What they say: Our most versatile, aerodynamic bike mount on your car. It carries your complete bike —no wheel removal needed, with universal mounting system.
What we say: If you don’t want to risk scratching or even hazing the finish on your beloved bike, then the Yakima FrontLoader is a great option, as it grips the tire of your bike’s front wheel rather than its frame. Which also makes it an ideal solution for bikes made from carbon-fiber. By clasping the front wheel vertically, it holds it via three contact points, whilst clamping it firmly in place.
Your bike’s rear wheel, meanwhile, is held down via a simple strap. Thanks to its clever design, the FrontLoader is able to accommodate various wheel diameters from BMX-sized 20-in ones right up to 29-inch ones for MTBs -all with a quick and easy adjustment. And as it holds the front wheel, it’s compatible with all brake and axle types.
Conclusion: A smart design that can be folded down when not in use and is compatible with 99.9% of bikes.
