This heavy-duty 2-bike rack is perfect for carrying electric bikes and bikes with carbon frames or custom paint jobs. Integrated wheels let you roll the rack, so you don't have to carry it to your vehicle. Tilts with bikes loaded.


Obviously great quality! Not hard to install; however, I suggest watching [online] video prior to installation. Manual with pictures wasn’t very helpful.


When I was in the market for a bike rack, I wanted to get the brand Teo of the guys I ride with have. I had used those racks while going to different places with them. This brand was out of stock and when it finally came back in stock, it was more expensive than before, so I decided to get Thule T2 Pro XTR. This was a really good decision. I like this rack much more than the brand I originally wanted to get.

I highly recommend it.


I had a great trunk rack. However, it would not hold an E bike due to the weight. This rack does a great job of holding my E bike. The rack also allows for me to get into my hatch where a trunk rack would not.


Great product! Easy to assemble, install, and especially easy to load/offload bicycles!


The Thule T2 Pro XTR rack is outstanding. It is sturdy and built to last, and the wheels make it easy to slide up to the trailer hitch and engage it easily. The tilt feature leaves adequate access to the back of my Subaru Forester. The bikes ride in complete security. My one quibble is that the locking cables are far too short to be useful on our bikes.


etrailer is not just a great company to work with but they also carry quality products at the best prices. I've personally experienced there excellent customer service and they follow up everytime.


Works great for carrying our e-bikes and mountain bikes. Solid construction. Stable and secure in use. Integral cable locks are nice. On our 2012 Rav4, there's plenty of clearance between the spare tire cover and nearest bike. Clearance is adequate between the spare cover and carrier with the carrier folded up.


Great bike carrier and easy to mount on hitch and secure.


This an outstanding rack. I have 2 fat tire mountain bikes. They both fit cleanly and securely in this rack. It is easy to assemble if you jump on[line video]. The instructions that come with it are terrible. We used for the first time today. Had an hour each way and it performed beautifully. Excellent investment if you are looking to upgrade. The wheels on the rack make it super easy to get it to your hitch.
As usual, etrailers provided great service and communication all the way through delivery.


I have no issue with My order was shipped promptly and as usual their communication was stellar. When I received the product, the box had several holes in it and over half the assembly hardware was missing. I got replacement hardware locally. I bought the rack to carry our e-bikes on the back of our trailer. It replaces a Kuat that isn’t heavy enough to do the job. The product seems sturdy enough but the assembly instructions are pitiful; some of the worst I have ever seen. You’d think that a product at this price point would have decent instructions. Thank heaven for [online videos] In comparison with my Kuat, the fit and finish is much better on the Kuat. I do have high hopes for this product, but so far the jury is out.


This rack is well built from good materials, many thanks to those that posted assembly videos on u-tube as they are much better that Thule’s included instructions. It’s not that assembly is hard, actually its quite easy but the included instructions do more to confuse, mainly installing the key tumblers into the locks. I run a RAM 1500 with the factory installed 2” receiver, and carry two 55lbs. E-Bikes. The rack performs exactly as demonstrated on videos, and the rollers are a nice addition, as I never leave the rack on my truck unless carrying bikes. When the bikes are loaded you do need to lift a bit on the loaded rack to be able to pull the handle to unlock for tilting. I feel the locking cables that come with the rack are too short, I really need to struggle to get them back to the arms to lock. The rack installs/removes very easily and maintains great separation between my bikes, (they are not fat tired). Had to remove the front fender from wife’s bike, but knew that going in. The rack carry’s our bikes very well, they are always as solid in the rack when I get to my destination as when loaded. Be advised I have never carried them more than 25 miles yet but trust it would do just as well on a long haul. Only non-favorable comment to make, I am retired after near 40 years in design and technical work in the manufacturing sector, and have a good Idea of what things should cost. Although this is a good product Thule must be making a huge profit on these things at the $700.00 selling price.
E-trailers service was excellent, received the rack in three days after purchase.


This is the most we've ever invested in a bike rack but we decided we needed to because we bought two new ebikes. My husband put it together in 20 minutes. He calls it a "beast". He loves how easy it is to load and unload the bikes. Also, the bikes have the least movement while transporting of any bike rack we've ever used. We love this bike rack, it can easily handle two ebikes and we love that we can add two more slots for additional bikes if needed in the future.


Of course Thule does not disappoint! Works OK with a Jeep Wrangler, however, a slight redesign would afford full functionality without removing the rack to open the tailgate. Perhaps next time? The rack itself is solid and fits the bill. Thanks


Works great with larger than average wheelbase bikes (new Stumpjumper). Easy to use, the instruction manual sucks, watch some YouTube videos to put it together. I like that it tilts down for hatchbacks. This is pretty much the best on the market. It's expensive but you'll never wish you'd got something else.


