    SkyLine Tower System

    One of the most user-friendly rack towers on the market, the Yakima SkyLine Tower System mounts to a wide variety of vehicles with the use of Yakima's Landing Pads. These Landing Pads (sold separately) are available in 15 different sizes, attaching to your vehicle's fixed mounting points, track systems, existing factory racks, or metal surfaces. This tower system accommodates up to 165-pounds, easily supporting your bikes, kayaks, skis/snowboards, and extra gear.

    The SkyLine Tower System works with Yakima's JetStream, CoreBar, and RoundBar (with adapter) crossbars, delivering a robust platform for carrying all your gear and equipment. Adjusting to fit even curved or sloping rooftops, the SkyLine's BarBed sports 12-degrees of pitch adjustment for a level mounting platform. It comes with either a four or two-pack of SkyLine towers, one torque tool for installation, and one parts bag.

    Sturdy and solid

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Once I got the landing pads installed tower mounted right up. Paired up with the black jet stream cross bars look awesome on my Jeep Compass. Also ordered the sks lock cores to match the key on my ski rack.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great rack system. Exactly what I needed to get my rack setup. If you are unsure on what you need for a rack check out and enter your car into the fitkit tool or give us a call!

    Tough Stuff

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These are heavy-duty little fellas. They look good, and fit fine, the instructions made it simple.

    It took a lil' longer than I anticipated to install these, but it was cold and we had coco and beer so that was fine.

    They look nice on my Subaru.

    Yakima Skyline tower system is solid!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Easy to install and easy to use! Got the JetStream Base Rack Bars with these. No reservations or worries with carrying my MB's. Only snag that came up but was quickly resolved was that one of my bikes didn't fit but I just got the 15mm T axel for adapter and it fit.
