Hitch mounted bike racks are notorious for obstructing rear access to your ride. Rather than sacrificing cargo access for easy bike loading, get both with the Thule Vertex Swing Away Hitch Bike Rack .

This hitch bicycle rack features a swinging arm that sweeps the entire bike rack off to the side of your vehicle—giving you total access to your ride's rear. Its unique arc design gives this rack ample ground clearance which ensures hassle-free travel. And, when you load your bikes into this rack's Hold Fast Cradles™ and anti-sway cages, they stay cushioned and protected from bike-on-bike and bike-on-vehicle contact.

The Vertex Swing hitch bike rack has the capacity to carry up to four bikes. And, when not in use, its arms fold down and it tilts away from the vehicle for complete access to the rear cargo area. It even features a convenient handle that makes taking this rack on and off your ride easy. Plus, your Thule Vertex Swing Away Hitch Bike Rack is built in the USA and backed by a Lifetime Warranty.

My second Thule hitch mount bike rack

Ease of Installation

This is to replace my 10 year old Parkway. Need the swing function but am not comfortable with the Apex hitch function. I need something that is simple and last long. So far I have no complaint. Great quality just like any other Thule product. I also own its Force box and roof top ski rack. All of them are very solid.

Good solution for a truck with a tail gate.

Good construction. Heavy but balanced. A little hard to fit 4 bikes on but with a little play it'll work. It rattles a bit even with all the bolts tightened. It does the job and I like the built in lock cable.

Great bike rack

Swing away option is great!! Didn't realize how much I needed it. Only issue with this rack is its pretty difficult to put 4 bikes on it. Have trouble with 2 adult and 2 kids mountain bikes.

I have a pickup truck and always found it a problem to open the gate to get something having to tilt down the rack with bikes on it. This rack just magically swings completely clear of the vehicle with the bikes on it and allows me to even put full sheets of plywood in the bed without having to take a single bike off. This was a wonderful design. I love it.

I love it

The Thule bike rack is an awesome addition to my bike riding experience. It loads quickly it's sturdy and secure and it looks good. I would recommend the Thule swing away bike rack to anyone who's looking for a bike rack for their vehicle.
