Ridgeback Hitch Pin Diagram

Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle. However, to mount certain bikes or to keep your bike level on the rack, a bike adapter bar may be required. Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.

Yakima RidgeBack 5 Bike Rack Loaded

The sturdy, hitch-mounted Yakima Ridgeback lets you transport 5 bikes on the back of your vehicle. The rack has dual arms that offer excellent bike support and anti-sway cradles with ZipStrip ratcheting cradle straps for quick and easy bike loading. The mast tilts away from your vehicle for cargo area access. And installation is tool-free with an integrated anti-rattle device that locks the rack to your vehicle.

Folding Dual Support Arms

Yakima RidgeBack 5 Bike Rack Dual Foldable Arms

The Ridgeback's dual arms offer excellent bike support.

Yakima RidgeBack 5 Bike Rack Arms Fold Down Visual

And they fold down flat against the mast for parking clearance and compact storage. To fold them down, pull the grey TriggerFinger control lever on top of the mast. When you're ready to load bikes again, simply lift the arms back up until they lock into place with an audible click.

Anti-Sway Cradles with Ratcheting ZipStrip Straps

Yakima RidgeBack 2 Bike Rack Anti Sway Craddles

The RidgeBack has anti-sway cradles that grip your bike frame at 3 different points - twice along the top bar and once along a downward bar, such as a seat post. This third point of contact helps to prevent sway and bike-to-bike contact.

Yakima RidgeBack 5 Bike Rack Ratchet Straps Visual

Ratcheting ZipStrips let you quickly and easily secure your bikes in the cradles. These straps require none of the tugging and stretching that conventional straps require. Simply insert the strap into the buckles on the cradle, and push it down until it's snug around your bike frame. The ZipStrips can be removed quickly by pressing the release levers on the sides of each anti-sway cradle.

A layer of TPE padding on each cradle absorbs road shock and minimizes vibrations.

Tool-Free Installation with SpeedKnob

Yakima RidgeBack 2 Bike Rack SpeedKnob Tighten with Anti Rattle

The Ridgeback has an integrated SpeedKnob that allows tool-free installation. The knob controls an anti-rattle wedge on the shank. Simply turn the knob to tighten the bike rack shank in your hitch receiver. This not only secures the rack to your vehicle, but also reduces noise and movement of the rack in your hitch. An included hitch pin is attached to the bike rack shank with a lanyard so you won't lose it.

The rack works with both 1-1/4" and 2" hitches. To use it in a 1-1/4" hitch, simply remove the red adapter and wedge extension with the included Allen key.

Easy Access to Rear Cargo Area

Yakima RidgeBack 5 Bike Rack Rear Cargo Access

The Ridgeback's mast tilts so you won't need to remove the rack for rear hatch clearance. And the UpperHand control lever is conveniently located near the top of the mast, so you won't need to bend over to reach a lever or pin at the base of the rack.

Bike Rack Security

Yakima RidgeBack locking SpeedKnob

The SpeedKnob includes a Yakima Same Key System (SKS) lock core. This lock prevents a would-be thief from being able to loosen the knob and remove the rack from your hitch. Add a HandCuff cable lock (Y02466 - sold separately) to secure your bikes to the rack.

SKS cores can be swapped out if you own other Yakima products and want to use the same key to lock them all.

Compact Storage

Yakima Ridgeback 5 Bike Rack Lays Flat for Easy Storage

The RidgeBack easily folds flat for compact storage. Use the TriggerFinger control lever to fold the arms down. Then use the UpperHand lever to fold up the shank.

Yakima RidgeBack 5 Bike Bottle Openers

The RidgeBack includes 2 built-in, machined-steel bottle openers in case your beverage of choice doesn't have a twist-off cap.

Sturdy, hitch-mounted rack carries 5 bikes on folding dual arms with anti-sway cradles. ZipStrip ratcheting cradle straps quickly and easily secure your bikes to the rack. Rack tilts for cargo area access. Tool-free installation with locking knob.

- Y02459

Love it. Super easy to install, and ready to go right out of the box. Fits my kids bikes as well as mine. The tilt feature is easy to use, and the unit doesn’t feel too heavy, so anyone can use it. I was a bit concerned the width of the rack would block my back up camera view, but I can still see around it well enough, at least on my Kia Telluride.

- Y02459

Everything works as it should. Hard to get multiple bikes with drop-down handlebars immediately adjacent to each other on the rack, but no problem getting them all on there with kids bikes in the middle.

- Y02459

Works great on our Subarus. We've had 5 bikes on it a few times! TWO 20" bmx bikes, ONE 24" girls mountain bike, TWO 26" Mountains bikes for me n wife... It was a tight fit, a few scratches from bikes rubbing against each other, but it is doable! I'd recommend it for anyone that needs a good strong carrier.

- Y02459

Rack is very easy to install and remove, and fits well with no rattle in the 2" receiver. Loading bikes is easy and it will, indeed, hold 5 bikes with relatively little effort. The only negatives I have are 1) Unless I use Yakima's custom locking cable for this rack, there is no good way to lock bicycles to the rack 2) It wasn't clear to me that I would need adapter bars (8002531) for kids bikes. I've always managed to get them on my older racks, but not the Yakima. I suspect that most modern racks would need these bars. Overall, very satisfied.

