Inno Tire Hold loaded on vehicle

The heavy-duty Tire Hold is a great rack for riders who need to transport their e-bikes, carbon frame bikes, bikes with a large fork, and 27.5 semi-fat bikes. It also carries mountain bikes and road bikes. It grips your bikes by the wheels so it won't scratch your frames, it's easy to load, and you can tilt it with bikes loaded for cargo area access and fold it up for storage.


Pivoting Upright Arms with Adjustable Tire Grips

Inno Tire Hold pivoting upright arms

The Tire Hold has pivoting upright arms with adjustable tire grips that grab your bikes firmly by the wheels - not the frames. These grips allow you to rapidly load and unload your bikes, and they won't scratch or scuff the paint. The grips have slots on the inside so you can adjust them to accommodate the wheel size of each bike.


To load your bikes simply set the tire grips to the correct tire size, set your bikes on the trays, rotate the upright arms against the tires, and press down on the tire grips until they're snug.


Inno Tire Hold pivoting upright arms

The arms are secured by ratcheting mechanisms that slide along the trays. Simply press the silver button on each mechanism to release and slide.


Grooved Wheel Trays

The wheel trays have 3 grooves in the track that accommodate narrow 18c road bike tires up to 3" wide mountain bike tires. The Tire Hold doesn't have cradles for the wheels like most platform-style bike racks have. This allows you to position your bikes on the rack exactly where you want them, not where the cradles dictate you place them. This helps prevent your handlebars and other bike parts from bumping into each other.


Folding and Tilting Design

Inno Tire Hold folded away from vehicle

The rack tilts down - with or without bikes loaded - so you can access your vehicle's rear cargo area.


Inno Tire Hold front-mounted hand lever

The front-mounted hand lever on the base is easily accessible even with your bikes loaded. No more crawling through bikes or squeezing between the rack and the vehicle to hit the tilt-release lever. Simply squeeze it until you see the red indicator, then lower the rack. When you raise the rack back up you will hear a click and the red indicator will disappear.


Inno Tire Hold folding up against vehicle

When the rack is unloaded you can squeeze the hand lever to fold it up for storage. This makes it easier to park in small lots at the trail head or in cramped parking garages, and it keeps the rack out of the way of other vehicles and riders.


Tool-Free Installation with Anti-Rattle Device

Inno Tire Hold anti rattle device

The hand knob at the base of the rack lets you tighten the shank in your receiver. Just slide the shank into your hitch, insert the hitch pin, and turn the knob until snug. The knob deploys an anti-rattle wedge at the tip of the shank to help take play out of the hitch connection.


Inno Tire Hold integrated cable lock

You can set the integrated stopper so that the shank automatically aligns with your hitch pin hole. The first time you install the rack you can adjust the sliding stopper so that it touches the face of your hitch. Then each time you install it going forward it's set up so that the hole in the shank automatically lines up with the hitch pin hole. This prevents you from having to bend down and check for alignment each time you install the rack on your vehicle.


Inno Tire Hold integrated cable lock

The rack also has a removable sleeve that lets you convert the shank for use in 1-1/4" hitches. Use the included Allen key to remove the sleeve from the shank.


Complete Security for Bikes and Rack

Inno Tire Hold loaded on vehicle

The hand knob on the front of the rack has a keyed lock that secures the rack to your vehicle. To secure your bikes to the rack, run the thick steel cable through your bikes' frames and tighten the hand knob down over the cable's looped end.

Video Transcript for Inno Tire Hold 2 Bike Platform Rack Review

Randy: Hey guys, it's Randy here at etrailer.com. Today we're taking a look at the INNO tire hold. This is a platform style bike rack. It's been designed for use in inch and a quarter, or two inch hitches. And it offers the folding and tilt away function.This is going to be a great solution for transporting just about any type of bike, from one destination to the other. It's loaded with a lot of nice features which we'll take a closer look at now.Now something I really like about the design of this rack and the way it works.

