Rated 4 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.Rated 4 out of 5 by webgeeze Solid and recommended Overall, this is a good bit of kit and it locks onto the tow ball effectively and securely. I have every confidence once it's fitted properly. My only gripe is storage once it's off the car and you really need to be careful. The light board and license section at the back is weak and prone to damage easily if you rest it on the ground upright. The unit is heavy and that flimsy plastic just won't take it, as I found out and others too it seems. The workaround is to store it so it rests on the upright bike supports and the the tail is in the air. Just need to be careful. Overall, it's solid, robust and takes 4 bikes no problem. It does take a bit of getting used to, getting the straps right to secure the bikes properly and I have added more straps than the ones provided, They work but they are a bit fiddly and if your hands are cold and it's raining, much cursing can be heard from me while my family sit in the warm waiting for me lol I would recommend it, but i would wait for a deal to get it a bit cheaper. I paid £179 and I am happy with that. The lock is a bit simple and my mates one broke after a year, but that doesn't stop the bike rack being used. The tow ball mount mechanism is solid and well constructed. 23 April 2016Rated 2 out of 5 by Alongnickname pretty poor It holds 4 bikes but the way that it tells you to connect the straps means that it is extremely difficult to do so without cutting your hands every time you use it. I have changed my straps strap away from the car which is better. The lighting board is also week so you can't store in an upright position, I tried and broke the lighting board :( Would I buy again - No. I would pay more. These issues are simple and should have been identified and rectified at product testing time. Disappointing. 19 April 2016Rated 1 out of 5 by Dave3232 Exodus 4 bike carrier I have yet to ever post a review but I can not stop myself from making some comments about this product. After spending over 3 hours putting this together I would not recommend this product. It had loose bolts that may have caused a crash on the road. It had holes that did not line up and had to be drilled out. It also had important nuts and bolts loose in the box that would normally be attached. Overall the product is badly made and not worth the money. 14 April 2016Rated 3 out of 5 by DarrenB70 Highs and Lows Having arranged the box to be picked up at the local Halfords, we found that it had already be opened. When trying to put it together, there were no instructions in the box, but were able to find them online at the Halfords Website. Overall the instructions were not clear so I took the box back to Halfords and paid for it to be put together. The staff there called me to say all sorted, they advised there were lots of prices missing from the initial delivery, and that the instructions were not clear - some brut force was required. Value I marked down as a 10% discount came available after purchase (£229 paid) and I paid £15 for Halfords to put together, although the staff in store were very friendly and helpful. 18 February 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by adrian999 4 bike platform cycle carrier excellent carrier, an hour to assemble, fits on easy, after 1 trip it went on for the next trip, but then really did not want to attach for the home run, thought, I would be stuck but it did go back on I exchanged it and no problems with the 2nd one, quite dirty to tie on the bikes as you have to get yours arms underneath, you need gloves, very stable in use, you can watch the bikes while watching the view to the rear, you need to store it dry as water gets in the nooks and cranny's and it would soon rust, don't know how I managed before. 11 September 2015Rated 2 out of 5 by Murphy29 Works well but has started rusting after only a few weeks Works well but has started rusting after only a few weeks which is not on considering price. Intend to return this week 18 August 2015Rated 4 out of 5 by ChrisU101 Good, not great. I bought this having decided that I couldn't justify the Thule equivalents (at more than twice the price). It takes a while to put together, but generally feels solid. It takes 4 bikes, has electrics (7-pin) and a number plate holder - tick, tick, tick. Actually using it is where the issues for me come in. It's heavy, but you've got to accept that with the cost and build quality. You also have to take it apart a bit to clamp it onto the towball, which seems a little daft. Attaching the bikes is fiddly too, most of the straps are loose, so you have manage a bike, manoeuvring a support bar, and threading the bike ties on all at the same time, so really you need two people to do it. The tilt function seems a little limited too... it's tight (for good reason) but fully laden, you'd need to get practically underneath the thing to get it undone and get the bolt out... it's probably take less effort to take the bikes off. All in all, you get what you pay for... maybe I'd have been happier if I'd paid the lower price that some other reviewers seem to have got it at. 11 June 2015Rated 4 out of 5 by Denton Good & Solid! Overall very pleased with the carrier. Very solid when fitted! BUT......it's heavy & cumbersome! Takes a lot of room to store. Heavy & awkward to carry. Heavy to fit. BUT....once on the car.......very very good! 10 June 2015
