Description

Yakima's King Joe 2 Bike Rack is a clairvoyant leader that carries your bikes to their new empire without a hitch.

Of all Yakima's strap-mount racks, the King Joes fit more vehicle trunks than any other, and the King Joe 2 is one of the sturdiest. This rear-mount rack rules his bicycle subjects with a six-strap system. Not only does King Joe 2 fit a vast array of trunks (including those with spoilers), he carries a wide variety of bikes. The Quick Trigger Hub System makes installing this two-bike rack a snap. Strap in a pair of bikes and you're good to go. King Joe 2's padded feet protect your car's paint, and his narrow folding arms make him easy to retire to his royal chamber. *If you're not sure the King Joe 2 will fit your car or bike, feel free to call one of our knowledgeable gearheads.

I just purchased a king joe pro 2 for my 2014 Jeep Cherokee. The store said the Yakima book said it would fit and suggested I get an extra pair of Glass hatch hooks. After seeing a video on installation, I'm confused because of the spoiler above the back window. How would I attach this thing?

Will this fit a Mini Cooper? The bike-mount hooks on the top of my current bike rack are too wide for the Mini and require modification - foam pads on the inside.

Trunk Rack

After using a trunk rack for several months I started to see a good amount of trunk damage even though I was very careful in removal/installation. If you're going to be driving any kind of long distance then I'd reccommend a roof or a hitch system. They're more expensive, but will do less damage to your car and bikes

Good Bike Rack

We bought this bike rack because we own a Volkswagen New Beetle and we needed a rack that could be used with a hatchback that has glass at the top of the hatch. The glass clips worked perfectly. The rack is stable and, as long as the rubber ties are very tight, the bikes are secure.

King Joe 2 vs. Mazda Protege 05

After a frustrating hour or two with the assembly "instructions", a decision was made in favor of the Mazda and King Joe was in the trash bin. After the ref came to her senses, she retrieved King Joe from the trash, trashed the instructions instead, and let King Joe have another go at the Mazda. A few adaptations to the instructions, a calmer demeanor and, voila, the ref ruled in favor of King Joe, and King Joe was on the Mazda. However, the bike, being "female" couldn't be mounted on old King Joe. One trip to the bike store to purchase the boy-bar to change the sex of the bike, and voila, the bike now sits proudly on King Joe. However, King Joe has yet to be proven road worthy. Hopefully, it won't all fall apart when put to the test at 75 mph.

I hadn't heard about the need for a boy-bar to transport a female bike. I hope old King Joe passed the 75 mph test. Thanks for the tip!

What a great Bike Rack!

I was planning to ship a bike, but when I found out how expensive it was I decided to look into a portable rack for my BMW. The King Joe 2 exceeded my expectations. It carries bikes safely without damaging the car or the bike. The price was excellent for the quality. Shipping was prompt. I also appreciated the ease with which I was able to match up a rack to my particular vehicle. I would rate this site as an exceptional company to do business with. Thanks again.
