Toyota Prius V Bike Rack Questions

  • I would need to know how much each electric bike weighs to determine if you will be able to carry them on the 2015 or 2016 Toyota Prius V. To use a hitch mount rack, which is going to be the only way to carry heavier bikes on a Prius, the hitch option I recommend is # 24847. This is a Class I hitch rated for 200 pounds tongue weight. Many of the bike racks that are rated for a Class I hitch do not have a very high capacity. So the Class I compatible bike carriers that might...

  • The Swagman XTC2 part # S64670 that you referenced would be a great option for you. This is one of our best selling racks and it works great on the Toyota Prius like yours. The wheel straps really don't do much as the hook of the rack is what really secures the bikes to it. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well on a Prius like yours. Curt requires the use of their stabilizer strap part # 18050 when using their hitch to carry a non-supported...

  • Since only Class l hitches only are available for your 2015 Toyota Prius V, you will be limited to a 2-bike carrier. I recommend the Thule Helium Aero, part # TH9042. This is a 2-bike carrier and is constructed of lightweight aluminum. This carrier weighs just 18-1/4 lbs and has a weight capacity of 70 lbs or 35 lbs per bike. This bike carrier will tilt when empty to allow access to the rear cargo area of your Prius. The carrier also includes locks that secure the bikes to...

  • The Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 3 Bike Rack # HRF2-3 is going to be the best rack for you 2015 Toyota Prius V. It is designed for hatchback vehicles with spoilers so the mounting straps will not make contact and damage your spoiler. The anti-sway cradles also prevent the bikes from coming into contact with each other to protect your Prius. I've attached a video of the Over-The-Top attached to a 2013 Toyota RAV4 which will have a similar fit on the hatch. If you're going...

  • The Yakima KingJoe Pro part # Y02625 has been confirmed as a fit for your 2015 Toyota Prius V and for your 2009 Subaru Forester so it would be a great option for you. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Swagman Easy-Out Women's and Alternative Frame Bike Adapter # 64005 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for...

  • The shipping weight of the Rola TX-102, part # 59400 is 31.98 lbs. Minus the box and packaging, the rack weighs right at 27 lbs. If you'll be transporting women's bikes or bikes with sharply-angled top tubes, you might also consider a frame adapter bar like part # 64005. The bar spans the distance between the handlebar gooseneck and the seat post, which provides a secondary attachment point for the bike rack. This allows the bike to be carried level, which maximizes ground...

  • I haven't yet seen a Class II hitch available for a Prius, usually you'll see a Class I. Although both a Class I and II have the same 1-1/4 inch by 1-1/4 inch receiver opening, the Class 1 has a much lower tongue weight capacity (200 lbs versus 300 or 350 lbs for a Class II). Your hitch should have a label on it that will positively identify the class and the tongue weight capacity. If you have a Class I hitch, the hitch and bike rack manufacturers agree that no more than...

  • We have a trunk mounted bike rack that is a fit for the 2014 Toyota Prius V with a spoiler, but the Saris Guardian 3 is not a fit. I confirmed this with my contact at Saris. Check out the Hollywood Racks Trunk Bike Racks # HRF2-3. This rack has an additional upper arm piece that moves the top straps up and over that spoiler so no weight is put on it (since the spoiler is not meant to support weight). I have included a link to a video that shows how it works. If you will...

  • Class I hitches can not handle the additional weight and leverage that the third bike will put on the hitch. The weight of the third bike will be extended pretty far out and away from the hitch pin so the leverage would be too much for the hitch. Regardless of how light your bikes and rack would be I cannot recommend you install more than two bikes at the hitch of a vehicle like yours with a Class I hitch installed. The easiest way I can recommend you carry 3 bikes with...

  • The Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 3 Bike Rack, part # HRF2-3 is confirmed to be a fit for your 2014 Prius V. This bike rack is designed for vehicles with or without spoilers and will work well for you. This bike rack will carry 3 bikes and has durable cradles that help protect the bike finish and keep the bikes from banging into one another. The bike carrier also fold for easy storage. When carrying bikes with alternative frames like kids bikes or women's bikes I recommend...

