We think that E-Scorpion deserves to be a top choice for anyone who wants to carry 2 bikes, especially larger, heavy bikes or electric bikes. It’s a hugely versatile rack that can take a big range of different types of bikes. Whatever bike you have now (or in the future) the E-Scorpion should be able to accommodate it. 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 at 18.1kg, but because it folds up it’s relatively very easy to move about and to fit, without straining your back. It’s even got an integrated transport wheel so you won’t have to do much lifting of the rack. Just wheel 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 E-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 plate holder.

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.
