South African cyclists will soon have access to a top-rated bike carrier after a deal between Positive Sports Solutions and Horizon Global to distribute the German-designed product in Southern Africa.
The Westfalia bike carrier is being manufactured in South Africa and will be available to local consumers from July this year.
The deal came about when the Westfalia Automotive company was acquired by Horizon Global (a US-based company), who manufacture towbars.
Horizon Global also have a manufacturing interest in South Africa where the bike carrier will be manufactured.
Along with Thule, Westfalia is one of the biggest bicycle carrier brands in Europe.
This new agreement will provide South African consumers with a top-quality brand at a very competitive price, which will be sold online.
The carrier will be launched as a two-bike unit with 3- and possibly 4-bike units to follow.
The bike rack mounts easily onto the towbar and the coupling carrier is designed to make life easier. Multiple locking mechanism ensure both the carrier and the bicycles are fully secure.
The carrier meets and beats all specifications for modern cycle transport, as it is TUV and ECE certified according to Euro Standards. It also fulfils City-Crash Norms.
The bicycle “grippers” are full removable and can thus be altered to secure the bikes from any angle.
The carrier also has a full 90-degree tilt function while secured to the towbar and while carrying bicycles, which helps unhindered access to the trunk of your vehicle at any given time.
