Fat bikes seem to be popping up left and right, but getting them to your riding destination can still be a challenge. When it comes to tray style hitch mount racks a few manufacturers like Kuat and Thule are offering fatbike kits that will accommodate 4” tires, but when it comes to the new crop of 5” monsters most tray rack owners are still out of luck. The new Freedom Super Clamp from Saris changes that.

Like other tray style racks, the Freedom Super Clamp still needs an adapter kit to work on fatbikes, but the news here is that it works with the larger 5” tires. Saris sells their Fat Tray adapter for $44.99 per bike and it is compatible with any Saris Freedom Rack. That means if you want to carry two fatbikes you need two kits. The Fat Tray adapter bolts onto the rack but uses the standard upper clamps to hold your fatbike on the Freedom Super Clamp without touching the frame and includes a longer wheel strap.
The Super Clamp has built in lock cables for your bikes, and works with both 1 ¼” and 2” hitches out of the box.
