Saris Freedom 4 On Vehicle

The Freedom gives you the liberty to rapidly load and safely transport 4 bikes of nearly any shape, size, or style on your vehicle's 2" hitch. This easy-to-use, platform-style rack is loaded with features, including cradles and straps that grip your bikes by their frames and a conveniently located lever that lets you tilt the rack down by yourself without having to unload 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, top tubes, or seat posts 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 masts. 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

Saris Freedom Wheel Holders

Injection-molded plastic wheel trays slide along the rack's horizontal arms to accommodate bikes with different wheelbases. These trays secure in place with plastic twist knobs. Ratcheting plastic straps secure your bike's wheels to the trays.


If you want to carry a fat bike on the Freedom, you can replace the rack's wheel trays with fat bike cradles (SA4419 - sold separately). Or, if you want to carry 2 recumbent bikes, you can replace the horizontal arm closest to your vehicle with a longer arm (SA4415B - sold separately) that accommodates recumbents with up to 57" wheelbases.


Folding, Tilting Design

Saris Freedom 4 Folding Lever

You can tilt the rack down and fold the rack up with a front-mounted push lever.


Saris Freedom 4 Tilted

You can tilt the rack down with bikes loaded or unloaded to access your vehicle's rear cargo area. Just pull out the threaded bail pin located at the base of the rack, push down on the lever, and lower the rack until it clicks into place. This should provide enough clearance for the hatch to fully open and close.


Saris Freedom 4 Hatch Clearance

You can also fold down the upright masts for access to you cargo area when no bikes are loaded. Simply pull the integrated levers and fold the masts down to the left or right.


Saris Freedom 4 Folded

You can fold the rack up against the back of your vehicle with it's not in use. Just fold down the masts, press the front-mounted lever, and raise the rack up until it clicks into place.


Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin

Saris Freedom 4 anti-rattle hitch pin

The included threaded hitch pin helps to prevent the rack from moving and rattling around in your vehicle's hitch receiver. An anti-rattle hitch lock (SA3022 - sold separately) is recommended to deter theft of the rack.


You can thread a cable lock (SA981 - sold separately) through the hole in the base of the rack and through your bike frames to secure your bikes to the rack.

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. 655654

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!

Bike rack seems perfect for our needs. I haven't gotten a chance to use it yet (weather), but I put it together and tried out our bikes on it. 2 adult hybrids, a 20" kids mountain bike and a 16" kids mountain bike. Everything fit perfectly - way better than I've seen with other racks. I agree with the other reviews that positioning everything is tedious, but if you keep the same bike alignment, it's a one-time annoyance. Might up to 5 stars after I actually use the thing (or lower), but for now, 4 feels right. One of the wheel cups did arrive damaged, but I called etrailer while I was putting it together and they mailed me out a replacement that day. Great customer service! Note: This is one of the lightest 4 bike racks I looked into and I'm glad I did. 50 pounds is a lot to line up with a hitch receiver as is. I'm pretty sure I would need help installing the thing if I went with a heavier rack. 905416

We have very expensive road bikes. This rack has lots of secure locking sites and is really sturdy! Bikes do not wobble or bounce around. Great carrier! 903914

The review is about the product and not etrailer. The product does what it says. the directions could have been a bit clearer. tried it out and works fine. I'm not sure that I would pay for a tilting rack the next time as I think that it's just too much. Etrailer - WOW. talk about customer service. this is a company to do business with if there is a choice. there is so much good information to use for research purposes (eg videos, pictures), easy ordering, follow up emails during ordering process etc. 903605

I really wish I had gone with a different option. This rack is functional and secure, but annoyingly difficult to use. It takes a while just to get all the different cradles and straps positioned right for your configuration of bikes. And then it is difficult getting them loaded with those uprights in the middle, and not much clearance between bikes. A lot of fiddling with pedals and adjusting seat heights to make it work each time. If you have a different configuration of bikes you have to redo everything. The ratcheting straps stick really bad, which gets frustrating. I guess I expected more from a $500+ rack. Not a lot of pros that I can think of. 775790

