The ultimate in heavy-duty cargo carrying is here. The HD Bar is the most ruggedly designed crossbar Whispbar offers, while still incorporating the same premium aerodynamics and quiet performance. This system is ideal for heavier loads, complete with integrated tie-down points and load strips that protect as they securely hold your gear.

The Whispbar Heavy Duty Bar is not compatible with Whispbar, Yakima, or Thule T-track accessories. Universal clamp mounts or Yakima MightyMounts will be needed to mount accessories.

  • Integrated tie-down points for securing loads
  • Includes Integrated SKS Locks
  • Installs with vehicle-specific SmartFoot™ fitting kit

Not compatible with most Yakima accessories

I bought a set of these T17 bars, unaware they are NOT compatible with many Yakima/Whispbar accessories including the T-track kayak and bike mounts used on the other Whispbar bars. A Yakima customer support person said the T17 HD bars were made for contractors wanting to carry oversized loads such as extension ladders. They will work with the Yakima Jaylow and Bowdown kayak carriers, but not the bike and boat carriers using Yakima's common T-track system or an adapter. So while these are very sturdy, heavy-duty bars, be very careful that they are compatible with what you need them for. Take a look at rei's website for a similar review (not mine). Yakima should make this clear in its product description, but it doesn't. The company said these were developed for use in Australia, and it didn't realize so many units were being sold to North American outdoor enthusiasts.
