Yakima JetStream

The quiet and aerodynamic Yakima JetStream crossbars let you build a custom roof rack for your vehicle. The crossbars require 4 Yakima BaseLine, RidgeLine, SkyLine, or TimberLine towers and a custom fit kit (sold separately) to mount the rack to your roof. Each bar extends past the towers to maximize space for mounting carriers and accessories. SmartFill strips push down for easy loading in the T-slots so there's no need to trim them. The bars are constructed of aluminum so they're durable and won't rust.

Aerodynamic JetFlow Design

JetStream Aerodynamic Design

The JetStream's asymmetrical JetFlow shape and built-in WindRidge helps to control air flow over and under the bar. This dramatically reduces wind noise and vibration - even at highway speeds - and eliminates the need to add a fairing to your roof rack. The aero-style bar also reduces drag to help maintain fuel efficiency.

Strong, Durable Construction

JetStream JetTruss Extrusion

The JetStream crossbars are made of anodized aluminum with internal JetTruss extrusions. These extrusions strengthen the bars without significantly increasing their weight. Additionally, because the bars are aluminum and have a black powder coat finish, they won't rust or corrode so you can leave them on your roof year-round.

Hassle-Free Installation

JetStream Bottom Channel

Each JetStream crossbar has a bottom channel that allows you to mount it to any of the Yakima StreamLine towers - BaseLine, RidgeLine, SkyLine, or TimberLine. The rubber strip in the channel can be cut down to the exact size needed for installation and then re-installed in the channel. This helps keep dirt out of the bar and reduces wind noise.

JetStream Etched Measurements

Etched measurements along the bottom channel help you center the bar on your roof. Simply use the ruler on each end of the bar to ensure the towers are spaced properly in the channel.

JetStream Installation Bracket

Once you have the correct measurements, install the brackets in the bottom channel, set the bar on top of your towers, and tighten it in place with the torque tool (included with your towers).

Channel-Mounted and Clamp-On Accessories

JetStream SmartFill Rubber Strips

JetStream crossbars have built-in top channels that allow you to carry channel-mounted accessories on your roof. Simply push down on the rubber SmartFill strips and slide your gear into the channel - no need to remove or cut the strip.

JetStream Clamp-On Accessories

You can also attach most universal, clamp-on accessories and carriers to the bars.

Maximum Cargo Carrying Capacity

Full Length JetStream Crossbars

The JetStream is a full-length crossbar that extends past your Yakima towers. The increased length gives you more space to mount accessories and carriers to your roof rack.

Video Transcript for Yakima Roof Rack Installation - 2020 Hyundai Palisade

Evangeline: Hi, it's Evangeline from, and today we are looking at this Yakima Roof-Rack with JetStream Crossbars and RidgeLine Towers on our 2020 Hyundai Palisade.So, this is a nice roof-rack because our Palisade has these flush mounted side rails, so our RidgeLine Towers really clamp onto there and create this nice roof rack.We have 50-inch bars on our Palisade and the overhang between the end of the towers and the end of the bars is 3 inches, something you might want to keep in mind if you need larger space, you'd get larger bars, and let's inaudible 00:00:39 see exactly how we installed it.What might help while you're installing this is I use the Moki Door Step, which since the Palisade is a little bit tall, it helps reach up there, so you can work around here. This JetStream bars come in black as well as this aluminum silver color, so you can choose which best fits your vehicle. And, these lock cores can be used with your Same Key System Yakima Lock Core, so these can switch out so you can match them with all your other Yakima accessories.I already installed one bar on there, so we get to install this other bar together. The first thing I do is to loosen all the bolts around the tower. Of course, make sure to take the cap off first. And with those bolts loosened on the inside as well, you can then put these parts in.

So these fit our arrow bars, and first you need to snap this part into place. So put that in there, and remember, you have to hear that click to know that it's in there. With that in place, we can then put this plate in and tighten it down underneath. With this tightened down, you can see how it's firmly attached to our tower, and we're then ready to put it onto our bar.On your bar, you're going to need to take out the rubber strip underneath. Make sure it's underneath where you see the measurements, and this will have to be cut to size later.

Then you can put your tower in. So if it's too. there we go. If it's too tight, you may need to loosen it. Now put your tower through the slot in the bar.With both towers in place, these have to be equidistant from each other, and you might need to put it on your roof first to figure out the best spot.

