The Thule Freeride Locks the bike to the bike rack and the bike rack to the roof racks (locks included). The wheel straps are adjustable to fit different diameter wheels/tyres and the frame clamp fits most common diameter frame tubes. Comes supplied with all the fittings required to fit onto Thule Square or Wing Bars.

Thule ProRide 598

Thule ProRide 598 roof mounted cycle carrier

For speed, convenience and ease of use, the Thule Proride is hard to beat. It locates your bike in the correct position with the unique wheel tray and frame holder. And the claws extended lower jaw helps to prevent the bike from falling when securing it to the rack. Pressure on the frame is evenly spread via the pads and the torque limiter dial prevents over tightening and reduces the risk of frame damage. With included locks the rack secures the bike, and also the rack to the roofbar system to deter theft. Designed to fit most common frame sizes and bikes up to 20kg in weight. The ProRide 598 also comes pre-assembled in the box so is ready to load and go.

Still simple to use and designed to transport bikes up to 20kg and with frame dimensions of circular profile tubes measuring between 22-70mm diameters and will fit frames with oval tubes measuring a maximum of 70-100mm. If you need to remove the 598B from the roof bar system, or locating the bike rack on either side of the vehicle, Thule have designed it to be simple to achieve (providing you have the key to the lock!). Already built, the ProRide 598B is ready to fit straight out the box. (Thule Adaptor required if fitting on square profile bars without T-Track)

Thule EasyFold XT 2 / XT 3

Thule Easy Fold XT2

The Easyfolds from Thule are based on the Velocompact design, but with a much higher carrying capacity to cater for the ever-growing E-Bike market. The bikes are loaded onto the rack at a low level and secured by wheel straps and lockable arms which feature torque limiters, so a tight, secure fit can be achieved without the risk of over tightening. When removed, the rack folds flat for ease of storage and handling and has integrated carry handles. When fully loaded the entire rack can be tilted to allow boot access utilising the smart foot tilt pedal system. The Easyfolds are supplied fully assembled so are easy to install with minimal fuss. As expected, each bike can be separately locked to the rack, and the entire rack is lockable (keys and locks supplied with the rack).

Thule FreeWay 968

Thule FreeWay  968

A lightweight, basic bike rack, designed for hatchbacks and with the scope to transport 3 bikes (max. capacity of 45kg).

Bikes are held in place using adjustable straps that fit a range of different frame diameters. For non-standard frames such as BMX’s, Ladies or Downhill bikes a Thule Adaptor 982 should be used. This style of bike carrier when loaded will probably obscure the vehicles reg. plate and/or lights, so a Thule Lightboard 976 will be required. Please also note that the Freeway 976 won’t fit every vehicle, so please check using Thule’s buyer guide before purchasing: Thule Buyers Guide
