Review of Yakima Roof Rack Y00422

Today we are going to be taking a look at the Yakama Core Bar Cross Bars. These are aerostyle steel cross bars, that's going to let you mount clamp on carriers and accessories on the roof of your vehicle. You can pair these with Yakama Towers and a fit kit to create a complete roof rack system. Those items are sold separately, so if you need to equip your vehicle with those items you can check out your options here at Now these bars are very unique they're going to have an aerodyamic jet flow design that's going to create a quiet roof rack system. And they're going to feature a tear drop shape, so that's going to control air flow, which is going to significantly reduce wind noise and vibration. Now these are aerostyle bars. These are going to reduce drag, which is going to help maintain your vehicle's fuel efficiency. These are also full length crossbars, so what that does is it simply maximizes the amount of space that you have on your vehicle for your carriers and for your accessories.

These bars are designed to work with most bike, water, snow and cargo carriers that have a universal mount design. Now the most unique thing about these aerostyle bars is that they're made from a galvanized steel construction, so they're going to be extremely strong and they're going to be an extremely durable design. That steel construction is rolled form. And then over the steel we're going to have a nice black vinyl coating that's going to enhance the look of your vehicle, as well as your roof rack system. And it's going to reduce rusting corrosion, making sure these bars last for a really, really long time. Now the unit's going to come with the included end caps. These are going to give the bars a nice, finished, clean look.

And it's going to prevent water and debris from getting inside the bars. What I'm want to do for you real quick is I'm going to go ahead and remove an end cap from the end of one of these bars. That way we can get a real nice look at the internal construction. You can see the steel construction and the aerodesign with that tear drop shape. So here you can see that it's going to be that galvanized steel construction. Then it's going to have that nice layer of vinyl coating going all the way around the bar. Aerodesign.

And then here at the back we have that nice tear drop shape. So that's going to help reduce the amount of wind noise, reduce the amount of drag. Overall, it's going to make for a nice, strong, durable, dependable and quiet roof rack system for our vehicle. Now I want to go ahead and take a look at measurements of the bars. If we take a look at the width, we can see that that's going to give us a width measurement of about two and three quarters of an inch. We take a look at the height measurement, we can see that that's going to give us a height at the thickest point of about one inch.

Now when it comes to the length, these bars are available in 50 inch, 60 inch, 70 inch and 80 inch lengths. And these bars are going to be covered with a limited lifetime warranty. Now these are designed to fit baseline, ridgeline, skyline and timberline towers from Yakama. Those are sold separately. And so it's also designed to be an easy installation. What Yakama does is with a purchase of the bars, they're going to include these brackets right here, two piece design. And these are going to work with all of the towers that I mentioned earlier. Again, they're designed to fit your baseline, ridgeline, skyline and timberline towers. That's going to do it for today's look at the Yakama core bar cross bars.
