Comparing Yakima DoubleDown and Ridgeback Bike Racks


It seems one difference between the Yakima Doubledown and the Yamima Ridgeback is that the Ridgeback comes with a hitch lock. Can you tell me of any other differences and if I can purchase a hitchlock for the Doubledown?


Expert Reply:

The biggest functional difference between the Yakima DoubleDown # Y02424 and the Ridgeback # Y02458 is that the Ridgeback does come with locks. Beyond that the differences are a bit more subtle. The Ridgeback has the upgraded frame cradles that are cushioned more and use zip straps instead of the sometimes difficult to stretch rubber straps.

Aside from that there's a few styling changes and a newer lever system for the rack but that's really it.
