Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle. However, to mount certain bikes or to keep your bike level on the rack, a bike adapter bar may be required. Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.


Saris Axis 3 On Vehicle

The Bones Hitch lets you carry 3 bikes on the back of your vehicle. This sturdy steel bike rack has anti-sway cradles, a tilting design, and can fit both 1-1/4" (Class II only) and 2" hitches.


Dual Adjustable Arms

Saris Axis 3 Arms

The Bones Hitch has arched dual arms that ensure optimal ground clearance and provide better bike support than single-arm racks. They are designed to accommodate women's, children's, and alternative bike frames better. The arched design also allows your bikes to hang at different heights to prevent handlebars and pedals from tangling. These injection-molded plastic arms are extremely strong and are constructed of 100-percent recycled materials.


Saris Axis Arm Adjustment Knob

The adjustable arms are mounted on a smooth horizontal tube with grooves at each end. To raise or lower an arm, loosen the plastic twist knob and slide the arm off the grooved section and onto the smooth, inner part of the tube. Rotate the arm to the desired position, slide it back onto the grooves, and tighten the knob back down to lock the arm in place.


Saris Axis 3 Folded Up On Vehicle

The arms also fold down when the rack is not in use.


Soft Cradles and Anti-Sway Straps Keep Bikes Stable

 Saris Axis AntiSway Cradles

There are 2 soft plastic cradles with dual-molded plastic ratcheting straps that secure your bikes to the rack by the top tube. The lower anti-sway strap pivots to grab your bike's seat tube or down tube to minimize lateral motion, preventing your bikes from hitting each other and your vehicle during transport.


Tilting Mast for Easy Access to Cargo Area

Saris Axis 3 Tilted Away From Vehicle

The Bones Hitch's mast can be tilted forward when your bikes are unloaded for easy access to your vehicle's rear cargo area. Just pull the yellow handle at the base of the rack to tilt it away from your vehicle, providing clearance to open and close the hatch door. When you return the rack to the upright position, you will hear an audible click to confirm that the mast is locked in place.


Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin and Adapter Sleeve

Saris Axis 3 Adapter Sleeve and Hitch Pin

The threaded hitch pin helps prevent the rack from moving and rattling around in your vehicle's hitch receiver. And the included aluminum adapter sleeve ensures that the Bones Hitch 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.

Super customer service from Etrailer. They kept me up-to-date about my order. My bike rack arrived ahead of schedule. Etrailer is the only retailer that guaranteed delivery of product. Everyone else listed it as out-of-stock.




by:

The rack itself seems to be great. It is up higher than I expected but since you can release it down to open the hatch, it is also a great position to load/unload from. Carrier was not packaged securely and there are a couple nicks on the main stem of the carrier. It will be nice not to have to load my bike in the back of the Outback and also to bring another person along with me on my rides.


Comments
I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

Nothing but good things to say. Minimal setup time.
The product is extremely well made, easy to use and rugged. It was strong and light and very easy to install.
Also after shopping around, it turned out to be very
reasonally priced. Last but not least, it is made in the USA so I can be proud to own it. I would not install anything else on my Chevy truck. Thank you Saris for such a high quality product, I will certainly recommend it to my other bike riding buddies.


Comments
I can repeat everything I said before this is a high quality product and a great value in every way.

Purchased this Saris Bones Hitch 3 Bike Rack approximately one year ago. It continues to work perfectly for my needs (transporting one or two high-end road bikes). Bikes have been transported for thousands of miles without issue. The vertical piece on the rack can occasionally become slightly loose at the bottom, but cab easily be tightened with an appropriately sized socket and hex wrench.




by:

Excellent overall build quality and usability. Durable enough to get thrown around a bit, but very solid support for our bikes. Great mechanism for allowing the hatch lift gate to clear.




by:

Lightweight and easy to install. Folds away from vehicle for access to rear of the vehicle.

