Pivoting Arms with Ratcheting Hooks

Thule T2 Pro X ratcheting wheel hooks

The T2 Pro X has ratcheting hooks that grab your bikes firmly by the front wheel, so it won't scratch or scuff the paint. To load a bike, simply place your front wheel in the cradle, rotate the arm up and over the wheel, and press down firmly on the ratcheting hook. To unload your bike, press the gray button on the upright arm to release the ratcheting hook, and slide the hook up.

Sliding Rear Wheel Cradles

Thule T2 Pro X sliding wheel trays

The wheel trays have cradles with ratcheting straps to secure your rear wheel to the rack. The cradles slide along the tray to accommodate bikes with a variety of wheelbases. To secure your wheel, run the strap over the rim and back down through the strap buckle and pull tight. To remove your bike, press the quick-release button on the buckle and undo the strap.

Front-Mounted Handle for Easy Tilting and Folding

Thule T2 Pro X folding and tiliting designThule T2 Pro X cable locks

The rack tilts down with your bikes loaded. So, whether you're at the trail or the grocery store, you don't have to remove your bikes to access your cargo area. It also folds up when not in use. This leaves a smaller footprint, so you can keep the rack on your vehicle to park in your garage. And if you want to remove it, it doesn't take up as much space to store it.

Thule T2 Pro X folding and tiliting design

To make tilting and folding easier, the T2 Pro X's release lever is mounted on the front of the rack. This means you won't have to reach through or around your bikes with one hand to reach the lever, while supporting the rack's weight with the other, when lowering the rack. Instead, you'll be able to hold the rack with both hands the entire time.

Tool-Free Installation with Anti-Rattle Device

Thule T2 Pro X cable locksThule T2 Pro X cable locks

The rack quickly installs in your hitch receiver, without the need for tools. Just slide the shank into your hitch and turn the knob until snug. Turning the knob deploys an anti-rattle wedge in the shank to help take play out of the hitch connection. It also sets the integrated SnugTite hitch pin into place, securing the rack to your receiver.

Thule T2 Pro X reflectors

The lock on the hand knob secures the rack to your vehicle. Once locked, the hand knob will spin freely so a would-be thief can't operate it to remove the rack from your hitch. Thule One Key System locks (sold separately) can be used to secure your bikes to the rack. Additional cores let you make all your Thule products keyed alike.

Thule T2 Pro X Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount - TH83GC

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (6 Customer Reviews)

This 2-bike rack is perfect for carrying electric bikes and bikes with carbon frames or custom paint jobs. Trays adjust side to side, so you can customize spacing between bikes for best fit. Tilts with bikes loaded for cargo area access.


High quality. Love the easy access handle for tilting up and down. Tightens into receiver hitch, keeping the bikes very stable. It comes with one lock for the receiver hitch. Wish there were two more, one for each bike. The mechanism is there, but no locks.



Still love it. Use regularly, and it still looks and performs like new. Worth every penny!


Works great, easy to use, secure with locking mechanism so I don't have to worry about it wandering off. Worth the money.

  • Can Thule T2 Pro X Be Converted to Carry 4 Bikes
    You can convert your Thule T2 Bike Rack part # TH917XTR to basically be a TH9044 by simply replacing the shank and backbone assembly of your current rack with a # 753-3581. Then you'd be able to install the add-on part # TH9046 to convert it to a 4 bike rack.

  • Expansion Kits for Thule T2 Pro X Platform Style Hitch Racks
    There are multiple versions of the Thule T2 platform style hitch bike racks. If you have the Thule T2 Pro X # TH83GC then this cannot be installed onto another # TH83GC. In this rack you need to use the special lightweight expansion piece # TH55GC which is much lighter than the actual weight of rack so it is too heavy for use as an extension. In general bike rack add-on expansion kits will use light construction than their similar but independent rack counterparts.

  • 2-Bike Add-On Expansion Kit for Thule TH83GC 2-Bike Hitch Rack
    My contact at Thule confirmed that you can indeed use the 2 Bike Add-On for Thule T2Pro X # TH55GC along with your 2-bike base rack model # TH83GC. They are fully compatible.

  • Is a Thule T2 Pro X Platform Rack and Draw Tite Max Hitch good for a 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon?
    This combination is a great fit for the 2016 Outback. The Draw Tite Max Frame, part # 75673 will give a strong base for pulling a number of things including the bicycles and the Thule T2 Pro X Bike Platform Rack, part # TH83GC will provide a good base for multiple bikes. Additionally, you can expand the T2 Pro X by adding an expansion kit, part # TH55GC, which allows for 4 bikes to be carried rather than just two.

