Crossbars – It’s All About Air Flow

The most obnoxious thing in the world is driving down the road as your universal cross bars howl in the wind. Not only is that flat out annoying, but it also means you’re being inefficient & potentially unsafe as well.

Vault Cargo Management relentlessly studied the aerodynamics of our line of cross bars. We’ve fine-tuned everything on these babies, from the shape of the cross bar itself to the angle compared to the road, to the mounting system.

It’s safe to say that you’re going to be pleasantly surprised how quiet your Subaru rooftop cross bars are. We know we are!

Great Gear, Great Team

When you buy a set of universal roof rack cross bars for your car from Vault Cargo Management, you aren’t buying from someone that can’t support you after your purchase. The great thing is you also aren’t buying it from a behemoth corporate conglomerate fueled by private equity money that simply doesn’t care.

Vault Cargo Management lies somewhere in the middle of those two. We’re proud to say we’ve become one of the fastest growing companies in the country because of it. We started out small, and have grown organically from there.

From our design team to our customer support folks, you’re working with people you’d likely want to have a beer with. We hire folks that show strong, midwesterner values & our feedback proves that it’s appreciated.

    You really can’t beat these for the price point. Just make sure they’ll actually fit your car before buying them.

    Lost an end cap which wasn’t great, but Vault had us a new one within two days. Solid customer service

    These work well assuming you do your homework beforehand. Don’t just buy them expecting them to fit your Smart car. They’re made for certain types of vehicles, and if you have one that works with these you’ll love em

    Can’t wait to get the kayak back out on the water again!
