The best and most convenient roof mounted bike carrier on the market – for bikes up to 20 kg. The uniquely designed frame holder and the wheel tray automatically position the bike to the correct place allowing it to rest securely against the frame holder while securing it. The convenient height of the turning knob makes the final tightening quick and easy. The only roof mounted bike carrier on the market with a capacity to carry bikes up to 20 kg. Fits bike frames up to 100mm (oval 80x100mm, round 22-80mm). Quick-release straps with wheel protection hold the wheels securely in place (adjustable for different wheel sizes). Can easily be fitted on either side of the car roof. This carrier is pre-assembled, no tools are required. Lockable - bike to bike carrier, bike carrier to load carrier (locks included). T-track adapters (20x20mm) are included for mounting on Thule WingBar Edge, Thule WingBar, Thule SlideBar, and Thule AeroBar. Fulfils the City Crash norm.

Like other Thule products, this is top quality equipment and once installed on roof bars, fitting the bikes is a doddle. The rack is adjustable to fit a wide range of bike sizes.
Others have commented on the packaging and the rack is in a strong cardboard box, probably more sutable for sale in a shop than mail order, but it's hard to imagine a vendor unpacking the box and repacking it with bubble wrap or something similar. The keys are in a little slot on the rack, but the box has push-out holes to form handles and the loss of keys another reviewer experienced is a problem waiting to happen. Sandicliffe Shop did wrap mine in strong polythene, making it much less likely and mine arrived quickily and in good condition.
The instructions are the usual Thule diagrams which you either understand or you don't. Happily for those of us who don't, there are videos on youtube showing how the job is done. It's fiddly but not difficult, once you know how.
Other reviewers have mentioned the locks which are the standard Thule type. I think they probably deter people from stealing roof bars simply because wrecking them defeats the point of stealing them. Bearing in mind that even bike locks costing as much as this rack are regularly defeated by experienced thieves, expecting Thule cylinder locks to keep a bike safe is probably unrealistic.
Otherwise the product description on Amazon is clear and accurate so I've not commented on those features.
Why four stars? The clamp has v shaped jaws but even so, on oval frame tube, they hold the bike only by tangential contact gripping acoss the widest part of the tube. The number of warnings in the instruction book and an additional label saying that the tube must be placed centrally in the clamp suggest this has been a source of problems, Clearly there is a risk that if not centralised and with limited contact, the bike could become dangerously loose in motion. (I have another bike holder with a very clever offset system for the jaws that holds oval tubes across the narow dimension, unlike this Thule).Read more ›
Choosing a compatible roof-rack can be problematic. I found micksgarage to have the best priced racks and they gave excellent advice on suitability.
It's important to tighten the wheel straps when not in use as otherwise the wheel mounts might slide off and be lost. I've light 'cruz' plastic mudguards on my bike and I found it necessary to tie the rear ends of the guards to the wheels to prevent them vibrating to smithereens while on the car. The jaws of the bike clamp have a clever and easily accessible release button. It has a little curve in it that might suggest this is the direction it needs to be pushed to operate but it's actually the other way. This is no big deal if you remember that it takes very little effort to operate this release button even if the jaws have been over-tightened.
I must put a note on my dash reminding me of the increased height clearance required - it's nearly 3 metres on my car with a bike mounted.
Other reviewers gave given good advice by noting:
- don't regard this unit or it's included locks as an effective anti-theft device.
- there is surprisingly little windage noise (barely noticeable at 100 kph).
