Got a hatchback? A four-door sedan or a passenger van? Then the Sentinel two-bike trunk rack from Saris is designed with you in mind. Fits atypical body styles and can be mounted over most spoilers or lighting arrays. Carries up to three bikes. Made with adjustable arms that can be mounted securely in multiple positions or can fold flat for storage. The hold-downs wrap around each bike independently so to keep them crashing into one another and to keep then from wobbling while in transit. The hooks that secure the rack to the trunk seam are neoprene coated so they won't scratch your car's finish, and the bottom bar brace has a vinyl covered foam pad to separate the rack from your trunk lid. No assembly required. Just take it out of the box, strap it on and go.

Product Description

The Saris Sentinel Rear Racks take all the things you love about roof mounted systems and put them where you can actually get at them. Like convenience. Simplicity. Peach of mind. Whether you need temporary bike transport that gets you through a weeked, or a more long-term solution that fits in eith your daily activities, Sairs has your rack. And it's a lot closer than you might think.

Easy to use and install.

I only had one bike on it so I doubled the plastic straps on the bike and used an additional strap to tie down the wheel and frame.

If I had to drive over bumpy roads or around tons of curves I'd think twice.

We had a bike rack a few years ago that attached to the trunk of our Saturn. I don't remember the brand, only that it was so difficult to use that we only used it a few times.

Now living in the Desert Southwest, we've gotten more into biking and were looking for a rack for our Toyota Prius. We went to sporting goods stores and bike stores only to be told that nothing they had would fit. We did some Internet research and found the Saris. The price was right and the reviews were positive. I was skeptical but we figured we'd try it because we hadn't found any other options.

Well, I've got to tell you that even the very first time we used it, we took only 10 minutes to get two bikes hooked on (and they STAYED on even at highway speeds).

This is a NICE rack. Thanks to all those who reviewed it previously and helped me overcome my skepticism.

I got this because it was pretty cheap and it fits on a ford focus hatchback. It works fine with one full sized mountain bike but I think the 2 bike capacity must be for road/kids bikes. It works fine for short distances but I would not be very comfortable using this on a road trip without having to frequently stop and make adjustments. I also recommend bungee cords in addition to the straps to hold your bike in place.

My vehicle is a 99 Toyota Camry with a spoiler. At first, I was a bit skeptical about whether or not the rack was going to fit around the spoiler. However when I put it on it was about a perfect fit! Despite the fact that the rack only has 4 straps (2 upper and 2 lower), it is very steady.

With one bike attached, the rack handled very well, keeping the speed under 45 mph. Unfortunately, when I took it out to speeds of about 60, I noticed the bike doing a rocking motion. This was probably due to wind turbulence, so I would advise avoiding highways unless you use additional tie-downs for the bike. I also noticed that my bike had a slight tendency to slide back and forth in the brackets when turning.

Overall, I'm very satisfied with the functionality and stability. I recommend it to any bike rider/mountain biker.

I just got back from a trip from Vermont and spent much of my time pulling over to the side of the highway to reattach the plastic straps to keep the bike in place. At higher speeds (many of the highways have a 65 mph speed limit) the wind resistance on the bike caused it to go practically horizontal while in motion. Eventually the plastic strap would detach and the bike was precariously hanging off the rack. I only had one bike on it so I doubled the plastic straps on the bike and used an additional strap to tie down the wheel and frame. That was moderately successful. I stopped in Boston to visit a friend, bought a new Allen two bike rack and tossed this one. The Allen rack had ample strap slack to wrap up the frame and wheels so the bike did not budge when I drove back. Additionally, the Allen rack keeps the bike closer to the car, which I think helped with wind resistance.

If you're driving local, this will work fine. For highway driving, I would look elsewhere.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Gregory A. Wall on August 28, 2009
I bought this rack in order to pick up a bicycle 160 miles away. I went to the Saris web site where they were able to tell me what rack to use for my car. The Sentinal 2-Bike Trunk Mount Rack easily and firmly fit on my 2009 Pontiac G6. My only comment is that I wish it had come with more tie-downs to better immobilize the bike. A couple of over-sized Velcro cable ties worked just fine.

My other concern was whether this rack would scratch the paint on my car. The foam pads did a nice job of protecting the trunk and the plastic coated hooks left no evidence of the rack on the car. The rack easily breaks down to store in its original box. It was a good investment. I'm sure I'll use it again for other long distance trips with my bike.

I bought one of these for a trip down to Austin, TX for South by Southwest, a huge arts/tech/film/music festival in March. I attached it to the car late at night, put two bikes on it, and drove 15 hours on highways. It was completely solid and never even moved. Highly recommended!

I used this rack a couple of times. I have a corolla 2002 which has a spoiler. I have it to carry two specialized rock hopper. Its fits over the spoiler pretty well and is sturdy.

So, I bought this bike rack about 6 months ago. I wanted to get fit, so I bought a bike. However, I didn't feel safe riding it around on the streets, and I wanted to go to the park and ride. I researched bike racks, and finally decided on this one. It fits my car, a Chevy Aveo hatchback, and every other car I have tried it on (Dodge Neon, Kia Rio, Toyota Camry), and it is really secure and strong. I used it all around town with one or two bikes on it, depending on the occasion.

But here's the real thing. In August we moved from Ohio to Nevada, and we wanted to take our bikes. So, we strapped on both of our bikes and headed across the country. We never felt nervous about the bikes, and every couple hundred miles, usually when we needed to get gas, we would tighten the straps. We went through mountains and hit some pretty rough road, and the bikes never moved. This rack is awesome. I would recommend it to anyone who needs a rack.

I take my bike to campus every day, so the rack never comes off of my car. I just keep it, and the bike, on my car 24/7 and it has never, ever been an issue. I even hit a monster pothole the other day, and the rack sort of bounced up and down, but it did not seem like it was going to come off in any way. The only thing I noticed is that the two straps that go down, as opposed to the ones that strap to the sides, sometimes come undone. When you tighten them without the weight of the bike on it, they really aren't tight enough. That being said, I have driven all over town with only the side straps connected and it is still really secure.

After 6 months of really heavy use, the straps are still looking good, and the rack stays in place.
