Plus, its innovative arc design delivers distance between your two wheelers for freakishly fast loading and unloading. On top of that, it boasts cutting-edge RDT cradles to reduce paint-pealing vibration and a patented No-Swing Cage that blocks your bikes from banging against each other. So, no matter how rough the road gets, your cycles are set to storm the summit.

What's more, the Thule Apex Swing boasts an array of security features. Heavy-duty integrated cradle locks bolt down your bikes, and the Snug-Tite™ receiver hitch lock clamps your carrier and halts hitch rattle. Even better, the Thule Apex Hitch Rack Installs easily without tools into any 2" receiver. Best of all, your Thule Apex Swing Bike Rack is built in the USA and backed by an unbeatable Lifetime Warranty.

Just traveled from OK to SD to WY to UT with this new Thule bike rack. Good rack overall but main issue with the design is the receiver hitch insert size and its locking mechanism...both are designed for a smaller hitch size 1 1/4" and don't work great with 2" receivers. Thule gives you and "insert" to use to increase insert bar from 1 1/4" to 2", which doesn't inspire much confidence when loaded w/4 heavy Mt. Bikes. Poor locking mechanism too, hard to get "lock-tight" without working loose!

Outstanding Rack

Rack works great, it is heavy but I believe it necessary for what it does. And as usual AA service was excellent, the product arrived as advertised and promptly.

Best rack made

Easy to put together, high quality. Locks to car and locks bikes to rack. Worth the money for a unit that will last a lifetime.

Excellent Product !!!

We purchased this hitch bike rack after searching many brands and models, decided on the Thule brand based on its excellent reputation and overall positive reviews on most of their products. I particularly chose the Apex Swing model for the ability to leave my bikes on the rack and simply swing the rack to the side to gain access to my trunk. We have also received many compliments as it looks great and is a relatively new product from Thule, no reviews available at time of purchased. Installs easily, is lighter than I expected, and is super sturdy and noise free. I highly recommend it for an SUV. The hitch rack also shipped promptly from AutoAnything. Great service! Will shop here again!
