Economical 3-Bike Transport on the Trunk or Hatchback of Most Vehicles
The SportRack SR3162 3-Bike Strap Bike Carrier is an economical bike transport option allowing for stowage of bicycles directly on the trunks of most small to medium sized vehicles, as well as some small hatchbacks.
The carrier utilizes a simple, but effective frame that is designed to be cinched snugly against the exterior of vehicles, holding it immobile. The frame is easily adjustable to the contours of compatible vehicles by way of a knob-based quick hub mounting system. When properly adjusted, the adjustment knobs are locked into place and four raised foam padded elements on the frame are pulled into direct contact with vehicle exteriors using six adjustable straps. This levels the the bike arms, creating a stable platform to hang bicycle from. The six straps are integrated into the carrier, and have hooks at their ends that attach to seams along trunks and hatchbacks without causing damage.
The top tube of bicycles contact the carrier along the soft rubberized cradles that are integrated into the carrier’s bike arms. Prior to vehicle movement, bikes are further secured to bike arms, the carrier frame and each other if necessary by additional straps. When the carrier is not in use, the folding mechanism that allows to to fit the contours of vehicle exteriors allows it to fold flat for easy storage.
