Yakima has a history of making bold moves in the name of new horizons. We started as a small machine shop in our namesake city in Washington state. Then in 1979, Steve Cole and Don Banducci, hardcore kayakers and cyclists, acquired the company. By 1984, they put Yakima on the map at the Summer Olympics, decking out every race vehicle with original aerodynamic fairings. For nearly four decades, our trusted solutions have transformed the way people travel. We’re leaders in our category, packing heritage, safety, design sensibility, and street smarts into every product.
