CURT Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2022 Ford Maverick- Video

CURT Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2022 Ford Maverick

Hi everyone. Aiden here with etrailer. Today we're gonna be taking a look at the Curt Premium on our 2022 Ford Maverick. This is gonna be a hanging style bike rack that can carry up to four bikes and the bike's gonna hang by the frame. Now that is gonna mean we want to avoid carbon frame bikes because that can damage the frame and with alternative frame bikes, we probably wanna pick up a bike adapter bar to make sure it hangs level. Otherwise, though, it's gonna work well for a wide variety of bikes, the biggest being kids' bikes because the arms actually narrow together at the end of the rack so it's more accommodating for those small frames. more

Hi everyone, Aidan here with etrailer. Today we're gonna be taking a look at the Yakima FullTilt hanging style bike rack on the back of our 2022 Ford Maverick. To get this bike rack installed, we've got to get it into the hitch first. It will fit in a two inch by two inch or an inch and a quarter receiver tube. We've got our two inch receiver tube today and it uses the included adapter sleeve. Now on the front mast of the bike rack there is a black lever that I can pull to release the shank and actually fold it out and it'll lock in place. more

Saris Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2014 Toyota Prius v

Hey everyone, it's Evangeline here at etrailer and today we'll be taking a look at how the Saris SuperClamp EX two bike platform rack fits on the 2014 Toyota Prius V. So the SuperClamp EX is very versatile because you have an 1 1/4" shank as well as a included 2" hitch adapter. With a 60 pound weight capacity per bike whether you have your light bikes or your heavier bikes, it can work with them. Now there's some downsides to this too which it does take a little bit more extra effort to get things lined up. With that 2" hitch adapter, I cannot use the hitch pin alignment collar so I'm gonna have to do this manually every time I play it into my hitch. So now that hitch pin hole on the bike rack is aligned with the hitch pin hole on the vehicle. more

RockyMounts MonoRail 2 Bike Platform Rack Review - 2022 Toyota RAV4

How's it going everyone Ethan at etrailer here today to talk to you about the RockyMounts MonoRail on our 2022 Toyota RAV4. The RockyMounts MonoRail is a two-bike platform style bike rack that holds onto our bikes right here with the wheel hook, and another point of contact right down here with this wheel strap. So because it holds the bike by the wheel rather than the frame, it's gonna be a good bike rack for your carbon fiber bikes or your alternative style bikes because there won't be any frame contact like I mentioned before. And it supports up to 60 pounds per bike, so it should be fine for any of your higher range mountain bikes. Another thing I like about this bike rack is that if you come down here and pull this blue lever, it allows you to tilt the bike rack towards you and in doing so you can actually come around and access the cargo area. And as you can see, plenty of clearance. more

Hollywood Racks Destination 2 Bike Platform Rack Review - 2022 Toyota RAV4

How's it going everyone It's Ethan at etrailer here, today taking a look at the Hollywood Racks Destination on our 2022 Toyota RAV4. How this rack's actually gonna hold onto our bike is by using these padded rotating cradles that also have a zip strip on the end of them, they rotate 360 degrees, and they can support alternative frames, but if you we're to have a carbon frame bike, it's something you probably wanna avoid. Our bike is then held on by two secondary points of contact at the bottom here, these straps, one goes through the front, one goes through the back. The bike rack itself doesn't tilt away, which is something you're gonna wanna keep in mind, but we'll go ahead and show you how the bike comes off. So you're gonna go ahead and release this back strap first, come around to the front side, release this other strap. And this is where it can get a little bit tricky with this one, because you're gonna have to hold the bike while you manipulate this, and for our mountain bike here, it's actually going through the cup holder, so it's something to keep in mind, is that it might not be the perfect fit for all of your bikes, but if you just bear with me, should come out eventually, there we go. more

