Rotating Arms with Ratcheting Hooks

RockyMounts SplitRail LS Adjustable Wheel Arm

The SplitRail has ratcheting hooks that grab your bikes firmly by the front wheel - not the frame. It's perfect for carrying carbon bikes or bikes with a custom paint job. 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.


Sliding Rear-Wheel Straps

RockyMounts SplitRail LS 2 Bike Rack Adjustable Rear Wheel Straps

The sliding rear-wheel straps allow the rack to accommodate bikes with wheelbases up to 48" long. The ratcheting, rubber straps hold your bikes' rear wheels securely in place on the tray and fit tires up to 3" wide.


Adjustable Bike Tray

RockyMounts SplitRail Rack Adjustable Bike Tray

The front and back trays adjust 4" side-to-side to ensure you have enough space when loading your bikes. Just remove the 4 bolts where the tray attaches to the top of the rack, slide the trays left or right to achieve the desired spacing, and then re-install the bolts. This will prevent your bikes' handlebars from becoming tangled, and it eliminates the fear of bike-to-bike contact.


Front-Mounted Release Lever for Easy Tilting

RockyMounts SplitRail LS Tilt Function for Rear Access

The rack tilts down - with or without bikes loaded - so you can access your vehicle's rear cargo area. Because the tilt-release lever is located at the front of the rack, you don't have to worry about crawling through bikes or squeezing between the rack and the vehicle to pull it. When you raise the rack back up, you'll hear a click to indicate it's secure.


RockyMounts SplitRail LS 2 Bike Rack Folded Up

The lever also lets you fold the rack up for storage when you're not transporting a bike. This is great for parking in places where space is limited such as a parking garage


Easy Installation

RockyMounts SplitRail LS Anti Wobble Hitch Lock Diagram

It installs into your 2" hitch receiver. Insert the shank into your vehicle's hitch receiver, then install the hitch pin and tighten it down. As the pin tightens, it engages the 3-axis anti-wobble bolt inside the shank. This system will reduce noise and movement while the rack is installed.


Complete Security

RockyMounts SplitRail LS 2 Bike Rack Built-in Cable Locks

Included locks secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle. The integrated cable lock threads around your bikes' frames and inserts into the lock that slides along the cable.


RockyMounts SplitRail LS Hitch Lock and Hitch Pin

The hitch pin also comes with a hitch lock to help prevent the rack from being removed from your vehicle.


Convenient Wall Mount Storage Hook

RockyMounts SplitRail LS Hanging Mount In Use

An included mounting hook bolts to a secure attachment point so you can hang the rack when not in use. Simply remove the rack from your vehicle, reinstall the hitch pin and then set the shank in the middle of the bracket, inserting the hitch pin into the bracket's cradles.


RockyMounts SplitRail LS Hanging Mount

To mount the storage hook, use a pair of 5/16" x 3" lag bolts (sold separately). Select a sturdy location, such as a wall stud, and make sure the location is at least 36" off the ground so the rack can hang unobstructed.


Optional 1-Bike Add-On for 3 or 4 Bike Carrying Capacity

RockyMounts SplitRail Bike Rack Add-On Demonstrated

An optional 1-bike add-on (sold separately) allows you to convert the rack from a 2-bike carrier to a 3- or 4-bike carrier.

A year later and we still love it. We use a few Velcro strips for extra stability but all and all it’s great. Bought an extender so we could transfer from car to our RV

It’s been great. We use on our SUV and RV. we use some extra velcro straps and also always take out the ebike batteries.

This rack was very easy to assemble and even though it's heavy and awkward, I was able to mount it easily to my car without help or struggle. I will add more once I actually get my bike on it to hit the road.

I bought my first SplitRail rack a year ago and love it so much, I bought my daughter one for her car as well. When I got mine, the fat-tire tray and arm options were not available. I can still get my fat-tire bikes on this rack using straps to secure it down. Overall, a solid investment and I highly recommend it!



