The Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform with the Rhino Rack Universal Modular Backbone is Rhino Rack's upgrade to the old Pioneer Platform. With the new universal fit capabilities, you will now be able to move your rack to one vehicle to another vehicle without issue.
The new Pioneer Platform has additional accessory channels and the modular capabilities are increased. New channels are on both the front & rear extrusions. One of the best upgrades to the Pioneer Platform is that the wiring is integrated into each extrusion, and the corners can be drilled out for access. The Pioneer Platform is made from a strong, but lightweight aluminum with fiberglass corners reinforced with nylon. The aluminum is black powder coated for corrosion resistance. Designed to use with most Rhino Rack accessories, this rack even comes with an integrated measuring strip to help you mount everything correctly. With three different Pioneer Platform sizes available, teamed up with two different size Backbones this new setup gives you the versatility you have been looking for.
