Haul your bikes as far as all-wheel drive will take them, and then start pedaling.

You promised yourself that the next time you go went the desert, you would bring your bikes strapped to the Yakima KingJoe Pro 2 Bike Rack. Because let's face it, all of that rock and sand is just begging to be ridden. A new QuickTrigger hub system enables quick installation to get you on the road before the Friday rush hour, and the StableCradles ensure your machines stay put once you get off road and start the bumpy drive into the canyon.

  • Narrow arms allow you to fit a variety of mountain or road bike frames
  • Padded feet and buckles secure the rack but don't scratch your car
  • Fold-up design stores easily once you get back from your trip
  • Hooks included to attach the rack to your glass tailgate or rear window
  • An integrated bottle opener lets you cut loose with a cold one once you get back to the car

  • QuickTrigger II hub system fits a wide range of vehicles (check with Yakima's fit guide)
  • Oversized padded feet, coated metal buckles, glass hatch hooks included
  • StableCradles with secure-fastening rubber straps
  • Arms fold-up when not in use
  • Integrated bottle opener

Here's what others have to say...



  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

This rack is great, gets the job done and keep the bikes safe. It for sure does not fit all mountain bikes so be careful buying this I ride a Santa Cruz Superlite and there is no way to fandangle my bike to fit on this thing. On the other hand, my husband rides a Tallboy and his bike fits great.


Great Rack!

    I just got home from a 2k+ mile road trip from Chicago to New Orleans, with this bike rack strapped to the back of a 2012 Ford Escape rental car (SUV Crossover). Rack held up strong, i traveled with 1 road bike mounted. No Flapping, bouncing, or any issues.

    This is the first bike rack i've ever owned, it mounted up quickly and did no damage to the Escape. I will be putting this on my wife's Subaru Forester soon!

    Free shipping and excellent customer service from Back Country, you can't beat it.

    I have two cars one is Scion tc 2009 Coupe (with Spoiler) and other is Nissan Altima 2012 Sedan. Will this rack fit in both of my vehicles?

    I have two 36 pound bikes. Will this unit work with my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee? Thanks

    Responded on

    The rack has a weight limit of 30lbs per bike. So your bikes are too heavy.

    Responded on

    From the Yakima website, this rack will take bikes up to 45 lbs. The KingJoe Pro 3 will take bikes up to 30 lbs. Looks like either 2 or 3 bike version will accommodate 90 lbs. total.

    I have a 2009 Honda CRV and am having a problem finding a trunk bike rack. Will the King Joe work? Also, I have a Trek WSD road bike and need to know if the arms are narrow so they will work on this bike.

    This one works on most SUVs, so it should be fine on there. I also think it will work fine with the top tube on your bike. If not, though, the Top Tube Frame Adapter will work wonders.

    Is this compatible with small kid's bikes?...

    Is this compatible with small kid's bikes? If not is the trunk easily accessible while in use?

    Responded on

    You can put kids bikes on basically any trunk rack, from the cheap walmart racks to the nice Yakima one you see here. The trunk, however, isn't that easy to access when you have bikes on top of it with any trunk rack..
