    Approved for use on cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs - not approved for fifth wheels, motorhomes, or towable campers

    The Freedom gives you the liberty to rapidly load and safely transport 2 fat bikes on your vehicle's 1-1/4" or 2" hitch. This compact, platform-style rack has wheel trays that are specifically designed for fat bike tires. And it's easy to use and weighs just 22.5 lbs, so you'll spend more time riding and less time wrestling with the rack or loading and unloading your bikes.


    Pivoting Cradles with Cushioned Straps

    Saris Freedom Cuscino Cradle

    You'll sleep tight knowing that your bikes are lovingly cradled in Saris' patent-pending Cuscinos - or pillows. These pillows are built into the ratcheting straps that hold your bikes by the downtubes or top tubes in the rubber-lined cradles. These straps are specially designed to avoid scratching or scuffing your bike paint during transport. The rubber-lined cradles also have grooves that accommodate brake lines and cables.


    Saris Freedom Adjustable Cradles

    The cradles pivot and slide up and down the central mast. This allows the rack to grab your bike's tube at the perfect angle. Plastic twist knobs secure the cradles in place.


    Adjustable Wheel Trays

    The injection-molded plastic wheel trays are larger and deeper than standard cradles and will hold tires up to 5" wide. The trays slide along the rack's horizontal arm to accommodate bikes with different wheelbases. These trays secure in place with plastic twist knobs. Extra-long, ratcheting plastic straps secure your bicycle's fat wheels to the trays.


    Standard cradles are also included so that you can carry 2 standard bikes, 1 standard bike and 1 fat bike, or 2 fat bikes - all with one rack.


    Folding Mast

    Saris Freedom 2 Folded

    You can fold down the upright mast by pulling a lever at the base. This allows you to easily access your vehicle's rear cargo area, and it means you can leave the rack in your hitch without it interfering with your cargo hatch or backup camera. The compact design also lets you easily store the rack in your garage when it's not in use.


    Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin and Adapter Sleeve

    Saris Freedom 2 Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin and Adapter Sleeve

    The threaded hitch pin helps to prevent the rack from moving and rattling around in your vehicle's hitch receiver. And the included adapter sleeve ensures that Freedom will fit both 1-1/4" and 2" hitches. An anti-rattle hitch lock (SA3022 - sold separately) and cable lock (SA981 - sold separately) are recommended to deter theft of the rack and your bikes.

    Perfect fit for two Ebikes Thanks!

    Your ebike fat tire does not fit our bikes. your measurement for the tires are way off. Now we have to take it to a welder and add on a foot on the main bar at each side for our bikes to fit. And these are 24" mountain bikes.


    Comments
    The maximum wheelbase for this carrier is 48 inches. The maximum tire width possible is 5.0 inches. If you are talking about your bikes being 24 inches tall, then the cradles on the central mast pivot and slide up and down so you can customize where they grab the bikes.

Both products, bike rack and receiver hitch otherwise looked to be very well built. Your company and representatives, Loren and Korren were very nice to work with on my purchase. Thank you

    Review from a similar Freedom in Hitch Bike Racks


    WOW WOW WOW That is what I just kept saying after installing this Saris bike rack. I have been looking for a bike rack for almost 3-4 months now. Thule and Yakima didn't have what I was looking for. Their solution for a 4-5 bike rack is too complicated, not efficient, and it would be a nightmare to manage on a regular basis. So I couldn't get myself to pull a trigger on any of those and I kept searching. Finally, I came to eTrailer and found out about Saris. That is where the love starts :) We are a family of 5 (3 kids and 2 grown-ups). I needed something that will help me load bikes fast, unload them and still be able to have access to the back of my Toyota Sequoia. Saris delivered in every way. Assemble of the item is straight forward. Instructions are clear and to the point. They even give you a yellow strip that helps you mark where the hitch needs to be in order to align hole openings for easier installation after you install it the first time ;) The back-up camera is still usable but not 100%. Tilting down the rack with the bikes on it is simple as 1-2-3. There is plenty of room left between the trunk door and the bike as you can see on the pictures. One HUGE benefit is that you do not need any extra parts for kids bikes. Not like with other brands. Saris delivers tremendously on this part too. No shaking, rattling, or anything that would make you notice that you have this amazing product on the back of your SUV/truck. I can't recommend it more. I am just surprised that this product has not been more advertised and represented compared to other products.


    Comments
    After a year this product is going strong. I have made my life easier by always putting same bikes in the same position heavier adult bikes closer to the car, and lighter kid bikes on the opposite side. This way I dont have to every adjust straps again. It makes everything so much easier. Just do yourself a favor and buy this product. You wont be sorry not for a little bit!

    Excellent product. Very easy to put together. Just bought 2 new ebikes. Because they have fenders this is the perfect carrier.

    This bike rack was designed for two bikes. I use it for one only fat tire e-bike as it is still within the weight restrictions. It carries my bike well and I'm pleased with it's performance. My suggestion is to always be within the weight restrictions when deviating from recommended us.

