Thule's ThruRide roof-mounted bike carrier makes it easy to mount almost any bike with a thru-axle fork—no adapters needed. The ThruRide fits forks with 12-20mm thru-axles on anything from fat bikes to XC race rockets to downhill rigs. To load your bike, simply remove the front wheel and re-install the thru-axle into the fork. Lift the bike into the rack, and close the convenient one-handed clamp down on the axle. Then, dial down the clamping pressure to give your bike a secure ride. The ThruRide also works with traditional 9mm quick release forks using an adapter (535SKR sold separately). The rear of the rack is crafted from Thule's aerodynamic "D" shaped low-profile tray. And, tool-free universal mounting makes the ThruRide easy to install on Thule rack systems, as well as round bars and most factory racks.
