The 9028 Vertex two bike carrier bolts securely to a 50mm square tow hitch socket. Its tough American design makes it a heavy duty unit that will hold your bikes securely, looks great and provide years of service.

(4 bike version shown). The Vertex bike carrier tilts away from the vehicle with a simple hand lever giving access to the rear of the car.

Soft rubber cradles cushion the bike and anti-sway cradles are provided to give additional restraint to the bikes. The cradles have channels moulded into them for cables to sit in to without crushing them against the bike frame.

The Vertex bike racks simply bolt onto the tow hitch using the supplied bolt and spanner. Alternatively the STL2 Snug-Tite lock (shown on right) can be supplied as an optional extra.

What Steve thinks......

I think the Vertex bike carriers are great, especially how the tilt mechanism works superbly. In our store we sell many more of the 4 bike version which doubles the units capacity for an extra 50 bucks. However, if you think you will only ever want to carry one or 2 bikes then the 9028 is a great option that will be lighter, cheaper and add less length to the car than the 4 bike version.
