Yakima produces uniquely engineered, vehicle specific Landing Pad sets. The Landing Pads are the interface between the Yakima SkyLine Tower and your vehicle's factroy installed connection points. The pads attach to the vehicle and SkyLine Towers secure to the pad sets. Includes snap-on covers for protection when 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.
Yakima JetStream load bars are strong, quiet and aerodynamic providing maximum capacity, no whistling or howling and low wind drag. The aluminum BoxBeam construction has a dedicated slot for tower attachment and a separate t-slot track for mounting certain carriers.
The weight capacity for this vehicle base roof rack is up to 165 pounds evenly distributed. Distance from the front load bar to the rear is predetermined and usually between 28.25 center to center.