This is a great platform rack. It is super easy to set up and adjust. It was actually exactly what I was looking for. After mounting it on the truck, I positioned each bike where I wanted it and adjusted it accordingly. When it came time to use it I loaded all 4 bikes in about 5 minutes. The reason I gave 4 stars instead of five is I had one of the tire trays break the first time I used it. I hope this was just a defective part and not an indication of poor quality. etrailer did an amazing job getting the part replaced and quickly sent to me. Overall I would recommend. 719044

Package arrived sooner than expected! Thanks! Bike rack was easy to assemble. Looking to haul 4 bikes around, this will make life easier. More time on the bikes and less messing with the rack. Plus, it stores in the folded position keeping it out of the way, on the back of your vehicle or in the garage. We have a truck camper and for the first time will take all 4 bikes and be able to to access the back door of the camper with the tilt down function. 590826

Purchasing the product, pricing and speed of delivery were all awesome. Have used etrailer before and they have always been great. Assembling the bike rack was not too difficult. Their instruction manual could use a little work though. It took some decifering to figure out. But I LOVE the bike rack. Much easier to use than any previous bike rack I have owned. And it can stay on the vehicle for extended periods, without being bothersome. I LOVE IT! 501659

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. 146064

Review from a similar Freedom in Hitch Bike Racks


I received my Freedom 2 rack yesterday. It took me about 10 minutes to assemble it with no issues at all. This morning, I put the rack on the back of my 2014 Ford Explorer, and began to load my bike. The rack attached easily to my 2" hitch receiver, and when I tightened the bolt, it was a very sturdy and stable fit. I made the adjustments required to mount my bike on the rack, and found that it traveled securely and very stable. My only issue with the Freedom 2 is the hold-down straps on the wheel and tube brackets. I think a better ratcheting system and a better qualitty strap would greatly enhance the unit. Otherwise, I'm very happy with the rack. My carbon fibre hybrid and my grandson's road bikes will be easily transported to wherever we want to ride! 391673

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. 572296

Review from a similar Freedom in Hitch Bike Racks


i give it three rating it is a nice rack and really light and easy to handle...The only two things I don't like about it are. I cannot put my short wheel base recumbent on it unless I do a lot of rigging... and two the cups for the wheel are plastic and I have had one break. Look up the replacement part and is a reasonably priced but the shipping is ridicules. I have patch it with gorilla tape and is working fairly well.. Am looking for another type so I can just put the recumbent on easily. 281792

Review from a similar Freedom in Hitch Bike Racks


I bought this rack for several reasons, including its price point and light weight. I also like where its designed and made. The American flag on the back is a nice touch. I also wanted a solid platform rack that would hold two bikes securely for long road trips and highway speeds. I didn't see much need for a heavier tilt-away rack since I can easily access the rear of my small hatchback through the back the seats. This hitch is easy to assemble and ready to go in minutes. Its light weight makes it easy to slide into the hitch and the threaded hitch pin holds the rack tight. I also bought a cheap socket wrench and a deep 19mm socket to keep in the car. There is still a small amount of side to side wobble when the bikes are loaded, but not much. You won't notice any wobble when driving unless the road is really rough. Be sure to check out ETrailer's road test video of this rack. This is a good sturdy rack. I also got the hitch strap that Curt recommends to secure the center upright support to the car. I also recommend getting the Saris locking hitch pin and cable combo with matching keys. This rack does not fold up completely because the hitch arm is fixed, but its still light and easy to move around and store. And you could always take the hitch arm off for longer term winter storage. It does take some fiddling to get the tire mounts and drop bar mounts lined up for each bike so if you have four different bikes like I do, you'll find yourself doing that quite often. Eventually I will memorize the locations for each or mark them somehow on the rack. My two large road bikes fit like a glove but I could see there being some difficulty with getting seats and handle bars to clear sometimes, which means more time fiddling with the mounts when loading up a friend's bike. I also like how well centered the bikes are and how little side overhang I'm able to achieve, which is also important for long road trips and highway speeds (less drag = better mpg). All of my bikes are well centered and only my big 29" mountain bike with its long wheelbase sticks out to the side much. On the downside, but not for me, it does take some strength to lift the inside bike up and over the center support, and doing so carefully without hitting the back of your car. This could be a problem for some, especially if you have a big heavy townie or mountain bike. This is also dependent on how high your hitch receiver is off the ground. Mine happens to be very low to the ground so I don't have to lift the bikes as high as I would on a larger SUV for example. So other platform racks may be a better choice if you're concerned about lifting your bike up to or over shoulder height just to get it on the rack. To sum it up, the Saris Freedom 2 is a great rack for a good price and I couldn't be happier with my purchase, and for all the great info and advice from the wonderful people at Etrailer.com to make it so easy! Etrailer rocks! 346699

