Yakima HoldUp EVO 2 Bike Hitch-Mount Rack

The HoldUp EVO is the new version of the best selling HoldUp, one of the strongest, most versatile and best designed bike racks available. This new version has been redesigned with an easy access KickStart foot pedal tilt mechanism which makes lowering and raising the rack a cinch, even with bikes loaded. It also now features Yakima's SpeedKnob for mounting the rack to your hitch, again making the job easier than ever before.

It comes with tray adjustability, meaning less bike-to-bike interference. Plus its StrongArm system allows for no frame contact when securing your bikes, making it a great choice for carbon frame bikes or anyone who has concerns about damage in transit. It's also quite a good looking bike carrier, with nice finishes and high-quality materials. 

Out of the box the HoldUp EVO carries two bikes, and it can be extended to accommodate four bikes with the optional HoldUp EVO +2.  

Versatility is a strong point, it takes nearly all bikes with 20inch to 29inch wheels and almost any size or shape of frame. It has moveable trays to adjust bike positions, and the StrongArm design also avoids any frame contact by securing just the front wheel. Maximum weight limit is 23kgs per bike, with a maximum wheelbase of 122cm, and 4.5 inch maximum tyre width. The impressive weight capacity also makes the HoldUp EVO capable of carrying E-bikes under 23kg, if your bike is heavier please see the original HoldUp, which has a higher weight capacity of 27kg per bike.

The HoldUp EVO folds flat against your vehicle when not in use and comes with integrated locks for both the carrier and bikes, which can be matched to other Yakima products for single key convenience. The 67cm cable locks for your bikes also retract neatly into the carrier after use.

It comes out of the box requiring very minimal assembly so you can be out on the trails even quicker, installation is a 25 minute job and all necessary tools are included. Please refer to the video and fitting instructions below for further details.

This new version is more expensive than its predecessor, yet we think it's worth the money, the improvements make one of the best quality and strongest racks available even better, plus it's covered by Yakima's lifetime warranty.  

If you'd like to learn more about the HoldUp EVO you can contact us anytime with your questions, or read this independent review of the Yakima HoldUp EVO, discussing both its strengths and weaknesses.

This carrier suits 50mm (2 inch) receivers only, check to see if it will fit your vehicle using the Yakima Hitch Fitting Guide below.
