Protection

There really is only one way to carry bikes and be sure of protecting your car.

Tow bar mounted bike racks provide a solution that really works!

MaxxRaxx cycle carriers are designed to prevent any damage occurring to either the car or your bikes. The bikes are held clear of your vehicle and the rack’s top-beam is the ideal height for loading your bikes. Our unique design includes a special Cycle Cradle for each bike, ensuring they are kept apart whilst the ratchet strap holds them firmly in place to prevent any movement.

Don't risk scratching your car's paintwork!
Finally, a way to carry bikes and be sure to protect your car!

Cycle carriers that are mounted onto the back of your car can easily damage your car and/or your bikes. Since the rack and bikes rest on the car, it is almost impossible to prevent some damage from occurring. Roof mounted racks may therefore seem like the sensible choice. They certainly keep the bike away from the car bodywork; however it soon becomes clear that they too present some difficulties. For many, it is just not possible to lift a full size bike all the way up onto the roof of a modern family car and even if it is possible, there is always the risk of slipping and doing serious damage to the car whilst struggling to lift the bikes up or down from the roof or while trying to fix them in place.

Unique Design
Unique patented Cycle Cradles and powerful ratchet strapping

Your bikes are strapped down quickly and held in a firm grip.

The MaxxRaxx cycle carriers use our unique, specially designed and patented cradles, one for each bike. These allow us to use a strong and simple ratchet system (similar to that used on lorries to secure large loads) to hold the crossbar of each bike firmly onto their individual cradle. The system is quick and easy to use whilst being extremely effective in gripping your bikes, preventing any movement whilst the vehicle is in motion.

Not only can you load and unload your bikes in minutes, but you can also relax knowing that they are completely secure on the rack while you are driving.

Strong

How strong is a MaxxRaxx cycle carrier? - the answer is simple...VERY!

All MaxxRaxx cycle carriers are manufactured from structural steel for maximum strength. Compared with many bike racks on the market today, which are made from thin walled steel or aluminium tubing, MaxxRaxx cycle carriers are extremely robust. In addition our bike racks are specially treated against rust and then powder coated to ensure optimum durability. Not only can you carry a full load of adult bikes, your MaxxRaxx cycle rack will also look great throughout the many years of use you will have from it.

We give a full 5-year guarantee with all our racks.

How many bikes can I carry?

Every MaxxRaxx cycle carrier is seriously strong. Solid British engineering means that you can carry up to 5 bikes with one of our cycle racks. However, the strength of the mounting points of the tow bar may restrict the number of bikes you can carry on your specific car. How many bikes can my vehicle carry?

Most vehicles can carry 4 bikes easily. A few smaller cars may be limited to just 2 or 3 bikes. However, on some rugged vehicles such as certain 4x4s and SUVs, you will be able to carry up to 5 adult bikes. Towing and carrying bikes at the same time may also limit the number of bikes you can carry.

You should not exceed the recommended Nose Weight Rating of your vehicle. This could limit the number of bikes you are able to carry, especially if you will be towing at the same time.

Versatile

Easy boot access
No need to remove your bikes
  • Have you ever arrived at the ferry but your passport was in the boot?
  • Been on a long journey and the children wanted their toys?
  • Taken your dogs with you but they needed to get out for a walk - or more?

With most cycle carriers these problems would all be a nightmare but not so with the MaxxRaxx bike rack. It tilts, even when loaded, to allow full access to the rear hatch or boot of your vehicle.

Even with a 4x4, when the rack is tilted the rear door can be opened up to 60 degrees providing easy access for the shopping, kids and dogs.

Tow and Carry

Planning a holiday with both your bikes and caravan?

The MaxxRaxx cycle carrier gives you touring with flexibility and choice. Apart from our EasyFixx range of bike racks which mount directly on to the ball of your tow bar, all our other bike racks leave your tow ball free, allowing you to carry your bikes and tow your caravan or trailer, at the same time.

There is a Towing Height Extension available to lift your bikes an additional 300mm to clear the jockey wheel handle, gas bottles etc. If you use an AL-KO stabiliser all our 2 bolt flange racks come with an AL-KO compatible Foot Plate to ensure adequate clearance when turning. Please contact MaxxRaxx for further information.

Every combination of vehicle and caravan/trailer is different. This PDF document gives guidance about the clearance needed and how many bikes will fit in the space between vehicle and caravan for each of our racks.

MaxxRaxx is unable to guarantee the compatibility of their products to specific vehicle and caravan/trailer combinations. Ultimately it is a matter for the user to consider the product, its design features and space available and decide whether or not it is suitable for their individual requirements.

Please go to our TOW & CARRY section for more detailed advice about towing a caravan or trailer at the same time as using a bike rack.

Remember, your bikes are not insured if they are not locked
  • With the MaxxRaxx cycle rack, not only are your bikes locked to our bike rack with a built-in security cable, the rack is also locked to the tow bar
  • The MaxxRaxx bike rack even comes complete with 2 padlocks and spare keys for added security
