Accessories: Portilo/BC60 - the bicycle carrier in a class of its own

As one of the leading manufacturers of towbars, the Westfalia name stands for quality, safety and innovation.

The towbar mounted BC60 two bicycle carrier meets the requirements of modern cycle transport:

The most compact bicycle carrier on the market

  • 58 W x 22 H x 69 B cm (folded) – this is the new measurement for bicycle carriers. No other is as compact.
  • That means: the Portilo is completely space-saving and easy to store anywhere: in the boot, in the garage, in the basement, in the hotel room or wherever there's a small gap.

Perfect comfort when handling and fitting

  • No assembly of individual parts: can be used straight out of the box.
  • Thanks to its compact size the carrier can be comfortably attached to a roll bar and carried to a passenger car.
  • Damage to the car's paintwork is avoided due to the easy handling and optimal access to the tow bar during assembly.
  • One hand movement is enough: simply attach, then tighten with the minimum of effort – even for older cycling enthusiasts.
  • The folding function allows access to the boot even with the carrier and bicycles attached.
  • Less effort required to lift the bicycles onto the carrier than with roof or rear carriers.
  • Suitable for all current bicycle types.

Highest payload of all bicycle carriers

  • The maximum: 60 kg, making it suitable for two heavy electric bicycles.

Highest safety

  • High safety and quality standards from extensive tests in accordance with the demands of legislators and car manufacturers.
  • Anti-theft security for carrier and bicycles with a single key.
  • Adjustment possible: perfect hold even on worn-out tow bars.

Elegant design

  • Timeless beauty that's suitable for every car type.
  • Easy optics through open lighting wings.
  • An overall look that's harmonious thanks to the curved shape using the lights and registration plate as elements of its style.
