Dual Folding Arms with Anti-Sway Cradles

Saris Axis 2 Arms

The rack has dual arched arms that have a more stylish look when compared to racks with arms that slope straight up. They provide excellent support for your bikes and leave ample ground clearance for steep driveways and bumpy roads.


Saris Bones Hitch 2 Folded Up On Vehicle

The arms can fold down, leaving a smaller footprint so you can keep the rack on your vehicle to park in your garage. And when stored in this configuration, it doesn't take up as much space in your garage.


Saris Bones Hitch Arm Adjustment Knobs

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 Bones Hitch AntiSway Cradles

Anti-sway cradles with ratchet straps hold your bikes firmly in place. Each set of cradles has two straps that secure your bike along the top tube and one that secures the seat post or downtube. This multi-point contact helps keep your bikes from rocking back and forth, reducing bike-to-bike contact.


Easy Tilting for Cargo Area Access

Saris Bones Hitch 2 Tilted Away From Vehicle

The rack tilts down without your bikes loaded. This means you won't have to remove the whole rack to access your cargo area for grocery runs and other errands.


Saris Bones Hitch 2 Tilted Away From Vehicle

To tilt the rack, pull the yellow handle on the base of the rack and lower the mast. When you're ready to go, just raise the mast back up. You will hear an audible click to confirm that the mast is locked in place.


1-Person Installation

Saris Bones Hitch 2 Adapter Sleeve and Hitch Pin

The Bones Hitch is made of lightweight steel that weighs less than 20 lbs, making it one of the lightest racks on the market. To install it, slide the shank into your hitch, insert the hitch pin and tighten it down using a 3/4" wrench (sold separately). The hitch pin is threaded to help eliminate rattle in the hitch receiver during transport. A clip is also included to keep the pin in place.


Saris Bones Hitch 2 Adapter Sleeve and Hitch Pin

You can install the rack in a 1-1/4" hitch or in a 2" hitch. To use it in a 1-1/4" hitch, simply remove the adapter with the included Allen key.


Available Security and Adapter Bar

Saris Bones Hitch bike locks

A cable lock and an anti-rattle hitch lock (sold separately) are available to secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle.


Saris Bones Hitch 2 Adapter Sleeve and Hitch Pin

If you have a women's bike, kid's bike, or any other bike without a straight, horizontal top tube, you will need an adapter bar (sold separately) to properly mount your bike. The bar fits between the seat post and handlebar stem post of your bike to create a top tube so your bike hangs level on the rack.

This is the first bike rack I have ever owned. The rack will be used primarily for me to transport my bike to training rides and triathlons. Occasionally, we will transport 1-3 additional bikes if my husband or sons want to go on a ride. In the past, I had to remove my front wheel in order to fit my bike inside my 2013 Toyota Highlander, and we weren't getting more than one bike in there. I went with the Saris based on the recommendation of a triathlon coach/mountain biker.

My husband and I mounted the rack onto the car without difficulty. It is easy enough to get on or off by myself, which is useful since we will not be leaving on the car permanently. Thankfully, with it mounted, and the arms folded down, my 2013 Highlander fits into the garage with no problem. One useful feature that I discovered is the ability to position the arms closer together for my shorter bike. I attached photos of the arms attached all the way wide, or a little narrower.

I noticed just a minor amount of movement of the rack while I drove, but it was mostly while I went through a construction zone that has a lot of bumps. Even then, it didn't seem unstable. Additionally, I used a small bungee cord to strap the front tire to the cross bar of the bike, to reduce the movement of that tire.

I would recommend the Saris Bones Hitch without reservation.



by:

Wonderful website. Delivered as promise d.



by:

Holds 3 light bikes comfortably. Adjusting semi rigid straps a bit difficult for me, depending on angle. Hitch rattles some tho I imagine it needs this amount of "give." Recommded by a friend I trust.

Saris bones hitch bike rack: Service representative who took my order was very good and made sure that I got the product within 3 business days. nice sturdy product, but the directions to put it together were a bit confusing. Got it wrong first try. I would recommend it to a friend.

The rack isn't up to previous saris standards IMO.

Great service representitve correspondence. Loved product and excellent delivery time! Would definetly recommentd etrailer!

Assembly screws where difficult to use.

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.



by:

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!



by:

Overall a good rack. But loading atypical geometry mountain bikes caused the tines to drift inward, off the tracks, allowing them to fold. This happened during driving almost costing us a fortune; [caught that in time]. I suggest better set screws or depressions in the metal that the screws channel into so the tines cannot slide inappropriately. I will be fabricating a bar to hold them outward. Yes, you can purchase frame bars to hang such bikes and that is an option, but I think I will go with a stabilizer that I can create in my workshop.



by:

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.



by:

The customer service was absolutely fantastic. She helped me choose the perfect bike rack. I have used it many times on short trips and three very long trips. It’s fabulous. I highly recommend this company



by:

Clears the spoiler and keeps the bikes away from the car. I am totally thrilled that I bought this bike carrier.



by:

It has been pretty stable when using the Saris Bones 2. A little bit of a learning curve to use, but once you understand, it is very easy to use. It is very well made and I am very happy with the quality of service from etrailer.com



by:

It took a little while to get the arms where they needed to be and straps for the first time to make sure it was secure. But now that we have it set we just put it on tighten the straps and off we go! It's amazing and sturdy a little pricey but it's worth the money, I don't feel like our 2 bikes will fall off. I love It! Just make sure u get a bar adjuster for women's bikes or kids. Etrailer is the way to go, free shipping and it was here in 3 days!



by:

Bike rack fits just right on my 2020 Honda Civic Hatchback. Took a little longer for shipment with COVID but the staff at etrailer stayed in touch with updates on shipment and let me know of its status. I would recommend the rack and etrailer.



by:

Just a follow-up message to an earlier review. Beautiful, warm December day; finally had a chance to take the bikes to a county park. The rack worked great!



by:

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!



by:

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.



by:

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.



by:

I really appreciate the friendly service from your customer service. The representative made sure I ordered the right bike rack for my specific car.

