Yakima SkyBox-CARBONITE Luggage boxes

The Yakima SkyBox-CARBONITE is a great range of boxes that have top end features, a smart 'carbonite' finish at an excellent price. They SkyBox-CARBONITE feature a smart aerodynamic shape for low drag. They fit to most cross bar profiles with a quick fit clamping system allowing easy attachment to your roof racks. The boxes have  a 3 point locking system which operates from a single central key.

A really good feature of these boxes is the reinforcing added to the underside of the lid. This allows for a more structural shell which will not collapse under the weight of any snowfall when parked up at the ski slopes.
