Expert Answers about Saris

  • 4-Bike Rack to use on the Back of Travel Trailer RV
  • At the rear of a trailer or RV the ride quality is very rough when compared to the ride quality at the rear of a passenger vehicle. Reason being the suspension isn't as sophisticated and there is a longer distance between the rear axle and the rear of the trailer which exaggerates the movement of the trailer when hitting bumps. Because of that only a few bike racks were designed to be reinforced enough for that type of use. We do have a somewhat similar 4 bike rack we have the Lets Go...

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for 2017 Chevy Volt
  • Most of the time platform bike racks can be a bit heavy but we do have one great solution. The Saris Freedom Superclamp EX part # SA4025F only weighs 30 lbs, can carry up to 60 lbs per bike, can fit the 1-1/4 inch hitch you would have on your 2017 Chevy Volt, and is also made in America. The best hitch to use would be the Draw Tite part # 24947.

  • What is the Lightest 4-Bike Platform Style Bike Rack for a 2014 Tesla Model S with EcoHitch
  • For your 2014 Tesla Model S with EcoHitch # 306-X7201 the lightest 4-Bike rack (that is sort of a hybrid between a platform rack and a hanging rack) is the BikeWing # B01458. It weighs just 41 pounds. It holds the bikes at the wheels only and will accept bikes with wheelbases from 22 inches to 50 inches. I have linked a video review of this rack for you. For a more traditional rack the Saris Freedom SuperClamp # SA4026F you mentioned would be the lightest at 63 pounds. I have linked...

  • Comparing the Saris Freedom and Yakima FourTimer 4 Bike Platform Racks
  • Both the Saris Freedom 4, part # SA4414B and the Yakima FourTimer, part # Y02469 are great racks and they do have a few differences. In looking at the racks, the distance can vary by quite a bit based on what vehicle the racks are installed from. When we're measuring distances in our videos, we're measuring from the rear point of the vehicle to the furthest point of the rack. The distance that you'll want to compare them at is the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the...

  • Carrying Two Bikes on a 2018 Honda CR-V
  • You have three options to carry bikes on your 2018 Honda CR-V; roof mount, hatch mount, or add a trailer hitch and use a hitch mount. All of which have their advantages and disadvantages. A roof mounted carrier is nice because the it's completely out of the way when you're not using it. You technically never have to remove the carrier from the roof so there's no need to store it. On the other hand if you don't already have a roof rack to connect the carrier to it can get costly adding...

  • Saris Freedom Superclamp 4 SA4026 vs SA4026F EX Comparison
  • Biggest difference is the part # SA4026F has redesigned wheel trays and a few different aesthetic changes like noticeably less yellow. The new trays fit tires up to 4-1/2 inches wide whereas the older # SA4026 only fits tire widths up to 3 inch.

  • Which Trailer Hitch Fits 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL
  • For your 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL the Curt trailer hitch part # C13153 is a confirmed fit and will work well for you. It is a 2 inch hitch with plenty of capacity at 6,000 lb total trailer weight. The non-XL versions of the Santa Fe in 2019 require the part # C13195 instead.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2018 BMW X3
  • For bikes that heavy I would not recommend a trunk mounted bike rack for your brand new 2018 BMW X3. Biggest reason is that none of our trunk mounted bike racks have higher capacities than 35 lbs per bike. Second being that even if you could carry that much weight it would most likely damage body panels of your vehicle. The best option is a hitch mounted bike rack as they are rated higher and offer a much more secure way to carry the bikes. I really like the Saris Freedom Superclamp...

  • Spare Tire Mount Bike Racks for a 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited with Backup Camera
  • The Hollywood Racks SR1, # HRSR1, fits around the spare tire on the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (JL) and thus would only block the backup camera when loaded. The same goes for the Malone RunWay # MPG2148. There is a high probability that you could use your swing-away rack with hitch # C13392 or # 76104 assuming you are using the stock spare tire size. On your Jeep the hitch receiver opening will be just about flush with the bumper which will be directly above it with maybe a 1 inch...

  • Best Bike Rack for a Womans and Childs Bike on a 2012 Volvo XC60
  • I went out to our test fit garage and tried out a few racks with one of our childs' bikes with fenders and a women's step through mountain bike to see if we had a good fit. In testing the Saris racks like the Freedom Super Clamp, part # SA4025F, the trouble I came across was that the child's bike (A 12-inch wheel bike with 24 inch wheelbase) was a little too short for the Saris' mounting devices to reach. This means that the bike would be riding freely in the cradles and have a chance...

