About

Ultix Tair Rack is an innovative inflatable car roof rack made of bike inner tube. It allows you to transport any sports equipment and bulky cargo easily on any vehicle. It takes just 5 minutes or less to install Tair Rack and it is entirely portable. All you need is to fold it up to a shoebox-size and store in the trunk of your car. 

Ultix Tair Rack merges functionality and convenience to deliver premium quality results.It’s a fantastic roof rack that can be used to transport windsurf gear, kite gear, paddle boards, surfboards, sports gear, furniture and more. 

It’s a unique product and different from all roof racks you've ever seen. 

Inspired by our favorite mode of transportation, we made it with the inner tube which has a stronger bearing capacity, to prevent deform and air-leakage.

It can be inflated quickly and easily by using a standard pump. Fortunately, the pressurized air tube provides ample support for the cargo without adding the weight to the car. 

Regular pump required only for inflating. You don’t need any tools! No adapters! Neither crossbars nor rails for the setup.  

Tair Rack is perfect for transporting items like windsurf gear, kiteboarding gear, kayaks paddleboards, surfboards, snowboards, skiboards, sports gear, furniture and more.

Unlike most metal roof bars, Tair Rack is not limited to few car models.It is designed to fit most type of car models. Tair Rack is an ideal choice for those who don’t want to install a permanent metal roof rack. 

Ultix Tair Rack is totally portable, extremely easy to store and always there when you need it most. Packing size is smaller than a shoebox. When deflated, Ultix Tair is small enough to store in the trunk.  

Ultix Tair Rack is made from extremely tough materials. We do not relent to give you the best. The nylon cover provides ultimate protection without scratching the car roof, and the straps made of seat belts ensure an unbreakable use with more stability.

Risks and challenges

Throughout the past year, we have been working around the clock in refining our designs. Numerous prototypes have been developed, and countless hours have been spent making sure that we will be as good as we intend it to be.

There are always challenges and unforeseen obstacles that arise when trying to bring a product to life. Fortunately, after extensive research, we have established a good relationship with a manufacturer that has many years of experience in the field and is able to work to our exact specifications.

During the production process, we expect to make minor changes to optimize the design for mass production.

We will be using a professional fulfillment company to handle the logistics of shipping, in order to ensure that that side of the operation is well covered.

If any issues arise, we'll contact you as timely and openly as possible.

Long-lasting design

I've designed my project by bike inner tube, which has stronger bearing capacity, to prevent deform and air-leakage. So Tair Rack can be used for many years, talking 15+ years - you don't have to worry about them dry rotting, cracking, or loosing structural integrity, which helps the rack long-lasting use.

Reusability and recyclability

We choose the reusable inner tube to our rack, it has strong capacity to make sure the durable use, and also, after not in use or broken, the inner tube is easy to be reused, designed to create new items, like wallet, handbag or others, it won’t be wasted.

Sustainable materials

The Tair Rack uses bike tube as the inner tank, which is durable and strong, even the nylon cover is broken, the Tair Rack could be used continously just when you replace the cover. Even you have extra or non used bike tube, you can also put them inside the cover to make a new one.

Environmentally friendly factories

Before selecting the factory, our production department will conduct on-the-spot investigations. Before we did the test products, we have visited 3 factories and finally choose the one with a  good reputation in the industry. We considered the pollution that may occur during production and after the production how to process the pollution discharges according to the regional regulations. And we are quite satisfied with the factory and considering to cooperate with them for the mass production.

Sustainable fulfillment and distribution

We think of the use of recyclable materials as packaging materials for our products, and we will try to use less packaging materials to ensure environmental protection during the delivery process.
