Whispbar, creator of the world’s quietest and most innovative roof rack system, has applied its sleek design and groundbreaking technology to its latest bike mount, the WB201 Frame Mount Bicycle Carrier.
This premium upright bike mount was carefully designed with both the bike and the vehicle in mind. Its innovative technology provides an easy and secure mount for the bicycle, while its beautiful aerodynamic design lets the carrier integrate beautifully with both the rack and the vehicle.
”The WB201 redefines how the top-of-the-line bike carrier looks and functions,” said Garrett Barnum, Global Brand Director for Whispbar. “Our innovative SmartHold technology takes the worry and error out of the bike mounting process. The WB201 has it all: it’s fast to install, easy to use, safe for bike frames of any material and is drop-dead gorgeous.”
The WB201 Frame Mount Bicycle Carrier features the new SmartHold technology. By closing one lever, it self-adjusts to all downtube shapes and sizes, applying the appropriate pressure to secure the bike while protecting the frame.
The WB201 also features Whispbar’s QuickDock innovative technology, which allows for the fastest installation or removal on the market. The QuickDock is compatible with Whispbar T-slot bars, or Yakima round or square bars with included adapter. Additionally, the Integrated Lock System secures the bike to the carrier and the carrier to the vehicle with a single lock.
