Bontrager Back Rack II review

Everyday hauler

BikeRadar score3.5/5

The Back Rack II is highly flexible, offering clearance for mechanical disc brakes and adjustable legs to fit both mountain and road bikes. There’s even a second set of struts supplied for smaller frames.

It’s made from aluminium and the wide platform mixes well with Trek’s – they own Bontrager – Interchange range of panniers and other luggage.

However, there’s no recommended load rating and it’s not the stiffest of designs. We’d earmark it for commuting, moderate touring and light off-road use but, to its credit, it held up fine on a bumpy tour of Cambodia’s back roads.
