Stable and secure with 3-pack mounts on the uprights for your favorite cargo cages, bottle cages, or bolt-on bags and more tie-down points on the solid deck than you could ever need. Front or rear compatible, the Elkhorn lets you feel the trail beneath you rather than the tail wag behind you. The design and name of the Elkhorn is inspired by the Elkhorn Ridge trail in Eastern Oregon. It’s a rocky and technical trail with plenty of exposure, requiring a light, stable setup, and a sure footing.
Old Man Mountain racks have carried everything from briefcases and beer to a month’s worth of provisions for unsupported adventure. They’re built to last and have a proven track record.
Trust us, the last thing we want is a call from a customer deep in the Peruvian Andes who needs a replacement rack! We’ve made it 25 years without that call and intend to keep it that way! Knock on wood *knock knock*.
Whether you’re headed out to do some birding and bringing a tripod and picnic along, going on a packrafting trip for a week, a quick overnight just out of town, or riding to work, The Elkhorn is the perfect companion.
It comes ready to mount, front or rear, if your bike has rack mounts. If your bike doesn’t have mounts we’ve got you covered.
We make a full line of Fit Kits to axle mount the rack. In addition to fitting nearly any bike with the Fit Kits, they also protect your bike from overloading your eyelets. The rack is confidently rated to carry 25lbs.
