Thule Apex Hitch Bike Rack - 4 Bike


This premium hitch bike rack features Road Dampening Technology Cradles™ to absorb shock from the road and protect your bikes during transport. The rack's Snug-Tite Stinger™ is lockable, prevents hitch wobble, and is simple to install into a 1-1/4" or 2" receiver.

The Thule Apex 4 Bike Rack is loaded with features, making it convenient, stable, and secure. Innovative Hold Fast RDT (Road Dampening Technology) Cradles™ absorb shock from bumps in the road, keeping your bikes protected during transport. The Snug-Tite Stinger™ fits into a 1-1/4" or 2" hitch receiver, virtually eliminates hitch wobble, and locks to the vehicle. The Apex also features arched arms to keep bikes separated and an increased mast height for greater ground clearance. No-Sway™ cages include rubber bumpers for frame protection, preventing bike-to-bike contact, and an integrated handle makes the rack easy to carry. When not in use, the Hitch Switch™ allows the arms to be folded down and the rack to tilt down for access to the back of the vehicle. The Thule Apex 4-bike rack also has an integrated cable lock to secure your bikes to the rack and stores inside the rack when not in use.