Review from a similar Bones in Hitch Bike Racks


It is well designed, relatively intuitive (the installation videos on their webs site are a great help), and very stable when mounted on our car (We have a Volvo station wagon). I wish it had better strap management. When mounted on our car, there are four long lengths of unused strap that need to be coiled and stored so that don't flap around. I don't want to cut off the spare strap lengths because that would preclude using it mounted on a conventional trunk.


Comments
Yes. It is simpler and easier to use than the roof rack I had been using. However, my grandson’s mountain bike has a curved down tube, leaving a very narrow space between the top tube and the down tube at the steering tube, making it difficult to get onto my Saris carrier.

Review from a similar Bones in Hitch Bike Racks


This product works very well and is solid. The first couple of times I used it, especially the first, it was complicated to figure out. But now I really enjoy how it folds up pretty small to fit in my trunk. I recommend it.

Still good!

Review from a similar Bones in Hitch Bike Racks


While getting a bike rack for a sports car isn't ideal, I really wanted to transfer my bike with my own car instead of borrowing my friend's pickup truck. After hours of trying to find a bike rack that would be good for my 07 Mustang, I decided to give this one a try and I gotta say, it has been pretty good so far. It fits very well over the factory spoiler. One of my biggest concerns I was worried about when ordering a rack for my Mustang was ruining the paint, but the feet on the legs haven't left one scratch. I have used this to transfer my bike at freeway speeds (up to 80 mph) on car rides that typically last an hour and my bike was perfectly secure throughout each ride. For extra security, I wrapped both bike wheels with a ratchet strap so the wheels and pedals wouldn't shift in transit. So far, I am very pleased with this bike rack for the price and quality. I would highly recommend this if you want a rack that is affordable and durable.


Comments
Still holds on to my bike and stays on my car just as well as it did the day I bought it. Would still recommend today.

The bike rack is sturdy~ to reduce “sway”, be sure to secure all of the clamps as securely as possible~


Comments
It’s been WONDERFUL AND NO ISSUES AT ALL!! I was nervous at first putting in 2 bikes and driving down the highway, but this rack is SOLID and I still love it- even after owning it for a year!!

Not a secure bike rack for an Audi A5. The first was too loose to use.


Comments
This should fit the Convertible and Coupe 2018 Audi A5. The straps are made to tighten up against your trunk and the rubberize metal clips, clip into the trunk jam.

Review from a similar Bones in Hitch Bike Racks


Disappointed in this bikerack. I got it specifically for my Prius, as the curved frame fits over the spoiler. Unfortunately there is no where on the trunk or frame of the card where the side straps can attach. The top strap and bottom ones fit tightly but without the tension of these side straps the bike rack will not stay evenly on the car. Almost lost my bike on several occasions After lots of gerryrigging, I discovered if I quickly slammed the trunk with the side straps hanging loosely in the trunk, I should catch the straps and tighten them. This seems to work. Also no matter how hard I tighten it, the center arm (which lies against the rear window) does not stay in place, but slides off center. The rack works fine, with lots of gerryrigging. But should be easier to use given the price. Also be aware, that if your Prius has a rear view camera, this will have to be disengaged eveeytime you back up with the bike rack and bike in place, or your car will automatically brake if you try to backup.


Comments
I reached out to Saris who advised that the Saris Bones EX part # SAR83FR
Saris Bones EX 2 Bike Rack - Adjustable Arms - Trunk Mount
$183.99
would be a better fit on your 2018 Toyota Prius with the factory spoiler. It has a greater curved design that allows more room to accommodate the spoiler.

I have been using the Saris Bones 2 Bike Rack Trunk Mount for a year now. It is so easy to use. It takes just minutes to put in on my car and load the bikes on. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Review from a similar Bones in Hitch Bike Racks


I wanted to take my bike to some trails and so this solved the problem! Pretty easy to attach to my car. So far, I’ve transported one bike with it on my 2017 Prius. The side straps don’t really have a place to hook on but I called for assistance and was told the side straps aren’t as essential as the top and bottom ones. I found a spot to attach the side straps just in case; but relied more on the top and bottom ones.

