The market is flooded with a plethora of bike racks, each trying to outdo the other with features that might sound enticing on paper. But, it’s important not to lose focus on what really matters and to recognize some of the deficiencies that are being masked. Gas piston lift assists are one such feature. While they may look impressive, the reality is that these parts are easily damaged by road debris and can quickly become unusable.
It’s important to consider the bigger picture and why certain features are necessary. For instance, why is the lowering of the rack such a significant feature? It’s because many racks have subpar designs that restrict access to the vehicle. So, the lowering feature becomes necessary at every interaction. If the rack didn’t restrict access in the first place, there would be no need for such features. At Alta Racks, we build products that work with your vehicle and don’t restrict it.
Ultimately, the key to a long-lasting product is simplicity. Bells and whistles are nice, but once they break, you’re left with a product that doesn’t function as advertised. Don’t be fooled by fancy features and instead focus on important factors such as continuous welds and spot welds. At Alta Racks, we take pride in our precise engineering and reviews. We choose to pay living wages, follow environmental laws, and provide real value right here in the USA.
It’s time to bring back the expectation for better products, American-made products, and products that last a lifetime.

The imitators may try to copy us, but we will always remain ahead of the game. So, let’s make a choice to buy American-made products and revolutionize the industry.
