Roof bike rack

Thule ProRide XT

Upright bike carrier for the quickest, most convenient mounting – for bikes up to 44 lbs.



  • Automatically positions your bike when you secure it, thanks to the uniquely designed frame holder and wheel tray
  • Quick and easy bike securing – the torque limiter dial controls the force going into the bike frame with a clear sign of correct mounting
  • Improved mounting hardware fits most factory cross bar profiles
  • Pressure is spread via large, soft claw pads that adapt to your bike’s frame tubes – minimizing the risk of frame damage
  • Safe mounting – your bike is prevented from falling thanks to the claw’s extended lower jaw
  • Stable wheels – firmly fixed in smartly designed wheel holders with diagonal quick-release wheel straps
  • Easy, tool-free interface for switching carrier from one side of your car to the other.
  • Mounts to all Thule rack systems, round bars and most factory racks
  • 2 One Key lock cylinders (sold separately) lock the bike to carrier and carrier to rack.

Best Roof Rack....Easy to Use


Easy to use....Holds the bike secure.....Doesn't take up a lot of room when mounted on the roof rack

I would like to return this product


Purchased carrier to carry bike when I travel; chose Thule because my car (Subaru Outback) came with Thule bars. I'd had a Yakima system before and wish that I had stuck with it. The Thule "eagle claw" is great in theory, but not so much in practice: When removing bike, you have to tilt bike away from you with one hand, while pushing claw down out of the way with the other. When mounting the bike, you do the same but in reverse. Also, tie-down straps for tires buckle on the far side, so you fasten by feel. Pros at two bike shops (in different states) who helped tell me mount/dismount bike after a trail accident marveled at the poor design.

Surprisingly solid rack!


I ride a 32lb mountain bike and this rack is very stable, even on some very rough logging roads that I took it on. I was worried about getting some side to side movement in the rougher areas of the road but my friend who was driving behind me said it did not look wobbly at all! The locking arm seems more like a preventative feature but it would bring some peace of mind if I wanted to run into a store or a restaurant briefly. The ratchet straps also really lock down the wheels and are very easy to use. Keep in mind you do actually have to lift your complete bike up on your roof so it may not be ideal for the vertically challenged or those with larger SUV's or Trucks but I have a 2011 Ford Escape and with my bike on the roof, I still have about 9 feet of clearance.
