Thule's Vertex Bike Rack offers you a convenient and quiet way of transporting your bikes to the trailhead. To ensure that your bikes don't bang into each other, the Vertex uses a unique arc design to provide more space between your bikes and the hitch and the hatch. The rack can safely carry up to four bikes in Thule's Hold Fast Cradles, and the integrated heavy duty lock cable secures your two wheeled investments to the rack. The Vertex also features a folding pivot, allowing you easy access to the back of the vehicle. Thule designed the Vertex to be compatible with most setups, as it will fit both 2 inch and 1. 25 inch hitches.
