Towable shank gives Curt bike racks towing capability

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. — Curt Manufacturing LLC has upgraded its hitch-mounted bike racks with a new towable bike rack shank #18008. The towable shank allows for use of a hitch-mounted bike rack, using the vehicle’s trailer hitch, without eliminating the option to tow a trailer.

The Curt towable bike rack shank inserts into any 2-inch x 2-inch receiver tube opening and features a ¾-inch diameter hole to accept a 1 7/8-inch or 2-inch trailer ball. With its integrated bike rack mounting bracket and 2,000-pound gross trailer weight capacity, the towable shank is able to tow a variety of light-duty trailers while providing secure and convenient bike storage.

The towable shank is available as part of two complete bike rack kits in our hitch-mounted bike rack line: #18031 and #18035. These bike racks offer a max capacity of four bikes and 180 pounds. The towable shank can also be purchased as a standalone item and fits any of Curt’s hitch-mounted or premium hitch-mounted bike racks.