For our 2020 Hyundai Palisade, we found that putting them at 38 was the sweet spot.When the towers are right at the length you need them to be, you can then tighten them down here at the top. There we go. Pretty good. Do the same for the other side.Now put the pads on the towers. Make sure the arrow is pointing out and the flat side is facing the inside.

So these just snap on like that. With the pads on the towers, you can then put your fit clips on, and we have two sizes, R15 and R7. R7 goes on the outside. See how there's only one bracket there. So make sure this is loosened enough so you can fit it through the bar and over the bracket. Just hold that in place before you tighten it down. Do the same on the other side, where it's through the bar, then down, and hooks around the two hooks underneath.If this is a struggle for you, you can also put the fit clips on while they're up on the vehicle so that gravity is holding them down. What I like to do is put them on right here and just tighten them down a little bit so that they're gripped in place before I pop them on the vehicle.With your towers installed, I recommend getting a set of hands to help you out with the bar. So, I'll hand it up over here and just put it into place.When you're confident and you've tested that the towers are at the right distance away from each other, you can then cut the rubber strip underneath and make sure it fits right inside. And we'll just cut the ends as well to size and make sure it fits around the end caps of your arrow bar.So you have to make sure that your bars are at the right position on your car. So the front one is measured at 19 inches away from the front. And the second bar needs to be at least 27 inches away. So I've already got this measured, but as you can see, it's from the middle to the middle 27 inches exactly. Make sure it's the same length on the other side, then you're ready to tighten it down.Here, I like to double-check that this part is tightened down because that's what holds the top bar into place, so make sure that it's tight. And, now you have to tighten in your fit clips. So get that in there, and you may need to position the clips a little bit in place, especially behind your tower as you tighten it in.When you're tightening them down, make sure you hear a click, one and there you go. So if you don't hear that click, keep tightening down. With this tightened down, you can then pop the lids or the cap right into place. So, just get that in position, and it snaps into place.Final thoughts about this roof-rack is I like how easy it was to install. The instructions were. they're okay if you follow along with the video, you will see how exactly all the pieces work together. Just put this part, put that part, tighten them down, and you're good to go. It looks really good on our Palisade. I like how sleek it looks and how low-profile it is as well. So that's really nice, especially with the JetStream Bars. I'm a fan of how aerodynamic they are, reduce wind noise and drag, so that's awesome.So that was a look at the Yakima Roof-Rack with JetStream Bars and RidgeLine Towers here on our 2020 Hyundai Palisade.

Because of the 'rona-induced supply chain interruptions, I was unable to purchase all of my Yakima components from etrailer, but I did get these, and they are typically excellent Yakima components. Well-made, easy to install, good directions, no problems.

A year in, still perfectly happy with this system.
Phillip R - 09/30/2022


The 50” jetstream cross bars were perfect for my 2019 Ford Ranger with my ARE cap. They are paired with the Yakima Skyline towers and appropriate landing pads (protip: call etrailer when you order to ensure you have the correct setup;)

These cross bars are SILENT on my cap. Zero wind noise. My daughter and I installed them on a Friday (I do recommend watching etrailer’s installation video in addition to the paper instructions) and left for a 700 mile weekend road trip the next day to pick up a kayak, paddle with friends downstate then drop her off at summer camp.

Even with empty Yakima Jaylows on top, no wind noise. Even with a boat in the Jaylows, no wind noise.

These are the sweetest rack’s I’ve had. With the Skyline towers and landing pads, they are also easy to take off and put on. Click click done.

They look good, too;)

etrailer customer service for the win, too. When I originally ordered, I did not order all the items I needed for installation. When I realized this, I called and they got me squared away.


The crossbars are light and very strong. They fit perfectly and installed easily.


Great product - very good quality. I liked the fact that I could keep the risers mounted on my car, but could remove the cross bars. It took me awhile to install - but I'm not very mechanically inclined.

2019 Subaru Forester

I’m using these towers in conjunction with the JetStream cross bars. Assembly and setup was easy, all the tools you need are provided, except perhaps a tape measure for mounting. Looks and feels solid and well made. This is my second set of Yakima towers and cross bars. I plan to use this setup for an old roof top hard shell case and for my mountain bike to get to the trail head.

