National Retailers to Feature the Thule Racks All New 961XT Speedway 2 and 962XT Speedway 3 Trunk Bike Racks for 2005
April 05, 2005 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) Montpelier, VT (PRLEAP) April 5, 2005 — ORS Racks Direct, a nationwide retailer of truck and car rack systems for commercial and sports gear applications, announced today that the company is featuring the all-new 2005 Thule 962XT Speedway 3 and Thule 961XT Speedway 2 car trunk mount bike racks. Thule Racks has reduced the number of bike trunk racks offered and combined the features of several racks into one system. The Thule 962XT Speedway 3 ( image available at http://www.orsracksdirect.com/thule-962xt-speedway-trunk-bike-rack.html ) transports up to three bikes and the Thule 961XT Speedway 2 ( image available at http://www.orsracksdirect.com/thule-961xt-speedway-trunk-bike-rack.html ) transports up to two bicycles. The company states that, along with several other new features, Thule Racks most significant improvement is the innovation of the No Sway cages and T3 cradles.
"Vehicle trunk mount bicycle carriers have improved significantly over the past few years, and Thule's new 961XT and 962XT Speedway series represents the best of the best," stated Shawn Standen, General Manager of Sales and Operations. "The new cradle design of these trunk bike racks stabilizes and secures bicycles like never before. One quick adjustment ensures that a bike won't sway back and forth, preventing the bike from contacting the vehicle. For years we've relied on old fashioned bungee cords to restrict bike sway. Thankfully the 961XT Speedway 2 and Thule 962XT Speedway 3 make that a thing of the past." Mr. Standen further explained, "Thule Racks went to great efforts to combine all features into one trunk carrier series, significantly reducing the sometimes overwhelming number of products a customer must choose from. Now customers really only have to decide how many bikes they'll be transporting."
Other features include Thule's patented Fit Dial, ensuring an exacting fit on virtually all types of cars, vans and SUV's including sedan, wagon and minivan models. An advanced and flexible arm design will also allow the bike trunk racks to work with many rear spoilers. A cable lock is recommended for securing the bicycles to the carrier. All straps and hardware are also included. The Thule Racks 961XT Speedway 2 has a minimum suggested retail price of $110.00. The 962XT Speedway 3 bike trunk rack has a minimum suggested retail price of $130.00.
