The most interesting three carrier, and a great starter rack. Using the same structure of the ALTA SIX GPR system, we utilize shorter horizontal bars and create a mostly one sided left hand carrier. Clear right side van doors. Super tactical and light 57 Lbs. The ability to convert to the ALTA SIX GPR by changing the horizontal bars and adding baskets. Multiple colors available. Select your desired combination of basket types.

The Lefty can clear right side doors on sprinters and other vans. in some cases it clears both doors with out the need for an extender.

    Love this bike rack! It has been a game changer for us. It is so easy to use and such a great design. We can leave this rack on our suburban and still get in the back to put more supplies and smaller kids bikes. It’s easy for us to decide to go on a ride and just load the bikes on this rack and head out. Before we had a Hollywood rack and it was good, but we couldn’t leave it on our car because it stuck out too far. It was also very heavy and when we wanted to go for a family ride it would take 45 minutes to an hour to get out of the driveway with putting on the rack and loading the bikes. Now we are loaded and ready to go within 15 minutes. I cannot day enough good things about Alta Racks and the owner Ali was great! We are extremely happy with our purchase and I would recommend this rack to anyone. It is well worth the investment.

    Just returned from a trip hauling 3 mtn ebikes 500 miles on and off road. Even with the mass of the ebikes, the rack was secure – frankly I wondered how it would do, but worked very well. I have full confidence in the rack we bough.

    Wow, what a stout rack. With the straps it bomb proof with as many bikes at it can hold!

    Didn’t realize it would stick out so far. Add 5 ft of length to the van for parking and manuevering!

    Love the rack! It’s as advertised, quality and strength from top to bottom. Shipped quickly with all the parts and accessories. Even fits my TT bike with some added protection around the wheels. Only two minor issues – it’s a relatively heavy item to ship so it got slightly beat up (aesthetic only) in transit, and I wish there was a paper instruction manual! Will absolutely be recommending to others!!

      Hi Corey,
      The damage is unacceptable, we will be contacting you in regards to replacing the blemished parts. Assembly videos helps save on paper used once.

    Great rack, was just what I was looking for … a vertical rack that would fit over the rear mounted spare tire and box! I’ve been using the shorter lefty on a Sprinter for ~6 months so far and works great … I’m able to open the rear right rear door all the way and the left rear door about half way without the extension, but just ordered the extension to be able to open both doors all the way. Was very impressed with the build quality, so much so that I also ordered the small table top, looking forward to putting it all together!

    Outstanding service and a bomb-proof, ingeniously simple rack that will clearly last a lifetime! After a month+ of frequent use, I have no complaints. Easy to install and use, and no worries about durability. Worth every penny!
