The SeaSucker Talon Single Bike Rack
The SeaSucker Talon is our go anywhere single bike rack; use it on almost any car with ease. It’s small enough to be taken on board a plane as carry on board luggage. That's ideal for cycling holidays when hiring a car at your destination.
The SeaSucker Talon can be installed in under two minutes and removed in seconds; no tools required. Its ultra-low profile minimizes wind noise and provides more clearance to fit under carports and garages. It fits easily inside the boot of your car when not in use.
The SeaSucker Talon is a 1 bike fork-mounted bike rack and uses our incredibly strong 152 mm vacuum mounts each rated to 90 kg direct pull strength. Secure your bike to the roof of your car without the hassle of a permanent bike rack. It can also be mounted on your boot, rear window or your SUV’s back glass. The SeaSucker Vacuum Mounts are non-marking, UV and weather resistant, and hold exceptionally well to glass, metal or fibreglass surfaces.
The 19 mm High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) “L” shaped body conforms to your car’s roof-line. The SeaSucker Talon has three 152 mm SeaSucker vacuum mounts secured to the main board with marine-grade stainless steel hardware. Packing a combined direct pull strength of 360 kg the SeaSucker Talon has plenty of muscle and in-built redundancy.
Included in the kit is one Rear Wheel Strap (152 mm SeaSucker Vacuum Mount with moulded housing and double-sided Velcro strap). It secures your bike’s rear wheel and keeps it from sliding left or right.
The SeaSucker Talon comes with one non-lockable quick release fork mount; once adjusted you can release and secure your bike in seconds. Some minor assembly is required. The supplied tools are: Allen/hex Key; and a 7/16″ spanner.
