Thule ProRide XT Installed On Car

The ProRide XT lets you transport 1 fat bike by the frame on your roof rack. It's lighter and easier to load than most roof-mount bike racks, and it installs quickly on most crossbars with the included hardware. A padded clamp with a torque limiter knob grips your bike by the downtube without over-tightening, and sliding wheel cradles accommodate bikes of different lengths. You can also add One-Key System locks to secure your bike and the rack.

Easy-To-Load Design

Thule ProRide XT Installation

The ProRide XT is extremely easy to load. Simply set your bike on the rack, position the clamp around the base of the downtube, and tighten the clamp with the torque-limiting dial. Secure the wheels to the cradles with the ratcheting straps.

Padded Clamp with Torque Limiter

Thule ProRide XT Padded Clamp

The clamp has soft, flexible TPE pads that grip your bike by the downtube. These pads conform to the shape of your bike's frame so that pressure is distributed evenly around the tube. The lower jaw has an extension that stabilizes your bike during the loading process.

Thule ProRide XT Torque-Limiiting Dial

Use the torque limiter dial located at the base of the arm to tighten the clamp. The dial limits the amount of torque you can put on the clamp to help prevent over-tightening that can damage your bike's frame. You will hear a click when you've reached optimal pressure. Push the gray button on the knob to release the clamp so you can remove your bike from the rack.

Thule Frame Protector

If you have a bike with a carbon frame you can use a frame protector (sold separately) to carry your bike on the rack. The frame protector has a soft rubber liner that distributes pressure over a large surface area so your bike doesn't get scratched or damaged.

Folding Arm

Thule ProRide XT Arm Folded Down

The clamp arm can be mounted on either side of the rack so you can load your bike from the driver's- or passenger's-side of your vehicle. The arm also folds down when not in use to increase overhead clearance and to allow the rack to remain installed when parking in a garage or other area with a low ceiling.

Sliding Wheel Cradles

Thule ProRide XT Sliding Wheel Cradles

The front- and rear-wheel cradles slide along the wheel tray to accommodate bikes of different lengths. Both cradles have a ratcheting strap that secures diagonally across the bike wheels. This creates more surface contact and improves stability when compared with standard cradle straps. To undo the straps simply press the quick-release buttons. You can also remove the extra-long wheel straps and replace them with the included short straps to transport a standard size bike.

Easy Installation

Thule ProRide XT T-Channel Installation

The rack can be mounted to your crossbar T-tracks or clamp on for installation with no tools required. To install the rack using the T-tracks, just insert the short T-bolts into the bottom of the rack, slide the T-bolts into the channels on your crossbars, and tighten them down using the cam-action levers.

Thule ProRide XT Clamp-On Installation

You can also clamp the rack around your crossbars. Simply set the rack on your crossbars, slide the long T-bolts into the open ends of the mounting brackets, and tighten down the cam-action levers.

Optional Locks

You can add One-Key System lock cylinders (sold separately) to the torque limiter to lock your bike to the rack and to the clamp to lock the rack to your vehicle. These lock cylinders can be swapped out to make all of your Thule accessories keyed alike.

  • Availability of Thule Big Mouth Longer Strap for Fat Tire Bikes
    I have a solution for you carrying your fat tire bike. Unfortunately, my contact at Thule told me that Thule does not make a wheel strap adapter for the Big Mouth rack to accommodate fat tire bikes. Although the Big Mouth Roof Mounted Bike Rack wheel straps will fit most bike wheel and tire sizes, the larger fat bike tires are too large for the wheel straps to connect. I recommend that you consider the Thule ProRide XT Roof Bike Rack For Fat Bikes, # TH598004-FB. The Thule ProRide XT...

  • Can Thule ProRide XT for Fat Bikes part # TH598004-FB Carry Standard Width Bike Tires
    Yes the Thule ProRide XT for Fat Bikes part # TH598004-FB can easily carry standard bike tire widths as well. The trays are wider to accommodate the fat tires but standard bike tires will fit just as well.

