Solid product. Unfortunately the cradles cann't be move around to create larger space between bikes. Switch to fulltilt model instead, which is more flexible in cradle position.


excellent condition.

Pretty easy to install (once I realized that that hitch lock was in the locked position and hence wouldn’t tighten!). Secure and solid piece of kit. A bit tricky getting a BMX bike on the rack, rubber cradle pads can get detached if a bike catches on the way past but seemed to fit back in easily enough. Bikes will be in contact with each other at times, depending on size and configuration so we have a little bit of frame rub but all in all a good product.


Installed the rack with the extremely easy instructions and it is very solid. No bouncing around while driving. The bikes attached to the rack do not move at all while driving. Unconventional bikes may require an adapter tube to affix securely. The rack locks in the hitch and is easy to install and take off when you need. Great rack. Would recommend 100%!

Just began using it. I love the function and stability of the rack. I got the 5 bike rack and took 2 carrier positions off so i have room to carry 3 mountain bikes with space to protect them from banging into each other. I haven't had a chance to try that yet. Hope to know soon, though, as my buddies get a chance to get out and ride.

The second type of bike rack is a platform rack where the bikes mount via the tires. These racks can carry any bikes under the weight limit as long as your tires aren't too fat to fit into the cradles. The final type of bike rack we sell is a hanging rack. Two-arm hanging racks can cause difficulties with some frames, wo

This rack doesn't offer rear vehicle access out of the box. However, if your trailer hitch is 2" you can use the Yakima Backswing to add this feature to the rack. Just note the 250 lbs BackSwing weight limit.
