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 HalfBack 2 Bike Rack

The Yakima HalfBack lets you carry up to 2 bicycles on your vehicle's trunk or hatch. The rack has adjustable arms that provide safe, level transport of your bikes. The arms feature SuperCush anti-sway cradles with ratcheting ZipStrip straps for easy bike loading and unloading. It installs with 4 cam-buckle straps and an interlocking HUB with vehicle-specific settings. And the rack folds flat for compact storage in your trunk or garage.


SuperCush Anti-Sway Cradles with Ratcheting ZipStrip Straps

SuperCush Anti-Sway Cradles

The rack has premium SuperCush anti-sway cradles that help to prevent bike-to-bike contact during transport. And the integrated TPE padding absorbs road shock and vibration to protect your bike frames.


Ratcheting ZipStrip Staps

The cradles also include ratcheting ZipStrip straps that make loading and unloading your bikes a breeze. 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.


Folding Dual Arms

HalfBack Dual Folding Arms

The HalfBack's dual arms provide excellent stability for your bikes. Integrated dials on each side of the rack let you adjust the arms to ensure your bikes are level during transport and to help improve ground clearance.


HalfBack Folded Dual Arms

These dials also allow you to quickly fold the arms down when you're not carrying any bikes. This is great for parking in places where space is limited such as a parking garage. And it enables you to store the rack compactly in your trunk or garage.


4-Strap Installation with Interlocking HUB

HalfBack Interlocking HUB

The HalfBack installs quickly and easily on your trunk or hatch with an interlocking HUB and 4 cam-buckle straps. The interlocking HUB includes a dial with vehicle-specific installation settings.  Simply turn the dial to the number specified for your vehicle and place the rack on your trunk or hatch. Information on obtaining your specific setting can be found in the rack's installation instructions.


HalfBack Strap Hooks

Four strap hooks attach the rack to your trunk. The hooks are labeled to make setup a breeze and to ensure the rack is properly anchored. Additionally, the hooks are designed to work with glass hatches without adapters.


HalfBack Cam-Buckle Strap

To secure the rack, simply attach the 4 hooks and pull the straps tight through the integrated cam buckles.


HalfBack Excess Strap Retrainer

Rubber retainers are included so you can bundle excess strap length to keep it from flapping against your trunk.


Integrated Bottle Openers

Integrated Bottle Openers

An integrated bottle opener on the end of each arm allows you to enjoy a cold one after a long ride.

Super well built. The quality and thought behind the strapping bike ties and overall look and fit is exceptional. This goes on my BMW X5 perfectly. If there is a challenge it is the weight. This is VERY heavy and a bit of a bear to get up on my roof for mounting. That being said I’d buy it over and over again. A super solid quality rack.

The Yakima bike rack is well designed and well built. I am glad I was able to get the model confirmed it would be compatible with my Ford Escape. There was a shipping delay, but I am sure the Virus pandemic was the cause. Etrailer sent update messages every week.

2005 Hyundai Elantra

I have been searching for a bike carrier to fit my 2005 Hyundai Elantra 5-door hatchback for a few years. I finally discovered the SuperJoe Pro 2 bike carrier with the glass hatch adapters and couldn't be happier! The SuperJoe Pro 2 is easy to setup and secure, and once it is installed and tightened it is extremely stable. No wiggling or swaying at all. The hooks are all labeled (side, bottom, top, etc) so there isn't any frustrating guesswork, the glass hatch adapters are easy to install and very stable. I love having the extra straps to secure the wheels and keep them from spinning. I would recommend this to anyone with a hard-to-fit vehicle like a hatchback.

The Yakima SuperJoe Pro 2 is confirmed as a fit for your 2001 Camry, and fits within your budget. Please also keep in mind that if you are carrying bikes that do not have a traditional horizontal cross tube you may need an adapter bar like the Yakima Tube Top Adapter # Y02531

The bike rack is very sturdy ! Very well built , high quality materials too ! Very easy to install on my 2021 Acura RDX. Great instructions but I only need pictures since I'm rather savvy at installing & putting things together.Liked the photos showing what the bike looked like on a Acura RDX. Simply put, it was a breeze to install. Looks really good & bike fits perfect. A happy customer!!

Great rack that fit my little Prius C. After about 100 miles of highway speeds, I'm convinced this Yakima rack is a solid way to transport my mountain bike. A bit heavy, but easy to put on and take off. Watch the installation video! I like the "zip strips" that secure your bike to the rack. No rocking or swaying. I picked up the security cable too. Works well. Etrailer ordering, customer service, packaging and speed of delivery was outstanding! Forget other sites.

