With a new shape and less wobbling, the Thule Apex 5-bike hitch rack securely carries 5 bikes. It offers greater distance between bikes and better ground clearance than previous Thule hitch racks.

  • Features

    • Increased mast height improves ground clearance and arc design in mast and arms offers easy bike loading and carrying
    • Tilt-down design with Hitch Switch™ quick-release lever allows arms to fold down when not in use and tilts carrier away from vehicle for fast rear vehicle access
    • Included Snug-Tite™ Stinger receiver lock secures rack to the hitch receiver; 4 walls of fastening contact within receiver eliminate vertical and horizontal movement
    • New Hold Fast Cradles are shaped to cushion bike frames and feature Thermal Plastic Elastomer (TPE) road damping pads that absorb road forces and vibrations to protect bikes
    • Anti-Sway Cages with integrated soft-touch TPE strips protect bike frame finishes and prevent bike-to-bike and bike-to-vehicle contact; reinforced rubber cradle straps
    • Thule Apex 5 accommodates only 2 in. receiver hitches
    • Integrated locking cable secures bikes and stores conveniently in the rack's support arms
    • Easy mounting of hitch rack requires no tools; push rack into receiver until auto-pin engages, tighten knob and lock the hood of the housing
    • Not intended for tandem or recumbent bikes; carrying bikes with step-through frames requires the purchase of an adapter (sold separately)
