The Downshift Plus Roof Mount Bike Rack is aptly named because it’s made for people on the move. When you want to get your bike to the best riding areas, you don’t want to waste time with a carrier that’s complicated and time consuming to mount and load. The Downshift is the ideal carrier for people on the go because its universal mounting system enables you to quickly and easily install it to most factory and aftermarket racks with crossbars up to 3.5” in diameter, no tools required. The Downshift’s quick-release front skewer makes bike loading a breeze. Just pop off your front wheel and place the front fork dropouts in the skewer. Tighten the skewer, secure the rear wheel to the tray with the included adjustable strap, and you’re on your way!

A roof carrier protects your bike from road dirt better than hitch or trunk racks. And the stable and secure roof rack attachment also gives you the versatility to add other accessories to the base rack.

As Expected
Rack was easy to put on with help from YouTube. Materials all seem to be of good quality. Used twice already to carry two 45 pound kayaks. So far, so good. Bargain priced and rack does what it claimed. Thanks!

Great Economy Roof Rack
Looks like an entry level unit, good enough to haul around equipment. Can't ask for more at this price point. Wish that it would be easier to mount - instead of a screw down system, maybe like a clamping system to make it easier to put on and off.
