Fit of Yakima Ridgeback 4 Bike Rack # Y02458 On 2015 Subaru Outback w/ OEM Hitch


can you verify that you have the yakima ridgeback 4 with the new design with the 2 holes for better hitch placement.. I have a 2015 outback with the oem hitch and this is necessary for the fit of the car.


Expert Reply:

Our current stock of the Yakima Ridgeback 4, part # Y02458 is all the new version with the two hitch pin holes. The rack would indeed be compatible with your 2015 Subaru Outback with the OEM hitch.

If you'll be transporting women's bikes or bikes with sharply-angled top tubes, you might also consider a frame adapter bar like part # 64005. The bar spans the distance between the handlebar gooseneck and the seat post, which provides a secondary attachment point for the bike rack. This allows the bike to be carried level, which maximizes ground clearance. I'll link you to a video showing how the adapter bar works.
