Need help with rack size, vehicle fit, bike fit, tire sizes or other questions?

A legit bike rack is an investment. Let's go through a few questions to make sure you're picking the right one.

VERTICAL BIKE RACK REQUIREMENTS

  • VelociRAX require a class III two inch hitch with a capacity of 500 lbs and  3 - 3/8 inch (86mm) depth past center of hitch pin hole to insert.

  • All VelociRAX models can carry 230 lbs. (bike weight)

  • Each bike slot can carry up to 55 lbs.

  • We recommend removing ebike batteries where possible and typically 4 ebikes will be at full rack capacity. Rubber bands (or bike tubes cut in ~1 inch sections) should also be placed on the brakes levers so brakes are engaged to decrease any natural motion between bike and rack.

  • Swing Aways and other hitch adaptors should be used with brake levers engaged to reduce motion between bike and rack. We now sell a hitch extender with built in anti-rattle. Check it out on the shop page. 

  • Overall height of all racks is 58 inches from the bottom of the hitch bar to the top of the tire hoops.

 

VelociRAX offers the only self lowering bike rack that provides the easiest vehicle access and the simplest roll in and roll out bike loading in the industry both on the car and in the garage. Impeccable quality, unmatched features at the best value.  VelociRAX Rack’em fast and enjoy the ride. 

What's Included:

  • The VelociRAX hitch mount vertical bike rack can hold up to 7 bikes depending on the model.

  • Garage mounting kit - Rack your bikes in the garage as well!

  • Integrated hydraulic dampers for easy hinging

  • 1/2 inch keyed hitch lock

  • Integrated anti-rattle locking system

  • VelociRAX Straps

  • All racks are hitch mount bike racks

Loading 

  • Roll the front tire and drop into the upper hoop

  • Lay the tire against the hoop

  • Route the VelociRAX strap through the tire and rack then secure to the strap anchor

  • Secure the rear tire in the same manner

  • Check out our videos to see this in action

Assembly

  • With a few wrenches and 30 - 60 minutes, you'll have your VelociRAX assembled and be ready to load bikes and head out. 

Swing Aways and other hitch adaptors should be used with brake levers engaged to reduce motion between bike and rack. We now sell a hitch extender with built in anti-rattle. Check it out on the shop page.
