Whispbar WB201 Bike Carrier ($299*)

*Freight +$15

The Whispbar WB201 wheel-on bike carrier is the new king of bike carriers. It can be fitted to any roof rack with a T-channel within seconds, straight out of the box. To provide a stable platform for your bike.

The wheels are secured with tough straps that use a pump buckle for an excellent grip and the frame is held firmly but gently by the central arm. The WB201 comes with 2 lengths of straps to allow for deep and shallow rim depths.

Folds flat when not in use to minimise drag.

Gentle but firm clamping around the frame supports the bike. Ideal for frames where the cables run on the underside and top side of the down tube as there is no contact in this area.

Clamping operation is worked low down on the unit at a convenient height. The claws self adjust to give just enough pressure to hold the bike without damage.

Single key lock secures both the carrier to your roof racks and your bike to the carrier.

What Steve thinks...... Like Whispbar's sister product the WB200 (fork mount) bike carrier, there is a lot to like about the WB201 wheel-on bike carrier. I just love the quick dock system which works well and really does allow fitting to your cross bars in seconds. The claw that clamps to your bike frame works really well. In the shop we often clamp it around our forearm to demonstrate how precise the clamping force is around your bike's frame. On my own mountain bike I have cables running on the underside of the down tube and I like the way these are not clamped against the frame as they would be with an up-down clamp rather than a side-side claw.

The WB201 is the most expensive roof-mount bike carrier that we sell but I also reckon it's the best.
