The factory trailer hitch receiver on your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon will limit the amount of compatible bike racks due to the placement of the hitch pin hole and it's lack of depth inside the receiver tube opening. The Lets Go Aero BikeWing-2 part # LGA54FR has two hitch pin holes. One of them will accept a threaded hitch pin and the other a standard hitch pin like part # PC2. If you use the standard non-threaded hitch pin then that will give you enough depth inside the receiver tube to safely secure the bike rack.

The BikeWing is a wheel mount bike rack that grips the bikes by the wheels which will eliminate the need for any adapter bar. It also has adjustable cradles to stop sway and is very light weighing in at only 20 lbs. It comes with a 1-year warranty and has a 80 lb weight capacity (40 lbs per bike).
