Lightweight Bike Rack Recommendation for 2011 Subaru Impreza


Hello, I would like to purchase a bike rack for my 2011 Subaru Impreza. I need something lightweight, easy to install and reliable. I have a womens mountain bike and a kids bike. The kids bike could fit inside the car if needed, but figured Id put that in the request just in case. Thanks so much. I look forward to your response.

The lightest weight bike rack out there that is also very easy to use is the Kuat Beta # B202-114 which weighs in at 12.6 lbs. This is also a very high quality rack too which means it will be very reliable.

Now you'll need a hitch installed on your vehicle so for that you'd want the Curt # C11315 for if you have a 5 door wagon with single exhaust # C11120 if you have a wagon with quad exhaust or # C11317 if you have a sedan.

If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.
