Description

When mounted securely to your 50mm towbar hitch, the Shingleback Vertical Bike Rack is perfect for shuttling your MTB crew or for taking your whole family’s bikes on holiday. It’s easy to remove when not in use, and because the front wheel rests in a cradle it’s a safe option for carrying full-suspension mountain bikes with angled top tubes.

Only the rubber tyres have contact with the rack which means you can stop worrying about damaging your paint, carbon frame or components.

Fits 20″ kids MTBs up to 29″ full-sized MTBs (with 1.8″-3″ tyres) with no fiddly rack adjustments.

The bike rack can be quickly removed from your car and stored on the optional Shingleback Rack Trolley Stand, where it actually saves you space as a garage bike storage solution.

The optional Shingleback Swing Arm allows quick access to virtually every type of vehicle boot or tailgate while fully loaded with your bikes.

Expert welding workmanship guarantees weld strength and adds to the build quality that our customers expect.

Clever yet simple design virtually eliminates all slop in your 50mm tow hitch for secure and rattle free use.

High quality, super tough steel with a scratch resistant powder coated finish means your rack will look good for years to come.

Guaranteed for 10 years to original purchaser.

2 reviews for Shingleback Vertical Rack – 6 Bike

  1. Tim Hall

    Great product works perfectly as we have 4 kids it was hard finding a rack that had 6 bikes

  2. Kerry L.

    Our young lads have chosen their main sport as Mountain Biking. Be it shuttling them on weekends in NE Vic or around the country when they have been competing elsewhere, the shingleback has been great, it’s given us so much more space in the ute.

    We previously put the bikes in the tub of our ute with a shuttle pad and packed our gear around the bikes. Now with the shingleback it has given us that space back and we can keep everything secure and weatherproof again.

    The shingleback is so easy to attach to the tow bar and release when we get back home. It is engineered well and does not sway, even with a full load of bikes. Even on rough shuttle roads I feel the bikes are very secure. The bungee straps make it a breeze for all of us to secure the bikes in the rack easily and get them off quickly to hit the trails.

    Whether it be a run shuttling the boys locally or a long haul trip away, the shingleback has been the best choice for us to easily and securely transport our Mountain Bikes around Australia. This is hands down the best rack on the market and I highly recommend it! Great customer service and down to earth support.
