Developed over the course of ten years, the innovative and stylish Whispbar™ Roof Rack System resolves the complex issues of quietly and efficiently carrying items on the roof of vehicles. Patented Whispbar™ technology is an ingenious noise reduction method developed using university airflow research that massively reduces drag while radically improving fuel efficiency. Push down infill allows for the easy fitment of accessories. Smart-Foot™ technology enables roof attachment using an adaptable mount foot system for easy transfer between vehicles – no need for a new roof rack. Retail inventory requirements are also significantly reduced.
