The Rola lightweight hitch mount NV2 Bike Carrier features adjustable cradles that slide to fit bikes of all sizes. The NV2 system can carry up to two bikes and its lightweight aluminum support arms utilize multiple pivot points allowing it to stow upright for travel, extend outward to load bikes and fold flat for rear cargo access. Since the NV2 transports bikes by the wheels, it will fit various frame styles and comes with protective foam pads to protect the bike’s frame and rims. Fits both 1 1/4- and 2-inch receivers.

The Yakima QuickBack 2 trunk carrier has a two-bike capacity and is compatible with most hatchbacks and SUVs.

Additional features include premium padded feet and steel-reinforced straps with coated padded metal buckles designed to keep everything secure and, most of all, protect your vehicle’s paint. As an added bonus, there is an integrated bottle opener for that celebratory drink after a long day’s ride.