And I think it's probably why it's such a favorite with a lot of bikers out there. Is that we're able to move our bikes side to side, and not sacrifice their security. So on a lot of other platform style racks, basically you're going to have a wheel cradle. This front tire has to fit in that cradle. The front tire on the other side has to fit in that cradle so that positions our handlebars and our seats generally to where there's a little bit of contact.When I installed the second bike here, I had a little bit of contact.

So what I was able to do was just let this one come forward a little bit, let that back who come in a little bit and I shifted my bike forward by about three inches. As you can see now, no contact here, no contact here. I think you can be pretty satisfied in heading down the road with your bikes in that position, knowing they're not going to rub up against each other.The tilt away feature of the rack, or all the folding position is really, it's a handle right here on the rear. You see more and more platform racks going that way, but I really like this location. I like where it's positioned, because we don't have to try to get in and under here and release something and we're not reaching through our bikes.

Right here, pull, allow it to come down till it stops. That gives us the access we need for the back hatch here. Just like when we had it in the stored position. In most situations, unless you've got a really wide set of handlebars, you're going to be able to get your back door open and closed.And you'll notice here the red sticker. This sticker indicates to us that we are not ready for travel.

Of course our bikes are tilted away. So we'll just lift up. Once it gets in the inappropriate position, that disappears and we'll know we're safe to travel.Generally with platform style racks here, they're going to tilt away from your vehicle of course, to get in the platform position. Kind of just like this. That's when we get access into that rear cargo area. With this one, however, we're going to have an intermediate position. So we can bring it down just that far. Get access into our cargo area. We're not going to have to worry about bending all the way over to let it down, or picking up that weight each time. Just a little convenient thing there that'll make using the rack a little bit easier.Now the rack's been designed to work with wheel sizes anywhere from 20 up to 29 inches, so it really covers just about all of them there. Basically, we've gotten an adjustable top hoop. You can see we've got the two tabs on each side, and those are designed to go into two of these. So we can really customize it for each application, get it in the slot you want slide it in and then just lift up. It's going to have it locked in position for us. Until we push it down and then pull out to put it in a different position.Now holding that in place is going to be the nice large steel powder coat overall hoop. That's connected right down here and our ratcheting mechanism is going to slide along. Easily push that, that releases it. As we pull it back, we can get the tension we want on it.Now that design is one of the most popular, really out there for a lot of different biking situations. Holding the bike with just the front hoop and rear hoop or rear hoop in front hoop, which ever way you do it. We have no frame contact. The only spot our bike is being touched front or back is going to be right here. So it's on the tires Protects the of our frame of our bike. This also works out really well for carbon bikes. Also for road bikes. So, just about any type of situation you're going to have, your bike's going to have the ultimate protection.Now the racks been designed for use with wheelbase is anywhere from 34 up to 48 inches. And we have a 60 pound capacity per slot. Now that's going to work out for just about all types of bikes. Even some electric bikes, they often recommend that you remove the battery on them for transport. So if your electric bike comes in at under 60 pounds without the battery, that'd be a good solution for you too.As far as tire width goes, we can go all the way up to three inch and all the way down to the really narrow 18c. To help accommodate that wide variety of tires. You can see right here in the bottom, we've got the narrow groove for the road bike. Comes out slightly for our more standard mountain bike. Then even a little bit wider here for those larger tires. And the same comes up on our top wheel hoop here. You can see road bike tire there, and then it widens out for those larger tires.Overall, the rack for a platform style rack, it's pretty light that offers an aluminum construction. It has a powder coat finish on it. So it should resist rusting corrosion for a very long time. That powder coat's going to stay looking good for a nice long time. A few of the components, some of your handles, some of your buttons here are going to be plastic. They all seem really durable.Another great feature on this rack and one than I really appreciate, is going to be the stopper. Once we have it set properly, as we slide this in and it's going to make contact with our hitch. As it does that, it lines up our pinhole so no longer are we going to have to get down there and look, make an adjustment, get down there and look. Makes it really simple. Get it in the correct position on your stop. Slide your pin in, and you're ready to tension your knob here in the back.Now a couple of measurements that'll be helpful for you determining whether this rack's going to