Swagman Semi 2.0 2-Bike Carrier

The Semi 2.0 lets you carry 2 bikes on the back of your vehicle. It has padded, ratcheting hooks and long wheel cradles with sliding, ratcheting straps so you can carry 2 bikes regardless of size, frame design, or suspension or brake style. An integrated lever lets you tilt the rack down for cargo access or fold it up for storage, and its low loading height reduces the strain of mounting your bikes for transport. It also has a locking system that secures your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle.


Pivoting Upright Arms With Ratcheting Hooks

Padded Locking Hooks

The pivoting upright arms have ratcheting hooks that grab your bikes firmly by the front wheels - not the frames. These hooks allow you to rapidly load and unload your bikes, and they won't scratch or scuff your bike paint. Each arm has an integrated cable lock that secures the bikes to the rack.


Swagman Semi 4.0 2-Bike Carrier

You can fold down the upright arms when no bikes are on the rack for convenient access to your vehicle's rear cargo area.


Long Wheel Cradles with Sliding, Ratcheting Straps

Adjustable Wheel Trays

The extra-long rear cradles accommodate most bike lengths. Simply slide each strap to where the wheel meets the cradle then ratchet them tight to secure the bikes rear wheels to the rack. Each strap has an integrated chock that prevents the rear wheel from rotating while on the rack.


Convenient Cargo Area Access and Storage

Fold Forward

A spring-loaded lever in the base lets you tilt the rack - with bikes loaded - for access to your vehicle's rear cargo area.


Fold Up For Storage

When you're not carrying bikes you can use this same lever to fold the rack up against the rear of your vehicle.


Locking System

Threaded Locking Hitch Pin

Integrated locking cables inside the pivoting arms secure your bikes to the rack.


Threaded Locking Hitch Pin

The locking, threaded hitch pin secures the rack to your hitch receiver and also serves as an anti-wobble device to eliminate rattling in the receiver.

Excellent customer service, priceless over-the-phone reviews of different bike rack options, eventually picked what was the best option. We have an Arctic Fox truck camper in our truck bed and I wanted the bike rack to be attached to the front of the truck using a front hitch receiver that I installed on our Chevy truck (I don’t understand why more people don’t carry their bikes this way!). Have now travelled over 5000 mi throughout the western US with our 2 mountain bikes secured onto this front bike carrier. Concerns were: would the bikes obstruct the view of the driver, would the bikes ride securely over some rough roads, would the bug splatter be a big issue and would driving at night be a problem? Answers: if we lower the bike seat(s) I have absolutely no visibility issues (I almost forget the bikes are there); the bikes ride very well on this rack with no worries re bounciness or instability; the bugs are a bit of an issue but my wife has never complained about it and it doesn’t bother me (you can hose off the bikes occasionally if you like); we have only driven at night once and I’ll try not to do that again due to some decreased visibility (bikes partially obstruct the headlights) and reflective glare from the bikes. But I could not be happier with the set up. Had an issue with 1 of the swing arms shortly after I assembled the rack (possibly operator error) and they immediately sent a replacement arm with no questions asked (which was no small item). I was extremely happy with their response to the issue and everything has been great since then. Can’t wait to back out on the road this spring.

Still working as advertised Great product. Would buy it again.
John - 02/25/2020

Extremely satisfied with the Swagman Semi 2.0 rack. Purchased from etrailer on 2/2017, reviewing in 4/2020 - so after 3 years of ownership/use. Have used on Chevy Silverado, Tahoe, and Jeep Wrangler JLUR. You will need a hitch extender, preferably one with drop, for best results with a Wrangler. etrailer sells several that will work.

Only issues: the pivot where the arm that secures the bikes mounts to the frame froze up and broke on one arm last year. I called Swagman hoping to buy a replacement part, as the rack was over 2 years old. I did not expect it to be covered under warranty, and that was fine. However, Swagman sent me out the replacement parts for free with no hesitation. Their customer service was exceptional and they went over and above to make sure I continued to be happy with the product. I have occasionally sprayed those pivots with lubricating oil to hopefully prevent that happening in the future.

I have also called Swagman to buy replacement/additional keys for the locking hitch pin & integrated cable locks. The prices were reasonable and they sent them out quickly. One tip: write down (or photograph) the key code, the numbers on all the locks & keys, and save in a secure place, as you will need those numbers to get a replacement key.