  • Can the Thule T2 Pro X Still Be a Tilting Rack for Access with the 2-Bike Extension and Bikes Loaded
    Yes, when you add-on the 2 extra bikes with the Thule T2 Pro # TH83GC to the 2-bike Extension # TH55GC you will still be able to tilt the rack down to gain entry to the hatch. I spoke to my Thule representative and he told me that although you can do it that they don't typically recommend it since the bikes and the rack can weight up to 200lbs going up as well as coming down, which is quite a bit of weight to support for just one person. This is really a two-person job.

  • Can I Use The Thule T2 Pro XT On A 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser
    Yes, the Thule T2 Pro XT can work on your 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser. Unfortunately, you will have to get an additional item for it to work. You will need to add a hitch extender to use this hitch bike rack. I recommend the RockyMounts Hitch Extender w/ Hitch Pin and Lock - 2" Hitches - 8" Long, part # RKY10008. It will adds 8" of length of your trailer hitch receiver. But keep in mind, whenever you add a hitch extender, you reduce the maximum tongue weight and the maximum gross trailer weight...

  • Does Replacement Locking Ratchet Arm Assembly 753-3579 Fit 29 inch Wheel Size
    Yes, the Thule replacement arm part # 753-3579 does work with 29 inch wheels as it's a replacement part for the Thule T2 part # TH83GC which can be used on bike wheel sizes that are between 20 and 29 inches.

  • Largest Tire Size That Fits Thule T2 Pro X Bike Rack
    The largest tire size your bike can be - without the fat tire adapter - is 3 inches for the Thule bike rack you asked about, which is the following part number: - Thule T2 Pro X Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # TH83GC That said, the largest tire size the T2 Pro X # TH83GC can fit is 5 inches if you get the Fat Tire Adapter Kit for Thule Pro X Platform-Style Bike Rack # TH97YC. So, just to oversimplify - max 3 inch wide tires for standard T2 Pro X, max 5 inch wide tires for T2 Pro X with Fat Tire...

  • How to Use Thule T2 Bike Rack While Towing R-Pod Camper
    I may have a solution for you, however you will not be able to use the Swagman Straddler # S80503 referenced in your question with your Thule T2 Pro X Class Bike Rack # TH83GC. The primary reason for this is that the Thule T2 Bike Rack is simply not rated for use on a trailer. Because a bike rack mounted on a trailer will be subjected to greater bounce and movement compared to that of a standard passenger vehicle, only certain bike racks are tested and approved for this use. As you also...

  • Comparing the Thule T2 and Yakima HoldUp Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Racks for a 2011 Mazda CX-9
    Bike racks are not vehicle specific there are just some that vehicle owners purchase more often for certain vehicles than others. Since you have a 2 inch trailer hitch on your 2011 Mazda CX-9, you can use the Yakima HoldUp, # Y02443. The Thule T2, # TH83GC will also fit. I have linked video reviews of both racks for you. The Holdup has a capacity of 60 pounds per bike and the T2 has a 50 pound per bike capacity. The HoldUp will accept 14 to 29 inch bike wheels. The T2 will accept 20 to...

  • Can 2 Bike Add-On Be Used With T2 Pro X for 1-1/4 Hitches?
    The reason the 2 Bike Add-On # TH55GC is recommended only for the T2 Pro X for 2" Hitches # TH83GC is because of the differences between Class I, II, and III hitches. Class I 1-1/4" hitches can only hold up to 2 bikes. Not so much because of the weight capacity but more because of the angle and leverage issues of more than two bikes. The add-on is designed for the 2" version # TH83GC and not the 1-1/4" version # TH23GC to prevent people from accidentally loading their Class I hitch with...

  • Will Thule T2 2 Bike 916XTR Work with Fat Tire Bikes
    I do have an option for you but the Thule T2 2 Bike 916XTR is not compatible with fat tire bikes as there aren't any adapters for this rack. Therefore, you'll need to upgrade to the Thule T2 Pro X Bike Rack for 2 Bikes part # TH83GC with Fat Tire Adapter Kit for Thule Pro X Platform-Style Bike Rack part # TH97YC if you wish to carry fat tire bikes.

  • Will Thule T2 Pro X or Another Platform Bike Rack Fit a 2011 Lexus RX 350
    The Thule T2 Classic # TH9044-TH9046 will clear the rear of your 2011 Lexus RX 350 when down in the carrying position. But when folded up it will likely not fit. It measures 4-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest rail when folded. This is not enough to clear the bumper on your RX 350. I found that the hitches we have installed on this vehicle measure between 4-1/2 and 5-1/2 inches from the center of the pin hole back to clear the bumper. For an option that will...

