Why We Like The Apex XT Bike Rack

Constructed for smooth, luxurious bike transportation, the Thule Apex XT Bike Rack provides improved ground and bumper clearance than its predecessors, and makes loading and unloading your bikes easier than ever before. The SnugTite stinger system allows for easy and secure installation without tools, while the the HideAway anti-sway cradles keep your bikes stable when you're on the road.

The compact cradle design accommodates a wide variety of bike sizes and frame styles, meaning there's room for the whole family, and all four bikes sit seven inches apart on the arms to provide optimal spacing and eliminate contact. The reinforced cradle straps are now 25% stronger than the previous version, and Thule even included an Integrated Locking Cable to secure your bikes to the rack. The Hitch-Switch design allows the carriers arms to fold down and the entire carrier rack to fold away when it's not loaded, giving you easy access to the rear of your vehicle.


  • Reliable and convenient hitch bike rack carries up to 4 bikes
  • Easy, tool-free installation with SnugTite stinger and hand knob
  • HideAway cradles with ratcheting straps makes loading a breeze

So easy to use

Bought this specifically for ease of use - can install on and off very easily without tools or any trouble. Bikes are easy to mount. Locking features are great as well. Look forward to getting out and about with this trailer this season.

No pin- fell of car with 3 bikes on it

This seems like it should be great. However, there is no on that goes through the hitch, just one that clamps on the side. When we went on vacation with 3 bikes on the rack, and drove on a bumpy road, the whole hitch just fell off, with all the bikes. We had to have my kids ride back out 8 miles so we could get out without it falling off again. And we are positive that we secured and locked the hitch correctly.

Well made

Good and sturdy, the only thing missing is a front wheel stabilizer . Also beware with the space between the rods, kids bikes dont fit. In general very good product

Great for adult.bikes ,not for kids size bikes

Do not think you can put a small adult size or a childs bike on there because you cannot. We bought it to make it easy to transport our FAMILY bikes everywhere we go. Found out we could not fit them all. Disappointing.

Good product

We've been out for several times with 3 bikes mounted. The longest trip is 20km one way with the max speed around 70km/h. It feels like very sturdy. One problem for me is the frames of my wife and son's bikes (20' and 24') are seems a bit tight for it. The paint is scraped a bit. Other than that, it needs a bit of effort when you try to mount two bikes onto adjacent cradle. But it should be a common problem for all cradle racks. Overall, I'm happy with this product.

Great with one exception.

I love this bike rack - easy to install on the tow, easy to get bikes on and off. Love the locking and folding features. Slightly heavy but that’s a good thing. The only thing that I am not fond of is the straps do not come installed and it’s challenging to make sure you put the right straps in the right spots (and not easy to get them off if in the wrong ones). Frankly I’m still not sure I have them in the right spots. Overall happy with our purchase.

Another great Thule product

Use this with my Subaru Ascent. Excellent design, and very easy to use. It is heavy, but I’d say that means it is well made.
