Thule Bike Racks

With a Thule car bike rack, take your bikes anywhere you want – quickly, easily, and safely. Let us help you find the ideal one.

The hang-on bike carrier is the most cost-effective option as this type of bike rack is generally a more straight forward design. The method of fixing to the towball is more basic than the ride on type as well, it uses either the 'scissor' design to clamp the ball extremely tightly or a type of bolt which needs to be tightened onto the towball.

The Ride-on type of Thule bike rack is a very convenient way of carrying cycles, the wheels are placed or in runners or trays and locked down with simple wheel straps and pump buckles. The bike frames are then either strapped to the centre carriers frame or using the adjustable arms, depending on the design or carrier.

Some models of the ride on cycle carries can also accommodate e-bikes, fatbikes as well as small children's bikes.

A summary of the Thule bike racks is given below.

Thule HangOn Bike Racks
The HangOn range of cycle racks offers a quick and easy way of transporting standard framed bikes by simply hanging them on this rack. Rubber coated frame holders keep the bikes firmly in place while protecting the frames from scratches and marks. The Thule Bike Frame Adapter 982 can be added to be able to carry non-standard frames like ladies bikes, BMXs and downhill bikes. These racks also fold flat for easy storage, compact enough to be kept in the boot of the car.

Thule VeloSpace XT Bike Rack
This is a truly all-round bike rack developed for large and heavy bikes – such as e-bikes, fatbikes, and downhill mountain bikes – it works just as well for city bikes and children's bikes. This carrier has a high load capacity, extra-large distance between the bikes, and extended aluminium wheel trays together with flexible pump buckles and extra-long wheel straps. The bikes can be locked to the bike rack and the bike rack can be locked to the car. You can always access the boot of your car by tilting the bike rack, even with your bikes mounted.

Thule EasyFold XT
This cycle carrier safely carries your bikes to any destination, but when folded it's no bigger than a normal suitcase and can be conveniently stowed away in your car or at home. Fitting the rack to your car and loading your bikes couldn't be simpler thanks to a range of user-friendly features. The mounting on the towbar requires minimum effort thanks to the innovative coupling and securing the rack to the car is a breeze. Once your bikes are loaded, the boot will still be accessible thanks to the smart tilting mechanism. This durable and high-capacity bike rack can transport all sorts of bikes, from light road bikes to mountain bikes, e-bikes, or even fat bikes.

Thule VeloCompact bike rack
This is a robust yet lightweight bike rack that safely carries up to four bikes. It will be the ideal choice whether you want to transport road bikes or mountain bikes, or both. If you need to carry bikes with wider wheelbase, the extendable wheel holders make it easy to adjust the Width. Once Thule VeloCompact is mounted and with bikes loaded, you still have access to your car's boot thanks to the smart foot pedal tilt.

We usually have all these cycle racks on display at our branches in Exeter and Newton Abbot in Devon.
