For roof rack users, it’s arguably not even a matter of if, but when. When an audible ‘crunch’ alerts you to the fact that you’ve just damaged or destroyed your expensive bike by driving it into a garage or drive-thru. What if you could avoid this situation entirely? Raacked aims to do just that with their wireless, ultrasonic alarm system – alerting you before that costly impact happens.
Raacked Roof Rack Alarm System
Do you own a bike or gear roof rack? Wouldn’t it be nice to protect that investment with a motion-sensing alarm? Raacked says that their weatherproof system fits on most roof racks and will detect obstructions up to 12 feet away.
It works by sending out ultrasonic waves to detect objects, and then communicates wirelessly to the receiver, which emits a series of beeps. The proximity sensor will let you know when an obstruction approaches from front or behind. Check out this video to see it in action…
The only thing we’re wondering is – how did such a good idea take so long for someone to create? Raacked began as a Kickstarter campaign and pricing isn’t yet available. If you’d like to stay up-to-date or pre-order one, check out the link below to sign up for their newsletter and receive updates.
