WHY ARE OUR BIKE COVERS THE BEST IN THE MARKET?
We take immense pride in our heavy-duty bike covers which we know are the best in the market – we regularly benchmark test our covers vs the competition.
Our bike covers are made from our own specification of high quality ripstop fabric, which is PU coated – the material is waterproof, but breathable. Our ripstop fabric is considerably better than standard polyester materials used for most other bike covers which do little to protect your bike, especially when the weather gets tough. We also double stitch and heat seal the seams of the bike covers to ensure there are no leaks – protecting your bike is our priority.
WHAT IS RIP-STOP MATERIAL?
Rip-stop material is made from a combination of extra strong nylon and polyester threads which are woven into a square pattern. This extra thread strength is what stops a tear or a rip from continuing beyond the first square, hence the name ‘rip-stop’.
The material is not indestructible – no fabric is that good – however the special structure minimizes the damage to the material if torn or ripped.
CAN OUR BIKE COVERS BE USED ON A HITCH MOUNTED BIKE RACK WHEN TRAVELLING?
Yes, they can.
NOTE: Due to the potential combination of strong winds and travelling at speed, we recommend thoroughly strapping down the bike cover to ensure your setup is safe and secure when travelling. If too much air gets under the cover this could make the cover billow and potentially cause stress to the seams.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT SIZE BIKE COVER
Choosing the right size of bike cover is very important to ensure a great fit and you get the right size of bike cover for your needs. There are different variables to consider, whether that’s bike type and size, the number of bikes and how they’re going to be stored. Please see our below guide to choosing the right bike cover, the first time.
How to Measure To match the right size bike cover to your bike storage set up, please measure the width, length, and height of your ‘whole bike storage set-up’. If using a bike rack, please take into consideration that the bikes will potentially be positioned apart and sometimes in opposite directions (e.g. hitch mounted bike rack).
SIDE BY SIDE STORAGE (NO RACKS)
This is the most common storage method whether storing your bikes inside or outside. Sizing is generally straightforward, however, please consider type and sizes of bikes.
FLOOR STANDING RACK
There are different types of floor standing racks whether single ‘push-in’ or traditional floor parking bike rack. When storing two or more bikes in a bike rack they are generally positioned in the same direction and apart. We, therefore, recommend to potentially ‘size-up’. For example, if storing two medium or large bikes on a floor parking bike rack, we recommend our XXL size bike cover.
HITCH MOUNTED BIKE RACK
When using a hitch mounted bike rack on either the back of an RV, truck or car we recommend to ‘size-up’ as mounting bikes on a rack tend to be positioned apart and in opposite directions. For example, if storing 2 medium to large bikes, we recommend our XXL size bike cover.
When ‘travelling’ we also strongly recommend strapping down the bike cover to reduce potential billowing and to ensure your setup is safe and secure when travelling.
