Taking its name from Khyber Pass in the Whistler backcountry, Khyber Racks were designed in Whistler and tested in the mountains of British Columbia.
The wet coastal environment of the Sea to Sky corridor where we ride is tough on steel. Solving the corrosion issue was a top priority. We achieved this by using stainless steel for the mast and wheel holders, and aluminum for the rest of the frame. All hardware is also stainless steel.
It might seem obvious that a mountain bike rack would be suitable for off-road use, but many racks are not up to those demands, and their warranty and performance reflects that. So we approached ours the way that makes sense to us. Since we take our bikes up mountain roads repeatedly, we needed a rack that can deliver that for the length of the warranty; lifetime.
Scratches on your bike should tell a story about your rides, not about your friend’s brake levers and pedal pins, and certainly not about your rack. We took “nothing but rubber” seriously to make sure your bike arrives at the top of the mountain in the same condition it was at the bottom.
We now have a rack that we are stoked to hang our bikes from, and we are sure you'll feel the same.
Khyber Racks was founded by Jaan Hurditch (Mechanical Engineer) and Mark Haimes (CAD Tech) who met at a DH race in 2002 and still shuttle their bikes up mountains to ride back down faster than they should.
