Introducing Nelson™, the innovative Level2 pickup truck bed bicycle transport system from Let’s Go Aero. Designed with Let's Go Aero's authentic VRack™ technology, four Nelson model offerings carry bikes and other gear above the truck bed, while leaving the bed fully open for other cargo. With four models in the line, each Nelson bed mount has a modular and removable V shaped rack called a SpinWing™ for carrying two bikes. The SpinWing turns 360 degrees for easy loading and unloading. The four-point adjustable wheel grip will hold any size bicycle or frame style and provides Zero-G™ stability for smooth transportation. The anti-theft RingLocker™ security system secures each bike to the Nelson and the Nelson mounting system securely to the truck bed.
Nelson models have varying configurations for vehicle fit on both domestic and import truck beds to meet your specific transportation, storage and organization needs. Two models in the line include added carrying capacity for up to six bicycles using the SpinWing Expansion Kits available for accessory add-on.
The Half Nelson
The Half Nelson™ truck bed mount carrier securely holds two bicycles above the passenger side wall of the pick-up truck bed. The SpinWing completely rotates, enabling easy access to each bike from the truck bed or the ground. Based on the V shaped design, with two removable support arms, the SpinWing can hold two bicycles of any size or frame design up to a combined weight of 70 lbs. The Zero-G stability system firmly holds each bike while the adjustable pads and straps prevent bike to bike or rack contact. The RingLocker security system gives you peace of mind knowing your equipment is secure and save. All of this while keeping the truck bed clear for other gear. The Half Nelson comes in two models: the Half Nelson for domestic truck beds including Dodge, Chevrolet and Ford, and the Half Nelson Channel model made for Nissan Utili-Track, Toyota Deck Rail, Jeep Trail Rail and other vehicles with C-Channel system truck beds.
The Three-Quarter Nelson
The Three-Quarter Nelson™ mounts to any standard domestic truck bed using both sidewalls along with an adjustable cross bar. For flexible positioning, the Three-Quarter Nelson can be mounted either at the forward position of the truck bed or at the rear. This bed mount carries two bikes with sockets for expandable capacity for up to six bikes with accessory add-ons. The Three-Quarter Nelson includes one SpinWing able to hold two bikes. The flexible design can be expanded to hold two additional ™ bicycle mounts for a total capacity of six bikes. Each system comes equipped with the anti-theft RingLocker security system. A Channel Adapter Kit is also is available for mounting the Three-Quarter Nelson to import channel based truck beds.
For maximum flexibility the Full Nelson can be mounted in any position on any non-channel domestic pickup bed. Like all the Nelson Level2 truck bed bicycle carriers, the Full Nelson comes with one Nelson SpinWing that holds two bikes and completely rotates for easy access. Two additional Nelson SpinWing bicycle mounts can be added to carry a total of six bike of any size or configuration. For increased flexibility, the SpinWing can be mounted in line with the truck bed or parallel to the truck cab, all while keeping the truck bed free for additional gear and equipment. The anti-theft RingLocker security system keeps both bikes and racks secure.
The Nelson line will be available for shipments starting mid-October 2019.
The universal V shaped design used for the Nelson wheel mount support is built for maximum flexibility for transit, storage and organization. This means that any sized bicycle, with any frame design up to 35 lbs can be carried on the Nelson SpinWing™. This means it is a cinch to carry a 29er mountain bike, road bike, Cruiser street bike, BMX, recumbent or folding bike all at the time. Don’t limit your imagination. With accessories available from Let’s Go Aero you can attach fat bikes, skis, snowboards or extra cargo bags. And more is in store with a line of home and garage bicycle storage racks for cross platform use this winter. Stay tuned!
