Is Yakima Roof Ski Carrier Compatible with Thule Crossbars


Hi, I just bought a car with Thule bars included. I have a Yakima ski rack. Is there anything out there that will allow Yakima equipment to be added to Thule bars?


Expert Reply:

Most roof rack ski carriers, including Yakima's own carriers like the FatCat EVO 6 # Y03096 and FreshTrack # Y03093, will directly fit the most common roof rack crossbar shapes including Thule square bars, Yakima round bars and most other elliptical/aero type bars including Thule's AeroBlade type.

All Yakima ski carriers are shown on the linked page for reference.

The MightMounts # Y03590 you referenced are needed when installing carriers on very large factory crossbars that are too large for the carrier's standard mounting hardware. Thule square and aero bars will be fine with virtually any type and brand of ski carrier.

If you are unsure about the compatibility of the ski rack's mounting hardware please send me a photo showing the entire rack and one showing a close-up view of one of the mounts.
