The PILOT 4X4 is a platform style trunk rack specifically designed to fit SUV spare tyre mounting plates.
Safely fits 2 bikes without having them moving or touching each other which prevents scratches to the bikes.
The geometry of the PILOT 4X4 frame allows a quick and easy installation on most SUV's.
The low profile frame makes it easier to load the bikes.
Solidly built of steel and high impact resistant plastic materials.
The geometry keeps the bikes away from the car.
3 adapters included to fit tyres from 175 - 315
3 mounting positions, left-centre-right for offset tyres
Using the pins, you can fold or unfold the rack in no time.
The clamps are big enough to fit most bike frames and can be moved to almost any position on the main frame for a multitude of fixing positions.
They clamps are made of reinforced Nylon, highly resistant to wear & harmful UV.
An integrated pad prevents scratching the bike paint and allows most brake cables to go through.
Each clamp is equipped with a locking knob.
The wheel holders will accommodate all wheelbases, even very small children’s bikes and long 29ers.
The straps allow a secure attachment of the wheels and the pads protect the rims.
The straps are long enough to hold the biggest rims.

Mounting: The mounting plate (see photo) can be turned 90 or 180 degrees for vehicles with different stud configurations. Otherwise a different pattern plate can be custom built by our engineer.
Distance of studs (in photo) is approx 117 mm centre to centre across the top 2.
The bottom of the frame of the rack is approx 400mm below the centre of the mounting plate. The wheel holders hang down approx 75mm more.
