Saris cycling group traces its origins back to 1973, when the graber brothers invented their first bike rack. The grabers sold the bike rack company in 1989 to Chris and sara fortune, who created the saris brand in 1992, and followed it up with cycleops in 1999 and powertap in 2001. As a constant innovator, the madison, wisconsin-based company introduced the first powertap-equipped indoor cycle in 2004, making it possible for riders train with precision. Boasting a company of dedicated product managers, ingenious engineers, creative designers, and hardworking EMPLOYEES, saris cycling group keeps its customers on the cutting edge of bike design.
they protect the bikes but unfortunately convert my 4 bike (hitch mounted) rack into a 3 bike rack. Also treat them as a consumable as there will be losses..... rough tracks, long journeys, etc....
Best invention ever for protecting your bike/car etc! After many trips wrapping my new beach cruiser in rags and duct tape, which fall off, shift, look lame... I found these! They protect the bikes from the rack, other bikes and my car from being scratched! LOVE these....SO WORTH every penny!
I used to scratch my bike and my girlfriend during long trip because the kept hitting each other. This product solved that problem, it is easy to install and remove and keep the bikes from hitting each other.
The foam is great to protect bikes from rubbing on each other in the bike rack, but the pads had to be modified as too deep to fit between bikes on my car rack.
Keeps bike extra secure and protects against damage from other bikes. Does what it promises at a very low cost. After reading other reviews I purchased Velcro Velstraps Marine Grade to hold them into place to prevent slippage.
A must for the Saris rear suspension three bike rack. These buffer between bikes and between the rear of the vehicle. I haven't had any problems with the blocks slipping off during driving and one of my bikes has larger circumference aluminum tubing.
These are terrific!
Helped to protect a couple of bikes from the bike rack and from clashing against each other whilst on the move. Overall happy but could do with at least one of the pads having a larger hole so that it could fit on a front fork.
En algunos casos se mueven con la vibracion del auto, en la primer salida con este producto una de los pads se perdió
