Yakima 8002479 Holdup EVO 2 Bike Rack Loaded

The Yakima HoldUp EVO is a premium, tray-style bike rack that lets you carry 2 bikes using your vehicle's hitch. This rack is specifically designed to carry bikes with big tires and wide handlebars, but it will carry just about any bike, including those with wheels from 20" to 29", carbon frames, disc brakes, thru axles, or full suspensions. You can quickly tilt or fold the rack with the KickStart foot pedal and easy-access tilt handle, saving time when accessing gear or loading bikes. The locking SpeedKnob makes installation and removal of the rack a painless process.


Wheel-Mount Design for Easy Bike Loading

Yakima 8002479 Holdup EVO Bike Rack Large Front Wheel Holders

The HoldUp EVO is easy to load, even if your bikes have monster wheels. The deep, contoured front wheel cradles accommodate just about any wheel out there, and the pivoting arms with StrongArm technology ensure that your bikes are held firmly in place.


Yakima 8002479 Holdup EVO Bike Rack Front Wheel Secured

To load a bike, simply place your front wheel in the holder, rotate the pivoting arm up and over the wheel, and press down firmly on the ratcheting hook. To release the hook, simply press the built-in gray button and slide the hook up and off your wheel.


Yakima 8002479 Holdup EVO Adjustable Rear Wheel Holders

Large rear wheel holders allow the HoldUp EVO to accommodate a wide variety of bike wheelbases. These wheel holders pivot front to back, adjusting automatically to your wheel size - no need for sliding and tightening. Secure the wheels in place with the ratcheting straps built into each holder.


Yakima HoldUp EVO Ratcheting Arm No Frame Contact

Mounting bikes by the wheels helps prevent any scratches or scuffs to the paint. The ratcheting hooks are padded, however, so they won't mark your wheels. And the pivot mechanisms in the arms are overbuilt to ensure they keep functioning smoothly over a lifetime of hard use.


Fully Adjustability Bike Trays

Yakima 8002479 Holdup EVO Adjustable Trays

The wheel trays on the HoldUp EVO are fully adjustable to ensure that you have all the space you need when mounting bikes with mammoth handlebars, such as a 29er. To adjust a wheel tray, loosen the 4 bolts where the tray attaches to the rack base and slide the tray left or right to achieve the desired spacing. Retighten the bolts and you're ready to roll with optimum handlebar clearance and no fear of bike-to-bike contact during transport.


Complete Security for Bikes and Rack

Yakima 8002479 Holdup EVO Bike Rack Built-in Cable Locks

The HoldUp EVO has a cable lock built into the end of each pivoting arm. These cables loop through your bike frames and attach to posts on the bike rack arms to secure your bikes in place. The cables store in the arms when not in use.


Yakima 8002479 Holdup EVO Bike Rack SpeedKnob Anti-Wobble System

The SpeedKnob makes the installation process fast and easy. Once you have the hitch pin in place, simply turn the knob to secure the rack within your hitch receiver. As you tighten the knob it activates the anti-rattle wedge within the rack's shank to reduce noise and movement of the rack while mounted. It also has a built-in SKS lock to keep the rack anchored in place, so you won't need to fumble around with a hitch lock.


The cable locks and SpeedKnob include keyed-alike Same Key System (SKS) lock cores. These cores can be swapped out to make all your Yakima products keyed alike.


Tilting Design and Compact Storage

Yakima HoldUp EVO KickStart Foot Pedal

When you're ready to hit the road, the spring-loaded KickStart foot pedal at the base of the rack allows you to quickly position it for loading bikes. Simply step down on the pedal and lower the rack into position.


Yakima 8002479 Holdup EVO Bike Rack Tiled for Rear Cargo Access

A spring-loaded lever conveniently located behind the bike trays tilts the rack down, while fully loaded, so you can gain access to your vehicle's rear cargo area without having to unload your bikes.

Yakima 8002479 Holdup EVO Bike Rack KickStart Foot Pedal

When you are ready to store the rack, use the same lever to easily fold the rack up against the rear of your vehicle. First rotate the front wheel holders inward and tilt the rear wheel holders inward, then rotate the pivot arms down and use the ratcheting hooks to secure the arms to the rear wheel holders. Once the arms are in place, pull back on the lever and fold the rack up against your vehicle.