fit on your vehicle appropriately, or even fit in your garage for that matter. In the flat or usable position. From the center of our hitch pin hole to the outer most edge of our rack, it's about 35 and a half. Also from the center of our hitch pin hole to the closest point here, it's about six and a half.You can see here in the stored position, we've really reduced the amount of rack that we've added to the back of the vehicle. It's down to about 14 and a half inches. Now this is going to help us out in parking lots if there it's a little bit tighter quarters. Or even in our garage, giving us the ability to maybe not remove it from the vehicle each time.Now before we install the rack into our vehicle, we want to make sure that our stinger's the appropriate size. This is a class three hitch, so it's a two inch by two inch receiver tube opening. Out of the box this is going to be ready to go on.If you're going to be using a class two hitch, you'll see the inch and a quarter by inch and a quarter shank here. Just gonna use the provided tools and we'll pull out the screw located here, here and here on the bottom. Then we can just take our aluminum sleeve off there, be ready to install it in that class too.We don't have to do that in our case, so we're going to just take our rack. We're going to get it slid in. You're going to see we're going to slide that in, so it lines up with our hitch pin hole. We're going to take this. And you see it's got the two, if I can get a hold of it. See it's got the two tabs that stick out. Those need to go through the two openings, rotate it. And we'll want that to face either down or up. At that point we can take our tension knob here at the back, and we'll take that knob, you can see the hex shape there. We want that to go over the hex shape on the back of our rack. We're going to turn that clockwise till we get it tightened up appropriately.And then you'll see that rectangular shaped hole, that's for our locks. So this is going to slide on. It goes into that hole. And we can use our provided key to turn that in, lock it in place. That point, let me see, that's locked on there. Our rack won't go anywhere.Now, to load your bike, of course. We need to get the rack into the platform position. Just pull our handle there, get it down. Now we're going to press the gray button. There's going to be one located on each of our hoops here. Press and then just lift. You'll want to continue to hold this as you lift your hoop up and out of the way. Once we have those fully open, ready to place our bike down.Now as we load up our bikes, just with any other rack, we want that heaviest bike closest to the vehicle, and work your way lighter.We'll place that on and get it close to center where we want it. It's time to bring our arms in. Get a little bit of compression there and we'll come to our other wheel. Doesn't matter if you use backer front, which direction, bring that in, get that nice and secure. It's going to hold our bike nice and tight. And at that point just want to do the same thing for your next bike.Now the included cable lock. You'll want to take that around the frame of your bikes. Once you've got them loaded up and it's gonna sit in the slot here on the back side of our knob. So we can secure both our bikes and our rack, with just one key. And as you can see, there's not a ton of extra slack here. But it is accessible, and it is effective.Now this set up is going to be a good way to secure your bikes to the rack, but I gotta tell you it's not my favorite that I've ever handled. Generally it's maybe a little bit easier, but getting down here in reaching underneath just offers a little bit of a challenge.Now I move really big fan of this bike rack. I liked the way it holds the bikes. I've had my hands on hundreds of different bike racks here, and this one seems to work very well. Also for a two bike platform style rack, it's not that heavy so it'd be manageable to get in the back of the vehicle.I do have kind of two knocks on it though. I think maybe other racks do it a little bit better. That cable lock is one of them. With some of the Tullys, and some of the Kuats. It's going to be stored right here. So then we just loop it around, attach it back. There seems to be a more accessible location. Rather than trying to get that cable behind the knob down there lower.Another thing, it's just a visual complaint of mine. When tightened down properly. This side of the rack here, if you can see it, it's about three quarters of an inch or an inch higher than this side of the rack. Now we've tested several of them out, and that's just the way they work. It doesn't affect the performance of the rack. It doesn't affect the quality of the rack per se, but it is a slight visual thing. And if that aggravates you, the Kuat Envy would be a nice substitute.Now that we've got our bikes loaded up, we've got them secured. We're going to head out to the test course. We're going to see what it looks like in action, put it in some real world situations, so you can see how it's going to look in the back of your vehicle.We'll start by going through the slalom. This is going to show us the side to side action. This simulates turning corners or evasive maneuvering.Once we get to the alternating speed bumps, we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or pothole, or driving over uneven pavement. Once we get to the full speed bumps, we'll see the up and down action. This will be just like driving in and out of a parking lot, parking garage or driveway.

