Carrying capacity of up to 15kg per bike. (Make sure the nose weight of your tow bar is sufficient to support the combined weight of your bikes and the rack, , if towing this must be added to the trailer nose weight too)
Due to the variation in shapes of vehicles and trailers or caravans we cannot guarantee that all combinations will be able to work together. If you are unsure about whether it will work with your vehicle please contact us for advice.
We recommend before using the rack, you should fit it and load the bikes and then check the clearance to the caravan/trailer on full lock and on an incline to make sure that the bikes cannot touch the trailer/caravan.
Arm Options: Available in 4 bike Standard arms or 4 Bike Discovery arms with a 150mm (6 inch) offset to clear spare wheels or vehicles with very flat backs, although while towing we usually recommend carrying only 2 bikes to maintain clearance to the body of your caravan during tight turns.
4 Bike Arms: The arms have 425mm of space for hanging the bikes by their frames. They can carry up to a maximum of 4 bikes although 3 bikes may be the maximum for bikes with wider tyres, handlebars, or pedals. You will only be able to carry 2 bikes whilst towing.
All higher racks use our Behind the Ball mounting because this is the only one that you can tow with. This is not suitable for anything other than Standard 2 bolt tow bars.
Weights: 11.5 kg Standard Rack, 12 Kg Discovery Offset.
