Comparing the Yakima FullSwing Y02465 and Thule Apex Swing XT TH9027XT


I have a 2018 Honda Pilot. I am looking for a 4 bike rack that will definitely fit 4 adult bikes. I also want a hitch pin lock. In another message etrailer recommeded the Y02465 vs. a different rack, but I am worried because the Y02465 weighs 56 pounds! This Thule rack only weighs 42 pounds. Which do you recommend? Trying to spend less than $600. Thanks!


Expert Reply:

The Yakima FullSwing 4 Bike Rack part # Y02465 and Thule Apex Swing XT 4 Bike Rack part # TH9027XT are essentially two different manufactures version of the same bike rack. I personally prefer the FullSwing a bit more as it has a higher weight capacity of 40 lbs per bike and the spacing between the bike can be adjusted. That said, if you need something a bit lighter than the Apex Swing XT is a perfect alternative at only 42 lbs.
