Product Research


Overview: The Thule 598-Criterium roof-top bike carrier provides a rack level dial-activated clamp, a push button clamp release, and a sleek sculpted wheel tray.

Compatibility: The root-top bike carrier fits factory, Thule, and Yakima (square or round) load bars. Thule 532 Ride-On Adapter (sold separately) is needed for factory mounting. This carrier requires the use of Xadapt8 (sold separately) when using the Thule Xsporter or rapid aero bars.

Construction: The 598-Criterium is made of anodized aluminum, steel, and rubber.

Capacity: The Thule 598-Criterium accommodates one bike. The Low profile wheel tray and dual action wheel strap fits all tire sizes without the need for a wheel adaptor.

Bike Loading/Unloading: A sculpted wheel tray and support arm clamp work together and help keep bike in position when securing to carrier. Simple to use rack level adjustment dial closes clamp around bike tube for ultimate transport stability. Unloading your bike is a breeze with a fast, push button clamp release.
