A Thule hitch mount rack is a popular choice for numerous consumers. Whatever your needs are, one of the Thule hitch-mount models is likely to accommodate your requirements.
The load capacity of their models ranges between 2-5 bikes. The units can fit 2-inch receivers, 1.25-inch receivers, or both (these models have hitch adapters that convert to fit both types of receivers). Last but not least, Thule offers a selection of units that fit bikes with disk brakes and unusual frame designs.
Thule units feature one of two construction materials: heavier high-strength steel and ultra-light aluminum. Heavier models are sturdier; lighter models require minimal lifting and therefore are more convenient to use.
Thule’s technologies include: “stay-put” cradles, no-sway cages, quick release, and a swing-away option. “Stay-put” soft rubber cradles conform to your bicycle’s frame, secure it and prevent scratches resulting from the swaying of the bicycles. No-sway cages provide exceptional stability for your bicycles, prevent bike-to-bike contact, and protect your car; even at highway speeds, your bikes are safe and secure. The quick release feature is meant for hassle-free access to the rear of your vehicle. Swing-away models can swing a fully loaded hitch to the side and allow access to the rear of your vehicle; this convenient feature eliminates the need to unload and reload your bicycles if you need access to the rear of your car.
Thule hitch-mount racks are perfect for people who need to access their bikes at a lower level, want to keep the roof of their vehicle free for hauling other items, or want to reduce fuel consumption resulting from wind resistance created when hauling bikes on a roof rack.
Thule racks offer a great value for your money. They are long-lasting, secure, easy to mount and remove, and convenient to use.
