The space-saving Velo Gripper bike carrier lets you transport 1 bike in your truck bed. Because your bike will be mounted along the inside of your truck bed, you'll have plenty of room for those other items you need to haul. This carrier mounts easily in the C-channel of your truck bed, and ratcheting straps hold a bike of any shape or size by the seat stay and fork. Built-in D-rings act as tie-down spots so that you can secure your bike with a cable lock or tie down other cargo with a bungee cord or strap.


Hassle-Free Bike Mounting

Inno Velo Gripper Bike Rod and Strap

Two ratcheting straps on adjustable rods hold one bike of any shape or size by the fork and seat stay - no need to remove your front wheel to mount your bike. The rods rotate so the holders can grab your bike from any angle. Rotating the rods also allows you to adjust the amount of space between your bike frame and the side of your truck bed. That way, you can position your bike close enough to the side of your truck bed to save space but not so close that your bike and truck bed make contact.


Simple Truck-Bed Installation

The Velo Gripper installs without drilling in the C-channel mounted on the inside wall of your truck bed. To install, place the included protective plates on top of your truck bed rail to prevent the mounting brackets from scuffing or scratching the paint. Then slide the square nuts into the C-channel and position the mounting brackets over the protective plates. Tighten down the brackets and square nuts with the eye bolts to complete installation.


Space-Saving Design

Inno Velo Gripper 202 Space Saving

Your bike will rest on both wheels in its normal upright position on the inside of your truck bed. This mounting style leaves most of your truck bed open to carry other gear. You can position your bike at the front or the rear of your truck bed to help reduce the potential for the bike to roll. This not only reduces pressure on the Velo Gripper but also saves space in your truck bed.


D-Ring Attachments

Each bracket has an attached D-ring that enables you to use tie-down straps with or without your bike mounted. Loop a a cable lock with a maximum diameter of 3/4" (sold separately) through the D-rings or the eye bolts and through your bike frame to lock the carrier to your truck and your bike to the carrier. A 5' - 6' long cable is recommended for locking your bike and both brackets. When you're not transporting a bike, these D-rings make great tie-down spots for securing other gear in your truck.

This is a great product that was made to fit my 2011 Toyota Tacoma truck bed liner. In no time I can have my bike held securely in the bed of my truck with total confidence it will not come loose. I highly recommend it.


Comments
Great!
arthur - 01/17/2022


by:

These work perfect for me, since they fit in the C-channel you can adjust for different bikes. (I have 2)
They seem pretty heavy duty, not cheap or flimsy and the price is way lower than having to get a trailer hitch. receiver and bike rack.


Comments
Doing great. They are in full sun a lot and not even wore out or anything.
Joe - 05/17/2022


by:

Very easy to figure out and install. Was impressed with the quality and ingenuity that made the
bike rack customer friendly. Whole process from ordering and installing was doable for this 63 year old woman. I have had a bike come off on other things I have tried, but this has given me the confidence that will not happen again.




by:

I use this product on GM trucks equipped with cargo stabilizer bars for transporting our heavy e-bikes. They are easy to install and versatile. I have taken the bikes throughout the southeast to rail-trails and on the auto train. I added a strap on each bike recently so there is less play.




by:
2015 Toyota Tacoma

Holds my bike onto the C-channel of my Tacoma w/o issue. Will likely add some padding under the l-brackets to prevent rattling at highway speed.




by:

It was easy to install, but a lot of adjustments had to be done to make myu bike feel secured.




by:

I love my Inno Velo Gripper truck bed bike rack. It was so easy to install and remove if I need to (which I do when season is over). I have had so much interest in it when I've been at biking events. People seem to like that it doesn't have to be mounted to the vehicle and be in the way like many rear mount racks. I like that too but I also like that I don't have to take a wheel off to haul my bike and my friends bike. I highly recommend the Inno Velo Gripper bike rack. Happy Biking!




by:
2012 Toyota Tacoma

These are excellent quality and fit well into the channel of my truck bed. The only drawback is my 2012 Tacoma TRD Double Cab has the short bed (5 ft) and the rear gripper bike rack is at the very end of the channel. The bikes just fit but this is due to the truck and not the Velo Gripper.




