BUZZ RACK Scorpion 2 bike folding wheel support rack BRP602

RRP: 345.00

The Scorpion is as good a 2 bike carrier as any, and better than most electric bike carriers. Because it folds up it is particularly easy to move around, to fit, and to store, and it has several other really clever design features. The 5 function lights are UK specification, and it looks very smart indeed.

We think that BUZZ RACK’s Scorpion deserves to be a top choice for anyone who wants to carry 2 bikes, especially heavy bikes or electric bikes.

Bike carriers that are strong enough for electric bikes tend to be pretty beefy themselves, so handling these heavier bike carriers can be awkward. The Scorpion is a solid carrier at 18.3kg, but because it folds up it's relatively very easy to move about and to fit, without straining your back. Carry it to the tow ball in the folded position – there’s a handle above the tow ball clamp, so it’s an easy vertical lift. Place it over the tow ball – you'll be standing above the tow ball, not some distance behind it. You'll also find that the Scorpion stays level and does not crash to the ground when you let go of it. Tighten, lock, unfold – all parts click into place, including the number plate holder.

It’s particularly easy to tilt, with the tilt control just above the number plate. The lights are 5 function – they include a reversing light and a fog light if you have a 13 pin socket - and are UK legal, i.e. the fog light is on the right hand side / off side.

Other features and specifications:

  • It's supplied fully assembled.
  • It’s small enough when folded to be stored in a car boot.
  • It self-adjusts to all tow balls.
  • Fitting is a matter of spinning a hand-turning wheel, a really quick, easy and ergonomically satisfactory thing to do. Turn the key in the tightening wheel and the carrier is then locked to the tow ball. An additional couple of turns on a Nyloc nut is usually required (spanner supplied), depending on the tow ball, to make sure the carrier won’t move from side to side.
  • It sits high on the tow ball, well clear of speed bumps and other hazards such as steep ferry ramps.
  • It's suitable for all bikes, including electric and other heavy bikes up to 30kg each, making it excellent long term value.
  • The wheel holders will accommodate all wheelbases, even very small children's bikes.
  • The wheel straps are tough, easily adjusted and fit tyres up to 2.8 inches. Adapters are available for wider tyres.
  • A Fat Bike wheel adapter is available if you have fat tyres or a longer strap is available if you have semi-fats - see below.
  • An extra anti-sway strap is included to prevent the front wheel from vibrating.
  • Both bike holders have locks, and the carrier also locks to the tow ball.
  • A steel frame helps protect the lights.
  • All parts are replaceable if e.g. someone forgets that a tow bar carrier is fitted and reverses into a wall - which happens!
  • Dimensions: 105cm wide by 62cm deep (measured from the centre of the tow ball mount to the outside edge of the number plate holder).
  • Weight: 18.3kg.
  • The BUZZ RACK Scorpion comes with a 5 function 13 pin lighting system, with UK compliant fog lights, i.e. the fog light is on the right hand side / offside. A 7 to 13 adapter is also provided, for cars with 7 pin systems (if you have a 7 pin socket the reversing light and fog light will not work - the 7 pin socket isn't wired for these functions).
  • The build quality - tube bending, welding, rust proofing, painting, component quality, is exemplary.

Exchange scheme: Tow bar carriers are part of our 90 day exchange scheme - click on the link below for details - so you can order without financial risk. All current tow bar carriers from all the brands we stock are available for exchange, including Pendle and Thule, even if they are no longer part of our standard stock range.

BUZZ RACK is manufactured by King Rack of Taiwan, a specialist bike sector engineering company since 1996. Their factory is state of the art, with much of their production being tube bending, specialist welding and finishing for other well known brands.

Delivery FAQs

When will my order arrive?
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Express Delivery orders placed on a Friday (before 1pm) should be delivered on the Monday or Tuesday, Express Delivery orders placed on a Saturday or Sunday should be delivered on the Tuesday or Wednesday. The arrangements for Very Heavy Items are different and are shown above.

What about Next Working Day delivery?
We have offered a reliable Next Working Day service for well over 20 years but, due to the pressure on the couriers caused by the coronavirus crisis and the huge increase in online shopping, we can no longer be confident about the delivery date, which is why we now call the service ‘Express delivery’. Most Express delivery orders will arrive on the next or second working day, but some will arrive on the second or third working day, or be split between these days. So-called “split deliveries” happen when the couriers do not have enough trailer space for everything that should be moved around the UK, so they will load what they can and leave the rest for the next trailer.

Is my delivery day guaranteed?
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. As well as split deliveries, all courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.

Do I need to be at home?
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver to an address which suits you – this does not need to be your home address. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.
