Thule 591 ProRide Single Pack Roof Mount Cycle / Bike Carrier. New!
Brand New Item In Original Packaging.
The Thule 591 fits roof bars to 56mm wide.
It holds bikes with down tubes from 22mm to 80mm diameter (up to 80 x 100mm for oval frames), with a maximum weight of 20kg.
It weighs 4.0kg.
Each 591 has two One Key System locks - one locks the carrier to the roof bars, the other locks the bike to the carrier.
It's TÜV approved and meets the "City Crash Test" criteria.
Quick-release straps with wheel protection hold the wheels securely in place (adjustable for different wheel sizes).
How to fit this item;
When the bike frame is resting in the frame holder you'll support it with one hand and use the other to turn the tensioning knob which is probably at shoulder level. This has a one way ratchet, i.e. the frame holder will click shut one notch at a time, click, click, click, until the bike is held securely. This is what Thule call their "Self adjusting frame holder".
You release the ratchet with a push button; it releases entirely, making it easier to take the bike off.
It comes complete with 20mm x 20mm adapters for aluminium T-track section bars, suitable for all the Atera, CRUZ, Prorack Whispbar and Thule bars we sell. All these fittings now use an M6 fine thread. If you have other aerobar types, e.g. BMW, then you need their adapter set.