- RKY11404

Awesome rack all around, very high quality feel and everything just works great. I actually bought this rack (new LS model) after seeing a review for the original SplitRail, primarily because it had a “quick-release” (non-threaded) hitch pin with an anti-rattle tension knob on the outer end of the center tube. The LS apparently went back to a threaded hitch-pin design, I’m assuming because they bent the center tube up for more ground clearance. Turns out the threaded hitch pin device is SOLID (I didn’t know how much I’d appreciate that, it’s like an extension of your vehicle) and takes 10 seconds with the included wrench (I use a $5 ratcheting box wrench and it takes 5 seconds). I have an inclined driveway where the previous rack would scrape the ground, the bend in the tube now gives me 3-4” of clearance, so probably a worthwhile tradeoff. We previously had (and loved) Yakima High Rollers on the roof of our Subaru Outback, but we moved to a RAV4 and the wife wasn’t able to load bikes herself, she is thrilled with the ease of loading on these trays. The big wide aluminum trays are very forgiving compared to the narrow steel versions where wheels can fall between trays. I was a little concerned about losing the ratcheting rear wheel straps I was used to on the High Rollers, but honestly the simple cinch straps on the SplitRail are solid and effortless, saving a few seconds of ratcheting per bike. The bikes never even wiggle (with 1.9, 2.1, and 2.35 tires so far) Aesthetically, it’s just the right blend of industrial and curvy, holes in the right places where “self cleaning” comes to mind, and the blue accents are just right... especially folded up. There are extra bolt holes in the trays if you need to offset so handlebars don’t hit seats etc, but wasn’t necessary for us. Her bike seems solid just sliding the wheel brace down until it touches, mine wiggled a bit until I compressed into the tire another click or two, just snug. Helps to compress again when releasing the slide-ratchet, which is otherwise very easy and ergonomic. I actually just lay my palm on the tire hook and pull against the fork arch for that extra click (and when releasing) without even thinking about it now. Integrated locks are pretty cool and a nice touch when grabbing a burger or a beer on the way home (always seem to forget mine at home). And for those considering the rear two-prong “hanger” style racks, which are typically half the price, I have to say going to a tray is worth the price difference EVERY TIME you load. No more fighting suspension or bending cables or bikes rubbing together, or taking three bikes off to get to the inside one when plans change. Not to mention expensive rubber straps aging and cracking. I fought one for years and I’m still kicking myself.


Comments
A year later and it still works like new, just a little wear on the tire straps. Both of our XC bikes were stolen off the back of our car right in our driveway thanks COVID so now I’m lifting the old 40lb freeride bike up and really appreciating the ease of loading this thing. At least I can say I’ve tried the 2.5” tire and it fits great.

This product works perfectly to hold two e-bikes. Assembly was easy and all parts and tools to assemble were included. The no-wobble hitch pin with lock is fantastic. etrailer’s price beat even the manufactures by over $100 dollars. The included bracket to store the rack helps reduce the space needed to store the rack in my garage. This is the best purchase I have made in some time. Thanks etrailer.com

I had this rack for almost a year and all I can say it is awesome.Quality of a more expensive rack but in reach of affordiability. Visibility is awesome, and the build is excellent. The looks I get when I'm on the Highway from a Yamika, Saris, or Thule owner are priceless. I can't wait till my Kids learn how to ride without training wheels family trips will be in full effect.


Comments
After a year of using this rack plus that addition of fat bikes, I marvel at the durability of it. No rusting after the time I forget to take it off from no riding down pours and snow storms. The straps and built in lock are solid. Now that my family is growing Ill be buying the two add-ons next spring. I also like how other cars with bikes slow down and stare at my rack when im on the road or in the parking lots. The look on their faces when I tell them how much I paid for it vs the big name brands is priceless.

After four long trips on the back of a toyhauler, one which included a serious rear tire blowout, we can safely say that this purchase was well worth it. While traveling, we keep a watch on our precious bicycles with our backup camera and have yet to see them even wobble. They stay put no matter what the road conditions are. It is very quick and easy for us to load, secure, and unload from this rack. It's a bit heavy for me as a 70 year old small woman to mount the rack on the hitch by myself, but I can do it if necessary. Love this rack and so glad we purchased it. Thank you.

After a year, I still love the bike mount! Have travelled many miles with it on the back and it has kept our bikes safe. Love how it stores hanging on the garage wall when not in use to save space.

