BEST BIKE RACKS FOR ELECTRIC BICYCLES

These top rated hitch racks are ideal for bulkier loads such as e-bikes and fat tires. Made of durable powder coated steel, all our heavy duty bike racks can support electric bikes up to 60 lbs. with minimal frame contact. Included tire and safety straps and keyed locks provide security for your bikes, while a tray-style design provides easier loading for you.
For a 1.25" hitch, also consider the K1 Overdrive Sport Hitch Mounted Bike Rack.

It's best practice to remove the battery when loading ebikes onto a rack to help lighten weight and increase protection.
The included Safety Strap must be used at all times during transport.

BEST FIT FOR NO FRAME CONTACT

For a carbon frame or a desire to have no contact between the rack and the bike frame, tire retention is the best solution. Our C2 Premium Bike Rack has wide capacity wheel trays (up to 5 inches) with clamping arms for the front tires, and sliding ratchet straps to secure the back tires. A 1.25 to 2.00 inch hitch adapter is included.

This rack will have no contact with the bike frame. The included Safety Strap must be used at all times during transport.