Makes loading and unloading your bike a breeze. No messing with tire straps, frame locking do-dads or any other type of nonsense. Just throw the bike on, ratchet down the tire lock arms and you are good to go. The whole things tilts down so you can get access to your trunk. I have this on a Tesla Model 3 and I have no problems accessing my trunk with a bike in the closest position to the car. The trays fold up when not in use. 652389

Do you have a question about this Hitch Bike Rack?


  • Will Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Platform Rack Interfere with Backup Camera on a 2014 Ford Escape
  • The Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Platform Rack # TS01B is one of the possible bike racks that will give you the least amount of interference with the backup camera on your 2014 Ford Escape. The other option is the Inno Tire Hold # INH110. The bottom of the arm on the Transfer sits about 18" from the top of the receiver while the same measurement for the top of the arm is 19-3/4". The tray for the Tire Hold is about 14-1/2" from the top of the receiver while the top of the handle is 18". Since...

  • Height of Inno Tire Hold 2 Bike Rack When Folded Up
  • From the top of the hitch opening of the Inno Tire Hold 2 part # INH120 to the highest portion of the rack when in the folded up position measures 28 inches. This would probably block at least part of your backup camera when folded up but it's hard to say exactly how much would be blocked.

  • Bike Rack That Makes Loading 2 Heavy E-Bikes Easier With Locks
  • Art, I appreciate your attention to detail. To start with your first question the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 part # HR1450Z-E is not designed to allow the center mast to fold down while the bikes are on the rack. It would make the unloading/loading process much easier but it is not possible. It is possible for a thief to remove the frame from the wheel that is held on the rack with the wheel mount only but it would probably take a bit of time before they could wiggle the frame loose...

  • Comparing Ground Clearance Of The Inno Tire Hold 2 Vs. Kuat NV Bike Racks
  • The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to farthest part of rack when folded down is 33" on the Kuat # NV22B and 18-1/2" when folded up. Compare that to the Inno # INH120 at 36" when folded down and 14-1/2" when folded up, the Inno provides some additional clearance when folded up while also extending out an additional 3" when extended which could potentially cause the rack to scrape when loaded if that already occurs with your Kuat. An additional measurement we did while...

  • Performance of Inno INH120 Tire Hold Bike Rack in Winter Weather
  • We have not heard of any corrosion issues with the Inno # INH120 Tire Hold Bike Rack. Given its aluminum construction, corrosion really shouldn't be a problem. Inno tells me that they will warranty corrosion that's due to normal usage. If the rack has been submerged in seawater for a month, no. Under normal usage, yes. I've linked you to a product description video that shows the features of the bike rack. Unless you'll be using the rack every day, it's a good idea to remove the rack...

  • Availability of Add-Ons and Spare Parts for Inno Tire Hold INH142 Bike Rack
  • We do indeed carry the Inno Tire Hold bike rack, # INH110 for a 1-bike, # INH120 for a 2-bike, # INH142 for a 4-bike version. The racks aren't discontinued, and we can get many spare parts from Inno. This particular rack isn't capable of being added onto. Saris offers a very similar rack, # SA4031-33 for a 2-bike, or # SA4032-33 for a 4-bike. A 1 bike add on is available as part # SA4031 or a 2 bike as # SA4034.
