Shingleback Vertical Hitch Mounted 5 Bike Rack

Shingleback is an Australian company, named after the Shingleback lizard, a very distinctive and armoured little beast which is known for its resilience, its blue tongue, and an especially practical nature, as well as its unique looks or "design".

The Vertical bike rack system is available in 3, 4, 5, and 6 bike capacity variations, with all sharing the same basic form. The focus of this rack is all about no-nonsense practicality and durability, and in these areas it truly excels. 

The Vertical bike rack can be fitted to most vehicles with a 50mm hitch and can accommodate a wide range of bike sizes. From kid's bikes through to full size downhill bikes, with tire widths from 1.8 inches up to 3 inches and wheel sizes from 20 inches to 29 inches.

This rack is perfect for both family holiday use and serious MTB trips seeking out the most challenging trails. The mounting system allows for no frame contact, which means it's fine for use with carbon frame bikes and even full suspension downhill bikes with angled top tubes. However, we don't recommend this rack for road racing bikes with thin tire widths.

You can't tilt the carrier down to access the rear of your vehicle with bikes loaded, however, you can tilt it with bikes unloaded. Additionally the optional swing-out adapter kit allows you to have have full rear access with your bikes loaded. It also has the ability to adjust the distance from the vehicle as standard, allowing mounting to a huge range of vehicles, including some RV's, campers and even some trailers.

Another great optional extra is the trolley stand, which essentially converts the Shingleback Vertical into your bike storage system, adding further to the useability of the rack.

Loading and unloading bikes is simple, and once you've done it once or twice its one of the fastest systems around. Although speed and simplicity of use aren't the primary focus of the design it certainly hasn't been ignored, it really is a cinch. Installation is also straightforward and will take the average person 15-20 minutes to complete, please refer to the instructions below for more details on fitting.

Shingleback cover these bike carriers with a 10 year warranty, which demonstrates their commitment to quality and durability.
