New Product Discovery: Rhino-Rack’s Pioneer Thru Axle Bike Carrier

Tougher Than The Trail – Rhino-Rack’s Pioneer Thru Axle Bike Carrier

The experts in all things roof storage and beyond are proud to be bringing the Pioneer Thru-Axle Bike Carrier to take you from road to mountain, and everything in between. This is Rhino-Rack’s latest edition of the first bike carrier in the range specifically engineered to attach directly to their much-loved Pioneer system!

This new system is designed with strength and durability to firmly secure your bike and reduce any sway and rocking created when driving. The Pioneer Thru-Axle Bike Carrier is purpose-designed for Rhino-Rack’s Pioneer Platform. The kit comes pre-assembled with a 15x100mm thru-axle insert and they offer additional sizes available for purchase. Using your existing bike skewer and a quick-release strap to safely secure the rear tire allows for quick and easy installation, with the rear wheel carrier able to be flipped to fit on smaller trays. Moving to the front, the fork carrier can be rotated to prevent handlebars clashing with other bikes, keeping your pride and joy in tip-top condition while you drive.

Not only is the housing constructed using satin black powder-coated steel, but the inserts are also blue anodized aluminum to prevent any and all rusting. Additionally, the new Thru-Axle Bike Carrier can hold up to 37lbs on the road, and 24lbs when off-roading.

So whether you’re bringing your mountain bike for a weekend getaway, or loading a couple of bikes for the family holiday, this new Rhino-Rack attachment is perfect for transporting thru-axle bikes on your Pioneer system.

Rhino-Rack Pioneer Thru-Axle Bike Carrier MSRP: $117.00
