Product Details

Saris Sentinel 3-Bike

Saris’ Sentinel 3-Bike rack is ready to go right out of the box, easy to mount, and, thanks to its narrow arm spread, securely holds three bikes. The frame adjusts to the contours of your car and folds down flat for simple storage. To protect your car and provide a solid mount, the six hold-down straps have coated hooks, while the legs are foam-padded. Stiff ratcheting straps ensure a firm grasp on your bikes.

          Generally very happy with this purchase. Well-made rack, easy to fit and adjust (on my Ford B-Max) that carries three adult bikes with ease. Slight hassle loading a ladies-frame bike with thick tubes, but managed it in the end (the problem is the bike frame, not the rack). The upper webbing straps look a bit thin, as they carry all of the weight, but I had no problems, so I guess they are OK. Only quibble is that the one I saw in the (online) store had (cool!) yellow joints, but the one I received had (boring!) black ones.

                Easy to install and very lightweight. Not so easy to load women's bikes, but can carry 3 men's bikes quite easily.

                      This rack has been a reasonable rack for a reasonable price. I was looking for a rack with 6 point hold down, which this rack has. It has functioned as I thought. However, though I never have used the middle hold down, I noticed that it was cracked right down the center. I have contacted Saris service for a replacement, so hopefully that will go well.

                        I love this rack. I leave it on my car most of the year. It holds up to weather and wear. Its a perfect rack for the weekend cyclist. And transporting you and your friends bike to the trails. Best strength is it is very light.

                              Marketing hype would have us believe you must spend $150 plus for a bike carrier. This carrier has proven stable, easy to set up on my 2008 Toyota Matrix wagon which has a hatch-back style rear door. I've used the rack carrying my bikes on camping trips traveling over some fairly poor roads and am pleased with the results. Having seen poor ratings from others, I conclude that (1) they did not properyly install the rack, (2) they may not have properly loaded the bikes on the rack and (3) may be loading inexpensive and very heavy "toy" bikes. I have had no negative issues and am completely satisfied.

                                          Great product, easy to fit and could not find anything of similar quality for the same price. However, so far I have only used it to carry one bike, not sure how it would cope with three.

                                                I just bought a new Toyota Prius and since it has a solar panel on the roof, a roof rack wouldn't work. I like loading up my bikes and going places and having to put them in the car cut down options. I went to the Saris site and was pointed to one that would work for me. I'm on the road!

                                                      I was concerned about attaching anything to my Lincoln MKZ. This rack is easy to attach, secure, and does not do any damage to the car. It is compact, easy to store or carry in the trunk when not in use. Thanks for a great product which solved what I thought was going to be a giant problem.
