Trailer versus bicycle carrier. Which of the two causes the heaviest load?
What has a greater impact on a towbar, a trailer or a bicycle carrier? Chances are you think the answer is the trailer. After all, a trailer is much heavier than a bicycle carrier. Yet the correct answer is the bicycle carrier. The pressure that a bicycle carrier exerts on the towbar is much greater than the forces of a loaded trailer on the towbar. And that demands a lot from both the towbar and the car.
We develop special towbar solutions for electric and hybrid cars that can carry bicycle carriers but cannot tow trailers. With this solution you can safely take a bicycle carrier with bicycles on the back of the car. Because the name ‘towbar’ is not sufficient, we have given this carrying solution the name ‘bike carrier solution’. Also known as RMC (Rear Mount Connector).
