Alumina 3 bike rack (Lightest)

Universal Hitch for 2-Inch & 1.25-Inch (26428) Out of Stock

Softride's Alumina 3 is a full-featured aluminum bike rack at a fraction of the weight of most, carrying up to three bikes, with our unique parallelogram design that lowers away with bikes loaded to allow rear access to vehicle.

Unique parallelogram base tilts carrier away from vehicle for trunk, hatch, or tailgate access - load your groceries or gear in the back without having to take your bikes off the rack.

Lightweight aluminum is perfect for taking rack on and off frequently.

Arms carry 3 bikes; removable and adjustable-width arms can accommodate both children's and adults' bikes, plus arms fold down for ease of parking.

Anti-sway cradles provide a third point of contact for extra stability.

Base locks onto vehicle with Quiet Ride Locking Hitch Bolt, which reduces movement of rack in hitch.

Comes out of the box ready to mount on vehicle and go; no complicated assembly required.

Powder-coated aluminum rack body with powder-coated steel arms.

Great bike rack for urban use or city apartment dwellers.

Arms fold away when not in use.
