Let’s take a closer look at the SeaSucker Talon Bike Rack.

Talon Panoramic Roof Mount – Jaguar XE

SeaSucker vacuum mounts will attach to glass as well as steel, aluminium, carbon fibre and more.

In the example, our customer has mounted the mainboard on the panoramic roof. Subsequently, he mounted the rear wheel strap on the back window.

Talon Panoramic Roof Mount – Audi S3

Michael contacted us recently after purchasing his SeaSucker Talon 1-Bike Rack four years ago.  Since then he has used his bike rack over 200 times. Therefore, this averages out to using the bike rack weekly for four years.

In fact, glass mounting has the added advantage of being a surface that won’t scratch easily. As with other surfaces cleaning both surfaces, in other words, clean the car’s surface and the Vacuum Pads.

This is the most common mounting location for most sedans. With roof mounting the preferred location is on the left-hand side. This makes mounting and dismounting your bike safer as it places you on the kerbside.

Mounting the SeaSucker Talon on the roof/rear window and boot lid provides greater rigidity. It also provides good visibility from within the vehicle and also minimises overall height. Subsequently, this makes it easier to fit under carports and garages.

Talon Windscreen Mount – BMW M3 Sedan

BMW M3 Sedan Bike Rack - The SeaSucker TalonJust want to thank SeaSucker, LLC for providing the photos. This is a typical installation where a portion of the bike rack is on the mainboard and portion is the on the roof. The SeaSucker Talon has this advantage over the other bike racks in the SeaSucker range.

It does, however, demonstrate the ridiculous holding power of SeaSucker Bike Racks, but we digress. Another thing to consider is the actual location. We recommend mounting the bike rack on the car’s “kerbside”. Therefore for a right-hand drive car, you would mount it on the left-hand side. This makes mounting and dismounting the bike much safer. Conversely, mounting your bike on the drivers-side means you are exposed to oncoming traffic when the car is parked on the side of the road.

Attaching the SeaSucker Talon Bike Rack to the roof and windscreen is also an option. The 1/2? HDPE combined with the cushioning from the vacuum pads provides great flexibility. This enables the bike rack to mould to the roofline of your vehicle. SeaSucker Vacuum Mounts will work on glass, steel, fibreglass, carbon fibre and lots of other surfaces.

Faced with several roof obstructions our customer chose to use two Talon Bike Racks. This provided flexibility enabling them to mount their road bikes in the ideal place.

  2. cool…I am love mountain biking but quiet hard for me to do so..But this good is it a hassle free for me.

    1. Hi David,
      Thanks for your comments. The SeaSucker Talon is as hassle free as it gets. You can mount your bike on your vehicle within seconds. When you arrive at your destination it takes just as long to remove. Best of all there is no ugly permanent rack bolted to your roof and if you are flying interstate you can take the bike rack with you in your overhead luggage. There is no bike rack in the country that can do all of that.
      We are happy to help you in any way we can. Please feel free to contact us at anytime
      Kindest Regards,
