Let's 'RACK IT UP'
What To Look For In A Car Rack
There are a lot of things to consider before purchasing a car rack. Such questions like 'Which rack is right for my needs?', 'What am I going to use this rack for?', 'How many bikes do I want to carry?', and 'Do I want to carry skis or snowboards?' are probably going through your mind right now, but first it is important to realize the basics of a good rack, and then decide what kind of rack you are going to need.
There are three main important features that you should look for in a rack. If your rack has all of these then you are defiantly on the right track.
First off, the rack should be relatively easy to use. Imagine coming back from a long day of skiing or snowboarding, and your hands are absolutely frozen and you have just barely made it to your car, the last thing you want is to be struggling with a car rack that isn't easy to use.
Next, you want to make sure that the rack you are purchasing is durable, and is going to last you as long as possible. Check to see if the rack is made of aluminum or whether or not it is powder-coated.
Lastly and most important, make sure that it is secure, and that all key components are made of metal and not plastic, and that you can lock it up and feel safe leaving your equipment unattended.
