    When you're on the go, you need a bike rack that can be loaded quickly. After all, the less time spent loading and unloading, the more time there is for riding. But along with fast loading, a bike rack should safely support your bikes so they'll be in the same condition when you reach your destination as they were when you loaded them. The Vertex Hitch Bike Rack is the rack you need for the ultimate in ease of loading and bike protection while en route. The arced rack arms make loading effortless and space the bikes further apart. The Hold Fast Cradles gently cushion the bike frames and they can be positioned on the rack arms for optimum bike spacing. The Anti-Sway cages attach between the cradles and vertical downtubes to prevent bike damage from bike-to-bike and bike-to-vehicle contact.

    The Vertex is available in models that can transport up to 2 bikes, up to 4 bikes and up to 5 bikes. The up to 2 bike and up to 4 bike versions fit 1-1/4" and 2" receivers, while the up to 5 bike version fits 2" receivers only. When not in use, a flip of the new and improved Hitch Switch allows the rack arms to be folded down and out of the way, to make parking and garaging easier. And if you need access to the trunk, hatch or tailgate with the rack installed, again activate the Hitch Switch and the rack can be tilted down and out of the way. When removed from the vehicle, a handy integrated handle enables the Vertex to be carried and handled easily.

    To secure the rack to the vehicle and virtually eliminate hitch rack movement in the receiver, we recommend the Thule Snug-Tite™ receiver lock (sold separately). Theft of your bikes can be prevented by locking them to the rack with the Thule 6 ft. braided steel cable lock (sold separately). The Vertex Hitch Bike rack comes with everything necessary for installation, including detailed instructions. The limited lifetime warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product, and warrants the product against manufacturer's defects in materials or workmanship.

    Thule Vertex Hitch Bike Rack
    | Posted by | (Yardley, PA)

    I received my bike rack ahead of schedule and in perfect condition. Directions were easy to follow. This is my first bike rack, so I didn’t know that for a girl’s boardwalk type bike you need a separate frame adapter, so the bike will rest nicely on the rack. I wish the sales rep on the phone would have suggested this, but I ordered one, and it arrived soon enough. The other item I wish I had purchased when ordering the rack is the locking trailer hitch lock. This allows you to lock the rack when traveling, so thieves can’t steal your rack and bikes! The bike rack comes with a typical screw that is attached and removed with a wrench. The screw is tightened through the hitch on my Jeep, through the threaded adapter, and goes about half way through. The locking one goes all the way through, which in my mind made it feel more secure. I ordered the lock, and it works nicely. I have a two-inch hitch, so I had to use the adapter that comes with the rack. It is held on with one small screw. This was concerning to me, but I was assured by the sales rep that it is more than enough to hold the rack securely to my hitch. The rack folds as advertised, so you can open the rear hatch on your vehicle. The rack seems heavy duty, and the bikes ride nicely. This company follows up with emails and is very thorough. I will purchase from them in the future.

    The box came and we put it together. Wasn't very difficult. Solid bike carrier. Wow! It was a little pricey though.
