Choosing the Right Towbar for you !

Fixed Flange Ball Towbar

Traditionally used in the UK for all serious forms of towing and generally the most cost effective option. A 50mm towball is bolted to a two or four hole plate (vehicle dependant) that also allows the fitting of a 25mm spacer so that accessories such as a towbar mounted cycle carrier can be used.

  • Tow and carry cycles at the same time (subject to nose load limits)
  • Bumper shields can be fitted
  • AL-KO towballs can be fitted
  • The towing height can be adjusted on commercial and 4x4 four-hole plate towbars
  • A choice of towing couplings and accessories can be fitted

Detachable Flange Towbar

Exclusive to Witter and only recently introduced this version offers all the versatility of a fixed flange bar whilst leaving very little of the towbar visible when detached.

  • Tow and carry cycles at the same time
  • The towball is removed when not in use preserving 'shins'
  • AL-KO towballs can be fitted
  • Won't trigger reversing sensors when not towing
  • A choice of towing couplings and accessories can be fitted

Detachable Swan Neck Towbar

Mainly used in the rest of Europe and slimmer than a flange bar this style was the first to offer a detachable version. Cycle carriers are available for this type of bar but you cannot tow at the same time.

  • Towball is removed when not in use preserving 'shins'
  • Unrestricted access to the boot
  • AL-KO and other friction type stabilisers can be fitted
  • Won't trigger reversing sensors when not towing

Fixed Swan Neck Towbar

Mainly used outside the UK and the least flexible design as no additional accessories can be used. Cycle carriers are available for this type of bar but you cannot tow at the same time.

  • Compatible with AL-KO stabilisers
  • Less likely to trigger reversing sensors
  • Slightly more expensive than the flange towbar
  • Cannot be fitted with a bumper shield
