Take your bikes anywhere
The Thule Vertex Bike Rack makes transporting your whips safer and more convenient than ever before. The Vertex’s unique arc design allows for easy loading, provides better ground clearance, and offers more space between your bikes. Thule’s Anti-Sway Cages prevent bike-to-bike and bike-to-car contact, and the Hold-Fast Cradles safely cushion and secure your bikes. The Hitch Switch lever allows you to tilt the rack down, giving you quick and easy access to the back of your vehicle. The Vertex holds two bikes and fits 1.25in and 2in hitch receivers.

- Q & A
Sturdy, but not perfect
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I am impressed with the quality and durability of this product. I was surprised at the size of it...it seemed huge and heavy when I first took it out of the box, but this is the first bike rack I have purchased so maybe that is normal. The rack comes ready for a 1.25 receiver, and has a 2" adapter. The whole apparatus is inserted into the receiver hitch with one short bolt that only bolts on one side. I am not sure why they designed it this way, but it seems a bit unstable and insecure. I went ahead and bought a locking bolt that goes all the way through. This is my only complaint.
Worth every cent. You get what you pay for. I did my homework and know Back Country only sells top quality merchandise. This bike rack is no exception.
