The UltraGroove is a retractable hard tonneau cover with integrated T-slots in the rails that allow you to add a roof rack or ladder rack to your vehicle. This enables you to carry kayaks, bikes, and other sports and recreation gear while leaving your bed free for more items. The cover's stylish ArmorTek construction consists of a vinyl fabric top sheet that is bonded to rigid aluminum panels, combining the seamless appearance of a soft tonneau with the security features of a hard tonneau. The enhanced weather seals ensure your gear stays clean and dry.


Retractable Cover with Built-In Pull Strap

UltraGroove operation

The UltraGroove retracts with one turn of a handle. The handle - located underneath the rear plate of the cover - activates a heavy-duty tension spring. This spring automatically retracts the cover into the canister at the bulkhead of your truck bed. A built-in pull strap helps you extend the cover over your bed. As you pull, the handle will unlock and the cover will engage the side rails at 12" intervals.


UltraGroove halfway open

You can stop the cover at these designated intervals if you need to carry tall or long items that overlap your tailgate while still covering cargo, such as a toolbox, stored closer to the bulkhead of the truck. You can also use the rear plate of the tonneau cover to pull it closed.


Side Rails with T-Slots

UltraGroove Hauling Versatility

The tonneau cover's side rails include integrated T-slots that allow you to mount accessories directly to the cover. This Rail Expansion System (RES) runs the length of the side rails so you can positon your accessories - such as a ladder rack or roof rack - to accommodate different-size loads. This enables you to haul sports and recreation gear above your bed without interfering with the operation of the cover. The rails are also compatible with Pace Edwards EL200 ladder rack (sold separately).


UltraGroove T-slots in rails

These rails have rounded sides and curved endcaps that are sleeker and more streamlined when compared with other slotted tonneau cover side rails.


Angled Canister

UltraGroove canister with drain tube

The cover retracts into a compact, angled canister located at the front of your truck bed. This canister protects the retracted cover from the elements, and with the cover stored in the canister you'll have unrestricted visibility out of your rear window. The angled design of the canister also allows for maximum useable cargo space in your truck bed.


Enhanced Cargo Protection

Drain tube near tailgate

The UltraGroove provides more protection from water and debris than many other covers on the market. Its rails feature a water management system that channels excess water into the canister. This prevents water from getting into your bed or freezing in your tonneau cover rails during cold temperatures. Drain tubes attached to the bottom of the canister remove water through the OE drain holes in the floor of your truck bed. Additional drain tubes at the end of the side rails also channel water out through existing drain holes in your truck bed side walls.


UltraGroove rail cap

The cover side rails have rubber seals on the outside that conform to your truck bed rail caps and keep dirt and water out of your bed. The rails have seals on the inside to create another barrier that protects your cargo from water and dust. There are also endcaps that seal over the top edge of your tailgate to prevent leaking at the corners. Lastly, a large seal at the rear of the bed closes the gap between the cover and your tailgate to shield your cargo from runoff water.


Low-Profile Design

Low Profile tonneau cover

The curved side rails and endcaps sit approximately 1" above the truck bed rails for a low-profile look. This sleek design is aerodynamic to reduce wind drag, and it helps to improve gas mileage when cover is closed.


Stylish and Heavy-Duty Construction

Stylish and heavy-duty construction

The UltraGroove deck is constructed of a vinyl top layer bonded to heavy-duty aluminum slats. This ArmorTek deck looks like a soft tonneau cover with no visible seams, but has the strength and security of a hard tonneau cover. The rails are constructed of extruded aluminum with a black powder coat finish.


Security

The UltraGroove provides excellent protection for your cargo when used in conjunction with a closed and locked tailgate. Both the handle and pull strap are located underneath the rear plate, which makes them inaccessible when your truck bed is closed. The durable aluminum panels are better at preventing theft when compared with soft covers that can be cut or punctured with a knife. The panels are also more effective at preventing theft than a tri-fold hard tonneau cover because the panels cannot be pried open at any point along the rails.


No-Drill Installation

To install the cover, set the canister in your truck bed and support it with a box or other sturdy object. Slide the cover side rails into the canister until they are fully seated in the rail grips while also threading the cover into the channels in the rails. Secure the rails to the canister with bolts and washers.


