    1Up Roof Rack Whistle Hack?

    Hey All,

    Love my new 1Up Roof Rack, but the slight whistle it has when we are cruising around town is driving my wife nuts! I have the Thule Aero bars which, by themselves, are silent. I also have the flush mount adapters and I've tried adjusting the tray in different locations (front to back), but still no luck. Is there a sock or cover for it that might restrict the airflow in and through all the holes? Has anyone else out there figured out a hack for this?

    Any help or advice is appreciated!!

    Thanks in advance!
    Keith

    Do you have a wind deflector on the front bar?

    My round Yakima bars didn't make a noise until the racks went on. The wind deflector fixed it. I was using Yakima trays at the time.

    Thanks for the reply! I thought about a screen, but even if I moved the Thule bars all the way up on the factory side rails on my VW Golf Alltrack, it would have the wind screen interfering with the functionality of the sunroof. Just looking to see if there was other 1Up users that might have solved it.

    The fairing helps but does not 100% eliminate the noise. I've found that to be true for both 1Up and Thule. As a disclaimer, I'm using square bars. I found the fairing makes a big difference but doesn't completely cure the noise. The only complete fix I've found is the radio. On the positive side, the 1Up is an awesome rack.
