AUXX SAFETY STRAPS
The purpose of the AUXX Safety Straps is to prevent excessive shock loading to your tow bar bracket, which may occur due to whip action when the vehicle is in motion. Whenever carrying more than 2 bicycles *(or carrying 2 E-Bikes), two AUXX Safety Straps must be used, which is why a set of two straps is supplied with every 3, 4 or 5 Bicycle MaxxRaxx.
*PLEASE NOTE YOU MUST PURCHASE THE AUXX SAFETY STRAP KIT WITH A 2 BICYCLE CYCLE CARRIER (NOT INCLUDED AS STANDARD) IF YOU ARE CARRYING MORE THAN ONE E-BIKE.
Now available in an optional DayGlo kit, these AUXX Safety Straps stand out and provide a further safety option for your MAXXRAXX Cycle Carrier. And, to be fair, they look pretty funky!
Your cycle carrier load needs to be steady and safe when the vehicle is in motion. Especially when you are adding a weight to the rear of your vehicle and the tow bar. The level of force that can be exerted whilst your vehicle is in motion, depending on the road conditions and quality of the road, is 4 to 5 times the force when stationary. As the MAXXRAXX design creates a cantilever force, we have designed the perfect equipment to reduce the total amount of flex created. The AUXX Safety Strap Kit is provided in all 3 to 5 bicycle cycle carriers and allows you to contribute to the safety, stability and lifetime of the cycle carrier, the tow bar and the vehicle.
The AUXX Safety Straps come as a pair to be fitted in a triangular shape from the cycle carrier to the vehicle. Fitted correctly, they will provide a resistance to the cantilever force exerted on the tow bar during motion. MaxxRaxx insists that these Straps must be used whilst carrying 2 E-Bikes and or more than 2 bicycles. You must also use the AUXX Safety Strap Kit when towing and carrying 2 bicycles or more whilst using the MAXXRAXX Carrying Height Extension (20ET40 or 20ET42 supplied with).
