Yakima RailBar

This premium rack mounts between your raised, factory side rails for a from-the-factory look. While most other aftermarket racks mount on top of the side rails with the bars positioned above the mount - creating a high profile - the Yakima RailBar system positions the bars between the side rails for an ultra-low profile.


Aerodynamic Airfoil Design

Yakima RailBar airfoil shape

Designed with the aerodynamic shape of an owl wing in mind, the RailBar produces less drag - and therefore less noise - than any other roof-rack style on the market. But don't let the elegant appearance and clean lines fool you - this roof rack is also sturdy and hard working so you can carry loads of gear. This means your vehicle will still look great inside and out.


Yakima RailBar airflow diagram

The RailBar features sleek, airfoil-style crossbars that are shaped like tapered wings. These lightweight aluminum bars have been shown to reduce drag by up to 70 percent when compared with round and square bars. They do this by putting the air back together quickly after it passes over and under the crossbars. This practically eliminates the buzzing and humming associated with standard roof racks - no fairing required. Because these bars produce less drag, the gas mileage of your vehicle will be far less affected than it is with other roof racks. And because they're constructed of corrosion-resistant, lightweight aluminum, you never have to worry about them rusting or affecting the load-carrying capacity of your roof.


Built-in Channels with Push-Down Access

Yakima RailBar built-in channel with rubber strip

The built-in channels include a soft rubber strips that can be pushed down into the channels when you mount accessories, so you don't have to cut or trim them as you would with other slotted crossbars. And this means you'll likely never have to buy replacement strips.


Hassle-Free Installation

Yakima RailBar adjustment screw tightened

All you need for installation is the included hex wrenches, which store inside the towers. To mount the rack, simply remove the covers from the towers, slide the crossbars in and out of the towers as needed until they are centered on your roof, and then tighten the adjustment screws with the hex keys. Replace the leg covers and the rack is ready to roll.


Yakima RailBar pivoting leg

The mounting clamps - or towers - of the crossbars are constructed of glass-filled plastic that is strong, rigid, and UV and impact resistant. These clamps pivot slightly to accommodate the taper of your roof. Each clamp is also lined with soft rubber pads to prevent scratches and abrasions on your side rails.


Same Key System Locks

SKS Lock Cores

The crossbars are compatible with Yakima SKS lock cores (Y07204 - sold separately) that allow you to secure the rack to your factory side rails. These locks can help prevent theft of the crossbars by ensuring that they cannot be detached from your vehicle. And the locks keep your channel-mounted carriers and accessories safe by denying would-be thieves access to the built-in top slots. The SKS locks are all keyed alike so a single key opens all the locks. The locks can also be swapped out to make all of your Yakima products keyed alike.

Video Transcript for Yakima Roof Rack - Crossbars - Y00448-0449 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Yakima RailBar crossbars. The ultra-quiet factory-style bars let you mount carriers and accessories on the roof of your vehicle. One of the neat features about the unit is that there's no elevated profile, so these bars are designed to position between your factory side rails and not on top of them. They're very aerodynamic. They're sleek, highly functional, and extremely quiet. They feature a built-in wind diffuser, as well as a tapered wing-shaped design.

Those components combined dramatically reduce wind noise and vibration as you travel.These crossbars will accommodate accessories that either mount in the built-in channel or that clamp or strap around the bar. To use the built-in channel, all you have to do is remove an end cap, push down on the rubber strip, and slide in your channel-mount accessories to where you need them, and then tighten them down. There's no trimming or cutting of the rubber strip required.Pretty simple installation. The unit's going to feature glass-filled plastic towers with rubber gaskets that easily attach to the side rails. The rubber gaskets do a great job at forming around the raised side rails for a really great fit.

Then it features a steel clamp at each tower. Now this has a protective coating which is going to keep them from damaging your vehicle's raised side rails. No additional equipment required. It does come with the appropriate Allen tool located right here inside the tower. That's going to allow you to tighten things down.

When you're ready to install it, you will need to get that tool out of there.Then this is going to operate a single bolt located right there. You can loosen that up. As you loosen it, it's going to allow this clamp to open up. Then you can fit it around your raised side rail. Then when you're ready to tighten things down, you use the same tool to tighten that bolt.

That's going to close the clamp for a really nice, secure fit. The end cap simply slides back onto the tower here.It's a really neat thing that that tool stays inside the tower. That way it's always there when you need it and it's out of the way when you don't.The unit is compatible with same-key system locks. That allows you to secure the rack to your roof. You will notice that at each tower there's this plastic lock core. You can use a flat-blade screwdriver to move that to the locked or unlocked position. Those plastic pieces can be replaced with SKS locks. Again, they are sold separately and available at etrailer.com if you're interested in those.The bars are made from an aluminum construction so they're very lightweight and corrosion-resistant. They feature a black powder-coated finish that's both durable and really nice-looking. The bars, this system's going to contain two crossbars. They feature a weight capacity of 165 pounds. When it comes to the measurements, front to back it measures about 3-5/16" wide, that's just the bar, and about 1" thick. They're a nice, low-profile design. They're covered with a limited lifetime warranty. These bars are available in a variety of lengths and combinations. To see all the options available you can check out those at etrailer.com.I do want to point out that each tower is able to slide in and out a few inches, which is going to allow a great fit for your vehicle. That's going to do it for today's look at the Yakima RailBar crossbars.