Very nice design, I use it on a SUV and a sedan and it fits fine. The reason I do not give it 5 stars is that I think the locking U straps should be slightly longer and give you a more solid feell in my opinion. Sometimes they tend to slip one notch.

2006 Scion tC

Product works great and fits my 2006 Scion TC with no problems. Have had product for about a year and has held up well. I just leave it installed (installation may take an hour or less for first timers) on my car and it has held up despite the weather. I live in Atlanta so it's not terribly cold even in the winter, but we get a lot of rain generally speaking. Haven't seen any rust and the straps are a rubber like material that feels like tire rubber. It is very strong and doesn't wear out like normal plastic that tends to harden or fall apart over time or with extreme temperatures.. This rack looks very nice and is very solid. The biker bar (sold separately) works well too and have had no problems with either. I used it to tote my son's toddler bike since it was too small to fit on the rack. It would be nice if the biker bar spun on an axis rather than just extend, but it gets the job done. Very impressed overall!

I like the product; it is sturdy, easy to attach to the car and looks nice. It was delivered in a timely manner. I wasn't aware that I needed a crossbar for my mtn bike in order for it to fit the rack though. I purchased a crossbar at REI today. As my body is getting older, it will be much easier to not have to lift my bike to the top of my car anymore. Thank you for the good service.

2017 Toyota RAV4

I'm still not happy with the Yakima bike rack I bought a year ago. Not only it is super bulky and heavy, I believe the information on compatibility with RAV4 has been misrepresented. There is no way to attach the bottom straps to the vehicle. It is basically hanging on the top straps, which may not be very safe when the car is in motion. Also, I have a hard time to move the handles for a bike up and down. Well-made product but unfortunately it is not very user-friendly and, therefore, in my opinion, it's overpriced. Because of its weight, I'm not using my bike that often because I need to transport it to the trail. I wish I simply bought a separate standing hitch rack.

2005 Subaru Outback Wagon

I really like this bike rack! 4 instead of 5 stars because the plastic feels a little cheap, but overall this rack is GREAT. Fits my 2005 Outback perfectly, lots of safety straps, and has straps for the bike down-tubes as well which keeps them from swinging back and forth. I don't think I could've gotten a better deal! I only wish there was an extra set of straps to go sideways so the rack doesn't sway when I go around corners.

Nice rack, but I couldn't handle it's weight on my car, so I gave it away to a friend. Aluminum would be better, or carbon fiber.

I purchased my Yakima HalfBack about a year ago. This bike rack was easy to hook up to my RAV 4 and just as easy to secure my bikes to. I use my bike rack often to transport my bike to different trails around New Hampshire. I highly recommend the Yakima HalfBack and purchasing through etrailer.

Yes. Mazda CX3. Have had for one year. Works very good. Fits very good. Feel worry free safety with bike on rack. Material tubular seems more heavy than needs to be. Concerned about potential auto body pressure point damage both where rollers and strap hooks mount. Auto sheet metal is very thin these days. Am appreciative of asking for a ONE YEAR AFTER review.

  • How To Lock a Yakima HalfBack 2 Bike Rack
    In order to lock your bikes to the Yakima HalfBack 2 Bike Rack part # Y02636 you will need the Yakima Same Key System Cable part # Y07233 along with the Yakima Same Key System part # Y07202 (Only One Core Will Be Used). Then, in order to secure the Yakima HalfBack to the vehicle you will need the Security Strap for Yakima Trunk Mounted Bike Carrier part # Y02623. If the Yakima Cable Lock is too much then you could use the Deadbolt 10' Long Cable Lock part # e98891 instead.

    The Yakima HalfBack # Y02636 and FullBack # Y02634 trunk mount racks are actually the best options for your 2015 Audi Q5. The only difference between these 2 racks (besides one being gray and one being black) is that the FullBack comes with bike and rack locks while the HalfBack doesn't.

  • Recommended Method for Transporting 3-Bikes on 2009 Honda CR-V
    The Yakima HalfBack 2 Bike Rack # Y02636 is a 2-bike rack; the 3-bike version is part # Y02635. What limits this 3-bike carrier to only 2 bikes when used on your particular vehicle is the limited weight-carrying capacity of the hatch. Some people still prefer to use a 3-bike rack for only 2 bikes since this provides for more room between bikes and, depending on their type and size, easier loading.
