ProRide XT Upright Bike Mount

If you're looking for a quick and easy way to secure your bike and get on the trail faster, the Thule ProRide XT Upright Bike Mount might be just the kind of thing you're looking for. While it may seem like a roof rack system would add to your loading time, this mount features an easy and intuitive design to get your bike loaded in a flash. Featuring two wheel trays and a uniquely designed frame holder, the ProRide XT positions your bike in its proper place in an instant. Once you secure the frame holder, the bike will sit in place as you secure the easily-adjustable and quick-release straps around the wheels. The frame-holder itself uses a claw design with soft padding that disperses pressure evenly around the bike's frame tubes, ensuring that there won't be any incidental damage on rugged mountain roads.


  • Quick setup bike mount to get you on the trail faster than ever
  • Bike slides into place automatically once secured
  • Unique frame holder disperses pressure evenly to prevent damage
  • Wheel holders with quick release straps keep everything locked down
  • Torque limiter dial controls the force going into the bike frame
  • Tool-free interface makes it easy to set up and move
  • Improved mounting hardware fits most factory cross bar profiles
  • Item #THU009F

Solid product

Works great, fit great on an off brand rail system. The instructions could have been more descriptive, but they worked. Definitely quality. I recommend locks unless you plan to take it off all the time.

To infinity and beyond…

This is my second ProRide XT. Easily transports my wife’s hybrid and my gravel bike securely and safely. And the same key system keeps things simple.

Love this rack!

I've had this for a couple of years and it's the second one I've bought because I sold the first with my previous car. No removal of wheel required, not too many parts, the clamp is solid, and easy to put the bike in and off and I especially love the simple locking system.

Beware of parking on uneven ground

On my first time out with this rack I parked on uneven ground as is often encountered at trailheads. Wile unloading the bike was uneventful, loading the bike was another matter. The tire mount/straps are too narrow and the front wheel of the mountain bike kept turning and climbing over it as I tried to load it. The tire mounts are also too loose and slide much too easily. The front strap slid forward and exited the rail causing the bike to fall onto the roof of my car and a pedal to get jammed under the bike rack. Also, the rear buckle strap popped out causing the rear tire mount to come off. Looking at all of the lightweight plastic parts and how they are just snapped together makes me question the longevity of this rack. I have a medium frame mountain bike with standard tires. This is unsatisfactory. I never dropped a bicycle while loading my 80s vintage Yakima bike rack. Unfortunately, the Yakima bike rack will not fit on the Thule bars. I will now have to use duct tape on my brand new Thule bike rack to prevent the tire mounts from sliding around and the end caps from flying off.

Installation is a Nightmare

The installation is a nightmare. The instructions were probably designed by genius engineer during the dark days of winter. Some YouTube videos are a great help. Thule sent one of the wrong parts. I know everybody loves their Thule racks, but this has been time consuming, inconvenient…a real struggle for me. .

difficult to load and unload

I have successfully used older style Thule roof rack for years. Previously, tires sit in a groove the mounting the bike is stable with this design. This style is rack is a dangerous adventure loading and unloading. Neither tire is secure and the clamp is constantly jamming with the crank or frame. Have not figured any safe method to either load or unload bikes. Do not recommend.

Frustrated and scared

Poor Design and Low Quality

I must say that my experience with the Thule ProRide XT has been very disappointing. Here are the major issues I encountered: Poor design: The clamp system, supposed to accommodate all types of bike frames, falls short in effectiveness. I found that for certain specific frames, the clamp didn't secure properly, making it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to install the bike. It's incredibly frustrating not being able to use the bike rack as intended. Difficulty in solo bike installation: Contrary to the manufacturer's claims, loading and securing a bike onto the rack alone is very challenging. The holding system is not ergonomic and doesn't facilitate the task. It often requires a second person to hold the bike while you try to secure it properly. Low quality: I was disappointed by the overall quality of the product. After just a few months of use, I had to replace one of the attachments due to a failure. Furthermore, the attachments tend to loosen easily, which doesn't ensure optimal bike security during transportation. Overall, the Thule ProRide XT did not meet my expectations. The flawed design, difficulty in solo installation, and low-quality attachments make it a product that I absolutely do not recommend.

Outstanding! Exactly what I was hoping for

I've been using my ProRide XT for a couple of months now and love it. It was very easy to install on the rack and it is perfectly designed and quality manufactured. It is everything you hope for and Thule delivered. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking to free up space on their back end and it is a game changer for me by allowing full access to my hatch without the hassle of dealing with a rack there.

An Excellent Addition!

I'm in my first season using the ProRide XT but so far I am very happy with it. It was easy to install to the rack and is not too difficult to mount. Once in place it is locked in tight and after thousands of miles AT 65-70 mph I have had no problems with the rack at all. The only complaint I have is that the locks are sold separately.