UltraGroove installation kickstand

Attach the rails to the canister, then secure the rails to your truck's bed rails using 2 clamps per side. Slide the clamp onto the rail, flip the pivot arm up so it is under the bed rail lip, and tighten the clamp in place. Shims are included for trucks with tapered beds.


Each clamp at the tailgate end of the rails has a supplemental kickstand to help level the rails and prevent overtightening during installation. To install the kickstand, simply slide it into the grip handle at the bottom of the clamp. Rotate the kickstand so the foot rests squarely against the side wall of the truck bed, and tighten in place.


Mount the top cover plate to the canister with the included hardware. Install 2 drain tubes to the rear of the rails and 2 drain tubes to the canister. Route each tube out of the OEM drain holes in your truck bed.


To hold the pull strap off the floor of your truck bed, apply the adhesive hook-and-loop fastener strip onto the underside of a rail at your desired location.

Video Transcript for Pace Edwards UltraGroove Retractable Hard Tonneau Cover Review

Hello, everybody Clayton here at etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the Pace Edwards Ultragroove retractable hard tonneau cover. Now, we do have this installed on a Silverado but we do have plenty of options here at etrailer and you can use our fit guide to find the correct one for your truck. There are gonna be a lot of benefits to using a hard tonneau cover that we have installed today. We're gonna get full bed security with our tailgate lock. So you don't have to worry about people getting in here or cutting your soft tonneau cover to get in and steal whatever you have back here.

So it's gonna be nice and secure, you're gonna have that peace of mind, and this one, in particular, does have drains. So, you're gonna be able to keep everything you can leave back here dry that's gonna be awesome. Either golf clubs back here or fishing rods not gonna have to worry about them getting soaked in the rain. Something that I really like in particular about this cover is how thin it is. It only sits an inch above your bed rails, giving you that nice sleek, sporty look, while also offer all the great features of a hard tonneau cover.

And one nice thing about this, it is gonna contribute to your fuel economy. Our tonneau cover is gonna be constructed out of aluminum. So it's gonna give us that nice security, but it also has this vinyl on top giving it that nice finished look. To retract your tonneau cover, we're just gonna flip this lever here and let it retract all the way in. And one of the best benefits to using a retractable cover is they're still gonna have full bed access.

And it's gonna be super easy Whenever we push this all the way up, it's not gonna be blocking our window. So we're still gonna be able to see we'll get all of that bed access. And it's gonna be super easy to use, just simply flip that lever and the whole thing retracts our canister dimensions are gonna be 9 1/4 inches tall and 9 3/4 inches deep. Now, it does add a little bit when we add our rails so we can measure our canister here. And with everything put together, we're sitting at about 10 1/2 inches deep and a little under 11 inches tall.

So it does take up a little bit of space but you still have all this room underneath that canister. Then our front cover here is gonna have these bristles on it to protect the cover. Whenever you slide it in and out it's gonna refrain from scratching that vinyl, our rails in our canister are gonna be totally sealed. We're gonna have this nice gasketing that runs all the way down the rails, and on the front we're gonna have some foam so it's gonna help keep all that moisture out of our truck bed. Whenever we're ready to close our tonneau cover. Simply just pull back on the strap, Until it locks into position. And as I was talking about this is the lever that's gonna control the tonneau cover locks. So whenever you're ready to slide it back open that up and it will slide. And then if you just need to open up part of your bed there is gonna be 12 inch locking intervals. That way you don't have to have this totally open or totally closed. Let's say you go to the hardware store and pick up some lumber, even stick that out right here. You're not gonna have to worry about opening up all the way when you're tonneau cover is fully extended in the locking position. All you have to do is close your tailgate and you're ready to hit the road. Whenever you're dealing with a tonneau cover and let's say a kayak or a ladder give me kind of irritating. Sometimes getting those in the bed. Did you have to decide if you're gonna open or close your tonneau cover, but with this tonneau cover you don't have to worry about that. We have our T channels here on the right so we can pick up a roof rack or a ladder rack or cargo or kayak carrier I should say, and get all of those items mounted up above our tonneau cover is still having that lockable feature with our tonneau cover. So it's gonna be super easy to live with if you're using it for work. Our T channel is what actually gives our tonneau cover the ultra groove while all the other tonneau covers on the market aren't gonna have this. So having that in the name really speaks a lot to how usable this tonneau cover is gonna be for you. And one thing I really like about this tonneau cover it being so dry with the drains that's gonna be really great for bed rugs. If you haven't checked into bed rugs basically it's a carpeting system that goes into the bed of your truck to protect those more sensitive items. If you are curious about the bed rugs you can check those out here in etrailer. And as far as getting our tonneau cover installed it's not gonna be bad at all. There's no drilling or anything like that. It's definitely something you guys can do at home. Now just to get some personal insight to this tonneau cover I really liked the retractable feature. I have a hard folding cover on my truck and it is kind of rough whenever you're putting something on the bed and you can't see out of your rear window. So having that retractable feature is gonna speak volumes for those guys that are using your trucks every day. I really liked the T channels. Being able to use a ladder rack or a kayak carrier is gonna be awesome. And that's gonna do it for our look at the Pace Edwards Ultragroove retractable hard tonneau cover..

