2012 Mini Countryman Racked Out

13 03 2013

Image

This Mini is set up to carry anything you may need.  We started with a Thule Aeroblade system composed of the 460R Rapid Podium Towers, Fitkit 4020 and a pair of 47″ Aeroblade load bars.  This system attaches to the factory installed flush mounted siderails.  Using the Aeroblade bars we are getting the highest weight capacity and the most aerodynamic option.

     To this base we added a couple of Rocky Mount Euro Pitchforks to carry the bikes.  The Euro Pitchfork mounts flush to the Aeroblade load bars and come in a whole rainbow of colors to match your ride.  The low profile design of this bike rack accommodates any style of bike you have.  If you have Thru-Axles on your fork, Rocky Mounts has you covered with the Driveshaft fork adapter.  Between the bike carriers we added the Yakima LoadWarrior to handle all the other gear you have to take along.  The LoadWarrior also has a ton of accessory options to add to it as well.  You can add the LoadWarrior Extension which will give you 18″ more space, cargo nets to hold everything down.  If you need to attach your Axe, Shovel, Hi-Lift Jack or Spare Tire there are also brackets for that.  Lights and locks are also another great add-on to the basket.

2012 Subaru WRX Whispbar Roof Rack

2 02 2012

This Brand new 2012 WRX has been outfitted with the latest and greatest from Yakima and Thule.

  

  We used the Whispbar S5 Flush Crossbar setup with the K368 Fitkit to integrate into Subaru’s preset mounting points.   This is the most aerodynamic crossbar available with virtually no wind noise.  Whispbar also uses an aluminum bar which holds up against the elements much better than steel bars, you can say good-bye to the rusted swollen bars of days past.  The result is a near factory looking rack with much higher weight rating and accessory compatibility.

 This particular car also has the Thule 92725 FlatTop 6 ski/snowboard carrier.  The Thule 92725 is capable of carrying up to 6 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards.  As well as the ski carrier you can also attach many Thule and Yakima  Bike, Boat and Cargo options.

2008 GMC ENVOY “Moosehead”

1 02 2012

This 2008 GMC Envoy is setup with the Ultimate kayak system. 

 We started by using the Thule 460 Podium footpack paired with Fitkit 3101 and 65″ Thule Load Bars to attach into the factory siderails on the Envoy. 

 From here we added a Hullavator on each side of the system.  The Hullavator is a load assist kayak rack that will lift the boats from waist height to the top of the vehicle with little effort on the users part. 

The Hullavator is capable of carrying/loading boats up to 36″ wide and 75lbs.  The Hullavator portion is easily removable when not in use as to not interfere with low clearances.  

The base system is also capable of accepting any Thule Ski, Bike or Cargo accessories as well as many Yakima and Inno products.  Just another little creation from Rack Attack

Stay tuned to see what other fun systems we have come up with.

This 2008 Ford F150 Crew Cab is outfitted with a custom Yakima Track System and LoadWarrior Cargo Basket. 

This system is installed using  track(201135) mounted to each of the bed rails.  From here we add 2 pair of Landing Pad #1s, a set of Yakima Control towers, and a pair of 66″ Yakima Round load bars.  Using this system will give you a completly adjustable, strong system to carry anything you want while leaving your bed open for storage.  The Control Tower/Landing pad combination does have a quick release feature to pull the bars  and any accessories off the vehicle in a matter of minutes when unlocked. 

 On this particular truck we added a Yakima LoadWarrior basket which will handle any gear you can throw in it.  The LoadWarrior also has a variety of accessories you can add on, from Axe/Shovel brackets and  Hi-Lift Jack mounts, to Spare Tire carriers and Light Mounts.  Any standard Yakima roofrack accessories will also mount onto this as well as many Thule and Inno products.

  This system is using our custom track (TP42) system with the Whispbar S4 Flush crossbars and FitKit K450.  These aluminum bars have a great aerodynamic shape that eliminates wind noise which used to be a huge downfall of roofracks. Being made from aluminum will also reduce corrosion and eliminate rusted bars.

