The full-size ALTA superior model based on the General-Purpose Rack (GPR) sizing, this ALTA superior 45ER is the rack that will carry four or five E bikes.

Heavily tested to prove this rack can withstand the harshest setups.

Great for RVs, campers, 5th wheels, toy haulers, and other rough suspension vehicles.

Still one of the most narrow and lightest racks on the market. This rack weighs just over 90 pounds.

The XL Hitch provides the perfect distance for rear tailgate access and van doors. Rack does not have play, if installed correctly, so windows are safe.

Dual gusseting system to support much heavier bikes and reduce flex during rough road driving.

Fully adjustable baskets allow for perfect distances between the bikes.

This rack has been tested for over 18 months in the roughest conditions in Southern Utah.

Our three-step powder coat ensures long life. We sand blast all parts, apply zinc primer, and then finally the outdoor-rated color. Powder coat is warrantied for one year.

Cam Zink’s and Travis Rice favorite rack.

To carry E bikes on any Superior racks, brakes must be engaged on the bikes, E bike straps installed on the pedal and weight of the bike lifted from the basket, rack must be tied down to the vehicle low and wide (bumper) or high and wide (roof rack), going to the chain loops on the receiver is not going to satisfy this. If you are running 24 inch or 26 inch tires wheel chokes must be utilized. Ensure all connection are tied, test your receiver for flex and address it.

    Put the alta 45er on the back of our travel trailer and travel 2500 miles on this last trip. The rack performed flawlessly. Only suggestion is to make sure you do jam nut the racks in place as the road vibrations will loosen them. This rack also has some beautiful welds and you can tell it was made by some people who care. You just don’t see that very often in manufactured products.

    What a great company to do business with! I had questions and reached out to them after hours and on the weekend and got an immediate reply both times. I placed my order for a 45er and a mobile floor stand and received shipping confirmation quickly and had it on my front door (in central California) 2 days later.

    I am using this for bike storage in the garage and the clearance with an 8 foot ceiling is tight but still doable.

    The rack and stand are very well made and the fit and finish is top notch. Thank you ALTA! A Happy Customer.

    It’s a high end Rack. I need more time actually using it to be sure its better than 4 stars though. I suspect I will be very happy over time, and working with Ali and the Staff has been absolutely GREAT.

    I called Alta Racks, left a voice mail, and unexpectedly received a text message shortly after to start a conversation. I explained what I was looking for and was recommended the Superior 45ER. Purchase to assembly and install in my own driveway was about 9 days.

    I carry 4 Specialized Comos (e-bikes) and after a couple trips have been very satisfied. The build quality is very sturdy. Attention to detail is very obvious throughout the buying process. This is my first hanger rack and I couldn’t be happier.

    This rack is flat out bomber. 2nd Alta Rack. The Superior 45ER is perfect for 4 e-MTB on back of Jeep TJ. Extremely solid and sturdy. Just what we were looking for.