- Y02459

Fantastic! We love the Yakima bike rack, have used it multiple times since purchase, including on a 600-mile round trip. Met all of my expectations. Bikes move a little, and at first it was disconcerting. But even over large bumps at 70+ mph there was no evidence of any shifting of the load, and the bikes remained secure. It is quite difficult to fit 5 bikes (2 adult and 3 children's bikes) on the bike rack, but with some creativity I was able to make it happen. I can't imagine how you would fit 5 adult bikes on here, however. Overall I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. Great service from the folks at eTrailer.com as well! I received the package within 3 days of purchase (at 3 pm in the afternoon, no less!).

- Y02459

This Yakima 5 bike rack is exactly what I needed. It's very easy to mount and very sturdy.

The Yakima rack is great. Very solid and easy to use. It takes me a few minutes to mount it. 5 bikes ride just fine.

I have owned this bike rack for one year. I has travelled thousands of miles on the back of multiple vehicles hauling usually two adult bikes or two adult and two youth bikes. Getting five bikes on here is not really possible for bikes with wide handlebars and standard pedals. The rack is still in very good shape and is easy to store and install. The tilt function allows the empty rack to move out of the way of the SUV hatch opening.

- Y02459

Like recent reviews i did my homework to find the concerns that prior purchasers had about the product. 1 was that the bike rack would move all over the place as if it was going to break. While driving that concern passed the test. 2 difficulty for 5 bike install,buy the bike adapter bars they help and are necessary, very easy to install rack and bikes if done correctly. I am very satisfied with the bike rack and would recommend. our first trip was 700 miles round trip on a truck 4x4 very bumpy compared to regular trucks and cars so it passed the double beating.

I was grateful to so many others who wrote reviews on this website and praised the customer service. I was looking for a trailer to haul 5 bikes including womens and kids bikes and have it work on my husbands Jeep wrangler, my daughters Subaru Outback, occasionally an RV and mainly my Toyota Sienna that doesn't even have a hitch yet. With so many options online and seemingly different products for each one, I wanted help to know if there was any product that could help me meet all me needs, so I decided to call Etrailer and get some help. They were amazing just like everyone said! He recommend the Yakima Ridgeback which would meet all our different hitch needs and the best selling Kuat Ubar adaptor bars that would make it work for our women's and kids bikes and different hitch needs. And the best surprise of all is that he told me they even carried hitch packages for my Toyota! I hadn't even expected that. The quote I received from my Toyota dealer for installing a hitch was going to cost me over $1000! But Etrailer sent me one for under $200! I am excited to get our whole family out biking more together this summer and thanks to etrailer we got everything we needed and all shipped to Alaska for only a hundred bucks in less than 2 weeks! The man on the phone explained how my husband could install the hitch himself, but after looking at it yesterday, he decided to take it to a local shop where they can raise the whole car for the install. But that will still be cheaper than what I thought I would have to pay before. We are planning to get the hitch on our van this week and try out the bike trailer by the weekend. Thanks for everything etrailer!!

have being sold my old 4 bike rack and with additional riders graduating to bigger bikers among our ranks (we have 4 kids) it was needed to upgrade to this unit. Easy to install and better system than the old wobble bolt that i had to drag a wrench instead of the knob now a days! it's a tight for 5 bikes but doable! recommended

  • Most Versatile Hitch Mounted Bike Rack for Use with Multiple Different Types of Bikes
    The most amount of bikes you can carry on a hitch mounted bike rack is five with a hanging bike rack like the Yakima RidgeBack 5 Bike Rack part # Y02459. However, a hanging bike rack like the above is not your most versatile option because it will require an adapter bar like the Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar part # Y02531 for bikes with an alternative frame which are pretty common. The most versatile option is a platform bike rack but this will only allow you to carry up to four bikes. Out...

The trailer hitch that I recommend for your Honda Odyssey is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76025 because it has a hidden crosstube so that only the receiver is visible.

It fits 1-1/4" and 2" hitches and can support 5 bikes up to 40 pounds each (up to 150 pounds total). It has an anti-rattle SpeedKnob.

  • Can 5 Bikes Really Fit on the Yakima RidgeBack Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Carrier
    I am sure, it can fit 5 bikes, at least it has spots for 5 bikes. But it is a challenge to get 5 on there on any 5 bike hanging rack. If you have not done so already, remove the bikes and then move the cradles forward/backward as needed. You will probably want the cradles at the front and back to be all the way to the front and back, respectively. Then it is a matter of turning pedals and Tetris-like maneuvering to get all the bikes on there. This is an issue with most 4 and 5 bike racks....

    Given the slight price difference between the Yakima RidgeBack 4, # Y02458, and the RidgeBack 5, # Y02459 I recommend going with the 5. What you are thinking is true. It is easier to load 4 bikes on a 5 bike rack then it is on a 4 bike rack. Plus you still get all of the same features on the 5 as you do with the 4.

    You are correct that a light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch like # 24848 has a 200-lb tongue weight (TW) capacity. However, when it comes to bike racks there is another factor that comes into play, leverage on the hitch tube. The more bikes the rack holds the longer it tends to be, naturally. This increased distance from the hitch to the outermost bike translates into extreme leverage forces on the hitch tube, forces that would damage a light-duty Class I hitch.