I have only left bikes on the rack overnight a couple of times when I had no other option - the cable lock is not going to stop a determined thief, but it is better than nothing and will probably prevent a crime of opportunity.

I've used this rack with road, MTB, gravel, and even 20" kids bikes. (16" kids bike will not fit but a 20" will.) It has traveled tens of thousands of miles over the last 3+ years hauling bikes. I would recommend this rack without hesitation, and feel it is a great value compared to other equivalent racks which cost more.

Bought this Swagman Semi 2 with a Drawtite hitch for my Mk6 VW GTI. I had many concerns over buying a hitch bike rack, like: Dragging the ground when turning up my steep driveway (my mudflaps regularly scrape), Hitting the car when folded up, Being long enough to accommodate an XL trail bike, having integrated bike locks for ease of security, and being well built to last possibly years.

I am very happy to say that this rack fits ALL of those concerns so far. The build and install was easy. One note not mentioned in the instructions, make sure to install the rear wheel tray on the correct side so the belt latch faces rearward for ease of buckling them!
When installed on my 1-1/4” hitch, it is very tight and secure. Tilt away feature gives plenty of room for hatch access, and fold up feature does not hit my bumper with no modifications. The hitch lock cover is a little cheap but gets the job done.
One thing I don’t like about these style racks is there is no retention method for the wheel clamps when folded up. What this means is when folded up the clamps/posts can rotate forward and rub your bumper. To solve this I wrapped a bungee cord around them and the rack to keep them tightly held down (ref. pictures).
Currently my dad and I are still rocking the old family heirlooms so the long bike tray hasn't been fully tested but I have full confidence it will work.
One possible complaint is that the rack will be heavy, and definitely a two person effort to remove/install gracefully.

This rack is very well built and worth the extra $ over competitors. I look forward to commenting on this review with a long term review!



by:

I’m extremely satisfied with the Swagman Semi 2.0 rack that I purchased from etrailer. The service and follow up has been great as well. When I shopped for a rack I wanted one that I could use on the 2” receiver on a motor home and the 1 ¼” receiver on the vehicle I tow as well as my wife’s Suburu. This rack fits the bill. I appreciate the free shipping from etrailer which makes using them very price competitive.



by:

I really appreciated all the detailed info, reviews, & comparisons. This is my first hitch rack, so I did a lot of research & comparing. I have only used it once, but so far it is all I hoped & more. My son is even able to load & unload this rack. That is a definite plus of not having the static center post. Will definitely recommend eTrailer.



by:

I received my bike rack this December after a long backorder. I can't write a review on the rack until spring, but I can say I am very impressed with the staff at etrailer. They kept in touch with me over the year, updating my status until delivery. Top-notch service!



by:

Very happy with rack. Pops on and off easily, has a locking feature to secure it to car.
I do add a strap on my bike to the roof rack for less bounce. My bike is a little heavy, and I’m drive myself nuts watching in the rear view mirror, so a little more peace of mind. Locks on the rack to secure bikes are a great bonus feature. Flips up and down easily, with one latch. After one year, all good, very happy with purchase.



by:

I needed a rack for two bikes and I did not want to deal with a roof rack. I also did not want one that connected to the bumper of my car which left me to look for one that attached to a hitch receiver. The Swagman met my needs. The package arrived and as I expected the rack needed to be assembled. I would rate the assembly instructions as two stars. It took some studying the instructions to determine exactly how to assemble the parts. Once it was assembled, I was surprised at the weight. It was heavier than I would have liked, but it is a sturdy mount. I use the rack three or four times a week to get to the bike trail. At the trail head we often find many cars so the feature of folding up the rack when empty is appreciated. To minimize rack wobble when the bikes are on board requires a very tight connection to the hitch receiver so I torque the connecting bolt quite a bit. Mounting the bikes to the rack is easy. However, I noticed that the V-shaped arm that holds the bike securely has rubbed paint off the bike forks. Because of this I give the rack an overall rating of 4 starts.



by:

So far it is great. Put it together without much difficulty although the instructions note that the crossbar sections are supposed to be labeled #1 and #2 and I'll be darned if I could find numbers anywhere. So easy to load and unload the bikes and love being able to open the rear hatch. A bit heavy and unwieldy to install on the car but I manage. Sturdy and well-made.



by:

This was super easy to install on my Curt trailer that I also got from etrailer. I went with etrailer because you can actually talk to someone that knows what they are talking about. The sales person helped me make a good choice.

