A common problem faced by rock climbing expeditions these days is the lack of good truck support. Hot Rock Global Challenge is the first group to embrace Big Red Truck technology and has enjoyed a significant competitive advantage both in access to new markets and cost of deployment. Big Red Truck technologies continues to innovate to bring you the very best Big Red Trucks with all the latest cost saving features you would normally associate with more expensive transportation technology. Now, more than ever, it's the colour of your truck not the grade you climb that dictates the success of your venture.
Make other climbers green with envy - GO RED!
