Our bomb-proof steel crossbars offer you the highest possible carrying capacity and the widest possible range of gear mount combinations. Carry anything from bikes to boats and everything in between. Pair them up with a Tower (page 4) to complete your Yakima rack.Crossbars attach to towers, provide stability to your roof rack, and support the sport-specific mounts that carry your gear. The width of your crossbars also determines how much stuff you can carry.
Why is a Yakima Rack better than a factory rack?You can carry up to 165 lbs. of gear* on our steel bars. Some factory racks are made of plastic that can’t carry the big loads • Yakima bars can usually be placed farther apart so you can carry heavier loads and a wider range of gear • Yakima fits a wide range of vehicles, and many of our products will fit new car after car for years to come
