Mercedes-Benz tranport solutions: Everything you need
With individual transport solutions for bycicles, skis and snowboards, each tailored to the vehicle in question, Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH offers optimum storage space extensions to ensure active enjoyment of leisure activities. Catalogues with the comprehensive model-specific range of accessories from Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH are available to download here.
They can be mounted in next to no time, and no additional tools whatever are required – this is the innovative advantage of the new Alustyle Quickfix basic carrier generation, which Mercedes-Benz Accessories can now offer for the new B-Class, and will be offering in future for the new A-Class. The innovative quick-grip mounting can be installed very simply. The lockable plastic caps are an effective theft deterrent, and at the same time ensure that the quick-release lever cannot become detached. Close cooperation between accessory developers, body experts and the designers of the new compact vehicles was needed to develop the Alustyle Quickfix, and so four readily accessible attachment points have been fully integrated into the roof design.
The new Easy-Fix II carrier bars are just as easy to attach, and are available for the current M-Class, the GL and the GLK models. Here too, just a few steps are needed: pre-tension until the bar clicks, and then tighten by shifting the lever, which once again can be easily attached without the use of tools.
Other important criteria in the design of all carrier systems from the range of genuine accessories included optimisation of aerodynamics and the noise level, and also crash testing, which at Mercedes-Benz goes well beyond the legal requirements. All components in the carrier systems meet the highest standards in terms of operating stability and durability.
