The WestSlope (Discontinued Dec 31, 2023. Replacement parts available) is a wallet friendly, feature filled & clean hitch rack. The frame body is sloped to create a tiered mounting arrangement that eliminates handlebar interference between the bikes. By using a soft touch wheel hook and a ratcheted swing arm, the WestSlope provides a secure fit with zero frame contact.

    good for sure

    We needed a two bike rack for the hitch of our RX350. It showed up, assembled in about 20 minutes and worked well for my Moots RSL and my wife's Specialized Roubaix. The mechanism that clamped on the front wheel felt secure and I did not worry about the bikes for the 1000 miles trip to Seattle. Folds easy, would buy again.

    well built and easy to use

    I was looking for a two bike rack for my Subaru and went with the westslope. my last bike rack grabbed the frame of my bike and was really hard to load. i wanted one where it has the hook style that grabs the front wheel. this appeared to be the best deal out there, and i knew i could send it back if i did not like it. assembly took about 20-25 minutes and was pretty straight forward. when i went to load our bikes for the first trip, it was really easy. the hook has a little platform on it that allows you to get a good push of the hook against the tire. we only tried our mountain bikes, and they fit in the rack parts nicely, i do not imagine any problems with the road bikes. Pros- Easy to assemble -good customer service (i called and the guy who answered the phone answered my question without transferring me) -holds the bikes well -no handlebar to seat interference as is common with rack like this -can fold down with bikes on and open my hatchback -good ground clearance, my old swagman rack dragged on the driveway when i pulled out -nothing cheap about the rack except the assembly tools (i can let this slide, i do not expect snap-on quality for single use tools) Cons- Should come with locks.

    Best Rack in the $300-$350 range on the market

    Very Easy to install, Easy to use, Packs down small, I am still trying to find something that I do not like about this rack but I am struggling mightily to do so. Great Rack for the price. I am guessing this will be a popular rack once it gains more traction in the market. Thanks RockyMounts, well done

    Pretty impressed

    I wanted a rack like this instead of hanging it from the bike frame. I had a yakima rack and the bikes would rub and hit each other when braking. My new Pivot 429 forced me to get a new rack to keep the bike from getting damaged. It arrived a day after i ordered it (i live in Ft. Collins) and was pretty easy to assemble. I like that it has an adapter and can use it on either 1.25" (my wife's car) or 2" (my Outback). You need to slide the wheel cups on and bolt, it was pretty easy as everything lined up well. My bike fits well and driving around, it is very solid. I ride with a neighbor a lot and use his Kuat rack, and the handlebars are always hitting the other bike. One this one, the back bike sits higher than the front and the bikes fir a lot better. I only used it twice, but so far, really good choice.
