What experts liked
The SuperClamp EX is one of the lightest four-bike tray-style hitch racks available, and it can accommodate two bikes up to 60 pounds each, along with two others up to 35 pounds.

This rack has been fascinating with its unrivaled utility and compactness. The 63 lbs has been a godsend for taking the rack on and off our vehicles.

What experts didn't like
It isn’t as easy to secure in the hitch as the Kuat is—you need to tighten a lockable bolt in the hitch receiver, instead of simply turning a knob—and it’s available only for 2-inch receivers.

Because arms are shared, second bike not as easy to put on. $850 is a lot to spend.

From The Manufacturer

When adventure calls, you need a hardy bike rack to get you and your collection of bikes there. That's why we designed the superclamp 4-bike from the ground-up to be the safest, toughest, and lightest 4-bike platform hitch rack on the road. Each bike rack undergoes unparalleled testing in the heart of tundra country - meaning, if it survives here in wisconsin, it will thrive wherever your Compass leads. When it comes to durability, versatility and carrying capacity, the superclamp 4-bike packs a punch in its light, 63 lb package. In fact, the superclamp is 40% lighter than similar platform hitch Racks, yet is guaranteed to last a lifetime thanks to its tough steel construction. Load it up with fat tire bikes, electric bikes, kid's bikes, road bikes, insert-any-bike-type-here bike, and the superclamp will carry them safely to their destination. No matter where your bike wants to go, the superclamp 4-bike is up for the challenge.
