Softride 26248 Element

If you’re looking for a rack that will carry bikes for your family or friends, you’ve come to the right place.  This 4-bike rack conforms to any vehicle with a 2" or 1¼" trailer hitch.  The unique feature of this rack is its parallelogram design allowing it to fold down with the bikes on, providing unequaled rear vehicle access, usually only found in swing-away racks.  The arms on this rack also adjust to a narrow or wide stance to conform to different frame models as well as being able to fold down when not in use.
