Protection - Transport your bikes with care. The Thule Vertex 5 bike hitch rack combines convenience and style. The Vertex features new Hold Fast Cradles that cushion the shock of the road. The Vertex bike rack also has patented Anti-Sway Cages to limit swing and bike-to-bike contact. Arched arms and taller mast height provide greater ground to bike clearance.
Convenience - Vertex 5 bike hitch rack comes assembled and is easy to install. Pull on the lower Hitch Switch, lower the stinger and tighten. Slide the stinger into the receiver and secure. Lift the upper Hitch Switch and raise the bike arms until they click in place. The rack is ready for use. Once installed the arched arms can be folded down when not in use, and the rack tilts away from the vehicle for trunk or tailgate access.
Optional - The Snug-Tite receiver lock (sold separately) eliminates hitch rack movement and locks the rack securely to your vehicle. Thule's 6 foot Braided Steel Cable (sold separately) secures your bikes to your rack.
