9027 Apex Swing Away 4 Hitch Bike Rack
|Thule 9027 Apex Swing Away 4 Hitch Bike Rack - The Apex Swing Away 4 Bike Rack by Thule is their premium hitch rack in a swing-away version for convenient, easy rear of vehicle access. The Arc design of the arms gives bikes greater clearance off the ground and provides greater distance between bikes preventing contact and the swing-away design allows a fully loaded hitch rack to swing away from the vehicle for rear of vehicle access. A Snug-Tite receiver lock virtually eliminates hitch rack movement in the receiver and locks the hitch rack to the vehicle while the Hold Fast RDT (Road Dampening Technology) Cradles absorb the shock of the road protecting your bike during transport. The Folding Hitch Switch allows the arms to fold when not in use and tilts the carrier down for rear of vehicle access and the patented No-Sway Cage prevents bike to bike contact. With increased mast height for improved ground clearance and a heavy-duty integrated lock that allows you to lock the bikes to rack and stores in the hitch rack when not in use, you will be amazed at all this rack can do. When you are ready to get serious about your riding, you will want to make sure you bring the Apex Swing Away 4 Bike Rack by Thule.
Thule Apex Swing Away 4 Bike Rack: Carries up to 4 bicycles and fits 2 inch receiver hitches.
Dimensions: 47.5 in W x 17 in W x 10.3 in H
This is my third bike rack ever and my first Thule product. Fully impressed, with the rack. I bought it because the REI employee recommended it over the Yakima product based on his own personal use. Used it on a trip from CA to MD and the bikes were secure and no scratches or movement. It was the easiest and best protection of any rack I have had. Great job THULE!
Fahza Still Love Biking - Vancouver, Canada - 4 The swing-away is getting better from the original-I especially like the Apex's new stinger no wrench attachment! No need to get on your hands and knees to put on the bolt! But the rod arm to hitch bar doesn't look as sturdy as it's predecessor.The new rubber straps are a pain to secure the bikes;I had to get my son to help to pull them on! Not too many women will be able to put them on or take them off! The arms still need to be longer to be able to attach 4 of the newer DH mountain bikes.A little pricey but all in all it's a good bike rack.
