The Sport-Link™ attachment provides a method of securely transporting bikes, skis and snowboards; towing up to 1400 lbs; or carrying up to 150 lbs. of cargo. This innovative MINI Cooper accessory weighs between 20 and 37 lbs. and attaches to the unibody frame of the MINI using existing bolts. That means no drilling, welding or holes in the roof of your MINI. Once the Sport-Link™ attachment is on your car, you won’t see it! Only the cool stainless steel ports show. For the MINI Cooper the ports emerge through the rear fascia. For the Cooper S they emerge directly through the two grilles. These ports will have spectators guessing—James Bond? Exhaust pipes? You can tell them the Sport-Link™ attachment ports are receivers for the Bike Rack, Tow-Link™ and Spare-Tire Carrier. The Sport-Link™ and its attachments are black powder coated steel. The ports are milled to accept the locking pins of all the attachments. Once the Sport-Link™ is on your MINI you’re ready for any of our attachments.