  • For a bike rack you would need to first start with the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1000R and then use the trike adapters part # HRTRK-ADP for each side of the carrier to allow the quad setup to fit the rack. For a hitch you then would want the Draw Tite part # 24847 which is confirmed as a fit for your 2014 Prius V as well.

  • I have a trunk mounted bike rack solution I can recommend for you, but the Saris Bones part # SA805 has not been confirmed as a fit for your 2014 Toyota Prius V so I cannot recommend it for you. I recommend the Yakima Fullback trunk rack part # Y02633 because we recently asked our install and demo team to pick their favorite trunk rack based on performance and ease of install/use and they all picked this trunk rack. You will really like this rack. The four easily adjustable...

  • After an extensive search though our bike rack offerings, I arrived at a couple of bike carrying solutions for you. If you can lighten the weight of each bicycle by just 5lbs each (perhaps by removing the battery pack?), the Saris Freedom SuperClamp, part # SA4025 could work for you if your bike does not have a front fender or luggage rack. The Thule EasyFold, part # TH9032 would be your best bet. The rack can carry two bikes weighing up to 65 lbs apiece. The rack holds the...

  • The Thule Raceway trunk bike rack # TH9001PRO will fit your 2014 Toyota Prius V but I would NOT recommend it as it will add too much stress to the factory spoiler. The best option for your 2014 Toyota Prius V is the Hollywood Rack # HRF2 because it will mount so there isn't any stress on the factory spoiler. Please note the maximum weight capacity is 70 pounds. I have linked a installation video as well. You will also need an Adapter bar # HRBA-PRO depending on what type...

  • Your 2014 Prius V is designed for Class l trailer hitches only so that restricts the amount of bikes that can be carrier in the hitch to 2, but I do have a solution for you that will allow you to carry 3 bikes. I recommend a trunk mount bike rack like the Hollywood Racks Over-The-Top, part # HRF2-3. This will work with vehicles with or without a spoiler and can carry 3 bikes weighing up to 35 lbs each. I have attached a link to a product review video you can check out. If...

  • It is not likely that you will be able to get all 4 bikes on the roof of your 2014 Toyota Prius V, even if you alternate the directions. There is also the possibility that the combined weight of the bikes and carriers they are on would exceed the roof capacity (consult the vehicle owners manual or Toyota for the roof capacity). Three bikes are likely not going to be a problem though you may need to alternate directions. What I recommend is to put 2 bikes on the roof and...

  • I have a solution for you, but the reason that you should only load 2 bikes on the Saris Porter Hitch Mounted Bike Rack, # SA404B, when using a Class I hitch, is because with 3-4 bikes loaded, even if you are under the tongue weight, there is too much weight that is far from the hitch. This produces more torque on the tongue and can actually bend or twist the Class I hitch. You will want to transport the third bike on the roof of your 2014 Prius V with a roof rack and roof...

  • A traditional hanging bike rack such as the Thule Helium Aero # TH9042 will not hold your Elliptigo Arc but I do have a solution for you. I recommend a platform style bike rack such as the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1000R. It can handle the wide wheelbase of the bike, the hooks have a long reach to account for the unique elliptical-style pedals, and it is rated for use on a Class I trailer hitch on your 2013 Toyota Prius V.

  • There are many hitch mounted bike racks that will fit on your 2013 Toyota Prius V, but the bike rack that I would recommend is the Kuat Sherpa Platform Bike Rack, # S101. This is a quality bike rack that includes many great features. There is no contact with the bike frame, the shank has a 3-1/2 inch rise for better ground clearance and plenty of bumper clearance. Another bike rack that you may want to check out is the Swagman XTC-2 Platform Bike Rack, # S64670. This bike...

  • With a spoiler installed on your 2013 Toyota Prius V, the bike carrier I recommend is the Hollywood Racks Trunk Bike Rack, part # HRF2. This bike rack is designed to fit hatchbacks with spoilers like you have on your Prius. I have attached a link to a product review video for this bike rack you can check out. The Yakima KingJoe Pro 2 Bike Rack, part # Y02624 is not designed to work with your Prius V with the spoiler. If you are planning on carrying bikes with alternative...
