Product Details

Saris Solo

Easy to mount and a cinch to store in the back of your car, Saris’ Solo is a low-profile rack for peace-of-mind convenience. Solo’s uni-body frame has no adjustable parts, which makes it a no-brainer to set up. With its soft, rubber, pivoting feet and four hold-down straps, the Solo safely and securely attaches to your car. Two strong buckles and an integrated anti-sway strap keep your bike in place. As an added bonus, the Solo is built with 100% recyclable, non-rusting materials.

    Great rack, but one small problem...

    By jdizzle

    Comments:

    I bought this rack for my 2005 Scion xB. Wanting to center the rack on the hatch, I mounted it so that the two upper contacts were on the rear window and the two lower contacts were between the rear wiper and the license plate. To what I attribute to the effect of having no side straps to prevent lateral movement, the lower contacts have created marks on the paint that I going to try and buff out. I was hesitant to mount the racks will all four contact on the rear glass, but I don't want any further damage to the paint. I use the rack for my carbon fiber road bike so I don think the weight should be an issue. My main hesitation is that the rack does bounce a bit on uneven roads and potholes that I try my best to avoid, but not all are avoidable, and I don't want to risk breaking the rear window. For that reason, I give the Solo 2 stars.

    A solid reliable solution to adifficult challenge

    By LesD

    Comments:

    All of my bike carrying chores to date have been solved by a Saris bike rack that mounts to a frame mounted receiver. However, my new car, electric, does not accept a receiver mount because of the battery. The Solo solves the problem. It is easy -- well straight forward -- to install and holds a single road bike rock solid.

    Not bad!

    Comments:

    I haven't had the chance to use it for a real road trip yet but the first thing I did when it came in was to install it on my car, load my bike on it and take a little spin. I chose some of our rougher roads to travel and the bike seemed very secure. It takes a little effort to fit to my Rendevous but once on it hangs tight and keeps the bike away from the car far enough to save my paint.

    Perfect for Me

    By 4ahouston

    Comments:

    I was extremely worried that my bike was going to hit my car (I have a 2014 Jetta sedan and didn't see to purchase the buffer pads until after the fact). The pedal hits the license plate (no problem for me), and the tire touch point is the brake light, so no bike to car paint contact -- phew! Super light and small -- easy for me to stow in the trunk when not in use. For the price, highly recommended. Definitely tie knots close to the strap buckles to prevent slack.

    Very Happy With It

        Comments:

        Bought this to drag my daughter's bike back to college. An 1100 mile trip and the bike was remarkably stable as was the rack. I did remove the left pedal because it would have scratched the car (I could have put an old sock on it instead), but the mounts are stable and the extra frame strap made the bike even more stable. The rack did NOT damage the paint. It is small enough to remove and throw into the trunk of her Mazda 3 sedan with lots of room to spare.

        Poor Design

        Comments:

        The plastic frame flexes when you go round corners and roundabouts which makes the feet slip, it's a total nightmare. Also the rubber feet don't look like they'll scratch you paintwork but somehow they do! I regret ever fitting this to my car (Mini Cooper)

        Light weight accessory

        About Me Fitness Enthusiast

        Comments:

        I bought this for my wife (X-mas) and she was hesitant about it on her Rogue. The straps do fit over the rear wind draft spoiler and it is light weight not to put undo stress on it. She had trouble the first few times loading it up, but it is an easy to learn system. Perhaps velcro strapping instead of plastic, we'll see how the wear-and-tear hold up over the season

        I am a working mom on the go whose SUV needs to be ready for kids, clients, or every so often - some me time in the form of a bike ride - all at a moments notice. The Solo fits perfectly in the back of my SUV, or on the back of my SUV - as needed and also at a moments notice. It's compact and stows neatly yet in a few moments can be mounted perfectly with the adjustable straps on the back of my car quickly and easily, with pedals safely away from my car.

        Easy to use

        Comments:

        Drove across the country with this. Only wish the bottom of the bike could have been easily secured so it wasn't bouncing against my bumper the whole way. A little irritating to try to use the trunk with it attached. For a removable trunk rack, this is all to be expected and this rack worked very well.
