REVIEWS

Freedom SuperClamp 4-Bike is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the mother of all bike racks. ust got back from a lunchtime ride, and using the new superclamp rack for the first time.This is the mother of all bike racks. It's a pleasure to use. Love the integrated lock cable for the bikes. I have to leave my bike on the rack while at work, and the locking features at the hitch reciever and the integrated cables for the bike give me peace of mind. The step pedal to raise and lower the rack is just awesome. In the up position it's out of the way. There's also a tilted down position that gets it out of the way so I can open my tacoma's tailgate completely without removing the rack. The arms and buttons are all so easy to use. This rack is really no bigger than our old Saris 2 bike rack and yet it can hold 4 bikes. Hey! We have 4 people in our family... Perfect! : ) I also like that the rack is both threaded and locking to the hitch receiver. The years of experience the company has in making bike racks is really showing. The old product was great, but it looks like they have thought of everything!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, Easy to Use Rack This has been one of the best cycling purchases I've ever made. The Superclamp is solid, easy to use, and much easier to put on and take off my truck than I thought it would be. I used to haul all of our bikes in the back of my pickup (which has a fiberglass topper), but as most of the family now rides 29ers, it was becoming more and more of a hassle to get the bikes in and out of the truck. It takes just a few minutes to load 4 bikes on the rack and secure them. I also haul my carbon road bike, and this is where the no frame contact really comes in handy. I could not be more pleased with everything about this rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dialed: Daily Adventures to Long Hauls The short of it:I travel. A lot. I've use many different racks over 15 years. To date the Freedom Super Clamp is hands down, no contest, the best vehicle rack (hitch, trunk or roof) that I have ever used.Details:Setup - A cake walk. Setup is very intuitive but the provided step by step instructions help with the correct place meant of the wheel trays. Tools required are one (1) included allen key and one (1) crescent wrench. 10 minutes from box to mounted tops.Weight:Not bad. Pretty light for a 4 bike hitch mounted tray rack. Qualification - I'm a light weight cyclist with very little upper body strength. aka, I'm a wimp. I was able to install the rack on my own with only the slightest amount of strain. For a no-strain, no-need-to-be-a-superhero setup, ask a friend to help.Adjustability:The Freedom SC adjust quickly and with ease to fit different size wheel bases. The wheel trays slide on the base and tighten into place with a simple loosening and tightening of a large, finger friendly, screw.Ease of Use:Actually those three words pretty much sum it up. The Freedom SC is as easy on, easy off and it gets. I haven't geeked out enough to measure it, but the extension arms seem to get about 160 degrees of pivot, from a flat fold on the horizontal support stays, to fully open. Coupled with the ratting and intelligently tapered wheel arms, the Freedom SC is ready to be best mates with your entire fleet of family bikes.Bike Security:That's really all we care about, right? The Freedom SC locks my bikes in such a way that there is absolutely no fear that a bike could work it's way loose. With the arm-extensions clamping down on the bike wheels and most minimal amount of "wobble" and I have ever seen in a rack, I have total piece of mind when traveling. I know that the fork and headset isn't being torched as is the case with roof racks in a sidewind. And since the frame isn't wiggling around on a top tube support or clamp, I know that I'm not going to have a nice toptube scuff mark awaiting me at my destination.I opted for the hitch and bike lock accessories. The hitch lock is bomber. Nothing more to say about that. The integrated cable bike lock is nice although it's a bit light weight. More of a "Keep honest people honest" type system. The bike lock cable inserts in the ends of tray stays for a clean look and they pull out with ease. Getting the cables back into their stowed position is a bit like pushing rope. Well, it's exactly like pushing rope. Let's hope for a spring loaded recoil feature in the future.Vehicle access and no bike travels:The Freedom SC easily pivots and locks into a position that allows rear hatch access. A key feature that not all hitch mount racks offer. The rack also pivots and locks into an upright "stow away" position. I've found this feature to be very useful when making daily trips especially when parallel parking.Saris as a company: (* I do not work for Saris in any capacity)A quick plug for Saris as a company. Although I hope I don't have issues with this rack, I know from previous experiences that the Saris customer support is top of the line. I like companies that offer top notch support, products and product durability. In my experience with Saris, I've check the box of all three. Adding to that, I love that Saris is a family company with family values and made their products are made the USA with pride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge Improvement over the CycleOn (which I loved) Shopped Kuat and Yakima 2" hitch racks (also good) but the Saris Freedom SuperClamp was the way to go. At 63-LBS it feels like about half my CycleOn it replaced. The lighter weight allows my wife to install/uninstall the rack from car-to-car easily, and saves my low back. And it's made in Wisconsin. We frequently load a 650c and three 700c race bikes driving a junior and teammates to area races. It is quite small on the back of our Forester or Expedition, leaving sight lines open (without bikes). The pivot down feature allows opening of the tailgate with 4 bikes loaded -- Handy with the family packed. First used it last weekend hauling 4 friends' road bikes to the Lone Star Century. All who saw it were impressed. When finished, we loaded up the rack, used the integrated locks, and enjoyed the post-ride festivities without having to nervously keep an eye on our expensive bikes. AND the hitch locks to the car, so the rack itself is less likely to be stolen. Last week I took my 29er full-squish, along with a friend's 26" hardtail to the trail head. Quick, easy loading/unloading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just do it I have purchased every kind of bike rack made; roof mounts, tire mounts, hitch mounts. There is simply no better/safer way to transport your bike(s). Yes, this rack costs the same as a good entry level bike, but if you transport bikes frequently you will quickly get over the price. This rack eliminates the issues of frame/components rubbing and issues regarding small frame bikes. Improvements to this rack would include lowering the weight and/or the ability to run the rack as a 2 or 4 bike carrier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Rack I bought this rack to replace a Thelma 3. I used to put 3 bikes on the Thelma and one on the roof but our new car has a panoramic sunroof so I can no longer use a roof rack. So,I needed 4- bike rack that is easy to use. This thing is solid and very stable. The tilt feature is awesome. This rack holds 4 similar sized 29ers without the need to turn handlebars or move seats. The rack is a little pricey but very solid, it will last for years. Oh, and its made in WI.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnificent Rack After battling with substandard (cheap) racks for over a decade we finally had enough and decided to buy the best rack we could find. Assembly is easy, installation is easy and mounting and dismounting the bikes is easy. It is expensive, but it is Made in the USA and is of highest quality and obviously made to last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just awesome! This was our first time with a hitch rack and we bought it before going on a cross-country trip this summer, so I was a bit nervous (don’t know why). Well, some 6000 miles later I can happily say that I had nothing to be worried about. This is a fantastic rack! It’s sturdy, can be assembled pretty easily, and the installation is relatively straightforward. It’s not massively heavy, but it might be a bit awkward trying to manoeuver the rack into the receiver yourself. One person and some WD-40 can do it, but two people would make it easier. We had two kids’ bikes, in addition to our adult bikes, and the straps for the wheel trays worked very well. As you might expect there is a little bit of time spent in determining the optimum positioning of the bikes and wheel trays, but once it’s done, it’s done!There are three great features to stress: First, the tilt-down pedal that allows you to tilt the rack down (with four bikes on it!) to gain access to the back of an SUV (we have a 2014 CX-5 with class III hitch); Second, the hitch pin screw and hitch lock are very good; Third, the empty rack can be folded up for storage. This last feature isn’t made clear in any of the promotional material, so I was very happy to see that it can fold up for storage. The bike locks included are on the light side, so they’re more of a mild deterrent, but they stow away nicely in the body of the rack. So, all in all, the rack is a great product. It is well worth it at the price listed, and it’s a steal if you can get it cheaper (we were lucky to get it 20% off). I highly recommend it.

