Modern, 4 strap design
The HalfBack 3 features a new modern design which matches the look of today vehicles design and only uses 4 straps, two at the top of your trunk or hatch and two at the bottom of your trunk or hatch, to attach the rack to your vehicle. This makes it easier to install and remove the rack.
Easy to use ZipStrips
Attaching your bikes is easier than ever using Yakima's ZipStrip attachment straps. These straps which have gained popularity on the Yakima RidgeBack and FullTilt hitch mount racks are quick to attach and remove and are easier on your fingers compared to rubber stretch over straps.
SuperCush padding protects your bike
The cradles of the HalfBack feature SuperCush padding which protect your bike from scrapes and scratches while carrying your bike to your favourite cycling destination.
Each bike is held in place by three ZipStrips, two onto the crossbar of the bike, and one onto the seat post of your bike. This prevents the bike from swaying back and forth while driving.
