The Thule Vertex 4 hitch bike rack offers secure carrying capacity for up to 4 bicycles. A tilting design adds convenience for loading bikes and unloading bikes.
No tools are required to attach the rack to your vehicle's tow hitch, but use of a Thule Snug-Tite Receiver (STL2) or some sort of receiver lock is necessary to eliminate rack movement within the hitch receiver (locks sold separately). The height of the rack provides excellent above ground clearance. The included cable lock makes certain that the bikes are secure.
Capable of carrying up to 140 pounds (35 pounds per bike), the Thule Vertex 4 bike rack is carbon frame compatible.
REQUIRED FOR USE BUT NOT INCLUDED: Tow hitch with a 2" or 1.25" receiver (hitch adapter included) and a receiver lock.
