Creators of world class roof racks and mounting systems, Rhino-Rack are proud to announce that their ‘Pioneer Platform’ has received the prestigious Good Design Award Gold Accolade in Australia’s 2020 International Good Design Awards.

As one of the oldest and most prestigious international design awards in the world since 1958, the gold accolade, also known as the Good Design Tick, is among the most respected and recognised international design endorsement symbols in the industry. With this accolade, consumers can be assured that the Pioneer Platform has been professionally designed to the highest standards and evaluated through rigorous testing and processes.

"I am incredibly proud of the team at Rhino-Rack for all their hard work, creativity and innovation towards our new Pioneer Platform. It's fantastic to receive recognition for their efforts from a prestigious award such as the International Good Design Awards" - Rhino-Rack Owner Richard Cropley with the Good Design Award.


Crafted for adventurers, the Pioneer Platform’s lightweight modular design means that it has been created to withstand the harshest conditions while remaining stylish and intact. The use of high strength aluminium together with fibreglass reinforced nylon corners exhibits excellence in durability, strength and mass, as well as environmental accountability.

A significant design achievement for the Pioneer is its ability to be infinitely adjusted and fitted to a multitude of vehicles without compromising appeal or requiring modifications. Not only does this equal a significant reduction in the use of tools and time, but the included wiring and accessory channels allow for cleaner and safer installation of accessories. Making the Pioneer Platform the most versatile and modular platform on the market.


For this year’s Good Design Awards, 835 high potential projects were evaluated against a criteria for good design, design innovation and design impact. Of these entries, the Pioneer Platform has been honoured as more than a symbol of design elegance, but as a representation of hard work and dedication. Designed for the adventurer in mind, the Pioneer Platform is the perfect companion for your travel needs.
