Our first consideration at Yakima when we design a new product is the people who will use it. We consider the challenges people might face when trying to carry their favorite gear and focus on designing innovative solutions.

For over 35 years, our dedicated in-house team has been committed to fitting vehicles of all shapes, makes and sizes to ensure we have rack solutions for nearly every vehicle on the road today.

While it’s one thing to design a great rack, it’s quite another to build one. That’s why we have highly skilled design engineers, who pair years of mechanical experience with expert-level material knowledge to ensure the best performance and longest lifespan can be guaranteed.

Once we’ve built a rack, we really beat the heck out of it in testing, so we can say it will stand up to whatever our friends can put it through. From snow-covered mountain passes to remote dirt roads, we’ve tested and fine-tuned every Yakima product to last. And that’s why we can back up all of our work with a limited lifetime warranty.
