Bike Rack For Heavy E-Bikes With Ramp For Easy Loading

Question:

Im looking for a bike rack that can handle an e-bike for my wife, and it looks like the Rockymounts ls2 is a good one. The only issue is getting the bike up onto the rack. Is there a ramp attachment that could help her roll it up onto the trays? If not, what other racks have ramps that could make the mounting process easier?

The RockyMounts SplitRail LS 2 Bike Platform Rack part # RKY11404 is a good option for E-bikes because of it's 60 lb per bike weight capacity and E-bikes have a tendency to be heavier. However, it does not have a ramp so it can be more difficult to get the bikes on the rack like you mention.

I recommend the Thule EasyFold XT 2 E-bike part # TH903202 for the e-bikes it comes with a folding aluminum ramp that will allow your wife to roll her bike on and off the rack without lifting the heavy bike. This bike rack is designed for e-bikes so it has a 65 lb per bike capacity. I have attached a demonstration video for your reference.
