Jetstream photo #1JetStream

Rack N Road is proud to introduce and be part of the new Yakima StreamLine system. The new JetSteam uses the JetFlow system, an ultra-high performance aluminum teardrop shape that is not only strong but also quiet and aerodynamic. To ensure a quiet drive on those long road trips, these bars include a WindRidge spec designed to minimize drag and wind noise. The JetStream comes with a T-slot that allows gear to be easily and snugly secured to the bars, further reducing wind noise. Lastly, Yakima increased the weight carrying capacity with added support on the inside of the JetStream, improving the overall strength of the crossbars.

While not top of the line like Yakima’s JetStream, the Corebar puts a lot on the table! The Corebar has an unbeatable price for the quality. Priced at $119 for a pair of Corebars, you save $80 over the JetStream. The Corebar’s similar style to the Jestream means that wind noise and drag are comparably quiet. The steel Corebar can even hold 60lbs over the lightweight JetStream, perfect for heavier gear or adding even more weight to a cargo box for a camping trip.

Accessories and Installation

Now, whats great about both sets of these bars is what can be put up on them! Being a Yakima product there are plenty of attachments that these bars can hold whether that be a kayak rack, winter racks, a bike rack or even cargo carriers. The Corebar and the Jetstream allow a ton of flexibility and will not limit your choice of accessories.

Be sure to also ask us about our custom installation if you want a permanent rack solution. We would be more than happy to walk you through the perks and benefits of having a rack that is put on landing pads instead of a temporary clip in system through the doors. Most of our locations have these custom mounts on hand, ready for a quick installation to get you on the road for that end of summer vacation.
