You’ve got your camping gear, riding gear, your friends, and your bikes all packed – now what to do with your cooler? If you had the new Saris SuperClamp EX 2-Bike + Cargo, it could go outside the vehicle on the new cargo platform – that could just as easily be used to transport storage bins, crates, or any other bulky item that you just don’t have room to put inside the vehicle.
Saris SuperClamp EX 2-Bike + Cargo
Unlike those poorly made cargo racks that you often see sagging off the back of vehicles on the way to Florida, the Saris version is based off of their impressively durable SuperClamp EX 4 bike rack. Only this time, instead of the two bike positions closest to the car being used for bikes, they’re replaced by a sturdy cargo tray that has a maximum cargo weight of 120lbs. That’s in addition to two 35lb bikes. Already have a SuperClamp rack but want to carry some cargo? The Cargo Accessory will be sold as just the tray for $299 and it can be installed on any Saris SuperClamp or Freedom 4 bike hitch rack.
The rack itself hasn’t changed much, other than gaining 3″ in length to fit longer wheel base mountain bikes, and will fit anything from road bikes to fat bikes. The rack’s graphics and touch points have also been blacked out, removing all of the yellow (with the exception of a few removable stickers) for a better look on most vehicles. As a complete rack + Cargo, the Saris SuperClamp EX 2-Bike + Cargo will sell for $899 and is available now in 2″ hitch models only.
Saris Bones EX
In an effort to fit more vehicles, Saris has updated their iconic Bones rack with the Bones EX.
Specifically updated to fit more vehicles with spoilers, the rack is said to fit 20% more of the most popular vehicles on the road thanks to the arched upper support legs and strap channels.
It also features the new premium hold down straps from their Glide EX rack which are easier to use and better for frame finishes. Sold in a 3 bike version only, the Bones EX sells for $299.
Saris Glide 2 Bike
Not pictured is the new Glide 2-bike rack which uses the same single handed tilt mechanism found on the Glide 4 and 5. This allows you to easily pivot the bikes away from the vehicle even with the rack loaded. It even works with e-bikes thanks to a 50lb per bike weight limit. The Glide 2 bike sells for $524.
If that wasn’t enough, Saris had a production version of their new MTR rack on display which stands for the Modular Tray Rack. This super versatile rack is sold in multiple options including a single bike rack which can be extended into a 2 or 3 bike rack, or a dual bike rack which can be extended into a 3 or 4 bike rack.
The rack has a number of features that make it stand out including integrated locks, single handed operation of the wheel supports, and wheel blocks for added stability of the bike when in the rack.
The Saris MTR is sold as a 1-bike ($499 USD) or 2-bike ($799 USD) hitch rack and can use 1-bike add-on ($349 USD) and 2-bike add-on trays ($649 USD). Saris plans to add a modular ramp option for $99 later in the year.
