The Apex Pivot Plate is an essential component of the bicycle rack system for all Apex bicycle racks. The pivot plate is connected to bumper brackets and enables the bicycle rack to move between the stowed and deployed positions. The Apex 3 pivot plate comes standard with a torsion spring. If desired an additional torsion spring can be added to both the Apex 2 and Apex 3 pivot plates, with the addition of an advertising panel for example. Torsion springs help reduce the rack lifting weight. Apex pivot plates are 16” wide. The Apex Pivot Plate offers many improvements compared with our Standard Pivot Plate, please refer to the Apex Family Summary of Design Improvements document to learn more.
