  • 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
