The Yakima Stage Two platform rack has stadium-style, tiered trays that hold your bikes at different levels to help avoid bike-to-bike contact. The increased angle also adds ground clearance for backing down steep driveways.

Rotating Arms with Ratcheting Hooks

The rack has rotating arms with ratcheting hooks that grab your bikes firmly by the front wheel - not the frame. It's perfect for carrying e-bikes, carbon bikes, or bikes with a custom paint job. To load a bike, simply place your front wheel in the cradle, rotate the arm up and over the wheel, and press down firmly on the ratcheting hook.

Sliding Rear Wheel Cradles

Cradles with ratchet straps slide along the wheel trays to accommodate bikes with a variety of wheelbases. Press the quick-release button on the strap buckle to remove your bikes.

Front-Mounted Lever for Easy Tilting and Folding

The front-mounted lever is easily accessible even with your bikes loaded. No more crawling through your bikes or squeezing between the rack and the vehicle to access the tilt release lever.

The release lever lets you tilt the rack down with bikes loaded for cargo area access. It leaves 1 hand free so that you can lower the rack in a controlled manner. When the rack is unloaded you can fold it up for storage.

Tool-Free Installation with Anti-Rattle Device

The knob at the front of the shank lets you quickly and easily install the rack. Just slide the shank into your hitch, insert the hitch pin, and turn the knob until snug.

The knob deploys an anti-rattle wedge in the shank to help take play out of the hitch connection.

Complete Security

The rack includes locks to secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle. Integrated cable locks thread around your bikes' frames and inserts into the lock at the top of each arm. The cables store inside the arms when not in use.

The lock on the hand knob secures the rack to your vehicle. The hand knob will spin freely when locked so a would-be thief can't operate it. The locks are keyed alike, so you only need to use 1 key.

Video Transcript for Yakima StageTwo 4 Bike Rack Review - 2019 GMC Acadia

Hi everyone. It's Evangeline here at Etrailer. And today we'll be taking a look at the Yakima Stagetwo four bike platform rack right here on our 2019 GMC Acadia. So if you want a really strong and sturdy bike rack that can carry your extra heavy bikes. And let's say you have the Yakima Stagetwo two bike platform rack, and you wanna expand it up to four. That's where this comes in handy.

This is going to give you a lot of weight capacity for your heavy electric bikes, as well as the stability or sturdiness that you know from the Yakima Stagetwo brand. So we'll talk about those features. We'll talk about those specs. But we're gonna focus today on our Acadia and just see how everything works with that. That way you can see what is gonna be the best fit for you, your different types of bikes and your vehicle.

Now the very first feature we'll take a look at today is going to be the Tilt-Away feature. And it's gonna be kind of tricky because it's a four bike platform rack and most four bike platform racks are pretty heavy. So you're gonna have this lever here and you're gonna wanna use two hands to just pull that lever and bring the bike rack to a tilt. Right there. So you can see here with the angle and especially the ground clearance on our Acadia, we don't touch the ground at all.

So don't worry about that. The reason you'll tilt your bike rack away is if you wanna access your hatch. So you can see here, we have plenty of clearance between our door, our pedals, our handlebars. Meaning we can reach in here, grab whatever we need. Whether it's our helmets, our bags, our waters.

