It’s almost Halloween, which means that the annual SEMA show in Las Vegas is a few days away. Expect the usual onslaught of news to hit next week. Our friends at Yakima (booth 34101) jumped the gun and showed us their new products that will be at SEMA this year. Those include:

  • HD Truck Rack Collection – three pickup truck rack options,
  • Hangover – vertical bike rack,
  • EasyRider – lightweight trailer that carries up to 500 lbs of gear,
  • SkyRise HD – new more rugged version of Yakima’s popular rooftop tent.

Let’s take a closer look.

OverHaul HD Truck Rack
The height-adjustable OverHaul HD is designed for heavy loads – 500 lbs. on-road and 300 lbs. off-road. The crossbar height can easily be adjusted from 19 to 30 inches: way up for long loads to go over the cab; down low to get the rack and load down out of the wind. It works with tonneau covers, too. The system is easy to take on and off the truck, so the truck is only racked up when needed. MSRP: $700

OutPost HD Truck Rack
Designed to handle heavy loads on backcountry terrain, the non-adjustable OutPost HD is built for rugged overland adventures. The mid-height design provides a low center of gravity, easy accessibility to gear, and 500lb on-road carrying capacity, 300lbs off-road. MSRP: $500

BedRock HD Truck Rack
BedRock HD is a low-profile design with 300 lb. on-road and 180 lb. off-road capacities. It allows for an aerodynamic system that carries bikes, skis, kayaks, or cargo boxes above the bed while preserving capacity underneath. There are tie-down points and T-slot accessory attachment capability. MSRP: $240
HD Crossbars
Yakima’s burliest crossbar ever, designed for heavy loads, rugged terrain, and maximum utility. The aluminum bars are light and strong, with integrated tie-down points, and T-slot attachment points. Available in multiple sizes, from 55” to 78”. MSRP: $249

HD Truck Accessories
The new collection of HD accessories allows truck owners to customize and expand their racks even further: 

  • Recovery Track Mount ($109);
  • Rotopax Mounting Kit ($29);
  • SideBar, Short Bed ($219);
  • SideBar, Long Bed ($269);
  • Bed Track Kit 1 ($110);
  • Tonneau Kit 1 ($110);
  • HD Hook Straps ($39);
  • Wear Strip ($29);
  • LoadStop T-slot ($79),
  • EyeBolts ($29);
  • LadderRoller ($89)

The HangOver safely hauls up to six mountain bikes. Perfect for group rides, big families and tour operators, the HangOver’s vertical orientation carries more bikes in less space, and its easy-to-operate tilt mechanism makes accessing the tailgate easy. Available in four- and six-bike capacities, the HangOver holds bikes with a suspension fork. Soft padding protects the fork’s finish, and rotating wheel cups accommodate bikes with a variety of wheelbases. The HitchLock secures the rack to the vehicle. MSRP: $799 (6-bike); $599 (4-bike)

SkyRise HD Tent
The SkyRise HD is the SkyRide tent with roomier geometry, improved four-season weather protection, burlier floor, and enhanced durability. Expanded windows, doors, and skylights that provide grander views and better ventilation. The tent body is made from a thicker fabric. Floor-mounted d-rings and guy-points make it easier to hang gear and guy-out the tent. A new ladder makes it easier to adjust for various vehicle heights. MSRP: $1749 (SkyRise HD Small), $2199 (SkyRise HD Medium)

The EasyRider is a multi-sport trailer. With two levels and 500 lbs. of carrying capacity, the EasyRider hauls up to three kayaks up top, with room underneath for coolers and gear. But its strong cross-bars accept any Yakima gear mount. It is also the perfect base for the SkyRise rooftop tent, creating an instant travel trailer. The aluminum construction makes it strong and light. So light that it can be used as a handcart. Storage is easy – just fold in the tongue and roll it out of the way. MSRP: $2,999

Skinny Warrior
SkinnyWarrior, a version of the popular LoadWarrior, is a new narrow, cargo basket. Its design allows roof rack space for bikes or boards. Accessories include a 16-inch extension ($119) and the StretchNet ($39). MSRP: $349
