Item # YAK001Z
Yakima FullSwing $499.00
Hassle-free gear access.
Forget painstakingly taking your bikes off at every pit-stop just to grab the snack cooler or backpack in the trunk with the Yakima FullSwing. Solving the problem of loading and unloading gear when your bike rack is attached, the FullSwing effortlessly moves out of the way with up to four bikes attached. Suddenly, road trips and family vacations just became a whole lot easier, especially with the constant demands of loading and unloading gear. Simply loosen the rack's safety knob, pull the red pin, and rotate the rack away from your vehicle's rear hatch. You're now able to access your vehicle's gear and luggage, all without the hassle of removing each bike.
The FullSwing accommodates up to four bikes, holding up to 150-pounds in weight. Yakima's ZipStrips securely attach to all types of bikes, ranging from city cruisers to mountain bikes. The rack's arms fold down when it's not in use for easier maneuverability and parking. Tool-free installation attaches to your two-inch receiver hitch without breaking a sweat. Plus, its locking SpeedKnob prevents thieves from stealing this rack from your vehicle while an integrated cable locks bikes to the rack itself for theft deterrent.

Just isn't fit for purpose
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I was really hopeful for this bike rack as I had heard great things about Yakima and the idea of a full swing was great, but depending on your needs I would pick a different rack. Full suspension bikes and ladies' frames do no fit on the rack without buying the additional frame adapter due to the size of the resting bar and where the zipstrips need to go. Additionally 4 larger bikes is extremely difficult to fit if not impossible. I would suggest a hold-up style if you are going to have varying frames on your rack as you will quickly find this a frustrating purchase (and you may go past the 30 days to return it before you find this out as I did)!
Would this work for a Toyota Rav 4 with the rear tire on the back. There doesn't seem to be any clearance between the back of the car & the carrier.
I have four full suspension mountain bikes. I am concerned the rear suspension will interfere with the arm support when carrying the bikes and don't want to buy four Yakima TubeTop Crossbar Adapters. Will the bikes sit on the carrying arms ok without adapters? Thank you!
Hey David - It will really depend on the shape of the top tubes of your bikes. I would highly recommend you consider a tray-style rack like the Yakima FourTimer Hitch Rack (Item #YAK000V) or Thule T2 Classic (Item #THU003U) with add-on. I use the T2 for my full suspension mountain bikes. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions. - Kyle L. - Expert Gearhead
