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.

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!


Comments
This is one of those purchases that if you had it to do again, you probably wouldn’t!!! Fairly complicated to install with the instructions given, and I’m pretty capable of installing anything. Anytime you park, you have to be sure you’re not under a tree that might small pieces onto the tonneau or it gets stuck in the rails and is hard to open or close. Also, believe it or not, less than a month after I purchased it and installed it, someone stole one of the hold-down brackets and neither eTrailer or the company could come up with a replacement. I had to fashion one myself! Most of the time, the top is hard to open or close. Wish I had purchased a canopy instead!!!

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


Still very happy almost a year after installing it on my 2020 F350 long bed. Every time I watch other people fiddle and diddle with their roll-up or fold-up tonneau covers, I know I made the right decision. It retracts nicely into the canister at the front of the bed, and easily pulls back as far as I need it to go. I tow a 5th wheel RV, and can pull the cover right up to the 5th wheel hitch, keeping some of the cargo under cover. The drain tubes work pretty well, keeping the bed dry, although the front 2 drain tubes periodically clog up with dirt and debris. It's a minor issue that's not difficult to deal with. I would buy this cover again should the need arise.

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


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.

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.
