Yakima produces uniquely engineered, vehicle specific, Landing Pad sets. The Landing Pads are the interface between the Yakima SkyLine Tower and your vehicle's factory installed connection points. The pads attach to the vehicle and SkyLine Towers connect to the pad sets. Includes snap-on covers for protection when the tower is removed.
The Yakima SkyLine Towers offers a quick and secure connection to the landing pads for a worry-free rack system. The SkyLine Tower connects and removes to the landing pad by simply opening or closing the tower cover. The tower also features BarBed with pitch adjustment that levels the front and rear crossbar to adapt to the curved styling of modern vehicle roof lines.
Yakima JetStream load bars are strong, quiet and aerodynamic providing maximum capacity, no whistling or howling and low wind drag. The aluminum box beam construction has a dedicated slot for tower attachment and a separate t-slot track for mounting certain carriers.
The weight capacity for this vehicle roof rack is 99 pounds evenly distributed. The load bar length 50 inches. Distance from the front load bar to the rear is fixed at 27.5-inches center to center or an alternative 40-inches center to center for long loads.
