Mainly used outside the UK and the least flexible design as no additional accessories can be used. Cycle carriers are available for this type of bar but you cannot tow at the same time.

  • Compatible with AL-KO stabilisers
  • Less likely to trigger reversing sensors
  • Slightly more expensive than the flange towbar
  • Cannot be fitted with a bumper shield

The latest type of towbar is the retractable towbar. These offer the same advantages as the detachable towbar. Furthermore, it is no longer necessary to store the detached towball in the boot, because it retracts under the bumper

Traditionally used in the UK for all serious forms of towing and generally the most cost effective option. A 50mm towball is bolted to a two or four hole plate (vehicle dependant) that also allows the fitting of a 25mm spacer so that accessories such as a towbar mounted cycle carrier can be used.

  • Tow and carry cycles at the same time (subject to nose load limits)
  • Bumper shields can be fitted
  • AL-KO towballs can be fitted
  • The towing height can be adjusted on commercial and 4x4 four-hole plate towbars
  • A choice of towing couplings and accessories can be fitted
