Front Runner Outfitters Launches New Slimsport Roof Rack System

February 1, 2022

LOS ANGELES (Feb. 1, 2022) – Front Runner Outfitters (Front Runner), the South African-based adventure travel gear company known for dependable, innovative and thoughtfully designed overlanding and camping equipment, announces the launch of the Slimsport Roof Rack system. The new roof rack system provides an additional entry point in the overlanding market beginning with compatibility for five popular vehicle models.

Following in the footsteps of the time-tested Slimline II Roof Rack system, the Slimsport Roof Rack (MSRP $625-$919) is a new roof rack option designed for activity-focused drivers that do not require an expedition-grade build. Whether the adventure ahead calls for hauling sporting equipment for the trail, water or mountain, the Slimsport Roof Rack transitions seamlessly from dusty backroads to city streets. With Front Runner being a trusted outfitting source for overlanding equipment for decades, the Slimsport Roof Rack instills the same trusted performance Front Runner is known for, at a price point that doesn’t sacrifice quality.

By integrating the mounting feet into the side rails, creating a lower profile cross-slat and including a rubber-trimmed wind fairing, the rack sports a sleek and unobtrusive aesthetic that translates to minimal drag and noise. To maintain streamlined integration, Front Runner has made new accessories available such as the 40-inch Lightbar Wind Fairing (MSRP $75-$143) and the Slimsport Side Mount Accessory Bracket (MSRP $31), allowing users to outfit their vehicle to suit any type of adventurous lifestyle. Furthering the possibility to customize, the Slimsport Roof Rack shares the same t-slot channels found on the slats of the Slimline II rack system, allowing integration of the majority of Front Runner’s top-mounted rack accessories.
