Kick-started by a love of the sport and a desire to blaze his own path, owner Ashley Hildebrand founded Bike Binderz to better haul motocross bikes from home to the track and back again. The strapless tie-down systems anchor bikes and snow-bikes to beds of trucks, trailers and other transport means, without putting unwanted pressure on the bikes’ front suspension systems. Designed to evolve with the rider as bikes get bigger, Bike Binderz are a long-term solution to the often tangled and messy bike-packing problem. Currently welded in Hildebrand’s garage, the lightweight aluminum systems offer a “road-to-load” time of less than one minute.
