The Westfalia three-bike rack, distributed by Positive Sports Solutions and now available in the country, has become a big hit with South African cyclists.
The SA cycling distribution company has negotiated a number of contracts over the past year to bring various premium brands to the market in the Southern Africa Development Community.
After initially offering the two-bike rack to the southern African market, Positive Sports Solutions has gone a step further to satisfy a growing call for the slightly bigger three-bike option.
“There is far more interest in the three-bike rack compared to the two-bike one,” said David Pieterse, the company’s product and technical manager.
“I think you find many people club together to attend races nowadays, so it’s obviously better to transport as many bikes as you can.
“In addition, if you go somewhere with your family or friends, the three-bike option makes it ideal to travel together.”
The good news for those who want to transport equipment is that the three-bike rack is almost identical to its smaller cousin and operates in the same way.
Pieterse added that the locking system was the same for the bigger rack and that it could carry mountain bikes, road bikes and E-bikes.
Despite the growing popularity of the three-bike option, Pieterse said there was still a market for the smaller rack.
“It is largely due to the success of the two-bike option in our target market that people are now looking to expand their transportation options,” he added.
“The three-bike racks are available at all cycling stores or you can purchase them through our website [www.positivesportssolutions.co.za] at the same price as in the retail shops.”
