Taking bike transport to the next level, the Thule Raceway Pro Platform 2 Bike Rack is the only trunk-mounted rack on the market to feature adjustable wheel trays for ultra-secure carrying of two bikes. Its patented FitDial provides a customized fit with nearly any vehicle on the market, precisely adjusting its oversized, molded rubber pads to distribute weight without scratching precious paint on your trunk or rear hatch. Moreover, its retractable SureTight cables further secure this rack to your trunk or rear hatch without scratching, thanks to their vinyl-coating.
Most impressive with this trunk-mounted rack are the telescoping wheel trays and lockable bike clamps, both working in conjunction to secure your favorite bikes without damaging paint or jostling 'em around at highway speeds. The FitDial system and adjustable bike clamps both use Thule's One-Key System, locking the rack to your vehicle and your bikes to the rack without the need for separate keys. And when you're finished using the rack, simply fold it up to eliminate clearance issues when you're backing up in crowded parking lots and urban areas.

- Q & A
Be Wary of This Product
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I ordered this several months back but have just now decided to write a review. As Dianne said, i too ordered a new product and received what appeared to be a used product, TWICE. First one was defective and the second was actually broken. Customer support was really great to me though so after a few hiccups, i finally got a functioning rack.
Now on to the rack itself. For a $400+ rack, this thing is actually pretty flimsy and cheap in some areas. Looks really easy to break. If you are looking to buy this product, be wary. I used this on my BRZ for a 4 hour round trip and the rack actually damaged my car. The weight and heat from the base of the rack on the bumper where it sat actually flexed the plastic of my bumper. Now it has a shallow indention about a foot long across where the rack sat. The weight of it also put too much stress on the hinges of my trunk and the part of the trunk that meets the windshield was pulled up about an inch higher than it was supposed to be. Even after removing the rack, that part of the trunk was still raised. Luckily i was able to press down on both sides of the trunk by the hinges, and it returned to almost flush like it was supposed to be. But still, that was a lot of stress on the trunk. I would not recommend this product, especially if you have a car similar to mine. This is just my experience with this product so it might be different on other vehicles. But it’s safe to say that I will never use this product again.
They sent me used product missing pieces
So unhappy with Backcountry. They sent me product that was installed, used, and missing pieces. I paid for new product and even overnight delivery. The box was clearly beat up and open. How can their shipping department ever let this out of their doors.
What's the main advantage of this platform rack compared to the pro? There's a $100 difference. Will use rack to carry a carbon full suspension bike. Thanks.
This kind of rack does not use your bike frame as a clamp/attach point. Some people don't want anything attaching directly to the frame during transport. My buddy has a platform rack that mounts to a hitch. They work great.
