Modular Gear-Carrying System

Yakima EXO Modular System

This modular system includes everything you need for your biking adventure. The DoubleUp bike rack carries 2 bikes by the wheels, and the GearWarrior cargo carrier is perfect for hauling coolers and other bulky gear. The two-tier base system swings away, while fully loaded, for rear cargo area access, and the top tier can be removed if you only need to carry 1 accessory. Using the cargo carrier on the lower level, without utilizing the top tier, increases the weight capacity to 250 lbs.

Because the Yakima EXO system is modular it lets you transform your hitch into the ultimate gear-carrying rig. You can outfit the system with various accessories (sold separately) to carry all your biking, camping, and skiing gear. The system is compatible with a bike rack, ski rack, cargo carrier, and an enclosed cargo carrier, and you can easily swap them out to match any outdoor activity. You can also add base camp accessories, like a camping table. Lastly, because you can carry two accessories on the back of your vehicle, it frees up space on your roof to carry even more gear.

Wheel-Mount Bike Rack

Yakima EXO SYstem bike rack

The DoubleUp bike rack has ratcheting hooks that grab your bikes firmly by the front wheel - not the frame. It's perfect for carrying nearly any bike, including bikes with carbon frames, disc brakes, thru axles, or full suspensions. To load a bike, simply place your front wheel in the cradle, rotate the arm up and over the wheel, and press down firmly on the ratcheting hook. The hooks also fold down when not in use.

Yakima Adjustable Rear Wheel Holders

Large rear-wheel holders accommodate bikes with a wide variety of tire widths, including fat bikes. They pivot front to back, automatically adjusting to your wheelbase - no need for sliding and tightening. The wheels secure in place with the ratcheting straps built into each holder.

Cargo Carrier

Yakima EXO SYstem cargo carrier

The GearWarrior cargo carrier lets you carry coolers, luggage, firewood, and other large, bulky gear. It's easy to detach the carrier from the base unit, making it convenient for two people to tote all your gear to the campsite in one trip. You can also attach it to a wheel kit (Y97VR - sold separately) to convert the carrier into a wagon.

Swing-Away Design for Rear Cargo Area Access

Yakima EXO System with bike rack and cargo carrier

The hinged arm on the base lets you swing the base away from your vehicle. This provides full access to your vehicle's rear cargo area and eliminates the need to remove your bikes or the cargo carrier when you're unloading your vehicle or letting your dog hop in or out of the back.

Yakima SwingBase Lever Safety Latch Demonstration Swinging Open

To open the hinged arm, simply rotate the release knob counterclockwise until it's unscrewed from the arm, pull out on the spring pin, and swing the rack away from the rear of your vehicle. The arm will lock in place when it's fully extended, so your hands are free to open your hatch and remove cargo.

Yakima TopShelf swings 180 degrees

In addition to allowing access to your vehicle's cargo area, the EXO can also provide access to your gear stored in the cargo carrier. Once the base unit is fully extended, you can swing the top tier back 180 degrees, with your bikes and the bike rack still attached. This will provide unfettered access to your gear on the lower level.

Yakima SwingBase Lever Safety Latch

To close the base unit, just pull the release lever at the hinge and swing the extended arm back into position. Once you hear the spring pin lock into place, rotate the knob clockwise until it's tight.

If you leave the base swung open for an extended period of time, you'll need to install the included jack stand to help stabilize the arm. Turn the rod on the jack to fine tune the height so the system stays level.

Easy Installation and Setup

Yakima SwingBase Lever Safety Latch

To install the EXO system, simply slide the shank on the base unit into your 2" hitch receiver, insert the threaded hitch pin, and tighten it down with the included 24-mm wrench. The threaded hitch pin also reduces noise and movement in your hitch. The second tier bolts to the base to provide the second level of storage.

Yakima SwingBase Lever Safety Latch

Dual arms on each tier have tracks with cleats and SpeedKnobs that secure EXO accessories. To swap the bike rack or cargo carrier for a different accessory, undo the latches on the sides of the arms, rotate the SpeedKnobs to allow the cleats inside the tracks to free the rack or carrier, and remove it. Next, put the new accessory in the tracks, rotate the SpeedKnobs so the cleats secure it, then close each latch.

