Roof Rack Styles

revolutionary whispbar

Whispbar revolutionised the roof rack market with their unique S-wing bar design. 

Whispbar was first introduced in the Australian and New Zealand market in 2006. The parent company of Whispbar then, Hubco, was founded by a former Air New Zealand and Rolls Royce aircraft engineer.

Using their aeronautical expertise, the engineers at Hubco created a roof rack bar which resembles the shape of an aircraft wing. This ultra-aerodynamic roof rack bar decreases wind resistance, providing slightly improved fuel economy and a significant wind noise reduction on most other roof racks. 

These whisper-quiet roof bars were named Whispbar and were ultimately bought by Yakima Products (USA) one of the world’s largest roof rack and adventure accessory manufacturers.