Optional 2-Bike Add-On

Yakima 8002479 Holdup EVO Bike Rack Add-on for 4 Bike Capacity

There is a 2-bike add-on available (Y02482 - sold separately) for the HoldUp EVO that will allow you convert it from a 2-bike carrier to a 4-bike carrier. To install the add-on, simply remove the endcap from the bike rack base, slide the add-on's shank into the hole on the bike rack, and secure the shank with the included bolt.

Travelled cross country last year with this bike rack. Last winter during our trip back from Florida one one the vertical support arms snapped off at the base. Since Yakima has a one year warranty we were able to get a replacement part free. eEtrailer helped by providing a purchase receipt. We haul mountain bikes. A plus for etrailer customer support but I have my concerns for the long term use on this EVO rack for durability. My last Yakima bike rack lasted over 20 years.

After one year of use on my Tesla Y, I still love the Yakima HoldUp EVO Bike Rack. I don't have an EVO bike, but a guy can dream, and I don't want to have to buy another rack in the future if that dream comes true. It's sturdy as all get-out and holds our bikes tight and a secure, like a teenager holds his prom-date's hand. I love that it tilts to let me access the rear hatch as opposed to having to break the rear window for access like I used to have to do with my old rack. The security cables could be a tad longer and you have to get clever about tucking them out of the way while loading your bike, but they're still a nice feature. Thankfully, Yakima lets you purchase matching locks for all their gear, so I now have a single key for my roof rack, kayak rack, bike rack, house, and car. The only drawback to the bike rack is that it has the weight and density of a black hole, but on the plus side, if you take it off or put it on your car, you can skip the gym for the week. I highly recommend it.




by:

I have had this rack for 1 year and love it! It's extremely sturdy and my bikes are very stable when driving even over rough terrain. This is my second Yakima bike rack and have been very pleased with the brand. Yakima racks are easy to install, tighten and lock. I live in CA and George was very helpful when I purchased this rack - he provided me with shipping/delivery updates and made sure I was happy with my purchase.




by:

Overall very impressed with quality of the bike rack. The only issue I have is with my long wheel base Fat bike. It wants to rock out of the front tire cradle because the back tire is past the rack and the weight of the bike pushes it rearward. To solve it I have to bungee the rear tire to the bike rack frame pulling it to the front. You can see the green bungee in my picture. This does not happen with my wife’s bike.

This is mounted on a 2016 Yukon. With the rack tipped pack you can lift the gate about 3/4 of the way to access the rear area.

Etrailer shipped super fast.




by:

I assembled and installed the rack at a leisurely pace. It took a little while to get the spine bolt properly aligned, but once I got past that the rest of the installation went quickly. I’m guessing it was about half an hour from start to finish and a good bit of that was unpacking the rack and all its hardware. Mounting my beach cruiser was easy. I road-tested everything and I’m very happy with this purchase. The advice I got from Kyle at etrailer was excellent and follow up has been great.




by:

Well-made, sturdy rack. Easy installat ion.




by:

Have yet to install but wanted to comment on the great customer service. Initially was sent the wrong item. When I contacted the seller they immediately responded by sending the correct hitch and a prepaid return label. Additional, they lived up to their competitive price policy and gave me credit when I found the same item at a lower price.
Fantastic customer service.
Check back later for hitch review.

Vet pleased with the performance. We have made server all trips cross country We always take our bikes and ride wherever possible. This rack has served us well with no problems.

Fast shipping easy to put together. Nice and tight in hitch 2". Loaded bikes on rack and fit with no problems 1 full suspension 29" tires and 1 with 26" wheels no problem adjusting rack. have not used yet will update after a couple of trips.


Comments
It is still holding up. Had a couple of issues that Yakima fixed. One was the rear tire holder fell off the pins that hold the holder were on recall. The other was the front tire holder the one that comes down the the tire. The shims that keep it from binding got stuck and cause the shims to break. Yakima fixed this as well. Over all love the bike rack. The best part is the wife can put her bike on the rack by herself with no problems. Do not have the 26 inch tire bike anymore. She got a 27.5 x 2.8 with full suspension and it fits no problem. Would recommend to others.

