Review of the Thule Passage 2 Trunk Mounted Bike Rack


Today we are going to be taking a look at the Thule Passage trunk mounted 2 bike rack. Part number TH910XT. The Thule Passage is a safe and affordable way to get your bikes from point A, to point B. It mounts securely to your vehicle's trunk, or rear hatch with a patented fit dial, and straps. The fit dial itself offers nine adjustment levels to help the passage accommodate the wide variety of vehicles. The six straps have rubber coated hooks, and the bike rack itself has four pads, both of which are going to protect your vehicles finish.

We've gone ahead and removed our bikes so we could go over some of the features on the dual arms. They're going to provide excellent stability for our two bikes, the cradle's themselves are adjustable along the dual arms. They have cut out grooves, to accommodate break lines and cables. They hold our bike in three points, We've got the two for the top two, and then one for our anti-sway. The anti-sway is going to help cut down on the sway of the bike while we are on the road.

They hold our bike with the soft adjustable rubber straps, and when not in use they rotate down for storage. Now that we have gone over some of the features, ill go ahead and show you how to get it set up on your vehicle. We've got it in a storage position right here where it's most compact, lets go ahead and start by folding out our arms. This is just going to give us a little more room to work. So I'm going to squeeze these two inaudible 00:01:16 here, and then rotate it up until it clicks into place. Then next we've consulted our fit guide, and we know that we need to be at setting eight.

So pretty simple, we're just going to unscrew our thumb screws here, on both sides of our fit dial, and then rotate it until they align with the number eight. All right that feels pretty good. All right lets go ahead and place it on the back of our vehicle. The bottom pads are going to sit on the top tier of our bumper as you see here, and the top pads are going to sit right next to our rear window here. Now when getting it set up you just want to make sure that it's centered, I've got it lined up with my emblem, or my keyhole, just use whatever works best for you. Let's go ahead and secure our bike rack first with these top two hooks.

So we will just clip that in the top portion of our trunk, and this is going to help hold up the bike rack so we can continue on. So once we get those in place, let's pull them kind of tight, and then we can tighten them again later. Then we are going to move down, we're going to attach our hooks on the bottom portion of our trunks. Right about in that position. Then onto our side hooks, and you want to be certain not to place this anywhere along your tail light here. We are going to place ours right above. So , I found it was easier just to insert it on the top here, and then rotate it down, and then we will tighten that up. All right, then once we have got it into position we can go around to each one of our straps and make sure we've got it tight. And then after that, that would be a good time you'd want to, bundle everything up. Now we can go ahead and get ready to load up our bike. So we will undo our rubber straps, now with some bikes with small openings as you see here, we found it was easier to rotate one of the arms in so we can make it nice and easy for us to get on the dual arms. We'll work our way on , and then once we finally have it on the first cradle, we can rotate it until it clicks in. Just like that. So we will go into our anti-sway strap first, we need to make sure we have our center tube nicely in that cradle there, pull that around and then for our top two. Get it nice and secure. Now we've gone ahead and loaded up the second bike. Now some bikes, such as women's, children's and bikes with alternative frame styles, may require the use of a bike adapter bar. Thule makes one, and that's going to be part number TH982XT. And then now lastly, we can go ahead and take our included strap, and run it through our bikes. I'm just going to run it through the front tires here, just to help cut down on some of the movement as I am driving down the road. Now with both bikes loaded up , let's go ahead and take it on our test course and see how it performs. Here on our test course, let's go into our slalom . This is going to show side to side action, such as going around corners, or evasive maneuvering. Then onto our alternating speed bumps, this is going to show a twisting action such as going over potholes, or uneven pavement. Then finally into our solid speed bumps, this is going to show an up and down action such as pulling into a driveway, or out of a parking lot. And that complete our look at the Thule Passage trunk mounted 2 bike rack, part number TH910XT.
