Whispbar, creator of the world’s quietest and most innovative roof rack system, is bringing together unmatched aerodynamics, elegant styling and premium performance with its first line of cargo boxes: the WB700 Aero Compact Cargo Carrier and the WB701 Aero Mid-size Cargo Carrier.

Designed to integrate beautifully with the vehicle, the shape and size of the WB700 Aero Compact Cargo Carrier and WB701 Aero Mid-size Cargo Carrier are inspired first and foremost by vehicle fit and superior aerodynamic performance.

”The Whispbar aerodynamic cargo carriers will change the way people look at cargo boxes,” said Garrett Barnum, Global Brand Director for Whispbar. “These beautiful boxes are intentionally styled and sized to complement a vehicle’s graceful lines without compromising on capacity, and they offer unparalleled aerodynamic performance.”

Sleek and smooth, the boxes’ clean design is achieved through seamless look of where the two halves of the carrier meet, without an unsightly plastic lip and exposed rivets. Like all other Whispbar products, the carriers integrate perfectly with the Whispbar rack system, enhancing both the vehicle’s appearance and its performance.

Both cargo boxes perform as beautifully as they look. The AccuCore dual layer lid structure adds stiffness and reduces drag, while the SmartLift spring-loaded hinges give the owner a helping hand, making opening and closing a breeze. To ensure proper closure, both have automotive-style handles that don't engage all the way until they are securely latched. To add to their smart design, the WB700 and WB701 both feature dual-side opening.

The Whispbar cargo boxes are just as easy to mount. They feature universal mounting clamps that are easily adjustable from outside of the box and can attach to any roof rack bars. They also come loaded with the Integrated Lock System (ILS) for premium security.