I ordered the Swagman Semi 2.0 from etrailer.com on April 16, 2016. It was shipped on the 17th and was delivered to my California home on the 21st. Pretty good for free shipping! Thank you etrailer.com! Putting it together was simple using just an Allen wrench, which is supplied, and a socket set. I used the Semi 2.0 the very next day attaching my road bike to it. Could not be simpler. I know that this carrier holds very well as after my ride I was tired and made a mistake when securing my bike. When I attached the bike, I used the ratcheting arm to secure the front tire along with the locking cable but forgot to secure the rear tire with the ratcheting strap. To my relief, the bike made it home without incident. Of course, I don't recommend anyone intentionally doing something like this, but it made me realize what a great job this carrier does in securing your bike for transport should you make a mistake like I did. Another thing I wish to discuss is how this carrier is attached to the trailer hitch. It uses a locking hitch pin that is threaded on one end. I torqued the pin to 50 ft. lbs. as recommended and it absolutely does not rattle. Here's why I give this carrier five stars:
1. It is easy to assemble and load your bikes.
2. It has locking cables built into the ratcheting arms. Yeah, the cables are narrow but it still offers some deterrence to a thief looking for an easy way to take a bike.
3. It has a much heavier cable that can be used to wrap around the bike frame(s) and then secured to the locking hitch pin.
4. The carrier can be folded upright close to the vehicle so it doesn't stick out as far as when in use.
5. The price is less than that of other, similar carriers so I feel I got a good bang for the buck.
6. The build quality.
About the only negative thing I can think of for this carrier is its weight. It is a bit heavy, but not a problem for me as I am able to lift it and I attach the carrier to my pickup truck which easily handles the weight. The weight of this carrier may be a consideration for others, though.
All in all, great carrier and I would recommend it to anyone, especially those who have a bike made of carbon fiber, which I do.


Comments
The Swagman Semi 2.0 has been a good purchase for me. Its a great carrier to take my bike to the local bike path and just recently I brought both of my bikes up to our getaway home in N. California which is a 500 mile trip. The Swagman Semi 2.0 did its job by carrying both bikes securely for the 8.25 hour trip. I did check the torque of the pin at about 200 miles just to be on the safe side. I have no regrets about this purchase.

The rack arrived a day earlier than originally expected thanks to the shipping department upgrading the shipping method at no cost to me. The rack itself was easy to assemble and took no more than 30 minutes. Be prepared to use a metric hex wrench for part of the assembly.


Comments
The product continues to work well. It appears to be very durable.
Chris M - 04/16/2015


by:

I have not tried it yet but it was very easy to put together and fit perfectly into my 1 1/4 inch receiver on my Rpod camper. It folds up nicely and is very sturdy on the camper once you cinch it down with the locking pin


Comments
It has been a year now and has worked without a flaw
Bradford - 05/25/2020

I've had this a year and it has worked great so far, i use this on my Mazda cx3. and there is enough clearance that you can open the tailgate even when its folded in the upright position which is nice. it has two downsides but there not a huge deal. 1 it partially blocks the view of the backup camera on my car. the camera is still useable but its a little distracting looking through the bike rack. 2 the built in bike locks are very stiff to turn and are prone to rusting. other than that all the plastic pieces have held up and it transports my bikes very well.



by:

PROS: (a) easy setup; (b) easy bike on-off; (c) adjustments for different size of bikes
CONS: (a) bike are positioned so that the spokes block the tail-lights too much (even if it suppose to be legal, not willing to risk for times of low low-visibility); (b) after a few trips to local bike parks, the cam no longer keeps bikes 90 degrees with ground even though the bar from the trailer hitch to cam is level; the bikes lean about 3 degrees back away from rear of auto so bikes are tilted toward ground (concern that this tilt will become worse with use); (c) locks and cables for bikes can be easily compromised

I am having to modify the rack for safety, security and stability. Bolts to trailer hitch of my 2016 Subaru fine but concerns with stability, safety, etc. Just my wife and my bikes (bikes weigh about 40 lbs). The cam not holding the bikes up is disappointing - there is allot of "play" when locked into any of the positions. I did much research and visited several bike shops and selected this unit because of reviews and features. However, I am not impressed with this unit for my case. I need to trust that I can make a long trip. I will just make the modifications and move on.



