Sport-Pack Offers 3-in-One Cargo Carrying Convenience
SportRackSTERLING HEIGHTS, MI - SportRack Automotive introduces Smart-Pack(tm), the most versatile and practical platform carrier system available. Smart-Pack is an open platform carrier, a bicycle carrier and an enclosed carrier - all in one.

"We identified a significant number of consumers in need of a versatile platform system capable of handling any manner of gear that might be too large or bulky to fit in a regular enclosed carrier," said Richard Borghi, president and COO, SportRack Automotive. "Perhaps they're carrying a couple of bicycles, as well as coolers - but don't need all the space of a trailer. We offer the Smart-Pack for people seeking this kind of simple convenience."

SportRack's three-in-one carrier can carry up to three bicycles, while its heavy-duty tray design protects gear from road debris and water spray.

Optional features include a soft-top weather resistant enclosure, a rear stop taillight package, cargo rack, bicycle mounts, rooftop system compliant bars and B-line metal framing system hardware for custom applications.

Smart-Pack is best used in conjunction with the Twin-Tube frame-and-spine system, also from SportRack. Designed as a revolutionary system for attaching hitch-mounted accessories into a 2" or 1 1/4" receiver, Twin-Tube currently accommodates the Smart-Pack and a growing number of SportRack Automotive accessories. The universal bracket system eliminates the need to convert mounting hardware each time you change cargo carriers - saving valuable time and reducing hassle.

An original invention of Sport Performance Carrier(r) manufacturer Let's Go Aero (LGA), the Smart-Pack (called Triple-Play(tm) under LGA) was recently licensed to SportRack Automotive in an agreement with LGA. Under terms of the deal, SportRack Automotive now holds exclusive OEM rights to the Smart-Pack technology.

Headquartered in Sterling Heights, Mich., SportRack Automotive (SRA) is a global leader in the supply of roof rack systems and lifestyle accessory products to the global automotive OEM and aftermarket. SRA has additional North American operations in Port Huron, Shelby Township, and Sterling Heights, Mich.; Williston, Vt.; Hamer Bay, Ontario; and Granby, Quebec. SportRack's European operations are headquartered in Sandhausen, Germany, and also include manufacturing facilities in Bakov, Czech Republic and Barcelona, Spain. The Smart-Pack will be produced at the SportRack Accessories facility in Granby, Quebec.
