A brilliant solution to the problem of transporting a tricycle by car has finally arrived!
British made, this tricycle carrier is robust and stable. With 3 adjustable wheel cradles, this rack can transport any solo tricycle up to 35kg with ease. Fits onto any tow-bar. The rack allows you the freedom to take your tricycle wherever your car will take you. It comes complete with an integrated number-plate/lighting board.
You might also be interested to know that, in some instances (as long as the weight limit isn’t exceeded and depending on the dimensions of the bike/trike/vehicle in question) it’s sometimes possible to add our +1 Bicycle Carrier Kit onto the rack, sandwiched between the car and the tricycle. Ask for details.
The tricycle is held in place by the tyres, giving a very solid and stable fitting. Straps secure the bike to the rack at these 3 points. Adjustable to fit wheelbases between 980 and 1350mm and track widths of up to 860mm.
The D Loops will fit tyres up to 3 inches wide – (different sizes are available, please contact us for more information).
The modular design makes it easy to strip down to component parts or leave partially assembled while not in use.
We offer two different types of mounting block so our racks can be used with any type of towbar. The appropriate mounting block for you depends on the type of tow bar you have and whether you wish to tow whilst having a rack in place. Order your rack with one of these mounts.
Ball Mounting – Will fit: Swan neck, detachable and Mounting standard 2 bolt flange tow bars.
A universal mount that fits around the tow ball and consists of two parts which are bolted securely together – the first part contains the sockets which the bike rack arms fit into and the second part is a back plate so the two components sandwich around the tow ball. Both parts are moulded inside to the shape of a tow ball to give a perfectly sturdy, secure fit. Due to the way this fits around the ball you will be unable to tow when the mounting is in place.
Please note Ball Mounting option is not available in Higher Racks.
Behind-the-ball Mounting – Will fit: Standard 2 bolt flange tow bars only.
A standard mount that fits securely between the tow ball and towing bracket of standard 2 bolt flange tow bars. Ideal for people wanting to tow while carrying their bikes. Please read individual rack descriptions, as not all racks are suitable for towing. When towing with a Pendle Bike Rack we advise that a maximum of two bikes are carried and that individuals check their towing set-up and turning circles with the rack and bikes fitted, before setting off on their journey.
Retractable Tow Bars: If using with a retractable swan neck tow bar, you may not be able to retract and stow the tow ball with the ‘On the Ball’ mounting block fitted.
A fitting service is offered at our York Try-out centre – at a cost of £35 and by appointment only.
