“Ride, paddle, explore: seek your adventure”
That philosophy was the intention of founders Jim and Jan Morris who saw an opportunity to create a better way to transport your bike back in the early 90’s. Swagman was one of the first companies worldwide to design and market a hitch style bike rack. Over the years, that small bike rack company based in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia grew to include numerous other ground breaking designs in the North American Bicycle, RV and Automobile markets.
The XTC Cross-Country 2-Bike Rack is designed to make it easy to carry two bikes securely on your car’s hitch with no risk of bike-on-car, or bike-on-bike damage. Thanks to a built-in anti-wobble device, the platform-style rack secures solidly to 2 or 1.25-inch hitches. To load the bikes, simply lift them into the wheel platforms, secure the wheels with the integrated wheel straps, and secure the grip arms over the frames. With push button ratcheting arms and sliding wheel platforms, the rack provides a custom fit for bikes with 20 to 29-inch wheels and can accommodate multiple frame types. The soft frame-friendly coating on the grip arms, ensures that your bikes’ finishes remain unmarred. In comparison to roof mounted bike racks that generally require you to remove the bike’s front wheel and hitch-mounted cradle carriers that don’t support the bikes from the base, the XTC Cross-Country is easy to use and worry free. Whether your rack is fully loaded or not in use, the rack provides ready access to your car’s trunk. The rack folds up for easy storage when not in use and the center arm folds down to allow access to the rear of vehicle without removing the rack. Built to last, the XTC Cross-Country 2-Bike Rack carries a limited lifetime warranty from Swagman.
Please note: an optional locking hitch pin and 10-millimeter security cable can be used with this rack and are sold separately.
