made sense when I read the promos but it does not work as advertised, at least on my vehicle. Be forewarned. I am very disappointed and would not recommend them to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bar Very easy to install Looks excellent on the car Low profile But need more options on bike rack to put on it

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet system I bought these for my Cayenne. They look like factory cross bars. I purchased the side rails (arrow bars) off eBay and got these to go with it. It's a great combination. The only bummer with the Yakima Whispbar is it's not compatible with the Hullavator.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rack ! Easy to install, easy to remove ( if you had to ) Strong, quiet and they look good, not bulky and silly.
