Sturdy, Versatile, Durable, User-Friendly, Stylish
In the vast world of adventure and exploration, having the right gear can make all the difference. Enter the 1Up Xtreme Duty rack, an aluminum powerhouse designed for those who refuse to compromise when it comes to transporting their bikes. It's quite a remarkable feat, really, to have crafted something that marries both strength and style.
From rugged terrains to bustling city streets, this rack is built to withstand the elements, and it shows. The all-aluminum construction can haul an astonishing 150 lbs per tray, allowing you to carry almost any bike to any destination. But it's not just about brute strength. This rack ensures your ride remains steady and secure, thanks to its anti-wobble hitch bar, a feature that stands testament to the attention to detail given to all 1Up products.
Worry not about compatibility, because whether you're using Quik Rack add-ons or the new XD ones, this rack has you covered. And with the potential to increase its capacity to carry three bikes and a whopping total weight of up to 345 lbs with the XD Add-Ons, it truly pushes the boundaries of what's possible.
Now, let's talk functionality. The Double Bent Arms are designed to ensure lateral stiffness, reducing any chances of your bike swaying side to side. The Xtreme Duty Wheel Chock is a smart addition, minimizing bike movement by reducing steer tube rotation—quite essential for bikes over 75 lbs or those adventurous off-road journeys.
But it doesn’t stop there. The Lock-in Pivot Beam ensures that the pivot has almost no play, ensuring extra rigidity. While the Spring Pin mechanism makes accessing your vehicle effortless, the Glide Bar Ratcheting system guarantees a firm grip on your bike. And for those who dread the loading process, the V Style Ramp promises a hassle-free experience.
In terms of dimensions, the rack can accommodate a broad range of wheels, from 16” to 29”, and up to 5.25” wide. With a built-in anti-wobble mechanism in the hitch bar and a tilt-and-fold feature, it's clear that every aspect of this rack has been thought out meticulously. Plus, the aesthetics haven't been overlooked either. The anodized parts combined with the powder-coated finish on the tray give it a sleek and durable look.
What's packed in the box, you ask? You'll find the 2″ Xtreme Duty Single itself, a Slotted Hitch Bar Lock, and of course, the instructions to get you started.
For many of us, our bikes aren't just objects; they're an extension of who we are. They've been with us through countless adventures, from the sunlit trails of the countryside to the bustling urban jungles. And it's evident that the team at 1Up USA understands this bond. Their commitment shines through in their products—each one designed with an unyielding focus on making transportation effortless and safe.
So, whether you're hitting the trails every weekend, training for your next race, or just enjoying a leisurely ride through the park, one thing is clear: your bike deserves the best. And in the realm of bike racks, the 1Up Xtreme Duty stands as a testament to what's possible when passion meets precision. No matter where your journey takes you, with this rack, your beloved bike is in good hands.
