Overview: The Thule 554XT - Hang Two Surf Carrier offers factory rack compatibility with improved board protection. The 554XT provides maximum board protection and lateral transport stability thanks to its soft, oversized cradle. Its strong, easy to use straps provide board protection and transport security.

Capacity: The 554XT offers Two board capacity out of the box (not for sailboard use).

Note: All long loads such as, but not limited to, sailboards, surfboards, kayaks, canoes and lumber must be tied down front and rear to the bumpers or tow hooks of the vehicle.

Compatibility: The Thule 554XT's universal mounting hardware adapts easily to Thule square and Xsporter load bar, Yakima, and most factory installed racks.

Note: May require the use of Xadapt3 (80 MM bolts) on some factory applications. This item will require the use of Xadapt3 (80 MM bolts) on our XSporter (421/422) and Rapid Aero Bars.

Thule Hang Two Carrier

Written By Court, Cleveland on Saturday, August 03, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This product worked out great for carrying my windsurfer. Very easy to install and the straps do a great job holding the board in place. Hope to eventually use for a paddle board or two.
