Yakima Highlite Hitch Rack and Skybox Lopro 15 Cargo box + Honda Accord Crosstour = Love at first sight.
Every now and then we come across a rack and car that were just made to be together. The Honda Crosstour is a combination of the speed and style you want in a Sedan/Sport Utility vehicle while giving enough space inside to be practical. Something similar can be said about the Yakima Highlite.
The Aluminum and Steel constructed Highlite was just released in the last year and weighs under 20 pounds, making it one of the lightest weight hitch mounted bike racks on the market. A nice thing about the Highlite is even though its light in weight its no lightweight, it can still carry as much weight as any similar sized rack out there. Thanks to its ant like weight and strength on a class 1 hitch you can carry 3 bikes opposed to the usual 2, Wowzers! The feathery weight of the Highlite makes it struggle-free and effortless (seriously who wants to work) to remove from the vehicle. Even your tech-dinosaur grandparents can figure this rack out, on the base of the rack there is a locking knob (shown above) which secures the rack as you tighten it, making the Highlite tool free. The Highlite comes in 2 and 3 bike models as well as a choice between white (The first and only White hitch rack, Pioneering!) and silver colors. The Highlite doesn’t even care what type of car you drive, big or small it comes ready for both 1 1/4 and 2 inch hitches making it non-biased and versatile. With a built in cable bike lock, you can sit and drink that pre-ride latte stress-free.
If you’re looking for a simple, secure and easy to use bike rack look no further then the Yakima Highlite, they considered everything making this rack, even adding two bottle openers on the arms for that after ride sparkling water drink.
