Comparing Swagman XTC2 and XC Bike Racks


Whats the difference between the Swagman XC2 and the XTC2? What do I get for the extra$ with the XTC2?


Expert Reply:

The big difference between Swagman XC, # S64650, and the Swagman XTC-2, # S64670, is the XTC-2 is capable of handling bikes with up to 66 inch long wheelbases, while the XC can handle bikes with a wheelbase up to 51-1/2 inches.

In my opinion, if given the choice between the Swagman XC, # S64650, and the XTC, # S64670, I would go with the XTC every time. The upgraded wheel loops and rubber straps better secure the bikes than the wheel loops alone on the XC.

Additionally the XC can accommodate wheels up to 3-1/2 inches wide, while the XTC-2 accommodates wheels up to 2-1/2 inches wide. Also the XC has a shank rise of 4 inches, where the XTC-2 has a shank rise of 3 inches, which helps when unloading and loading bikes.

I have attached links to product review videos for both of these racks.
