No longer confined to the realm of backyard pool parties, long haul truckers and professional wrestling, the jackknife has gone mainstream. Instead of defining silly dives, truck troubles and Hulk Hogan pin moves, the jackknife is the latest and greatest way to haul your bicycles—the Swagman Jackknife Vertical Bike Rack.
This unique trailer hitch mounted bike rack holds bikes vertically for the easiest loading and unloading possible. It also makes your vehicle more aerodynamic, so you waste less fuel getting to the starting lines. And, it folds down when loaded to grant easy cargo and trunk access.
The real magic behind the Jackknife is the wheel holding system. The special wheel baskets only grab the wheels, and the ratcheting straps hold ‘em in place. That way, your bikes never get scratched or dinged, and there is no time–wasting wheel replacement when you get to the trailhead. What's more, your 2-bike Swagman rack fits both 2" and 1 ¼" receivers, while the 4 bike model fits 2" receivers. And of course, both are backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