Complete Security for EXO System, Accessories, and Bikes

Yakima Built-in Locks

This EXO system includes 10 SKS locks to secure the system, carriers, and your bikes. The two tiers have locks that secure them to each other and to your vehicle's hitch receiver. Both tiers also have locks in the arms to secure the DoubleUp bike rack and the GearWarrior. Finally, the bike rack has 2 cable locks to secure your bikes. Because the GearWarrior doesn't use any, this EXO configuration will come with 2 extra lock cores.

The SKS locks for the system come with the 2 base units - 5 with each. Because they are packaged separately, the locks for the top tier and bottom tier probably won't be keyed alike. However, they can be swapped out to match each other and even your other Yakima gear.

EXO System Accessories

Because the EXO System is modular you can add accessories for whatever adventure you have planned, or swap them out for other activities.

Yakima BackDeck

The BackDeck camping table (Y84VR - sold separately) is perfect for use at the campsite. It lets you prep meals, lay out your gear, and even mix drinks at the end of the day. Simply remove the bike rack and install the table.

Yakima BackDeck

The SnowBank (Y57VR - sold separately) is perfect for your ski trip. It carries up to 5 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards. It has an expanding hinge that accommodates thick skis and large buttons that let you access your skis even if you're wearing gloves. Simply remove the bike rack and install this carrier in its place.

Yakima Gear Warrior

The GearLocker enclosed cargo carrier has 10 cu ft of storage space for carrying helmets, clothes, and other gear. It keeps your gear secure, dry, and away from prying eyes. The GearLocker can be installed on either the top or bottom tier and can be paired with the GearWarrior cargo carrier to maximize cargo space, if you don't need to carry your bikes.

Yakima EXO Swing Away 2 Bike Rack w/ Cargo Carrier - 2" Hitches - Y54ZR

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (260 Customer Reviews)

This EXO system is perfect for your biking adventure. Bike rack secures your bikes by the wheels, and cargo carrier holds coolers, luggage, firewood, and other large, bulky gear. System swings away to provide cargo area access.


This thing is well built and Heavy! should work well for my needs. definitely have to load heavier things on the driver's side as it is off center and tilts to the passenger side when not loaded with gear. I also got the tabletop which now I realize is useless for my application. I am using this on my truck with a truck camper in the bed. this makes the table attachment shoulder high. wheels for the wheel kit at pneumatic and flat so I guess I will have to add air every time I intend on using them, I thought the description said they were solid wheels, but I must have read something wrong cause they are definitely phonematic.


Great transaction. Fast shipping and good follow up! I would definitely order from you guys again!


Great customer service! Definitely recommend etrailer.



We use this for extra storage in our class B campervan. I'm able to store all the bulky items that don't fit inside the van like chairs, mats, and our grill. I like that it doesn't block the license plate or taillights and still allows access to the Thule bike rack. The SwingBase allows both doors to open for full access into the rear of the van.


Very easy to install. Total installation time (not counting taking photos and opening boxes) was approximately 15 minutes. The only issue I encountered was the left handle on the lower rack had a broken piece inside the locking pin assembly. Other than that, everything was quick and smooth for a single person job. This will greatly assist my business by allowing more room for passenger comfort on long trips to and from airports with a large party. Looking forward to putting this to use.


We have owned our Yakima swing away cargo carrier for a year and it has been a wonderful addition to our Rubicon. It gives us all the room for our 2 large dogs while carrying our luggage to visit our family. It has been so helpful; it stays on the Rubicon all the time! The way the carrier swings out of the way was critical for the dogs to get access to the rear of the Rubicon. Can't live without our Yakima carrier!


Product meets all expectations. etrailer quickly replaced a broken Knob Assembly which was damaged during shipping. Vehicle is an Airstream Interstate 24GT. The swing assembly does restrict the Sprinter's right barn door from opening completely, but not a significant issue. We did add our own rear turn signal lights and license plate holder since the factory rear lights restricted ground clearance.


Installed on 2017 Transit 350HD.

order on etrailer and the experience was great; really fast shipping and great communication. I was surprised to see it picked and shipped so quick so late in the day, especially for how big this is. It comes in 4 boxes; one giant one and 3 moderately huge ones.

The Yakima EXO system is top notch, great construction. Excellent fit and finish, and pretty easy to assemble. Read the instructions and follow each step and you'll have no issues. I have a bad back and was able to assemble myself, the heaviest part is the swing away hitch - if you can lift about 40-50 pounds it is going to be easy to assemble without any help. I went slow and it only took me about 30-45 minutes.

