The Thule T2 2-Bike Platform Hitch Rack is a premier platform hitch rack that offers maximized features, performance and convenience fit for both serious and casual riders. The rack utilizes a combination of a reinforced bike tray providing maximum strength and rust-free protection from below, with effortless ratcheting SecureHook supports at the top that keep up to two bikes secure and scratch-free during transport. Additional features include: two separate models specific to 2-inch (916XTR T2) and 1¼-inch (917XTR T2) hitch receivers, compatibility with bikes up to 20-inch to 29-inch wheel diameters with up to 3-inch wide tires, locks to secure bikes to the rack as well as the rack to the vehicle, and a 4-bike expansion option for the 2-inch 916XTR T2 model with an added accessory (sold separately).
A hitch mount rack, the T2 attaches to your vehicle's pre-installed hitch receiver located below the rear bumper. The two models available in Thule's T2 product line are design for use with different sized receivers - the 916XTR T2 working with 2-inch receivers and the 917XTR T2 with 1¼-inch receivers. Both contain two heavy-duty tubes, each with two molded wheel trays that cradle and support the weight of bikes from below via its two wheels. Bike tray assemblies accommodate bikes from 20 to 29-inch wheel diameters and with up to 3-inch wide tires. Bike trays work in conjunction with wheel straps that hold bikes to the wheel trays and two independent SecureHook support arms -- one for each bike -- that ratchet down on the top of mounted front bike tires, holding the whole bike securely in place without any contact with the frame. When not in use these two arms fold down inline with the bike trays. This combination of wheel trays secured at hitch receiver level and SecureHook arms allows for fast loading and unloading of bikes with minimal lifting for ultimate convenience.
The Thule T2 2-Bike Platform Hitch Rack also protects your mounted bikes from thieves with its multi-tiered locking system consisting of an integrated cable lock that secures bikes to the carrier without making frame contact, and the Snug-Tite lock that secures the rack to your vehicle at the receiver hitch. In addition, the unique Snug-Tite lock does double duty for owners by virtually eliminating hitch carrier movement.
The T2 2-Bike Platform Hitch Rack product line also contains unique folding and leaning functionality via its Hitch Switch feature. Based on a pin-based mechanism located at the base of the unit, this feature allows for maximum flexibility as users can fold the bike trays completely up when not in use and lock them into place. This allows for ease of driving and parking with the carrier remaining mounted. This same feature also makes it possible for bike trays to be temporarily angled back towards the rear of the vehicle and automatically held in place when not driving, allowing for rear vehicle access.
Thule's T2 2-Bike Platform Hitch Rack (Thule 916XTR T2 only) can also conveniently and economically be upgraded to a 4-bike carrier with the additional purchase of the Thule 918XTR T2 2-Bike (2-inch hitch receiver) add-on. This accessory connects via the same sized 2-inch hitch receiver doubling capacity without limiting functionality, including Hitch Switch folding and leaning functionality.
Thule T2 2-Bike Platform Hitch Rack, user's manual and warranty information.
Thule will warranty all Thule brand car rack systems and its accessories manufactured by Thule during the time that an original retail purchaser owns the product. This warranty terminates if a purchaser transfers the product to any other person. No warranty is given for defects caused by normal wear and tear, cosmetic rust, scratches, accidents, unlawful vehicle operation, or modification of, or any types of repair of a load carrier system other than those authorized by Thule.
Thule was founded in 1942 by the Thulin family, when Eric Thulin, a true lover of the outdoors, put the Thule name on a pike trap he designed and began to sell in Scandinavia. It wasn't long before he added other practical items to the company's portfolio. By the 1960s, the company began to concentrate on car-related products, including its first roof rack. The Thulin family sold Thule to the publicly listed company Eldon in 1979, and it has continued to grow both organically and through acquisitions ever since. The Thule Group is a world leader in providing transport solutions for an active life.

After paying close to $500 for this thing, it came with a bolt missing. My first Thule came with an un-threaded receiver post and had to go back. Read morePublished 2 months ago by CJ
works well, it is not perfect... as with all Thule products, it fits too close to your spare tire on a Toyota Rav4. Read morePublished 2 months ago by 1-awm
This was very cumbersome to assemble and still did not feel secure when attached to the car with one bike on it. Sent it back for the Kuat rack. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Patti S Compton
