Safely transport your bike on the roof of your vehicle with the Yakima FrontLoader. This universal fit roof bike carrier quickly installs on most crossbars and fits a wide range of wheels from 20" to 29".


The Yakima FrontLoader provides a convenient and safe way to transport your bike on the roof of your vehicle. This roof bike rack has a universal fit to most factory, round, or square crossbars, and installs quickly and easily without tools. Loading your bike is also easy. Simply adjust the wheel hoop setting to your bike tire size (from 20" to 29"), roll your bike in an upright position onto the carrier, tighten the red knob, and secure the rear wheel with the wheel strap. A sliding wheel tray makes it easy to position the rear wheel and the wheel hoop includes easy to see wheel size labels for simple adjustment.

The roof bike carrier does not touch the painted surfaces of your bike and will work with disc brakes, thru axles, and unusual suspensions. An integrated cable lock locks the bike to the carrier and the carrier can be locked to the roof bars. Two SKS lock cores (sold separately) are required to use the locking features. The Yakima FrontLoader includes a limited lifetime warranty.