Tips - the bike rack portion it's not super clear that the rails should not be tight when you put the upper bike rack on. Just set everything in place and it will make getting the bolts through easier.

Pros - it's as advertised. Super sturdy, no shaking/rocking, easy to use. The people who designed this system should be high fiving themselves, it's great.

Cons - none really other than one minor customer experience gripe - you're given enough lock centers to re-key multiple Yakima EXO accessories, I think 4 are included...but it does not come with a master key for removing the lock center. You'll need to buy this separately or do like I did and make your own. Considering they put the effort into including replacement lock centers and give you every tool you'd need, it's a weird oversight.

That being said once you replace the lock center on the cargo carrier you only need 1 key for all of the locks on the system which is awesome.

Ford Transit specific issue I ran into:

When the swing away is open there is a safety latch that holds it open so it will not fall closed on you. This gets in the way of the passenger door opening. But if you remove this (at your risk) you can open the passenger door fully and if you rotate the upper shelf you can even open the door entirely against the side of the van. Also it will 100% block your camera and license plate if it's door mounted.

Absolutely stoked on this system. The cargo box is awesome with internal tie downs and taking it apart to store it in the garage only takes a minute or two. I love how easy the cargo box indexes in place. Every aspect of it has been super satisfying to play with.


Unfortunately we can’t open rear of 2018 expedition with the top box in place. One of the knob locking pins is/was broken in shipping. I also wish all of the items were keyed the same. This whole setup is 5 keys. I’ll probably call a locksmith and have them all re-keyed if possible.


This is the perfect setup for family road trips when you need a little extra dry storage. I mounted this on my Rivian R1S and saw no change in range, as opposed to a roof mount system. I only wish Yakima would incorporate a full-size spare mount for the EXO. Also had a favorable experience with etrailer customer service, as one of the locking pins arrived damaged. They were quick to get a replacement part to me at no cost. I couldn't be happier with the EXO or etrailer. I know that sounds corny, but it's true.


Couldn’t love this more, adds all of the extra space needed. Locks integrated throughout make very easy to secure. Love that the cargo boxes can be removed individually, packed and returned to brackets. Two improvements which we would improve, locks are all keyed differently and would be a bit easier for us if they were keyed alike. Also, has a significant wobble once affixed to the hitch. We were able to fix temporarily with shims, and will be ordering a hitch tightener for future use. Not sure if this is a universal issue or specific to our vehicle type.


I think this is a great product except for the locking pin in the full swing out position doesn’t allow the right rear door to open fully. (Check photo included). If Yakima made a 1/2” shorter pin then it would allow the door to open correctly.


Major flaw in the design. When using the box mounted on the bottom rack, You have to rotate the upper board/box rack 180° entirely in order to open the box… this isn’t super difficult but you actually have to swing the entire rack (upper & lower) out to the side to rotate the upper rack. This is extremely annoying if you just need to get something out of the box in a hurry. Additionally the turn knob/handle where you release the rack to swing out to the side, is right where your wheels throw all the mud, snow, dirt etc. so this makes for a messy event if you just simply want to get into box as stated earlier or in the back of an SUV after driving through any type of in-climate conditions. Another flaw was the clip rings should have been made with lanyard as we lost ours day one. Do your self a favor and by extra clips from the hardware store and keep in the box.
Aside from the flaws, the structural integrity is excellent, the mounting pin through the hitch is more than safe and secure, again a bit annoying if you want you remove the entire rack system quickly or even just after a trip. We ended up just leaving ours attached all winter due to the inconvenience. The box is made well, the rack holder’s are also made well. Quality of the product is high, just wish Yakima would have put a little more thought into the ease and accessibility of the rack in the way that THULE typically does. A simple 30° tilt up feature on the upper rack would have been perfect, additionally a 30° tilt down on the hitch mounting point for the entire rack to tilt would have given so much more ease to accessing the back of the vehicle.
We like the overall product and after spending so much money on it we have no choice but to keep it for years to come. Just might have to weld my own tilting brackets to ease the painful transitions.


Great bike rack and cargo carrier. I use it on my camper van and it is very functional and creates a ton of extra storage. Swing away rack works extremely well!


This system is great for when you need just a little more car than you have. These lockers work great, are 100% water proof and easy to remove to put on your other accessories.


