Yakima 8007388 CBX Solar Crossbar Fitment and Spread

Cargo boxes, bags, and baskets are great for transporting gear on your vehicle's roof. A cargo box has the added benefits of an aerodynamic shape that reduces drag and wind noise, a hard shell to protect your gear, and a higher degree of weather resistance. And you can latch and lock a cargo box for added protection against theft.

The CBX Solar has 16 cu ft of storage space for your skis, snowboards, or camping gear. An integrated solar panel ensures access to power at the campsite or any stop along your journey. The aerodynamic, low-profile design helps to reduce drag and wind noise, and the locking lid conveniently opens from either side of your vehicle. The box has internal tie-down points for securing cargo, and the quick-release mounting system offers easy, tool-free installation.

Sunflare Solar Panel with USB Ports

Yakima 8007388 CBX Solar Integrated Solar Panel

An integrated solar panel lets you easily charge devices while off the grid and is perfect for maintaining a small campsite. The heavy-duty panel is designed tough and won't crack from impacts or extreme temperatures. Capable of generating up to 36-watts (5-volts), the panel will smartly provide energy even on cloudy days when partial sunlight is all that is available.

Yakima 8007388 CBX Solar 2 USB Ports

2 USB ports located inside the box let you easily harness the available energy to charge small battery packs, phones, tablets, cameras, headlamps, camping lanterns, and other devices.

Durable Construction

Yakima 8007388 CBX Solar Automotive Grade ABS Plastic

This cargo box is constructed of durable ABS plastic that is lightweight yet rigid and impact resistant. It has a durable black finish that is stylish and less susceptible to chips, scratches, and harsh UV rays when compared with paint.

Dual-Side Opening Lid

Yakima 8007388 CBX Solar Dual Side Opening Lid

The CBX features a dual-side opening lid so you can load and access your gear from either side of your vehicle. Integrated, grip-friendly handles help you easily open and close the lid even with one hand. The lid has lifters that ensure it opens and closes smoothly. There is also a convenient pull cord on the inside that helps you close the lid.

SKS Lock System

Yakima 8007388 CBX Solar Same Key System Locks

The cargo box has SKS locks on each side of the lid. The key cannot be removed from the locks unless the lid is closed and locked. This prevents you from driving with an open or unlocked lid. The locks include SKS lock cores so you can swap them out to make all your Yakima accessories keyed alike.

Quick-Release Mounting System

Yakima 8007388 CBX Solar Quick-Release Clamps

The box can be mounted on your vehicle in less than 5 minutes with the quick-release mounting system. These clamps adjust along tracks in the floor of the box to accommodate different crossbar spreads.

Yakima 8007388 CBX Solar Removable Torque Limiting Knob

To install the box, set it on your roof rack and center the clamps over your crossbars. Then simply use the included torque knob to tighten the clamps around the bars. The knob clicks when the clamps are secure, and can be removed after installation for a flat, unobstructed floor.

Cargo Tie-Down Points

Yakima 8007388 CBX Solar Integrated Tie Down Points

The mounting bracket assemblies on the inside of the box have fixed anchor points for securing your cargo. Just loop straps (sold separately) through the anchor points and pull the straps tight to secure your gear.

Video Transcript for Yakima CBX Solar Rooftop Cargo Box Review - 2020 Subaru Crosstrek

What's going on, everybody Adam here with etrailer. Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the Yakima CBX Solar Rooftop Cargo Box on our 2020 Subaru Crosstrek. If you're on the market for a rooftop cargo box, and you're really wanting a little bit more than what the average boxes give you, well, this is gonna give us a solar panel on top, which is amazing. So if you're out in the middle of nowhere, and you don't have any power, and your stuff is dying, you can go ahead and plug it in on the inside. We have two ports that we'll get to later. And that is amazing for just charging your stuff just off the sun.

Just a note, this isn't going to store power for you. You will have to get a battery bank. But it is going to go down to this box, the power, and we're gonna have two USBs. They do come with one little thru USB, which is just an extension, but they come with one of those. And we're gonna have two different ports.

They're both gonna have a three-amp, five-volt output. But if you have them both together, they are gonna be going down to about 2.1. So that is pretty much what the basic output of any type of charger for your phone and stuff like that. So if you do have full output, meaning we have sun hitting the solar, we're gonna be able to charge two phones regularly just like you're charging them there at home to get it nice and juiced up. The solar panel is a nice addition.

And it's really cool to see something like that on a cargo box just because it's just another added feature that I would definitely use. But I would really want to have a battery bank to charge and just keep it in here all the time, so I definitely suggest doing that. Goal Zero has a good one that I like to use, and we have it here at etrailer, so definitely go ahead and grab that. But more to the box in general, we are gonna have 16 cubic feet of storage. To give you an idea of how much that is, when we're loading this up, I could get a bunch of suitcases for me and a friend for a whole week trip, all of our other bags and stuff, and then some skis and snowboards as well.

