3 x Yakima FrontLoader bike carriers with locking roof bars

£369.95
RRP:
Code: YK8002104-P3
This package deal is only available for £274.95 if there are CRUZ bars for your vehicle (CRUZ has bars for most vehicles), but we're also offering packages with Atera and Whispbar bars, at higher prices but with even bigger savings.

All these packages provide everything you need. All you need to do is to click on "Add to basket and choose bars" (see bottom of page), then choose your car to see the roof bar options and the savings.


This superb package deal provides 3 x Yakima FrontLoader bike carriers and a set of roof bars. All you need to do is to click on "Add to basket and choose bars" to place your order; we'll then show you which roof bars are available. You'll pay more for aluminium than steel, and you'll pay more for Atera or Whispbar, but the savings on buying the components individually are huge. We're confident that you won't find such good value anywhere else.

Yakima’s FrontLoader is their most versatile bike rack. It fits virtually all cross bars and takes a massive range of bikes. The bike is held only by its tyres, so no part of the rack touches the bike frame or cables and you don't need to worry about scratching your frame. It's the ideal way to carry carbon framed bikes, bikes with non-standard forks or disc brakes which won't fit in a fork mount carrier.

It's quick and easy to install - no tools are required. Securing the bike is done at roof level so you don't need to reach too far up. Your bike is held upright while you fit the bike into the rack.

Other features:

  • The adjustable wheel tray takes a range of wheel sizes, including deep section wheels up to 70mm (a longer wheel strap is also available).
  • Takes tyres between 20” and 29”, as well as 700c road tyres.
  • Accommodates disc brakes, thru axles and full suspension frames.
  • An integrated cable lock secures your bike to the rack while another lock secures the rack to your roof bars.
  • The arms fold flat when you are not carrying a bike.

This carrier fits around bars up to 88mm wide by 44mm deep, so it will fit all our roof bars.

Please note, the carrier can be mounted either forward facing or rear facing, depending on the size of your car, to allow you to open the tailgate fully on shorter vehicles.

Just had a holiday in Portsmouth, driving down there from Glasgow, had 2 bikes on the roof first time I had used the Yakima Frontloaders over long distance, The bikes were there on arrival, still held firmly in place I'd say job done, only downside was the hieght of the 4x4 but this would have been same for any roof mounted racks, problem solved with a step up both bikes on in under 5 mins.

I've got other bike carriers including Thule ones, but they don't come close to the quality and ease of use as this Yakima Front Loader. It's so easy to get your bike in and out, and holds it securely while you finish tightening it place while putting your bike on. If you have a carbon frame bike then this is a must buy as your bike is secured by the wheels only. It's so good I have bought 3 now and got rid of my others. They are expensive but worth every penny.

Easy to fit, easy to use. Only slight fault is it sits quite high from the roof bars when

The rack itself is quite heavy and it took a few wiggles to make sure it was secure on my Pro Rack Whispbar. But, once on, it is a cinch to put a bike on it. I have used it for my road bike (700x20 tyres), my mountain bike (29ers) amd my daughters bike (24"), all fit really well on the Front Loader, and are so much easier to load than the Cruz Bici-Racks that I have. Definitely Recommended.

Great bike carrier, easy to mount on the roof rack and easy to secure the bike and release it. Used with my very expensive pride and joy TT bike, so I trust this item loads.
- 07/07/2014 | Vehicle type: Estate
This bike carrier is great, feels very secure when up on the roof all tightened down, I feel happier now knowing it is up on the roof in a very secure and balanced fashion. It is very easy to install, so easy in fact, that I take it off when I have finished with it, unlike some of them that people seem to leave on and ruin their fuel consumption into the bargain! I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend to a friend and will be looking to buy another for my son when he is ready to move up to a bigger bike! Well priced and fantastic quality. The only gripe I would have is that the lock on it could be more substantial, but as I never leave it anywhere dodgy with bikes on the top, that doesn't really bother me!

Easy to use, supports the bike well without touching the carbon frame. Good value
- 04/07/2014 | Vehicle type: Estate
Took some time to research before buying this and so glad I did. It came out well in on line reviews and has been a joy to use. It 's very well made and very easy to operate.
- 04/07/2014 | Vehicle type: Estate
Great, flexible roof rack which will fit all the bikes we have - from a child's 24" wheel road bike up to our carbon road bikes. And all without putting pressure on those delicate carbon frames! Recommended.

