Review of the Yakima Roof Bike Racks on a 2006 Honda CR-V


Today on our 2006 Honda CRV, we're going to be test-fitting the Yakima HighSpeed rooftop bike rack, part number Y02115. We already have a bike installed on the rack, let's take a closer look and show off some of the features. How this bike is attached to the rack, we're going to have two points of contact with no frame contact at all. Instead we'll have a rear wheel strap which is adjustable to accommodate bikes of different sizes, then up at the front, we'll have this connector bar with forks with the skewer mount here. This can be removed and you can use this with through axles from 12, 15 or 20 millimeter or the Boost 110 axle as well. With everything installed as it is, we're not going to have any issues of clearance between our rear glass hatch and the bike rack, as you can see here. At the rear we do have an integrated cable lock as well as a lock in our rear connection point.

You will have to purchase SKS lock cores separately to keep these lock aboard the same key. Let's go ahead and take the bike off and set it aside. We'll start with the rear strap, we'll push up at the top there, that will release the strap. Then moving on to our front skewer, holding on to the bike as you do this cause you don't want it falling into the vehicle, we go to this lever, open it up and now we can grip our bike. How this attaches to the roof rack, we have these rubber-coated steel straps at the front and the rear and these latches that'll connect it up at the top, with these gray wheels that'll tighten it to wherever you need it for your particular roof rack system and you just push it down and push that into place and lock it if you need to. And there you have it for the Yakima HighSpeed rooftop bike rack on our 2006 Honda CRV.Speaker 2: Here on our test course, we'll start by going through the through the slalom, this will show us the side to side action. This simulates turning corners or evasively maneuvering. Once we get to the full speed bumps, we'll see the up and down action.

This will be just like driving in and out of a parking, lot, parking garage, or driveway. Once we get to the alternating speed bumps, we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or pothole or driving over uneven pavement.