When we got to our destination, it did require a little work to remove the top hooks from my car. Haven’t taken it on a highway yet but it looks like it should be good!

Review from a similar Bones in Hitch Bike Racks


These are descent bike holders, but I was disappointed in the fact that at speed, the bike closer to the vehicle will be pushed back (by the air) and rub against the other bike. My brand new bike now has a big bare spot in the paint, which made me pretty unhappy.

Review from a similar Bones in Hitch Bike Racks


Fits well on my 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid. Nice, well protected strap clamps for my mountain bike. I really like the two additional stabilizing clamps for the bike to prevent swaying. Light and strong rack. No rust possibility either. Bike holder extensions swing out of the way easily allowing garage door closure without removing rack.

Review from a similar Bones in Hitch Bike Racks


I like the light weight and manageable size of this rack. It was a little confusing right out of the box but I had it figured out in a few minutes.
I have a 2018 Honda CRV and was concerned that the bumper is not as deep as most other vehicles - the rack legs stuck out over the edge. Also the "hooks" on the side straps kept sliding up and coming off. I used a 1/2" cork squeezed into the hatch "seam" on each side above the hooks to keep them from sliding. (therefore no 5th star)
I drove 60 miles day one and everything worked out fine!


Comments
The Saris bones 2 bike rack is working great on my 2018 Honda CRV. It fits snugly to the car with no bumps or rattles. Easy to attach and is light weight.

I have used the Saris Bone 2 Bike Rack - Trunk Mount - Adjustable Arms a few times. It was a little confusing initially to figure out where the arms and straps attach but, like anything else, the more I used it, the easier it got. The bike fits securely and I don't have to through the expense of getting a bike rack.

This rack is wonderful! It's lightweight, tough and super easy to use. It was ready to go out of the box and I had it installed within minutes. Several trips later and it hasn't let us down in the slightest. It securely holds my huge bike and my wife's without any issue. Cannot recommend it enough!

  • Install Instructions for Saris Bones 3 Bike Rack SA883
    I attached a link to this page that has the install instructions for the Saris Bones 3 rack part # SA883 that you have. There isn't a torque spec listed though for the bolt you mentioned. You'll just want to get it hand tight while using the correct wrench. Please don't use a crescent wrench like the pictures show though! Those notoriously strip bolts.

  • Should I Use an Adapter Bar for Child’s Bike on the Saris Bones part # SA883
    When using the Saris Bones Hitch 3 Bike Rack to transport kids bikes I do recommend using an adapter bar. While it is possible to get some smaller frames on the Bones the bike is usually sitting at a very steep angle and is just something you really don't want to deal with. I really like the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar part # 64005 it is very quick and easy to use when compared to the others.

  • Carrying a Womens and 2 Childrens Bikes on a 2013 Lexus RX 450h
    Most 16 inch children's bikes and women's bikes need an adapter bar, like the Swagman # 64005, to be able to carry them level on a hanging bike rack. For that long of a trip I definitely recommend the bikes be as level as possible. The solution is often to use a wheel mount platform rack instead; however, they only fit as small as 20 inch wheels. With that being said sometimes the small bikes do fit hanging bike racks. It depends on how much space there is for the arms to fit under...

  • Will the Saris Bones Hitch 3 Bike Rack Work On a 2019 Ford Explorer
    The Saris Bones Hitch 3 Bike Rack part # SA883 will work just fine on a 2019 Ford Explorer. If you don't already have a trailer hitch, the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98867 is what I recommend which is a bolt-on fit. The Saris Bones is an excellent option and you will able to tilt the rack away from the vehicle to get into the hatch and fold the arms down while not in use.

  • Best Bike Rack for a BMW 3 Series?
    The Saris Bones Hitch 3 Bike Rack, Part # SA883, is an good choice for the BMW 3-Series. It is capable of holding less than 3 bikes.

    Thank you for all of the info and the picture! Normally when the hatch on a vehicle doesn't allow the hooks to properly secure you would just use an anchor type system like the Hollywood Racks part # HR44FR.
