RP 1,200,000 Décathlon
Decathlon Customer Care, after about 1.5 years of buying this rack and using it almost on 10-12 occasions, the rubber sleeves have torn (the rubber parts that act as cushion between hooks and car boot). 4 out of 6 rubber parts are in 2 parts. Surprisingly there is no spare available at Decathlon too. How can you do that? It is an expensive product and for a CRUCIAL rubber part,I cannot change the whole rack. Can someone give me a solution please?
Otherwise, it is a sturdy rack and you can clip on your bikes (I have tried it with 2 bikes personally) quite confidently. Doesn't budge at all even on Mumbai's bumpy and terrible roads. Please be cautious about the rubber sleeves though.
I was told that by Decathlon service team at store that this could not fit on Sedans like Volkswagen Vento in India and in case if I try using it also I will every time need to remove front wheel of riverside 500. Can you please confirm if it's compatible with Volkswagen Vento sedan without need of removal of front wheel. Do I need additional bar for support ?
Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. The carrack is compatible with Volkswagen Vento. You can carry the bike without removing the front wheel. Do let me know if you have any other questions. I remain available.
Does not fit to even standard brands. I have trek and Raliegh mtb cycles. Does not fit. Fitting rods are too wide for them. Also does not come with standard settings for indian cars. It hardly fits to my ford endeavour 2017. Overall useless purchase for me.
Thanks for taking time out to review this product. We regret any inconvenience you have had thanks to the dimensions of this product. The tailgate 300 bike carrier has standard dimensions in comparison to the car racks available in the market. For the Ford Endeavour 2017 - if your car has a breakable spoiler we recommend using the Tailgate 320. If you could share your phone number with us one of our team members would be able to walk you through the installation process. We hope this is helpful.
Good product , very useful but over priced
Easy to assemble, very useful to carry cycles. Driven on bumpy rides, holding good.
Thank you for your helpful review and we really appreciate you, taking out the time to share your experience. Keep cycling.
I was told at Decathlon that this product will not fit on Volkswagen Vento or similar Sedans . Can you pls check and confirm for this specific model of car which is pretty common in India
Thank you for reviewing our product. Apologies for the mis-communication from our team. The product 300 Tailgate Cycle carrier can be used for Volkswagen Vento. It is compatible with the car. You may check the video on how to install ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkG5JOerxhs). Do revert if you have any other query with the product.

good one for carry cycles
Actually this is the one I am looking for last year I saw in US but carrying is difficult. The best part you can use it in seadan as well as hatchback. Very strong
Being a first time user yet the learning curve to use the product was short which means the product design is good and user friendly. The decathlon staff who helped me install it the first time on my suv gave clear and crisp demo that helped me a great deal. The product quality is top notch.
