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.

    Poor Design

    By girafferich

    from UK

    About Me

    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

    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

    Easy to use

    By joneriffic

    About Me

    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.

    Versatile,convenient. and easy to use

    By boyntonbee

    About Me

    Comments:

    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.

    Great but the instructions are missing a key thing

    By alphazulu

    About Me

    Comments:

    At first I was ready to chuck this rack in the trash because on longer trips my bike started slowly slipping lower and lower. I nearly had a panic attack imaging my bike scattered all over the freeway. Even though my bike is well under 35lbs, the metal buckles weren't holding the straps tightly enough to keep them from slipping. But I called Saris support and they gave me great advice: Tie a knot in the two upper straps directly below the buckle and they won't slip. The knot is too fat to pass through the buckle so it'll keep everything in place. Apparently this advice is in the manual for other Solo racks, but not this one. Maybe they wanted to keep the little instruction card dead simple, but this tidbit made all the difference for me. Now I love the rack and feel totally confident using it.

    As a novice, I was so impressed with how simple the Solo was to fasten to the car by myself. Would definitely recommend.

    Works Great

    By Mando

    from Sparta, WI, United States

    About Me

    Comments:

    I drive a 1999 Saturn SL1. The SOLO bike carrier works great. It has quick release straps which make it easy to take on and off and tighten down snuggly. Also, mounting the bike and securing it are easy with the plastic straps. Overall, I find it easy to put my bike on and take off. For small cars, you will need to remove the front wheel. Orientation of the bike carrier is such that you have to mount the bicycle with the front wheel on the passenger side (right side of car). The exhaust system is on the right side of the car, so I remove the front wheel to make sure the exhaust does not melt my tire. Also, the pedals will contact the car. I orientate the pedals so that they contact the license plate.
