LeBra tonneau covers, some call them soft truck bed covers, constitute one popular brand of tarps or "toppers" that envelop the storage box of one's pickup truck. Such an accessory serves to spawn a more aerodynamic truck all the while producing a camouflaged storage space within the truck's bed. Quite a few truck cover makes and models beyond the LeBra brand name can be purchased. It appears all LeBra tonneau covers are made from soft canvas or vinyl.
For example, one LeBra cover, the Ultra-Lift tonneau, features easy lifting gas struts (makes raising the cover with one hand a snap), a strong clamp-on only, no-drill frame, a heavy-duty vinyl cover with reinforced bows for stability, a lifetime warranty from manufacturer on bows, rails and clamps, and a limited warranty on fabric. On the other hand, Le Bra's Rail-Mount tonneau cover boasts a two-step installation, but also requiring no drilling or tools. A heavy-duty vinyl tarp matches the exact dimensions of each respective pickup truck while arched bows provide additional support and rigidity.
There are other competing soft truck bed covers designed to be lifted up and suspended in mid-air utilizing aluminum or fiberglass staffs, much like the rods that suspend most car and pickup hoods. Still another LeBra model can be rolled into a stored position at the front of the truck bed. Being able to easily and deftly roll and unroll such an accessory makes for quick and easy access to any truck bed.
Like many other tonneaus, LeBra covers abate the vehicle’s wind resistance, increasing the truck’s acceleration. Because soft truck bed covers adequately seal off the truck cargo area, that rush of air cannot go into the cargo area, meeting undetectable resisting capabilities at the tailgate of the truck bed. Prior to this, vehicle drivers were provided with the option of substituting the basic aluminum pick-up tailgate utilizing a kind of plastic or rubber net-like barrier to diminish the effects of wind resistance.
While such tailgate "barriers" do decrease any limitations caused by wind resistance, they do not contribute as much safeness for cargo in the tail gate end of of the truck like a LeBra tonneau cover. A net isn't as hearty as the aluminum tailgate and it has proven to cheapen much more easily. Nets can also unfasten, leaving anything in the bed to disappear from the truck bed when the truck is operating at high speeds. Tailgate nets also debase the look of the pick-up truck, making it look cheapened or junky. Soft truck bed covers, like the LeBra brand, grant more protection, while at the same time giving your pick-up a really upscale appearance.
Figuring in security plus aesthetic esteem to pickups everywhere, LeBra tonneau covers constitute a valuable asset for anyone who owns a pickup truck.
