The maximum permitted load on a bicycle carrier mounted on the ball coupling is 80 kg at a distance of 300 mm. This distance refers to the gap between the centre of gravity of the bicycle carrier (complete with bicycles) and the middle of the ball coupling.

WARNING

Incorrect use of the towing bracket with a bicycle carrier fitted to the ball coupling could cause injuries and accidents.

NOTICE

Considerable vehicle damage could occur if the maximum permitted payload or distance is exceeded.