A bit heavy to carry, but all around a great product. Easy to use and versatile for all kinds of bike sizes



- RKY11404

Awesome rack. I love the levered handle release. Super sturdy and easy to use. While a bit on the hefty side, it's manageable. I added a 3rd row, which was easy, but decreased access to the release handle a bit. adding a 4th row would probably make handle access quite difficult. It is likely that the factory 3 and 4 row would avoid that. The provided lock is pretty flimsy. It's designed to keep honest people honest. So I just add some additional locks when I think it's necessary. But let's be honest. A power saw is going to make just about any bike on any rack accessible to someone who wants the bike(s), so there really is a limit in how far it is practical to go with any rack lock. Anyway, a great rack and would definitely buy again. We also have the other Rocky-Mounts rack, the MonoRail, and its a great rack also.



- RKY11404
by:

Rocky Mounts Splitrail is a great rack with many features. The front wheel arms fit many wheel sizes, the folding mechanism still works great after a full year. The only part that is odd is the rear wheel tray. Road bike wheels and kids bike wheels aren't thick enough to make tight contact with the strap. Although I have never had anything close to a problem with the rear tray, it is still not a tight as I would prefer. Mtb wheels are held just fine because they are thicker. The locks that come with the rack are good, but the cable is little short. Good in a pinch, but if you really want to lock your bike, bring an extra cable.

A wonderful ebike carrier. Bikes are not right next to each other and unlikely to be damages. Etrailer personnel were helpful and delivery was prompt.

  • How to Use Replacement Integrated Cable Lock for RockyMounts SplitRail Bike Rack
    You can replace the integrated cable lock of your RockyMounts SplitRail LS 2-Bike Platform Rack # RKY11404 - as well as the 3-Bike # RKY11404-3 and 4-Bike # RKY11404-4 with the SplitRail Integrated Cable Lock Replacement # RKY12005. I asked a representative of RockyMounts about how to replace this lock and was told that you will only need to undo a set screw and they include a Torx wrench with the lock so you can easily accomplish this.

  • Differences Between Rockymounts Splitrail LS and SplitRail
    The RockyMounts Splitrail LS part # RKY11404 is the updated version of the Splitrail part # RKY1140 that you also referenced. The racks still look very similar but the big change is an updated anti-rattle device that does a much better job removing movement from the rack while travelling. The base is also improved to allow better ground clearance.

  • Overall Length and Ground Clearance Estimate for the RockyMounts Split Rail Bike Rack

The RockyMounts Split Rail bike rack # RKY11404 measures 32-1/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the end of the bike rack when folded down to load bikes. Ground clearance will depend on the distance from the ground to the top of the receiver opening so if you take that measurement on your vehicle and then add another 5 inches that is the approximate location of the bottom of the spine that holds the rails the...

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for 2015 Toyota RAV4 to Allow Rear Hatch Clearance

Check out the picture I attached that shows the hatch opening. This rack is really great too because it only touches the tires of the bike which means no contact with the bikes frame or finish.

  • Is The RockyMounts SplitRail LS 2 Bike Platform Rack Capable of 3-Axis Anti Wobble?
    Yes. The RockyMounts SplitRail LS 2 Bike Platform Rack # RKY11404 uses the 3-axis anti wobble by installing the locking hitch pin and anti-wobble bolt. To engage the 3 axis anti-wobble, you'll insert the included hitch pin from the passenger side of the receiver and then tighten down the pin to engage the 3-axis anti-wobble system inside the shank. The SplitRail LS is designed for use on 2" hitch receivers. I've linked a brief review video on the SplitRail LS for you to have a look at as well.

  • Comparing RockyMounts MonoRail and Split Rail for Carrying Pace Aventon 500
    The main difference between the SplitRail # RKY11404 and MonoRail # RKY10004 is that the MonoRail can carry bikes with 5" wide tires; the SplitRail will only carry bikes with tires up to 3" wide. It looks like the Aventon Pace 500 has 27"x 2.2" tires, so the MonoRail # RKY10004 would work well for you on your 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe. If you think there's ever a chance you'll switch to fat tire e-bikes then I recommend going with the SplitRail # RKY11404.

  • Where to Attach the Curt Stabilizer Strap to the RockyMounts Split Rail Bike Rack
    Attaching the Curt stabilization strap # 18050 to a bike rack like the SplitRail # RKY11404 is a little tricky since there isn't a center mast. As long as the strap is attached at all you will be in compliance with the hitch warranty requirements though. I recommend attach it as best as you can to the nearest hooked arm or you might be able to loop it around the shank. As long as it is attached in some manner to the rack and to the vehicle you will be within the warranty requirements.
