THE NEW SPARK
New updated features
The New Generation Spark is the best product of our platform range. You will get a full set of updated features at a very affordable price. And let’s be honest, its fresh new styling really looks good!
Adapted especially for European style tow ball set-ups. And now with increased gap between the bikes and an increase of weight carrying capacity to 55kg. Several other new improvements have been made. This rack will also carry some e-bikes.
TOW BALL ATTACHMENT
The patented cam lever attachment system fits onto all ISO 50mm diameter swan neck tow balls. It can fit a UK High Rise tow ball on a flat tongue (a spacer might need to be added). Please ask for details. Simple, fast and secure.
The system can be locked and secured by a locking pin.
This system is one of the few that can pass the highest safety standards.
TOW BALL ADJUSTMENT
Some 50mm tow balls have different neck sizes. This system has an easy adjustment button that will increase the tightening force.
The fully adjustable wheel holders will accommodate all wheelbases, from very small children’s bikes to the longer wheel base downhill bikes.
The ratchet straps allow a quick and secure attachment of the wheels.
The straps are long enough to hold medium to large tyres/rims. Longer ratchet straps for fat Bikes are available as an accessory.
The clamps are big enough to fit most bike frames and can be positioned any where on the rack support frame.
Made of reinforced Nylon, the clamps are highly resistant.
An integrated pad prevents scratching the bike paint and allow most brakes cables to go through.
Each clamp is equipped with a locking knob.
Genuinely easy to tilt, well balanced during the tilting phase,and tilts far enough for tail gate access.
In the case of some very specific cars, the boot will not open fully (where bottom of door & tow ball are at a similar height).
Spark carriers are supplied with standard 5 function lights and a 13 pin round plug.
The light plate can be folded to allow easier storage.
The product is supplied with a 13 to 7 pin round plug. In some case, the fog and reverse lights won’t work. This can be changed to a 7 pin flat plug for a small fee.
It is very easy to install the license plate or remove it if you use the Spark on different vehicles. A 'Supplementary Plate' is available from www.licensys.com.
Size does matter. So the new SPARK 3 has been made more compact in order to fit in most car boots.