Review from a similar Freedom in Hitch Bike Racks


Completely inadequate for my application (heavier-than average eBikes; within the weight specifications of this Saris Freedom rack). eTrailer customer service should have advised against this rack, and for one more suitable for the task. But eTrailer did not recommend a more suitable rack. The rail from the hitch receiver to the rack is too long - on my installation, at least eight inches of wobbly lever could be removed and there would still be plenty of clearance between the rack and my vehicle bumper. That cartoonishly-long lever evokes the memory of Archimedes' long lever to move the world - in the case of this Saris Freedom rack, that long lever just makes the bikes and the rack wobble unacceptably. Of course, if the end-user modifies the rack in an attempt to do the design engineering job that was not done in Madison, WI, the lifetime warranty is voided. Replaced this rack with a Thule Easyfold. Way more money, but it does the job because it was designed to do the job. 420946

    The overall length from the center of the hitch pin hole to the farthest point of the The Saris Freedom 4 # SA4414B when folded up is 22" per Saris. Measure 22" from the center of the hitch pin hole on your vehicle to determine how far it extends from your bumper. Since trailer hitches are different on each vehicle, the exact distance is going to vary. I have included an install and overview video for additional information.

    Biggest difference you'd notice between the Saris Freedom 4 part # SA4414B and the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE4 part # HR1400Z is weight. The Hollywood Racks weighs in at 88 lbs whereas the Saris weighs 53 lbs. For most people that's enough difference to give the edge to the Saris.

    We do carry several bike carriers that can tilt while the bikes are loaded allowing you access to the rear of your Explorer. You can choose from either hanging bike carriers or platform-style carriers. Some of the carriers can be quite heavy, so you want to consider the weight of all of the bikes combined with the weight of the carrier and make sure you do not exceed the tongue weight capacity of your vehicle. If you choose a hanging bike carrier, and plan on carrying any bikes with...

  • Best 4-Bike Rack for 2017 Ford F-150
    The Saris Freedom # SA4414B and Yakima FourTimer # Y02469 are both fantastic options; you have a great eye for bike racks. Even though we have not test fit these on a 2017 Ford F-150, the majority of trucks we did test fit the Saris Freedom # SA4414B on allowed the rear tailgate to open with the bikes on and tilted down. Compared to the FourTimer # Y02469 the Freedom has the better chance of the two to let the tailgate come down with the rack tilted and the bikes on. The reason for this...

  • Overall Length of the Saris Freedom 4-Bike Rack # SA4414B
    I went out and measured the length of the Saris Freedom 4-Bike Rack # SA4414B from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest point out on the rack and found it to be 40-1/2 inches. When compared to one of the other more popular platform 4 bike racks like the Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Carrier # S64665 it is a bit shorter in length. I measured this one and found it to be 46 inches long. What's also nice about the # SA4414B is that it weighs about 20 lbs lighter than the # S64665.

  • Recommendations For Carrying 4 Bikes On 2012 Hyundai Veloster
    With a Class l hitch on your 2012 Hyundai Veloster, you are limited with the tongue weight capacity and any bike carrier you install in the hitch limits you to 2 bikes. You will want to check your owner's manual or with your dealership to make certain you do not exceed the vehicle's tongue weight capacity. The Saris Freedom 4 Bike Platform Rack, part # SA4414B, is rated to be used with higher rated hitches and would not be a fit for your Veloster. You will want to make sure any accessory...

  • Platform Bike Rack for 2013 Honda Odyssey that Can Fit and Fold Up When Not in Use
    The RockyMounts Westlope 3 bike rack part # RKY10223 that you referenced would fit well when folded down but when folded up would be 1 inch short of clearing so you'd have to go a different route like with the Saris Freedom part # SA4414B which is actually a 4 bike rack but would easily fit and clear folded. There isn't a similar 3 bike rack that would have the clearance which is why this would be best option overall. I attached a review video for this rack for more info too.

