2016 Subaru Outback with an
EcoHitch and bike rack

Does the thought of flying down the interstate plagued by the incessant whistling of a fully loaded roof-mounted bike rack make your ears bleed? Or does the thought of hoisting your bike(s) overhead to secure them to the roof of your vehicle make the discs in your lower back bulge and throb in pain? Well, Torklift Central is here to tell you to throw out those bloody cotton balls and keep the ibuprofen in the medicine cabinet because the EcoHitch for the 2016 Subaru Outback is here to save the day—or at least a trip to the chiropractor or otolaryngologist.

The EcoHitch is available in both 
2" and 1 1/4" receiver sizes

Unlike the awkward—and dare we say, dorky—roof-mounted racks of yore, hitch-mounted bike racks eliminate whistling and complement the aerodynamics of your vehicle to preserve fuel economy and reduce drag. Hitch-mounted applications refuse to compromise your vehicle’s overhead clearance and perhaps most importantly, help reduce back strain and vehicle damage. You can read Torklift Central’s blog post that is a comprehensive list on why roof-mounted bike racks are anything but ideal. Moreover, the EcoHitch flaunts a completely concealed design that leaves only the hitch’s receiver visible and is perfectly compatible with both Thule and Yakima, who have arguably the highest rated hitch-mounted bike racks in the industry.

But aside from the fact that the EcoHitch for the 2016 Subaru Outback is a hidden trailer hitch that is compatible with a plethora of hitch-mounted bike racks, perhaps its best feature is its straightforward, 100% bolt on installation that requires no drilling. Here is a brief overview of the installation process for the 2016 Subaru Outback’s EcoHitch:
