What E-Bike Roof Rack would Work with a Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer?


I have an ebike which weights about 56 lbs with the battery removed, and am wondering if there is a bike rack which can be mounted to the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer or similar which would hold a bike of that weight. The closest I have seen is the Inno Tire Hold II, but its limit is 50 lbs. I am looking at a trailer vs a hitch-mount rack because my vehicle is very limited on tongue weight 110 lbs. It seems like a trailer can handle the weight easily, with reasonable tongue load, but I am struggling to find a rack to go on the trailer.

I have an answer for you. Unfortunately, we do not carry any roof bike racks that are rated with a greater maximum weight capacity than the 50-pound limit on the Inno Tire Hold II Roof Bike Rack - Wheel Mount - Clamp On # INA389. Also, even if we did have a rack that would work, roof racks are not designed to withstand the extra force/torque while mounted on a trailer like the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer # MAL53FR. However, with that being said, the best thing to do is to upgrade the hitch receiver on your vehicle (if there is one available) to a higher tongue capacity.

I would be happy to help you find a solution if you provide me the year/make/model of your vehicle.