Purchased the Yakima low profile roof rack crossbars for the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek. etrailer made the purchase easy and it was delivered quickly. The packaging was nice and the fit on the car was perfect. 611156

2017 Toyota RAV4

Incredible set of bars at an even lower price than currently advertised (probably because I was an early adapter and immediately jumped on this new design as one of the first to purchase). Super-easy to install on my 2017 RAV4 and these bad boys look as sleek as they are rock solid. Only gripe is the plastic core plugs won't fit as tight once you remove them during installation which could be by design so you have to shell out another $60 for the locking SKS system from Yakima. Kind of sad if you think about it but won't let that detract from my well-deserved 5-star rating. etrailer customer support was top notch. If you buy these bars you will not be disappointed. 505419

Yakima, as always, makes good gear. I've been using their roof racks since they got started about 40 years ago, I think. But the most outstnding part of this was the excellent customer service from ETrailer. There was a delay getting the racks from Yakima, and Lori kept me informed with emails and phone calls, Nice to do business with you. Thank you. 606508

Review from a similar Yakima RailBar in Roof Rack


I searched for crossbars for my 2018 Jeep Cherokee. etrailer had exactly what I was looking for and it was in stock. Once I placed the order the Customer Service Team kicked into high gear. Called to makes sure the address was correct and there were no problems with accepting UPS. Once they got their answers , they shipped. It went out that day and I received it on time. Super easy to install. I would recommend buying from etrailer whenever you have a chance. 527567

Review from a similar Yakima RailBar in Roof Rack


Yakima produces great products as always... This went on my 2012 Acura TSX Wagin with factory rails. Install was straightforward and easy. eTrailer had the best price on these bars I could find anywhere, but didn't have them in stock so I had to wait almost 3 weeks for delivery once they received them from Yakima, but shipping was 2 days! Now I can mount my Yakima Skybox 16 on the car and double my cargo space, but still have room for all 4 passengers. 564662

Review from a similar Yakima RailBar in Roof Rack


Exactly what I was looking for. These cross rails are low profile and cause little to no wind noise even at highway speeds. And they look great on my 2018 Chevy Traverse. The seller knew the correct lengths of each rail to send for the front and back rails. The customer service was superb, and I did need their help. One of the rails had a defect that didn't allow a lock to be installed. A replacement was quickly received. But the replacement was too short and was the wrong one. Another was quickly received and I installed it on my car. It was easy to return the other rails in the boxes that the replacements came in. Mistakes happen and the true test of customer service is the responsiveness that is given to the problem. Both incidents with the rails were quickly resolved and followup emails were received to verify the corrections. I would definitely order again from seller and highly recommend doing business with them. 480389

The sleek integrated brackets and overall low profile really make these cross bars stand out from the crowd. They simply look fantastic on my Tiguan. Much more appealing than the factory accessory option. I greatly appreciated how etrailer created a kit specifically for my vehicle making the selection a breeze. And kudos to etrailer for offering to expedite my order when one of the parts was not in stock thus missing the initial delivery date estimate. This was my first purchase from them and they really delivered. Great customer service. 492065

Review from a similar Yakima RailBar in Roof Rack


5 star - even though initially out of stock, from supplier, the Yakima roof rack rail bars arrived in a reasonable time frame. They were very simple to install on my 2019 Chevy Traverse, and I’m very pleased with the way their low profile design, mates to the factory side rails. They are just high enough for the load to clear the rear factory satellite antennae fin. These are much better looking than the high standoff Chevy rails, and provide a wider separation than the Chevy rails would have provided. 612028

My wife just called me and said she has received it. She called me before I saw your email. I have bought a couple of things from etrailer and must say the customer service is exceptional. Even a phone call to ask a question before a purchase everyone is polite and courteous. I own a business with 47 employees so I know how hard customer service can be at times. Keep up the great job 590787

I love Yakima products. These RailBars are simple and very sturdy. Shipping was fast and hassle free. The bars were installed less than ten minutes after I got the package. I cant wait to add Yakima accessories for my kayak, skis, and road bike. 583098

  • If you have the factory roof rack on your 2017 Subaru Crosstrek the SUPDawg paddleboard carrier, part # Y04075, is confirmed to fit. If you don't have the factory crossbars on your Subaru you can add a complete roof rack and still use the SUPDawg. I recommend the Yakima RailBar, part # Y00448-0449. It's a great looking, factory-like roof rack. Check out the video I linked of it on a 2014 Crosstrek. The SUPDawg includes Yakima SKS lock cores already. The RailBar doesn't include...

This is a great option nonetheless as it will not add any length to your vehicle like a hitch bike rack would and you would be able to carry a bike that weighs more than 35 lbs unlike a trunk mounted bike rack. The best feature however that the other two types of bike carriers do not offer is that you can use the roof rack for many other things such...

What you will need to do is swap out your whole roof rack system. If you have the factory rails that run front to back then you can easily do this with part # Y00448-0449 for Black or part # Y00433-0434 for Silver.
