Bought this to carry one bike on the back of a small SUV. I have a heavy duty Yakima 4 bike rack that I use on my truck when carrying multiple bikes.
I liked the fact that it is fully assembled. Many racks require assembling, and have pretty unclear instructions. I had this installed in just a couple minutes.
I like the ratchet style straps better than the stretch/loop type straps on my other rack. They are easier to use and hold the bike firmly. The anti sway brackets also do a great job of holding the bike steady.
The foot lever for the swing down feature is great. Far better than the pin mechanism on other racks. It is effortless to lower or raise it, even with a bike installed.
The lock mechanisms are good. One minor drawback is the hitch lock and the bike lock use different keys. On my Yakima, both locks use the same key. However they were added cost options on the Yakima and are included in the Inno's very reasonable price.
The Inno holds my bike securely. So far I have seen no drawbacks. It is a bit heavier than I expected since they advertise it as lightweight, but that is not a problem.
Overall, it is a solid, well designed, easy to use and good looking rack. So far,very happy with my purchase. And Walmart,s price was $100 lower than any other place I could find, including online dealers.
