Volvo XC90: Starting and driving / Loading the bicycle holder

The greater the distance between the load and the bicycle holder, the greater the load on the hitch and on the vehicle.

Keep the following points in mind:

  • Mount the heaviest bicycle closest to the vehicle.
  • If possible, mount the bicycles symmetrically, as close as possible to the center of the vehicle.
  • Remove loose objects from the bicycle, such as baskets, batteries or child seats. This will help reduce the load on the hitch and the bicycle holder.
  • Do not place a cover over the bicycle as this could lead to increased load on the hitch.
