Product Description

The Thule Vertex 4 is a hitch mount bike rack that will hold up to four bikes securely while still allowing easy access to the rear doors or rear hatch. The Vertex has two contoured, grooved, and well paddled frame cradles that will hold almost any frame size and will not damage bikes with brake lines that run underneath the bottom of the frame. Designed to fit both 2" and 1.25" hitch receivers, the Thule Vertex 4 will fit most vehicles with a trailer hitch. Additionally, the Vertex 4 has a curved vertical mast that is designed to provide more space between the rack and your car. This feature makes the Thule Vertex 4 great for hatchbacks that have a back hatch that protrudes out far. 

The Thule Vertex is great for the serious cyclist or the casual user. If you want to remove the rack between each time you need to transport your bikes, the Vertex 4 is lightweight and has a built in carrying handle. If you frequently transport your bikes or you just prefer not to remove the rack, then the improved hitch switch allows the whole rack to tilt away from your vehicle. With the rack tilted down, there is enough room to allows hatchbacks to swing open and room to load and unload things in your trunk. Please note you should not tilt down the rack when it is loaded. In addition to the whole rack folding back, the rack arms fold down to take up less room. This great if you park your vehicle in a tight places like cities or a garage. 

New and improved Thule T3 straps are used to strap your bike's frame down to the frame craddles - these new straps are stronger and more flexible than ever. For maximum stability, the rack arms also include anti-sway cages. These anti-sway cages are rigid rubberized components that attach to the lower edge of the bike arm, hanging below the bike cradle. As the top tube of the bike frame rests on the frame cradles, the anti-sway cages attach to the vertical tube section to prevent any swinging or swaying. This feature provides any bike-to-bike contact or bike-to-car contact. 

  • Holds up to 4 adult bikes
  • Fits 1 1/4" and 2" hitch receivers 
  • Curved design allows it to fit hatchbacks
Q:
Does this bike rack have a built in lock for bikes? Does it have a lock to lock it to the hitch?
 
A:
TheThule Vertex 4 bike rackdoesnotinclude built-in locks for the bike. It also doesn't have a lock for where it attaches to the hitch. If you need to leave your bikes unattended, you could probably use a bike cable lock to secure them, but we do not have a suggestion if you feel that the hitch itself might be removed from your vehicle.
 
Q:
Does this hitch take women's bikes with lower angled top frame?
 
A:
Our4 bike hitchshould work for a woman's bike with a lower angled top frame. However, we also have this frame adapter available from the manufacturer of the bike hitch - its forthe non straight angled top frame, to work on these type of hitches. We can't guarantee whether you would need the converter, though. You might be fine without it.
