Thule 594XT Sidearm Bike Rack
Our take on the Thule 594XT Sidearm Bike Rack by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
Thule's 594XT Sidearm roof carrier attaches to Thule rack systems and load bars to transport a single bike. The carrier's SecureHook holds the bike by the front wheel, preventing damage to the bike frame. This versatile design allows the carrier to work with a variety of bikes, including those with non-traditional frame designs. The aluminum wheel tray provides maximum strength and rigidity. All Thule equipment passes tough European safety standards for car racks.
