In addition, the roof bike carriers are very easy to assemble and disassemble, making them very user friendly. The SeaSucker bike carriers can be used on different types of cargo where other brands have bike carriers that are only made for one type of cargo. The SeaSucker bike carrier is suitable for mountain bikes, race bikes, and e-bikes. Each vacuum cup can handle up to 95 kilograms of pull, making it a very safe and reliable system.
Who trusts SeaSucker bike carriers?
Various organizations rely on the quality of SeaSucker's bike carriers. Team Jumbo-Visma uses the SeaSucker team rack, which can accommodate nine racing bicycles. Union Cycliste Internationale, like Jumbo-Visma, also uses the team rack. These specially developed team racks are mounted with the same vacuum cups as the other SeaSucker carriers. Former pro riders Klaas Vantornout and Johan Museeuw are both proud users of the SeaSucker Talon for the rides they do out of a passion for the sport. Several current pro riders such as Robert Gesink, Wout Poels, and Xandro Meurisse also rely on SeaSucker roof racks.
On which models are SeaSucker roof racks frequently used?
SeaSucker roof racks are applicable to any type of car, but mainly to lease cars of the brands Volvo, Tesla, Skoda, Volkswagen etc., and sports cars. These cars have a larger roof and therefore have enough space to place the bikes on it. SeaSucker's roof racks are therefore ideal for this type of car, but of course for all types of cars.
Where to put the front wheel?
The bicycles are fixed to the roof rack by means of the bicycle's front fork. In order to mount the bicycle, the front wheel has to be removed from the bicycle. But where do you put the front wheel? SeaSucker has developed the SeaSucker Flight Deck for this purpose. This allows you to place the front wheel on the roof of the car. The rear wheel of the bicycle is mounted on the right side and there is room for the front wheel on the left side.
