What can RAK-it do for you
CAN I FIT A RAK_IT WITH A SADDLE BAG ?
Rak-it is small and fits neatly under any saddle. It is still possible to fit a saddle bag under the saddle when a Rak-it is fitted. The transition bar fits easiliy between a Rak-it and bag. We have customers who are siccessfully taking advantage of the gains a Rak-it gives you, with saddle bags fitted.
A comment from one of our customers was :-
IS RAK-IT EASY TO FIT ?
Rak-it is held in place on any saddle with two small discrete brackets. Fitting only takes a few seconds and Rak-it comes with all the tools needed.
We have uploaded on the website a video describing the fitting process. I am sure you will see that it is something that anyone can do.
IS RAK-IT GOING TO ADD A LOT OF WEIGHT TO MY BIKE ?
A question we are often asked, without going into the complications of measuring the effect we felt it was better to summarise the weight and let you decide if this addition out weighs the gains.
RAK-it weighs 53 grams, that equivalent to 3.5 tablespoons of water, a medium hens egg, 264 rain drops or slightly less than 1/10th of a pint of beer
How to fit Rak-it
Pull & go
Specially designed for speed in competition, to give you improved competition results.
Just pull your bike forward to release it from the transition rack, the built in magnets are positioned to allow a fast release but stable mount. Releasing a bike in transition mounted on the front of the saddle means a lift, push, lower and pull action which is difficult and time consuming in a busy transition area
Fits all bikes
The simple but strong fittings automatically adjusts to fit any bike saddle, allowing you have a faster transition without having to change from your favourite bike saddle on race day.
Suitable for any size bike
Fits all sizes of bike, large or small. Smaller bikes suffer with not touching the ground when racked in transition on the front of the saddle. Making them vulnerable to being knocked off in a busy transition area. Rak~it eliminates this with its rear mount and magnetic retention. No more returning and finding your bike on the floor knocked off by your competitors.
Built in magnets
Built in magnets ensure Rak~it remains firmly attached to the transition rack, making sure you return to your bike with it still where you left it. The magnets are positioned to allow a easy removal when you are trying to reduce those extra seconds in your race. Pull-and-go.
Easy to fit
Simple to fit with just two stainless steel bolts. Fitted in seconds to allow transfer across any of your bikes with the use of just one Allen key (supplied)
Ergonomic 3D printed design, with light weight rugged plastics add very little weight to your bike. Rak~it only weighs 53 grams
Easy to rack after your ride
Rak~it has a simple ergonomic design and allows for a quick rack of the bike when you return from the bike leg, with the magnets quickly grabbing the rack to hold the bike in position
