I love Yakima products. I have had them on my cars for 20 years. I currently have crossbars, bike, kayak, and a carrier box from Yakima. I had an older Powderhound that served me well for years. I recently bought the new Powderhound to replace my old one which finally gave out. The racks still work, just don't lock any longer. One of the things I love about Yakima products has always been the ease of installing on my Yakima roof rack. That's the reason to purchase the cross bars. The ski racks have changed their mounting design. It is a more universal design now. I always liked the old style with the rounds or if you didn't have cross bars, you purchased the Mighty Mounts. With the new racks, you are given a much more complex mount. Don't get me wrong, it is sturdy and very secure, but it is so much more of a pain to put on your car. Before, I could throw my ski racks on my car in about 5 minutes with no tools. Now, I need an Allen wrench and about 15 minutes. If Yakima is trying to make it more universal, that is great. Just come up with a better universal fit system. It has to be cheaper to include a couple of different old style mounts than this new system. All that said, I would still buy this rack again. I will just be using my old round mounts from now on with it. They will still work with this rack. Best rack for the money by far.
