Founded on Fun.
Designed with Intention.
Built with Purpose.

Suweeka was started by enthusiastic gearheads, cyclists, product nerds and outdoor adventurers. We believe that the way we transport our gear should be re-engineered from the ground up. We’re on a mission to seek out the very best possible solutions for connecting, organizing and transporting your gear. We want to energize and empower your adventures and we believe your gear transportation system should be as inspired and considered as the gear it carries. We obsess and test everything in search of the perfect balance between strength, adaptability and durability. Suweeka: a modular, vehicle rack system – engineered to support the lifestyle of active and passionate people in original and innovative ways.