I installed the Freedom SC4 on my 2015 Subaru Forester. When I tried to fold up the rack w/no bikes, the arms hit the bumper and not allowing the rack to click into place. The directions were not clear on this step. Did I miss a step?

Asked by: Ride bikes
If the rack does not fold up and click into place, that is due to the hitch placement on your vehicle. Unfortunately, hitch placement is a variable we are unable to control. You may want to check with your mechanic and see if there is any way to move the hitch out a bit.

Hello. Can this rack separated into two racks?

Asked by: jinhyuk
No it cannot. The tilt features of the 4 bike mean that it cannot be broken down into a 2 bike rack, but must permanently stay as a 4 bike.

What is the difference between this and freedom 4 bike rack? I want to know about.

Asked by: jinhyuk
The platform is very similar but the way the bikes are secured are different. On the Freedom there is a center support that attached to the frame of the bicycle to hold it upright. On the SuperClamp it's held upright by the wheel ratchets, so nothing makes contact with the bike frame, just the tires. Also the SuperClamp comes with fully integrated locks.

I have an Extracycle Edgerunner cargo bike that is about 84 inches long from stem to stern and is about 58 inches from hub to hub, will the Freedom SuperClamp accommodate this? It also has fenders, so the rear wheel would need the strap.

Asked by: Steve42
The SuperClamp has a max axle to axle wheel base of 47". It would not be able to accommodate your Edgerunner.
