Do Yakima HighSpeed and RockyMounts SwitchHitter Bike Racks Fit Square Bars


Considering: Yakima highspeed roof bike rack Rockymounts switch hitter. Are any or all compatible with square cross bars? Thank you.


Expert Reply:

Both of the roof-mounted bike racks you mentioned do fit square crossbars - the Yakima HighSpeed Roof Bike Rack # Y02115 and RockyMounts SwitchHitter LS Roof Bike Rack # RKY1270.

Of the three racks, the best of these and the one I recommend is the Yakima HighSpeed # Y02115.

This rack is the most well-built, as evidenced by the fact it has the highest weight capacity among the three of 40 lbs per bike, while also being capable of holding bikes with tires up to 5" wide. It is also the easiest to mount with its rubber-coated stainless steel straps compared to the brackets of the other racks.

I have added links to video reviews of both racks for you to check out as well.
