Yakima and Discount Ramps now offer three new roof top bike racks! The first is the Yakima Boa; this versatile and economical fork-mount bike rack features a pivoting wheel tray which allows it to fit round and square cross bars within a 32 to 50 inch spread. The Yakima Boa rooftop bike rack even mounts to the Load Warrior Cargo Basket. The Yakima SteelHead rooftop bike rack works with round bars to provide a safe and sturdy hold on your bicycle. The SteelHead is a fork-mounted bike rack that is easy to install and use. The Yakima SproketRocket gives you optimum performance with killer looks. This sturdy fork-mount bike rack works with a wide range of bikes, from disc breaks to children’s bikes, and can carry tires up to three inches wide.
The Yakima Sprocket Rocket is Discount Ramps model number 8002090. The Sprocket Rocket is a fork-mounted bike rack that has a durable and sturdy construction with a sleek aerodynamic design. The Sprocket Rocket will carry a wide range of bicycles styles — including most bikes with disc brakes and tires up to 3 inches in width. It has an easy to use skewer with an integrated adjustment knob that securely holds your bicycle in place. This Yakima bike rack features an adjustable sliding wheel tray; the sliding rear wheel tray is designed to accommodate bikes with different lengths and fits big ol’ 3 inch wide tires to skinny tires. Double-sided wheel straps will work with either side of the vehicle. Yakima’s Sprocket Rocket works with round and square crossbars. No tools are required to construct this system. You remove your bicycle’s front wheel, attach the fork to the skewer, and adjust the skewer’s sliding wheel tray into position of your bike’s rear tire. You secure your bike with the SKS-compatible lock, which is sold separately. Yakima gave the Sprocket Rocket an automotive industry finish, so it looks like it came with your car from the factory, while resting on your roof. This fork mount rooftop bike rack carries a single bike and will work with both round and square crossbars. The crossbar spread must be between 16 and 46 inches, the minimum spread must be 16 inches for 2 bikes, and for more than two bikes it is an 18 inch spread. Overall, the whole rack is 53 inches in length and weighs only 10.4 pounds. For enhanced security, install one accessory lock house and one additional SKS Core so you can lock the wheel tray crossbars. The Yakima Sprocket Rocket comes with a limited life time warranty.

The Yakima SteelHead roof bike rack is Discount Ramps model number 8002045. The Yakima SteelHead bike rack is an easy to use and durable fork-mount bike rack that offers the security of pricier fork-mounted racks. The SteelHead features an aerodynamic fork block which offers a low profile and adds stability. The aerodynamics keeps you from getting worse gas mileage and reduces wind noise when you are driving, giving you extra stability. The SteelHead is an extremely strong bike rack that will withstand a ton of abuse, and more importantly, it’s simple to use with a safe and easy no tool installation that allows you to set it up in seconds. You simply attach the SteelHead to your car’s existing Yakima round bars and then connect your bike’s fork to the SteelHead and secure the wheel of your bike. This bike mounted rack is designed to fit a large range of wheels and tires. Included in this kit is an ergonomic, 9 millimeter stainless steel skewer that adjusts with one hand and makes loading effortless, and it engages with a quick release lever. The rear wheel sits in the adjustable tray and is secured with a ratcheting strap. This roof mounted bike rack fits a single bicycle and mounts only on Yakima round crossbars. The spreads must be between 16 inches and 42 inches and between 16 and 18 inches for two bikes. While weighing only 4.5 pounds, this rack is 3.75 inches wide and 46.5 inches long overall. The tray that the tire sits in is 43 inches in length. The tool-free installation makes mounting this system a breeze, and the all metal, long throw skewer negotiates fork safety tabs without readjustment. This rack also fits the Yakima tower and crossbar roof rack system, which is sold separately.

The Yakima Boa Roof rack is Discount Ramps model number 8002065. The Yakima Boa fork-mount bike rack is a great way to carry your bicycle without spending a lot of money. This fork-mount rack easily attaches to a lockable skewer for fast loading and unloading. The SKS lock cores are sold separately. Featuring a pivoting wheel tray, this bike rack system will work with a cross bar spread of 32 to 50 inches. This Yakima bicycle carrier works with not only round bars, but square roof bars as well and can even be mounted to the Load Warrior cargo basket. The short tray system that comes with the Boa takes up very little space giving you room for other cargo or toy racks. Being that this is one of Yakima’s most affordable bicycle roof top carriers, this system offers you a unique and flexible pivoting wheel holder that doesn’t require the tray to be full length. This system is also great for bikes with fenders, and it is compatible with disc brakes. Featuring a economical, two piece fork-mount, that has a flexible design, the boat comes with a short wheel tray that pivots and allows you to carry different lengths of bikes. The Boa roof bike rack also features a quick release skewer that engages with a durable plastic lever. The lock system is called the SKS, or the Same Key System, that is used to lock the bike to the fork block and the fork block to the cross bars. This prevents the rack and the bike from being stolen or damaged and allows you to use the same key for both. The specifications on the Yakima Boa are that it can carry a single bike, and it’s even capable with bikes that feature disc brakes. It can mount to either round or square crossbars that have a spread of 32 to 50 inches, and for added safety the Boa uses SKS Cores that you install one accessory lock house and one additional SKS core to lock the wheel tray to the cross bars. The entire Boa by Yakima system weighs only two pounds and it comes with Yakima’s lifetime warranty. So if you are biking on a budget, and you need a great bike rack you should consider the Yakima Boa Roof mount bicycle rack. The short, pivoting wheel tray allows you to carry a wide range of bike sizes without the need for a full length tray. Because the installation hardware is hidden behind the hard plastic cover on the fork block, and you can only remove the cover by taking off the skewer, the fork block is locked to the crossbars as well making this impossible for thieves without the key.
