Types of Towbar

Fixed Flange

A 50mm towball is bolted to a two or four hole plate that also allows the fitting of accessories such as a towbar mounted cycle carrier.

 

  • Tow and carry cycles at the same time

  • Bumper shields can be fitted

  • On some towbars the towing height can be adjusted on the four-hole plate

  • A choice of towing couplings and accessories can be fitted

Fixed Swan Neck

Neater in appearance than the flange type but not as versatile. Cycle carriers are available for this type of bar but you cannot tow at the same time.

 

  • Compatible with AL-KO stabilisers

  • Less likely to trigger reversing sensors than a flange type

Detachable Swan Neck

Similar in appearance to the swan neck design with the added advantage of being removable when not in use.

 

  • Towball is removed when not in use to ensure maximum invisibility

  • Unrestricted access to the boot

  • Compatible with AL-KO and other friction type stabilisers

  • Won't trigger reversing sensors when not towing

Detachable Flange

This version offers all the versatility of a fixed flange bar whilst leaving very little of the towbar visible when detached.

 

  • Tow and carry bikes at the same time

  • The towball is removed when not in use to ensure maximum invisibility

  • AL-KO towballs can be fitted

  • Won't trigger reversing sensors when not towing

  • A choice of towing couplings and accessories can be fitted