The unit is mounted on our class b RV and has performed flawlessly in the year that we’ve owned it. The swing away feature allows us to open the back doors. Next purchase will be the bike rack. 4 instead of 5 stars only because of no response by the Yakima support team to a question asked just after we purchased it. E-trailer was great to work with


Good design with minor flaws. After 12 months of using main frame and one level container I have found rusting pin in the swing hinge and box perforation,probably caused by a small rock picked by the rear tire. This year I purchased the frame for the upper tier and a 2nd container. The upper rotaing frame is loosely fitted and requires some gymnastics to fit in the stabilizing screw. It is especially difficult with the upper container loaded. The securing screw should have a butterfly handle and a pilot point, like the one in the lower level.


We bought this set of back of the car storage carriers a year ago so we wouldn't have to rent a U-Haul trailer for vacation. Just finished our second month long trip.
We love it. Sturdy, well engineered. Would recommend it to anyone.


Fairly easy to assemble, very strong/durable, a bit heavy. I added DOT reflective tape for improved visibility to other drivers. I would not suggest leaving this on your vehicle as other drivers are not expecting it in a parking lot, which could lead to an accident.


This was actually a really good bike holder. However, it is made for an inferior swing away system. Maybe if it was used in combination with a different platform that matched its quality.


It was necessary to fix a problem in parts to get the rack to your customer service was only, "it does not work? Send it back" I ended up calling Yakima directly to make the rack work.


All of the Yakima items I bought from you are awesome!!! They are very good quality and are great to use. I bought the swing arm , the box , the table. I just went camping for first time this year. Everything worked great. Thanks


We love it! It is easy to put on and remove. It is easy to put on and remove. The EXO system has been great for us. It is meticulously designed and rugged. Very functional and we can travel with peace of mind that on our hitch.


This rack works great. Yakima is top quality. Thank you to e trailer for making it easy to get.

  • Recommending a Cargo Carrier and Bike Rack for 2013 Nissan Pathfinder
    The most appealing option for transporting cargo and bikes at the same time on your 2013 Nissan Pathfinder is the Yakima EXO Swing Away 2 Bike Rack w/ Cargo Carrier - 2" Hitches # Y54ZR which allows you to haul a pair of bikes up to 40 pounds each and 110 lbs of cargo. As an additional benefit, both the bike rack and cargo carrier can be used individually. I have added links to video review of this Exo system for you to check out.

  • Should I Order a Set of Identically-Keyed Locks for the Yakima EXO System?
    All of the locks that come with the Yakima EXO System with 2 Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier - 2" Hitches # Y54ZR automatically come as keyed-alike locks. With that being said, you will not need to buy any additional lock cores/keys in order to have them all matching.

  • What Is The Distance Between The Cargo Carrier And The Bike Rack On The Yakima EXO Swing Away?
    I spoke with Yakima, and they informed me that the: -Yakima EXO Swing Away 2 Bike Rack w/ Cargo Carrier # Y54ZR measures 23" from the bottom of the cargo rack to the bottom of the double bike rack. So with that being said, your 20" tall Yeti 110 cooler will fit perfectly! Along with your Yeti 110, this cargo carrier can also be used to carry up to 110lbs, and the two bike carrier can haul up to 40lbs per bike.

    The 101 lbs that you're referring to on the Yakima EXO System with 2 Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier # Y54ZR is actually for the base system. If you combine that with the 37 bs for the bike rack and 22.5 lbs for the cargo carrier it comes out to 160.5 lbs for the whole system. When I added everything up according to Yakima's specs all of the pieces totaled up to just over 161 lbs. Hopefully this clears things up for you!

    For a more vertical option we have the Yakim Exo Swing Away part # Y54ZR which is a carrier that has a bike rack above it and can pivot away from rear of vehicle.

    Yes the Yakima EXO Swing Away 2 Bike Rack w/ Cargo Carrier - 2" Hitches # Y54ZR should fit for your 2013 Kia Sorento. It is a very versatile rack that can really help get all of your gear where you need it. You will need to check the distance from the hitch pin hole on your hitch to the back of your bumper.

    Unfortunately, I was unable to see the exact image you are seeing. For carrying bikes and a cargo carrier the Yakima EXO is our best option.

    The Yakima EXO Swing Away 2 Bike Rack w/ Cargo Carrier - 2" Hitches # Y54ZR is an excellent 2 bike rack option which can be used with or without a cargo basket. There are many other Exo system items that can be used with this system, one of which is an enclosed carrier box # Y44VR. However, your existing cargo carrier would not work with this system, only the EXO carriers. Check out the videos of this system.
