Security - Transport your bikes with care. The Thule Apex 5 bike hitch rack combines security, convenience and style. This system includes a heavy-duty integrated bike lock to lock your bikes to the rack; for convenience the lock retracts into the rack mast. The bike rack is locked to your trailer hitch with the integrated Snug-Tite receiver lock. The Snug-Tite receiver lock also tightens the rack to the trailer hitch to substantially reduce rack movement and rattle as you travel. Moreover, the entire system is compatible with Thule's One Key Lock System (lock cores and keys included).
Protection - The Apex 5 features the Hold Fast Road Dampening Technology (RDT) Cradles that absorb the shock of the road. The RDT cradles are not just made of shock absorbing material, the part of the cradle that the bike frame rests on actually moves up and down and acts as a mini shock absorbing system, providing much more shock absorbance than a simple cushion. The Apex bike rack also has patented No-Sway Cages to limit swing and bike-to-bike contact. Arced arms and taller mast height provide greater ground to bike clearance.
