OPTIMISE the gear you’re carrying with crafty storage solutions. New equipment to market includes the Yakima JustClick 3 bike carrier and the Rhino-Rack Pioneer grab handles.
Yakima JustClick 3
Yakima’s JustClick 3 is one of its latest towball-mount bike carriers and is designed to carry three bikes (with the option of four if you add the JustClick +1, RRP$199) and is built tough. It’s strong enough, in fact, to be capable of carrying e-bikes as well as regular treadies (with a maximum tyre width of 3.25-inch), thanks to its total maximum bike weight of 60kg.
The JustClick 3 incorporates wheels for ease of transport and storage, and weighs 20.3kg, so is easy for one person to fit to the towball. The unit features extendable wheel trays for larger frame sizes, a seven-pin flat plug, brake/indicator lighting, a number plate holder and an integrated lock system.
The JustClick 3 also tilts, allowing easy access to the cargo area of your vehicle. The bikes are simply attached via wheel straps and locking arms and for those bigger, heavier bikes, there’s also an optional drive-up ramp (ClickRamp, RRP$89). The JustClick is also available in a two-bike version, the JustClick 2.
RRP: $1099 (JustClick 3); $999 (JustClick 2)

Rhino-Rack Pioneer grab handles
Rhino-Rack has added more to its Pioneer rack system with this new grab handle, designed to aid in loading/unloading your gear and also tying it down on the roof-rack. It is also designed to take your weight if you need something to hold on to as you drop down from loading gear on the rack.
The Grab Handle is nice and large so easy to grab no matter your hand size. It is also a super-strong anchor point for when you are securing your gear up top. The Grab Handle is of diecast aluminium construction and is powder-coated to ensure it is well protected from corrosion. The handle can cope with up to a 120kg load capacity and is very easy to affix to your Pioneer roof rack.
The Grab Handle is compatible with the Pioneer Platform, Tray and Tradie setups and comes with a three-year warranty. The kit includes two Grab Handles and all essential hardware.
