Higher Wheel Support Rack

Availability: In Stock
Price: Price : £199.25 (include VAT)

This is a special version of our Wheel Support rack for use while towing a trailer or caravan.

Whether you are going for a quick blast around a trail centre or setting off on an epic mountain tour you want a dependable rack that is simple to use.

A Wheel Support is the ultimate rack for your needs.

  • The most versatile rack in our range – fits almost any vehicle with a tow bar and almost any bike. The ultimate in car and bike friendly travel.

  • Brilliant simple mounting system. The bike is held in place by both tyres and leans against a vertical support, giving a very solid and stable fitting. Straps secure the bike to the rack at these 3 points.

  • No fiddly, gimmicky bike clamps that could damage the paintwork or don't fit your bike.

  • Adjusts to fit your bike in seconds, adjusts for wheelbase, frame shape and bike widths.

  • Check your vehicle's nose weight – the combined weight of the rack and bikes must not exceed this, if towing this must be added to the trailer nose weight too. See below for rack weights.

  • Carry bikes at up to 15kg each, available in 1 or 2 Bike capacities.

  • Includes light unit.

  • Modular design makes it easy to strip down to component parts or leave partially assembled while not in use.

  • Also available with attachments for children's bikes and 3 inch tyres. Please enquire.

Due to the variation in shapes of vehicles and trailers or caravans we cannot guarantee that all combinations will be able to work together.

If you are unsure about whether it will work with your vehicle please contact us for advice.

We recommend before using the rack, fitting it and loading the bikes and then checking the clearance to the caravan/trailer on full lock and on an incline to make sure that the bikes cannot touch the trailer/caravan.

Behind the Ball Mounting – This option is to fit the 2 Bolt Type tow bar. The mounting block is sandwiched between the tow ball and the tow bar and becomes a permanent part of the assembly. The block should not affect the use of the tow ball. Choose the correct version to match whether you have single or double light sockets, we include a bracket for fitting them to the mounting block.

All higher racks use our Behind the Ball mounting because this is the only one that you can tow with. This is not suitable for anything other than Standard 2 bolt tow bars.

See our tow bar guide for more information on tow bar types.

Vehicles with external spare wheels may need extended support poles to suit the external spare wheel. Owners of vehicles with external spare wheels should contact us before ordering to determine the correct fitting for their vehicle.

Take a look at our garage mount for turning the rack into a home storage system.

Capacity Options: Available to fit 2 / 3 / 4 Bikes at up to 15 kg per bike.

Weights: 1 Bike – 9kg, 2 Bike – 13 kg.

Retractable Tow Bars - If using with a retractable swan neck tow bar, you may not be able to retract and stow the tow ball with the 'On the Ball' mounting block fitted.

The light unit is fitted with a 7 pin plug, we can supply a 13-7 Pin Adaptor for vehicles fitted with 13 pin sockets at extra cost.  Please contact us for more advice if you think you may require this item.

Note on use with motorhomes – We do not recommend using ‘On the Ball’ mounting racks with motorhomes. We recommend checking with the manufacturer of the tow bar as to the suitability for use with a ‘Behind the Ball’ bike rack.