    This my 2nd Saris bike rack. This is my first platform hitch rack; it is so much easier to load the bikes and I have a much better rear view from the car. It was also easy to assemble. I highly recommend this bike rack.

    Review from a similar Freedom in Hitch Bike Racks


    This bike rack isn’t made for a woman to use and the rod with the clamps doesn’t fold out, only forwards and back and is always in the way of putting the bike on. It’s not functional. I’m very unhappy. I am transporting my car to Florida and need it out is return it. This is the second bike rack I’ve been very unhappy with.


    Comments
    Hi Kristina, Thanks for your feedback! For a bike rack that has the frame mounts move out of the way better, I would recommend the Swagman E-Spec Bike Rack, part S94FR . This will make it easier to load your bikes.

    Received the unit and installed it on the 2014 Honda Odyssey, no issues with the the install. Test fitted bike's (3) and drove around the neighborhood, so far it seems to be good. Will advise and update the rating on the first trip. NOTE ** it did take 2 months to get this unit, etrailer did keep me updated with the status. I understand with parts issues as bike parts are hard to find and also on backorder.

    Thanks so much for this great bike rack! I assembled it fairly easily, it was just as lightweight as I thought it would be, and my two ebikes fit perfectly on it! Plus, it looks great and I love knowing I bought an American made product from a company also in America!

    Review from a similar Freedom in Hitch Bike Racks


    Although I have net transported bikes yet ( picking up 2 bikes later today), I do want to share that purchasing it thru etrailer.com was very easy and it shipped very fast to my home. The Sarris Freedom was extremely easy to put together. It took about 10 minutes, basicly 3 bolts. Its very sturdy yet light, not bulky. Looks easy to store in my garage when not in use. Straps and wheel holders appear to be very well built. Got it on sale and the price was very good. Looking forward to trying it out later when picking up 2 new bikes. I plan on transporting somewhat locally between 5 and 25 miles each way. Initial feeling its a very nice rack.

    Review from a similar Freedom in Hitch Bike Racks


    This product works very well for the type of bikes we got (Electra Townie men’s and woman’s). Not the best rack for the type of vehicle (2013 Jeep Wrangler). Unable to open back hatch to let dog out until the bikes are off the rack. First trip was 600 miles with bikes in tow and didn’t even know they were there. I love the fact that this is a American made product. I am happy with my purchase. Thanks to the support staff at etrailer it was a great experience

    Review from a similar Freedom in Hitch Bike Racks


    I needed a bike rack to fit on my Jeep Wrangler that has 37 in tires and deep fuel wheels. This item with the extension, fit perfectly even with a backup camera on my bolts for my 37 in. Toyo spare tire. I am able to detach it with one screw and it is lightweight, so i only have bolt it on, add bike(s) and go. Easy to install minus the fact a 37 inch tire weighs a lot. Etrailer.com didn’t have the extension part in stalk but kept me informed of every step of the way. I still received it within 5 business days with customer service followed it all the way through. Great company.

    Bike rack works great for my truck. I was able to load all the bikes and still fold down the tail gate which was real important to me. Folds up easy when not in use. I would also like to thank etrailer for getting the bike rack shipped out quickly. It arrived the day before I had to leave on vacation which made loading up the truck a lot easier.

    Review from a similar Freedom in Hitch Bike Racks


    I selected this rack because the mounting points do not interfere with fenders. it is very easy to use and adjust after the initial set up. I typically do not leave the rack on the car went not in use, but the tilting function is useful if it is on without bikes. Easy access to the trunk with bikes attached by using the tilt lever. Working well after 1 year of use, and seems like it will last many more.

    After we replaced a loose screw and tire holder, this model has worked fine. I appreciate that its not too heavy, only 21lb. As long as we keep tightening the components and avoid 4x4 very rough FS rds, this model serves well.

    Review from a similar Freedom in Hitch Bike Racks


    I assembled the Saris Freedom 4 bike and upon mounting the 3rd bike, the tire holder just snapped. I didn't even hit the road (thank goodness), it was a test mount after first assembly. I can't imagine if I was actually driving and I hit a bump and this occurred on the highway. Another reviewer stated the wheel mounts cracked and Saris sent them a set, but this isn't good enough for me. This is a safety issue and this product should be recalled. The plastic is brittle and unacceptable. I'm returning right away.

      Yes, the Saris Freedom Bike Rack for 2 Fat Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches # SA4412B-FB would be a great option for your Blix Sol Eclipse step-thru bike. This bike rack uses soft cradles that wrap around the bike frame making it compatible with a large variety of bike designs, including those with fenders or baskets. The cradles will not scratch your bike frame. I recommend adding Hitch Lock # SA3022 and Cable Lock # SA981 to keep your bikes and bike rack secured to your vehicle's receiver....

    • Recommended 2 Bike Carrier For Electric Fat Bikes That Weigh 65lbs
      I recommend looking into the Saris Freedom 2 Bike Platform Rack # SA4412B-FB. This is a 2 bike carrier which is specifically designed to transport electric fat bikes; it can also hold regular bikes without an issue. It can hold up to 5" wide tires which should be more than enough for any fat bike. The weight capacity is 60lbs per bike, so you will want to remove the battery from your electric bike when transporting to reduce the weight. This fits 1-1/4" and 2" hitch receivers. If you...

