The Trilogy™ (DL3) is Sportworks original 3-position rack designed for carrying up to three bikes on full-sized 102" wide transit vehicles.More info
The Apex 3™ sets a new standard for safety and performance in transit bike racks. The frame, wheel trays, and support arms have been completely redesigned to reduce bounce, and minimize the rack's footprint for better vehicle turn radius, headlight / turn signal visibility and improved safety.
The Apex 3™ is the first 3-position rack recommended for use on cutaways (excluding Chevrolet 4500 and 5500) and other small vehicles measuring 96" or greater in width excluding mirrors, and is compatible with existing Sportworks mounting brackets. Other benefits include:
All Sportworks bumper-mounted bike racks require a Pivot Plate, Brackets and Bolt Kit for proper installation.
Sportworks offers two primary types of Brackets that secure the Pivot Plate and Bike Rack to a vehicle bumper.
Sportworks Transit Racks - Quick, Easy and Intuitive!
Approaching from the curbside, the rider lowers the rack with one hand while supporting the bike with the other hand. This durable rack is as easy to raise as it is to lower.
After lowering the rack, the rider places the bike into one of the rack’s open wheel trays. All bike positions are completely independent of each other, making it easy to load or unload bikes with others already loaded in the rack.
To secure the bike, simply pull the unique self-storing support arm out and over the front tire. The handle should be placed as close to the front brake and head tube as possible to ensure safety and security of the bike, and in all cases the handle must be closer to the head tube than the highest point of the tire.

Scott McKinley has been with Sportworks for over two decades. He is an avid bike commuter, commuting year-round from his home in Seattle to the factory in Woodinville, Wa. His commute is 28 to 30 miles round trip, depending on the route he takes. Scott's favorite ride? The Markleeville Death Ride (now renamed, “Tour Of The California Alps”). A wheelsucker’s nightmare with 5 mountain passes, extreme heat and over 15K ft of climbing. Most of the ride is closed to cars, so descents are screamers.
Scott once rode his bike from Alice Springs to Ayers Rock in Australia (270 miles) in a day and a half. "There were flies everywhere and only three places to stop along the way. I carried 8 liters of water to make it through. My knee imploded after the ride, but hey, it is about the experience."
Scott is the VP of Materials Control at Sportworks and is responsible for making sure the factory has all of the raw materials and parts we need for daily operation. In his spare time, Scott is attending Cascade Bicycle Club's Advocacy Leadership Institute and is an avid telemark and backcountry skier.
While every city and municipality is unique, as the inventors of the most popular Transit Racks, we've learned that there are common threads.
