Thule UpRide Installed On Car

The UpRide wheel-mount bike rack lets you transport 1 bike of nearly any size or frame style on your roof rack crossbars. The adjustable hook and cage make it easy to load your bike without removing your front wheel. It makes no contact with your bike's frame so it's perfect for carbon frame bikes. The rear-wheel cradle slides along the tray to accommodate your bike's wheelbase. And you can add One-Key System locks to the integrated cable and front mounting lever to secure your bike to the rack and the rack to your vehicle.


Quick and Easy Loading

Thule UpRide Padded Hook - Ajustable SettingsThule UpRide Padded Hook

The UpRide lets you quickly and easily load your bike. The wheel hook has 5 settings to accommodate common tire sizes. To set the hook for your wheel simply pull the knob and slide it to your desired setting. Set your bike's front wheel in the cradle and roll it up against the hook. The hook holds your bike upright so your hands are free to finish the loading process.


Thule UpRide Wheel Cage

With the hook holding your wheel in place you can raise the wheel cage up and ratchet it against your tire until it's snug. The wheel cage puts downward pressure on the wheel as it sits in the cradle to ensure that your bike does not shift during transport. The hook, the wheel cage, and the cradle make no contact with your bike frame so it's the rack perfect for carbon frame bikes.


Thule UpRide Folded Down

The hook and wheel cage have release buttons so you can fold them down when you're not transporting your bike. This increases overhead clearance and allows the rack to remain installed when you are parking in a garage or other low-clearance area.


Sliding Rear-Wheel Cradle

Thule UpRide Sliding Rear-Wheel Cradle

The rear-wheel cradle slides along the wheel tray to accommodate bikes of different lengths. It has a ratcheting strap that secures diagonally across the bike wheel. This creates more surface contact with the rim and improves stability when compared with standard cradle straps. To undo the strap simply press the quick-release button. You can also use an adapter (sold separately) to transport your fat bike.


Easy Installation

Thule UpRide T-Channel Installation

The rack mounts to your crossbars with included T-rack hardware or clamps - 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 UpRide 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

Thule UpRide Locking Cable

You can add One-Key System lock cylinders (sold separately) to the integrated cable in the tray and to the front mounting assembly to secure your bike to the rack and the rack to your vehicle. These lock cores can be swapped out to make all your Thule accessories keyed alike.


Thule UpRide Locking Cable

To lock your bike to the rack with a cylinder installed simply slide the cable out, wrap it through your bike frame, and insert the cable tip into the lock hub.

The rack keeps my bike safe and I drive at 80mph without noise, very easy to install and easy to place the bike



by:

Basically, bolt it to your rack and you're ready to go. Easy to use once you do it a few times. My only complaint is for $200 they could throw in a lock core. Also, this etrailer response is incorrect, it is actually pretty simple to swap the operation of the rack to work on the driver's side (without having your bike face the wrong direction). Two plastic locks hold the main assembly together, unlock, take the hook out and put in the other way. The loop thing at the front is held in by one allen bolt on the bottom; take it out, swap the direction. Finally, the rear tire strap slides out the back; reverse it and slide it on. It takes longer to put the carrier on /off your rack than to swap the direction (not more than 10 minutes).

Easy to install and also easy to get your bike up.



by:

Had this for two years now. It's okay. The best part about it: it fit my RHINO rack perfectly, and the install was simple considering it's a separate brand. It rests fairly quietly. I don't like the design that much, however, it is built for multiple sized wheels and bikes.

it rocks back and forth with a bike a bit too much, however, that again my be by design b/c of wind while you're on the freeway. Pretty easy to mount and dismount, especially if you're tall.