by:
Toyota Tacoma

This kit is super easy to install on a Tacoma pickup truck... I have a long bed Tacoma with the bed rails so I don't need to take off my wheel... also easy to unclamp the bike for in and out usage.... "I have a full suspension specialized Stumpjumper. " And if you're wanting to take off the mounds so they don't get stolen, it's two bolts and you can put them in your vehicle when you're all on the trails.




by:

Product is high quality, designed for the rails in the truck and was easy to install and use.




by:
2007 Dodge Ram Pickup

Very good product. Well made and easy to use. Also doubles as a fishing rod holder for up to 3 rods. keeps them up and out of harm from ice chests and other equipment that would damage them.




by:
2005 Toyota Tacoma

The C-Channel Mount did work as indicated. However, the mounting plate did not fit as securely as it should when everything was tightened down. There is a possibility of the mount moving out position or being lost altogether while transporting your bike.




by:

The product works great!




by:
2017 Toyota Tacoma

The bike rack that attaches to my Tacomas bedrail works great. I was able to track the shipment right to my local post office. Im happy.




by:
2015 Toyota Tundra

Used them several times over the past year to secure our two mountain bikes. They hold the bikes firmly and upright, freeing up lots of space for storage. When they were installed, I made small notches in the plastic trim on the pickup bed on each side of the brackets. When I need them, I simply line up the brackets with the markings and attach them to the bikes. Quick and perfect fit each time. They are a unique product and generate a lot of interest.




by:
Toyota Tacoma

The quality of this bike rack is very high. Pieces that I thought would be plastic are beautifully painted metal that are solid and heavy. This rack fits the C-channels of my Tacoma as it designed by Toyota as a factory accessory. It works perfectly! I’m thrilled with it.




by:
2016 Toyota Tacoma

Product does NOT work with the Toyota locking bed rail system as advertised. It can be made to fit within the rails, but it is a somewhat tricky process.

As far as holding the bike steady, that aspect of the product works great, though I highly recommend an adjustable clasp system instead of the Allen key for locking the extended arms down.




by:
2020 Toyota Tacoma

We used them last weekend traveling 300 miles and they worked great! The bike didn't move in the truck. It stayed in place.




by:

I replaced a huge, heavy Yakima rack with these light weigh easy to use and secure brackets. I leave them on and love them.




by:

Love it. Easy to install & makes such an easy way to transport bikes. Like the bikes in the back of truck instead of on a bike rack.




by:

Great design. Really makes taking bikes in my truck simple. The best solution I've come across.
I suggest a design improvement: Quick release of the rods, with a 1/4 turn release. Using an hex wrench or unscrewing the rods is the only part of the design that could use improvement.




by:
2010 Toyota Tacoma

These are great -- easy to install and fit my '10 Tacoma nicely. Can run a cable through them to lock bike when traveling, too. Highly recommend.




by:

Great company! Prompt delivery!




by:
2016 Toyota Tacoma

Bought it with some hesitation, but am completely satisfied.

Got a late start on shopping for my Dad’s birthday, ordered on Friday for his Monday birthday and it still showed up a day early! Thanks guys!

  • Is the Inno Velo Gripper Bike Rack for a 2015 Toyota Tundra with C-Channel Rails Secure
    The square "nut" that fits into the channels on your 2015 Toyota Tundra to secure the Inno Velo Gripper # INRT202 is metal. Specifically it is black powder coated steel. It is just large enough to fit in the channel but has more than enough contact area to support not only the carrier but the bike attached to it as well. It is no different than roof racks that use a T-slot to secure things to roof rack crossbars and those have to handle much more stress than the Velo Gripper. So if you...

    Sounds like you are looking for a mounting option for your rail management system that doesn't require you to remove the wheel of your bike for your 2012 Toyota Tacoma, instead of the fork mounted option that you were looking at from Rocky Mounts RKY1085. I have just the item you will need to do that. The Inno Velo Gripper # INRT202 is designed to mount into the C-channel of your cargo management system. The Inno cradles will secure to your bikes frame as your bike rests on both wheels...

