Hit the Road with Mont Blanc

Mont Blanc’s wide range of load carrier systems, cater to the increasing number of families choosing to spend their holidays on road trips.

Mont Blanc is an established name in the travel and leisure sector. Since the company was founded in 1947, Mont Blanc has developed into one of the leading manufacturers in this sector and is often the global car industry’s first choice of supplier in the face of extremely stiff competition. Mont Blanc has production sites in France, Romania and Sweden along with a sales and technical support centre in the UK, while its products are sold all over the world.

RANGE OVERVIEW

Mont Blanc offers a full and comprehensive range of products including cycle carriers, dog guards, roof boxes, roof bars and general accessories. The brand offers over 450 product references in stock at FPS, delivering orders the next day, all backed up with a 3 year guarantee and a spares service, to cover most needs.

CYCLE CARRIERS

The past few years have seen a continued growth in the sale of bikes in the UK. The London Olympics, Tour de France and Commonwealth Games have all influenced the sales of bikes and generated a growing demand for cycle-carrying accessories. Mont Blanc offers a wide choice of rear, roof and towball mounted cycle carriers.

The Super Rider+, Rear Trail, Rear Trek and Euromat rear-mounted carriers come with specific set-up and easy fitment settings for every vehicle and are listed in the approved application guides on the F:Drive. A range of universal roof mounted carriers is also available and many models are supplied with locks to secure the carrier to both the roof bars and the cycles. Some of these carriers can hold 29″ bikes and are built with an increased maximum weight limit of 17kg.

All towball carriers are lockable once fitted to the vehicle and offer 2, 3 and 4 bike carrying options. The platform carriers can be tilted to enable access to the boot of the car. They are partially manufactured from aluminium, and are fitted with a full lighting board. The carriers are fitted with oversize wheel holders and the universal securing system can accommodate cycle frame sizes from 22-80mm.

DOG GUARDS

The dog guard range provides universal fitting options for various vehicle sizes. An easy-to-use twist locking mechanism on the Tube and Mesh dog guards enables an easy and secure fitment, without the need for any assistance.

The Headrest dog guard provides a rigid and secure fixing that competes with many tailored/vehicle-specific dog guards available in the market. The quick attachment system comes with two different length hooks and enables universal fitment to most headrests. The side panels are easy to adjust and are provided with a single quick fixing clamping system on each side.

Mont Blanc dog guards do not require any tools for fitment.

ROOF BOXES

With an increasing number of families choosing to go on road trips, roof boxes have become a travel essential for most. Mont Blanc’s Cargo range of roof boxes are made from UV-resistant ABS plastic and have a standard safe-locking system that prevents removal of the key unless the box is locked correctly. All boxes come with two webbing internal securing straps and all relevant fixings to secure the box onto roof bars. The stylish, aerodynamic and modern design is aesthetically pleasing as well.

ROOF BARS

Roof bars form the basis of all roof carrying systems, support a wide range of large, bulky loads and are the perfect partner for roof mount cycle carriers and roof boxes. Mont Blanc has a solution for most cars, from the ever popular and straightforward steel Supra bars to the top of the range ReadyFit locking aluminium bars, part of the Easy Go™ ready assembled family, requiring no tools to fit.

EASY GO™ INNOVATIONS

Mont Blanc has always focused on the design and development of easy to use products. The ‘Easy Go™’ concept upholds this very idea in their design sensibilities, whereby such products are being developed that do not require any tools or assembly. The comprehensive range developed under this concept offers the end-user great choice, allowing an individual to create a highly practical load carrying system.

In 2015, the Design and Engineering team at Mont Blanc will continue to bring more new and exciting innovations to market, such as:
• a quick fixing system on the TowVoyage platform cycle carriers
• an upgrade on the popular TowQuick cycle carrier to enable fitment in seconds
• the brand new Sprinter roof mount cycle carrier features a long wheel tray to cater for the latest generation of 29″ wheel bikes
• additional features to the Super Rider+ rear mount cycle carrier, including a new 1-piece wheel holder, improved foam pads and a fitted cycle securing strap

Furthermore, the roof bar and cycle carrier applications are continuously updated to ensure fits, wherever possible, on newly released vehicles.

ASSURANCE OF QUALITY

Mont Blanc puts an earnest effort into safeguarding the environment, both in regards to manufacturing products and in the choice of materials used. The pursuit of quality is evident as the brand has been an ISO 14001:2004 company since 2000, along with certification for ISO 9001:2000 and ISO/TS 16949 for the automotive industry. The 3 year guarantee that Mont Blanc offers on its whole range is backed by rigorous tests on its products by independent laboratories as well as in-house testing facilities.
