Their flagship product is the Active Cargo System (ACS).  It is a patented cargo management system that allows you to carry all your gear securely. Its modular design is easily upgradable with numerous accessories. The ACS eliminates the shortcomings of truck racks currently on the market. Its  design not only allows you to carry large items above the roof line, but its center load bar can be slid out of the way to carry large items such as motorcycles and bicycles. Its “Quad Rail” T-slot mounting technology allows endless accessories to be securely attached allowing complete customization!

Bernhard Leitner, says: “I have owned pickup trucks for over 24 years and none of the truck racks available served my needs. I needed a rack that could carry my gear in waterproof lockable storage and not get in the way when loading my motorcycles. I wanted a product that had a factory look and finish that enhanced the look of the truck and not distract from it.  Leitner designs is owned and operated by adventure seekers. We hit the trails every weekend testing and refining our products. Everything we design, engineer and manufacture is done with your next adventure in mind.”
