Tibetans know the importance of a good yak. They’re the ideal source for milk, clothing and entertainment when raced during the Damxung horse festival. Likewise, outdoorsy people know the importance of good racks, which is why they turn to Yakima. For over 35 years, Yakima has been designing and building world-class bike racks, cargo carriers and other gear to make your vehicle more versatile and outdoor adventures more enjoyable.
What sets Yakima apart from the competition? Simple: the company is owned and operated by real-life outdoor enthusiasts—not some boardroom of stiff suits with profit margins on the brain. Yakima wants to get you and your gear safely to the wild country, which is why they describe their products as “destination hardware.”
Along with Yakima’s real-world experience and expertise, they engineer each and every rack and carrier to meet the grueling demands of professionals. Of course, the deluxe designs are easy for even the most green novices to use, too. Whether you’re headed out for some whitewater kayaking, cross-country biking, or simply hauling extra camping gear on your roof, Yakima knows how to make your trek safe, sound and affordable.