So there's plenty of room. But to give you an idea when it comes to measurements, it's gonna be about, about 81 inches long on the inside by about 34 inches from the inside to the inside wide. So we are gonna have some hinges on each side that might, you know, hinder that space a little bit, but for the most part, there's plenty of room on the inside. But the hinges being on both sides, that means we can open it up from either side, which is always a plus. So, obviously, whenever we're pulled over on the side of the road, you don't wanna do it on the driver side, and that's why they made it to work and open up on the passenger side so you're not in the way of traffic moving down. But, again, you do not want to open up on both sides at the same time. It's just whichever one is best for that situation. So I was curious to see if this would hold everything I would really want to bring on a trip. So I have two pieces of luggage, and this is what I usually pack whenever I'm going on like a week trip. And then I have another one, of course. We still have the two dry bags. I got my bag for my GoPros and stuff like that. I have some sleeping stuff there, have another etrailer bag. And I still had more room, so I threw in two other skis just to give you an idea. And it still locks down, unlocks. That's pretty cool. Since it is a really premium rooftop cargo box, it's nice that it comes with locking cords. We don't have to buy 'em separately. It's gonna be on both sides. We're gonna get two keys with our kit and some lanyards, so that's always a plus. And one thing I really like about it is when it is unlocked, like it is right now, the keys aren't gonna be able to come out. So if it's locked, that's the only time you'd be able to get the keys out. So if you have the keys in your hand and your box is like this, you know it's nice and locked into place. And that's always a plus, especially whenever you are traveling. You don't want someone to run off with it. As far as how it interacts with the vehicle, the first thing that I noticed when I put this thing up here is it looks really good. I like how the bottom half of it kinda matches what we got going on here with our rails, but then the top has a really cool carbon fiber look to it. I don't know if it's just because of the blue accents and it goes well with the blue Crosstrek we have here, but it looks really good, and I really don't think it's too big. I think it's the perfect size, and we're really utilizing the whole entire roof of our Crosstrek. One thing to think about is the rear hatch. And we have it to where it's super, super close, maybe nicks it a little bit, but we can move this up a tiny bit. We would just have to move our crossbars. So you might have to kinda mess with it a little bit to figure out exactly what fits perfectly for you. But that's all your preference. Another thing too, these bars are only going to add about two inches, the ones we have right now, and then the box from the top of that bar is only gonna add about 13 inches, so you're not adding a whole lot of height to your vehicle. And with our setup right now, we have plenty of room, about 2 1/2 inches or so until we go and hit this antenna, so that's not an issue either. And I did go ahead and messed with the sunroof a little bit. I went ahead and lifted it up and brought it all the way back, and we didn't have any issues hitting the bottom of our bar or our clamps. To sum it all up, if you're looking for a more premium box, I would definitely recommend this size. I like the 16 cubic feet. It's plenty to get everything out of the inside and up and on top of your roof, and it's gonna make everybody a lot more comfortable in the inside. So 16 cubic feet is really good for the Crosstrek. And if you're really going for a really good look, this one looks amazing, but it has a solar, which I really like just because half the time, my GoPro dies and my phone dies, and I'm out in the creek somewhere, and I don't have any source of power. But, of course, the sun is always shining so you will almost always get some charge out of the box. So I would definitely recommend it to you, especially if you like to explore. First thing you wanna do is make sure you have the proper crossbar spread. Obviously, you're gonna need crossbars. So if you don't have them, get those. We have them here at etrailer. But we wanna make sure from the center of the front to the center of the back, we wanna make sure that it's in between 24 and 36 inches. When you put it up on your roof, you wanna make sure that your clamps are going to be open. And the open part, we wanna make sure that the bars are gonna be in the same direction of where it's opening up, so, as you could see, like this. Then once we get that done, it will be a little bit easier with somebody else, but you can get it done on your own, you basically just slide it in like that. Make sure it's all good. And now it's a good time to take a step back, make some measurements, and make sure it's perfectly centered on your vehicle if that's what you're going for. Now, you can go ahead and grab your keys and unlock it so we can get on the inside and get it secured down. So as of right now, obviously it's locked. Unlock it, now we can pull it down, open her up, and voila, we are ready to go. To get it secured down, we have a tool that's gonna stow away on either side, over here or over there, so it's easy and accessible. And this will just go in the slot there, and we can tighten this up. That's just gonna secure that clamp around the bar. And the nice thing about this knob is it's got a built-in pressure sensor, so it will click three times when we're done. There you go. You do the same exact thing for the remaining three. Now that that's done, we could take our tool and put it away, and then we could start loading up our cargo. Well, everyone, that's just about it for our look at the Yakima CBX Solar Rooftop Cargo Box on our 2020 Subaru Crosstrek..

  • Recommended Roof Cargo Box For A 2019 Audi Q5
    Whether the box is going to fit or not comes down to your crossbar spread. Crossbar spread is the measurement between the center of one crossbar to the other. If your crossbar spread is between 24 inches and 36 inches I HIGHLY recommend getting the Yakima CBX Solar Box # Y76FR. This thing is so cool! I was lucky enough to do the video on it and I really liked the look but of course having a solar panel on top is a very cool unique feature to this box specifically. You can charge your devices...

    The most cost effective way to get gear out of the car and the elements than you should get the Rightline Gear Sport # RL100S30. This will attach to your vehicle in the door jambs and this doe not require crossbars. Zach does a great job explaining the features and showing how to install it.

  • Cargo Box Suggestions For 2002 BMW M5
    Of the two boxes you're looking at, I would get the Thule Force XT # TH6356B because it looks better in my opinion. Comparing it to the Yakima RocketBox # Y07192 it's actually almost an inch taller so the Thule option is not anymore low profile than the Yakima option. It may seem that way but they are 16-3/4" tall and 16" tall respectively. Both will work with your square bars and both are around the same weight but the lighter one is the Thule option. That's what I would go for forsure! If...
