Adapter For Thule Big Mouth Bike Rack to Roof Rack With Top Channels


have a 2008 impreza hatchback with factory cross bars want to install Thule big mouth on cross bars what do I need ??


Expert Reply:

There is an adapter for your Thule Big Mouth bike rack that will allow it to mount to aero crossbars on your 2008 Subaru Impreza, so long as those crossbars have top channels to utilize T-bolts. If your Impreza does have that type of crossbar, the correct adapter for your Thule Big Mouth is the following:

- Thule XADAPT2 AeroBlade and Xsporter Load Bar Adapter for Roof-Mounted Carriers # Xadapt2

This would be the only option to mount the Big Mouth to aero crossbars as there isn't another type of adapter available for this rack. If your Impreza does not have those type of crossbars, you wouldn't be able to use the Big Mouth and would need a new roof-mounted rack such as the Yakima HighRoad Roof Bike Rack # Y02114 or Swagman Enforcer Roof Bike Rack # S64704.

I have added links below to a number of video reviews for you to check out as well if you'd like to take a look.
