The EL trailer hitch from Weber: the reliable hitch for hauling

The EL trailer hitch by Weber is a heavier load version of the E trailer hitch. It is only suitable for trailers with a tensile load of up to 80 kg.
The Hitch E / EL by Weber are the most popular bicycle hitches on the market. The reason for this, in addition to the safety that has been proven a thousand times over, is above all the unbeatable ease of use provided by the patented bayonet locking system.
They were developed with the aim of fitting on as many bikes as possible and are mounted on the axle of the rear wheel with the patented polygon fastening system to prevent it from twisting.

Are you unsure which Weber hitch is the right one for your bike? The Weber Hitch Finder helps you to make the right choice.

Note from the manufacturer:

For safety reasons, a safety harness with metal buckle must be fitted to the tow bar when using Hitch E, from model year 2017 onwards. You can order it here as an accessory.
