Whether you're driving your dirt shredding companions to Moab for the weekend or bringing your family to the mountains for vacation, the Thule Vertex Bike Rack securely holds five of your favorite road and mountain bikes. It secures to two inch trailer receivers, ensuring a robust connection for carrying a full load. Hold Fast Cradles provide a stable, scratch free surface for mounting your beloved bikes with Anti Sway Cages to prevent 'em from banging into each other at highway speeds. Securing your two wheeled investments while you grab a bite from that greasy spoon diner right you've been eyeing up, the rack's integrated cable lock dissuades thieves from simply walking away with your bikes. Another cool feature is Thule's signature Hitch Switch, which tilts the loading arm downwards for easy access to your trunk or rear hatch. The Hitch Switch also folds upwards to alleviate clearance issues when you're finished shuttling bikes for the day.
