The Yakima Raptor bike rack holds a bike firmly with adjustable locking jaws and a triangulated arm, just like its primitive namesake. The Raptor applies upright convenience to a wide variety of tube shapes and sizes (up to 3in) at a reasonable price. Load and unload your bike without removing the front wheel. The Raptor's claw grips with a non-marring pad to protect the bike's finish; while a large red knob turns to secure the bike to the mount, meaning there are no levers to throw or weird gadgetry to deal with. The Raptor is compatible to factory racks with the addition of MightyMounts (sold separately) and mounts equally well to round or square crossbars.