  • Easy To Use Bike Rack Recommendation for 2015 Toyota Prius With Class I Trailer Hitch
  • Thanks for all that information and there is definitely a bike rack that meets all of your guidelines and will work on the Class I Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24847 that is on your 2015 Toyota Prius. I highly recommend the Saris Freedom EX 2 Bike Platform Rack # SA4412F because at 27 lbs it is extremely light, making it easy to handle and install in your hitch. It also has a 60 lb per bike weight capacity for E-bikes and a simple to use lever for both tilting the rack down or folding it...

  • Saris Freedom SuperClamp 2 vs Kuat Sherpa 2.0: Which is Easier to Lift Bike Onto
  • To load the inside bike on the Saris Freedom Superclamp # SA4025F you would not necessarily need to lift the bike vertically over the tilted arms. What you can do is lift the bike up high enough to get on the wheel cradles but instead angle the bike in and push it to the side far enough that the back tire clears the other arm of the rack. Then you can bring it back to the other side and center it on the rack and fit the cradles. On the other hand the Kuat Sherpa # SH12G might be a slightly...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Bike Rack for RadCity Step-Thru Electric Commuter Bike
  • The Saris Freedom 2 Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # SA4412B is compatible with bikes up to 60 lbs. Unfortunately your bike is just over that, so I recommend the Thule EasyFold XT 2 Electric Bike Platform Rack # TH903202 which is compatible with bikes up to 65 lbs and will not require any adapter bar. This will fully secure your bike by the frame and allow you to easily load your bike as well. It has many features the other bike carriers do not, so I've attached...

  • Which Rack is Lowest to the Ground the RockyMounts Solo, Thule T1 or Saris Freedom
  • If you have narrowed your decision down to three, the RockyMounts MonoRail # RKY10007, the Saris Freedom # SA4412B or the Thule T1 # TH9041 the rack among these that sits the lowest is the Thule T1. The Freedom has a very high 8 inch shank rise and the RockyMounts is configured in such a way that the platform the bike will sit on is quite a bit higher than that of the Thule. If the issue is height alone among just these three racks then the Thule T1 # TH9041 is the best choice of...

  • Recommended Hitch Adapter for Yakima Holdup Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier
  • The Replacement Aluminum Hitch Adapter Sleeve for Saris 1-1/4" Hitch Bike Racks # SA3032 is not the best option for you. There is not a shank adjustment sleeve like that for your Yakima Holdup. You would either want the 2 inch shank # 8880580 or the 1-1/4 inch shank # 8880581. An adapter sleeve just won't hold that particular rack well. The expander you referenced using like # HTAD is an option, but it will allow more sway as you mentioned and it will reduce the tongue weight capacity...

  • Recommended Bike Rack Which Can Hold Medium Sized Genze Ebike
  • I can absolutely help you find a bike rack that will transport your Genze Ebike. The most budget minded rack that will work with your Genze Ebike, and the one I highly recommend for you, is the Saris Freedom # SA4412B, which has a weight capacity of 60 lbs per bike and wheelbase limit of 48", both of which are in the range of your Genze. The Freedom can be used with either a 1-1/4" or 2" hitch, folds down for access to your cargo area, and is a full 12" from the center of the hitch pin...

  • Best Hitch Bike Rack Recommendation for 2018 Toyota RAV4
  • For your 2018 Toyota RAV4 with a hitch installed like the etrailer.com hitch part # E98864 installed I really like the Saris Freedom Superclamp bike rack part # SA4025F. This is a lightweight platform bike rack that only touches the bike at the tires and only weighs 30 lbs. The biggest drawback to platform bike racks has always been the weight of them, but with this rack you get the best of both worlds. The preferred attachment style with the lighter weight. Platform bike racks are also...

  • Recommended Budget Bike Rack for 2015 Honda CR-V
  • I have a few different recommendations for your 2015 Honda CR-V that you will want to look at. The Saris Sentinel 3 Bike Carrier # SA1052 will fit on the trunk of your Honda so you can make sure that the space on your roof and cargo area remains free. Keep in mind you will also need to get the Hatch Huggers for Saris Trunk Mount Bike Racks # SA3035 for installation on any of the Saris brand bike racks. Since it looks like you have some varying bike frames that might not sit properly...

  • Saris Superbones Trunk Bike Rack Recommendation for 2018 Volvo S90
  • The Saris SuperBones # SA802 has been confirmed as a fit for your 2018 Volvo S90 by Saris so it will fit. We recommend it for you too as it is easy to install, is lightweight at 19 lbs, does a great job securing bikes due to the strap system that holds them tight to the rack and is easy to operate, and because the straps that attach the rack to the vehicle are steel braided which is much more secure than the nylon straps of most racks which could easily be cut. If you plan on carrying...

