Atli RR1669C is a very well thought out, well made bike rack. It's quick and easy to install, easy to use, and looks great.
The frame holder will stay in whatever position you place it in, so you can position it before lifting the bike onto the roof. The shape of the aluminium
bottom tray isn't just designed to look good. Assuming that you are parked on the flat, or facing slightly downhill, the bike will roll forwards into the
jaws of the frame holder, i.e. less strain, better safety.
The plastic wheel holders have an edge to them so you're less likely to overlift, i.e. dump the bike beyond the bike carrier and onto the car roof.
The further the bike carrier is to the middle of the car, the bigger the lift and the bigger the stretch. When the bike frame is resting in the frame
holder you'll support it with one hand and use the other to turn the tensioning knob which is probably at shoulder level. This has a one way ratchet,
i.e. the frame holder will click shut one notch at a time, click, click, click, until the bike is held securely. This is what Atli call their "Self adjusting frame holder".
You release the ratchet with a push button; it releases entirely, making it easier to take the bike off. It comes complete with 20mm x 20mm adapters
for aluminium T-track section bars, suitable for all the Atera, CRUZ, Prorack Whispbar and Thule bars we sell. All these fittings now use an M6 fine thread.
