South African cyclists will be able to benefit in the bicycle accessory sphere after an agreement between Positive Sports Solutions and Horizon Global to distribute a top-branded German-designed bike rack in Southern Africa.
Initially aimed at the European consumer, the Westfalia bike carrier will be available to local customers in the second half of 2018.
US-based company Horizon Global, who bought out Westfalia Automotive, have a manufacturing footprint in South Africa where the bike carrier will be produced for the local market.
A natural extension of the towbar is the bike carrier and this led to Positive Sports Solutions signing a sole distribution agreement with Horizon Global South Africa to sell the bike carriers in South Africa and SADC countries, reaching as far as Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
This will provide South African consumers with a top-quality brand at an affordable price, via an online purchasing model.
The bicycle carrier has expanded dimensions of 1260 x 660 x 690mm (W/H/D) with compact and easy storable folded-up dimensions of only 580 x 225 x 690mm (W/H/D).
The bike rack mounts easily onto the towbar and once in place the coupling carrier is designed to make your life easier.
The bicycle “grippers” can be altered to secure the bikes from any angle at any accessible and desirable area you prefer.
The carrier also has a full 90-degree tilt function while secured to the towbar and while carrying bicycles, which helps unhindered access to the trunk of your vehicle at any given time.
