Thule 970 Express 2-Bike Carrier

The Thule XPress is the easiest bike carrier to attach to a towball that we've yet come across. A lightweight 2-bike carrier that folds into a small package for storage.

Weight: 4.4kg.
  • Fits all ISO approved towbars.
  • Soft, protective frame holders keep the bikes in place.
  • Folds for easy storage
  • Padlock (not supplied) can be put through attachment bar to prevent removal from car.
  • The bike attachment brackets are about 66cm above the towbar.

The rack attaches to the towbar via a simple but powerfully levered clamp. The uprights are joined near the base by two steel plates - these plates act as a hinge, allowing the uprights to become long levers for clamping the rack onto the towball. To get extreme tightness and to keep the rack in place, a hinged horizontal bar presses the uprights apart firmly, applying extreme force to the clamp at the bottom of the rack. It is this hinged horizontal bar that can have a padlock (not supplied) put through it, preventing removal from the car.
