Railblaza unveils recycled storage solution

New Zealand-based mount and accessories expert Railblaza, known for its innovative products and swift response to market demand, has entered the storage crate market with its Gear Hub.

True to its sustainability policy, the base and sides of the Gear Hub – designed as an all-in-one storage solution for anglers – are manufactured from 100 per cent post-consumer recycled material.

Since 2018, Railblaza estimates to recycle 10 tons of plastic per year through continued investment in in-line recycling at its plastic moulding plant, solidifying its recycling efforts globally.

The Gear Hub’s features include 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, explained: “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 overhanging 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.”

The Gear Hub has vast applications and is sure to be a favourite for paddle sport, fishing and boating enthusiasts, however it will likely be a popular choice in the outdoor adventure market too.

Since 2010, Railblaza has been manufacturing a versatile line of products and mounting systems to accommodate a diverse range of applications, whether on land or water.

Based in Auckland, New Zealand, it also has an office in Houston, Texas, representation in Europe and currently exports to more 50 countries.
