As is normal from Thule the build quality of this carrier is excellent, solid, durable, and will likely last for many years to come. Fitting is simple, and it has a very easy system to move the carrier from one side of your vehicle to the other, an excellent feature which will make use even more convenient. This is an example of the constant small improvements that Thule make to their products, which makes them one of the leaders in the market.

The rear wheel ratchet strap secures your bike solidly and the UpRide includes locks for both the bike and carrier, which are key matchable, as is the norm now from Thule.

This carrier is perfect for carbon bikes, and bikes with non traditional frame designs or rear suspension. It can accommodate bikes of all shapes and sizes, with adjustments to fit 20"-29" wheels and tire widths up to 3" (5" with UpRide Fatbike Adapter). It does have its limits though, it isn't suitable for most electric bikes as its upper weight capacity is limited to 20kg.

  • No bike frame contact is made as the hook securely grabs the front wheel.
  • Suitable for bikes with carbon frames.
  • Versatile design accommodates bikes with non-traditional frame designs, rear suspension, and bottle cages.
  • Simple interface for switching carrier from one side of your car to the other.
  • Ratcheting wheel strap quickly secures back wheel to tray.
  • Fits most 20 – 29” wheel bicycles with tires up to 3 wide (up to 5” with Thule UpRide Fatbike Adapter, sold separately).
  • Maximum bike weight up to 20kg.
  • Locks the bike to the bike rack and the bike rack to the roof racks (locks included).
