Atoc's unique pivoting system works with tandems, recumbent bikes, and single bikes, and allows:
Easy one person loading (even for a small person)
Fast - takes less than one minute
No greasy chains to reach around
No heavy or awkward lifting--You never lift more than 1/2 your tandem's weight
Tandem Topper stabilizes the tandem for you while loading and unloading
No contact points to damage your tandem's finish
Fits most roof rail systems: Yakima and Thule compatible mounting clips come standard.
Works with most vehicles - small, large, short, or tall. It needs a mere 22" minimum load bar spacing
Only 5 1/2" wide ... which means you can carry lots of bikes (or other stuff)
Tandem Topper's unique design protects your vehicle and bike from dents and scratches. Tandem Topper's rear section easily disconnects, allowing your hatchback to fully open ... without damage.
The DV comes with extra long wheel tray (82" max. wheelbase).
A breeze to install!
