Billed as the “Smallest Bike Rack in the World,” SeaSucker's Hornet 1-bike rack is so compact that it fits into an included 9.5- x 7- x 3-inch zip carrying case for easy storage and travel, making it far and away the most travel-friendly rack on the market. Plus, it works equally well for everyday use!
The Hornet is SeaSucker's first leave-the-front-wheel-on bike rack. It mounts to the rear window of any hatchback, SUV or minivan using 2 of SeaSucker’s powerful 4 ½-inch diameter vacuum cups (120 pound-rated pull strength each) to hold the handlebars and hang mountain or road bicycles weighing not more than 35 pounds from the rear glass. Integrated adjustable plastic "ladder" straps securely hold bicycles by the handlebars to the vacuum cups and make attaching and removing bikes to your Hornet a breeze.
As with all SeaSucker bike racks, the pump-action vacuum cups also allow mounting the rack to your car in just seconds, making the Hornet one of the easiest and fastest racks to install. Simply pump the two vacuum cups onto the back windshield, invert your bicycle and place the bars onto the cups, close the ladder straps around the bars and you’re done (the seat just rests against the car). And when it comes time to remove it, the Hornet detaches just as quickly and breaks back down into its components for storage in its case.
The Hornet also comes with a safety strap that loops around the bike’s steer tube and into a sewn-in cam buckle. The strap’s tail has a built-in plastic peg that, when closed in the hatchback, secures the strap to the car.
