Just incase, you are wondering, this is why the Sport Rider SE for Electric Biokes, is the best car racks for electric bike racks:

Did you know, that the average weight of eBikes on the market is 52lb - almost twice the average weight of a standard bike! Hoisting over 50 lbs of metal can make loading and unloading a formidable task, which is where the low height of these platform racks comes into play. A lower rack makes it much easier to get your bikes on and off the rack. (Pro Tip: if your electric bike weighs more than 60 lb, you can reduce the weight by removing the battery and carrying the battery inside the car.)

Also, electric bikes are available in a wide rage of bike styles, from a step-through city bike to a full-suspension fat tire bike. In addition, the battery position varies between down tube, rear rack, and seat tube, which may shift the center to be, well...not so center. Both of these variables are best accounted for by carrying the bikes by the wheels. Doing so provides the most stable, flexible offering that accommodates all of these different bike configurations.

So what do you do when you have a heavy ebike?

- Capacity: Two Bikes (Max. 80 lbs per bike)
- Hitch Size: 2” only
- Maximum bike wheelbase: 60”
- Maximum tire width: 3”

Well, the total weight allowed in the hitch has to account for both the bikes and the rack itself. But rest assured, that this particular rack is only made for 2" hitches. So, if you are gonna buy this rack, make sure that you have the correct hitch size.
