The premium Thule 9025 Apex 4 bike and Thule 9026 Apex 5 bike hitch rack are Thule Racks most advanced hitch bike racks -- the Apex series. Beginning with super strong, lightweight construction and an integrated handle for easy lifting and carrying to and from your vehicle, the Thule Apex 4 and 5 bike rack installs quickly and securely into the receiver hitch. The revolutionary, advanced arc design of the bike arms provides easier bike loading / unloading as well as better ground clearance. The Hold Fast RDT (Road Dampening Technology) Cradles absorb the shock of the road for smooth transport and full bicycle protection while the patented No-Sway Cages prevent bike to bike contact or swinging into the vehicle. The integrated cable lock & key secures all bikes to the carrier while the included Locking Knob and Snug-Tite Receiver lock virtually eliminates wobble and locks the Apex 4 bike hitch rack into the receiver. The patented Hitch Switch lever allows the bike rack arms to fold down fully when not in use, allowing for garage access, parallel parking etc. Hitch Switch lever also enables the entire rack to tilt down out of the way for easy access to rear of the vehicle (with bikes unloaded).
  • Easily holds up to four bikes and fits both 2" and 1-1/4" trailer hitch receivers
  • Proprietary Hold Fast RDT (Road Dampening Technology) Cradles absorb the shock of the road while driving, protecting the bicycles and ensuring smooth travel
  • Patented Thule Racks No-Sway Cages prevent bike to bike contact or swinging into the vehicle

  • Compatible with virtually all bike sizes, styles and shapes. Please note: Thule 982XT Top Tube Frame Adaptor (sold separately) is required for bikes with unconventional frames, including certain kid's, women's, freeride/downhill mountain bikes and bmx bikes

Traffic Ticket Alert
July 12, 2017
New York State is giving out $200 tickets to users of this hitch, as the vertical column is very wide and obscures the rear license plate. Additional comments: much improved mechanisms but almost as heavy as the older 4 -bike models like Parkway, and it's impossible to get 4 bikes onto the 4 bike rack without using bungee cords and not the cradles. All in all, a waste of $400 to just upgrade from whatever you already have. A big disappointment.
Pros:
mechanism to lock rack to hitch. Aesthetically pleasing (but who cares)
Cons:
all else.
