Modular Gear-Carrying System

Yakima EXO Modular System

This modular bike rack carries 2 bikes by the wheels. It also swings away, while fully loaded, for rear cargo area access. But the EXO system is more than just a swing away bike rack, it's the ultimate gear-carrying rig! You can easily swap the bike rack for a ski carrier or cargo carrier (sold separately) without removing the base unit from your vehicle. You can also add a second level to pair the bike rack with a cargo carrier to haul all your biking gear, or swap accessories for a skiing or camping adventure (all sold separately). Lastly, because you can carry so much gear 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 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.


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 unit away from your vehicle. This provides full access to your vehicle's rear cargo area and eliminates the need to remove your bikes 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 SwingBase Lever Safety Latch

To close the base, 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.


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.


Yakima SwingBase Lever Safety Latch

Dual arms on the base have tracks with cleats and SpeedKnobs that secure EXO accessories. To swap the bike rack 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 bike rack, 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 and Bikes

Yakima Built-in Locks

This EXO system includes 5 SKS locks to secure the system, the carrier, and your bikes. A lock secures the base to your vehicle's hitch receiver and locks in the arms secure the bike rack. Finally, the bike rack has 2 cable locks to secure your bikes.


EXO System Accessories

Because the EXO System is modular you can swap out the bike rack for a ski rack, cargo carrier, or accessory. You can also add a second tier and another accessory for whatever adventure you have planned. The various configurations are outlined below.


Yakima SnowBank

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.


Yakima Gear Locker

The GearLocker enclosed cargo carrier (Y44VR - sold separately) 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. It also has built-in handles, so it's easy for you to tote all your gear to the campsite in a single trip. Collapsible totes with removable dividers (Y64VR - sold separately) keep your gear organized in the carrier.


Yakima Gear Warrior

If you want to carry coolers, luggage, and other larger, bulky gear, you can add the GearWarrior cargo carrier (Y37VR - sold separately). It has a weight capacity of 250 lbs. A wheel kit (Y97VR - sold separately) converts the GearWarrior into a wagon, so you can wheel your gear to the campsite.


Yakima TopShelfYakima TopShelf Rotated

To transform the system into a 2-tier carrier you will need the TopShelf (Y94VR - sold separately). It attaches to the base unit and holds 1 accessory. With the base rack swung away, you can swing the TopShelf back 180 degrees, with your accessories and gear still attached. This will provide unfettered access to your gear on the lower level.


Yakima Bike Rack and Cargo CarrierYakima Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier

For your biking adventure you can pair the bike rack with an enclosed cargo carrier or a cargo carrier. A 2-tier setup will require you to relocate the bike rack to the top level so you have room to mount your bikes. Using the bike rack on the top level reduces its weight capacity to 40 lbs per bike.


Yakima Ski Rack and Cargo CarrierSki Rack and Cargo Carrier

For your skiing adventure you can swap the bike rack for a ski carrier and add an enclosed cargo carrier or a cargo carrier to transport all your gear to the slopes.


Yakima Enclosed Cargo Carrier and Cargo CarrierYakima Cargo CarrierYakima Cargo Carrier

If you just want to carry gear, you can swap the bike rack for a cargo carrier and add a second cargo carrier. You can outfit the system with an enclosed cargo carrier and a cargo carrier, 2 enclosed cargo carriers, or 2 cargo carriers.


Note: The cargo carrier has a weight capacity of 250 lbs when it's installed on the single-tier system. If you install it on a 2-tier system, it can carry 110 lbs on the bottom tier or 80 lbs on the top tier. Similarly, the enclosed cargo carrier's weight capacity changes based on where it's installed. When utilized on the bottom tier, either alone or in a two-tier system, its weight capacity is 100 lbs. Installed on the top tier, it's weight capacity is 80 lbs.



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 top accessory and replace it with the table once you get to the campsite.

Review from a similar EXO in Hitch Bike Racks


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.

Review from a similar EXO in Hitch Bike Racks


Thanks etrailer The unit arrived as projected,, 4 components all well packaged. The instructions were easily followed and accurate The quality of the construction was good with clean welds and good coating One issue was no keys for the pin locks could be located The design of the attachment is very easy to attach and detachment. You can see the various coolers utilized, couple reasons 1. Larger coolers can’t be accessed, the smaller size allows for open top Access, additionally these can be locked with cable thru handle to Reduce possible theft. I did find the upper tightening knob to be not as secure, as I felt better, In putting a thru bolt and lock but in lue of All in all pleased , we’ll see how it holds up under highway use

Everything fit with no problems. My brother suggested mounting the hitch first to the hanging brackets to bare the weight and then attach to the main frame. Then tighten all bolts to spec. Worked like a charm.

