Whispbar S1 Base Rack Reviews
Eric rated this item 4 out of 5 on 1/2/2012:
I have had this rack for about 1.5 years and I really like it. Two negatives - the rubber feet did not mate completely with the rack supports when the fit kit straps were tightened. This is because of the drainage bars on my roof. Their customer service was great when I contacted them about it initially. With the design of the rubber it could not be mated better unless you played around with the feet position (i did not do it). The gaps don't cause whistling though. Negative No. 2 is whispbar is advertised on all 4 rack supports (2 would have been sufficient parallel to the bars where it is not so obvious). The rack is quiet, as advertised, and I think it actually makes my car drive better than before.
