    High quality rack. Secure, yet easy to adjust for quick access to bikes and rear of truck shell. Don’t know how I lived without this.

    Overall, very happy w/ my purchase of the Alta Rack. Love that I can carry my road bikes and mtn bikes as well. As a past owner of a NS6 rack, Thule rack, and current Kuat rack. For a rack that can carry 6 bikes all at once, it is def the best product on the market.

    I had looked at every vertical bike rack out there and had seen almost all of them in person and was set on a Recon Rack until I saw the Alta 6. It happened to be the owner if Alta Rack and he was there to talk to. After talking with him about the design and even with just looking over the rack I was sold. The build is solid like a tank where it needs to be and lighter where it doesn’t. I have always liked tire mounts over handle bar or fork crown mounts. They are more secure because they are deeper and there is never metal on metal contact. Or rubber protectors to wear out. Loading the bikes is easier too. You just lift it up and set the tire in. Plus with the Alta rack its not just a bike rack. It can be a ski rack and there is a hammock attachment coming out among others things. The owner/designer believes if your going to spend that much on a rack it needs to do more then just hold a bike so he is designing new attachments for it.

    The bike rack is very sturdy and well-constructed. The design is very thoughtful and practical. It is actually a little easier to maneuver than the 4-bike platform racks.

    These things are awesome! I had fantastic costumer service. I purchased the Alta 6 and the retractable tie downs. They answered my questions. They took the time with me and made sure I knew how to do everything with the rack and tie downs. Since I drove down to pick it up in person they put the rack together for me as well. They also tested all the joints and lubed them all up.

    Definitely the best rack I have used. As the manager of a bike shop I was looking for something for our shop shuttle. I have used many different bike racks and nothing else compares. The attention to detail is without rival. I will be buying one for my personal car soon.

    Super friendly and responsive. Because we are local, he even assembled the rack for pickup. Once there he spent quite a bit of time explaining all the details of the rack system and had suggestions on how to best utilize it with our specific vehicle. Love the rack. Carries all six of our bikes without touching frames while keeping them all safely away from each other. Very little sway without the tie down straps.

      Thank you so much, so glad you enjoyed the experience.

    Heavy duty and have high expectations for this. Few QC items: Several paint/finish blemishes. Painted on logos are not centered. It’s not perfect but it is the product I’m looking for.

    • altaracks (store manager)

    Great rack. Can carry many types of bikes together like road, Mtn, gravel, DH etc. Also, super quick responses to inquiries. Ability to stabilize with tie downs is also cool.

    Highly recommend.

    • altaracks (store manager)

      Hi Jon, We are so glad the rack is meeting your expectation. Our goal has always been to create a seamless solution for all bikes.

    I have been using a few different brands and styles of rear hitch and rooftop bike racks over the years. As a high school mountain bike coach I use my rack nearly every day. The Alta rack is by far the best built and easiest to use bike rack I have ever had. Fit and finish could not be better. Loading is easier than I anticipated. So easy that even my 15 year old daughter will load and unload bikes. I wish I would have made this purchase years ago.

    • altaracks (store manager)

      That is great to hear Jason.

    This has got to be the best bike rack available on the market, very sturdy, keeps bikes well protected from being scratched or damaged in anyway if used properly. Very prompt service, some washers were missing, I called the number, someone answered, were very apologetic, and shipped the part out immediately. Would highly recommend this product to anyone.

    • altaracks (store manager)

      Thanks Rodger, Sorry about the less than perfect experience on the washers. Our 11 year old has been retrained in HW packing. Family owned, family operated. Greatly appreciate your comment.
