From carbon fiber Mavic wheels to leather Brooks saddles handmade in England, there's no shortage of cool gear to buy for your prized bike. The only trouble, though, is the best often costs the most. While that might hold true for frames and gearings, the Yakima Viper Bike Rack proves that premium quality doesn't have to cost a pretty penny.
If you're looking for bells and whistles, you've come to the wrong bike rack. The Yakima Viper won't make toast—but it will hold your bicycle safe and steady while you're traveling to the trailhead. Just pop off your front tire, plant your fork in the skewer and secure the rear wheel with the ratcheting strap. Plus, the recently revamped skewer lets you dial in the perfect fit with one hand, making it simple to load up for a solo ride.
Mounting your Viper Bike Rack is easier than coasting downhill. It connects right to your round or square crossbars without a single tool needed. For enhanced security, you can add SKS locks (sold separately) to block bandits from walking off with your rack. And, Yakima backs your Viper Rack with a Lifetime Warranty.