  • Wheel-Mount 2-Bike Platform Rack for Class 1 Hitch on 2006 Toyota Prius
  • The Saris SuperClamp EX 2 Bike Platform Rack # SA4025F will fit 2-inch (Class III) hitches and also 1-1/4-inch (Class II) hitches but it will NOT fit a Class I hitch even though it is the same 1-1/4-inch size. The reason is that Class I hitches usually have a welded-in stop to prevent use of any accessory that is not rated as Class I. This helps to avoid accidental overloading of the hitch. You are absolutely right that there are heavier racks like the Thule EasyFold # TH903202 that...

  • Will Hitch Mounted Bike Carrier Interfere With Back up Sensors On 2017 Subaru Forester
  • When you use any hitch mounted accessory like a bike or cargo carrier in your trailer hitch, it will likely set the backup sensors off. If the rack does not set the sensors off, the bikes probably will. You may have a setting that allows you to mute the sensors when you are carrying bikes. When choosing any accessory for your Forester you want to make sure you have enough clearance at the back of the vehicle. I have attached a helpful article that explains how you can measure to make...

  • Is Curt Trailer Hitch Compatible With 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL SE with AWD
  • I checked with Curt just to make sure and the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13153 is absolutely compatible with your 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL SE with AWD. This will give your '19 Santa Fe a Class III, 2 inch hitch that has a concealed crosstube so only the receiver is visible, giving it high functionality but allowing your car to maintain its appearance. This hitch has a 900 lb tongue weight capacity and 6,000 lb towing capacity so it is perfect for towing or carrying a bike rack like the Saris...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2017 Acura RDX
  • I can help, but since you have a Class I hitch you can only carry up to 2 bikes with that setup. What you would need is a Class III hitch installed on your 2017 Acura RDX. For that you would want to remove the dealer hitch and then install the Draw Tite part # 75784. With this hitch you could easily carry a 3 bike rack. I really like the Saris Freedom Superclamp part # SA4025F. This is a lightweight platform rack (which is normally an unheard of combo). That means it'll be easy to install...

  • Using a Thule Bike Rack with 1-1/4 Inch Shank in a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • Replacement Aluminum Hitch Adapter Sleeve # SA3032 is not a confirmed fit for any Thule racks but there are other options. First, if you know which Thule bike rack model you have I can check to see if there is an alternate shank for it to replace the 1-1/4 inch one that is on the rack. If you are not sure which Thule bike rack you have or if there isn't a 2 inch shank for it then I recommend using a reducer sleeve, # HT02. This will only slightly increase the distance the bike rack...

  • Platform Bike Rack for 2 Bikes and a 2012 Toyota RAV4
  • For your needs the Saris Freedom # SA4412B is going to be the best option. I think you will really like this rack. First, it is very light weight at just 22-1/2 pounds. That makes it easy to install/remove from the trailer hitch. It can fit 1-1/4 inch (Class II) and 2 inch trailer hitches. It can be locked but you would need to add locking hitch pin # SA3022, sold separately. You will not need an adapter bar for the woman's bike frame. It measures 12 inches from the center of the hitch...

  • Trunk-Mount 2-Bike Rack for 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback
  • For the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Saris has not yet completed test fits to confirm compatibility of their Bones 2 trunk-mount carrier # SA805BL. The rack DOES fit the 2017 coupes and sedans so odds are good it will also work on the hatchback; this just has not been confirmed. Thule has not confirmed trunk rack fits on the 2017 Civic hatchback at this time either but Yakima does show their Fullback 2 # Y02634 and Halfback 2 # Y02636 as confirmed fits. Videos for both are included for you.

  • Using A 4 Bike Carrier On A 1-1/4
  • I have an adapter that will allow for you to use a 2" bike rack on a 1-1/4" hitch receiver, however, the Replacement Aluminum Hitch Adapter Sleeve for Saris part # SA3032 is designed for a 2" receiver. In order to mount your Saris Bike Porter Bike Rack on a 1-1/4" hitch receiver, you will need to use an adapter like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Adapter part # C45785. However, the maximum number of bikes allowed to be hauled on a Class I hitch receiver is 2 and your tongue weight will...

Instead you'd need a hitch like the part # 76194 to go the hitch bike rack route. I really like the Saris Freedom Superclamp part # SA4025F. This is a lightweight platform rack (which is normally an unheard of combo). That means it'll be easy to install and remove from your vehicle since it's light, but also it'll be very easy to load bikes on since...

The side straps need to be replaced with the Hatch Huggers for Saris Trunk Mount Bike Racks # SA3035 which will simply fit in the gap and will cinch tight when the hatch is closed.
