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 4 Bike Rack Fully Loaded Display

The sturdy, hitch-mounted Yakima Ridgeback lets you transport 4 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 4 Bike Rack Foldable Arms for Bike Securement

The Ridgeback's dual arms offer excellent bike support.


Yakima RidgeBack 4 Bike Rack Foldable Arms

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 5 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 4 Bike Rack Tilt Open Easy Access Storage

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 4 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 4 Bike Rack Bottle Opener Display

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

It’s relatively heavy but super easy to install and use. No rattles from hitch or bike areas. Red Yakima stickers on the vertical beam are low quality, not firmly attached, and I expect them to peal off. Otherwise, very happy with the rack.

I have the Yakima fullback trunk bike rack and it was really good for my Honda Civic. Now when I traded in the rhe civic for an MDX i need a hitch trailer and a new bike rack. Luckily I find both in etrailer and ordered them. I’ve been using them for a year now and so far it was good. I only use two bikes for this rack so far. I made a mistake because I didnt know there was a full version of this similar to my other trunk bike that comes with built-in security cable. Next time i have to do more research. But dont get me wrong. This is a good tilt bike rack too. Check out the yakima swing arm also.


Comments
I’ve been using it more and most of the time it is installed on my SUV. Also, I bought a locking cable accessory also from Yakima to lock my bikes. So far the bike rack is working good and I have spray some WD40 lubricant to the hinges as a maintenance and keep it on top shape.

Shopped around for different bike racks at different places locally and online. Prices varied quite a bit. I decided to check Etrailer because I have ordered from them before, they have a great selection and their prices are fair and quite often, as low as any you'll find. In this instance, their price was the lowest and they offered free shipping. And for a bike rack, shipping costs are not insignificant. This Yakima RidgeBack4 turned out to be a good choice and I have been extremely satisfied with it. I also purchased the HandCuff Bike Lock as an accessory and it was easy to install on the rack. I would without question recommend Etrailer for your next purchase.

So far all is good. Easy assembly out of the box. Customer support from strainer is terrific. Had a question on modifying the adaptar to fit 1.25 hitch and they answered a call immediately. Product is sturdy. Looks great. And is very easy to operate. Highly recommend

Looks like a very good quality rack. Sturdy, very little movement, and no rattle at the hitch after tightening the hitch lock. 2 bikes (1 fat & 1 hybrid, 80 lbs total) went on easy, and tight hold-downs that also came off easy when I needed. Rotating hitch lock pulls a metal wedge inside the hitch to lock it in place pretty tight, and the partial hitch pin then secures it in place. This is a bit awkward relative to just securing with a full size RV hitch pin, but it's a tighter fit, and it includes the convenient lock, so a trade-off. I only have 2 bikes so no issue with loading 4 bikes, which would be tight. Both my bikes have angled cross-bars but loaded fine without adding tube top adapter. Tires easily clear the bumper and exhaust pipe of 2006 Pathfinder. Thanks to Linda H. for tube top research for my config, and modifying my order. Delivery to Dallas was 2 days after order was placed.

I bought a 2015 Subaru Outback and had a Subaru factory installed 1-1/4 hitch added to my purchase. I did not know at the time that Subaru designed the hitch to fit basically only their branded products. I went to several bike stores trying to find a 4 bike hitch supported by my Subaru. I even took some home and tried to get them to work and none did. I went on the internet and googled some solutions that were either completely wrong or was a solution by some engineer who customized the bike rack. Luckily I reached out to etrailer and spoke to their phone rep. He had heard about challenges with the Subaru hitch and recalled there were a couple of 4 bike hitches that would work. He said he would get back to me. In about a 1/2 hour I got an email about the Yakima RidgeBack. I was hesitant because so many had failed but with the free return policy I gave it a shot. I am not real mechanically inclined but in about an hour I figured out how to mount it on my Subaru (it takes less than 5 minutes now that I know how). I used the rack dozens of times, even hauling 4 bikes on it. This is the second product I have bought from etrailer and could not be happier. They are fast, responsive to questions, and get it right.

The product is working out okay. The springs in two of the strap support mounts have broken. Though they still work its a bit of a hassle releasing the bike from the mount. Still really like the mount. Good solution to the limited amount of racks available to the 2015 Outback with factory installed hitch.

got the bike rack super fast. Had a ton of questions beforehand and etrailer staff were very responsive. The bike rack seems durable and does fit tightly in the hitch. My only concern is the obvious swaying of the bikes when they are attached to the rack - i expected them to not sway as much. We take it on our long bike trip this weekend so we will see what happens. Love that it locks into the hitch

Thanks for checking in. Still love it. Just wish that kid bikes fit better on it.

