CargoBear 2.0 roof rack – Defender
£525.00 – £1,955.00
In terms of performance, our CargoBear was and is the grizzly bear of the roof racks. Strong, powerful and extremely versatile, it was well ahead of its time when it was launched in 2016. But just as the earth turns, evolution does not stand still and everything that wants to survive has to develop further.
And so this spring a new CargoBear woke from hibernation. Leaner and meaner, the CargoBear 2.0, came out of the cave in Bavaria. Same load capacity, same strength, same stiffness, but with significantly reduced combat weight. It weighs 30% less and so less on the car roof too.
How it works? The decisive difference lies in the new construction method. Instead of the heavy side stirrups, the newly developed, perforated HIGRIP panel modules and edge plates now take over the longitudinal bracing and ensure (approximately) the same static values with a considerable reduction in weight.
The CargoBear 2.0 is designed for a load of 300kg in the field (with evenly distributed load). In theory, this value could easily be doubled on the road. However, two circumstances should be noted that always apply to roof racks: On the one hand, a loaded roof rack can increase the centre of gravity of the vehicle considerably, which should be taken into account when using off-road vehicles. On the other hand, the permitted roof load of the respective vehicle is decisive when loading and this is usually well below the load-bearing capacity of the roof rack.
What remains the same with the new bear is the deep black, super flat look, the high-performance material and the modular versatility. All accessories, attachments, roof tents etc. are fully compatible with the predecessor. For the long version of the G-Class, the CargoBear 2.0 is finally available with four crossbars and we are already working on a version for the New Defender. But Nakatanenga always present real results as soon as possible and not computer-generated designs unlike some competitors.
