The Thule Vertex bike carrier range is an extremely popular collection of bike racks for your car. They are American made units with a tough, heavy duty design. They simply attach to a 50 mm square socket found on a hitch style towball and are secured in place with a few turns of the supplied spanner to firmly bolt them in place. Alternatively the Snug-Tite lock can be added for piece of mind if you leave the carrier attached while away from the vehicle.

The bikes are held in soft cradles and a restraining strap stops your bikes swinging around as well as anti-sway cradles which can be used for additional restraint.

The tilting versions are very easy to operate to allow opening of the boot lid or tail gate of the vehicle. Alternatively the Swing Away version goes even further and allows the carrier, complete with bikes, to be swung entirely out of the way providing completely unobstructed access to the rear of the car.
