Reliable purchase, guaranteed to be a good purchase.

Thule installed both trunks in about 30 minutes. But for 3 hours I suffered with the dismantling of the old cheap ones. The fastening nuts were rusted tightly, I was already thinking of cutting it off with a grinder. But the benefit is soaked in a bucket. At one guide that holds the bike, the bolt rotted off, fell off. I do not advise saving, take normal trunks right away. The consequences can be much more expensive.

  • Comfortable. Lungs. Very easy to mount. Everything is thought out.
  • I ordered 2 sets. One was delivered open. The packaging was torn and sealed with tape. Inside everything is intact, but there were no 2 stickers. Looks like the item was resold.

I skated with a trunk all summer, the bike on 29 wheels of size "L" got up without problems, the first time it was scary for the bike, but the next time you even forget about the bike, you rode and 130 km / h nothing fell off and did not whistle (crossbars of the aerodynamic profile ). If you have the skill, the bike is installed on the roof in 2-3 minutes

  • Various mounting options for vehicle crossbars Availability of locks Reliability of fasteners

Wonderful quality, one hundred percent satisfied!

The device is much simpler than it seems from the instructions. How to deal with everything - everything is simple, convenient, reliable. Do not tighten the latches too much - it is harder to open them than to close them. If the car is tall, you need a ladder to put the bike on the roof.

  • -Easily attached to the arc of the trunk with a longitudinal groove. In the kit there is an option for arcs without grooves, but I have not tried this option. -Riding at speeds up to 120 km / h - the bike keeps fine. -Mounting the bike is easy (after you get used to it) -There are additional grooves for puffs on the wheels so that they do not interfere while you install the bike

Terrible product, not happy with the purchase!

50% reliability is still there. I'll start from the beginning. The bike itself is pretty good. Probably one of the best deals on the market today. But there is one significant drawback that can ruin everything. This is the guide mount. Bought 2 bike racks. 1 bike rack reached the destination. At one fastening, the riveting was cut off on the way (see photo). Replaced with a bolt. Arrived okay. Upon arrival, changed all the rivets. Maybe it was just luck that nothing was scratched or broken…

  • Aerodynamics. Strong guides. See below for details.
  • Fasteners (connecting rivets). See below for details.

The bike rack turned out to be really reliable. Forgetting that there are 2 bicycles on the roof of the car, we cheerfully drove into the underground parking. There was a crunch. We immediately remembered bicycles. To our surprise, neither they nor the trunk were damaged. The car was in the garage, and the bikes, attached to the bars with Thule bike racks, sat quietly on the road in front of the garage. Dougie was blown off the rails, and the bikes were still strapped in.

  • Really secure mount

The best thing Ive ever used, a great item for everyone!

"Whistling" of course at speed, but without it, as in my opinion, because there are small elements, such as a wheel fastening belt. Got pros: Excellent, strong mount, the bike holds very well. Easy convenient installation. Take it, you won't regret it. Its cons: The instruction is not clear for the first time I watched the installation video, everything turned out to be as easy as shelling pears.

Excellent quality, absolutely not expected for such a price.

In my opinion, this is one of the best bike racks on the roof in terms of price-quality ratio. It fit without modifications to the original luggage racks from GM on the Astra J car. Installing and removing the bike takes literally 3-5 minutes, provided that the bike is properly fixed when the car is moving, it does not sway, it is held securely.

I didn't expect the quality to be so high.

I buy not the first time. The number of bindings increases with the number of bikes. The only inconvenience is a large number of keys. It is a pity that you can not choose the key number when buying.

The quality is at the level, I am satisfied with everything.

Bought two fasteners. One bike with a 20" frame and the other 22" with 29 wheels. Everything fell into place as it should. Immediately experienced in a trip of 1000 km one way. All the way no problem. The hum appears small after 100 km / h. I drove somewhere 100-110, didn't risk it anymore, everything went great! I recommend to buy.

Just super, it's beautifully made, I'm very happy with it.

I've been using this mount for two seasons now. Mostly in the city. There is a successful experience of transporting a bicycle over a distance of 1000 km on very bad roads: Leningrad - Hong Kong. I use on Lada Vesta SW. The rear bracket, so as not to lose during storage, fixed with a tie to the mount. Worth the money, I recommend.

  • Reliability of the structure as a whole; Ease of installation and dismantling on a car; Corrosion resistance; Good fixation of the bike; Possibility to lock the mount and the bike; Affordable price;
  • The rear bracket is a separate item. It's easy to lose.

I use it in conjunction with the Thule "WingBar Edge" trunk, it is fastened tightly - you can't tear it out with a tug. I see no reason to overpay for proride, outride and other models.

  • Easy to install, austere design although I don't know if this applies to bike racks, low price for thule products.
  • I took the mount in the es-auto. Ru store, there was no living space on the box . however, there are no complaints about the product.

A really necessary purchase, Im glad I found this product.

At first they carried bicycles in a semi-disassembled form in the trunk of a crossover. But peeped at friends this model. Many people use it. Everyone is happy.

  • Excellent trunk. Much better than 2022 counterparts
  • Pretty thin rivets on the bar. If the bike is heavy, it can get loose. There have already been precedents for this particular model. But everything is easily repaired and already for a year!

The best price for such a product, I will buy more!

Accelerated with a bike on the roof up to 130 km / h (restriction according to the passport of the device) - the bike is perfectly fixed

  • The mount does not cover the license plates; easy to mount on the roof; lockable crossbar attachment and separate bike rack. Thule's workmanship is always top notch. Any accessory is convenient and pleasant to use.
  • The fork that holds the frame is not fixed in the folded position

The best thing I've ever used, I recommend it to everyone!

Got pros: Not difficult to install, good quality, stood up like a native on the arcs of Turtle Air 1 on Tiguan 1 restyling 2022gv. Got cons: Price, especially now (June 2022) - I took 2 pieces. It's a bit tricky to snap off the mount, especially if you have a crossover, you are not tall and you have to use a small stool :D

The best purchase in my life, I will definitely buy it again.

I rode with bikes on the roof to Hong Kong from Msk. At a speed of more than 110, it’s hard with bikes on the roof, it starts to storm, and so everything is top. But it's all . I have a wife with a great on the roof went to the garage. And there, at the entrance, there was a pipe from above, so that all sorts of gazelles would not go, well, in general, she forgot about it and with a bicycle right on the pipe, there were two mounts, one was large. So the whole structure, flying off the roof from

  • Very strong. Just the strongest.
