Does it fold up for storage: Yes, the rack folds up small enough to fit into the back of most cars, even if the boot is full and it has a handle above the tow ball clamp to enable an easy vertical lift when installing it on the vehicle.

Pros: A heavy-duty e-bike rated rack that should be able to handle anything you can throw at it.
Cons: These racks are strong but this strength does come with a bit of a weight penalty. You'll need to make sure that your bike and the clamps are super clean before you mount the bike or it may damage the finish as you drive. Also, be careful that you don't do up the clamps to tight when mounting carbon frames. Carbon does not resist crushing forces well.
