The Backrider is a sturdy trunk mount bike carrier that can carry up to 2, or up to 3 bikes with a maximum weight of 132 lbs. It mounts quickly and easily to most trunks and hatches, and includes features you may not find on other carriers in this price range. For example, bike frames are supported by 2 arms in soft rubber cradles that almost completely surround the frame, not mere notches that you find on some carriers. These ample cradles prevent damaging the tube or marring the finish. Soft but strong rubber straps secure the bike to the cradles, unlike some carriers that rely on one long strap that has to be wrapped around all the frame supports.
Installation is a snap thanks to the hub mounting system. It allows you to quickly adjust the rack to suit the shape of most trunks and hatches, and also allows the carrier to be folded flat when not in use, for convenient storage. The Backrider is equipped with soft, cushioned pads so it won’t damage the finish on the trunk or hatch. Once it’s adjusted, the carrier is securely attached to the vehicle with 6 sturdy adjustable straps, with coated hooks to prevent damage.
The Backrider Trunk Mount Bike Carrier comes with instructions detailing installation of the carrier, and mounting bikes on the carrier. It’s backed by a limited lifetime warranty, which applies to the original purchaser of the product, and warrants the product against manufacturer’s defects in materials or workmanship.70.56Brand: SportRack Part Number: SR3141 UPC: 770527902810
