The Yakima Raptor Aero fits bikes with down tubes from one inch to three inches, but is not intended for use with composite frames. Any tire, twenty inches or larger, will fit on the Raptor Aero, and even bikes with disc breaks, thru axles, or non-traditional suspensions will fit. The tires of your bicycle secure to a wheel tray that uses ratcheting straps to hold them in place. The cross bars you mount the Yakima Raptor Aero to should be no more than 4 inches wide and 1.5 inches tall. For the Yakima Raptor Aero to work, your vehicle’s cross bar spread must be between 16 inches and 38 inches with a minimum spread of 16 inches for up to two Raptor Aero carriers.