  • Which Hitch Lock Fits Shank of Saris Bones Hitch Bike Rack
    The Saris hitch lock part # SA3022 and the # SHP2082 are totally different hitch locks/anti-rattle devices. The part # SHP2082 is designed to fit hollow shank accessories and the # SA3022 is designed to fit shanks that are threaded. A Saris hitch bike rack it would require the # SA3022.

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for 4 Bikes on a 2007 Honda CR-V
    First it is very important that you know the tongue weight capacity of your 2007 Honda CR-V. It is limited to 150 pounds. That means the combined weight of the bike rack and the bikes cannot exceed 150 pounds. Adult bikes average about 30 pounds per bike so it can add up quick on a 4-bike rack. With that said I recommend going with trailer hitch # 75547 because it is the only one out of the hitch options that will allow you to carry more than 2 bikes. I have linked a video showing an example...

  • Hitch Bike Rack Recommendation for a Mom with a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
    I personally recommend going with the Saris Bones, part # SA884. This rack is a bit lighter at 22 pounds and much easier for me to handle and maneuver when putting the rack in the hitch. For added security you can add the Hitch Tite Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock, part # SA3022, and the Cable Lock, # SA981. When carrying women's, children's or alternative framed bikes, I recommend using an adapter bar like the Swagman Easy-Out, # 64005. This bar attaches between the seat post and the handlebar...

  • Can this Saris Bones Hitch 4 Bike Rack be Installed on a 2014 Audi Q5 3.0T Gas
    The Saris Bones Hitch 4 Bike Rack # SA884 (formerly Axis 4 bike rack) would fit and work well on your 2011 Audi Q5 as long as you have a hitch installed on it like the Curt Class III part # C13136 which is a custom fit hitch for your vehicle. To install this hitch there is this tech tip: Models with back-up camera may require fascia trimming for the hitch receiver tube. Any time you put anything at the rear of the vehicle you are going to end up blocking a portion of the viewing angle...

  • Weight of the Thule Hitching Post Pro
    Thule's Hitching Post Pro hitch bike rack # TH934XTR has a shipping weight of 41 lbs, so by the time you remove the packaging materials from the equation the rack's actual weight is right around 38 lbs. This is a fairly average weight for a 4 bike rack. Just in case your looking, our lightest 4-bike carrier is the Saris Bones, part # SA884, at 22 lbs. This is an entry-level bike rack with basic features. This bike rack will fit Class II and higher trailer hitches and you can add a hitch...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid
    When looking at capacities you will always go by the lowest rated component in the system. Since the tongue weight capacity of the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is 150 pounds that is the capacity you must go by even if a hitch can handle more. Since you want to carry 4 bikes on a hitch I recommend Class III trailer hitch # e98864 because it fits Hybrid models, it doesn't have any special requirements for bike rack use like the Curt hitch, and the 2-inch receiver is compatible with many accessories.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver For a 2013 Toyota RAV4 To Carry Up to 4 Bikes Or a Cargo Carrier
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13406 is a great option for your 2013 Toyota RAV4 LE. This receiver is made in the USA and has a lifetime warranty. The hidden cross tube helps give it a clean factory look as well. The receiver is rated for up to 350lbs which is plenty to carry your bikes or additional cargo.

  • Recommended 4-Bike Rack on 2017 Buick Enclave That is Easy to Use
    Assuming you have a 2" hitch receiver such as the Draw-Tite # 75528 on your 2017 Buick Enclave, the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR is not difficult to install, requiring you only slide the rack's shank in your hitch receiver. However, it does weigh 40 lbs, and though you may be more than able to handle a rack that heavy without any difficulty, there are lighter options available that are going to be easier for anyone to carry.

  • Saris Bones vs Thule Apex XT Bike Racks for a 2021 Tesla Model Y
    The only time I would recommend the Saris Bones Hitch 4 Bike Rack # SA884 over the Thule Apex XT 4 Bike Rack # TH9025XT is if the weight of the bike rack was the only factor since the Bones weighs 22 lbs while the Apex XT weighs 35 lbs. The Apex XT has integrated bike and rack locks as well as an anti-rattle knob which means it's a tool-free installation and you don't have to remember to grab the locks before you leave.

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2015 Toyota Sienna
    With any trailer hitch mounted bike rack you will have to go back and do something with it prior to opening the rear hatch on your 2015 Toyota Sienna. Some racks tilt, some can swing off to the side, some will just have to be removed. But they all have one thing in common and that is that they will have to be manually manipulated in some way so you can open the rear hatch.
