Saris bike racks for cyclists
Saris produce many bike racks for your vehicles, roof, rear and hitch and also Kool Rack, Traps and Tracks for trucks. They also make sidewalk racks and CycleOps, which are bike trainers and indoor stationary bikes.
If you are buying a Saris roof rack system you have to start with the load bars, once you have these you can fit bike mounts, ski mounts, watersport mounts or a cargo box.
The bike mounts are either short or long tray fork mounts, which are lockable or non-lockable or also they have an upright carrier for solo or tandem bikes which takes the bikes with both wheels in place.
Many rear racks to choose
Saris have three ranges of rear racks, Bones, Guardian and Sentinel.
The Bones rear rack is not only a rear rack it is a work of art, a stylish, stable and secure rack for up to three bikes. The Guardian rear rack more simply designed but very practical and convenient.
The Saris Sentinel rack is easy to fit, adjustable to fit most hatchbacks, trunks or vans, the rack holds up to three bikes separately and firmly and protects your vehicle’s finish.
Hitch a ride for your bike
The Cycle-On hitch racks are easy to use, it fits well away from the car not to cause any damage and the bikes sit on the wheel trays and then clamped securely to the ratchet arms, there are the Cycle-On and the Cycle-On Pro with one or two bike add-ons.
The T-Rax range is a top bike clamping hitch rack; they accommodate 2 to 5 bikes and have a tilt bracket for stability and ease of use. There is also the Sport and the Pro, which are lockable and very protective for your bike and car.