  • Replacement Keys For A Thule T2 Bike Rack
    Yes, we do offer replacement keys for Thule bike racks but prior to ordering you will need to identify the key number from your remaining key or from the lock core on your T2. For example if your key number is N2874 the replacement key you will need is the # THKEYN2874. If you have a different key number you will need to enter the replacement key number in the search box. If you're not able to decipher the number on your key or lock core, you will need to replace the locks with part...

  • Using the Tailgate of a Truck With a Platform Bike Rack Installed
    It will depend a little bit on the design of the individual truck, however the tilt-away feature of the Thule T2 Pro Xbike rack, part # TH83GC gives it quite a bit of range away from most vehicles but I can't guarantee it will clear your tailgate. I've included a video review of of this rack for you to see how the tilt-away works. You can add locks to the T2 Pro X with part # TH450200, a two-lock OneKey Cylinder that will allow you to key the T2 alike with all of your other Thule accessories.

  • Recommended Bike Rack for a Front Mounted Hitch
    The Thule T2 Pro X Bike Rack item # TH83GC doesn't have the strength to be rated for a front mount hitch. The folding point isn't strong enough plus it raises the bike rack up quite a bit. This is a great feature that almost all bike racks have but it puts the rack and bike into your sight line on a front hitch. Additionally, not all bike racks are rated for being used on a front hitch which is why this data isn't out there. I recommend the Hollywood Racks RV Rider Bike Rack item # HLY64FR....

  • Recommended bike Rack For Heavy E-Bikes On A 2022 Subaru Forester
    The Thule T2 Pro X Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # TH83GC would be a fit for your 2022 Subaru Forester's 2" receiver tube, but it only has a 50lb per bike capacity. With most e-bikes being around 60-80lbs you might have a hard time transitioning to an e-bike without having to purchase another bike rack. Instead I recommend the Hollywood Racks RV Rider Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # HLY64FR. This bike rack has an 80lb per bike capacity and wheel hoops that are designed to fit tire widths up...

  • Best Hitch Mounted Bike Rack For Carrying 2 Bikes Off-Road
    I recommend the Yakima StageTwo Bike Rack # Y47VR as being the best for carrying 2 bikes while off-roading in the desert. This rack is capable of carrying 2 bikes weighing up to 42lbs each while being used off-road. The design of this rack makes it great for off-road use as the carrier angles up away from your tow vehicle giving you increased departure angle. This will reduce the chances of the rack dragging when on rocks and hills. The Kuat NV 2.0, Sherpa and Piston Pro specifically...

  • Solution for Thule DoubleTrack Bike Rack to Carry Wider Tire than 3 inch
    We do not carry any longer straps for the Thule DoubleTrack that you have. All we'd have are the same length you have now. Your bike rack can carry bikes with up to a 3 inch tire width. For a new bike rack the Thule T2 Pro X # TH83GC is a really nice option. On it's own it can support bikes that have tire widths of up to 3 inches, but with the fat tire adapter kit # TH97YC it can accommodate tires up to 5 inches. Its ratcheting hooks secure the bikes by the front wheels without any frame...

  • Comparing Thule T2 Pro X vs Thule T2 Pro XTR
    The Thule T2 Pro X # TH83GC carries 2 bikes, has a hitch lock but the bike locks are sold separately. It carries bikes up to 50 pound with a max tire width of 3 inches. The distance from the hitch pin to the closest part of the rack is 6-3/4 inches. It fits tires with a wheel diameter of 20" to 29" and with a maximum wheelbase distance of 49 inches. It offers a 2-bike add-on with part # TH55GC. You can buy the rack and add-on together with part # TH26ZE if you think you might carry...

  • Comparing Kuat Sherpa 2.0 and Thule T2 Pro X Bike Racks
    I recommend the Thule T2 Pro X # TH83GC over the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 # SH22B - there really isn't much of a contest between these two. The Sherpa 2.0 definitely looks prettier, but it falls behind to the T2 Pro X on most categories when it comes to fitment with bikes. The only thing the Sherpa 2.0 really has on the T2 Pro X is the integrated cable locks but if you add the Thule Lock Core Kit # TH450200 so the ratcheting arms can be locked. Here is a breakdown of the key features I'm looking...

  • Is The Thule T2 Pro X Compatible With Any Ramps For Heavy E-Bikes?
    I took a look at what we have for the Thule T2 Pro X Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # TH83GC, however there actually isn't an option to use a ramp with this bike rack. Instead, to use a ramp you'd have to use an entirely different bike rack. If you're interested in this option, I recommend taking a look at the: -Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches # BA22B, with the ramp # ANVBRB. This ramp will slide directly into the Kuat NV 2.0, and provide an easy loading solution for heavy...
