If you are looking to transport bikes on this system, you'll need to go for a bike carrier that either comes with or has T-track adapters available for it, as these will slot into the channel that run the length of bar and not interfere with the slide mechanism.
All of the Thule and Atera bike carriers currently on sale on our website are supplied with T-track adapters and are therefore compatible with the DropRacks system. The Yakima HighRoad and HighSpeed bike carriers will also fit with the additional SmarT-Slot kit 1 adapter set.
You'll need to use a Droprack where the cross bars are positioned suitably far apart to fit a bike carrier. Some Dropracks have cross bars that are fitted too far apart to use a bike carrier, this is usually where they fit to fixing points on a van roof. We will mention this when you select your vehicle to find out more about the Droprack application.