    • Recommended 2-Bike Carrier For 63lb Electric Bikes On Class 1 Receiver
      The bike rack you were looking at is not designed for fat bikes, but there is a fat bike version: Saris Freedom 2 Bike Platform Rack for Fat Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches # SA4412B-FB. This can handle up to 5" wide tires and has a weight capacity of 60lbs per bike. Since you stated that your bikes weigh 63lbs with the battery, I recommend removing each battery pack to reduce the weight so that you do not exceed 60lbs. One thing to note is that this only works with class 2 or higher trailer...

    • How Do I Fit My Specialized Levo E-Bike on My Saris Freedom Bike Rack?
      I have an answer for you. I went ahead and did some research on your Specialized Levo e-bike, and it looks like there are potential mounting points to the Saris Freedom # SA4412B-FB at the top bar of your bike's frame (instead of the thick center bar that has the integrated battery) that can serve an alternate mounting point. For a possible second mounting point, one of the things you can do is maneuver the cradle so that it clamps the top part of the center downtube (over the top where...

    • Recommended Carrier For Various Styles Of Electric Bikes
      The Kuat Transfer V2 2-Bike Rack # KU84FR is an excellent bike rack that is compatible with motorhomes, RV's, and travel trailers. This has a weight capacity of 60lbs per bike and can hold up to 3" wide tires; for fat bikes use Fat Bike Adapter Kit # APBK which is an add-on that allows for up to 4.8" wide tires. There are built-in locks to secure the bikes and carrier to your vehicle. While this holds 2 bikes, you can use 1 Bike Add-On # KU57FR to haul a third bike on this rack; keep in...

    • Which Carrier Will Accommodate 2 60lb Electric Bikes On 2019 Jeep Wrangler With Spare Tire On Back
      I would look into the Saris Freedom Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # SA4412B. This has a weight capacity of 60lbs per bike and is a highly recommended bike rack for electric bikes. This should clear your spare tire without an issue, but to verify you will want to measure from your trailer hitch pin hole to the rearmost part of your spare tire. The closest part of this bike rack is 12" from the trailer hitch pin hole so if your measurement was less than 12" you...

    • Recommended Bike Rack To Carry 2 Lectric Fat Tire e-Bikes on Jeep
      Lectric Bikes is right on the money. My go-to recommendation is the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE, part # HLY84FR. The rack can handle 2 bikes weighing up to 80 lbs each with tires up to 5 inches in width. To determine if the rack will work on your Jeep, you'll need to find the hitch pin hole in your hitch receiver tube. Measure from the center of the hole rearward until you clear either the furthest rearward point of the back bumper or the furthest rearward edge of the spare tire...

    • Can I Haul A 55lb Electric Bike On The Thule DoubleTrack Pro XT Bike Rack for 2 Bikes?
      The Thule DoubleTrack Pro XT Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # TH92BJ has a weight capacity of 35lbs per bike and you do not want to exceed that 'per bike' limit. Unfortunately you cannot add both 35lb capacities together to get an overall weight capacity of 70lbs as this bike rack was not designed in that manner and I do not recommend using it for a 55lb electric bike. For your application, I would look into the Saris Freedom 2 Bike Platform Rack for Fat...

    • What Bike Rack For 1-1/4" Hitch and 70 lb. E-Bike
      Yes, we have some options for you but in order to make the weight limit rating will need to remove items from your e-bike when hauling them. Something that is suggested on all e-bikes even when being transported on a bike rack with a heavy weight rating. The Saris Freedom Bike Rack for 2 Bikes, # SA4412B , fits both 1-1/4" and 2" hitches with use of a removeable sleeve. This has a weight rating of 60 lbs. per bike. But if you remove the battery and possibly the seat from your bike...

    • Are Fat Tire Cradles on Saris Freedom Bike Rack Compatible with Smaller Tire Widths?
      The Saris Freedom 2 Bike Platform Rack for Fat Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # SA4412B-FB will work well for all the bikes you referenced. The fat tire cradles work fine with smaller tire widths. If you instead want the Saris Freedom 2 Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # SA4412B, then you can just trade out one set of the cradles with the Fat Tire Adapter Kit for Saris Freedom Bike Racks # SA4419 and you'd be all set.

    • Carrying Two Fat Bikes with the Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack with Adapters
      If the Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack, part # C18085 can carry two fat bikes will be determined by the weight of the bikes. Each position is limited to 45 pounds, and the individual bikes in this position can't exceed this weight capacity, even with the fat bike adapters, part # C18091 equipped onto the rack. If you're buying for two fat bikes, you can save a little bit by buying the dual Fat Bike kit, part # C18085-FB. If you have heavier fat bikes, and this rack won't work for you, I recommend...

      Fat Bike Straps # TH985101 will allow a bike with tires up to 4-11/16 inches wide to fit the EasyFold XT, # TH903202, but not 5 inch wide tires.
