Hi-Ride Carrier (2-bike)

When it comes to carrying bikes, our Hi-Ride carrier system has set the standard for over 10 years as the world’s safest, simplest and toughest bike rack ever. This new one is at least 5,000 times better though… seriously. Read on to see why. And it’s red… so it must be good!

Carriers & Racks on caravans & campers etc.

There’s nothing better than taking your bikes with you when you’re off in the van, camper or motorhome. Unfortunately it’s also one of the hardest things to organize properly… until now.

A ONE-TIME SPECIAL on a brand new Hi-Ride 2-bike carrier.

We sent a rack to Bicycling Australia magazine in Port Kembla (NSW) so they could photograph it for their magazine (it’s the exact rack that
you see in this photo), but now it’s stuck there!

So if someone is willing to pick it up from Wentworth St in Port Kembla, they can have themselves a $448 Hi-Ride for $300.
First to order and pay gets it. Call (03) 9466 2553 or email mail@gripsport.com.au

DID YOU KNOW

In most cases (yes… most cases) it’s incredibly risky and dangerous to carry bicycles on the rear of a caravan or camper? If you don’t believe us, just ask around (van manufacturers, forums and users etc), or just think back to the last time you saw bikes bouncing around on the back of a van. That movement is NOT okay… it’s the carrier trying to rip itself free and kill the family traveling behind you. Makes you think, doesn’t it.

But if you want to carry bikes on a caravan, let us show you how to do it easily and safely. Just ask us… email or call.

This is our brand new Hi-Ride carrier model…the “Tilty”

And yep, it’s a really stupid name for a bike rack, but we’re sticking with it… A/ because it’s fun… B/ because we can… and C/ because it’s a bloody “Tilty”, so what else were we going to call it?

You see, unlike the “hinged” carriers that are out there on the market, the Tilty does NOT hinge down from the tow bar. It also does NOT force you to your knees to operate awkward latches and remove (then struggle to re-fit) a whole bunch of locking pins. Most importantly though, it does NOT drop your bikes onto the ground, it does NOT leave you with a dirty great weight to lift back up (and then hold in position while you crouch down to reinsert locking pins etc) and it most definitely does NOT rely on a “hinge” point for the carrier’s structural integrity.

What the Tilty DOES do though, is shift your bikes from fully upright, to tilted way back… in just seconds. It also keeps your bikes well clear of the ground while still giving you access into the rear of your vehicle. And on top of that… it’s all balanced so perfectly that you can tilt the bikes back into their upright position with two fingers and have the whole thing secured and ready to drive off in just seconds.

So are you getting a picture of the differences between a hinged bike rack and a Tilty? If not, have a look at our little video… then try and tell us you don’t want one. Go on… we dare you.

And the best news of all? You can buy one of these right NOW.

The one in the video above is just a prototype… without zinc plating or powder coating and it’s just there to show people what it does.

But the real ones… the “pretty” ones, are on the shelves and ready to go right now… we just haven’t had time to photograph and video those “pretty” ones yet (they look and perform exactly like our standard Hi-Ride… only they “tilt” as well).

Price for this great bit of kit is $598 and delivery anywhere in Australia (if wanted, but you’re welcome to pickup) is a flat-rate $50.

Get in quick though… our first production run sold out quickly.

A death in the family

Our sympathies go out to Brian after the sudden death this morning of a close family member.
Brian is responsible for all the traditional wet-spray paint work here at GripSport, but has quite rightly “downed tools” to be with his family.
Our thoughts are with you, Mate. See you in the new year.
