Glide. Ride. Repeat.

Grocery-getter. Luggage machine. Move master. Whatever nickname your vehicle has, chances are you picked a car with all that storage space for a reason. And now you can add the Glide EX 5-bike hitch rack to the hauling equation without compromising your vehicle’s functionality.

Simply push the trigger to release the rack, glide away and boom – hatch access. When you’re done the same amount of (non) effort glides the rack upright and you’re good to go. It’s the same one-button, one-step, one-motion movement for when the hitch rack is fully loaded and when it’s not.

Plus, the Glide EX is decked out with our low-profile bike hold downs and best-in-class ratchet straps. These hold downs carefully cradle your bike and can be easily adjusted to fit a wide range of bicycles. Once bikes are loaded, our ratchet straps snugly and speedily fasten your bike to the rack so you can get where you need to be.

The result, a bike carrier that’s ready for any outing on a moment’s notice.

Also available in a 4-Bike version
