We love the great outdoors just as much as you. Whether you're a cyclist, kayaker, snowboarder, skier, hunter, camper or you name it, we have the rack or carrier for you. The hard part is selecting the right one to suit your needs, vehicle, and budget.
There are four main types of racks - roof, back, trailer hitch, and cargo carriers.

Roof Racks

Roof racks are mounted on 2 crossbars on the roof of your vehicle. Many cars and SUVs are already equipped with crossbars, but we can install them if needed. Many people choose roof racks because of their versatility. Simply mount an additional rack for bikes, kayaks, skis, snowboards, or a roof basket or transport box (hard or soft) for whatever your outdoor hobbies require.


The benefits of a roof rack include:

  • Versatile to handle a range of racks and carriers
  • Stable
  • Installation doesn't damage vehicle paint
  • Transferable from one vehicle to another
  • Locks included
  • Does not interfere with rear visibility

Back Racks (Trucks Only)

Back racks protect the cab of your pick-up truck, as well as keep your gear safe and organized. Whether you want to mount toolboxes, cargo, ladders, signal lights or antennas, we have back racks that will do the job. Most racks have a rear window protection screen consisting of heavy-duty ultra mesh.

Trunk Mount Racks (Cars Only)

Trunk mount racks install directly on the trunk of your car and allow you to transport up to 3 bikes. It's ideal for singles, couples, or small families who enjoy cycling and have a smaller vehicle. The benefits of a cargo carrier include:


  • Easy to install and store (foldable)
  • Transferable from one vehicle to another (some exceptions)
  • No wind resistance
  • Affordable
  • Does not reduce access to underground parking, garages or drive throughs
  • Easy access

Trailer Hitch Racks

Trailer hitch racks are ideal for longer journeys and anyone who wants versatility and convenience. These racks can handle larger loads (up to 5 bikes at a time) and different types of gear, such as bikes, skis, snowboards, etc.
Keep in mind that these racks require a trailer hitch, so if you need to tow a trailer as well as carry bikes, for instance, you may need a roof rack as well. The benefits of a trailer hitch rack include:

  • Versatile for bikes and skis and baskets for transporting boxes or bags
  • Very stable
  • Safer for longer trips
  • Ease of installation
  • Convenient for vehicles whose roofs are difficult to access, such as SUVs or vans
  • Lockable
  • Easy to store
  • Tilts to allow access to trunk or hatchback
  • Does not reduce access to underground parking, garages, or drive-throughs
