NEW YORK, NY, March 29, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- KTOPBIKE INC, a company that produces practical riding-specific products, just launched the "KTOP Bike Rack" on the global crowdfunding platform Kickstarter, which allows bicycles to be placed horizontally on vehicles.
Many people load their riding bicycles onto the vehicle roof rack when traveling to see beautiful scenery. However, it may be difficult to stabilize the bicycle on the roof rack, causing many people to give up. Conventional roof racks require bicycles to be placed vertically, which can easily shake during driving, and there is a risk of collision when entering a low-ceilinged space.
The KTOP Bike Rack is designed to lay the bicycle horizontally, solving the problems of conventional roof racks. It provides about 3 feet of clearance compared to conventional roof racks, preventing the risk of collision in low-ceiling garages, underground parking lots, and other height-limited areas. In addition, the triple locking system securely holds the bicycle in place, ensuring no shaking even during off-road driving.
With this innovative product, it is much easier and safer to place bicycles on the rack than with conventional roof racks. Previously, it was necessary to climb onto the vehicle to lay bicycles on the roof rack, and there was a risk of the bicycle falling over while being placed on the rack.
The "KTOP Bike Rack" places the bicycle horizontally on the vehicle, making it much more stable. By securing the bicycle in 3 axes using two wheels and the top tube, it minimizes the shaking of the bicycle during rough terrain and speed bumps. This roof rack can be installed on any vehicle and can hold all types of bicycles. In addition, it can accommodate various geometries of bicycles from regular bicycles to MTBs, Fat Bikes, etc. by adjusting the position of the wheel holders and bars according to the bicycle's wheel spacing.
The 3 feet of extra space created by changing from a vertical to horizontal design allows for more freedom during driving and parking. As a result, it can enter low-ceiling and cramped parking lots, and there is also enough space to estimate when backing into a parking spot. If it was the lack of space to use a bicycle roof rack due to those restrictions while driving, the "KTOP Bike Rack" could be an excellent alternative.
Even beginners can easily install this product, and it can be reinstalled in just 5 minutes after being folded and stored. In addition, the built-in KTOP BAR includes two lock systems, a key lock, and a wire lock, which prevent not only the bike from falling off the rack but also from any bike theft.
You can find the KTOP Bike Rack, a horizontal roof rack for safely storing your bike during your travels, at a discounted price on Kickstarter. For more details, you can check out the campaign page on Kickstarter.
