Two Front Runner racks – the Pro Bike Carrier & Load Bed Rack Side Mount – aim to make getting off-road for mountain bike adventures easier. Whether you’re hoping to cut down on the time before you hit the trail, or looking to haul more gear in tight spaces, Front Runner has you covered with heavy-duty setups to safely get your bike into the backcountry…
Front Runner Outfitters overland adventure-ready bike racks
Front Runner Outfitters creates a number of hauling solutions to kit out your truck or van for overland adventure – pick from full-length van roof racks, cap or trailer top racks, the Load Bed rack that sits just above your pick-up bed, plus plenty of interior racks & sliding storage. But once you pick your rack, of course, you’ll need to get some bike mounts to carry your trusty MTB steed.
Front Runner Pro Bike Carrier, wheels-on bike roof rack
Front Runner’s heavy-duty $424 Pro Bike Carrier is built to secure your bike for off-road driving to hard-to-reach trailheads, without having to remove your front wheel.
The powder-coated stainless steel rack bolts directly to the rails of your base Front Runner Rack, with the two front loops locking down your front wheel and a traditional tray & ratchet strap securing the rear wheel. Overland-ready security without touching your frame.
The Pro carrier is designed to fit almost any bike, from road to fat bikes with 26-29″ wheels and tires from 18mm all the way up to 5.2″. The non-locking carrier folds flat, and locks down securely when not in use.
Front Runner Load Bed Rack Side Mount extra bike rack carrier
Now, if you have a pick-up with a Load Bed Rack and don’t want bikes to take up precious cargo space on the rack, their new Side Mounts hang bikes off the side so you keep all your gear-hauling capacity.
Developed specifically to work with their rack already hovering over your pick-up truck bed, the new mounts cantilever your standard wheel-off bike carrier off to either side, attached securely to the Load Bed’s legs, without using any of your rack space.
Each $98 powder coated stainless steel Side Mount creates an off-road-secure platform to install one of Front Runner’s two fork-mounted bike racks (Fork Mount or Thru Axle bike carriers sold separately), and can be mounted on either the left or right side of your base Rack.
