Description

The Softride element bike rack is offering more value and versatility than other bike racks on the market. These bike racks are simply amazing, offering the patented parallelogram design which allows the rack to un-fold with bikes intact. The Element bike rack is made out of high grade steel which is coated with a thick layer of powder coat paint. The gray powder coat helps to ward off corrosion and looks great next to any color scheme out there. A spring loaded pin allows for easy up and down maneuverability and does not interfere with the rear hatch of your van or suv.

The Softride Access Element bike rack is available for both 1 ¼" and 2" receiver hitches and features QuiteRide technology. This technology prevents rattling caused by loose fitting carriers and mounts onto your receiver hitch. Element bike racks are designed to easily carry 4 children or adult bikes and can withstand up to 120 lbs.

If you're looking for a durable and long lasting rack, you're in the right place! Softride has literally thought of everything, from the parallelogram design, all the way up to the end of arm safety reflectors. With all these functional features, rest assure, your bikes will make it from destination to destination unharmed.

The hitch was very easy to install. Once the hitch bolt was tightened, there was absolutely no movement in the bike rack. There was still no movement after the trip from Pittsburgh to Hilton Head and back, approx. 1500 miles on the highway. The fact that it is able to be lowered with four bikes is great. Raising it was not difficult for me, but would be rather difficult for my wife. It also comes with a hitch lock and a cable lock for the bikes which is also a money saver. All in all, we are very pleased with the purchase.

The best hitch-mounted bike rack I've ever used. Very solid construction and mounts securely to the receiver. Does not sway or move around even with 4 adult bikes and twisty mountain passes. Fold down feature is easy to use and offers quick access to cargo area without unloading the bikes. Retractable security cable is a great addition and allows an uncluttered way of securing the bikes over night or whenever you can't keep an eye on them. A little more expensive than some other racks but well worth it the first time you use it. I would recommend it to anyone.

This works great and does the job better than i expected. The bikes are held securely and hardly rattles. I recommend this to anyone that takes their bikes with them wherever they go like I do.
