Founded by people with a passion for off-roading and riding bikes, Rig’d Supply is a company that offers both of those worlds some quality gear. Headquartered in Orange, California, their latest offering is the RambleSwing, a heavy-duty swing-out hitch adapter that reflects the company’s two passions in a nice, neat package.
The Rig’d RambleSwing is a swing-out hitch rack accessory that was tailor-made for vehicles with a rear-mounted, full-size spare tire like the Jeep Wrangler and Ford Bronco.
It will work with any hitch-stye bike rack you may have and will add the utility of being able to swing it away from the vehicle to access the vehicle’s rear cargo area.
The RambleSwing became available back in the Fall of 2023. It’s burly, with a purposely over-engineered design made to withstand the heaviest bikes on the harshest trails. Boasting a 300lb weight limit, this means the heaviest eBike will be supported.
It’s compatible with all 2″ hitch-mounted bike racks, but Rig’d prefers that you pair it with their bike rack, the RambleRack. The Rig’d RambleSwing has some handy and unique features.
Rig’d RambleSwing Features
In-Line-Design: The RambleSwing’s in-line design creates a stiff connection between the two arms, sandwiched by a set of Delrin glide plates to help with easy closure.
FlipFlop™ Technology: “FlipFlop” technology allows the user to swing it open to the left (driver side) or right (passenger side) by simply flipping the swing over. This could come in handy if the rack blocks your exhaust pipe on one side but not the other.
Wobble-Free™: The adapter features the same wobble-free wedge system as their UltraSwing to eliminate movement in the vehicle’s hitch.
The Ultimate Latch: They use a patented bike-grip handled 500 lb compression latch.
Integrated Step: RambleSwing also features an integrated step on both sides, adding convenience when you need easy access to your truck, van, or SUV.
Battleship Grip: On the integrated step Rig’d utilizes a super-durable Jessup grip tape. This type of tape was originally developed for use on the decks of battleships.
Made in the USA: The Ramble Swing is completely rebuildable with all pieces available to repair and is backed by their Ramble for Life Warranty
I recently spoke with Luke over at Rig’d, and since they are local to me, I will be picking up a RambleSwing to review on my Jeep Wrangler JL. I’ll be reviewing it while using my Rocky Mounts Guide Rail. After that, I will follow it up with a review of their RambleRack with the 2-Bike Pivot system. Stay tuned here for my first impressions of the RambleSwing in the next week or so.