Combining this bar technology with the custom track system provides you with the strongest, most versatile, and best looking system available.  The track system boasts a weight limit of 165 lbs. and a bar spread adjustable up to 40″.  Keep posted for more fun racks!!

Whispbar Roof Racks

24 10 2011

This innovative, wind tunnel-tested family of products is, simply, the quietest, most aerodynamic and fuel efficient line of roof racks in the world. As stunningly beautiful as they are sturdily built, Whispbar by Yakima products are crafted for the outdoor-minded among us with a more discerning taste.

Here at Rack Attack we were the first to get our hands on this sweet new product.  To be truthful it’s actually just new to the US market.  Whispbar is a trusted name in the rack business based in New Zealand and Rack Attack sold this line before Yakima was able to  get their hands on it.  We are happy to offer these systems now under the Yakima line,  bringing a greater amount of stock and vehicle fits to the US.

The photos above are custom applications that Rack Attack does exclusively, these can be install at any one of our locations across the US .

Whispbar can also be self installed on vehicles with clip into the door applications as well as factory rack compatible applications like the ones below.

Custom Yakima Hitch Mounted Wheelchair Carrier

16 04 2011

This idea came from a customer’s need of transporting her wheelchair, but wanted something more stable than a tray on a hitch with bungees.  We started with the Yakima Hold-up 1.25″  hitch mounted bike carrier.

We modified this by flipping the rear bike tray so that the 2 trays are facing the same direction.  Next, I removed the hook used for retaining bikes and discarded it.  The chair is secured with the ratchet straps in the wheel hoops, and 1 hook over the armrest area of the chair.  The hoops for the front wheels were folded back against the footrests and secured with a tiedown strap.  This has turned out to be an easy to use great functioning system for our customer.





Audi S4 Yakima Quick Release Rack

17 02 2011

Here we have a  2009 Audi S4 getting fitted with a Yakima base rack system. We start with two pair of Landing Pad 7′s. We then mount these directly to the sheet metal. We attach these close to the door frames adding extra hold. These kind of installs typically call for a 28″-31″ inch bar spread. By doing so, this allows you to hold Cargo Boxes, Skis and Snowboards, Bikes, and even kayaks. Before we attach the Landing Pad 7s we First insert a plus nut, allowing the Lp7 hardware to thread into your roof. We also apply silicon preventing water damage and rust.

Next we need  a set of Yakima Control Towers. This is the tower that mounts onto the Landing Pad 7s, the Yakima 48″ cross bars also attach to this tower. The paticular step needs no hardware, just a few simple measuremets to determine the over hang outside of the towers. The Control tower has a quick release feature allowing the user to remove the rack within minutes. This then leaves the mounting hardware still attached to your roof in certain locations. To prevent theft of the rack we highly recommend Four Sks Lock Cores.

VW GTI Custom Thule Roof Rack

12 02 2011

This 2008 Volkswagen GTI 3-door is outfitted with a custom track system using Thule components.  We started by attaching  a Thule 54″ Track running front to back on the roof, we went as far to the sides as possible to make for a stonger system. 

After installing the track on the roof, we inserted the TK1 Tracker Footpack.  This will be the base in which  tower will install to.  We adjusted the TK1 to provide us with a 31″ bar spread to accomodate skis and snowboards.  We also centered them in the track to make for level bars.  After the TK1 is tightened we proceeded to attach the 430 Tracker II towers to a pair of LB50 50″ Thule load bars and mount on the previously installed TK1s.  

Next we added the 91726 Universal Pull Top ski carrier to accomadate 6 pair of skis or 4 snowboards.  For the final step we added the 544 4-pack of  Thule lock cores to make the whole system secure.

  The finished product is a very stong and versatile system to carry any load you need to.  The tracks will provide a higher weight limit as well as allowing to adjust your bars front to back for various accessories and loads.   This will also allow for  bike carriers, cargo boxes, and boat carriers.