  • Is Thule ProRide XT Roof Bike Rack Compatible With 4-1/2 Inch Tires
    There is a version of the ProRide XT that is compatible with 4-1/2 inch tires, though the base model # TH598004 only fits tires up to 3 inches wide. So what you will need instead is the version with fat tire adapters, which is the following part number: - Thule ProRide XT Roof Bike Rack for Fat Bikes # TH598004-FB The ProRide XT # TH598004-FB will fit tires up to 5 inches wide so your 4-1/2 inch tires will fit perfectly in the wheel cradles. It has a 44 lb capacity which is more than...

  • Replacement Upright Bar Bracket For Thule ProRide XT Roof-Mounted Bike Rack
    Based on the photos you sent me, it looks like you are talking about Replacement Upright Bar Bracket # 1500052940. This is the upright bracket for Thule ProRide XT # TH598004 and Thule ProRide XT # TH598004-FB. I have attached a photo of the Thule ProRide XT so you will want to make sure your bike rack looks the same. I also attached a photo and video showing how the bracket is installed and used.

  • Availability of Fat Tire Adatper for Thule Bike Mouth Bike Rack
    I spoke with my contact at Thule regarding your Big Mouth Roof Bike Rack and he said that the Fat Bike Adapter # TH599100 that you referenced will not fit the carrier. The tray on the Big Mouth is a completely different style than what is on the UpRide Carrier, which is what this adapter is designed to fit. The adapter is not compatible with the Big Mouth Rack. Unfortunately, there is not a fat tire adapter available that will work on the Big Mouth Rack. In order to secure a bike with...

  • Roof Bike Carrier That Is Compatible With My Bicycle With 49 Wheelbase
    I did some research, and I did find an option that will work for you. Unfortunately, the rack I did find that will work with your bicycle with the 49" wheelbase is not a wheel mounted roof bike rack. So the Yakima HighRoad, part # Y02114, will not work with your bicycle. I understand that 1" is not that much, but it becomes a big deal because your rear wheel strap cannot be seated correctly and it will have to be stretched to fit. I think that is too big of a risk to take with your bicycle....

  • Is There a Way to Carry Fat Bikes with Thule Big Mouth Bike Rack
    We've checked with Thule in the past about if there's a fat tire adapter for the BigMouth and they have told us there isn't a solution and also that there isn't a longer strap like you are looking for. The Thule ProRide Roof Bike Rack # TH598004-FB is a really nice option that can handle fat bike tires that are up to 5 inches wide. Its padded clamp features a torque limiter that will hold your bike securely without the fear of over-tightening.

  • How to Carry Fat Tire Bikes on the Roof of a Vehicle
    I do have an option for you but the Thule Big Mouth Roof Mounted Bike Rack part TH599XTR is not compatible with bikes that have fat tires and I cannot recommend you modify it in any way to work with such. Instead, I recommend using the Thule ProRide XT Roof Bike Rack part # TH598004-FB which is currently the only rooftop frame mount bike rack we offer for bikes with fat tires up to 3" wide. The ProRide XT weighs around 10 lbs so it is easy to take on and off the vehicle. It also comes with...

Both carriers install on the Rhino-Rack bars without need for tools or for removing the bike's front wheel.

  • Bike Rack and Kayak Carrier that Can Fit Truxedo Elevate Ladder Rack
    The Truxedo Elevate bed rack part # TX46NV that you referenced is compatible with kayak and bike carrier from Yakima and Thule. Since this rack has channels on top of the bars the racks would easily fit directly to them like with the Thule ProRide XT part # TH598004-FB for a bike rack and for a kayak carrier # TH895.

  • Recommended Cargo Basket To Carry Two Electric Bikes On 3" Crossbars.
    I may have another option but there are currently not any two bike carriers for electric bikes that will work on crossbars. The single bike options like the Thule ProRide XT Roof Bike Rack # TH598004-FB will work with your 3" wide crossbars but are only rated for bikes weighing 44lbs or less which is likely not enough for an electric bike. The option I recommend is adding a roof basket that will fit the area above your tonneau cover like the Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket - 66-1/2" Long...
