Handling everything from a narrow 23mm road tire up to a 5.0″ fat bike treat, the new RockyMounts TomaHawk’s minimalist design certainly belies its capabilities.
The TomaHawk mounts to their (or any) roof cross bars, whether they be round, square, factory or aero, and the design handles anything from 20″ to 29er. The tray’s extrusion coddles all tire widths, hold the tires to it with ratcheting straps. Two strap extensions are included to reach around the fat bike tires. The bike is held securely by the sliding hook up top, which cranks down onto the tire, ideally just against the fork. Other than that, there’s no contact with the frame.
It’s available with paired locks – one to secure it to your roof rack, the other to secure your bike inside it. You can also switch the swingarm’s mounting side, making it easier to use on both driver and passenger sides.
The TomaHawk is rated for bikes up to 35lb (16kg) and has a lifetime warranty. Retail is just $159.99, available now. If you need to carry heavier bikes or want some color options beyond black, their BrassKnuckles ups the feature set for $40 more.
