The Yakima Roof Rack Wind Fairing dampers annoying travel noise. You might whistle while you work, but your roof rack shouldn't. That's why Yakima created this functional fairing finished in cool matte black paint.
The Yakima Roof Rack Wind Fairing works to move wind up and over your roof rack, reducing sound. Its sleek construction contours to windshield angles and curvatures for a snug fit. And, you can position the Yakima Roof Rack Wind Fairing without worrying about sliding or shifting. Its patented design sits safely anywhere on your roof.
The Yakima Roof Rack Wind Fairing's aerodynamic posture means you won't be bothered by unwelcome whistling. What's more, you won't waste time on difficult installation. This fairing mounts quickly on round bars. Choose from the 32", 38", 44" or 50" length option to accommodate your vehicle's roof width. Lifetime Warranty.

The YAKIMA wind visor is an excellent addition to my 06' Scion xB. It hides the aftermarket roof rack nicely. It's a sturdy piece of equipment built to last. Installation was a little challenging due to the type of base roof rack system I have on the Scion. I actually had to modify the two end clips in order to allow the visor to rest on the roof of my car and so the clips would actually fit completly around my base rack system, once I grinded down the plastic clips. The two end plastic securing loops with the screws had to be modified to the point where visually the looked like the would no longer securely fit a round cross bar.. Once they were modified, installation went by supper quick. Regardless of a small hassle in the installation which should have taken me about 10 minuets max (but took me almost an hour because of the clip mod) the price and the look is awesome and overall installing was a breeze... Even a caveman could have followed those directions.... It's an awesome product for a very competitive price and it's serves the purpose it was intended to.. Thanks,

Far exceeded my expectations for an apparently "simple" strip of plastic, even at highway speeds. I'd guess the noise level is reduced by about 80%. Like others have said, it does seem a bit expensive for what it is, but it's well made, works great and looks cool too.
