Introducing Sportworks Apex 2 Modular Transit Bike Rack

Sportworks Apex 2 - 2 Position Modular Bike Rack

Tony Matesi // 04.19.2017

Introducing the new Sportworks Apex 2™ modular bike rack system. The sleek, compact design follows in the footsteps of the Sportworks Apex 3™ bike rack. 

The stainless steel frame, wheel trays, and support arms are designed to reduce bounce and uses the same heavy-duty pivot plate as the Apex 3.

In addition to structural updates, the engineers at Sportworks have made design improvements across the board in the development of the new Apex 2™.

This 2-position bike rack is the new standard for bike racks on buses. 

Sportworks Apex 2™ will be available June 2017.
