Comparing Weight of Inno Tire Hold 4 Bike Platform Rack and Saris MTR 4 Bike Platform Rack


what is the definition of carrier weight. THis Inno seems heavier at 118#, While the saris and equivalent 2 inch 4 bike carrier tray are around 55- 60 # carrier weight.


Expert Reply:

The Inno Tire Hold 4 Bike Platform Rack part # INH142 is listed as having a carrier weight of 118 lbs which is the full weight of the carrier without packaging. The Inno Tire Hold 4 Bike Platform Rack is very durable and well made but with this comes a heavy rack. The Saris MTR 4 Bike Platform Rack part # SA4032-34 weighs around 110 lbs, each two bike section is about 55 lbs. That said, you won't have to lift the entire weight of the carrier to get it onto the vehicle as it can be done so in sections.

If you are looking for a lighter option, the Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Platform Rack part # NV22B-NA22B is only 82 lbs.

The best (and only) rack we have available for this setup is the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1450Z-E-TRKADP3 . This unique carrier can handle both a trike that's up to 100 pounds and an e-bike that weighs as much as 80 pounds. For the step-thru frame you can add an adapter bar like # HRBA-PRO to provide a horizontal attachment point for the ratcheting hook.