After completing the installation I took it out for a spin to check for wind noise at highway speeds. No discernible noise, I’m very happy about that as I really don’t want to remove these when not needed. For reference these are mounted on a 2019 Subaru Forester Touring with factory raised rails. Plenty of clearance for attaching equipment and gear.

Side note: the gentleman that assisted me on the phone while ordering was very pleasant and helpful, got me the right products very quickly as I was in a time crunch. Two thumbs up!

2011 Honda Fit

etrailer installation videos were very helpful in selecting the product and first installation, although in practice, minor adjustments to method were required. Now after more than a dozen set ups, mounting the crossbars takes 15 minutes, and taking them off, 10. The system is well made, and when mounted, precise, strong, and reliable. Expensive perhaps compared to alternatives, but well worth the money. Used to carry a 50# sailboard 40 miles to the beach on weekends. ('11 Honda Fit)
One minor shortcoming: rubber sheet glued to base clips where they touch the car body have torn and moved sideways 1/16", but expect will be easily replaced with readily available 1/16" sheet rubber (e.g., shower pan liner) when the time comes.
Used in rain at least once, (sustained 60mph), with no leaks.

Top of the line!!!


I have a Buick Envision and it seemed as if it would be difficult to get the correct rack, but it turned out to be easy. I entered my vehicle info and was directed to the Yakima Skyline with flush rails. It was easy to install and they look great. I will be able to take my canoe out with no problem! Joe

2018 Honda Ridgeline

I needed crossbars for my new 2018 Mazda CX5, which came with flush side rails. The Yakima crossbars, along with the RidgeLine Towers and the the vehicle specific kit worked great. The installation (10-15 min) is super easy. They look cool, and performed great (I strapped 160-lbs rooftop tent on them!). Removing them is also super easy (10 min tops). Highly recommend.


I chose the Yakima roof rack, because It spanned 50 inches, rather than the leading competitor's 47 inches, making it better for tying down 4 ft x 8 ft sheets of building material. It also seemed to be about half the price. It took me about 2 hours to put it all together and mount it on my car. The instructions were all visual and there was one little pic I didn't understand, but the equipment seemed to go together correctly anyway. Now that it's adjusted, it should be fairly easy to remove and replace next time. I did need to put on super tacky gloves to get the covers off. Although it seemed unnecessarily complicated, I would still choose this product again.

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Easy to install. No noticeable noise from the bars. Seem to be very sturdy.


I purchased the Baseline towers with base clip fit kit and jetstream crossbars. They were great quality and the instruction materials included for assembly and installation were great. I was able to assemble and install on my Lexus CT 200 in about an hour. It looks nice too!


Excellent service!! I needed new crossbars as I purchased a new vehicle and l needed them in a hurry and I did receive them thank you.

2016 Honda Accord

Awesome experience and product! It shipped fast and was easy to install using the directions and a recommended video. Plus, it looks super hot attached to my white Honda Accord Coupe 2016. (I leave it on all year round.) Love it and etrailer!!

2016 Toyota 4Runner

Great fit, fairly easy instructions, I prefer printed instructions along with the pictures. All in all I recommend this product .


Had the parts I needed when I couldn’t find them anywhere else and they were delivered on time.


As said in my other review these etrailer guys helped me where the Yakima customer service and sales people couldn't.


Yakima Jetstream cross bars.. nice bars worth the extra money. can be adjusted for pitch/angle of attack to "tune" the air profile.. mine have absolutely no high speed wind noise or whistling.. rubber weather strip underneath further smoothes the bar profile.. quietest roof rack system I have ever owned..

  • Solution for Needing to Mount Thule ProRide XT Bike Rack on Yakima Corebars
    If the clamp brackets of the Thule Pro Ride XT part # TH598004 will not fit around your Core bars you'd have to replace them with Jetstream bars like the part # Y00425 for black or # Y00428 for silver. Thule does not offer any adapter solutions for this bike rack. Yes it is okay to lubricate the arm of the rack as well.

  • Do You Carry a Thule/Yakima Roof Rack that Locks for a 2020 Ford Escape with Flush Rails?
    Yes, all of the Yakima and Thule complete roof rack systems we carry for your 2020 Ford Escape have the ability to add additional locks. The inclusion of the description "non-locking" can be misleading in this case. Since the lock systems are optional add-ons for the roof racks, we included the "non-locking" description because it does not come included in the system. If you need a Yakima roof rack system that locks for your flush rails on your 2020 Ford Escape, I recommend the following:...
