A roof-mounted bike carrier is a common carrier used to transport race bikes, but can be used with other bikes as well. The carrier is mounted on the roof, giving you full access to the trunk of your car. One carrier carries 1 bike only, but you can mount additional carriers on your roof to transport more bikes or other gear. Please note that all roof-mounted bike carriers require rack or approved factory-installed crossbar systems.
Hitch-mounted bike carriers are the most common bike carriers. They can carry 1-5 bikes, are easy to mount to your car and limit heavy and high lifting.
A rear door-mounted bike carrier is an ideal option if you don't have roof racks or a hitch on your car. Foldable and easy to store when not in use, the carrier is mounted on the rear door of your car and can carry 1-4 bikes.
Please note that a rear door bike carrier does not fit all cars depending on the size, construction, used material and design of your car's rear door as well as on rear spoiler / windscreen wiper and other car-specific regulations. The Thule Buyer's Guide will tell if a rear door-mounted solution will work for your car.
If your car has a spare tire on the rear of your car, you can mount a bike carrier directly on it. This spare tire solution is compact, easy-to-install and carries 1-2 bikes.
The truck bed carriers are easy-access options for carrying your bikes in the bed of your pick-up truck. Compare the different options to match your needs.
Size filter gives you an indication of the overall space of the carrier – bigger vs. smaller. For specific loading demands, check the detailed measurements for the product to find the perfect fit.
Required length of carrier is mainly determined by the load that you’re transporting – skis may need a longer box, for example.
A longer carrier might limit rear door opening.
Also choose a length that matches the style and proportions of your car.
Can I fit a pair of skis?
Box length should be ski length + 15-30 cm. Check individual roof box specifications.
Select the maximum length of the skis you want to bring.
To mount a (roof box, ski rack, etc) to your vehicle, you need to have a roof rack. If you do not have a roof rack, use our fit configurator to find your vehicle's best option.
If there is not a (roof box, ski rack, etc) that fits your vehicle, please ensure you have selected your vehicle's roof type and existing roof rack in the fit configurator on the left (or above in mobile).
If you have entered all the information and there is still not a (roof box, ski rack, etc) available for your vehicle, unfortunately, this means that Thule fit engineers have not approved a fit for your vehicle.
To mount your winter sport gear on the roof of your vehicle, you must have a roof rack system to support the carrier.
