    Clever girl.

    The Raptor is the quick-and-easy bike rack. You don’t have to pull your bike’s front wheel off to mount it, so there’s no need for adapters or a separate component to hold the front wheel. The Raptor is also aerodynamic to reduce wind noise and minimally affect gas mileage, and it’s compatible with just about any crossbar on the market.

    • Aero design
    • Compatible with most crossbar types
    • Center stabilizing bar clamps directly to your downtube
    • Center bar is compatible with downtubes between one and three inches in diameter
    • Compatible with disc brakes or funky thru axles
    • Simple ratchet system secures your bike's wheels to the rack and release quickly
    • Item #YAK0306

    Have questions about this product?

    Kind of disappointed.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    It does the job hold your bike and was easy to put together and install. However first day of use the red handle to the Center stabilizing bar clamps broke internally and kept twisting in circles. I had to apply allot of pressure for the screws to engage and twist to open the clamps. Luckily Yakima like always was awesome and sent me a new piece within a week. But overall this rack just doesn't seem to be up to par with other Yakima products I use. It just seems a little off and kind of cheap, I think its the center stabilizing clamp that sketches me out . I ended up ordering a Thule Big Mouth bike mount that also uses a center stabilizing clamp arm that seems allot more durable and strong as well as easy open and close.

    Meh...does the job sorta

    This is a great, inexpensive option if you don't want to take your front wheel off. That being said, from what I've seen, most factory racks are slightly curved. As such, once you mount this and stick a bike on it, the bike leans away from the center of the vehicle. This won't happen if you have Thule or Yakima cross bars. Additionally, the front wheel wobbles significantly at freeway speeds, as well as the frame to some degree. There is less wobble with a mountain bike than a road bike. For the price though and durability, I would go with something a little more stable.

    Is this rack okay to use with a carbon frame bike (i.e. will not damage the frame)?
