Enjoy the versatility of a wheel mount without breaking the bank by opting for the Yakima Raptor Aero. This roof-mounted bike carrier promotes a wide range of fits, installs easily and works with most crossbar systems - all for a price well below comparable wheel mounts.

bike mounted on carrier

The wheel-mount design of the Raptor Aero allows you to load your bike in seconds without removing the front tire, saving time and hassle when compared with fork-mount carriers.

vertical armvertical arm on bike

Raptor Aero features an adjustable, vertical arm that cradles your bike's downtube. The jaws positioned at the end of the arm adjust with the turn of an SKS-lockable knob to secure the bike to the carrier. The Raptor fits most bikes with downtubes from 1" to 3". Carrier accepts bikes with non-round downtubes, provided that they are no larger than 3" in any direction, and easily accommodates disc brakes, thru axles and non-traditional suspensions.

The Raptor Aero wheel trays accept most tires 20" and larger, holding them in place with ratcheting straps. Straps slide along wheel tray to accommodate bikes of various lengths.

You can lock the wheel tray to your crossbars by replacing the knobs on the bottom of the mounting brackets with up to three Yakima Accessory Lock Housings (Y07220), which require the purchase of additional SKS Cores.

rear Mighty Mounts

The carrier mounts to round, square, and most factory crossbars when used with included Universal MightyMounts.

Raptor Aero installs with no tools and folds flat against roof rack when not in use, reducing wind resistance.

Re-Engineer! I found this rack not fitting my expectations. The mounting provisions needed for my Xterra were sufficient and the installation overall wasn't too painful. The problem didn't exist until I had the bike mounted and headed off for a quick drive to ride in the hills. Midway to my destination, I was curious how the bike was doing on top (never had this style of rack before). So, I pulled over to see if the bike was staying solid up there. Much to my surprise, the bike was severely listing to one side. I re-examined all the provision and the jaw clamp to see if it was too loose. Nope, the jaw was tight. I readjusted the bike in the upright position and tighened it even more, to ensure it was keeping the bike in place. Headed off again, just a few miles down the road, which did have some modest turns along the way. Once again, I stopped to see if the bike was doing well. And there the bike was......listing to the side again. Bear in mind, this is a large frame Quintana Roo Lucero. The wheel sets are 700's and nothing unusual about its overall dimensions. Tried this "stop and go" check for the next 40 miles. Much to my displeasure, I kept finding the bike listing from one side or the other. From that point on, I never used the bike rake again. Since then, I have gone to a hitch rack and have been pleased with it ever since. And, yes, its a Yakama.

I have same problem with my racks early on but it was fixed when I adjusted the rear wheel holder attached to the crossbar to correct the vertical position of the bikes. To do this you need to slide the rear clamp Without the bike more to the nearest side of your vehicle depending on where you install your rack. If it is on the driver side, move the rear clamp attached to the cross bar nearest to the driver side until you find the Frame Holder standing on to almost vertical position. Just experiment on to this procedure till you find the best position for your bike to stand vertically. I will make a youtube video soon.

Bear in mind that your roof is curved, and presumably so are your cross bars. So unless the tray is mounted dead-center, it will appear to list as its perpedicular to the roof. Otherwise, something is not tight enough, and perhaps your Mightymounts are the culprit.

Great Product..The Yakima decals on the wheel tray were upside down, sure would like a new set of red decals.

Yakima makes great products, and this roofrack is no exception. Very pleased. Was quite easy to install and use. But, don’t forget that the bike is up there...done that. Not pretty, but it was easy to get a new piece for the rack.
