Brake racks can be customized for your specific application. The following kits are designed based upon the preferences of frequent rack users. To determine which rack kit best fits your need, review the following:
1. Choose from “straight” or “90 degree” harness attachment eye. Most users prefer to orient the rack’s short leg pointing down. Most harnesses with a sewn-in “D” ring that lays flat against the user’s stomach (like our Avatar) need a 90 degree twist eye rack.
2. Select Aluminum or Stainless Steel bars. SS bars are cleaner on the rope and last longer, but have less friction and thus are faster rides with the same number of bars. Select a model number with an A at the end for aluminum bars (including an aluminum top bar) or an S for stainless steel bars.
3. The addition of a stainless steel top bar with an extension (hyper- bar) accommodates easy lock off and extra control – more money but worth it, especially with stainless steel bars. Select a model with an S-2 at the end. (SM13006S2 & SM13506S2 do not include hyper-bar)