Review from a similar Pace Edwards UltraGroove Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


Took my time installing it. For the most part no problems. I see some concerns around the tailgate. (Sealing) I like the ease of retracting and opening it. With tailgate locked, its very easy to open with a flat putty knife. Overall I Like the appearance and the way its constructed. Only had it a few days so time will tell.


Comments
I enjoy it very much. I added extra foam to seal around tail gate. After a good rain or thru the car wash, it still doesnt leak. I highly recommend this product.

Review from a similar Pace Edwards UltraGroove Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


This cover fit my truck bed to a T with nicely sized rubber seals along the edges. The UltraGroove allowed me to install a Yakima rack system that is the most sturdy of any racks I have owned in 20 years for my kayaks. All in all I couldn't be happier with this tonneau cover.

Review from a similar Pace Edwards UltraGroove Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


Received the Pace Edwards UltraGroove Retractable Hard Tonneau Cover in a box that was destroyed! The contents made it okay, except I did not receive the truck bed stake hole covers. I'm sure etrailer will make good on it as they have great customer service! However this review is for the cover and although the cover seems okay....the instructions totally suck! For $[XXXX] dollars, I expect more!

Review from a similar Pace Edwards UltraGroove Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


I’ve had my PE Ultra Groove hard tonneau cover on my 2019 RAM 1500 Bighorn for a year now and I’m very pleased with it. My biggest concern when I bought it was if it would be water tight. I’m happy to report that after a few heavy rain storms and several tripe through the car wash it hasn’t leaked at all. Far superior to the BackFlip cover I had previously. It is very low maintenance as the only thing I need to do periodically is lube the track with 303 vinyl dressing so it retracts easily. It does “flutter” a bit at freeway speed but it doesn’t appear to be at all problematic.

Review from a similar Pace Edwards UltraGroove Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


This product exceeded my expectation! I installed it on a 2019 F450 limited and the only modifications required to the truck was to drill (2) 5/8” holes in the bed plug covers (4L3Z-99277B76-AA) to allow the drain tubes to exit the bed of the truck. The rail mounts did require me to remove (drill out) all the shims to get the required width for the cover. Thanks to both etrailer and Pace-Edwards customer support for answering questions about removing the shims. The online instructions I downloaded from etrailer did not contain the correct installation widths for this Item, however the instructions shipped from Pace-Edwards were spot on.

Review from a similar Pace Edwards UltraGroove Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


It's a well built tonneau cover. It was very difficult to install, but I got it done. It operates good and looks good. The only drawback, is it leaks water bad. In the spring, I'll silicone around the front two drain lines at the roller box, and on the top rear roller box cover plate. Hope it helps.


Comments
I reached out to my contact at Pace Edwards, and he was able to give me some advise on how to find and prevent the leaking issue. He recommended recreating the water by using a hose or bucket of water while recording the inside of the cover. If water is leaking from one side of the cover, a simple adjustment could be the issue. If the water is leaking from up near the box, my contact recommended using silicon on the gaps or some weather stripping.
