Being the forward thinking company that BAK Industries is, we recognized that the BakFlip tonneau cover was all things to everyone, as it was really the only tonneau cover to let you use your truck like a truck. We quickly realized however, that there are folks out there that need more than just bed space. They need to really put their trucks to work. After some research, it became apparent that it was pretty much impossible to have a hard tonneau cover on your truck and still use a ladder rack. That’s why we set out to create a tonneau cover that allowed full use of the truck bed, full security when needed and also allow it to be used with a highly functional sports / contractors rack. The result – The BAKFLIP CS!
The BakFlip CS installs and operates exactly the same way as a regular BakFlip tonneau cover. That is, the rails of the tonneau cover simply clamps to the side of your truck bed with just 3 or 4 clamps on either side and then the BakFlip seamlessly attaches to the rails.
The genius of the BakFlip CS is in the design of its rails. The CS rails have an integrated extrusion built into them that accommodates the BAK sliding rack system. Once the BakFlip CS is clamped on and installed, the rails allow you to easily slide the rack system to any position up and down the sides of the truck provided incredible versatility and function.
The BakFlip CS rails also accommodate functional accessories such as sliding tie downs so that you can secure a load in your bed or a load on your rack. This convenient and brilliant functionality is unique to the BakFlip CS.
BakFlip CS rails and rack cross members are made from strong aluminum and powder coated with a rugged black finish. The rack is designed to handle extreme use and cannot rust or corrode at all. The BakFlip CS rack uprights are made from laser cut, unbreakable stainless steel and then powder coated match the rest of the accents of the cover, rails and cross members.
Ultimately, the BakFlip CS is as much a piece of art as it is a stylish, practical, functional, state of the art tonneau cover and rack combination. It operates seamlessly and is built tough. It truly is the ultimate piece of equipment for outdoor enthusiasts, contractors, surfers, kayakers, skiers etc.
Another fantastic advantage of the BakFlip CS is how modular it is. The system can be setup within minutes to give your truck the appearance of a contractor or outdoor guru, but can just as easily convert to a sleek, low profile ride that sports nothing but a stealth tonneau cover. The options are many and the downside is really non existent.
In years past it would have been necessary to install a small, space limiting toolbox across the back of your bed in conjunction with some sort of aftermarket rack. This old-school approach is honestly completely opposite to BAK’s vision. Now your whole bed becomes a lockable trunk that integrates with a seamless, sliding rack. N=There’s no more need to have a bulky toolbox on the back of your truck that takes up valuable space and causes the rest of your bed to be exposed.
Once you acquaint yourself with the BakFlip CS you will soon see why BAK Industries is the leader in the tonneau cover industry today.
