Designed To Carry E-Bikes
Future-proofed modern design and unbeatable value.
E-HORNET series offer convenient mounting, user-friendly functions, heavy duty construction for carrying e-bikes. The large wheel supports allow stable mounting of all tires up to 4″. The locking clamp is the perfect solution to attach the bike frame. Simple design, strong and durable at a great price.
The HORNET 2 is a really well designed, simple and strong e-bike carrier; ease-to-use and very good value for your money.
Fitting to the car: When you first place the bike rack on the tow ball it supports itself – you can let go of it and it won’t fall to the ground. You’ll then take the weight again, spin the knob until it’s tight, and lock it.
Holding the bike: Simply position the bike on the wheel supports. Adjust the clamp position by sliding it around the vertical tubular frame to find the perfect fit with the bike frame. Clamp the frame, attach the wheels using the ratchet straps, lock the clamps.
Tilting: Tilting is easy, and is very well balanced even with a full load. The HORNET 2 sits quite high on the tow ball, and the tilt function is optimised to prevent the lights from hitting the road surface, while still using the weight of the bikes to help bring the bike platform back to the level again in a controlled way.
