Bike Rack Tow Bar Hitch
Your car and bicycle will be the best of friends with the Yakima towbar hitch bike racks. Depending on what you're after, we have tilt and swing racks which give you easy vehicle access. These bike tow bar hitch options, like this HoldUp 2 Bike Rack option pictured, connect to your exisiting towbar set up and provide bike storage close the ground and heavy load carrying options.
Bike Roof Racks
Rooftop bike racks are a great way to transport your bike anyplace you want to go. Transporting your bike on the roof means you won’t obstruct your view of the road as you might by carrying it on the back. If you have a larger vehicle, you can usually carry more bikes on your roof than on a hitch-mounted rack. Rooftop racks also mean you won’t sacrifice access to your boot or hatch while carrying your bikes. Using a rack also means your bike is safe and secure outside your vehicle, freeing up lots of interior room for more gear and friends. Roof racks provide the most stable way to transport your bike, whether you choose to leave the front tyre on or take it off.
Bike Boot or Hatch Racks
Yakima rear hitches attach to your boot or hatch and are an economical, easy-to-use solution for small vehicles, people who switch cars often, and single riders.Our rear bike racks attach quickly and easily to your car’s hatchback or boot for maximum adventure time with minimal installation. Your bike will be safe and sound as you explore far and wide for the sweetest spot to start your ride. Our rear racks are portable and make loading your bike simple.
Bike Ute Tray Racks
An empty truck or ute bed is a versatile storage area, but hauling things like bicycles, kayaks, and skis in that vast, cavernous space isn’t always easy or safe. Yakima has the right accessories for you to create usable storage in your truck for all your outdoor gear so that both your truck and your gear stay protected and safe.
Do you need a tow bar for a bike rack?
