Seasucker makes bike racks with a unique suction-cup security system. At the UCI world championships that concluded Sunday with Peter Sagan taking his third road title, Seasucker provided racks for all the countries and neutral support.
Seasucker has a new 9-bike team rack that the company used earlier this year at Paris-Roubaix and other races with the WorldTour pro team Quick Step. That rack design saw peloton-wide use at the world championships.
Most cyclists have the same skeptical reaction to the Seasucker suction cups initially: ‘I don’t think I would trust my bike on that. Won’t it come off?‘
Thus, Seasucker staff were keen to show off the full-car team rack over the notoriously rough cobbles of Paris-Roubaix.
Now, race fans will be seeing a lot more of Seasucker, as the company has a three-year contract with the UCI to provide racks for all the vehicles in world road championships events.
How the Seasucker mount works
Each of the Seasucker suction pods are rated for a 200lb / 90kg load.
The pods can be put on any nearly flat clean surface of a car’s exterior. To get it to stick, you depress a small integrated pump repeatedly until the orange portion of the pump is concealed inside the pod.
