We take a closer look at 3XM’s Deluxe Smooth canopies and Rhino-Rack’s Pioneer Thru Axle bike carrier.
3XM Deluxe Smooth Canopies
3XM Deluxe Smooth Canopies are manufactured from heavy duty hand-laid fibreglass and feature a textured finish with a small raise in the roofline. They have a durable resin-based UV-protected gel coat exterior and mould-resistant flow coat interior.
Features include tempered 4mm safety glass all ’round with a 30 per cent tint on the sides and rear, sliding windows with flyscreens, triple-positioned locks on the sliding windows for ventilation and security, LED interior strip light, gas strut assisted rear door with central T-handle, LED brake light and a sliding front window.
RRP: From $2100 (plus freight or fitting)
Rhino-Rack Pioneer Thru Axle Bike Carrier
The new Rhino-Rack Pioneer Thru Axle Bike Carrier is the brand’s first bike carrier specifically engineered to attach directly to the Pioneer Platform. The kit comes pre-assembled with a 15 x 100mm through-axle insert, and Rhino-Rack offers additional sizes to suit different bikes.
The front of the bicycle is secured with a fork carrier that can be rotated to prevent handlebar clashes with other bikes, and the rear wheel can be quickly and easily secured via a strap. The rear wheel carrier can also be flipped to fit on smaller trays.
The carrier housing is made from black satin powdercoated steel, while the inserts are blue anodised aluminium to prevent corrosion. The Thru Axle Bike Carrier is rated to carry up to 17kg on-road and 11kg off-road.
