Atera STRADA DL 2 Tilting Bike Carrier

Exclusive UKCampsite.co.uk Discount        Where to Buy        Win this Bike Rack!

This is one of the Roofbox Companys five "Hall of Fame" all time outstanding products, representing as it does a quantum leap in bike carrier design. The bike platform slides away from the tow ball to allow good access to the tailgate, taking the weight of the bikes. It has an innovative self-adjusting tow ball fixing system which also holds the carrier horizontal as soon as it's placed on the tow ball, a triangular frame shape that allows you to come right in close to the tow ball (so you don't have to lean across the bike carrier to access the boot space, with consequent risk to your back), and even UK legal foglights.

And it's small enough to put into the boot when not in use. And also very light.

The Roofbox Company reckon that the Atera STRADA DL tilting bike carriers are the best designed and best engineered tow ball carriers on the market, bar none.

What's so special about the STRADA DL 2?

  • Fundamentally, it slides away from the vehicle, rather than tilting, i.e. the bike carrier takes the weight of the bikes, rather than you, and there's tailgate clearance even for vehicles with vertical tailgates. It's by far and away the easiest tilting carrier to use.

  • It fits to 'bolt on' or 'swan neck' tow balls Just place it on the tow ball and push down the handle - no spanners or Allen keys are required.

  • It's very easy to carry - it won't bump your shins if carried properly - and as soon as you place it on the tow ball the weight is taken, so you can straighten up and rest your back. Other carriers require you to support the platform with one hand while fiddling with the fixing system with the other.

  • It's much the lightest of the 2 or 3 bike tilting wheel support racks on the market.

  • It's the most compact 2 to 3 bike carrier available. At only 1 metre wide it should fit into most if not all car boots

  • The bike frame holders are the best available, incorporating a ratchet tightening mechanism. They fit oval and other outsize frames as well as round ones, wrapping a strap right around the frame for safety and security.

  • The frame is triangular which allows you, when the bikes have been slid out of the way, to stand almost right up against the tow ball. This means you can lift items into and out of the boot both safely and easily.

  • The fog lights are UK legal, i.e. the fog light is on the right / offside of the car. Other bike carriers with fog lights have these on the left / nearside of the car, which is illegal

  • It makes sense when using this carrier to place a safety strap around all the bikes and the bike holder support frame. The Roofbox Company therefore provide a free strap with each carrier!

They are, undoubtedly, great at what they do .... though pricey ... the only drawback, for some, will be that you cannot tow and carry bikes at the same time. Roof Box also rave about, and sell, the MaxxRaxx bike carrier, which allows towing ... and is a lot cheaper.

... but for those not towing, this type of carrier are the bee's knee's! Can't comment on this particular make/model, as I have a Thule equivalent (although I have had excellent dealings with The RoofboxCo). I can tilt mine (with 2 bikes still in place, of course), and get all my gear... including a big/bulky/heavy tent... in and out of my boot via the tailgate (Was Kia Sedona, now VW Sharan... both MPV's). My previous non-tilting carrier had to be removed from the towbar (after first removing each bike, of course!) to get at the tailgate... and then secured to a tree or similar, for the duration of any camping trip! With a tilter, there's no need to remove, and as the carrier is locked to the towball, and the bikes locked to the carrier, all remains secure, on or off site. I'd highly recommend at least "this type" of cycle carrier to anyone who takes bikes (but doesn't tow!). A fabulous bit of kit. I don't need one... but there's no harm in entering the competition!! Great stuff... and a big thanks to both UKCS and Roofboxco!
