Comparing the Weight of the Swagman Chinook Bike Rack and the Swagman XTC2


I have Rav4 with a 1.25 receiver hitch. I am comparing these two bike racks. They both have good ratings. We have two bikes a cross over womens bike and a cross country mens bike. What are the weight of each of these racks? I could not find that in the specs.


Expert Reply:

These are two good choices! The Swagman XTC 2 # S64670 weighs in at roughly 32-lbs and the Chinook # S64683 weighs about 47-lbs, so if you're looking for the lightest weight rack it's definitely going to be the XTC 2. However, if you're not concerned with the weight difference, the Chinook would be my recommendation since it tilts away from the vehicle to allow you access to the rear cargo area with the bikes still loaded on the rack.

I'll also mention that both of these bike racks will likely require the use of a bike adapter bar like the # 64005 for the women's bike.