E-trailer 5 stars, product could be be better, it works, heavy,, should have told us about the fender (works better with out the fender), very stiff in moving up and down dbl. heavy with E-bike. If you have a back problem take it slow.




by:

I received the Yakima bike rack just yesterday so have not used it yet. I will be using the rack for a Giant eBike and a Trek roadbike. Everything in my dealings with etrailer was very smooth. I even received the shipment a day early. Brendan was very professional and good to work with. I would recommend etrailer for your bike rack needs.




by:

The products are good, ordering the parts were easy but the packaging was a little rough. I purchased a bike rack and two bearing buddy bras that they stuffed inside the rack box, need less to say they were crushed in shipping. The bra's are soft plastic and are still okay to use but the packing was wasted.

The Yakima rack is working out nicely, Its a bit heavy but very well built.

Review from a similar HoldUp EVO in Hitch Bike Racks


Reasonably quick delivery from etrailer, no issues there.

The rack arrived in decent shape (boxes weren't destroyed), and assembly of the 2-place rack and the add-on only took ~1 hour.

I am somewhat concerned that the cross-bars where you attach the trays that hold the bicycles are welded to the underside of the rack. Seems it would be much stronger if it were welded on top. I'm hoping the 4 bolts that hold these on will hold up over time - I had my last bike rack for 20+ years, we'll see if these can go the distance.


Comments
As long as the rack is assembled and used according to the instructions, the rack is covered by a limited lifetime warranty. Yakima does a very good job of standing behind their products.

Review from a similar HoldUp EVO in Hitch Bike Racks


Very Stable rack. Wide range of bike sizes fit easily. Ability to drop rack and open SUV hatch is great. I like being able to mount either 2 or 4 bike mounts on the hitch, but the rack is extremely heavy when using all 4 mounts.

Review from a similar HoldUp EVO in Hitch Bike Racks


I purchased this rack after extensive research and have been using it regularly for several months. I am very pleased with this purchase as it has provided exactly what I was looking for in a bike rack. The reasons I purchased this rack (in no particular order) were: price, features, and that it could carry a bike weighing as much as 50lbs (needed for an e-bike). etrailer's web site info is excellent and helpful as were the staff when I had a question. The rack is heavy (but needs to be for what it is designed to do), so taking it on and off the car requires the ability to carry and maneuver a bulky and cumbersome object. Getting bikes on and off this rack could not be easier. Be sure to take it easy driving over bumps because I did shake a bike loose from the rack once; that experience is consistent with info on the e-trailer web site. Other than that the bikes ride very securely, including at highway speeds.


Comments
A year later, after regular use of this rack, the above summary of my experience holds. Ive been very pleased with this rack.

  • Tailgate Clearance With The Yakima HoldUp EVO Bike Rack On A 2015 Ram 1500 Limited
    The Yakima HoldUp EVO Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount # Y02479 has a 13-1/2" distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the rack so you would not be able to fully lower your tailgate while the rack is in the hitch of your 2015 Ram 1500.

  • Replacement Bike Rack for Yakima Stickup that Can Carry Fat Tire Bikes
    When the Yakima Stickup was made (2008 to 2016) the fat tire bike craze hadn't quite hit so they didn't make fat tire adapters for the rack. So instead only option would be to go to a bike rack that was designed for fat bikes like the Yakima Holdup EVO part # Y02479 which can fit bikes with tire widths up to 4.81 inches.

  • Does Yakima HoldUp EVO Bike Rack Work With 27-1/2 Fat Tire Bikes
    Yes, 27-1/2" bikes with tires up to 5" wide will work with the Yakima HoldUp EVO 2-Bike Rack # Y02479. So long as your bikes are both under 50 lbs and they have wheelbased (measured from the center of one wheel to the center of the other wheel) of 48" or less than this rack is going to work superbly for your bikes. This is a fantastic rack that is designed to be very easy to use, installing in your hitch with the twist of a knob on the front of the rack. The HoldUp EVO also provides security...

  • Hitch Bike Rack for Two 70 Lb. E Bikes and my 2021 Lexus RX350
    I may have a solution for you but there are not racks rated for 70 lb. bikes. Instead the Yakima HoldUp EVO 2 Bike Platform Rack part # Y02479 has a capacity of 60 lbs. per bike. This can be achieved in most cases by removing the battery from the bike. This is the way you want to transport them anyway as most manufacturer's require that for travel.

  • Could Yakima Holdup EVO Bike Rack Fold Up and Clear Rear Spare of 2016 Jeep Patriot
    When we installed and reviewed the Yakima Holdup Evo part # Y02479 we found that there was 8 inches from the pin hole to the nearest portion of the rack when folded up so this would work for you to clear the spare of your 2016 Jeep Patriot. If you check out the attached picture you can see the measurement or you can check out the 4:04 mark of the video link I attached as well.

