RockyMounts announced the introduction of four new products that expand bike transport and storage options for both mountain bikers and road cyclists. The SwitchHitter and HotRod feature thru-axle mounts. The StreetRod is a thru-axle adapter for existing racks.
The SwitchHitter arrives ready for standard 9 mm quick release forks and includes three interchangeable axle mounts for 12 x 100, 15 x 100 and Boost 110 (15 x 110). The SwitchHitter’s universal fit installs on round, square and most factory crossbars and includes a kit for T-slot mounting on Euro-style bars. Security is also a priority with the new rack, which comes with an integrated cable lock for the bike and the ability to lock the rack to the crossbars. The SwitchHitter is available in eight different colors and has an MSRP of $189.95.
The HotRod is a new, bolt-on truck and home storage mount for bikes with thru-axles. Three interchangeable axles are included to accommodate bikes with 12 x 100, 15 x 100 and Boost 110 (15 x 110) sizes. The aluminum mount can also be converted to work with standard 9 mm quick-release bikes with an optional kit, sold separately, and is available in six anodized colors. MSRP is $49.95. For those with Toyota, Nissan, Chevrolet, and GMC truck beds and aftermarket Unistrut channels, RockyMounts offers a Track Hardware Kit for attaching HotRods to original equipment channels ($19.95).
The StreetRod is a new adapter for standard 9 mm fork-mount racks that makes it possible to securely carry thru-axle bikes. Made of non-corrosive 6063 aluminum and available in a range of six anodized colors, the new adapter easily attaches to fork-mount racks from any manufacturer. The StreetRod ships with three axles to accommodate bikes with 12 x 100, 15 x 100 and Boost 110 (15 x 110) sized axles. MSRP is $49.95.
