By Unsealed 4X4 3 Min Read

The popular Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform has received a prestigious Good Design Award Gold Accolade in Australia’s 2020 International Good Design Awards.

The Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform has picked up gold in the Good Design Awards – also known as the Good Design Tick. The awards are recognised as one of the oldest and most prestigious international design awards and have been running since 1958.


For this year’s Good Design Awards, 835 high potential projects were evaluated against a criteria for good design, design innovation and design impact. According to Rhino-Rack, “The Pioneer Platform has been honoured as more than a symbol of design elegance, but as a representation of hard work and dedication.”

The Aussie Pioneer Platform has scored an international “Good Design Tick”.

The Pioneer Platform was revised earlier this year after 10 years on the market. Manufactured from light yet tough black powder-coated aluminium, the Pioneer has fibreglass reinforced nylon corners, and the revised design allows for easy access to the internal channels of the platform’s front and rear extrusions for integrated wiring capabilities, which is ideal for those who want to install work lights and light bars. In addition, the Pioneer is compatible with a wide range of Rhino-Rack roof-mounting systems and accessories.

“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,” Rhino-Rack stated in a press release. “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.”
