Differences Between Thule FastRide & Thule TopRide Roof Bike Racks  


Very interested in the Thule roof rack. Any difference between the topride and fastride? This is for a 2022 WRX with oem crossbars.

The biggest difference is fit; the Thule TopRide Roof Bike Rack # TH75JV fits bikes with a 9-mm quick-release skewer, 9-mm captive, 12-mm and 15-mm thru-axle, and 12-mm and 15-mm Boost thru-axle.

The Thule FastRide # TH95JV only fits bikes with a 9-mm captive or 9-mm quick-release skewer, and requires Thru-Axle Adapters # TH58BV to use the rack with 9-mm, 12-mm, or 15-mm thru-axle forks (both require Boost Thru-Axle Adapter # TH38BV for a 20-mm x 110-mm Boost thru-axle).

So really, the long and short of it is the TopRide is better for if you have a thru-axle bike or maybe multiple bikes, but for just a 9-mm skewer go with the FastRide.

Whichever you decide to go with, you can add locks to the cable and rack by adding the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders # TH450200.
