RockyMounts has announced the release of the SplitRail Hitch Mount Rack.
The SplitRail is a lightweight, expandable platform hitch rack for carrying two, three or four bicycles.
Made of 6063 aluminum and chromoly steel, the SplitRail weighs a category-leading 44 pounds and features adjustable trays to allow optimal fit between loaded bikes.
"At RockyMounts, we’re cyclists who love to ride and we’re passionate about getting our bikes to the next adventure," said President Bruno Maier. "We’re driven to improve the user experience and provide exceptional quality and value. The SplitRail is the latest result of that drive."
The SplitRail uses a ratcheting arm to secure bikes without frame contact. The system works with almost any bike, including those with non-traditional frames. It accommodates bikes with wheel diameters between 20 and 29 inches, and tire widths of up to 3.2 inches.
The SplitRail’s bike trays can be laterally offset by four inches to avoid seat and handlebar interference, and it comes with an integrated cable lock system that allows each bike to be locked individually. A locking hitch pin (included) keeps the rack itself secured to the vehicle. It also features a wall mount for convenient home storage.
"The SplitRail is efficient to load, and at 44 pounds, it’s easy to install and put away. But the key feature, for the 2-inch receiver version, is the versatility gained by the single bike add-on trays," remarked Maier.
Available for both 2- and 1.25-inch receivers, the SplitRail features RockyMounts’ proprietary anti-wobble system for a tight rack-to-receiver fit.
