Atera LINEA bike carrier AR4706 (024 706)

Atera's LINEA carriers are without doubt the highest quality 'clamp on' carriers available, of significantly better quality than the Thule Backpac and the various branded products you'll see in UK car dealer accessory catalogues. (They're sold as 'Original Equipment' by car dealers in Germany, but not in the UK. Shame!) The price reflects this quality, although we'd still argue that they're "good value" in the context of the price of a set of roof bars and aluminium roof mounting carriers.

This T5 LINEA is supplied partially assembled - you only need to attach the bike holding platform.

If you need to carry four bikes you should also order the Bike carrier adapter. Features:

  • The 3 bike base unit AR4706 is made of stainless steel and aluminium
  • You tighten the LINEA onto your car tailgate using a special key; the tensioner/lock is recessed for extra security
  • The bike platform always stands higher than the lights and number plate board, so no additional electrics are required
  • Atera's bike frame holders are without a doubt the most sophisticated bike holders available. They fit oval and other outsize frames as well as round ones, wrapping a strap right around the frame for safety and security. (This looks like a simple plastic strap, but it is in fact 'sandwiched' around a spring steel core.) With universal joints at both ends, and a slight curve in the aluminium support rod to increase the opportunities available, we haven't yet come across any combination of bike sizes and styles that can't easily be locked into place.
  • Each bike platform is 1400mm wide.
  • The bike comes to rest between the wheel clamps which, unusually, can and should be locked in position, adjusted for your bike, so the bike won't roll up or down the wheel tray. Now all you need to do is hold the bike vertical with one hand, even if the car is parked on a slope. Clever stuff...
  • There are rubber feet on the bottom of each LINEA to prevent damage when it's being stood up against a wall when not in use

Please note that this LINEA will not fit to T5s with rear spoilers and, very important, please do not buy it if your tailgate has a chrome strip at the bottom of the tailgate - this will be dented by the LINEA's clamping mechanism. Find a different solution - either roof mounting and/or tow bar mounting.

Made in Germany.

Delivery charges and arrangements:

We charge a contribution towards delivery costs, depending on what you order, where you live, and how quickly you want the goods.

For most UK addresses, the charge for our two to three day service is 5.50 (9.50 for orders including a roof box) and our charge for Next Working Day deliveries is 8.50 (12.50 for orders involving a roof box). AutoSock, shoe chains, RUD i-Sock, and small spare parts, are charged 3.95 (Royal Mail Tracked), 4.95 (Royal Mail Express Tracked) or 5.95 (express courier, usually Next Working Day).

There are different charges for any delivery including a sea crossing, and deliveries to Skye - we will contact you with a quote on receipt of order.

Orders for Next Working Day delivery need to be received by 4.00pm.

There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Next Working Day orders placed on a Friday will be delivered on the Monday, Next Working Day orders placed on a Saturday will be delivered on the Tuesday.

We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver on a day and at an address which suits you. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.

No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. All courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.

Payment options:

We take the following cards, and also PayPal. Please note that the entry on your card statement will be from "The Roof Box Company".

It's not possible to fit this rack to a car with a spoiler or other modifications to the tailgate. Very importantly, please don't order it if your T5 has chrome edging at the base of the tailgate - this rack is likely to dent it.
