PARAX - the most elegant bike rack // MADE IN GERMANY

€12,549

The modern bicycle is a true piece of craftsmanship and meets the rider’s expectations in style, functionality and sustainability. The D-RACK matches your bike in all these qualities. It is entirely designed and produced in Germany using high quality materials. Due to its local manufacturing process colors and length can be custom-made. The unique drilling template allows mounting your bike horizontally even though its top tube may not be.
 

 The D-RACK is made of premium-quality and durable materials. Its aluminum body is cut using advanced CNC machining techniques. 

We can anodize your rack so that it's color scheme matches your bike! Current colors are: raw, silver, brushed silver, black and brushed black. Further colors will be introduced as stretch goals. You can choose your color after the kickstarter campaign!

We offer different lengths to make sure that your bike hangs as close to the wall as possible.

In order to protect the frame of your bike when you place it on the rack, we shielded the edges using a silicone strip. We use extra robust and anti-skid silicone and firmly attach it to the aluminum profile.

Currently you can choose between black and red protectors. Further colors will be introduced as stretch goals. You choose your color after the Kickstarter campaign.

We designed a separate mount to securely fasten your D-RACK to the wall. It is precisely CNC-milled and will be anodized in your favored color. The wall mount comes in the same color as the body.

Mounting your bike exactly horizontal

With the included drilling template the angle of the D-RACK can be adjusted based on the angle of the top tube - without using any spirit level! This ensures that the wheels end up even. 

If you order a D-RACK you will get a package including

- a D-RACK in your chosen color and length with edge protection in your favored color
- a wall mount in the same color as the D-RACK
- mounting accessories including screws, screw anchors, offset screwdrivers and torx bit
- a drilling template.

Optional extras are
- a wooden front panel made of olive or Kebony wood
- a leather strap
- a PARAX T-Shirt
- Mini D-RACKs.

We produce the D-RACK exclusively in Germany. Due to its entirely local manufacturing process, its carefully selected and sturdy materials, its modern timeless design and its outstanding durability the D-RACK is a green product. We even rank under the top ten of the GreenTec Awards!

Risks and challenges

Our first challenge is to make sure that our project gets the exposure it needs to be successfully funded. We are going to be working with several blogs to help us get noticed. We are also counting on the support of our backers to help us spread the word.

Another big risk and challenge is being able to fulfill the orders we receive in a timely manner. We spent the last one and a half years making sure that we found the right manufacturing partners. These companies have been in business for decades, providing mass scale manufacturing for thousands of companies. We look forward to adding our company to the list.
