Yakima Rack and Bike Transport Solutions at Interbike

Yakima showed off plenty of new and unique pieces of gear to get your bikes to the trail and you into adventure.

Yakima Skyrise Poler Colab Rooftop Tent

Yakima partnered up with Poler to to create this limited-edition rooftop tent in a fuzzy camo color. Yakima anticipates the tent being available this November and is also making some new accessories available including an LED light strip, gear loft and shoe box. Retail for this off-the-ground shelter is $1199.

Yakima Gatekeeper Tailgate Pad

Yakima also introduced us to their new Gatekeeper tailgate pad which comes in two sizes, medium and large, that correspond to the size of truck you own. The medium version holds five bikes and the large holds six bikes. The pad has integrated downtube padding and straps to keep your bikes in place. It has a larger access port for the tailgate latch and back-up camera, as well as softer backing to protect your truck's finish. $139 and $149 depending on the size.

Yakima BackSwing Rack Adapter

The new Yakima BackSwing adapter provides the ability to swing away from the tailgate for any hitch-mounted rack that didn't previously offer the feature. It fits a 2-inch receiver and adds a bit of length to your rack which some people find beneficial for additional clearance with a vehicle's spare tire. Retail price is $299.

Yakima HoldUp EVO Rack

Yakima's classic hitch rack is back in a new-and-improved version. The rack is fat bike-compatible and features a new latch and kick plate that make folding the rack up and down much easier. Yakima has moved to a new speed knob for tool-free installation. The best feature may be the integrated bottle opener at the end of the rack. $499 hooks it up.
