Tight and secure fit made easy with rear mounted Thule RaceWay bike rack

Many bicycle riders have been searching for a quality bike rack that fits perfectly to their vehicle. And as bikes get more exclusive and expensive, there is also a need for securely locking gear to the carrier and car. The new rear mounted bike rack, Thule RaceWay, is the answer to all those wishes.

Modern bikes come in many styles and shapes. This can be a challenge for traditional hanging racks. The Thule RaceWay has been designed in a way to address this problem by offering slightly more narrow distance between the arms, while still offering a user-friendly and secure fit for virtually any bike. Thule has even addressed security by adding a cable lock to the carrier.

“Cycling has really taken off in the last few years and many keen enthusiasts have been longing to find a bike rack to match their high quality equipment. I think we have hit the sweet spot with Thule RaceWay. Not only does it match many sought after safety and security features, it’s also really easy to mount and store,” says Eric Norling, International Product Manager Bike.

No matter which car model, Thule RaceWay is really easy to install. The detailed instructions and the patented FitDial take the guess work out of the perfect fit. Simply find the fit number corresponding to the car model in the Thule fit guide and adjust accordingly to get the correct angle. Using an innovative locking ratcheting cable system, and not the more commonly used nylon straps, the carrier is securely fastened to the car. Because cables don’t stretch like straps, they are a more stable way of attaching the rack to the vehicle. Storage is made equally simple with the fully foldable Thule RaceWay. And when not in use, the cables roll up into the bike carrier.

Thule RaceWay is available in two versions - a two bike and a three bike hanging version.