Review from a similar EXO in Hitch Bike Racks


Truly one of the best purchases I have recently made. etrailer provided updates on my order the entire way, to include picture icons of the individuals who received my order, pack my order, and shipped my order, and then links I could use to see the status of my order all the way to my door. Despite the 2 boxes, one bulky and the other heavy, both boxes arrived at the same time undamaged. The carrier came with two wrenches and extra lock tumblers to swap out the lock on the box to match the hitch and carrier locks to all be keyed the same. I was not expecting the added attention to detail and professional touch etrailer and Yakima provided. The swing away carrier is well built and was easy to install on my 2022 Subaru Outback with no issues. The rear hatch opens with the carrier and box closed, but getting out large dog in and out of the back of the car seemed dangerous without swinging the carrier open. The taillights and license plate are visible. I recommend adding reflective tape to the box for added visibility because the rear reflectors on the car are not visible. Accessing the contents in the box on the rear of the car is so much easier than trying to access stuff using the roof storage box.

Review from a similar EXO in Hitch Bike Racks


Got this to use in conjunction with our truck slide in camper. The additional cargo storage space the EXO system offers with the upper deck is enough for our generator, coolers, pop up canopy, bbq grill, chairs and firewood. Being able to swing the entire rack off to the side for access to the camper door is the best part is the system, by doing this also creates a great work station right next to the camper door that I can cook from.

Review from a similar EXO in Hitch Bike Racks


This is an awesome set for adding extra space to your vehicle. The product shipped super fast and was in great condition. There was some issues with the boxes from UPS being torn up but the product inside was perfect. The team at etrailer has been responsive and helpful the entire way. Definitely will purchase products from this team again. Specifically for 2022 and newer Wagoneer owners there is a trick to opening your back hatch with this installed. In the pics below you have to fully swing loosen the top pivot screw about 1/8” to allow the clearance for the hatch to swing by. If all is tight and you only swing the arm to the 90 deg position it will hit when you open the hatch.

This rating is all about the customer service. I haven’t used the gearbox yet. The service and assistance was great every step of the way. The Yakima exo system is sold out everywhere. So, there was extra assistance needed to check inventory. They did and were very helpful. I will certainly order from etrailer again.

  • Is There Any Difference In Purchasing the Yakima EXO Swing Away and 2-Bike Rack Individually?
    The only benefit in ordering the Yakima EXO Swing Away 2-Bike Rack # Y92VR is it all come together as one item for ease of adding to your cart. The Yakima EXO SwingBase Swing Away Hitch Extender # Y34VR comes with 2 additional mating SKS locks that you can add to the Yakima DoubleUp 2 Bike Rack for Modular EXO System # Y24VR or any other Yakima SKS accessory. The cylinders will come with the base no matter if it is purchased individually or as a combo. Once you receive the SwingBase,...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2021 Nissan Murano for a Bike Rack
    I recommend using the etrailer Trailer Hitch # e98907 for your 2021 Nissan Murano because it has a matte black finish that helps it blend in with the trim on your Murano and helps to hide any scratches that might occur from road debris hitting it. Then for a bike rack I recommend checking out the Yakima EXO Swing Away 2-Bike Rack # Y92VR for a few reasons. The first is that the swing-away feature means you can gain complete access to your rear hatch area without removing your bikes, the...

    I would be happy to help you find a hitch receiver and a bike rack for your 2021 Mazda CX-5. I recommend the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver item # EH68VR. The EcoHitch Hidden trailer hitch is designed to be as inconspicuous as possible. The hitch's cross tube bolts onto your vehicle's frame behind your rear bumper. There is no drilling or welding required. Once the hitch is installed, only the 2" receiver will be visible beneath your bumper. I have attached a picture and an installation...

    For e-bikes at the rear of an RV that's also compatible with fat tires like you need we really only have one option with the Hollywood Racks RV Rider # HLY64FR. The Yakima EXO just does not have the weight capacity needed like you noted. There isn't a hinge solution for this rack at this time. I also would not worry about putting lights on the carrier or moving the license plate either.

    Yes, your camera is magnetic and the Yakima EXO SwingBase with DoubleUp 2 Bike Rack - 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount, part # Y92VR, is steel, so the magnet will work. I thought this was an interesting idea, while we do not carry the Haloview cameras, we do have some backup cameras that attach to the vehicle via a magnet.
