Yakima SkyBox Lo Carbonite Cargo Box $579.00
Breakfast chefs and snow shredders agree.
If you're an internationally renowned pancake chef, you'll know why the flatness of the Yakima SkyBox Lo Carbonite Cargo Box is so sweet, and the same's true if you're a skier or snowboarder. The Lo has a slimmer profile than Yakima's other boxes—perfect for skis and boards—and the Carbonite material is 80% recycled and extra-lightweight so you can carry more gear without weighing your car down. This cargo box has internal lid stiffeners and an aerodynamic design for increased efficiency and less noise. The SkyBox opens on both sides and closes tightly with a SuperLatch secure closure system, and also has an integrated SKS Lock system to keep three people's gear safe and sound.

Sleek and Easy to Install
The installation on this box was extremely easy and quick. The box looks great, and was kept by Yakima as they downsized on their product availability, for a good reason.
What a Baller Box
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This Yakima box is so freaking awesome and I cant even stand it. The low profile of the box is so nice not feeling affected by wind while driving and still fitting in parking garages. This box has some great adjust-ability and has great ease of use while opening and closing the box. I am going to put a mat or something of the sort in the bottom to make sure nothing slides around but other than that the box is Baller!
Sleek and Lo Profile
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've been a bit skeptical on buying a SkyBox for my Subaru Forester, but I have to admit that my expectations were exceeded with the SkyBox Lo Carbonite. I didn't want to deal with having a bulky and tall box on top of my car, when Yakima says Lo - they mean Low and without compromising cargo space. The slim aerodynamic design along with the new Carbonite textured lid substantially cut down on wind noise that I've noticed on trips with other boxes. It is also capable of opening on either side, which makes things that much more convenient on trips. No assembly required. Assembly is tool-free installation/removal on any vehicle, it fits Yakima round, factory, aerodynamic and square bars which means it is compatible with nearly all vehicles that have or can have cross bars attached to.
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I gave this as a gift to my older bro, but here's what he had to say!!
I love my cargo box. It was easy to install. The opening from either side feature is great and convenient. I was able to fit two snowboards, two pairs of skis/poles plus gear! I have a jeep so this is a great way to add cargo space. The latch forces you to lock it in order to remove the key. I find this a great feature because it basically makes it impossible to forget to lock it. The low-profile design is perfect. It adds a minimal amount of height to your vehicle but has a lot of room inside. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking at a cargo box but that may be concerned about height.
