What is a Kupper Mounts Bike Rack?
Kupper Mounts are a new type of bike rack that uses very powerful suction cups to allow any bicycle enthusiast to install the bike racks on any vehicle, regardless of country, to transport bicycles on weekend getaways as well as long-distance biking vacation trips.
Kupper Mounts Bike Racks fit easily into carry-on or checked-baggage for airline and train trips. They also solve the common problem of trying to find a bike rack that will fit on any car, rental car, even convertibles, SUVs, trucks or vans, regardless of what country you’re traveling in.
Kupper Mounts offer much larger and stronger vacuum-powered suction cups than Sea Sucker (9″ vs. 4.5″) and do not require a luggage rack or trailer hitch like Thule or Yakima, thus they cost hundreds of dollars less.
The innovative suction-cup technology allows the Kupper Mounts bike rack to be installed on any clean section of glass or metal on a vehicle that is smooth and clean enough to maintain a seal. The Kupper Mounts utilize a very strong vacuum air pump that sucks air out of the suction cup, which builds up a super strong bond with over 400+ lbs. of air pressure to maintain a long lasting vacuum seal.
Kupper Mounts are Great for Bike Shop Merchandizing
Bike shops love the new bike racks because they can be used to merchandize bikes on the outside of a bike shop’s store windows to make customers aware of their bike dealer’s location to draw new customers inside to shop around for a new bike and/or a bike rack. Kupper Mounts provide an easy-to-use solution that is great for traveling with extra friends, or anytime a group needs additional travel capacity for carrying up to 4 bikes on any type of passenger vehicle.
The Benefits of Buying a Kupper Mounts Bike Rack
“Kupper Mounts are great for transporting muddy bikes. They do not touch any paint on the frame of a bike, nor do they stack bikes on top of each other, which can cause damage when driving down bumpy dirt roads because bikes sometimes bounce and rattle on top of each other, breaking attachments or rubbing/scratching off a bike’s paint job,” noted Andrew Jarrard, Kupper Mounts President. “The same is true about hood, roof and trunk straps that rub on vehicle paint jobs. Kupper Mounts do not have this drawback. And it doesn’t take 30-minutes to install or uninstall them. Kupper Mounts install in less than 2-minutes and un-install in 5-seconds.”
“Kupper Mounts only touch a bike’s tire rims and are strapped down very tight with Velcro straps. No bouncing, no rattling, no scratching or breakage. And compared to other racks, Kupper Mounts low profile racks slip through the wind like a Frisbee with very little noise unlike other racks that sometimes make annoying whistling and flapping noises,” Jarrard added.
Are Kupper Mount Bike Racks Easy to Clean and Store?
Yes. When bicyclists get home, they can take their dirty Kupper Mounts bike racks inside and stick them on their shower’s wall and hose them off with a shower wand. Kupper bike racks are small, very portable and very easy to get clean and store in a their convenient hard-case, travel carrying kit.
What Bikes Are Compatible with Kupper Mounts?
The bike racks accept all standard 9mm quick release fitments and can transport any type of two-wheel mountain bike, road racing bike and/or motocross bicycle that weighs 45-lbs or less.
Do Kupper Mounts Support Thru-Axle Mountain Bikes?
Yes. They can be purchased with special Hurricane or Rocky Mounts adapters that make them compatible with any mountain bike that has a 15mm x 100mm thru-axle suspension.
