Sportworks is a company of cyclists, and as cyclists we believe that having your pride and joy damaged by a bike rack is unacceptable. That is why we set out to improve the humble bike rack by incorporating a firm, but non-scratching thermoplastic bumper. Currently, we manufacture three styles of ground mounted bike parking racks with an integrated No Scratch® Bumper: Tofino, Westport and Oahu. We also offer three different configurations of Vertical+ bike racks with an adhered No Scratch® Bumper.
The No Scratch bumper is assembled into these racks, so it is an integral part of the product, thereby making it incredibly vandal resistant.
We also chose to incorporate rectangular tubing in the bike rack's construction, which makes it highly resistant to pipe cutters. The No Scratch® bumper itself is made of Santoprene®, an extremely tough, UV stable, fade and crack resistant, material.
Best of all, Santoprene® is 100% recyclable.
The No Scratch® bumper is adhered onto the Vertical+ bicycle support to protect the bike forks and the bike frame when hung vertically.
Like the on-ground No Scratch® bike parking racks, we also chose to incorporate rectangular tubing, to make the rack highly resistant to a pipe cutter attack. The No Scratch® bumper itself is made of Polyurethane and, like Santoprene, is an extremely tough, UV stable, fade and crack resistant, material.
Additionally, the bumper is adhered to the vertical support with a very high bond (VHB) 3M product, adding yet another level of vandal resistance.
