Pivoting Arms with Ratcheting Hooks

 ratcheting wheel hooks

The Curt platform rack has ratcheting hooks that grab your bikes firmly by the front wheel, so it won't scratch or scuff the paint. To load a bike, simply place your front wheel in the cradle, rotate the arm up and over the wheel, and press down firmly on the ratcheting hook. To unload your bike, press the button on the upright arm to release the ratcheting hook, and slide the hook up.

Sliding Ratchet Straps

 sliding wheel trays

The wheel trays have cradles with ratcheting straps to secure your rear wheel to the rack. The cradles slide along the tray to accommodate bikes with a variety of wheelbases. To secure your wheel, run the strap over the rim and back down through the strap buckle and pull tight. To remove your bike, press the quick-release button on the buckle and undo the strap.

Front-Mounted Lever for Easy Tilting and Folding

 folding and tiliting design cable locks

The rack tilts down with your bikes loaded. So, whether you're at the trail or the grocery store, you don't have to remove your bikes to access your cargo area. It also folds up when not in use. This leaves a smaller footprint, so you can keep the rack on your vehicle to park in your garage. And if you want to remove it, it doesn't take up as much space to store it.

 folding and tiliting design

To make tilting and folding easier, the Stage 2's release lever is mounted on the front of the rack. This means you won't have to reach through or around your bikes with one hand to reach the lever, while supporting the rack's weight with the other, when lowering the rack. Instead, you'll be able to hold the rack with both hands the entire time.

Tool-Free Installation with Anti-Rattle Device

 cable locksCurt 2-Bike Carrier

The rack quickly installs in your hitch receiver, without the need for tools. Just slide the shank into your hitch and turn the knob until snug. Turning the knob deploys an anti-rattle wedge in the shank to help take play out of the hitch connection.

Complete Security

 loaded on vehicle

The rack includes locks to secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle. Integrated cable locks thread around your bikes' frames and insert into the lock at the top of each arm. The cables store inside the arms when not in use. The lock on the hand knob secures the rack to your vehicle. The hand knob will spin freely when locked so a would-be thief can't operate it. The locks are keyed alike, so you only need to use 1 key.

Awesome rack. We use it for our two Aventon Adventure 2 eBikes. No wobble. Excellent quality, very heavy duty.
Kimberly D. at etrailer was incredible


We haul 2 electric bikes with fat tires. They fit on the rack perfectly. Very sturdy rack; anti rattle feature prevents rack from wiggling & bouncing in the receiver - this is a great feature; bike tie downs are very effective & simple to use; tilting & stowage is a great feature. We highly recommend this bike rack.

Still using the Curt bike rack & working perfectly. Great product.


The bike rack came as the day it was projected. The assembly was easy and the rack appears to be more than satisfactory. I do intend to add another ratchet strap for added stability as I travel the interstate speeds.


We bought two e-bikes and needed a bike rack that could handle them. Right from the beginning I was impressed with etrailer. Great product description, great videos and prices were competitive with other companies. We purchased the Curt rack on 9/6/23 and the delivery date was scheduled for 9/11/23. We were pleasantly surprised when the rack arrived on 9/9/23. We assembled it today and plan on using it next weekend. Assembly was easy.


Awesome rack - very easy to assemble. I like the security features like the locking cables and locking hitch connection. Looks like a really sturdy rack for our e-bikes. Quick shipping - I’ve ordered several items from e-trailer, and always had great service.


Very good e-bike rack platform I had to add a ramp as I could not mount the e-bikes alone ( e-bikes were 64lbs each)


This heavy duty bike rack is great. Holds my two 60 pound E bikes. That’s a total of 120 pounds. No problem at all. Very sturdy. Not to mention etrailer sent this out immediately.tracking was was perfect. Thanks etrailer for a very good.experience.


Great addition to loading the SUP boards and now adding the e-bike platform to extend the day trips! Extra weight and 4"tire rack is an industry must! Easy to install and set up. Plenty of room for the tail gate access!


Great bike rack put together under an hour.. only wish the arms were easier to adjust.


Simple assembly, easy to use, extremely effective and strong design. We LOVE it!


Great product! Made extremely well and everything was thought out to make bike carrying and loading are a breeze.



Exceptionally well, paint is as good as the day I unboxed it and the bike rack showing no sign of flaws, I am happy to say.


The rack was delivered a couple of days early and it works great.


Well engineered! Easy to assembled and works very well our e-bikes.


So far so good. Heavy duty , easy to assemble, Can't wait to try it.


I have ordered several different things from etrailer and they have always been on top of their game


A year later and it still looks new. This is easy to get on and off the car and the bikes are easy to load and unload. Highly Recommend!


Heavy duty.


With the great help I received I decided to purchase the curt ebike rack. The rack arrived 2 days early! What service! Very easy to assemble, extra heavy duty construction, and works perfectly. I would highly recommend etrailer and Curt products.


Used it for the first trip this week. Had a nine-hour drive with an e-bike and a Trek. Held the bikes very well and able to put the bikes on in a couple of minutes. Definitely recommend.


Easy assembly, sturdy smartly built. Looking forward to summer vacations.

  • 2021 Entegra Aspire Brake Controller Connection
    Great selection of the Prodigy P3 # 90195 brake controller - definitely one of my favorites due to ease of use! According to my research your 2021 Entegra Aspire is built on a Spartan chassis. While I imagine there are some wires either up under the dash near the steering column or underneath the driver's seat, there hasn't been any information released about a brake controller plug so you'll likely have to hardwire it in. If you reach out to Entegra with your VIN they should be able...