The Yakima FullTilt Bike Rack is gonna be a hanging style bike rack as you can see, and it can carry up to five bikes, which makes it a fantastic option for the Ford Escape. Now, let's take a look at how it fits on there. From directly behind the Escape, looking at how the rack fits on here, you can see that your back windshield is gonna be pretty much obstructed, especially when you do load all the way up to five bikes on here. Your backup camera and your license plate will have reduced visibility, your third brake light from your cowling should still be visible to the drivers behind you, but with five bikes on here, again, with the tires hanging off to both sides, your taillights will be obstructed. more

The Swagman Current is uniquely designed to handle electric bikes, so it's gonna have a 60 pound weight capacity per cradle in the two inch by two inch hitches, and it's gonna use a wheel hook design to secure the bike down into the two cradles. The hooks on here are very nice, because they do have such a thick padding. However, because they are hooks that clamp down on the frame, they will make it incompatible with any carbon frame bikes you may have. Looking at how the rack sits on here with a bike loaded up, we can see that our third brake light cowling is still fairly visible to any drivers behind us. more

It's able to hold by the wheels, so any of your odd shaped frame or your carbon frames are gonna be perfect for this. And in my opinion, whenever it comes to handles for these arms, this is probably one of the best for the wheel hold type. It's going to be a little bit goofy to push down, but overall, once you get it, it's much easier to work with this than some others, like the Inno Tire Hold, which has it down here, so you have to hold onto the arms as you push forward and press the button at the same time. more

And if you have a carbon frame bike, you probably wanna avoid any sort of use of this at all 'cause it's gonna be held solely on the frame here. Okay, so one thing that we're gonna note here is that once you take this anti-sway out of play, and I can't, it's not the easiest thing to get to in the world to be honest but once you get that out, you're gonna notice that the bike does move pretty good back and forth but gravity usually does its thing and holds those in place for the most part. more

As you can see, even though we have a straight frame, it's still a little bit of a pain to, kind of, get in the right position, and then, also you won't be able to use this on any kind of carbon frame, so that's always something to keep in mind, but, if you happen to have something that's a little bit sturdier and heartier, I think this is gonna be a good choice. more

With this though, you do have a 60 pound weight capacity per bike, so it's gonna be good for some of our e-bikes. more

Saris Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Hey everyone, it's Evangeline here at etrailer. And today we'll be taking a look at how the Saris Super Clamp EX platform rack fits on the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee. So the super clamp EX is pretty popular because of its simplistic design, where you have two frame mounts here or wheel mounts. And because they are wheel mounts, no matter what kind of frame you have, whether it's carbon fiber frame, step through frames, or even a mountain bike like this, you don't have to get a frame adapter bar. Also, for some bikes with fenders, this can work out too. Now it has its pros and it has its cons as well. more

Rhino Rack Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Hi everyone, it's Evangeline here at etrailer, and today we'll be taking a look at how the Rhino-Rack two-bike hanging rack fits on a 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee. So this is a hanging rack that is ideal if you want something that's more compact. Doesn't take up much space. Since this has the ability to carry around two bikes, it's very, very short. So that way if you maybe have a smaller garage, you need to back up into a tight spot, you already have a larger SUV so this helps with that. Now, hanging racks do have their downsides as well when it comes to stability as well as ease of getting into the car. more

Kuat NV 2-0 Base 2-Bike Platform Rack Review - 2020 Ford Escape- Video

Kuat NV 2-0 Base 2-Bike Platform Rack Review - 2020 Ford Escape

How's it going Ethan with etrailer here to show you the NV Base 2.0 on the 2020 Ford Escape. So with the NV Base, you have the wheel hook here as your primary point of contact and the strap in the back as your secondary point, so there's no contact with the frame at all, which is great for carbon bikes or alternative frame bikes. So your wheel base here will support you from anywhere up to 50 inches, and the weight capacity is about 60 pounds per bike, so it'll support most of your larger mountain bikes and maybe even some e-bikes. So if you come down here, you can see this pedal that allows you to tilt this back, and that gives you a little bit more room to see if you can't get enough clearance to open your hatch. So as you can see here, plenty of room, no real troubles with that. They go right back down, and then you can come right back around to the front, lift this guy up until you hear a click, and then you should be nice and secure and ready to go. more