    The Inno Velo Gripper Bike Rack for Truck Beds # INRT202 that you referenced is a fit for your 2018 Toyota Tacoma with the bed rail system and does also fit with bed rail covers installed on the truck. If you have a different rack in the C-channel you'd have to adjust that as needed to install this rack.

  • Inno Velo Gripper on a Bike with a Carbon Frame
    If the Inno Velo Gripper, part # INRT202, has not been scratching the carbon fork of your current bike, then it probably will not scratch the carbon frame of your new bike. However, I spoke with Inno on your behalf, and they cannot guarantee there will be no scratching. They recommended using some kind of padding between the grip of the Velo Gripper and the frame.

  • INNO Truck Bed Bike Rack Recommendation for 2003 Ford Ranger and How to Lock Bikes
    For your 2003 Ford Ranger the correct fitting truck bed bike rack by Inno is the part # INRT201. This will fit the bed style of your vehicle well. There are D-rings built into this rack that allows you to route a cable lock through it and the bikes with a cable lock like part # e98891.

  • Does the Inno Velo Gripper Bike Rack # INRT201 Fit a 2017 Toyota Tacoma
    Yes, the Inno Velo Gripper Bike Rack # INRT201 is compatible with your 2017 Toyota Tacoma as long as it doesn't have the Cargo Management Rails. If your Tacoma does have the Cargo Management Rails you will want to use part # INRT202 instead. This is the exact same trunk bed bike rack it just installs in a slightly different manner. If you would like to add some security to your bike rack then I also recommend installing the Cable Lock # e98891.

    One simple option is the Topline rack # UG2500 which basically holds the bikes at the frame. It is also expandable if you wanted to carry more bikes. I have linked a video review of this rack for you. Another option for a single bike is the Inno Velo Gripper # INRT201 which also holds the bike at the frame. Its a simple set up but if you are carrying 2 bikes you would need to order 2 of them. I have linked a video of the Velo Gripper as well. If you have a Chevrolet, GMC, or Toyota truck...

    I have a solution for you, but the Inno Velo Gripper, part # INRT202 is designed for specific models and the 2015 Ram series are not a fit for it. Instead, I recommend the Thule Insta-Gater Pro, part # TH93VR. This unique rack installs into the space between your tailgate and truck bed, giving you an easy to use wheel-mounted solution for your bike. I've included a video review of this on a 2016 Ram 2500 so you can see how the rack installs to the truck and how it rides. Additionally,...

Instead, for a 2016 Toyota Tacoma with deck rail system I recommend the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack for Compact Trucks part # TH823PRO. The tailgate pad is really the only option save for a hitch mounted bike rack due to the weight of the bike.

  • Recommended Lockable Truck Bed Bike Rack for 2017 Toyota Tacoma with Cargo Management Rails
    Your best bet for a lockable bike rack that is compatible with the Cargo Management Rails on your new 2017 Toyota Tacoma is the Inno Velo C-Channel-Mount Gripper Bike Rack # INRT202. This carrier offers no-drill installation and includes D-rings that provide anchor points for a cable lock or tie-down points for cargo straps.

  • Recommendation to Secure Inno Velo Gripper Bike Rack and Bike
    The Inno Velo Gripper Bike Rack for Truck Beds - C-Channel Mount # INRT202 absolutely could be unclamped to take the bike if you only used a cable lock through the attached D-ring. I recommend using a cable lock like # e98891 and running it through the d-ring as well as another area of your truck like around your c-channel to further secure it. You may even consider using a stake pocket D-ring like # T355 if you don't have another tie down location to secure to.

    Truck bed bike racks such as # S64702 will need to rest on top of the bed sides. Otherwise they will not stay in place as you drive. What I recommend is the Softride Shuttle Pad # SR26461. These tailgate pads actually work quite well and you would not have to worry about the handlebars on the bikes interfering with the ladder rack. Another option, if your truck has the factory cargo management rails in the bed, is the Velo Gripper # INRT202. This is for one bike and it mounts to the cargo...

This is actually a clever and cost-effective combination of products, so good for you for being creative! I do suggest you add a strap for extra stability, as you suggested, and we offer a simple support strap # 18050 from Curt. You might even want to use a second Topline clamp...
