More and more vehicles these days are rolling off the assembly line with convenient integrated fixed mount points on the roof, which are threaded inserts located in specific areas, often hidden under trap doors or molding strips or along flush side rails, designed for attachment of a factory or aftermarket roof rack system. The Yakima SkyLine complete roof rack system attaches to these fixed points using specific Yakima Landing Pads (yes, good ol’ Yakima Landing Pads) enabling the most secure and integrated attachment of any style crossbar system, and because the mounting points are defined, no measuring is required so installation couldn’t be more straight-forward. Aside from attaching to fixed points, the Yakima SkyLine system can also be mounted to roof mounted track systems using Yakima Landing Pads #1, and can be mounted permanently to fiberglass surfaces such as camper shells, truck caps, and tonneau covers using Yakima Landing Pads #6, and mounted permanently to sheet metal roofs using Yakima Landing Pads #7. Finally, the Yakima SkyLine Towers can be attached to outdoor-centric vehicles with funky roof racks such as the Subaru Outback and Honda CR-V using Yakima Landing Pads specific to the respective funky vehicle. The Yakima SkyLine roof rack rack system includes a set of four Yakima SkyLine Towers, one or two sets of vehicle specific Yakima Landing Pads (depending on the specific Landing Pads, some are sold in pairs requiring two sets, others are sold in sets of four), and your choice of a pair of Yakima CoreBar steel aero bars, Yakima RoundBars with required Roundbar SL Adapters, or the Yakima JetStream aluminum T-slot equipped aero bars in black or silver (+$76). The Yakima SkyLine towers are engineered with features designed to make installation as easy as possible while offering the best possible fit to today’s modern vehicles. When installed correctly, the Yakima SkyLine crossbar system will not damage the vehicle and will safely and securely transport up to 220 lbs** of gear (**depending on vehicle and when using CoreBar aero bars -- max load when using JetStream aero bars or RoundBars is 165 lbs).
  • Complete roof mount crossbar system for vehicles with fixed mount points, track systems, unique factory racks (Subaru Outback and Honda CR-V), and for custom installation to sheet metal rooftops and fiberglass surfaces such as truck caps, camper shells, and tonneau covers (custom installation requires drilling)

  • Complete Yakima SkyLine System includes set of four Yakima SkyLine Towers, a pair of Yakima crossbars, and depending on the vehicle, one or two sets of Yakima Landing Pads (some Landing Pads are sold in pairs, others are sold in sets of four)

Best rack system
September 15, 2016
I own the Yakima load warrior cargo basket with extension, kayak stackers, Double down bike rack and wanted to upgrade my oem roof rails on my Honda Element for more space on the roof. The skyline rack with 80" crossbars was exactly what I needed . install and uninstalling is super simple. Plus I can use my sks locks for all my Yakima gear with one key. And I must say this was the third Yakima product I've ordered from ORS Tacks and they have awesome customer service and super fast FREE shipping.
Pros:
Super easy installation and uninstalling. Locks with SKS locks. Plenty of room depending on size of crossbars Still looks OEM on my vehicle. GREAT QUALITY! Fast shipping and best price through ORS Racks!
Cons:
The only con I can find with any of my Yakima gear is price. But your paying for quality.

Great Product; Outstanding ORS Customer Service!!!
July 22, 2016
Yakima Skyline roof rack installed easily; fit and finish excellent; very sturdy and solid; very nice looking. Installed on 1999 Jeep Cherokee for transporting two Bass Pro Ascend kayaks.....side-by-side, hulls up. System consisted of Landing Pad #2 (front and rear, Skyline towers, and black 70" Jetstream bars. Bars extend about 12" beyond outside of towers in order to handle 60" total kayak width. Note, the 70" dimension does not include the two bar end caps which add 1" each for a total 72" overall installed width. Added a Yakima SKS lock core at each tower for security. Using NRS Barrito 8mm thick neoprene crossbar pads to protect crossbars and kayaks, Be sure to check out these pads!!!! Yakima does not offer accessories to use with the T-slot in the top of the Jetstream bars. I am making load stops and other accessories of my own design to take advantage of this feature.....T-slots are mature technology, not rocket science....but, I am an engineer. Adding additional sets of Landing pads on my other several Jeep Cherokees will allow quick switching of towers/crossbars between all vehicles for varied uses.....farm, hunting, off-roading, city and Pavement Princess.......quick, easy interchange.
Pros:
Another in a long string of great experiences with ORS Customer Service Order assistance....and FAST shipping and great status communication!!! Yakima roof rack is solid, attractive, excellent fit/finish; easy installation. high application flexibility, easy removal between outings; quiet when empty (Yakima can't be responsible for your loads' aerodynamic inefficiency!!), Offers "anticipation" of innovative load attachment via T-slot feature, BUT...see CON below.
Cons:
somewhat expensive; no T-slot accessories available to date; awkward access to T-slots (must use small screwdeiver to pry off end cap.....those will break soon.....Thule end caps easily swivel open for T-slot access); would prefer matte finish on Skyline towers and Jetstream end caps instead of shiny finish (looks cheap) to match landing pads finish and hide use scratches. "Sliding Security Doors" on bottom of Skyline towers intended to conceal attachment screws for security are a poor design as they don't easily move into protective position. Caution with Landing Pad #2 instructions. They advise : "....do not to tighten mounting fasteners just yet"....can be done later. However, instructions never instruct you to finish the tightening procedure, and do not advise torque spec. Instructions referenced alegedly supplied Allen wrench for tightening landing pads mounting screws, but was not included. The calibrated torque driver supplied with the towers does not fit the landing pad fasteners. Call to Yakima Customer Tech Support offered no assistance and were indifferent to inquiry....just said "tighten"...is that 100lb girly or 300lb Bubba tight??? And, what about forgetting to finish tightening procedure.....imagine a rack coming loose at speed!!!!

Nice looking Racks
June 16, 2017
The landing pads (#19) were extremely difficult to put on my 2016 Honda Pilot. Its seems as though the holes did not line up (my old system went on in minutes, this set of landing pads took almost 2 hours). I believe Yakima has some more fine tuning to do on the pads. The rest of the system is great and looks great once installed.
Pros:
Looks great and great concept to be able to take off in seconds.
Cons:
The landing pads were extremely difficult to install. The old yakima system on my old vehicle was simple compared to this one.

Best racks
May 13, 2017
I love these racks for their efficiency and ease of use. The base fits in to the tracks on the roof of my car, so they don’t wrap around through the window opening. The four bases were easy to attach, as I had pre-existing holes in the tracks in the roof. The bars detach so they don’t have to be left on the car all of the time. There are covers for the base, too, when the bars are not in use. They are sturdy and trustworthy and I am able to attach J bars as well. I would recommend these to anyone.
Pros:
Detachable bars Base fits in tracks in roof.
