Colorado Springs, Colo.-based Let’s Go Aero said it has evolved its V-Rack line of bike carriers as combination bike and boat models with the addition of its Nelson Cradle Add-on accessory option for transporting boats, kayaks, paddle boards, or surfboards above the truck bed on select Nelson Multi-Sport Carriers.
The new Nelson 2-Boat Cradle mounts two boats, kayaks, or other watercraft above the truck bed, leaving the interior of the bed free for more summer gear and adventure sport equipment. Mounted to the base of the Nelson, this new cradle add-on carries boats up to 12 feet through a combination of the padded cradle that balances the center bottom of the hull and secures the front and rear half of the hull diagonally along each V-Rack arm with cam-locking straps and the Nelson Tie-off kit.
“It’s all about being able to cleanly organize, store and transit lifestyle product without using the interior of the truck bed,” said Marty Williams, Let’s Go Aero’s CEO. “With our Nelson carriers, we took gear management to a second level by mounting bikes, awnings and fishing rod holders above the truck bed side sill in previously unused space. With the addition of our new Nelson Boat and Kayak Cradle Mount we are broadening the function and value of our Nelson truck bed rack line in a revolutionary new way.”
