The Swagman Summit Vertical Bike Rack


The Swagman Summit Vertical Bike Rack

There are many ways to carry bikes on road trips or on shuttle weekends and the Swagman Summit ($1,099.00 CAD) is the latest vertical rack to come across our radar…

The Swagman Summit is designed to fit into 2″ hitch receivers, with a four bike carrying capacity. This versatile mountain bike rack can carry fat bikes too–tire trays are wide enough for 5″ tires. The front wheel rests in zero-frame contact trays and has ratchet straps for tires.

To lower the rack, simply pull the yellow cam-lever, and then lower it or lift it back into place easily, even with bikes loaded, thanks to the integrated easy-assist gas shock. Enhanced security is offered with a threaded locking hitch pin, and two secure anchor points for use with 3rd party lock-and-chain systems.

Customize the fit of the rack on your vehicle with the two-position drawbar, and for larger groups, purchase the Add-On to maximize capacity to 6 bikes total.
