Sleek and stylish the Thule Vertex2 9028XT has New Hold Fast anti-sway cradles that grip your bike frame at three different points - twice along the top bar and once along a downward bar, such as a seat post. This third point of contact created with Thule's No-Sway Cage prevents unwanted sway, front-to-back movement and bike-to-bike contact. The cushioned cradles include reinforced rubber straps to secure the bikes in place. The cradles also include advanced grooves that accommodate bike cables.

The arching dual arms of the rack are staggered so that the bikes hang at varying heights to prevent pedals and handlebars from hitting each during transport while the upright bar - or mast - of the rack is taller than standard hitch-mounted racks and is arced slightly to offer your bikes greater clearance from both the ground and the back of your vehicle.

The Vertex2 includes ergonomic levers (HitchSwitches) that enable you to fold the rack in two places. The rack body tilts forward to allow easy access to your vehicle's rear cargo area, and arms can be folded down for storage. Also, the handles audibly click to reassure you that the arms and mast are locked in place. The Vertex comes with an anti-rattle device incorporated into the shank to reduce vibration and noise in the hitch for a smooth, quiet ride.
