Pace Edwards EL200 Rack System Transforms UltraGroove Family of Tonneaus Into Super Haulers - New Smartphone App Increases Convenience for Electric-Operated Tonneaus

Pace Edwards, an innovator in tonneau covers for pickup trucks, launches the EL200 elevated rack system. Works with the company’s UltraGroove family of tonneaus, capable of carrying up to 200 pound of cargo above the height of the cab. On display at the SEMA show in Las Vegas - booth #35039, Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall, upper level.

Centralia, WA, October 30, 2018 --( The UltraGroove™ family of retractable tonneaus from Pace Edwards, renowned for enabling active owners to access the truck bed even with fully loaded-cargo racks above the tonneau, now allows pickup owners to haul even larger items. A new elevated rack system – the EL200 – provides a secure place above the height of the cab for hauling large, cumbersome items for work or for play.

On display for the first time at this year’s SEMA trade show (LVCC, South Hall, Upper Level, booth #35039), the EL200 system can carry up to 200 pounds of large cargo. The EL200 includes four elevated risers by Pace Edwards and two Thule-made bars. Simply insert the feet of the risers into the built-in UltraGroove rail extension system (RES™) and attach the bars. Pace Edwards’ new rack system works with any UltraGroove tonneau – the UltraGroove, UltraGroove Metal, and UltraGroove Electric.

Recreational users can securely carry bulky items, such as kayaks, canoes, standup paddleboards, and surfboards. Commercial users can haul up to 200 pounds of ladders, lumber, and other materials.

New Smartphone App Coming Soon
Pace Edwards is also making opening and closing of its electric tonneaus more convenient with the introduction of a new smartphone app – the Smart Retract Remote. The new Apple- and Android-compatible app allows owners of Pace Edwards tonneaus that can be operated remotely – the UltraGroove Electric, Bedlocker, and Retractable Utility Bed Cover (RUBC) – to open and close the cover with a tap on a smartphone. The Smart Retract Remote app will be available for download at a date to be announced.

“We’ve made the great UltraGroove tonneau line even better by adding the ability to securely handle big, bulky cargo above the bed and cab, allowing users to elevate their lifestyle,” states Eric Mitchell, Sales and Business Development Manager, Pace Edwards. “The UltraGroove has always allowed pickup owners to secure large items above the cover, but now our customers have the flexibility to safely transport even larger, unwieldy cargo that won’t neatly fit in a pickup’s bed space behind the cab.”

The new EL200 Rack System will be available in the U.S. and Canada from Pace Edwards dealers, as well as leading online retailers, starting in January 2019. The price will be announced at the time of launch. The Pace Edwards UltraGroove line, as well as all of the company’s premium tonneaus, are proudly made in America. For more information, visit
