Let’s Go Aero and Lippert Components have added new dimensions to cargo management with a selection of Jack-IT related products for universal modularity across ranging vehicle surfaces with the introduction of the Bump-IT, BikeBase, Hitch-IT, and BikeWing additions.
The Jack-IT is an A-frame mount two bike carrier that was released in 2016. Using the Jack-IT’s VRack design, the new family of products transform to carry two bicycles in what has been unused space on a variety of RV travel trailer, cargo trailer, and passenger vehicle surfaces.
Let’s Go Aero’s VRack technology has two adjustable arms that securely grip two bicycles by the wheels on each side of the V in a motionless Zero-G state. The Zero-G four-point wheel grips adjust to securely carry all bike sizes and frame styles including beach cruiser bikes, tandems, recumbents, and adult and child bikes.
The new Bump-IT is a hitch adaptor that lets the Jack-IT owner move their bicycle rack between their travel trailer and the tow vehicle by using the modular V section of the Jack-IT called the BikeWing. Simply unbolt from the Jack-IT and re-bolt to the Bump-IT adapter that fits any receiver style tow hitch. RV travelers are able to repurpose their bicycle rack from camping to touring travel interests.
Similarly, the new BikeBase is a tube clamp device that expands the VRack mounting choices to the front of a straight or A-frame style trailer tongue, and other tubing surfaces. Simply unbolt the BikeWing from the Jack-IT, or use a new BikeWing also offered as a new accessory, and bolt the V to the BikeBase.
Rounding out the four new Jack-IT family additions is the Hitch-IT, a combined offering of the BikeBase and the BikeWing for a complete all-in-one packaged system for carrying two bikes on tow bars and tubing. Designed to address the storage needs among trailer users, Hitch-IT solves the problem of bicycles taking up disproportionate amounts of room inside trailers often used for moving or long trips entailing lots of gear. The owner is able to mount his bikes to the trailer’s drawbar instantly, thereby freeing up much needed interior space.
The Jack-It A-frame mount two bike carrier was conceived as part of a new vision for a new global line of bike and multi-sport product carriers for RV and passenger vehicles by inventor Marty Williams, co-founder and CEO of Let’s Go Aero.
“LGA works to do more with less, and the Jack-IT product line growth with LCI exemplifies this ethic clearly. Jack-IT and our new products carry outdoor lifestyle equipment in space that has always existed, but was not used,” Williams said.
The Jack-IT family of products are sold exclusively by Lippert Components to the RV OEM and automotive aftermarkets. The new Jack-IT accessories line is available starting January 2019 and will be showcased by Lippert Components at the NTP Stag show on Jan. 22 and 23 in Nashville, Tenn.
