Yakima 48" Round Crossbars
Steve Cole and Don Banducci are no physicists, but they do know that round structures are stronger than square ones. That's why Yakima crossbars are round. Another benefit is the majority of our top-mounted racks will also fit square bars. The crossbars attach to towers and on some fits car specific landing pads, providing stability to your roof rack and support the sport-specific mounts that carry your gear. The width of your crossbars also determines how much stuff you can carry, the wider the rack, the more you can put on your roof.