I've ordered through etrailer in the past and had outstanding service and quality products.
The website is excellent and the DIY videos are extremely helpful.
This recent order was processed very fast and the products were delivered within a few days.
The customer service is first class as well as the processing staff.
I have absolutely no negative issues with the company and highly recommend purchasing their products.


It was worth every penny compared to the other bike rack we have! Also when you deal with etrailer you get what you pay for great products and outstanding service!


Your personal service provided me was excellent.

main problem is with the installation instructions provided by Thule that are very poor. It simply does not go into the needed detail for an accurate and complete install. Also, when you have a fat tire there is no mention on what you need to do with the straps to expand the length needed. Most people would think that this product does not work, but it does if you know what the fix is to lengthen the straps.

The bottom line for me was to follow a [online] video that recognizes the confusion from the "manual" and then takes you through the clear steps to make it all work.

Greg, when you have a chance, refer to "Thule T2 Pro XT and XTR Hitch Mount Bike Rack Assembly Tips" and see the comments and instructions presented. Thule most likely knows about this but they need to be reminded so further improvements can be made for their written instructions.

Again Greg, your service was outstanding. The written instructions are out of your control.


Love this bike rack! etrailer was incredibly fast in delivery! They will be my first choice for future purchases.


Great bike carrier; exactly what I was looking for. Holds 2 bikes very securely and easy to attach and remove from the vehicle.


Box was in terrible shape upon arrival probably explaining the 2 day delay in the delivery by UPS. Despite the outside, the product itself was unharmed. It was easy to put it together. Looks good. Solid construction. Able to support our two e-bikes.


The product is excellent. Just be careful when using the pictures-only assembly instructions. I missed the part about using the blank key to insert the locks and it cost me an extra 20 minutes.


Really excellent customer service. When problem developed on prompt delivery of bike rack, Tammie P. arranged for immediate ordering of excellent alternate product, and made delivery in time happen. My thanks to Tammie P.


Quality retailer selling quality produc ts!


It went together easily.


great rack easy to use love we have to ebikes

  • How to Determine if Thule T2 Pro XTR Will Clear Truck Tailgate When Folded Down
    I went and grabbed one of the Thule T2 XTR # TH83JV we have in stock and got a measurement that will help you figure out if the rack will let your tailgate close when the arms are folded down. If you measure from the top of your hitch opening up 14-1/4 inches that's where the very top of this rack would be when folded down. So if you have a greater distance between the top of the hitch opening and the tailgate when folded down this rack will clear.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Carrying a Fat Bike and a Standard Frame Bike
    The great thing about the fat bike racks is that they also work with standard tire bikes as well. A great example of this is the Thule T2 Pro XTR part # TH83JV which we have tested fat bikes and standard tire bikes on and it worked flawlessly. As long as your tires are 5" wide or less, this rack is your best option.

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation For Fat Tire Bikes
    For your 4-1/2 inch to 5 inch fat tire bikes, the platform bike rack that I highly recommend is an option from Thule: - Thule T2 Pro XTR Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches # TH83JV The T2 Pro # TH83JV will fit bikes that have tires up to 5 inches wide, and one of the reasons I like it so much is that it is so easy to use; to install it in your hitch you only need to put its pin through the hitch pin hole and tighten it in the hitch with the twist of a knob on the front of the rack.

  • Clearing a 2012 Toyota RAV4s Spare Tire with a Thule T2 Pro XTR 2 Bike Rack
    In this case, the Thule T2 Pro XTR 2, part # TH83JV, will be extremely close. The T2 Pro has a distance of 5 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the rack when folded. I've included a video of our test fit so you can see this fit for yourself. Before you purchase, I recommend ensuring a fit for the spare tire by taking a few measurements. You'll want to measure the distance from the center of your hitch pin's hole to the furthest edge of your spare tire....

  • Hitch Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    For a very sturdy bike rack that would work well in the 2 inch hitch of your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee the Thule T2 Pro XTR bike rack part # TH83JV would have been a great option but it is not rated for a flat-tow application so it will not work for you. Instead, check out the Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount - Matte Black # BA22B. It is a platform style rack that can be used on a toad vehicle. I attached a video for you to see it in action.

  • Platform Bike Rack Needed with Bike and Rack Locks for a Carbon Fiber Bike and Childrens Bike
    We do have a list of platform bike racks that are wheel mounts (no frame contact) and come with bike and hitch locks. As far as a fit for children's bikes it really just depends on how small the wheels are. Since the wheels on your child's bike are at right at 20" I recommend going with the Thule T2 Pro XTR # TH83JV. It has all of the features mentioned above, is compatible with 20" - 29" wheel diameters, and has a 60 lb per-bike weight capacity. The integrated handle at the rear of the...

