    REI Members get back an estimated $ 38.00 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    The built-in hydraulic mechanism of the Softride Dura Assist 4 Bike Hitch rack helps you raise and lower the bike mast easily so you can spend your energy on the ride rather than on loading the bikes.

    • Mast arms feature built-in reflectors; arms are removable, making this rack a great choice if you park in a garage or parallel park on a street
    • Locking Quietride anti-rattle hitch bolt reduces vibration noise; includes a cable lock for securing bikes to rack; lock requires the use of a pad lock, not included
    • The Softride Dura Assist 4 Bike Hitch rack fits both 1.25 and 2 in. hitches
    • Holds 4 bikes weighing 40 lbs. each
    • Not intended for tandem or recumbent bikes; carrying bikes with step-through frames requires the purchase of an adapter (sold separately)

    Softride Dura Assist 4 Bike Hitch Rack is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bike rack, but not perfect I like the Softride Dura assist bike rack that I purchased. I was also looking at the Yakima Swing Daddy and the Thule version that swings out as well. What sold me on the Softride is that I don't need to swing out the bikes to have access to my rear hatch. My only complaint is that the hydraulic assist is a little difficult to tilt if you don't have any bikes on the rack. It took a bit of force to tilt down the bike rack. If you buy this Softride bike rack, I would recommend using a 22mm socket (with 1/2 inch drive) to attach to your hitch. The instructions say to use a adjustable wrench, but the only thing that does is strip your bolt and it is highly unlikely that you can torque the bolt to the recommended 60 foot pounds. An appropriate sized 22mm socket and ratchet does a much better job.
