Allen Sports Ultra Compact Folding 1-Bike Trunk Mount Rack
The Allen® MT1 ultra-compact folding 1-bike carrier is the ultimate solution for your minimalist cycle-transport needs. It attaches easily to most vehicles in only moments, with a Lowe frame that protects both the bike and the car from damage. It collapses into a carry bag that is small enough to stick into a backpack or briefcase.Need an on-the-spot bike carrier but don’t want to carry a full-sized rack around? Turn to the Allen MT-1 ultra-compact one-bike carrier, which folds up small and fits in almost any bag, including your backpack. Ideal for traveling, commuting, and other occasions when a portable bike rack might come in handy, the rack is small yet secure, with three padded legs that rest against your vehicle and three adjustable straps that secure to your car’s hatchback or trunk gaps. Just as importantly, the rack holds your bike in a safe position thanks to the tie-downs and padding, which combine to keep your bike from rocking or making contact with your vehicle. And when you’re done using the rack, simply fold it up and store it inside the included carrying bag. The one-bike rack–which sports a gray powder-coated finish–is designed to fit sedans, hatchbacks, minivans, and SUVs.
About Allen Bike Racks Started out of founder Dick Allen’s garage in 1967, Allen Sports is committed to producing the highest-quality, easiest-to-use bike, parking, and storage racks on the market. Dick Allen, a onetime aerospace engineer, opened Allen Sports after building a prototype bike carrier in his Lincoln, Massachusetts, shop in his free time. The bike enthusiast tested the trunk-mounted carrier–made of electrical conduit, metal strapping, and fire hose casings (for padding)–on weekend excursions. Shortly afterward, Allen took his design to consumers, moving from local to national sales by 1971. Today, the company owns more than three dozen patents and operates three warehouses nationally, two factories abroad, and sells products in more than a dozen countries around the world.
