You're on the road with bikes loaded on your hitch rack, and you need to get something stashed in the rear of your SUV; maybe a camera to take pictures of that giant ball of yarn you've been told is just down the street. With an ordinary bike rack you would need to unload your bikes to gain access to the hatch, but not with the Thule Apex Swing Hitch Bike Rack. The Apex Swing design allows a fully loaded hitch rack to swing away from the rear of the vehicle for access. With the Apex Swing your bike rack stays loaded and you can get anything you want from the back of your hauler, whenever you want it.

Along with the swing-away design, the Apex Swing Hitch Bike Rack shares the elements of the other Apex hitch racks that ensure your bikes arrive at your destination safe and secure. Like the other Apex hitch racks, it has several features that eliminate excess movement and protect your bikes from damage en route. The Hold Fast RDT Cradles that support your bikes absorb road shock and prevent its transfer to your bikes' frames. The patented No-Sway cages attach to the vertical downtubes to prevent movement and bike-to-bike contact during transit. The rack arms have an arc design that provides greater distance between the bikes, also helping to prevent bike-to-bike contact, and gives the bikes greater clearance off the ground. The increased mast height also provides greater ground clearance. Even the rack-to-receiver attachment (Stinger) eliminates hitch movement.

To prevent theft, the tightening knob on the Stinger can be locked, and the bikes can be locked to the rack with the integrated cable lock. When not in use, the cable stores inside the hitch rack. The rack arms can be folded down when not in use and the carrier can be tilted down when empty to allow access to the rear of the vehicle. When the Apex is removed from the vehicle, the integrated handle makes it easy to carry.

The Apex Swing Hitch Bike Rack carries 4 bikes and fits 2" receivers only. It 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.
