SportRack Racks & Accessories
SportRack, of Granby, Quebec, Canada, is a premier manufacturer of multi-sport roof rack systems and accessories, hitch-mounted products, cargo boxes, and trunk-mounted racks. The company first began manufacturing ski racks for the automotive industry in 1980, and today they are part of the Thule load carrying systems empire. Like their parent company, SportRack offers a wide range of solutions for transporting your gear, safely and easily. And as our customers say in their reviews, SportRack delivers all this at a great value.
But just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean that you have to settle for a bare bones carrier that’s difficult to use and install. For example, unlike some premium carriers, most SportRack roof mounted bike, watercraft, and cargo carriers have a simplified mounting system that enables them to be installed to most OEM and aftermarket crossbars without the need for tools. All SportRack hitch mounted bike carriers tilt down for access to the rear of the vehicle, a feature usually found only on expensive carriers. Many hitch mounted carriers also include “no wobble” threaded hitch pins and bike cradles with anti-sway blocks, features designed to minimize bike movement for protection, and again, usually only found on more costly carriers.

However, SportRack hasn’t neglected those who want only the basic necessities. Outdoor recreation can be an expensive hobby requiring a lot of gear, especially watersports with the cost of the canoe or kayak. If your budget hasn’t left much for transporting your boat, SportRack has you covered with the Standard and Deluxe canoe and kayak carriers. The heart of these carriers are durable closed cell foam blocks that feature a non-skid surface on one side to use on a bare roof, with cutouts for crossbars if you have a roof rack. These foam blocks come in sizes to fit just about all size watercraft, and their strong enough for support while being gentle to the watercraft and vehicle finish.
Accessories like locks, tie-downs, and adapters are always needed, and unfortunately missing from some carrier manufacturers’ product lines, but not SportRack. Have an unconventional bike frame to mount on a hanging style bike carrier? SportRack has the Alternative Bike Adapter that will enable you to carry any style bike. Need a place to store your bikes that takes up very little room? SportRack has the Universal 2 Bike Stacker that adjusts to fit any style bikes and is freestanding, so it doesn’t have to be secured to the wall. Whatever kind of outdoor activity you’re into, SportRack has the accessories you need.
The product was very good quality, just wasn't what I needed. Be careful when buying a universal cargo box as this product did not fit the Thule cross bar system installed on a Mazda CX-9! Returned to CARiD which was an easy process. Thanks.
I live in a small studio apartment and have a large Cruiser. Since the bike is so heavy, I really did not want to mount anything to the wall (since it's rented!) and the SportRack totally eliminated the problem. It was fairly easy to put together and it's very sturdy.
I've used this rack on one long road trip and several weekend trips including a bit of off-roading. The rack works great and keeps the bikes secure even over rough terrain. The bolt-style hitch pin may seem like a pain but it contributes a lot to the stability - without it you'd need to add a separate stabilizer to get the same level of support for the bikes. For security, I just run a cable lock thru the safety chain loop on my hitch - no need for a locking hitch pin.
I have to start by saying I am very pleased with this bike rack. It's sturdy, but won't scuff or scratch your car. It performs much better that I expected. When on the road, my bike doesn't move an inch. I haven't tried it with multiple bikes yet, but it seems like it would handle the extras as well.
Our garage was being overrun by bicycles belonging to my son and his friends. When this rack arrived, I had it assembled in about ten minutes, and now the garage clutter is much reduced. It's easy to use and holds everything we've put on it so far (including a Razor scooter and a unicycle). Solid and stable.
We purchased this bike rack over a year ago and we loved it from the first day we used it. It's very user-friendly for making adjustments to fit the bikes. We have had four adult bikes on this rack and not one of them has ever touched each other even on an 8-hour trip. We love that the bikes are not hanging but rather supported by the wheels of the bike. The rack is easy to mount and unmount from your vehicle. However, the rack is a little on the heavy side for a women to mount by herself. For storage the rack folds up and can be placed against your garage wall. We highly recommend this bike rack.
