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 Moose) or a more expensive wheel support rack (Best Buys = Atera STRADA DL at the top end, BUZZ RACK BuzzRunner in the mid market), but also check out the excellent MaxxRaxx carriers which have the benefits of both types.

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 sit horizontally on the tow ball as soon as placed there; other racks crash onto the ground until they're clamped on
  • 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

  • The E-bike is 5cm closer to the vehicle so if your vehicle has a vertical tailgate then we recommend a sliding DL3 or, if you have electric bikes, a Sport M2

  • Supplied as a 2 bike unit; a 3rd bike adapter is available
  • Size (folded): 100cm x 56cm x 21cm high. Weight: only 12.2kg!
  • The 3 bike DL3 is a no brainer if you want the best 3 or 4 bike tow bar bike rack, but the sliding rails on this 2 bike version are shorter than the 3 bike's, so the case for this DL2 is harder to make. We recommend either a Sport 2 (cheaper) or an E-bike (even if you don't have an E-bike, you get 5cm more space between each bike)
  • This DL2 has Atera's unique boot access system: the bikes slide away from the vehicle, the rack taking the weight

  • Size (folded): 120cm x 59cm x 20cm high. Weight: 15.5kg
  • Extra space between each bike and a width of 120cm makes it our recommendation for bikes with long wheelbases
  • The E-bike ML is 5cm closer to the vehicle so if your vehicle has a vertical tailgate then we recommend a sliding DL3 or, if you have electric bikes, a Sport M2
