BUZZ RACK Buzzwing 4 - Replaced by Eazzy 4


What's the big deal about the Buzzwing 4? Fundamentally it's down to design, safety, quality, and ease of use - passes the highest safety standards. Consider the following:

  • It folds to fit in a car boot and to make storage really easy.
  • It fits to all tow balls, even the occasional tow ball that does not meet BS standards.
  • The Buzzwing 4 is particularly well balanced - you can let go once you've placed it on the tow ball, which makes fitting the rack much easier.
  • 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. Additional tensioning of a Nyloc nut is sometimes required (spanner supplied), depending on the tow ball, to make sure the carrier is firm.
  • The Buzzwing 4 is genuinely easy to tilt and well balanced during the tilting phase.
  • It sits high on the tow ball, well clear of speed bumps and other hazards such as steep ferry ramps.
  • The wheel holders will accommodate all wheelbases, even small children's bikes.
  • Ratchet straps allow a quick and secure attachment of the wheels, long straps can accommodate tyres up to 3” wide (a longer strap is also available - listed below).
  • Padded bike frame cradles rotate 360 degrees to fit any bike frame tubes, ratchet straps hold your bike securely.
  • All parts are replaceable if e.g. someone forgets that a tow bar carrier is fitted and reverses into a wall - which happens!
  • Dimensions: 105 x 93.5 cm deep (measured from the centre of the tow ball to the outside edge of the number plate holder).
  • Weight: 19.3kg.
  • Comes equipped with a locking cable to secure your bikes.
  • Locks to the tow ball.
  • Buzzwings are supplied with UK standard 3 function lights and a 7 pin plug; electrical adapters are available for those with 13 pin systems - see below.
  • The build quality - tube bending, welding, rust proofing, painting, component quality, is exemplary. All tools you might need are provided.
  • We also think it looks great!

This rack tilts far enough to open the tailgate on vehicles with all but the most vertical tailgates. Owners of larger vehicles with vertical tailgates (such as vans and bigger MPVs) report that the rack doesn't tilt far enough back to open the tailgate. If you have a vehicle with a vertical tailgate you may not be able to open it with this rack. We would recommend taking a look at the Atera Strada DL.

Unfortunately this carrier is not suitable for Volkswagen T5 models - the bottom of the tailgate clashes with the tow ball fitting mechanism. The Atera Strada DL3 is a great option for the T5 and even allows a top-hinged tailgate on the Transporter to open.

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 Atera 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 well known bicycle and car rack brands.

4 bikes - BUZZ RACK Buzzwing 4 Reviews

- 03/11/2017 | Vehicle type: Estate
We bought this in the summer and have just taken it on our first longer trip. It was really easy to use. Bikes fit well and are secure. With a bit of practice, we have it down to 15 minutes fitting rack and bikes ready to go. 2 adults, 2 kids.Tilting feature is very useful for getting in an estate boot. Would definitely recommend this and so much cheaper than some of the alternatives.

Got the BUZZ RACK Buzzwing 4 bike carrier after having a swan neck tower fitted. Great product for the price. Quite heavy, but easy to fit, but feels really sturdy. Fitted onto a Nissan Qashqai. The tilt function is good too for giving access to the boot even when the bikes are loaded. Looks good too. As usual, service from roofbox was great. Second bike rack have purchased from them after previously bought a Saris Bones. Needed a 4 bike rack due to growing kids....

Superb bike carrier. Very easy to fit and use. Ideal that once it rests on tow hitch it doesn't drop, meaning one person can fit it without aid. Bikes strap firmly in and stay put even over 200 miles. Tilt mechanism v useful for boot access. All round excellent product and value for money.

Excellent, quick and easy to set up. Quick and easy to use when out and about. We’re not “serious” bikers, only using it as hoc with the family, but this is well worth the money. We can fit four adult bikes on it. Great.

Excellent rack. It does hang out quite a distance but it performs perfectly. I’ve had no issues with it. Easy to put on and off , tilt system is handy although you do have to watch the tail light when tilting down or you may cause damage. I like the way it folds up too great for storing away. Overall I think is a great buy and would highly recommend the roof box company for their quick delivery and service

The 4 bike carrier is exactly as described. The whole look & feel of the product is sheer quality. It's easy to assemble from delivery, easy to attach & de-attach on the towbar on our car. It took us a couple of goes to find the best technique to arrange, mount & dis-mount our bikes but comes quickly with practice. We've invested in a box of surgical gloves to avoid getting oil on our hands when fastening the straps around the back wheel & frame. Also, care is needed not to get oil on a long sleeved top. Overall we're extremely satisfied with the product & service. The product videos demonstrating the assembly & usability were excellent & helpful.

Really easy to set up and use, feels very solid and holds the bikes firmly. Tilt function very useful. Folds up well to reduce storage space. Need to be careful with the sliding clips that hold the arms down in place as it is easy to pull the arms up with them in place and break them as we found out! However very quickly replaced free of charge so great service.
- 02/07/2017 | Vehicle type: Estate
This is. a very well made and quality iitem. IIt folds up much smaller than any other 4 bike carriers I have seen and takes up minimal garage space. It takes around 2 minutes to get it on the car and firtting is straight forward. I sometimes have to wiggle the part that fits over the tow hook to ensure that non of the of the silver part protrudes form under the ball. Bikes fit on very quickly and they are held securely. They do not move about when driving the car. Also, the don't touch each other so their is no bike frames rubbing together. It's not letting get at 20kg but considering all of the above this is a highly recommended bike carrier.
- 30/06/2017 | Vehicle type: 4x4
This product really is geat. I was worried that it'd be flimsy and therefore unstable once 4 bikes are installed, this certainly isn't the case. Looks great attached to the back of my Land Rover. My only gripe if I have any is the lateral movement. You really do need to tighten the bolt very tight to ensure that the rack doesn't swing when turning corners. The first time I Took it out I thought I'd done it right enough and it moved slightly on the trip. I think the design would be better if the was something in place to prevent this movement at all but once tightened, seems ok. Highly recommended.

About our reviews:

We test, and often use personally, almost all the products we sell, and we stand behind our comments and recommendations unless customers convince us they need changing. Our Customer Services and Workshop staff also have input into our recommendations.

But it's because we've learned a lot over many years that customer feedback is so important. Fresh, first time out opinions are the most useful ones, and in any event we certainly don't have access to the full range of vehicles that our customers have between them.

Product feedback from existing customers helps our new customers make choices, and also helps our suppliers with their product development.

We e-mail our customers a week or so after their order arrives and invite them to send in a review.

Some reviews are suitable for multiple products. Where appropriate we may, for example, use the same review for a number of different roof bar products where the only difference is the length of the roof bar.

Delivery charges and arrangements:

We charge a contribution towards delivery costs, depending on what you order, where you live, and how quickly you want the goods.

For most UK addresses, the charge for our two to three day service is £5.50 (£9.50 for orders including a roof box) and our charge for Next Working Day deliveries is £8.50 (£12.50 for orders involving a roof box). AutoSock, shoe chains, RUD i-Sock, and small spare parts, are charged £3.95 (Royal Mail Tracked), £4.95 (Royal Mail Express Tracked) or £5.95 (express courier, usually Next Working Day).

There are different charges for any delivery including a sea crossing, and deliveries to Skye - we will contact you with a quote on receipt of order.

Orders for Next Working Day delivery need to be received by 4.00pm.

There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Next Working Day orders placed on a Friday will be delivered on the Monday, Next Working Day orders placed on a Saturday will be delivered on the Tuesday.

We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver on a day and at an address which suits you. 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.

No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. 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.