by:

I was impressed by all of the product review videos that etrailer put together, so when I went to order the bike rack I selected, I ordered from etrailer because their price was the same as all other sites. The product arrived in a few days and fit the bill for me. It is very heavy duty and holds the bikes securely without banging against each other. I chose this one over the Thule because it had built in bike locks (extra $60 at Thule) and was somewhat cheaper than the Thule. I wish it was all aluminum so it would be lighter, but I think that is a whole step up into another category of bike racks price-wise. Disadvantages that are somewhat minor to me:
1) two separate keys for rack and bike, they should be the same key
2) You need a wrench to install and take the rack off of the hitch. My old Yakima rack just had a crank to tighten in the hitch. This makes it a little bit of a pain to move rack between my car, my truck, and the RV.



by:

I Love this bike rack, its easy to use and keeps the bikes steay with no sway! I love the integrated bike locks so its one less thing to worry about. I had an issue with the first one i purchased thru etrailer and within a week etrailer.com shipped me a new one without any issues or hassles. this is the second purchase i had made with etrailer and this is a great company to work with! thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



by:

The Swagman Semi 2.0 was chosen for its safe design to carry carbon fiber frame bikes. My wife has a new Cannondale we did not want to damage by using a rack that holds the bike by the frame. It was also chosen because its lighter weight will allow my wife to put the rack on herself. We are happy with these features.

I am not happy that the rack shipped with 1.5 inch carriage bolts to hold the bike racks to the hitch member. They are too short. I had to find replacement 2 inch bolts to assemble the rack. Swagman service did not respond to my requests for help after leaving a voicemail. I am also not happy that the attached adapter for a 2 inch hitch bind inside the hitch on removal requiring a bit of a struggle to remove the hitch. Not a big deal but a simple beveling of the adapter would fix the problem and should already be done.

Despite these criticisms, the rack is well built and fluent to use. I recommend it.



by:

Arrived in the morning and by afternoon had it together and tested out on both of my cars, a minivan and Honda CRV. Well made and well designed bike rack. Even came with a hitch lock a heavy cable and the two lighter bike cable locks. Etrailer did a good job in communications with me.



by:

The rack performs well for the price. There are some performance issues that are getting more severe after 1 year.

1. Front wheel retention arm is difficult to adjust at times. The release lever seems to stick and is difficult to move.
2. Locks are easily corroded. After the first winter, we've had to spend a lot of time removing corrosion from steel lock. One lock is still seized at the moment.

We use this rack 2-3 times a week.



by:

Product was very easy to assemble. There was a locking device added which was not in the instructions, but was easy to figure out. The locking device locked the tack to the hitch.
We loaded our bikes and made a short trip to a trail. All went well.



by:

Love this bike rack and it's a great price. a few recommendations to the vendor, place little alpha stickers like an "A" for the major components to help in assembly. Second, use stainless steal hardware like bolts and nuts. Hardware provided is soft metal and easily stripped.

Solid product, great value
Charles C - 05/10/2018

This is a great bike rack, the best of many I've used. It is strong and durable, will undoubtedly outlast our SUVs. I love the way it protects our carbon fiber bikes by not putting pressure on the frames. We'll be using it on our frequent trips for rides along the central California coast. And the people at etrailer and swagman are great to work with. Available, supportive and ready to quickly address any issue. I've bought hitches from etrailer as well, they are excellent, and will be using the bike rack with them. I live out in the country so buy most stuff online. So important to know about companies I can confidently buy from.



by:

First let me say the process of ordering this bike rack was phenomenal so easy no issues at all the communication by Etrailer nothing than first class I would not hesitate to place another order.
The Swagman Semi 2 was shipped almost as soon as the order was completed it arrived on time and all the parts were in the box. It took me about 20 minutes to put it together and mounted on my truck. The bike locks are nice to have if you need to make a quick pit stop, anything longer I would still had better locks.
Good luck



by:

Etrailer has always exceeded my expectations in terms of available info on their website, delivery, and customer service. Their product videos are awesome. The swagman 2 bike rack appears to be well designed and made. The cable lock is a little flimsy and and my only complaint so far. The rack is very stable in the hitch and the simplicity in design should help long term reliability.