Now, my personal opinion is just go ahead and try to get it from the inside of your vehicle if you can. Because this is a lot of weight you have to maneuver. But it's good to see that you can tilt it away. If you really need to. What types of bikes can you carry with a Yakima Stagetwo Well, for the first two trays, you can carry a bike that's up to 60 pounds in terms of weight capacity. So your heaviest bikes will go over here. And when you bring them out you are then limited to a 40 pound weight capacity. So that's gonna be a total of 120 for the first two trays and then you're gonna have 80 pounds for the last two trays. You can also see how the trays are off center. That way, if you have your handlebars and your pedals you won't have to be worried about them hitting each other. Like you would for some other bike racks with trays. Now, when you wanna take your bike off you actually start at the rear wheel. So we have this strap here. You're just gonna press that lever on the strap that disengages this strap itself. So just lift that up and out of the way. You can actually swing this, if you don't want it all caught up in your spokes as you reach over towards the front, by your wheel mount. So if you do have your heavy electric bikes over here you may wanna consider getting the additional ramp that fits right into your trays on the back cradle. Now, once you have that fit in there you can then just ramp your back bike backwards. But here we're gonna hold onto our bike with one hand as we press this button, lift up on that front wheel mount, push that out of the way. And you can also see how we have pretty good clearance. So I can just grab my bike, lift it off, and I'm ready for a ride. Here in the back, we have an interesting design here. Like the Kuat NV has a strap that slides back and forth like this. But the Stagetwo has this cradle that also slides back and forth. And I kind of like that. You get to pick your wheel base because this goes all the way out. If you have a wheel base of up to 52 inches this can carry that. We also have our front wheel cradle. So notice the way the grooves are made. If you have thin road bike tires, they fit right in here. And if you have your wider tires, they fit right there. Now the maximum tire width you can carry with this is gonna be up to 3.25 inch wide tires. You also have your front wheel mount, which I talked about earlier, when it comes to securing your bike. This is helpful if you have let's say, carbon fiber frame. If you have a step through bike, women's bike, children's bike. Another feature is that you still have the cable locks on the end just to secure those. And then you lock it into place. But for your cable locks, you also have the anchor points on your first two trays and your back two trays. If you need extra security, you can run your cable lock through that. And that really secures everything. With the ability to carry around four bikes, you all also have a lot of space you have to think about. So taking some measurements from our bumper of our Acadia to the end of the rack, by our lever that sits at 62 inches which is five feet and two inches. It's as tall as I am! So that's gonna be a lot of length you're gonna have to think about whenever you're backing into your garage or trying to park into a really tight spot. Don't forget that you now have four bikes behind you. Now the GMC Acadia has really good ground clearance. So most of the bike racks on this mean that your bikes are a bit more elevated. You also have a shank rise on this rack as well. So, to compare, the end of the rack sits at 33.5 inches, and then the shank sits at 15 inches. For your highest point, or where your bike is gonna sit at the very end, that's gonna be 35 inches off the ground. So for that reason, I also recommend getting the ramp to make it easier to just mount them up and down, since it is so high up. With this adding more than five feet to the back of your vehicle, what might happen is, well if you're not planning on going out for a bike ride just yet, but you also don't wanna take your bike rack off, 'cause it's really heavy. Or you just want this inside your garage over the night. And then when you drive out you can lower it and load your bikes on. So, what we're gonna do is we're gonna fold this bike rack up into the compact and portable position. Remember the lever we had to pull earlier We'll pull this again but this time you're gonna lift up on the rack. So this is gonna be tricky, 'cause it is heavy. But once you get it up there, it snaps into place. And if I can do it, you could probably do it too. So this is gonna be a very tall bike rack behind your vehicle now. So let's take some measurements. The first is gonna be does this make any contact with our vehicle As you can see, there's gonna be plenty of clearance there. The closest point is probably gonna be where our GMC logo is to that mount. And that's gonna be 5.25 inches. So a lot of space. Now for the length it now adds the back of our Acadia. It's gonna be from the bumper to this stand and that's gonna be 12 inches or one foot. Big difference compared to when this was folded down. You'll want it in this position when you need to drive around town, or you need to park into a tight spot. So let's talk about how you install this bike rack. So this has a two inch shank which fits into the two inch receiver on your Acadia. We have a safety pin on the left so that's not gonna be an anti-rattle bolt. It's just a safety feature. What does most of the work is going to be the speed knob. So you pop that into place and you tighten it down with this knob here. That creates an anti-rattle effect. This is also where you lock the bike. So the keys you get for the cable locks on the sides of the trays match the locks right over here. So once everything is in place, everything's tightened down. Let's give it a bit of a shake test. We can see as I shake our bike rack back and forth we are moving the vehicle too. So there might be a little bit of play, maybe on the trays themselves, but I think it's a really sturdy fit given how heavy this rack is. So my personal thoughts about this bike rack is that this definitely gives you a stable and sturdy platform for your extra heavy bikes. So if you're carrying around two heavy electric bikes but you also wanna be able to carry around, let's say, your larger mountain bikes or your bikes that aren't as heavy as electric bikes but are still important. This is a really good option for you. You have your cable locks, nothing really is moving. It's all gonna be sturdy on the road. The downside of this being such a large bike rack is that it takes up a lot of space. So keep that in mind, take those measurements inside of your garage. And consider if you do wanna tilt it away, or not, with all the bikes loaded. And that was a look right here at our Yakima Stagetwo four bike platform rack on our 2019 GMC Acadia..
