Yakima’s new Rocketbox Pro gets redesigned to pack flatter so it’s UPS-able rather than having to go via freight, which should lower the landed cost by about $20-$40 for the consumer. the new design nests the lid inside the bottom, so they come smaller…which also means they take up less space in the shop.
The back end was reshaped allow hatchbacks to open fully without hitting the box. They also reworked the mechanisms to make assembly brain-free. MSRP ranges from $359 to $439 depending on size, they offer 11, 12 and 14 cubic feet models.
Their recent purchase of Whispbar has made the line their premiere roof rack option. Check out what makes it unique after the break…
The aero shape has a small lip on the front to create turbulence and smooth the air flow over the bar. The rubber section inside simply squishes down when you insert a tray or mount, keeping it fully intact when you remove any attachments. Their original designs required cutting.
The bars ends work with all roof attachments, making it smooth and easy to switch lowers without having to buy an entirely new mount. It can run flush for a stock look or extend beyond the edges for more capacity, all with the same lowers.
