FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Lehi, UT) – November 25, 2023 – VelociRAX, an emerging industry leader in car racks and accessories, is proud to announce the release of its game-changing innovation- SkiRAX: an easy-installation accessory that converts a VelociRAX hitch-mount bike rack into a hitch-mount ski rack-making VelociRAX the ultimate twofer for mountain sport enthusiasts.
Designed for year-round mountain adventure, this cutting-edge ski rack attachment enables one rack to carry bikes, skis, and snowboards. A Sports and Fitness Industry Association (SFIA) report found that almost nine million Americans ride bikes off-road, and Ski Magazine reported that many skiers are also mountain bikers. For VelociRAX, offering their growing customer base a single hitch-mount rack seemed only natural to accommodate both sports.
One Rack to Facilitate Year-Round Mountain Access
SkiRAX, a hitch mount ski rack for your car, is an affordable solution for year-round mountain sports enthusiasts. This sleek and sturdy rack offers several standout features:
- Maximum Carry Capacity: One SkiRAX set can securely hold up to six pairs of skis or six snowboards.
- Easy Access: Hinge your VelociRAX down for easy back hatch access to your winter sports gear inside the vehicle.
- Fast Installation: The SkiRAX accessory can convert your VelociRAX bike rack into a ski rack for your car in under fifteen minutes.
- Very Affordable: The SkiRAX attachment is significantly more affordable than most roof and hitch ski/snowboard racks. SkiRAX is offered at a special introductory price of $199 and will sell at retail for $229.
- Effortless Loading: Loading and unloading your skis and snowboards is a breeze with no heavy lifting, thanks to the user-friendly design and adjustable holders that accommodate various ski widths.
- Aerodynamic Efficiency: Offers less drag on your vehicle to improve fuel efficiency and reduce wind noise.
- Rugged Durability: Built to withstand harsh winter conditions, SkiRAX is constructed from high-quality materials, ensuring it can handle years of heavy use.