We've been pretty happy with this rack. My main reason for giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is that it doesn't really fit 4 bikes. We usually can get 3 on it and even then, we have to take off at least one wheel but usually 2. Once our 2nd daughter has a bigger bike (that we cannot fit in the trunk), we won't have a way to transport all of our bikes.


Comments
Thank you for your review. Make sure that you are loading your bikes opposite directions for an even ride. For the very best fit, use bike adapter bars for step through and childrens bikes. Measure the length between the bar that holds your handle bars and the bar that holds your bike seat. Whatever that measures, you can find an adjustable adapter within that length. We have a smaller and larger adapter here:

One year later and I am just as happy as I was the first time I used this bike rack. From roads bikes to my big fat tire bikes, this rack handles it all. Spending the few extra dollars to get this model has been worth every penny as I like being able to open my liftgate when the rack is on the car. I have recommended this rack to multiple people over the year and recommended etrailer due to the service I received.



- Y02458

I was pretty disappointed with this rack from Yakima. Assembly was straightforward and the rack seems well made, but it did not meet my expectations as far as performance. I loaded up 2 bikes, a light road bike and a moderately heavy hybrid and drove for a few hours. The road bike flailed around on the rack despite being properly secured, and I ended up with scratches on the frame. For the drive home I switched locations of the bikes and tried to protect the road bike, but ended up with new scratches anyways. I would NOT recommend this rack if you have a lightweight bike, are concerned about dinging your frame, or if you drive a sedan (maybe the airflow around an SUV would be less of an issue?). If you've got heavier bikes and you don't mind them taking a bit of a beating, this product is probably adequate.



- Y02458

Simply put: great rack! Was a bit concerned after reading some of the less-than-positive reviews how the rack may come off etc. However, had no issues at all (have been using it for over a year now). It even takes speed bumps surprisingly well!

We could not be happier with our Yakima bike rack. Easy to use and handles our 2 bikes with ease. A bit heavy for my wife to attach, but we get it done no problems. Additionally etrailer was great to work with and their website is fantastic.

I liked this rack for normal shaped adult bikes. Unfortunatley, kid bikes and several full suspension bikes are difficult or impossible to fit on this rack. It is also difficult to fit 4 bikes on the rack that are different shapes. Hindsight, I woud have gotten a tire mount rear bike rack instead.

Purchased this rack for wife.... Very easy for her to use.... The extra tube top adapters we also purchased were a must for her bike and my daughters bike due to not having the top bar like mens bikes.... You may be able to get away from using them but they make it alot easier.... Overall we love the rack

Great product, great price. Rack is very easy to install and very well made, albeit a little heavy. No assembly required out of the box which is fantastic, plus a very informative how-to video on Yakima's website. Fast shipping from etrailer - would buy from again. Thanks!!

    If you look at page 3 of the attached installation instructions for the Yakima RidgeBack Bike Rack, part # Y02458, you can see a drawing that has a box with 1-1/4 inch in it.

  • Will Yakima RidgeBack Safety Pin Work with a 2-1/2" Hitch and 2" Reducer Sleeve on 2017 Ram 3500
    The safety pin on the Yakima RidgeBack 4 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting Item # Y02458 is basically a fail safe. What really holds the bike rack in the shank in the built-in anti-rattle wedge that is in the shank. But for peace of mind the safety pin will stick into the 2-1/2 inch hitch with the adapter far enough to be effective. The pin part of it is 1-1/4 inches long. Since it is a fail safe and designed to be that short it will not go all the way through the receiver.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Subaru Forester with Factory Hitch
    Subaru factory 1-1/4 inch hitches are pretty bizarre in their design because of the very short distance from the center pin hole to the outside edge of the hitch. Yakima is currently the only rack manufacturer that we recommend for the Subaru OEM hitches so for a 4 bike rack that would work well for you I would recommend the RidgeBack 4 Bike Rack # Y02458. Since you have a Class I hitch you would be limited to only carrying 2 bikes. If the Outback you end up going with has a Class II...

  • Knob of Yakima Ridgeback Bike Rack Just Spins and Will Not Loosen
    The knob on the Ridgeback # Y02458 turns freely when it is locked. First make sure that it is unlocked. If it is or if it still will not turn you pay have to pull back or push in on the knob while turning it at the same time so there is enough tension to engage the mechanisms inside the bike rack shank.

    The Yakima RidgeBack, part # Y02458, is a 4-bike rack that does fit the Class II 1-1/4 inch factory hitch on a Subaru Outback. The factory Subaru hitch recivers have very little space between the end of the receiver and the pin hole. This causes accessories which shorter shanks to not be very stable in the hitch. Yakima bike racks tend to have a longer shank that helps with this.

The built-in anti-rattle knob can be locked and when it is you cannot pull the carrier out of the receiver. There is a cable lock to lock the bikes to the carrier which is sold separately. It is # Y02466. I have linked a video review of the bike carrier for you.
