Other features and specifications:
- The injection-moulded arms and legs (“bones”) are made from a plastic resin and are said to be the strongest on the market. Most of the weight of the bikes is taken on the Bumper Legs and the rear bumper.
- The curve in the Rear Legs allows the Bones to be used on many saloons and convertibles where the boot spoiler would normally prevent a rack being used.
- The splined aluminium extrusion and the arm and leg joints are designed to absorb a useful amount of force, minimising the load on the straps.
- All three straps pass through the aluminium extrusion, helping to keep everything well-integrated and tidy, and each hook is marked as appropriate – Upper, Side, Lower. Details of this sort make a big difference to setting up speed.
- There are numbers on the arms and legs which, with practise, will help you set up the Bones to your ideal configuration without the hassle of trial or error.
- The hold-down and anti-sway straps have a softer plastic lining; generally all parts that come into contact with the vehicle and bikes are soft enough to prevent friction damage as long as both faces are clean before fitting, i.e. a dirty bumper might end up being scuffed, ditto a muddy bike tube.
- Note that the rear bike should be held higher than the others; this will reduce the strain on the carrier and help prevent friction damage. It’s up to you to protect your bikes – most people don’t seem to bother but others use e.g. bits of old carpet or closed-cell foam mat.
- Bikes need to be properly balanced before being placed on the Arms; if they aren’t they’ll be trying to twist the Bones, and that’s obviously not sensible.
