Railblaza enters new category with environmentally-friendly Gear Hub


Railblaza, the New Zealand based supplier of mounting systems, has entered the storage crate market with the Gear Hub.

True to its sustainability policy, the Gear Hub’s base and sides are manufactured from 100% post-consumer recycled material. Since 2018, Railblaza estimates it has recycled ten tons of plastic per year through continued investment in in-line recycling at its plastic moulding plant.

The Gear Hub has numerous features to make it far more than just a storage crate, says Railblaza. It includes four integrated rod holders, nine accessory tracks to mount additional Railblaza products, two recessed handholds, rod and reel tethers, multiple tie-down points and enough space for eight tackle boxes.

David Jacobs, Team England kayak angler, said: “It is well designed and constructed and is easy to put together – and knowing Railblaza products, I expect it will last a long time!

“I have not added any accessories to the Gear Hub yet but I’m looking at all the options available before I make my choice. On a recent river trip, I got caught out by the current and was pushed under by an over-hanging tree. My kayak flipped and I ended up in the drink! Normally this would mean a lot of lost gear, but thanks to the rod lanyards and the self-latching lid, I lost nothing.”

Established in 2010, Railblaza heralds from New Auckland and has an office in Houston, Texas, and representation across Europe. It exports to over 50 countries globally.
