|The towbar mounted BUZZ RACK Scorpion is a great choice for anyone who wants to carry 2 bikes, especially heavy bikes or electric bikes. It is particularly easy to move around, to fit, and to store, and has some really clever design features. |
Bike carriers that are strong enough for electric bikes tend to be pretty beefy themselves, so
handling these heavier bike carriers can be awkward. The Scorpion is a solid
carrier, but because it folds up it's relatively very easy to move
about and to fit, without straining your back. Carry it to the tow ball in
the folded position – there’s a handle above the tow ball clamp, so it’s an
easy vertical lift. Place it over the tow ball – you'll be standing above
the tow ball, not some distance behind it. You'll also find that the
Scorpion stays level and does not crash to the ground when you let go of it.
Tighten, lock, unfold – all parts click into place, including the number
It’s particularly easy to tilt, with the tilt control just above the number
plate. The lights are 5 function – they include a reversing light and a fog
light if you have a 13 pin socket - and are UK legal, i.e. the fog light is
on the right hand side / off side.
- These carriers are supplied ready to go; no assembly work is required.
- It’s small enough when folded to be stored in a car boot.
- It self-adjusts to all tow balls.
- Fitting is a matter of spinning a hand-turning wheel, a really quick, easy
and ergonomically satisfactory thing to do. Turn the key in the tightening wheel
and the carrier is then locked to the tow ball. An additional couple of turns on
a Nyloc nut is usually required (spanner supplied), depending on the tow ball,
to make sure the carrier won’t move from side to side.
- It sits high on the tow ball, well clear of speed bumps and other hazards
such as steep ferry ramps.
It's suitable for all bikes, including electric and other heavy bikes up to 30kg
each, making it excellent long term value.
- The wheel holders will accommodate all wheelbases, even very small
- The wheel straps are tough, easily adjusted and are long enough to hold the
biggest rims we've found.
- An extra anti-sway strap is included to prevent the front wheel from
- Both bike holders have locks, and the carrier also locks to the tow ball.
- A steel frame helps protect the lights.
- All parts are replaceable if e.g. someone forgets that a tow bar carrier is
fitted and reverses into a wall - which happens!
- A Fat Bike wheel adapter is available.
- Dimensions: 105cm wide by 62cm deep (measured from the centre of the tow
ball mount to the outside edge of the number plate holder).
- The BUZZ RACK Scorpion comes with a 5 function 13 pin lighting system, with
UK compliant fog lights, i.e. the fog light is on the right hand side / offside.
A 7 to 13 adapter is also provided, for cars with 7 pin systems (if you have a 7
pin socket the reversing light and fog light will not work - the 7 pin socket
isn't wired for these functions).
- The build quality - tube bending, welding, rust proofing, painting,
component quality, is exemplary!
