Welcome to Revo Rack
Revo rack is a completely new type of car luggage rack that virtually eliminates the risk of paint damage, caused by steel clamps or straps on the boot/trunk lid edge. No matter how careful you are when fitting a conventional rack you will at some point chip or scratch the paint. With Revo-Rack no metal touches your car only soft webbing and even softer EPDM Foam Rubber. Developed by the same team that designed the revolutionary boot-bag, Revo Rack simply straps with webbing to your cars boot/trunk lid.
We manufacture Revo Racks in the UK.
The Rack :
The rack is manufactured from 25mm 6063-T5 tubing this is an aluminium and magnesium alloy. As a result the rack weighs only 1.672kg perfect for todays aluminium and composite boot/trunk lids. The cross bars are machine welded in place to ensure consistency. We have invested significantly in tooling to create the one single upright radius.
The Supports :
The rack sits on four high density EPDM sponge rubber supports, these spread the weight evenly over the boot/trunk lid. These foam rubber supports can be placed at any point on the racks frame meaning that the rack can fit any boot/trunk lid that takes its foot print of 90x42cm / 36"x17" . The foam is incredibly dense at 130-170kg/m³ and has a tensile strength of 500kPa. Its also closed cell meaning that it won't absorb water. The foam will compress and bend instead of the boot/trunk lid making it essentially impossible to dent your boot lid. Revo Racks load carrying capacity has been rated at 20kg.
The Connectors :
Six Velcro straps attach to the rack these can rotate through 180 degrees again making universal fitting a possibility. Velcro has a strength of 13 Psi or 914 grams per square centimetre this means that the rack can technically hold a weight of over 65kg : in short its not going to come off your boot lid at high speed.
The Straps :
Three 25mm nylon webbing straps are laid out across your cars open boot/trunk these are then connected to the 30mm Italian made D rings on the end of the straps that attach to the rack. The webbing can carry a load of 500kg, its soft and once pulled tight it won't move and damage the boot/trunk lid edge. This system has already been tested on the 10,000 boot-bags sold since 2008.
