How Much Weight Can A Bike Rack Hold?

The best bike racks to buy in 2019 can hold more than one bike. These racks are compatible with 1-inch and 2-inch hitch receivers, so you can use them on cars, trucks, vans and other vehicles with a trailer hitch.

The weight capacity of these racks vary from 1,000 pounds to 2,000 pounds. For example, the Thule T2 Pro XT is rated for two bikes at up to 200 pounds each and the Kuat NV 2.0 is rated for three bikes at up to 150 pounds each. The Yakima FatCat 4 Trunk Mount Bike Rack has a rating of 400 pounds per tray and is capable of carrying four bikes total.

If you’re hauling multiple bikes or plan on using your rack for other things like kayaks or skis, you should look for a sturdy rack that’s easy to install and use. Make sure it fits your vehicle and has features like anti-sway cradles that keep the bikes tight against each other during transport or tie downs to secure your load even further if needed.
