Choosing the Best Bike Carrier for Electric Scooters: A Comprehensive Guide

With the increasing popularity of electric scooters, finding the right bike carrier for transportation has become a common concern for riders. Not only do they provide a convenient way to carry your scooter, but they also offer the protection and security needed during transit. In this guide, we’ll cover the essential features to look for in a bike carrier suitable for electric scooters.

Type of Bike Carrier

The first consideration is the type of carrier that suits your vehicle and needs. There are generally three types: rooftop carriers, hitch-mounted racks, and trunk-mounted racks. Rooftop carriers can accommodate electric scooters but may require heavy lifting. Hitch-mounted racks are often the most robust and capable of carrying heavier loads like electric scooters, while trunk-mounted racks may be more suitable for lighter models.

Bike Carrier Features

When selecting a bike carrier for your electric scooter, consider the following features:

  • Load Capacity: Ensure the carrier can handle the weight of your electric scooter.

  • Locking Mechanism: For security, choose a model with a reliable locking system to secure your scooter to the rack and the rack to the vehicle.

  • Durability: A sturdy construction, typically steel or aluminum, is key for carrying electric scooters because of their weight.

  • Ease of Use: Look for carriers that offer easy loading and unloading of your scooter, as well as simple installation and detachment from the vehicle.

  • Compatibility: Check that the carrier fits your vehicle and can accommodate the dimensions of your electric scooter.

Top Bike Carrier Recommendations

  • Thule EasyFold XT 2: This hitch-mounted rack is compact, fully foldable, and has a high load capacity, perfect for transporting electric scooters.

  • Yakima HoldUp EVO: This is another hitch-mounted option that's robust and has a heavy-duty construction, ensuring a secure fit for heavy electric scooters.

  • Saris SuperClamp EX 2-Bike: Both light and strong, this hitch-mounted rack features integrated locks and a tilting feature for easy vehicle access.


The best bike carrier for electric scooters is one that offers the perfect balance of security, ease of use, and compatibility with your vehicle and scooter. Always ensure you adhere to the manufacturer's specifications and local regulations while transporting your electric scooter.
