Need a hitch rack that offers plenty of performance but leaves enough in the budget for dinner out after a great ride with friends? The Yakima RidgeBack tilting bike rack for 1-1/4” or 2” trailer hitches is the perfect blend of value, function, and convenience. With 3 different models to carry up to 5 bicycles, the RidgeBack bike mount’s SpeedKnob tool-free installation connects the rack securely in the receiver hitch and locks the rack to the vehicle. A new UpperHand lever provides one-handed tilting for rear door or hatchback access and folding flat for simple storage, while ZipStrips straps clamp bikes speedily and snugly and anti-sway cradles prevent bikes from coming into contact. Bikes can be locked to the carrier with the inclusion of a Yakima HandCuff cable lock(sold separately, see below), and beverages can be opened thanks to the built-in bottle opener (beverages sold separately).
