Witter Towbars have announced the launch of what is believed to be the world’s first automatic flange detachable towbar system.

Clamps are available to upgrade existing cycle carriers, part number ZX98/S.
Holds 2 to 3 cycles (upgradable to carry 4 cycles)(3)
Tow and carry cycles at the same time(3)
Complete with 3 pairs of cycle attachment clamps and a “bungee” cord with hooks to secure wheels.
Several models will soon be available covering the majority of popular vehicles – including those with rear door mounted spare wheels.
