Our history of getting folks out there to do what they love spans more than 25 years. Some of you have been with us since the beginning. And we thank you. Some of you are new to the party. Welcome.
We're a bunch of active, outdoor enthusiasts who play hard and work hard so you can play hard. You've got trails to blaze, rivers to tame, and mountains to attack. We want to make sure you and your gear get there safe and sound. We like to call our products "destination hardware." Because that's what we're about, getting you to your destination.
We've been making "bomber quality" racks for over 25 years. It's more functional and durable than anything else on the market. We hold incredibly high standards for our products. After all, we use them all the time. And there's no way we're going to use anything except the best.
If there's ever anything wrong with your rack, tell us. We'll try to make it right. If you have any suggestions on how we can make things better, don't be afraid to share. We're here because we want to make things easier for you. It's a fun job that we take very seriously.
You might be surprised to learn that we don't just make racks for transporting your gear. We're also philosophers.
That's not to say we hang around in togas all day pondering our bellybuttons. We don't. Instead, we hang around in togas all day pondering how to make better racks.
So what did we figure out after all this time kicking it like Aristotle? Like all the best philosophies, ours is quite simple. And it can be summed up in three short sentences: Make it functional. Make it durable. And make it beautiful.
You can see the result of our philosophy all throughout this website. Nowhere else will you find products that get your gear to the great outdoors this sweet and easy. Or, that can withstand as much abuse.
And, for the beauty part, we've taken inspiration from sources as diverse as nature, sports, and the automotive world. But we've also used a minimalist approach. That means we don't incorporate design elements just because they're pretty. They have to be functional, too.
So when you check out products like the SkyBox Pro, FatCat, HighRoller, and the SprocketRocket, terms like "elegant simplicity" tend to spring to mind. And hopefully, terms like "dang, I've got to get me one of those" will spring to mind, too.
Enjoy the results of our deep thinking as you read through this website. We hope you'll agree it's way more entertaining than the usual philosophical treatise.
