Saris Freedom 4-Bike Tray Hitch Rack
There are few things in life that can compare to a road trip or wild adventure on the back of your bike, next to you dear family. The folks at Saris know that and this is the reason for which they built the Freedom 4 Bike hitch bicycle carrier.
When it comes to your family, there’s nothing too good or too safe. Likewise, make no compromise when you decide to take your family on cycling trip, whether we’re talking of your very own ‘Tour de France’ or about a real adventure on unexplored wild territories.
And in situations like this, the last thing you need to worry about is how you’re going to get there in the first place, with 4 bikes of different sizes and specs. But, luckily, this is not a problem anymore, since the Freedom hitch mount bike rack is available and provides a convenient, safe and smooth mean of transportation for your bicycles. But let the traits and features of the product speak in its name.
- Security is one of the main benefits of this 4 bike tray hitch rack, since its patented Cuscino pads, the bike frame cradle and rugged injection-molded wheel trays firmly hold the bikes on the rack (it can be further enhanced by the separate acquisition of the locking hitch lock – Model 3022).
- It can carry up to 4 bikes, with a maximum weight of 140 lbs. (35 lbs./ bike).
- The versatility of the product is shown through the fact that it fits most styles of bikes (from 12″ kicker bikes to 29″ fat bikes) and almost all 2’’ hitches on vehicles.
- The safety of transportation provided is gracefully combined with care and adjustability, as the protective rubber holders fit any frame, while the easily adjustable ratcheting straps of the bicycle hitch carrier firmly secure the bikes.
- But all of the above would be of no use if they weren’t convenient to use and the guys at Saris show they know that, creating a light platform hitch rack (53 lbs.) with a foot pedal activated tilt, that allows access to the vehicle cargo and for the rack to fold up when not in use.
- Moreover, the adaptability of the platform hitch rack is completed by the fact it fits a wheelbase up to 48’’ and it can be enhanced by the acquisition of the long wheelbase bar from Saris (also, the maximum tire width with the factory specifications of the rack is 2.25’’).
- If you are a fat-tire bike lover, that would not be a problem, since you can add specifically designed wheel holders to your Freedom hitch mount bike rack.
- All the treats above come in a compact package, no larger than 48.5 x 19.7 x 9.4 inches.
