Buzz Rack 'BuzzQuattro' 4 Bike Car Rack

This is possibly the best 4 bike wheel support rack on the market for less than £300!

What's the big deal about the Buzz Quattro?

Fundamentally it's down to design, safety, quality, and ease of use - and it is to our knowledge the only 4 bike wheel support rack to meet the requirements of ISO standard R18-904-4. Consider the following::

  • It's supplied almost fully assembled; minimum work is required.
  • It's the right shape for storing in the boot when not in use.
  • It fits to all tow balls with an easy "first time out only" adjustment system, even the occasional tow ball that does not meet BS standards.
  • The Buzz Quattro is particularly well balanced and therefore you can walk it onto the tow ball without it bumping on your shins.
  • Fitting is simple and fast: Place the carrier on the tow ball and tighten 2 nuts - the tools are provided.
  • The Buzz Quattro is genuinely easy to tilt, well balanced during the tilting phase, and tilts far enough for use even on vehicles with vertical tailgates.
  • It sits high on the tow ball, well clear of speed bumps and other hazards such as steep ferry ramps.
  • The wheel holders, much more robust than we've seen elsewhere, have multiple securing points that will accommodate all wheelbases, even small children's bikes.
  • The wheel holders include tough and easily adjusted wheel straps which are long enough to hold the biggest rims we've found.
  • All 4 bike holders have identically keyed locks.
  • The carrier doesn't lock to the tow ball, but we will supply a Thule cable lock at no extra charge. The reason for this is the requirement to use a spanner to achieve sufficient leverage for a strong fixing. No other mainstream manufacturer has a mounting system that is strong enough to cope with the forces imposed by a four bike carrier with equally spaced bikes. Thule and Atera, for example, have a "3+1" system, where the distance between the 3rd and 4th bike is relatively less than the distance between the other bikes.
  • All parts are replaceable if e.g. someone forgets that a tow bar carrier is fitted and reverses into a wall - which happens!
  • Dimensions = 94cm wide by 85.5cm deep (measured from the centre of the tow ball to the outside edge of the number plate holder).
  • Weight = 23.0kg.
  • Buzz Quattros are supplied with UK standard 3 function lights and a 7 pin plug; electrical adapters are available for those with 13 pin systems - see website.
  • The build quality - tube bending, welding, rust proofing, painting, component quality, is exemplary. All tools you might need are provided.
  • It's TÜV approved to the proposed ISO standard R18-904-4, a standard some way tougher than current requirements.

All things considered it's no surprise to see this carrier winning product honours - it won an Innobike Gold award at the prestigious Taipei International Cycle Show.
