On development: 5- and 6-bike vertical transport racks for giant group rides

RubiconEP Corel 4-Bike Rack.

Group rides are again! Nicely, no less than judging by the newest bike racks Yakima and RubiconEP are exhibiting up at Sea Otter this week.

RubiconEP claims that their 5-Bike Coral Bike Rack is “one of many strongest, lightest and most useful upright bicycle racks ever provided.” It’s rated to hold 5, 60lb. (e-)bike, and the rack weighs 72lbs. The rack folds down for automobile use and makes it straightforward to load and unload the bike on the trailhead. The RubiconEP provides 2-, 4-, and 5-bike variations priced at $999, $1,499, and $1,699, in a wide range of shade finishes.

Yakima can also be exhibiting off a 6-bike hanging rack at Sea Otter this week known as the Hangtight 6. It is designed to carry — you guessed it — six bikes, and it prices $999. The Hangtight RubiconEP bends just like the Coral, although it is restricted to 37.5 lbs per bike, so e-bike homeowners could have to look elsewhere. The Hangtight 4 has 4 bikes and prices $799. Try each HangTight racks to be accessible from mid-November.

Lolo rack.

LoloRacks is one other firm that has been promoting 4- and 6-bike vertical bike hitch racks for just a few years now. These racks are made within the USA and value round $800.

We would not be stunned to see different manufacturers launch vertical bike racks sooner or later, a welcome change from the stand-alone, single tray bike rack development of some years in the past.
