Product Details

Torpedo7 engineers have come up with another winning transport solution with the innovative Torpedo7 Tilting Towball Mount 4 Bike Rack

The innovative tilt and fold design allows access to the vehicle's boot/hatch even with the cycles in place.

The Torpedo7 Tilting Towball Mount 4 Bike Rack rack easily accepts a variety of bike types or frame designs. You simply rest your bikes frame over the foam covered bars, and secure with the straps provided. It is however recommended to also use a bungee or bike inner tube to prevent the bikes from swinging when driving.
 
The thick high density foam-rubber coating the racks tubing prevents wearing or damage to your bikes finish when in use. The large diameter of the foam prevents damage from pressure spots for when carrying light-weight aluminium or carbon fibre frames.
 
The upright tube fastens to 50mm (2") tow-balls and secures with the supplied spanner and lockable adjustment dial.

Features:

  • Folds down for boot/hatch access
  • Top arm folds down when not in use
  • Easy on and off fitting

While this rack is suitable for carrying 4 bikes - you need to be practical when loading it up, to limit possible damage to your bikes, as well as damaging the rack or your car.

  • Not available
    Without checking, I darted towards Albany branch purposely to buy the product. I was told that only three branches have it and the closest is the Mt Wellington. I rang the store only to be told that they don’t have it. PATHETIC! It’s good I did not drive there. It was $150 but now $170+ & the website says Mt Wellington has it. I wonder what the store says if I’ll ask availability:(

  • Never available when on sale and unable to back order.
    I have tried to get this three times over the last 12 months and it is never available at any of the stores it says it has stock nor can it be put on back order. I'm sure it is a good product if it was ever in stock...

  • Highly recommended
    Brought two months ago and have used this bike rack with all shapes and sizes of bikes. It's been totally flawless. I recommend these racks if you intend to just leave it to live on the tow bar. As it is a solid hefty item. Loading up 4 bikes is no problem. Feels solid and rods are fairly long to fit all 4. I have a hatch and its perfect for loading up the car and being able to open the door to get items out. All worth the extra pennies to get this system.

  • Rock solid rack, slightly annoying mounting method
    This rack is absolutely rock solid once properly mounted. The straps supplied seem to be decent quality. The fold-down arms and the tilt mechanism are equally solid. Fitting the base plate takes all of two minutes, and once on it stays there permanently. So far, so good, and would get 5 stars except...

    The anti-rotation 'tab' that sticks up from the base plate makes it impossible to use a trailer, as it would interfere with the hitch. This is partially solved by the tab being held in place by a single bolt, so can be removed from the base plate quickly enough, but then you've got to keep the tab, bolt, washers together somewhere safe. So I've gone with 4 stars rather than 5 due to the fiddliness. Note to T7 - this could be solved by having the tab welded to the rack itself, and dropping into the slot on the base plate.

    As noted in an earlier comment by 29GT, if you drilled out the hole in the base plate to 50mm, so it can slip on and off over your tow ball (rather than be secured under it) and add a spacer to stop the base plate moving up and down when the rack is on, it would be much simpler. I haven't done this yet but can see it happening in the future.

    Of course, if you never use your tow ball for anything else then this is a non-issue. And as the only purpose of the base plate is to stop the rack rotating - probably not a common problem - it could possibly just be left off altogether.

  • Definitely recommend
    the best feature about this product, I can access my boot freely, of course once I've tilted the rack back. After using a friends rack (this model too) I've wanted one mainly so I can access equipment in my boot and the fact that I can carry more that one bike. Takes a bit of work to assemble onto towall, but once you do it enough times it's fine. Def wouldn't have a different rack other than this one.

  • almost perfect
    Great Rack - works well on my sedan - i used to have an extension - but this rack being closer feels much better when driving on the car fully loaded

  • Great rack for the price
    I got one of these during the New Year specials and am very happy. Only points to note are:
    1. Tilting the rack with the bikes on is a two person job as you'll need one person to unscrew the bolt and the other to take the weight of the bikes.
    2. I had to get a new tow ball as the height of the ball was too short i.e.where the ball part ends there is a small shank before it widens out again and mounts to the vehicle. Mine was about 12mm and it needs to be at least 15mm for it to clamp effectively. New tow balls can be purchased for $20.
    3. The rack comes with a plate that needs to be fitted under your tow ball which means if you use the rack on different cars you'll have to take the plate off and put it on the other car you intend to use.
