Skiing and snowboarding is more fun with friends, so don't try cramming your skis or boards inside your vehicle. Carry them on your roof rack so you can bring more friends along to the slopes. These carriers are available in models that carry up to 4 pairs of skis or 2 snowboards, and up to 6 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards. Either way, there's enough capacity for a good time. These carriers are Yakima's finest, with a sleek, low-profile, aerodynamic shape and mirror black finish that will get plenty of admiring looks at the ski lodge, and features and functionality that lesser carriers can't match.
Both FatCats include custom mounting systems for fast and easy installation. The Snap-around hardware will simplify mounting on round and square crossbars, while the new and improved SnapLock hardware straps create a secure fitment on most factory and aero crossbars. Once installed, you'll find these carriers easy to open thanks to oversize buttons that are easy to operate even with heavy ski gloves. The soft rubber padding will provide a secure hold for your snow gear without damaging the finish. And if you have the latest “fat" skis and snowboards, the DoubleJoint hinge system allows the hinges to spread slightly to accommodate your gear.
If there's not enough clearance between the carriers and your roof for snowboards or tall bindings, don't risk damaging your vehicle or equipment. The integral ski lifts drop down from the bottom of the carrier where it can be attached to the crossbar mount, and it's adjustable, so you can gain just the height you need. Yakima SKS (Same Key System) lock cores and keys are included to lock your gear to the carriers, which also locks the carriers to the crossbars.
FatCat Roof Ski and Snowboard Racks come with comprehensive, illustrated instructions and they're backed by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
