Apex 3 Fat Tire Apex 2 Fat Tire Fat Tire Conversion Kit

We have heard from transit operators in snowy northern cities, beach towns, mountain towns, universities, and many places in between. We are pleased to offer a solution that works for any transit agency that wants to offer the widest range of bike accommodations to encourage more bike and bus trips.

Fat tire bike trays and support arms are compatible with all new and existing Apex 2 and Apex 3 transit bike rack frames, for any or all bike positions. They can be added or removed from a rack in minutes.

The fat tire kit consists of a wider bike tray and wider support arm. The fat tire kit is compatible with all tire widths up to 5.5", and wheel sizes from 24"-29". For smaller wheel sizes, such as 16" and 20", the standard Apex trays must be used.

Contact the Sportworks Sales Team to reconfigure your Apex bike rack.

Apex Standard/Fat Combination Racks

Any Apex rack can be ordered as a standard/fat tire combination rack or retrofitted to become a combination rack. To ensure the usability of your bicycle rack, we recommend having at least one standard position. This way, the bike rack will have an option to accommodate bicycles with wheel sizes less than 24" such as kids bikes and some BMX bikes.

Why Add Transit Racks?

While every city and municipality is unique, as the inventors of the most popular Transit Racks, we've learned that there are common threads.