  • Will the Yakima HoldUp EVO Bike Rack Clear the Spare Tire on my 2010 Toyota Rav4
    Yes the Yakima HoldUp EVO Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount # Y02479 offers 13-1/2" from the pin hole to the nearest part of the rack. This means you will have 5" between the rear of your vehicle and the rack. However you will not be able to fold up without contact. Thank you for knowing your measurement it was extremely helpful!! I linked a video on the rack for you if you have not seen it yet.

  • How To Determine if Yakima Holdup EVO Bike Rack Will Clear Vehicle When Folded Up
    When the Yakima HoldUp EVO 2 Bike Platform Rack # Y02479 is folded up it has a distance of 8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest portion of the rack. So what you need to do is measure from the center of the hitch pin hole that's on your 2012 Toyota RAV4 out to the furthest point on the rear spare. If that distance is less than 8 inches this rack will easily fit folded up.

Therefore, yes the Yakima HoldUp EVO 2 will work nicely on your Volvo XC90. The only time you would ever have any issue is with very steep driveways. In which case pretty much any bike rack is going to scrape and there is not much you can do save for removing...

  • Best Trailer Hitch and E-Bike Rack for 2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid
    For your 2020 Toyota RAV4, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76201 because if has a maximum tongue weight rating of 675 lbs (highest available for your RAV4) and also because its mostly hidden design, so it will both look and work great for you.

If you remove the batteries from your e-Bikes and they weigh at or under 50 lbs you're good to go! If not, let me know and I can see if we have other options for your application.

    Yes, the Yakima HoldUp EVO 4 Bike Platform Rack # Y02479-2 will work with bikes that have wheels from 20 - 29 inches in diameter, so it will easily accommodate both your children's bike with 20 inch wheels, and your fat tire bike with 27.5 inch wheels as long as they're not wider than 5 inches. The rear bike cradles have several ridges to accommodate narrow road bikes, fat tire bikes, and just about anything in between. The cradles also tilt side to side which is what allows it to safely...

    Yes a Yakima EVO Holdup part # Y02479 like you mentioned would fit in the Draw Tite front hitch part # 65075 that you mentioned as well. This front hitch sits pretty low due to the lower ride height of your truck so you'd want to be careful on steep inclines so that the rack doesn't drag.

    For a 2017 Ford Mustang GT will need a trailer hitch installed or a trunk mounted option like the SeaSucker Komodo # 298-BK1910-SV that only carries one bike. For the hitch mounted option, I recommend the Draw-Tite Class I Sport, part # 24928. This will provide a trailer hitch receiver for a bike rack on the rear of your vehicle, and installs without drilling or cutting. I've included a video of it being installed on a 2015 Ford Mustang so you can get familiar with the installation process....

  • Does 2 inch Draw Tite Hitch for 2005 Honda Element Have Stopper or Back to Tube
    What happened to you with the hitch that had the stopper is actually a pretty common occurrence. That stopper is in the hitch tubes of Class I hitches to prevent the use of heavier Class II accessories. Reason being that Class I hitches are lighter duty. The Draw Tite hitch part # 75659 actually has an open back and does not have a stopper so it would work well for you as long as your bike rack is designed for a 2 inch trailer hitch. This would work great with the Yakima HoldUp EVO part...

I am not aware of a hitch-mounted 4-bike rack on the market that could handle the type of weight you mentioned in your question. I do also recommend verifying the tongue weight capacity for both your vehicle and its trailer hitch to make sure you won't be exceeding either number.

There have been 3 different models of the HoldUp so if you can let me know which one you have I can see if we have the replacement parts.

From what I've looked at in the past there aren't many bike racks that will sit low enough for that spare tire to fit above it, and none of the bike racks that are compatible with a flat towed vehicle have a low profile. The BackSwing gives you the ability to swing the bike rack out to a 90 degree angle to your hitch receiver so that you have enough access...

  • Did Yakima Make a Holdup 2 Bike Rack that Works with Fat Tire Bikes

The Holdup allows for up to 60lbs per bike while the EVO can hold up to 50lbs per bike. The Holdup can hold tires up to 3" wide while the EVO holds tires up to 4-13/16" wide. The EVO has a handy speed knob which provides tool-free installation and tightens the rack inside your hitch to reduce movement...
