Yakima Holdup Evo 2 Bike Rack

Similar to the standard Holdup, the HoldUp EVO is built to handle newer bike standards like fat tires and boost hubs, but still carries road, mountain & kids bikes with ease. It mounts to the vehicle quickly, and loads super quick and secure for long drives. The ample spacing reduces the chance for bike-to-bike interference and it holds the bike by the tyres and wheels only, no frame clamps. It’s a road trip companion for life. Holds most adult and kids bikes from 29" wheels down to 20", easily adjustable for different wheelbase lengths.


  • Install on car with no tools
  • Load bikes securely in seconds, and nothing clamps on frame of bike
  • Easy Fold up & down with external handle & foot pedal
  • Locks bikes to rack & rack to car with key
  • Spacing between bikes is generous to avoid damage in transit
  • Adaptable to 4 bikes with 2-bike add-on
