About

EZ Recreational Rack - or 'EZ Rec Rack' is a simple, yet revolutionary rooftop gear loader for your vehicle. Designed to be operated by a single person while cutting the lifted weight in half, this patented Rack is an end-all solution for any outdoor adventurer. 

Traditional roof racks have one single flaw: they're not easy to use.  With a multitude of clamps, levers, snaps and ratchets, the typical roof rack has many moving parts that can easily break. Furthermore, you still have to crawl all over your car to secure your cargo once you finally get it up there ( I can hear your back hurting from here ). 

EZ Rec Rack is the perfect solution to that problem.  It allows you to secure your cargo on the ground and then swiftly load it from the rear of the vehicle. One person is all you need.

Powder-coated high grade aluminum in our design makes it weatherproof, allowing our rack to be light enough to lift, but still sturdy. The light weight aspect of the rack won't overload the factory crossbars on your vehicle, allowing you to load more!

Tired of asking strangers to help you load your kayak at the lake? No worries. 

Since you can secure your cargo on the ground (or adjust the kickstand to change the angle of attack), soon the same strangers will be asking you, "Where did you get that?" 

                 Hopefully, by that time you will be on your way to your next destination!

Loading any kayak, bike or SUP will become a breeze, allowing you more time on the water and less hassle on the ground.

Most attachments currently available on the market can be secured to the EZ Rec Rack System, so there's no need to replace any of your existing gear. Simply transfer it over and hit the road! 

How to you secure the EZ Rec Rack to the top of your vehicle? With the use of EZ Brackets our Rack can be attached to most roof rail shapes currently on the market. 

                           Only 8 bolts stand between you and hassle-free roof loading.

 Building upon our dependable concept, we wanted to strengthen the overall design to allow even heavier loads to be lifted (especially fishing kayaks). To ensure the life of our product, we have designed heavily stressed parts of the rack to be easily replaceable; should any damage occur, we simply replace the worn part instead of replacing the entire rack.

Other major updates include:

  • New and improved track wheels
  • Heavier gauge Aluminum walls
  • Heavy-Duty rear axle support bar (for heavier loads like fishing and sea kayaks)
  • All New (replaceable) stainless steel pivoting hardware 
  • All New 316 stainless steel wheel axles  

EZ Rec Rack System is the only rear-loading design currently on the market. With less moving parts and a multitude of attachment positions EZ Rec Rack can handle most of what you can throw at it. 

All these updates along with market attachment compatibility make EZ Rec Rack the end-all solution for the lakes and trails allowing the user to mix and match.  Let the EZ Rec Rack system help you spend less time loading and more time doing what you love.

Making a difference and feeling the love. 

Although the EZ Rec Rack System is relatively new, we've already made a splash on the American market and have many loyal and satisfied customers! Nothing brings a bigger smile to our collective faces than EZ Rec Rack users sharing their stories with us, or simply giving us a perfect review during one of our presentations. Take Rick, who suffered a shoulder injury and lost most of the lifting power in his left arm seen here loading an 87 lb kayak:

We want you to become a member of the #EZRackFamily and help spread the idea of back pain-free loading wherever the road may take you. You will soon become the talk of the marina!

  What's the advantage of using the EZ Rec Rack System? Simply put - Physics.  Because the rack basically works as a teeter-totter, the higher you place the weight, the easier it is to lift.  The longer your kayak is, and the higher it extends over the pivot-point, the better! The load works as a counter-weight, helping you lift it along the way. It's like having an invisible friend at all times, making loading possible with only one person.

EZ Rec Rack of course comes with accessories of its own. Specifically designed to aid in more controlled loading and transportation, the EZ Bunks and Spacers help to center your kayak in the Rack and keep it supported for a smooth drive.  

The Spacers also work in accommodating a certain type of rear hatch that tends to interfere with the operation of the Rack (if part of the roof opens along with the hatch). The Spacers lift the back end of the EZ Rec Rack allowing you to open your rear hatch freely. Finding solutions for best possible EZ Rec Rack operation is always our priority

Risks and challenges

We need your support in order to turn this endeavor into a national company. We need capital in order to secure parts and manufacturers. We have storage buildings and manufacturers waiting in the wings for the go-ahead. We've been on the market for about two years and have had a great response so far. Building upon these fundamentals the HD EZ Rec Rack will be the strongest, most versatile design to date. We are always listening to our customers to develop the best product to meet their needs. By releasing this new and improved 'HD' version, we believe we have accomplished that goal.
We know that no product is perfect for everyone and that the needs of people may differ. We are committed to help each person overcome any unforeseen challenges that might arise.
