At MOS, we offer simple, unique and memorable products for athletes and nature lovers to escape without any compromise. Keeping in mind those guidelines, we have developed and conceived the MOS Rack, a car roof rack that lowers from the roof top, to the side mirror of the car, 61 cm lower. At MOS, we believe that car equipment storage needs to evolve, loading and unloading à bicycle, a kayak, a surf board or anything in the cargo box should not be out of anybody’s reach. People who aspire in living great experiences, exciting adventures and passionate sports seek for a roof rack as a way to carry all the equipment they need. Though, getting access to the gear should not be part of the sport. Our main goal with the MOS Rack is to build the handy roof rack, the rack that you can access as easily as the trunk. Let us maximize the experience, take the sport out storing your equipment and put it where it belongs, in the great outdoors.
