Cal Phillips was the inventor, designer, and owner of the original Quik Rack and was already busy working on his latest and greatest Quik Rack Mach2 before parting ways with (company name removed for legal reasons). In addition to carrying more weight and meeting the need for hauling several heavy ebikes, the Mach2 corrects the six major “issues” of the original rack. Cal is no longer associated with (company name removed for legal reasons) and now works with QuikrStuff.
Easy-access pivot trigger – With an easy-access trigger on the end of every Add-on, gone are the days of reaching blindly under the rack to find that sticky release bar that often became a 2-person job.
No tool Add-ons – Add and remove Add-ons in seconds. No tools needed.
One key anti-theft system – The same lock and key is used to lock the rack into the hitch, the Add-ons together, and the ramp accessory to the Add-ons. If you wish to purchase an additional Add-on later down the road, we can look up what variation of lock you have and match it. This is also true for our Wheel Lock accessory.
No tools wheel size adjustment – Switch between strider bikes and big boy bikes in seconds. To accommodate wheels of any size, just loosen the gold lever, slide, and tighten. Tire spools are already fat tire ready, no spacer kit needed.
Redesigned hitch – The new hitch design uses two aluminum pads instead of one steel ball. The pads are stronger, smoother, and more stable, as the old steel ball version could deform the hitch over time. The same key is used to lock the Add-ons together and the rack into the hitch. It can only lock in the top 200 degrees, eliminating the chance of locking it in the down position, where it is prone to damage.
Portability and Storage – Press the blue plate to fold for easy carrying, transport, and storage. One-bike rack weighs 28 lbs. + 22 lbs. per Add-on.
Ramp accessory – Roll heavy Ebikes onto the rack with our modular ramp accessory. It uses the same anti-theft system and attaches just like another Add-on.
No tools pivoting license plate holder accessory – Your new rack may obstruct the view of your vehicle’s license plate. If that happens, you can use the Quik attach license plate brackets to move your license plate to the back of the rack where it is more visible. Once installed, you will be able to move your license plate from your rack to your vehicle within seconds and without tools.
