When it comes to transport of heavy bikes such as MTB or E-bikes, the e-Scorpion 2 would be the supreme choice. High load capacity, fully foldable, easy-to-use with great stability, durability and a touch of simplicity in design.
The Scorpion is a solid carrier at 18.1kg, but because it folds up it’s relatively very easy to move about and to fit, without straining your back. It’s even got an integrated transport wheel so you won’t have to do much lifting of the rack. Just wheel it to the tow ball in the folded position – there’s a handle above the tow ball clamp, so it’s an easy vertical lift. Place it over the tow ball – you’ll be standing above the tow ball, not some distance behind it. You’ll also find that the E-Scorpion stays level and does not crash to the ground when you let go of it. Tighten, lock, unfold – all parts click into place, including the number plate holder.
It’s particularly easy to tilt, with the tilt control just above the number plate. The lights are 5 function – they include a reversing light and a fog light if you have a 13 pin socket.
Lockable frame arms hold your bikes securely and can be attached to any part of the frame, or the seat post.
