Yakima pulled out all the stops to create their KingJoe Pro trunk rack. Both the 2- and 3-bike model fit most vehicles in a snap thanks to six easy-to-adjust straps with padded buckles. It even has cushioned feet that stabilize the rack and protect your car. For lightning-fast installation/removal, the KingJoe Pro utilizes Yakima's QuickTrigger system that allows for simple, precise adjustments so you can get a perfect fit on your vehicle. What's more, its narrow-set arms with StableCradles let you carry nearly any style of bicycle and they fold away when not in use for the ultimate in traveling convenience!

I am newer to cycling, my wife and I went to the local store and picked up a couple of Trek FX bikes. We figured we would use them to get out of the house from time to time and ride on the local trails. I needed a way to get the bikes home and around town so the very helpful staff recommended the Yakima super joe pro. I went for the 3 bike version in case a friend or family memeber wanted to come along. Wow I'm impressed with how easy it is to install and remove and how sturdy it is with 3 bikes on it. It was a little tricky getting all the pedals and handlebars aligned with 3 bikes but in under 10 mins the rack was installed on our car and all 3 bikes were safetly stowed and ready for our trip. The rack and bikes stay safetly attached to the vehicle, I didn't notice any movement of the bikes or rack. This has included highway speeds, gravel drives and everything in between. Only had the bikes and rack about 2 weeks but the quality seems very good. Lastly I am very happy I went with this rack over another option as this has rubber straps which hold the bikes in place very well. The other model we looked at had plastic straps and I fear they would have let the bikes move around a bit more. Happy with my purchase on the truck rack.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
