New Yakima Ski/Snowboard Carriers

New Yakima Ski/Snowboard Carriers

New Yakima FatCat EVO, FreshTrack

Yakima is launching two new ski/snowboard carriers - the FatCat EVO and the FreshTrack. Both are available in 'large' (6 ski / 4 board) and 'small' (4 ski / 2 board) sizes. A few of the features and changes we want to point out:

FatCat EVO is an upgraded version of the Yakima FatCat. The biggest change is the increase in length - you should have no problem getting 6 pairs of fat powder skis or 4 boards on the FatCat EVO 6! Similarly the FreshTrack is an improvement on the PowderHound.

Both models have universal mounting hardware, but the FatCat EVO uses a rubberized metal band, versus the FreshTrack which uses hard plastic clamps.

The FatCat EVO 6 comes in both black and silver (silver version is more expensive. Why? We have no idea).