  • Is The Thule T2 Pro XTR Bike Rack Compatible With Deep Carbon Wheels?
    The Thule T2 Pro XTR 2 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches # TH9034XT will work with deep carbon wheels. I reached out to Thule and they suggest that you be careful with the ratcheting strap on the back tire so you don't overtighten it, but the front wheel clamp and design of this rack will be fine for your deep carbon wheels under normal use.

  • Stable Platform Bike Rack that Only Fits 2 inch Hitches
    I have just what you are looking for. The Thule T2 Pro part # TH83JV would be a great option. It is designed only for 2 inch hitches like you mentioned and it is super solid. I attached a test course video that shows how solid it is on the road too. It also only touches the bikes at the tire like you Transfer.

  • Does The Thule T2 Pro XTR Come With An Arm Lock?
    Be sure to watch my review video of the Thule T2 Pro # TH83JV. It does have cable locks stowed away in the wheel hook arms! It's hard to see since they stow away so nicely. I really like the design especially compared to just having a sloppy bike cable that doesn't stow away in the arm.

  • How Do I Fix the Handle Release on My Thule T2 Pro XTR # TH83JV?
    I reached out to my contact at Thule, and he walked me through the steps to reconnect the mechanism on your Thule T2 Pro XTR # TH83JV. To get the mechanism re-aligned to move the rack to various positions, remove the side screws on the handle then loosen the center one (which will not come out completely). Remove the handle to be sure that the center piece lines up on the backbone. I went ahead and attached a photo to this answer to let you know how the pieces should be aligned.

  • Why Won't My Locking Knob on My Thule T2 Pro XTR # TH83JV Not Tighten?
    The first thing you need to do is to make sure that the lock on your Thule T2 Pro XTR # TH83JV is unlocked first. The most common problem is trying to tighten the knob while it is locked. In order to solve this issue, you need to first unlock the lock, tighten the knob, then lock the mechanism. Please feel free to respond to this answer if that does not solve your issue.

  • Do Keys Come with Thule T2 Pro XTR Bike Rack For Arms and Rack
    The Thule T2 Pro XTR Bike Rack # TH83JV comes with cable locks that tuck away in the arms for a clean aesthetic as well as a locking anti-rattle hitch pin. It comes with matching keys for both the bike and rack locks so you can keep 1 key on your person and then put the additional key in a safe place. Be sure to record the number of the key so you can order more in case you misplace it. The number can be found on the cylinder of the lock core but that won't do you any good if the core is locked.

  • Is Thule T2 Pro XTR Bike Rack Rated For Use on Motorhome
    Good question, and I checked directly with Thule and can verify for you that yes, the T2 Pro XTR bike rack is rated for use behind a motorhome, and a 170 inch wheelbase is 100 percent safe for using the rack. Thule even displays this in the directions, as you can see by the cut out I added. The correct part number for the rack is the following: - Thule T2 Pro XTR Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches # TH83JV The T2 Pro XTR # TH83JV is a superb choice for a bike rack, as it is super simple...

    The most recent version of the Thule T2 is the Thule T2 Pro XTR 2 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches part # TH83JV and part # TH23JV for 1-1/4" hitch applications. These replace the older 2" Thule T2 versions TH9034 and TH9034XT (2") and older 1-1/4" versions TH9035 and TH9035XT.

  • Why Isn't the Tightening Knob Activating on My Thule T2 Pro XTR Bike Rack?
    I went ahead and reached out to Thule, and my tech said that the most common issue with the knob/wedge of the T2 Pro XTR # TH23JV or # TH83JV involves the lock. One thing that you can do is make sure that the tightening knob is in the "unlocked" position. If it is in the "locked" position, this will not allow the wedge to tighten. If this troubleshooting method does not work, you need to fill out a warranty claim with Thule or replace the entire rack. There is unfortunately no replacement...

  • How to Use a Fat Tire Bike on the Thule T2 Pro XTR 2 Bike Platform Rack
    The Thule T2 Pro XTR 2 Bike Platform Rack part # TH83JV that you referenced comes with the longer wheel straps and wider wheel cradles to accept fat tires bikes with tires up to 5" wide. They do not make a longer wheel strap for this bike rack so your only option like you mentioned would be to continue deflating the tires so you can secure the wheels inside the cradles.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon for Carrying T2 Bike Rack
    The factory hitch of the 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon does have a shallower pin hole which makes fitting a bike rack into it hard.

It would allow you to install the Thule T2 Pro XTR part # TH83JV and you'd be set.
