The Yakima BaseClips are specifically engineered for a vehicle and has protective rubber pads which attach to the base of the BaseLine Towers and rest directly on the roof. Custom formed metal brackets with a powder-coat finish provides maximum strength and durability.
The Yakima BaseLine Towers architecture uses a bi-axial DropHook clip motion to secure the clip to the roof and a BarBed design to adapt to the curved styling of modern vehicle roof lines. This means the pitch of the bar and the toe angle of the towers can all be adjusted to better match the contour a vehicle's roofline.
Yakima JetStream load bars are strong, quiet and aerodynamic providing maximum capacity, no whistling or howling and low wind drag. The aluminum BoxBeam construction has a dedicated slot for tower attachment and a separate t-slot track for mounting certain carriers. The patented SmartFill rubber push-down t-slot infill allows for the quick installation/removal of QuickDock equipped carriers.
