Mountain Bike Accessories

You’ve put a lot of time and effort into selecting the perfect mountain bike, it’s time to figure out how to get it on the mountain as much as possible. The formula is simple; first you get a tonneau cover and roof racks for your truck and then add a bike rack and anything you need to take care of your bike. Then all that’s left is to plan your route and hit the road! Get started with your mountain bike accessories dreams with Renegade.

Aero Bars, a Flexible Accessory

Renegade modeled its Aero Bars after high-end bike racks that are sold for car rooftops, so accessories you already have and love will probably fit Renegade’s universal Aero Bars. It’s easy to attach your roof top bike rack and bike, so you can spend more time on the mountain.

Plus your Aero Bars can be used with other rooftop accessories, like a roof box, ski racks, fishing pole racks, kayak racks, just about anything can attach to these excellent bars.

Bike Rack

Renegade Covers doesn’t sell a bike rack, because we’re not mountain bike experts, we’re truck bed cover experts! So we created our Aero Bars to function with just about any bike rack, you know, the one you already love.

If you’re looking for a new bike rack to pair with your Aero Bars, you might enjoy the Yakima FrontLoader, a wheel mounted bike rack. This is a universal, upright rack that doesn’t make any contact with your frame, but is easy to use and super secure.

On the other hand, if you want to keep the top of your Renegade Cover free, for hauling lumber for summer projects (and so much more), you can also utilize a hitch rack. Whether you go with Yakima or Thule, excellent options abound.

RipTide Muddy Bike Accessories

Another awesome accessory for mountain bikers is Renegade’s Pressurized Water System, the Riptide. This is a simple way to keep your bike clean after a muddy or dusty ride.

Rather than a harsh spray of water, the RipTide is gentle enough to act as a hand washing station, is good for cleaning just-caught fish or hunting tools, and are crucial for muddy paws. The RipTide can be mounted to your truck or kept portable, and is available in a variety of sizes.

This rolling truck bed cover was previously only available in Canada, but starting in January, RealTruck (which used to be called Truck Hero) is bringing it to the USA.

It’s pretty great that it features a quick-release handle and multiple locking positions. This model starts at $1099. ()

7. Leer Retractable Tonneau Covers

Leer features electric retractable tonneau covers that feature flush mounting and sometimes even rails. While they utilize various materials, including aluminum, they lack any significant weight-bearing capacity. The big goal here is to have a slick electric operation, and perhaps this is just in contrast Leer’s many other options, like truck caps. Leer’s retractable covers start as low as $1,340.

6. Peragon Truck Bed Cover

Rather than utilizing a canister, this retractable tonneau cover hides in the last 6 inches of the truck bed. Plus, it can be quickly removed if you need to load something big into your truck bed. The central location of Peragon’s Wisconsin manufacturing facility is crucial for their ability to offer free shipping. This lockable (with a key) cover starts at $999.

5. TonnoPro TonnoFold Tonneau Cover

A soft tri-folding cover is another way to go if you’re looking for a cheaper option and only anticipate light rain or snow.

Starting at $269, TonnoPro is offering a unique product to the industry.

4. BakFlip F1 Tonneau Cover

Unlike many alternatives, this BakFlip model is made of composite material. With a 400 lb. weight bearing capacity, this is a hard, tri-fold tonneau cover that sits flush on your truck.

3. TruXedo TruXport

TruXedo provides this roll-up tonneau cover that features a top mount design, leather fabric, and pre-set tension control. This economical design lacks many features, but it starts at just $299. Note that water is meant to pool on this cover, but it won’t fade in the sun.

Taking things in another direction, BrandFX creates tonneau covers from steel, focused on the needs of contractors and service professionals. Formerly known as GEMTOP, BrandFX designs tonneau covers with aluminum framed lift doors that open the full length of your truck bed, on either side. How much do they cost and how can you get one? That’s anybody’s guess.
