5.0 out of 5 stars It's well worth paying the extra.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 13 June 2016
Ok, let’s address the elephant in the room first; this cycle carrier is at the top end of how much a hang on cycle carrier can cost. There are plenty of other 3 bike carriers that cost half (or more) of the price of this Thule model but the question that you really need to ask yourself is whether or not you would trust a budget carrier to adequately hold your bike without it flapping about or worse. Personally, I’ll take the premium brand over a budget brand any day of the week if my bike is going to be well protected.

So, is it any good? For the answer, please read on . . .

FIRST IMPRESSIONS:

The bike carrier comes in a pretty big cardboard box although in my opinion it was very poorly packaged (see pictures below) as the carrier was nowhere near the size of the box and there was no protective padding in the box to stop it from banging around inside. Thankfully there wasn’t any damage but for an Amazon Prime delivery I do expect products to be better cared for throughout transit.  In fairness, this is an issue for Amazon and does not impact on the assessment of the product itself. 

The packaging issue has been referred to Amazon for further comment.

The carrier is fairly compact when folded and weighs approximately 7.5kg. Despite its relatively light weight it’s very well constructed and the hang-on bars lock tightly into place either when it’s ready to go or when it’s folded away.      

IN THE BOX: 

- The cycle carrier
- An instruction manual
- A security manual
- An allen key for maintenance tightening of bolts
- A large tightening bolt for securing to towball
- A large heavy duty closed and open ended spanner for the towball bolt

WHAT’S GOOD ABOUT IT:

- Lightweight
- Bikes are held very securely with minimum wobble
- Sturdy construction
- Built in frame straps (reflexes)
- Built in bike strap with strong clasp
- Fits to towball within 5 minutes (max) and takes even less time to remove
- Secure mounting on towball using a single tightening bolt.
- 5 year manufacturer’s warranty

At the moment I only need to use it for two adult bikes and a junior one but it’s handy to have the extra space should I need it.

Word of warning/advice #1: MOST mountain bikes don’t have horizontal bars and you have to manoeuvre the bike frame carefully into place to get it on the bar.  There is, of course, a Thule accessory of a bar adapter but not surprisingly that’s quite expensive and with some careful positioning and twisting you can probably do without it.

Word of warning/advice #2: You will almost certainly need a lighting board to use with this cycle carrier or risk getting a £60 fine. Thule sell one but I bought one from a high street bike/car retailer, which begins with H and ends with Alfords, for £20 and it’s perfectly acceptable.

FEATURES:

- Folds away when not in use
- Quick tilt, even with bikes attached, giving boot access
- Easily carries 2 adult bikes and a junior bike (would require careful positioning for 3)

NEGATIVES:

- A bolt lock (separate accessory) needs to be purchased to prevent opportunist thieves from removing the carrier from the towball and pinching your rack and bikes
- If you fold down the mount without bikes the top of the carrier touches the floor. After three or four times of doing this I’ve noticed that the frame is already scratched. It would have helped if Thule had put some rubber protection on this area to prevent it from being damaged.
- Poorly packaged, but that’s Amazon’s fault.
- The fixing strap could do with being a little longer.

SUMMARY:

I’ve done about 8 journeys, covering approximately 400 miles, with two bikes on the back in rain, hail, wind and shine and it’s done me proud. I’m very happy with my purchase and I’m sure that it’ll last me for a good number of years.

I review a lot of products as a hobby and all of my reviews are based on my experience and use of the product.  Unlike some other products I’ve reviewed I paid full price for this bike carrier and I am more than happy to recommend it.
