I've been waiting for this!
Review by BlacknBlue Posted on June 3, 2017I've been stalling on getting a roof-mounted rack for my thru-axle road bike...the Thule ThruRide 535 was just too bulky in how it mated to the cross bars...I was worried about shattering my moonroof if I was to accidentally actuate it upward...Enter this new offering from Yakima...After discovering...read more this on the Yakima site and checking out a youtube vid, I was thrilled to see that all previous shortcomings of the Thule 535 had been addressed. Not only that, but the Yakima Highspeed has a nifty little cable lock to secure the rear wheel and frame which tucks away discreetly.
I went down to my local auto rack retailer here in town and was pleased to see they had all the parts for my Infiniti Q50 (I mounted this on black aluminum aero-bars). Now that it's installed and I've had a chance to put some miles on it, I can say that my expectations are exceeded. The icing on the cake is the fact that Yakima provides a torque-limited screwdriver for installation, taking guesswork out of it. Additionally, I love the torque limited fastener that secures the thru axle, again giving a positive indication that the bike is secure per the product spec.