I'm not overly impressed with this bike carrier - bits broken in the box on arrival - moreover I find that getting the bike into a stable position when putting it on the car a bit dicey ..... you need to get the rear part of the front section to rotate forward to hold the front wheel securely and this is not straightforward when the bile is above you - (the guy in the video on the web site is doing this at table height - not holding the bike above a car which is entirely different). I've got the knack now but have to be careful not to end up with my bike crashing down onto the car roof - wish I'd gone for the more expensive INNO which holds both wheels ...... - Once the bike is up there it's secure enough but that's not special ... that's what it's supposed to do!
- 03/07/2014 | Vehicle type: Hatchback
Well built easy to fit rack, holds bike securely never any worries about a mishap.
- 02/07/2014 | Vehicle type: Hatchback
It is easy to use and set up. The design means my carbon frame is nice and safe and my bike feels securely located to the rack. The integrated cable lock isn't up to much due mainly to being attached by a plastic clip. I use my own, so not a big issue. My only concern is the design of the front rail attachment device. It is made solely of plastic and is quite narrow meaning there is quite a lot of strain when turning. Had this had been made of metal, then I would have no concerns. It just means that I check for signs of movement and stress whenever I stop. Overall I am happy with my purchase.

Very easy to fit and remove, very easy to load bikes onto, drove 600 miles recently carrying my mountain bike up to scotland and back at 70 mph, no issues at all, thinking of replacing my other two thule racks with these as they don't damage the bike in any way, bit more wind noise than the thule when not in use but still bearable

About our reviews:

We test, and often use personally, almost all the products we sell, and we stand behind our comments and recommendations unless customers convince us they need changing. Our Customer Services and Workshop staff also have input into our recommendations.

But it's because we've learned a lot over many years that customer feedback is so important. Fresh, first time out opinions are the most useful ones, and in any event we certainly don't have access to the full range of vehicles that our customers have between them.

Product feedback from existing customers helps our new customers make choices, and also helps our suppliers with their product development.

We e-mail our customers a week or so after their order arrives and invite them to send in a review.

Some reviews are suitable for multiple products. Where appropriate we may, for example, use the same review for a number of different roof bar products where the only difference is the length of the roof bar.

Delivery charges and arrangements:

We charge a contribution towards delivery costs, depending on what you order, where you live, and how quickly you want the goods.

For most UK addresses, the charge for our two to three day service is £5.50 (£9.50 for orders including a roof box) and our charge for Next Working Day deliveries is £8.50 (£12.50 for orders involving a roof box). AutoSock, shoe chains, RUD i-Sock, and small spare parts, are charged £3.95 (Royal Mail Tracked), £4.95 (Royal Mail Express Tracked) or £5.95 (express courier, usually Next Working Day).

There are different charges for any delivery including a sea crossing, and deliveries to Skye - we will contact you with a quote on receipt of order.

Orders for Next Working Day delivery need to be received by 4.00pm.

There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Next Working Day orders placed on a Friday will be delivered on the Monday, Next Working Day orders placed on a Saturday will be delivered on the Tuesday.

We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver on a day and at an address which suits you. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.

No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. All courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.

Payment options:

We take the following cards, and also PayPal. Please note that the entry on your card statement will be from "The Roof Box Company".

Deciding which bike carriers to buy is not always easy, especially as you may not have had experience of using bike carriers before. We hope that our buying guides provide useful guidance about which bike carrier 'strategy' will be most appropriate for your circumstances, as well as highlighting the best features of particular models. We also have troubleshooting FAQs - for example, some customers struggle at first to fit four bikes onto a tow ball carrier, and wonder whether a different carrier would allow the bikes to be spaced wider apart. (It won't, but we have some good tips which make bike fitting much easier.)

Our bike carriers Exchange Scheme covers roof mounting and tow ball mounting bike carriers only. Rear door mounting / strap on carriers are not included, and nor are roof bars. It allows you to exchange within 90 days of invoice date. Most exchanges are for roof mounting upgrades, or are tow ball carriers with very basic tilting systems being exchanged for easy to use sliding / tilting carriers.

These are the rules of the bike carriers Exchange Scheme:

  • You are allowed one exchange only.
  • The original equipment must be in "as new" condition, subject only to fair wear and tear.
  • The replacement items must be different models from the originals.
  • The replacement items must not be part of a package deal or be from our Bargains section.
  • Roof bars are never part of the Exchange Scheme.

This is how the exchange scheme works:

  • We charge in full for the replacement items, including the appropriate carriage charge and a charge for any packaging needed for the return of the originals.
  • We pay the return carriage costs.
  • When the originals arrive back here we refund you for their invoice value, but you won't get back more than the invoice value of the replacements. In other words, if the replacements are cheaper than the originals we won't be giving you "extra cash back".

If you want to exchange bike carriers that were purchased as part of a package deal, the scheme works in exactly the same way. Please note that the roof bars in package deals will be invoiced at the full “Our Price” that was advertised at the time of order, with the bike carriers representing the difference between the package deal price and the roof bars, this difference being split equally between the number of bike carriers. You will see therefore that package deal bike carriers are often invoiced at a very substantial discount to the cost of buying these items on their own.

Please note: we can only collect items from mainland UK.
