YOU R GUIDE TO

OVE RCOMING RACK E NVY

R A C K E N V Y. It’s a terrible affliction, affecting millions of Americans who are using substandard methods to transport their gear. You can see its terrible effects in disorganized trunks of cars, disheveled backs of SUVs, cramped minivans and haphazard pickup truck beds everywhere. You can also see it on the faces of the unfortunate drivers who own other brands of rack products – none of which are nearly as versatile, easy to use or attractive as Yakima Racks. Unfortunately what individuals afflicted with rack envy don’t know is that they’re suffering needlessly. For every sport and every budget, there’s a Yakima Rack that is right for everyone. Dollar for dollar, pound for pound, there’s no better rack system to help you get over your Rack Envy, and on your way to the great outdoors.

T H A N K S T O YA K I M A , no longer shall families suffer deprivation on camping trips due to lack of cargo space. No longer shall grown men and women cry in shame over their flimsy rack products. No longer shall parents feel embarrassment for leaving their kids’ bicycles behind on a weekend away. No longer shall cyclists get chain grease on their car seats or let their pedals tear up their upholstery. And no longer shall kayaks, skis and snowboards gather dust in the garage while their owners feel like total losers. In this day and age, it’s inhumane to let people suffer from Rack Envy. Fortunately, the cure is simple. Buy a Yakima Rack. It’s affordable, and it will put you in a new envy-free state of mind.

I N S I G H T- I N S P I R E D I N N O VAT I O N OUR SECRET SAUCE THAT MAKES YAKIMA RACKS THE BEST IN THE WORLD.

At Yakima, our designers constantly follow around outdoor enthusiasts like you (in a totally non-stalker way) to find out everything you could ever want in a rack. This causes many light bulbs to hover over our heads, and lots of nifty features to be incorporated into our products. We call this process “Insight-Inspired Innovation.” And as a result, every one of our products has the following fundamental elements:

FUNCTIONALITY

DURABILITY

BEAUTY

Thanks to these special ingredients, you can rest assured when you buy a Yakima you have the finest gear-hauling solution money can buy. And, in your little corner of the universe, Rack Envy will be a thing of the past.

I N S I G H T- I N S P I R E D I N N OVAT I O N AT WO R K :

We include nifty touches like bottle openers on many products

The SKYBOX LOPRO’S lid features an integrated solar-powered lighting system that never needs batteries and illuminates as soon as you open the box

Integrated binding lifts on FATCAT ski mount give you more clearance above your car roof

The BOWDOWN boat mount folds down when not in use, giving you a quieter ride. Plus you don’t have to worry about zoning out and driving it into the top of your garage.

MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR FACTORY CROSSBARS

If you have a factory rack system that looks similar to the one shown here, you may be able to trick it out with Yakima Universal Mounts in a matter of minutes. Factory rooftop rack systems are great for carrying a few pieces of gear or cargo, but typically offer lower capacity than a Yakima Rooftop Rack System.

The Yakima Rooftop Rack System is made up of towers, which attach to your vehicle and serve as the base of the entire system, and crossbars, which hold the mount that secures your gear. Crossbars come in different lengths, depending on your vehicle width and amount of gear you want to carry. NOTE: LOAD L IMITS VARY FROM MOD EL TO M O D E L .

presentsINSPIR ATIONAL TALES

OF

DEFEATING R ACK ENVY

IN THE DARK AGES OF THE EARLY 21ST CENTURY, millions if not gazillions of people suffered

from undiagnosed Rack Envy due to sad, pathetic gear transportation methods. At least until Dr. Ernest rnest Kleinman, PhD, MD, M DDS, BMF became the first-ever scientist-type guy to identify Rack Envy as a mental disorder, and understand the power of a Yakima Rack in its treatment. Thanks to his research (along with nifty Yakima products), outdoor enthusiasts everywhere now enjoy hassle-free gear transportation and happier, Rack Envy-free lives. Dr. Kleinman was also the first scientist to have his head cryogenically frozen and blasted into space so it can be thawed out by alien civilizations and help defeat Rack Envy throughout the universe. GODSPEED, DR. KLEINMAN’S FROZEN HEAD, WHEREVER YOU MAY BE.

presentsINSPIR ATIONAL TALES

OF

DEFEATING R ACK ENVY

AFTER TEARING A HOLE IN THE UPHOLSTERY of his car’s backseat while transporting his

prized carbon fiber bike, Robert Dinkins was so crippled by Rack Envy he did nothing but mope around und his house in a bathrobe making excuses not to go for a ride. Then, he saw the bike section of Yakima.com and felt inspired to make a life-changing decision: he purchased a Yakima SPROCKETROCKET, which allowed easy and secure loading of his prized bike atop his vehicle. Now he rides around exciting new locations every weekend in a bathrobe, much to the chagrin of local residents, and serves as a bathrobe-clad inspiration to Rack Envy overcomers everywhere.