  • Best Bike Rack That Can Carry 2 Or 4 Bikes
    There is a 2 Bike version of the Saris Freedom 4 # SA4412B and I've included a video of me using it! You can either get the 2 bike version or the 4 bike version, one cannot convert into the other. If you're looking to have a 2 bike rack that can turn into a 4 bike rack I would recommend getting the Kuat NV 2.0 Base # BA12B and get the 2 bike add on # BA02B if you wanted to carry 4 bikes! The add-on can be taken off just as easy as it was put on so your not stuck with only a 2 or 4 bike...

  • 4 Bike Rack Recommendation for Rear of Travel Trailer
    We have bike racks that are designed for the rougher ride quality at the rear of a travel trailer, but the Saris part # SA4414B is not designed for that so instead you would want the Swagman Trailhead # S63381 which is a 4 bike rack designed for use at the back of an RV and would work great. Since platform bike racks like the Saris are so large and heavy they aren't made in the 4 bike configuration for RV use. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without...

  • Recommended Hitch-Mount 4-Bike Platform Bike Carrier for 2 Adult and 1 Kids Bikes
    The Saris Freedom 4 Bike Platform Rack for 2-inch hitches, part # SA4414B, and the Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Rack # S64665, both offer a mix of excellent features that make each one versatile for transporting a variety of bike frame sizes and styles. Two key differences between them are the amount of clearance each offers from the hitch pin hole and the sizes of bike wheelbases that are compatible. The Saris Freedom 4, when folded up in its storage position, provides 6-inches of space between...

  • 4 Bike Tilting Platform Rack Recommendation for 2015 Toyota Highlander
    When it comes to a 4 bike platform rack for your 2015 Toyota Highlander, I recommend taking a look at the Saris Freedom, # SA4414B. This is one of my favorites because it is loaded with features including tilt which will allow you access to the rear cargo area even with your bikes loaded, the best feature by far. It always seems that the minute that you get the bikes loaded, someone forgot to get something out of the back of the vehicle. With this rack it isn't a problem. Just pull out...

  • What are the Yellow Knobs and Gray Handles Made Of on the Saris Freedom Bike Rack
    The yellow knobs and gray handles on the Saris Freedom bike rack # SA4414B are automotive grade plastic which is impact resistant. I have yet to have anyone complain about one of them breaking.

  • Can the Saris Freedom 4 Bike Platform Rack be Used on a 5th Wheel Trailer
    The Saris Freedom 4 Bike Platform Rack # SA4414B you referenced has not been tested and approved for use on a 5th wheel trailer but we do have other 4-bike bike racks that are. Since there is a lot more play at the back of a 5th wheel trailer as opposed to a passenger vehicle only certain bikes have been tested and approved for this extra movement. For your application I recommend going with the Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4 # B01458 because it is a wheel mount bike rack which means there...

  • Hitch Receiver Mount 4-Bike Carrier for 1-1/4 Inch Hitch on a 2013 Chevy Traverse
    There are 2-bike platform bike carriers that will fit a 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch but the 4-bike carriers only fit 2 inch trailer hitches. A 4-bike platform carrier is going to extend far from the vehicle and will be heavier than a hanging bike rack. That would but too much stress on a 1-1/4 inch hitch. What you could do is replace the 1-1/4 inch hitch with a 2 inch hitch such as # 75528 for your 2013 Chevy Traverse. But if the 1-1/4 inch hitch is welded on, you will not be able to replace...

  • Recommendation for Bike Rack and Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin for 2011 Honda Pilot
    Saris offers the Hitch Tite Threaded Anti-Rattle Lock, # SA3022, for use with the Saris Freedom 4 Bike Platform Rack, # SA4414B, that you mentioned. In addition, they offer the 8 Foot Long Cable Lock, # SA981, to secure your bikes and help prevent theft. Saris does not offer an anti-rattle lock and cable combo. The first thing that I recommend doing is to determine the amount of clearance that your 2011 Honda Pilot requires for a hitch mounted bike rack. I am including a help article...
