Code: REYKS5

Prorack's Whispbar™ is without any doubt the most advanced roof bar system on the planet. It's easy to fit, is almost silent in use, and has negligible impact on fuel consumption. And because it looks superb you're likely to leave it in place semi-permanently. This is the "Original Equipment" look, with closed end bars; these look very neat but if you have a lot of gear to carry then check out the longer "through bar" option.

Prorack’s S-wing roof bars are surely the most stylish, best designed, best engineered and arguably best value quality roof bars on the worldwide market. They are certainly the quietest. The big deal is the cross bar, an aluminium wing-shaped blade, the "Whispbar", which removes almost all the irritating whistle normally associated with exposed roof bars. Not only are Whispbar roof racks whisper quiet but they create so little drag, for example 69% less than the leading competitor's aerobars in test conditions, that they can be left in place without any apparent effect on fuel consumption. This is a serious benefit, especially if you use roof bars frequently and can't always be bothered to remove them when not in use - modern roof bar fixings are very safe but can be fiddly to fit and remove. And if you also agree with us that these bars are likely to enhance the looks of your car, then the point is made.

These aren’t cheap bars, so what’s the “best value” claim? Part of the genius of the Whispbar system is that the same “Smart-Foot” is used for every type of roof type, including raised roof rails, flush mounted roof rails, T-tracks, Fixpoints, clamp on systems, even cars with gutters – it’s just a question of which adapter kit you use. Unless you move e.g. from a wide vehicle to a narrow one you'll only need to buy a new adapter kit when you change car. No other roof bar system provides such flexibility. You pay a bit more to start with, but the ongoing costs should be considerably less.

Other features and specifications:

  • These bars look good and sound good, but they also feel good. They're beautifully made, are supplied fully assembled, and are relatively quick to fit.
  • They have a maximum loading limit of 75kg - but please check your vehicle's load limit as it may be less than this.
  • All roof boxes, and all accessories that can be fitted to Atera or Thule aerobars, can be fitted to the Whispbar.
  • Other manufacturers supply a rubber strip that you need to cut and press into the bar between the accessory fixings. But not Whispbar – the rubber is already in place, within the slot. Another first for Prorack.
  • When in due course you want to fit your S-wing bars to a different vehicle you may need to adjust the position of the Smart-Feet on the bars. If there isn't sufficient adjustment on your existing S-wing system you'll need to buy a pair of longer or shorter Whispbars - we'll list these options in due course. But you can always re-use the Smart-Feet - this is yet another first for Prorack.
  • You want to switch from the through bar look to the flush bar look? No problem. You just need another pair of Whispbars. The Smart-Foot system really is this smart!
  • Locks are supplied as standard.

Prorack is a major player in the global car rack systems sector, already making roof bars as original equipment for several major car manufacturers. Whispbar is the culmination of many years of design and innovation, with Prorack’s chief designer transferring his aeronautical design experience and know how to the roof rack sector, working closely with the engineering school at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand.

To summarise, Whispbar is the bells and whistles system without the whistles!

But don’t just take our word for it – hear it for yourself. Prorack engineers built a mini wind tunnel especially for the Frankfurt Automechanika trade fair in September 2008. Turn up the speaker volume and be blown away!

Delivery FAQs

When will my order arrive?
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Express Delivery orders placed on a Friday (before 1pm) should be delivered on the Monday or Tuesday, Express Delivery orders placed on a Saturday or Sunday should be delivered on the Tuesday or Wednesday. The arrangements for Very Heavy Items are different and are shown above.

What about Next Working Day delivery?
We have offered a reliable Next Working Day service for well over 20 years but, due to the pressure on the couriers caused by the coronavirus crisis and the huge increase in online shopping, we can no longer be confident about the delivery date, which is why we now call the service ‘Express delivery’. Most Express delivery orders will arrive on the next or second working day, but some will arrive on the second or third working day, or be split between these days. So-called “split deliveries” happen when the couriers do not have enough trailer space for everything that should be moved around the UK, so they will load what they can and leave the rest for the next trailer.

Is my delivery day guaranteed?
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. As well as split deliveries, all courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.

Do I need to be at home?
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver to an address which suits you – this does not need to be your home address. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.
