Yakima’s Versatile New Roof Rack Makes Packing For Overland Adventures a Snap

Yakima’s newest roof rack means you can take all your bikes, tents and boards to the mountain.


Key Specs:
Brand: Yakima
Model: LockNLoad
Price: $699+
Availability: Fall 2019
Unique Features: You can customize your roofrack to fit exactly what you need for your adventuring whether you’re skiing, biking or camping.

Upshot: With more and more people planning trips that get them outdoors and further away from any gear rental spots, it makes the most sense to bring your bikes, SUPs, fishing rods and other big adventure items with you. The LockNLoad platform rack features side-to-side slats that make it super customizable so that you can load up a kayak or skis or a tent — all on your car roof.

Who It’s For: Adventurers who want to go further off the grid but bring all the gear options with them.

Insight: Yakima’s LockNLoad platform rack earned the seal of approval deep in the Outback after a hefty testing period. Six sizes will hold anything from 165 to 440 pounds. The minimalist design makes it easy to customize your rack and adventure. Mount some lights, haul bikes or strap up your spare tire — whatever you need for your next exciting trip, this Yakima rack will deck your vehicle out for all your overlanding needs.
