Product Details

Saris Axis Steel 4-Bike

Saris' Axis Steel 4-Bike provides a stable, easy way to transport your bikes. This lightweight hitch rack is easy to install or remove and it tilts to provide access to the rear of your vehicle. The durable frame securely hauls four bikes of up to 35 pounds each, and it fits both standard hitch sizes. Its ratcheting anti–sway straps secure and stabilize your bikes while protecting their finish.

          Comments:

          # 1 reason: It's 20 lbs (according to my bathroom scale, Saris hasn't published its weight!!!). I won't leave it on the car regularly. That it weighs less than my wife's bike is important, since I put the rack on and off. It's easily in and out of the 2 in receiver, one handed at that weight, and I'm pushing 60. Went 70 miles at 75 MPH and everything was great in the rear view mirror. Anti-sway straps, hitch connection... all worked perfectly. #2 reason: functionality. It tilts, so getting and putting away the ratchet wrench is convenient with the hatchback. It holds 4 bikes, (have only done two. The arm length and cradle spacing seem more than adequate, though). Comparative shopping: Looked A LOT at the hitch rack market leaders. They are 50% to 100% more expensive and weigh 100% to 150% more. Not the value I was looking for. The Saris has fixed cradles; others got criticism for moving with bikes in place, though it's hard to understand how. Other tips: put the lightest bike on first. Lifting up and over three sets of cradles is hard. Would love Saris to come up with a ratchet strap that is easier to use for the cradles and seat tubes. My finger strength is declining. I like the threaded hitch pin. Locking the bikes with a cable lock is easy. A hitch pin lock is next on the list. Saris could buy a hitchpin with a hole that is more industry standard.