  • Curt E-Bike Rack Compared to Yakima Holdup Bike Rack
    I am assuming you meant Yakima Holdup part # Y02443 as there isn't a Standup bike rack they offer. This is a pretty similar bike rack to the Curt E-Bike Rack part # C89JR in a few ways as they are both platform racks that use wheel mounts to secure the bikes. The Curt has a 65 lb per bike capacity whereas the Yakima has a 60 lb per bike capacity. The Curt is geared more for carrying e-bikes, or at least that's how it's marketed, but e-bikes almost always have front fenders which would interfere...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Carrying 2 Lectric E-Bikes
    The bike racks that have ramp setups to make loading easier aren't the most budget friendly, but if you can't lift the bikes at all it would be money well spent. The Thule Easy Fold XT part # TH903202 is a really great option that I would recommend highly for e-bikes like your Lectric XP 2.0. This rack has a ramp that pulls out to make loading/unloading easier, comes with locks, and has frame clamps that were designed for the often alternative frame styles of e-bikes. It has rise built...

  • Will 2022 Honda Pilot etrailer Hitch Fit With Hands-Free Liftgate Function?
    It is possible that the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98840 will affect the lift-gate sensors on your 2022 Honda Pilot, but we haven't heard anything about this completely voiding their use. Best case scenario is that you'll be able to get the sensor to work by kicking to either side of the receiver, worst case scenario is needing to pick up a sensor relocator kit from your local Honda dealer. This will be the case with any trailer hitch for your vehicle. If you don't already have...

  • Electric Bike Rack Rated for Use on a Motorhome and Flat Tow
    I do have a great option for you. But the reason you are seeing some that are ok for use on RV's and/or flat towed vehicles is because each style provides its own set of challenges on the bike rack. So you may find a rack that is ok for a motorhome that is not ok for flat towing. That basically means that the rack was tested for the motorhome and passed the test to be recommended for that. The same rack may have been tested for flat towing and the different circumstances that come with...

  • Recommended Bike Carrier For A Hey Bike E-Bike With Fenders
    The Curt Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bike # C89JR will actually not work with your Hey Bike rack as it will interfere with your fenders. Instead, I recommend checking out the Lets Go Aero V-Lectric FAT PRO Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # LGA77FR. This bike rack has plenty of capacity, boasting 75-lbs per bike for a total of 150-lbs, is compatible with bikes with fenders, and can accommodate a maximum tire width of 4.5". Attached is a product review video for you to check out as well.

  • Why Can't Curt Bike Rack C89JR Be Used at Rear of Fifth Wheel Trailer
    At the rear of a trailer the ride quality is much rougher than at the rear of a vehicle due to the less sophisticated suspension and the very long distance from the axle and the rear of the trailer which exaggerates the movements. The most similar two bike platform rack that is rated for use at the rear of a fifth wheel is the Hollywood Racks RV Rider part # HLY64FR which has been reinforced for it.

  • Will the Curt Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes Work with Full Fender Bikes or What Rack Will Work
    No, the Curt Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # C89JR will not work for your 2 e-bikes with fenders and there is no add on for this rack if you decide to add a 3rd bike. We have a couple bike rack options to carry 2 e-bikes with full fenders, but we do not have any great options to carry 3 e-bikes that have full fenders. If your e-bikes are not a step-thru model you can use the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # HLY84FR which uses a frame mount style and will...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Two Electra 2.0XP Step Thru Bikes
    I have a great bike rack that will work with your Electra 2.0XP step thru bikes but you don't want to use the Curt Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes item # C89JR because it will damage your fenders. Instead, I recommend the Swagman E-Spec Bike Rack item # S94FR. It has a weight capacity of 70 lbs per bike and is rated for use on all motor vehicles, fifth wheels, motorhomes, travel trailers, and flat towed vehicles. This is a frame mounted bike rack that completely avoids your Electra's fenders....

  • Can a Kuat Hitch Bike Rack Be Used On a Bike with Fenders
    The general rule for hitch mounted bike racks is that you cannot use a wheel mount style bike rack on a bike with fenders. Therefore; the Kuat Piston, Kuat NV 2.0, Kuat Sherpa 2.0, and Kuat Transfer V2 are all incompatible. The reason for this is that in order to secure the wheel hook on the tire, you'd need to do so in front of the fender and this would not offer enough hold for the bikes increasing the chances for the hook to come loose and the bikes to fall. If you are looking for a...

  • What Bike Rack do You Recommend for 2 E-Bikes on a 5th-Wheel Trailer?
    When it comes to a bike rack that is compatible with a 5th-wheel trailer, it all depends on how the rack is manufactured. Since there is increased torque and force exerted at the rear of a 5th-wheel trailer, bike rack manufacturers take this into account in the rack's design. Sometimes the pictures of the racks can be misleading when trying to figure out which rack to choose. Even though I am not sure what Thule bike rack you were looking at, but it looks like you were looking at the...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver and Bike Rack for a 2010 Chrysler Sebring Convertible
    You'll need a couple things to tow, the first of which is a hitch. For the 2010 Chrysler Sebring, the Draw-Tite Class I Sport Frame, part # 24871 is a confirmed fit. It has a no-drill installation process, so it should be easy for you to install. I've included a video of it being installed on a 2008 Chrysler Sebring soft top convertible, so you can get an idea of the installation process. If you're going to be towing a trailer with the Sebring then you'll need trailer wiring as well....

  • Best Mid-Range Platform Wheel Mount Bike Rack with Locks
    The RockyMounts MonoRail # RKY10004 is a solid choice for a bike rack and I'd go with it over the Curt Bike Rack # C89JR (the same as 18088) any day of the week. Curt isn't a huge bike rack manufacturer so I'm not very confident in their recreational products to be honest - when it comes to towing though, Curt is right at the top with others. In regards to bikes wobbling this shouldn't be the case if they were installed properly. You might see the bike rack wobble some during travel but...
