This platform-style rack carries 1 or 2 recumbent bikes on your 2" hitch. Sturdy steel rack features anti-rattle handle; easy-to-use clamping system; padded hooks; adjustable wheel mounts; folding, tilting design; and hitch and cable locks.
Give your bikes the royal treatment by transporting them on the Sport Rider Special Edition platform-style hitch bike rack. This feature-packed rack allows you to carry one or two recumbent bicycles on the rear of your vehicle. The rack has extra-long arms to hold recumbents with wheelbases up to 74 inches long and wheel hoop adapters to accommodate the smaller front wheels on recumbents.
An integrated anti-wobble handle on the front of the carrier tightens the bike-rack shank to your hitch receiver to prevent the rack from rattling around inside the receiver. You don't need to pull out a wrench every time you install the rack on your hitch - just turn the easy-to-access handle to keep the rack from rattling.
Precision-Slide Clamping System
Constructed of rugged steel with a sleek black powder coat finish, the Sport Rider SE2 uses cushioned hooks to stabilize your bikes. The precision-slide clamping system allows the hooks to slide up and down the rack's upright mast. Just squeeze together the push-to-release levers on one of the hooks, slide the hook to the desired position, and release the levers. The hook secures in place and cannot move until the levers are depressed again. The hooks are different sizes and each one functions independently, meaning the rack can carry two bikes of the same or different heights.
Adjustable Wheel Holders
The wheel holders accommodate bicycles with wheelbases up to 74 inches, and you can adjust the wheel hoops by sliding them along the horizontal arms. They are secured in place with hand knobs. Velcro-like hook-and-loop straps secure your bike's wheels to the holders.
The included pair of wheel hoop adapters easily attaches to the wheel holders to accommodate the front wheels of recumbent bikes or 1 kid's bike with 16-inch or 18-inch wheels.
Folding, Tilting Design
The Sport Rider's tilting design makes it easier to access your vehicle's rear cargo area and to load your bikes. The rack folds up against the back of your vehicle when it's not in use. And the arms fold up for compact storage.
The Sport Rider SE2 includes a hitch lock that secures the bike carrier to your vehicle's 2-inch receiver. The rack also comes with an 8-foot-long, vinyl-coated, braided steel cable lock that deters theft of your bikes.
Both the cable lock and the hitch lock have push-to-lock bodies and are conveniently keyed alike. Keyhole covers on the locks keep out dirt and moisture.
The Sport Rider SE2 is expandable and adaptable. If you want to carry two standard bikes in addition to your recumbents, a two-bike add-on accessory (HR1475 - sold separately) is available.
If you want to transport one recumbent delta trike or one recumbent tadpole-style trike with the Sport Rider SE2, you can use the HRTRK-ADP adapter (sold separately). Or if you want to transport one standard recumbent bike and either one recumbent delta trike, one recumbent tadpole-style trike, or one adult trike, then you can use the HRTRK-ADP-2 adapter (sold separately).
