Ezigrip has been New Zealand’s leading bike rack brand for three decades. In 1989, Michael Parker, the founder of towbar manufacturer Best Bars, was approached to build a custom rack so an adventurous Kiwi could take his bike on a journey. Michael was quick to see this adventurous Kiwi for what he was – the everyday Kiwi. New Zealanders have loved adventuring since they called the island country home. With sandy beaches, volcanic mountains, snow capped peaks, dense forests and rocky hills, the country offers up a wealth of opportunity for adventure.
So Michael set about creating a rack that everyone could use, applying the same high standard for quality and longevity that made Best Bars a household name.
And everyone loved it.
To this day, you can still spot the original Ezigrip cruising down the motorways of New Zealand and Australia with bikes sitting snug in the tell-tale blue clamps.
Now Ezigrip is owned by Hamish Parker, Michael Parker’s son.
As a rider, Hamish brings to market products he himself enjoys. Ezigrip now has a wide range of options to suit all types of riders, from those heading to the bach for the odd ride, to the dedicated mountain bikers risking life and limb on loose berms.
We believe everyone should have the chance to ride more. We have at our core the adventurous streak that all New Zealanders possess, and we think the whole world could use a little more of the Kiwi spirit. More riding, more adventures and more journeys. This means creating a range of racks that suit everyone’s ride and wallet.
We can’t forget where we came from either – so we continue working hard to make sure all Ezigrip products are as robust and reliable as that first classic rack.
Rest assured, if you are using an Ezigrip, we will get you where you want to go so you can ride more.