presentsINSPIR ATIONAL TALES

OF

DEFEATING R ACK ENVY

WHILE READING THE FINE PRINT on her health insurance policy, Sue Jenkins noticed she wasn’t sn’t

covered for “Injuries due to loading aquatic vessels onto car roofs.” That totally freaked her out and made her paranoid about getting a hernia while loading her kayak onto her inferior off-brand boat rack. Then she noticed she was also not covered for “totally freaking out and getting paranoid about hernias that aren’t covered by inadequate health insurance coverage.” That was the last straw. Sue bought herself a RACKANDROLL trailer from Yakima. So now she can tow her boat behind her car without fear of injury...Or spending hours arguing about medical bills with the incompetent customer service department at her HMO.

Like having too much stuff in your car, or letting dirty gear damage your interior. One feature that makes our boxes extremely aggravation-free is our quick-installation clamps. They ensure you won’t skin your knuckles or scratch the paint on your car. All installation, adjustments and tightening are done conveniently on the inside of the box. It’s simple. No dings, no bleeding and no swearing.

CAMPING

THERE’S A LOT MORE TO CAMPING THAN SLEEPING IN THE WOODS. Turn a plain old camping trip into the multi-sport adventure of a lifetime. It all starts with a cargo box. Then, add on a bike mount, boat mount or any combination thereof, the possibilities are endless. There’ll be no more yearning for the toys you’ve left at home or jealousy toward better-equipped fellow campers. Just the fulfilling satisfaction of having the finest gear-hauling outfit known to man.

SKYBOX ™ 18 These premium multi-sport boxes come in several sizes. But we think you’ll find that 18 cubic feet is just perfect for family campers and hardcore enthusiasts alike. You can even trick it out with an integrated accessory system featuring nets and a base pad, to keep your gear from rattling around like it’s inside a giant maraca. FOR OR MORE ON THE SKYBOX, SKYBOX SEE P. 50-51. 50-51

ROCKETBOX ™ 15s This box is great for shorter roofs, sedans or SUV owners who don’t want piles of camping gear to spill out of the rear and smother the people in the backseat. With 15 cubic feet, it’s a perfect amount of extra space on a family weekend getaway. FOR MORE ROCKETBOX SERIES CARGO BOXES, SEE P. 52.

WH Y A RE YA K IMA R ACKS GRE AT FO R CA MPING?

DEFEATING R ACK ENVY

TIDDLYWINKS CHAMPION JÜRGEN JÜRGENSEN was on ski holiday when he removed his

gloves to operate his ski rack in sub-zero temperatures and suffered a severe case of frostbite. “Bork de spork voot meese bork bork bork!” he cried, which is apparently an untranslatable Swedish swear involving a moose, a combination spoon/fork and multiple uses of the word “bork.” Then he purchased a FATCAT from Yakima, with easy one-button operation. Now he can open and close his ski mount with mittens on and protect his precious fingers from the cold. Thus, he overcame Rack Envy, did not have to give up skiing and successfully defended his Scandinavian Tiddlywinks crown against archrival Sven Svenson. “Bork de spork voot Sven Svenson bork bork bork!” he cried...Which is pretty much the same swear as before, except the thing that normally happens to the moose happens to Sven Svenson instead.

OUR ENVIRONMENTAL STRATEGY IS REMARKABLY SIMPLE:

REDUCE WHAT WE CAN. OFFSET WHAT WE CAN’T. AND SUPPORT THOSE WHO ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE. We’re dedicated to helping people get out and enjoy this beautiful planet of ours. And we want to keep it beautiful for generations to come. So we’re doing everything in our power to make sure our environmental impact, or “footprint,” stays as small as possible. Our primary objective is reduction. We constantly look for ways to create less waste and consume less energy. Then, what we can’t reduce, we help offset. In cooperation with Carbonfund.org, we fund Green-e and ERT-certified carbon-reducing projects, like the development of solar and wind energy. Here are a few facts and figures to help you wrap your melon around the kind of impact we’re having:

We use up to 85% post-consumer recycled content and water-based inks in all packaging We refuse to use white cardboard, which contaminates water processing facilities with chlorine HERE ARE JUST A F E W W AY S W E ’ R E REDUCING OUR E N V I R O N M E N TA L F O OT P R I N T:
