BUZZ RACK E-Scorpion XL 2 bike folding rack no. BRP622

£394.95
RRP: £482.50
Code: BRP622

  • Ideal for eBikes, fat bikes and larger bikes
  • Adjustable wheelholders and upright accommodate very large bikes
  • Tilts to allow access to the boot
  • Compact and foldable for storage, with a transport wheel for easy storage and handling
  • Extremely well made and robust rack
  • Uses BUZZ RACK's new tow ball attachment system - quick and easy to fit.


We think that BUZZ RACK’s E-Scorpion XL deserves to be a top choice for anyone who wants to carry 2 bikes, especially larger, heavier or electric bikes. It's a hugely versatile rack that can take a large range of different types of bikes. It has a height-adjustable upright and a bigger (30cm) distance between the bikes, so it's our recommendation for bikes with a very large frame, particularly full-suspension e-MTBs. Whatever bike you have now (or in the future) the E-Scorpion should be able to accommodate it.

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 E-Scorpion XL is a solid carrier at 20.8kg, but because it folds up it's very easy to move about and to fit, without straining your back. It's even got an integrated transport wheel so you won't have to do much lifting of the rack. Just wheel 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 E-Scorpion XL stays level and does not crash to the ground when you let go of it. Fit, lock, unfold – all parts click into place, including the number plate holder.

It uses BUZZ RACK's new tow ball fitting, so securing it to the tow ball is simple too. You push a handle down to secure it to the tow ball, then some extra fine-tuning using a dial may be required. You can lock it to the tow ball - a green tab lets you know everything is secure.

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:

  • The Buzz E-Scorpion XL is particularly well balanced - you can let go once you've placed it on the tow ball, which makes fitting the rack much easier.
  • You mount it to the tow ball from folded, this gives you loads of space to fit it to the car (no bashing shins or straining your back).
  • It's very easy to fit to the tow ball, using a lockable handle to secure it in place.
  • 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 larger wheelbases; up to 129cm.
  • Ratchet straps allow a quick and secure attachment of the wheels, long straps can accommodate tyres up to 4.8” wide.
  • A strap extension kit (available separately) adds 10cm to the length of the original wheel straps.
  • Lockable frame arms hold your bikes securely and can be attached to any part of the frame, or the seat post.
  • Locks to the tow ball.
  • The upright can be raised, so it's suitable for bikes with very large frames.
  • It tilts to allow access to the boot (on most vehicles), even with the bikes fitted. It is genuinely easy to tilt and well balanced during the tilting phase.
  • Dimensions: 127 x 69cm deep (measured from the centre of the tow ball to the outside edge of the number plate holder).
  • Weight: 20.8kg.
  • It folds so you can easily store it in your boot when required, making finding a parking space before your ride much easier. It's even small enough to fit it in the back of most cars if your boot is full.
  • A built-in transport wheel makes it as easy as possible to get the rack to and from your car. You won't even need to lift the rack until you put it on the tow bar. Because it folds it's much easier to manoeuvre.
  • 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. An adapter is available separately if you have a 7 pin socket.
  • All parts are replaceable if e.g. someone forgets that a tow bar carrier is fitted and reverses into a wall - which happens!
  • A loading ramp is available separately
  • 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!

Deciding which bike carriers to buy is not always easy, especially as you may not have had experience of using bike carriers before. We hope that our buying guides provide useful guidance about which bike carrier 'strategy' will be most appropriate for your circumstances, as well as highlighting the best features of particular models. We also have troubleshooting FAQs - for example, some customers struggle at first to fit four bikes onto a tow ball carrier, and wonder whether a different carrier would allow the bikes to be spaced wider apart. (It won't, but we have some good tips which make bike fitting much easier.)

Our bike carriers Exchange Scheme covers roof mounting and tow ball mounting bike carriers only. Rear door mounting / strap on carriers are not included, and nor are roof bars. It allows you to exchange within 90 days of invoice date. Most exchanges are for roof mounting upgrades, or are tow ball carriers with very basic tilting systems being exchanged for easy to use sliding / tilting carriers.

These are the rules of the bike carriers Exchange Scheme:

  • You are allowed one exchange only.
  • The original equipment must be in "as new" condition, subject only to fair wear and tear.
  • The replacement items must be different models from the originals.
  • The replacement items must not be part of a package deal or be from our Bargains section.
  • Roof bars are never part of the Exchange Scheme.

This is how the exchange scheme works:

  • We charge in full for the replacement items, including the appropriate carriage charge and a charge for any packaging needed for the return of the originals.
  • We pay the return carriage costs.
  • When the originals arrive back here we refund you for their invoice value, but you won't get back more than the invoice value of the replacements. In other words, if the replacements are cheaper than the originals we won't be giving you "extra cash back".

Please note: we can only collect items from mainland UK.

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.

These are our standard charges; there are usually surcharges for all offshore destinations and some remote postcodes - for details please see our delivery information page.

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?
Most Express delivery orders will arrive on the next working day, if the order is placed before the cut-off time (see above). Some will arrive on the second working day if there has been a "split-delivery". 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.

We take the following cards, and also PayPal. Please note that the entry on your card statement will be from "The Roof Box Company".

Bike carriers with 7 pin plugs

Wheel support bike carriers which are supplied with 7 pin plugs usually only include rear lights, brake lights and indicator lights, which is why they are often called ‘3 function lights’.

Unusually, Thule bike carriers with 7 pin plugs also include a fog light; this works when plugged into 7 pin electrics, but it does not work when plugged into 13 pin electrics via an adapter.

Bike carriers with 13 pin plugs

Bike carriers which are supplied with 13 pin plugs include a fog light and reversing light, as well as rear lights, brake lights and indicator lights – which is why they are often called ‘5 function lights’.

If these are plugged into 13 pin electrics then all 5 functions will work.

If they are plugged into 7 pin electrics via an adapter then the fog light should work, but the reversing light on the bike carrier will not work.

Please note

These notes assume that your tow bar electrics have been wired correctly!

Tow bar wiring in the digital age is much more complicated than it used to be when everything was analogue. Our experience is that if you are having lighting problems, e.g. a fog light does not work in 7 pin tow bar electrics, the problem is much more likely to be caused by the wiring, not by a dud bulb in the bike carrier.
