Popular Applications

Kayaks and Canoes

Lifting kayaks onto the roof of a car is a challenge, especially if you are alone. Properly securing them also takes longer and is more strenuous than it should be when it is difficult to access.

With Dropracks, it is possible to load the kayaks on your own without worrying about physical strain and the risk of damaging the car. You can walk around the kayak(s) in the lowered loading position and make sure they are securely fastened with the loading straps before setting off.

Bikes

Lifting bikes, especially heavier electric bikes, onto the roof of a car is associated with risk. It's easy to accidentally get a pedal stripe in the paint. On the Dropracks XL, you can fit up to five bike carriers next to each other, if you mount them alternating back and forth, lengthwise - backwards.0Roof tent

Lifting a roof tent on and off the roof of a car on traditional roof racks can be a real strain, even when you are two people. With Dropracks, this becomes significantly easier. In addition, it is significantly easier to "slip" the roof tent on and off as needed, so you don't have to drive around with the roof tent more than necessary.

Ski box/roof boxes

In the winter, it is well known that cars often get extra dirty from snow, dust, and road salt. With Dropracks on the roof, you don't have to balance with dirty shoes in either the door frame, on the wheels, or on the trailer hitch. Lower the entire roof box down to a comfortable height without getting your clothes dirty from the car, or worrying about the zippers scratching the paint on the car.


Safety in Mind

Dropracks features automatic stainless steel locks to securely hold the rack in place, and has a visual and audible indication that the locks are properly engaged. The release buttons are large and can easily be pressed even while wearing gloves or mittens.

The integrated lifting crank has adjustable momentum to make sure you can lift heavy loads without strain on your body.

Additionally, Dropracks is tested and approved in accordance with international standards for roof racks, ensuring that it is built to withstand the toughest conditions.
