Description

Take your bike for a ride with the Yakima HighRoller Mount.

You know what isn't any fun at all? Taking your bike apart so you can load it on your car. You know what else isn't any fun? Driving away without your bike's front wheel because you had to take it off when you loaded your bike up. Yakima calls the HighRoller 'the finest bike rack mount in  the known universe' and we tend to agree for the two reasons above. The Yakima HighRoller lets you load your bike–yes, your whole bike–on top of your car, so you don't have to mess around with quick-releases or thru-axle adapters and you don't arrive home with half a bike. It's all there–just pop it off the roof and go.

  • Carries your whole bike, completely built, all at once
  • Carries just about any style of bike (no tandems or recumbents) without any kind of adapters
  • Easy to use, secure, lock-compatible (lock cores not included)
  • Collapses flat, so no-low garage-door issues
  • Mounts on round or square cross-bars
  • Doesn't touch and painted surfaces on your bike

Gets the job done

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this rack after a serious amount of research and I'm not totally disappointed. The thing is easy to assemble and operate, but not perfect. On the product I received, the bottom swing arm ratchet doesn't catch at the low end so I've been forced to push my 26" wheel forward to the 29" setting. This allows the bottom arm to move higher and catch, giving the adjustable screw a chance to grip the tire. Not sure what I would do if I rode a 29er other than return it as I don't think I can MacGyver a fix given the plastic construction.

This problem is most likely only an issue with the product I received, and not a design defect. For me, my next rack will be made by 1Up USA.

I believe I have this same issue.. I had it set at 26" and when I tried to tighten the knob it just clicks once and doesn't really catch then the slightest pressure knocks it down rendering it useless. I will try the 29er setting and see if that works for me too.

No muss - No fuss

this is my second HighRoller - first one never gave me any trouble so when I needed another Roof top bike rack I looked at what's the latest & greatest and I saw nothing that rocked me . So here I am.... simple, fast and secure. Funky frames don't phase it.

Slick & Easy

The Yakima High Roller bike rack is as good as it gets. I've used other brands in the past and they all fall short when compared to the High Roller. The bike is extremely stable and secure when driving on the highway or in a winding canyon. When demoing different size bikes, it took a matter of seconds to switch the rack to fit 26" or 29" size wheels. Until using this rack, I had no idea what a luxury it is to not have to remove the front tire. Not only does it keep the insides of my car clean, but I'm riding my bike in a matter of minutes when I get to the trail head since I don't have to dink around with putting my front tire on. The locking system is great and simple too. Yakima nailed it with this rack.

Best way to go.

  • Gender: Male

I've had several mounts from yakima and Thule and this is my favorite so far. To address a couple issues below and add a few things in no particular order

- Saves space in your car because you don't have to stash the rear wheel.

- to put the bike on just roll it forward (or backwards if you installed the bike that way) and push the back lever up behind the rear of the front wheel. It ratchets up close to the position and the dial just finishes it off. The rear bar shouldn't be in the way of the dial or you're are doing it wrong.

-Release tension with the know and then hit the button in the middle as a quick release and the rear arm falls down.

-Locking the middle bike of 3 is hard, but I'm willing to guess stealing one from the middle is harder- not saying it can't happen thou. (Cables are weak locks - just a warning)

- Aerodynamics are bad, but so is putting anything on the top of your car. Oh well.

- The bikes do wiggle a bit but aren't going anywhere. Just follow the directions, no rallying and no serious offroading and you'll be fine.

Decent rack, minor issues

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have three of these rack trays on top of my Subaru Outback wagon. These is my third Yakima rack system and I have had numerous tray options over the years as well.

I like:
1) No need to remove wheels
2) Adjusts to different wheel sizes
3) Bike Lockability
4) Does not scratch the bikes

I do not like:
1) Can be hard to get front wheel in the rack as rack adjustment knob is in the way
2) Cable lock attachment does not move to alternate side
3) Hard to load bikes towards middle of the car
4) Bikes seem to flex around some
5) Cannot handle bikes with front fenders

I started out with one and purchased two more so the good points out weigh the bad.
I use their core lock system so I can lock the base rack, carry trays, and bikes on the car. I have the two outside trays pointing forward with the middle one pointing backward. Since the bike locking cable always is attached on the same side (left) that means on the passenger side tray the lock is hard to reach and use because the lock is
on the other side of the tray (I wish it could be swapped). It can be hard to get your front wheel in the tray as the big rack adjustment knob stops your bike from rolling forward on the tray. Personally because I do not trust rack adjustment knob from failing (letting the bike tip over) I always put an old toe strap around where it grabs the wheel (better safe than sorry).

great rack!!

just bought a new mountain bike and this rack and i love that i dont need to take my front wheel off, one drawback is that this rack is not as aerodynamic as my other racks that require you to take your front wheel off.

Does anyone know the length of the tray...

Does anyone know the length of the tray from the front bar to the tail end? I'm concerned about interference with the hatch on my wagon.

Responded on

53" from the front crossbar to the rear of the wheel tray. I have NO problems with my Suburu Outback hatch.
