Yakima black HighRoad 8002124

RRP: £175.00
Code: YK8002124

Yakima’s HighRoad is a truly versatile bike rack. It fits most cross bars and most bikes. The bike is held firmly by its front wheel (with the rack only touching the tyre), so it's ideal for anyone who doesn't want their carbon frames to be clamped, or anyone with bikes that won't fit on a frame-holder or fork-holder rack.

Yakima’s HighRoad is a truly versatile bike rack and fits virtually all cross bars. The bike is held firmly by its front wheel (with the rack only touching the tyre), so it's ideal for anyone who doesn't want their carbon frames or cables to be clamped, or anyone whose bottle holder is in the wrong place for a frame-holder carrier.

As well as being a favourite for those with carbon-framed bikes, it's also the ideal choice for anyone whose bikes have non-standard forks or disc brakes, the ones that won't fit in a fork-holder carrier.

It's quick and easy to install - no tools are required. Loading is effortless too, just roll your bike into the front wheel catcher and it will be held steady, hands free, while you make the final adjustments. Securing the bike is done at roof level so you don't need to reach too far up. The integrated TorqueRight™ knob quickly and easily secures the bike with precision; it clicks to let you know you've reached the correct tension. With most tyre-hold racks you have to pre-set the wheel holder to the size of the bike wheel. The HighRoad is self-adjusting, making it much easier if you don't always us it to carry the same bike.

Other features:

  • Takes wheels between 26” and 29”.
  • Accommodates disc brakes, thru axles and full suspension frames.
  • The adjustable rear wheel holder takes a range of wheel sizes from 1.75" to 3.5-4" (dependent on rim height).
  • Includes locks - an integrated cable lock secures your bike to the rack while another lock secures the rack to your roof bars.
  • You can add your own D-lock to the integrated lock loop for additional bike security.
  • 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. They attach to bars using a rubber strap with a stainless steel core. Alternatively, adapters are also available that allow you to fit the rack to T-track aluminium bars using the T-track channel

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. It's also very simple to swap the bike from left to right-hand side mounting - all you need to do it turn the wheel strap around.

Exchange scheme: Roof mounting bike carriers are part of our 90 day exchange scheme. The bottom line is that if you aren't satisfied that the "Yakima HighRoad" fits the bill you can exchange it for an alternative roof mount, or a tow bar bike rack.

Delivery FAQs

When will my order arrive?
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Express Delivery orders placed on a Friday (before 1pm) should be delivered on the Monday or Tuesday, Express Delivery orders placed on a Saturday or Sunday should be delivered on the Tuesday or Wednesday. The arrangements for Very Heavy Items are different and are shown above.

What about Next Working Day delivery?
We have offered a reliable Next Working Day service for well over 20 years but, due to the pressure on the couriers caused by the coronavirus crisis and the huge increase in online shopping, we can no longer be confident about the delivery date, which is why we now call the service ‘Express delivery’. Most Express delivery orders will arrive on the next or second working day, but some will arrive on the second or third working day, or be split between these days. So-called “split deliveries” happen when the couriers do not have enough trailer space for everything that should be moved around the UK, so they will load what they can and leave the rest for the next trailer.

Is my delivery day guaranteed?
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. As well as split deliveries, 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.

Do I need to be at home?
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver to an address which suits you – this does not need to be your home address. 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.

Yakima has a comprehensive network of international distributors, so we do not sell or ship Yakima branded products overseas, including to Northern Ireland or to the Republic of Ireland. We hope you can find the Yakima products you want, locally.

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. Not just an alternative colour.
  • 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".

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