rear carriers

Thank you for your interest in our Tubus carriers. We would like to inform you that, temporary, slight increases in the carrier net weights may occur for some models. This does not effect the design and quality of the carrier.


Chromoly. This material is often used, especially when it really matters: In automobile and aircraft engineering, and for numerous tubus carriers. Our chromoly offers an enormous tensile strength: more than 700 N/mm², and in addition, excellent welding properties, that we turn into excellent carrier properties.

Stainless steel
Stainless steel is frequently referred to as corrosion-free steel. However, the more correct definition would be: corrosion-resistant steel. Under extreme conditions, flash corrosion might, in some places, even occur on our stainless steel racks. This is, however, not a severe problem; a little polishing job and your rack will shine again — for a lifetime. No coating needed.

Titanium is employed in all areas that require highest strength-to-weight ratio, as for example in aerospace industry. Titanium has some very useful properties: it is resistant to most organic acid and alkaline solutions, diluted saline and nitric acids, and to corrosion. At least in temperatures up to 880 °C. This makes our titanium racks the functional non plus ultra for trips to the Polar Circle and the Death Valley.
