STAG Rack | Ski or Bike with Any Car

$19,092

58

We've created the STAG Rack with multi-sport athletes like YOU in mind. With interchangeable sport attachments, it allows you to ski, bike, or snowboard with just a single rack on any car! Turn your ‘commuter’ into an adventure car, and get to the mountain or your favorite riding spot quickly and securely. 

We know- vacuum cups? Are they strong enough? We've tested our vacuum cups extensively and can assure that the 1600+ pounds of certified pull strength is plenty strong! In rain, snow, or extreme heat these cups aren't going to budge- also, we have a 1-year warranty to back up our claim!

Don’t want to buy several roof racks?

Introducing the first ever interchangeable roof rack, we've got you covered. The STAG Rack was created for multi-sport athletes like you to securely carry your skis, snowboards, road or mountain bikes for all adventures (with additional attachments coming soon).

For the athlete who can't choose just one sport

The average roof rack offers a single attachment for only one sport- but you aren’t average. You like to do it all. Hit the slopes on a ‘sick day’ from the office or bike from Seattle to Portland with a group of friends - we've got you covered!

Adventure is a short drive away, get there with any car

We made this product with you in mind. We also know that not everyone has a vehicle that can fit skis, board, and bikes in it. Gone are the days where that’s an issue - with STAG any car becomes an adventure car.

1600 reasons your rack won't fly off

Trust us, this rack isn’t going anywhere. Each vacuum cup has 200+ lbs of pull, and all that combined will give you peace of mind with over 1600+ lbs of pull strength. Think of it this way, if these vacuum cups can support the average smart car, they can definitely support your mountain bike. Yes, even your ‘beefy’ downhill setup will be safe. Here is how much we trust our vacuum cups:

We freed up a seat for Chad

In the past, a standard sedan would really only fit 3 people because a seat would have to be down in order to fit all of your gear. Nowadays, that really isn’t an issue. With your boards, skis, or bikes on top of your car, you now have all of your seats available for your friends. You’re welcome, Chad.

"Which car are we taking?"

The real question is which do you want to drive? Without having to worry about seats folding down and making space, you can really take whatever car you want. Your car? Perfect! This car? Works great. That car? Absolutely.

Tools required for assembly? No way!

Ditch the instruction manual and the (seemingly) thousands of tools needed to install your roof rack. With STAG you can avoid the hassle. NO TOOLS ARE REQUIRED FOR INSTALLATION! We figured it was time to make getting your gear to your destination as easy as possible. 

Take back your gas mileage

Buick just ran a study showing roof rails reduce your MPG by 7% alone, and an empty ski rack takes 3-5 MPG off your car while driving around- yuck! Not only are weekend warriors leaving their racks on 24/7, but they're throwing money out the window. Being able to take the STAG Rack off in less than a minute, and put it back on in less than two will not only alleviate the hassle of taking racks on and off, but will significantly reduce your gas bill.

On top of the base unit and 2 sports attachments, each STAG Rack will come standard with an in-window cable locking system and a 1-year manufacturing/quality warranty. 

FULL-SEND TRIP WITH OUR AUSSIE FRIEND ALEX CLAPIN

Does a 6-day tour of Perth, Australia with a GoPro Ambassador sound like fun to you? How about if you surf, sky-dive, kiteboard, mountain bike, snorkel and have a blast the entire time? If you’re someone who craves adrenaline and a little getaway, this is for you! Maybe you’ve always looked for an incredible opportunity to go on adventure, but never been able to find one… look no further!

Alex Clapin (@alexclapin) lives the life we all wish we had – from spending 6 months in the US touring and snowboarding all over the country, to surfing perfect waves in Indonesia and taking incredible videos for GoPro, he’s done it all. He’ll be your personal guide for portions of the trip as you navigate through an unforgettable journey in Australia. We’ll work around your schedule to find a date that works for all parties – get ready for the TIME OF YOUR LIFE! Now, we get it – you might have questions. This trip is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and you’re truly getting an unbelievable value with Alex in your 6-day tour guide, but, if you have any questions about the trip feel free to shoot us an email (team@stagrack.com). 

Trip includes free: flights, housing, transportation, and all sports fees. Cheers!

Risks and challenges

We’re excited to launch the STAG Rack, the first ever roof rack of its kind. Luckily for us, it’s already a functioning prototype and far from just an idea or concept! No one wants to see a good idea executed poorly, so we've worked extremely hard to prepare our product for Kickstarter launch and full production.

We have agreements in place with our manufacturers and suppliers and are ready to order once the funds have been received. However, there still might be a risk of delay due to unforeseen circumstances, since production is a time where there can easily be some challenges. If needed, we will provide updates and keep all backers involved in the flow of information. If something arises, we will be prepared to tackle these challenges because of the quality suppliers that we have selected to ensure the best product possible.

Our sole goal with the STAG Rack is to safely and securely get your gear wherever you are going. The founders are just as excited to use their rack as anyone else, so we will make sure that everything we do is 100% trustworthy. Trust us, we won’t rest until the STAG Rack is delivered at your door!
