Solid mount, but insecure

Have just driven from UK to the South of France and the rack was flawless while driving, through very heavy rain. It is not flawless while parked however. The release lever should be key operated making it harder to remove the bike as the cable lock is pathetic. Thule have replied to a few comments saying that thieves could release the axle instead, but that is a very weak excuse -for example the fork ends could be capped so the axle head isn’t accessible with an allen key. Instead I pack a separate D lock and cable but it would be a disaster if I left it on while driving.

Great Upgrades

Having used the previous generation TopRide, I was reluctant to get this version. I'm glad I tried it out as the new fork locking mechanism is solid. Easy to assemble and use, very secure and doesn't put wear on fork or thru axel. Overall a top tier Thule product. For those that can't use a hitch rack, this one is great.

Solid and Sleek

I've been using my TopRide for a month and am very happy with the easy installation, rock solid carrying of my investment, and the super sleek look. I initially tried the alternative brand, but it wasn't nearly as well designed. The locking mechanism on the TopRide is fool-proof; There is never a doubt about the correct tension.

A bit disappointed

In general, I'm a fan of Thule products. This one, however, has left me a bit disappointed for two reasons. The first reason being, that despite the website saying the Thule TopRide fit my car (2015 Mazda CX5), the bike rack prevents my rear lift gate from opening. Technically it may fit the car, but it doesn't really as it's too long. The second reason is that I'm not a fan of the metal bits that secure the bike rack to the cross bars. Because of the fit, I'm constantly taking this thing on and off my car. The metal pieces are always falling (it has a very odd design) and landing on my car roof. Not ideal for little dents and scratches.

What an amazing product.

Hands down the best car rack and bike mount system out there. What a simple process to put together. I installed this with the bike rack in about an hour. It's really sturdy and easy to mount my bike. I definitely feel completely comfortable and confident that my bike is secure. I don't even notice that it's up on top of the car while driving. I've owned a Yakima in the past and I like the Thule TopRide and Evo setup better.

Easy to install, rock steady

Recently drove from Vegas to St George, rained the entire drive, had wind warnings, winter storm warnings and even a tornado watch. The rack didn’t budge. Easy on and easy off. Highly recommend.

Checks all the boxes , I use it on a Mach E because I can’t use a rear rack on this car, I have a Trek FX 6 where the front wheel comes off with a 5 mm wrench. My only complaint is a lock should have been included with the rear wheel locking system. This rack is not cheap and Thule wants you to buy as an accessory.

Secure, quiet. I love the design!

I have been carrying bikes on top of my cars for over 3 decades and this is by far the Easiest and most convenient in regard to axle size and type. You put the corresponding cartridge on the front of the bike, slide it in and it locks in place then you slide the ratchet strap down and snug it up. I use for both MTB and road bikes. If you need to lock you bike up, you insert your key pull the lanyard out route thru the frame and rear wheel and lock it up. So easy :)
