RockyMounts launches swing-away platform rack

By Stephen Frothingham

BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — RockyMounts has launched a new platform-style rear rack that swings away to allow access to the rear of the vehicle. The rack, called the MonoRail Swing, has a “sibling” product, the MonoRail, that does not have the sinwg-away feature.

The MonoRail products are the latest in a series of new product introductions this year. So far this year, the company has launched six new products: the TomaHawk rooftop rack, the SwitchHitter, StreetRod, HotRod, and LoBall fork-mount racks, and most recently, the SplitRail hitch rack.

Bruno Maier, RockyMounts’ president, said the company will announce an entirely new product line at the Interbike Expo later this month.

The MonoRail Swing fits 2-inch receivers and holds bikes with wheel sizes between 20-29-inches, with no frame contact. It also provides clearance for all fat bikes, including those with Bluto forks and 197mm rear spacing. It has a proprietary anti-wobble chromoly hitch tube that’s lightweight and corrosion resistant, a locking hitch pin, and a cable lock. It carries two bikes standard, plus a third via an add-on that’s sold separately for $149.95. Its anticipated MSRP of $529.95 includes a lifetime warranty.RockyMounts MonoRail Hitch Rack
