Tow bar mounting bike carriers

There's quite a lot to think about before buying a tow bar rack so we recommend that you read our Buying Guide and Recommendations. In summary, choose between a cheaper hang on style rack (Best Buy = BUZZ RACK Buffalo) or a more expensive wheel support rack (Best Buys = Atera STRADA DL3 at the top end, BUZZ RACK Eazzy in the mid-market). The British made MaxxRaxx carriers are unique in that they combine the benefits of both rack types and are your only solution if you need to tow a trailer or caravan and carry bikes at the same time.

All the tow ball racks are in our 90 day exchange scheme so we hope that you'll buy with the confidence that if your first choice is not quite right then you can exchange it for another. Please also use the Filter and Sort tools to help you choose.

We have no doubt that Atera's STRADA Sport and E-bike (tilting) and STRADA DL (sliding) tow bar bike racks are the best. Why?
  • They're kind to you and your back: relatively very light, very easy to carry around

  • they automatically adjust to all tow ball types and sizes
  • the shape of the frame allows you to get right behind the car boot when loading and unloading; no need to stretch awkwardly
  • at 100cm wide they can be placed in the car boot when you're off cycling, out of harm's way
  • their wheel holders provide the best wheel protection and bike stability
  • TÜV and City Crash tested, and winners of numerous awards
