Features:

  • Trunk-mounted rack lets you carry up to 2 bicycles on the back of your vehicle
  • Long, arcing body tubes are designed specifically to fit over factory spoilers
  • Hold Fast cradles securely hold bikes at 3 points
    • Anti-sway cages prevent bike-to-bike and bike-to-car contact
    • Reinforced straps provide maximum strength and durability
  • Patented FitDial system with Quick-Fit levers ensures quick and easy setup

    • Rotate upward for added ground clearance
    • Allow easy bike loading and unloading
    • Fold down when not in use
  • 6 Nylon straps with hooks and cam buckles anchor the rack to your vehicle
    • Holders with hook-and-loop tabs secure excess strap length to prevent flapping
  • Foam foot pads help to prevent the rack from scratching your vehicle
  • Blue load strap secures bikes to each other and to the rack to improve stability during transport
  • Sturdy steel frame with powder coat finish is durable and rust resistant
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Carrying capacity: 2 bikes
  • Weight capacity: 70 lbs
  • Distance between arms (outside cradle to outside cradle): 12"
  • Limited lifetime warranty


Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle. However, to mount certain bikes or to keep your bike level on the rack, a bike adapter bar may be required. Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.


Thule Gateway XT's spoiler-clearing arced arms

The Thule Gateway XT is a sturdy, 2-bike trunk rack with long, arcing body tubes designed to clear most factory spoilers. Hold Fast cradles with anti-sway cages keep your bikes stable on the rack and help to prevent bike-to-bike contact. The patented FitDial mounting system offers quick and easy setup on most vehicles, and the independently adjustable dual arms let you transport a wide variety of bike sizes and frame styles.


Patented FitDial System

Thule Gateway XT's FitDial System

The patented FitDial system lets you easily adjust the rack body to fit the shape of your trunk. The long, arcing body tubes are designed to fit easily over most factory spoilers, so setup is a snap. Simply press the Quick-Fit levers and rotate the base until the centers of the levers line up with the correct numbers on the dials. These numbers are specified in the instructions included with the rack. Just find your vehicle, identify the correct number, and dial it up.


6-Strap Attachment System

Thule Gateway XT's 6-way nylon security straps

While the FitDial system ensures that the body of the rack is correctly seated on your vehicle, it is the 6 nylon straps that keep the rack anchored in place. The steel hooks on these extra-long straps are nylon coated to prevent scratches on your vehicle, and the straps tighten in place with easy-to-use, backpack-style cinches.


Thule Gateway XT's hook-and-loop strap tabs

Holders with hook-and-loop tabs (similar to Velcro) are included to bind up the excess strap length when the rack is mounted. Simply wrap the holders around the straps to help protect your vehicle from flapping straps.


Molded Foam Pads

Thule Gateway XT's paint-protecting foam pads

Foam pads on the Gateway XT's upper and lower bases grip your trunk or rear hatch to keep the rack firmly in place during transport. The pads are designed to provide friction without leaving scratches and scuff marks on your vehicle.


Hold Fast Cradles with Anti-Sway Cages

Thule Gateway XT's Hold Fast cradles

The Gateway XT has Hold Fast cradles that grip your bike frame at 3 different points - 2 on the top tube and 1 on the seat tube. Built-in anti-sway cages provide bike frame support and help prevent bike-to-bike and bike-to-car contact. The cradles are made of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), a stretchy, gel-like substance that absorbs road shock and minimizes vibration. Molded grooves in the cradles accommodate brake cables. Reinforced TPE straps keep your bike frames snug in the cradles and cages.


Independently Adjustable Arms

Thule Gateway XT's Cinch Lever adjustment

The Gateway XT has narrowly spaced arms that make loading and unloading bikes hassle free. These arms are independently adjustable with the built-in Cinch-Levers. Just flip the lever up, rotate the arm to the desired position, then flip the lever down to lock the arm in place. This enables you to carry bikes with unique frames, and it helps to keep your bikes level on the rack.


Thule Gateway XT's fold-down arms

The Cinch-Levers also allow you to fold down the arms when the rack is not in use and to fold the rack flat for convenient storage.


Security for Bikes and Rack

To lock your bikes to the rack, you can add a Thule cable lock (TH538XT - sold separately). This cable lock features a One-Key System lock cylinder that can be swapped out to make all your Thule products keyed alike. A passive security trunk strap (TH533 - sold separately) is also available to lock your bike rack to your trunk. This strap is threaded through the frame of the rack and around your trunk lid, securing the rack to your vehicle when the trunk is closed and locked.

Video Transcript for Thule Gateway Trunk Mount Bike Rack Review

Today well be demonstrating the Thule Gateway two bike carrier with adjustable arms, part number TH9006XT. This trunk mounted carrier transports up to two bicycles. It has hold fast cradles and a patented fit dial mounting system, making it very affordable yet having high dollar features. We will begin our test fit by setting up the bike rack according to the fit guide found within the instructions of the Gateway. With our bike rack set up we will place it on top of the deck lid and using the two top straps well hook it to the deck lid just behind the rear window. We will then go ahead and snug the nylon straps down just to help us hold the bike rack in place.

In each of the strap locations we will take one of the hook and loop straps. We will use these to tie up the excess nylon strap which will give us a nice, clean, finished look. We can then move down to our side and bottom strap where we will hook one end to the side here at the deck lid right next to the taillight and the other to the bottom of the deck lid, right above the rear bumper cover. We will then snug those down. We will then snug that strap down and move over to the other side, repeating the same procedure.

Now that we have all six attachment points in place we can go ahead and work our way around the nylon straps, tightening them down, securing our bike rack to the vehicle. Now that our bike rack is secured we will go ahead and wrap up the nylon straps and secure them back to themselves. We will now move out here to the arms. Each arm is independently adjustable. We will simply undo the cinch lever where we will then unscrew it which will allow us to move the arm.

When we get the arm into a suitable location for our vehicle, we can then tighten down the bolt and cinch the lever back down. We will do this on both sides, making sure that both arms are parallel with each other. Now that we have both arms out we can move onto our cradles. These hold fast cradles with advanced grooves and detachable anti-sway arms or no-sway cages will gently cushion the frames and accommodate cables for proper bike hold. They hold the bike in three points and prevent swaying as well as bike to bike contact.

The heavy duty reinforced straps maximize cradle hold strength. You will also notice that the cradles will rotate as well as move back and forth on the arms to allow bikes of various frame shapes. We will now go ahead and undo all the straps where we can then place our bike into the cradles and bring the straps around, securing the bike to the bike rack. For demonstration purposes, were going to go ahead and load our bike on the outermost cradles, although when loading your bikes, it is a good idea to start with the cradles closest to the vehicle and work your way out. We will now go ahead and show you the nylon strap that the bike rack comes with that we can use to further secure the bike to the bike rack, or to secure the wheels and tires, however the strap seems necessary. With that done, our bike is on the bike rack and our bike rack is secured to the vehicle. We will now go ahead and take it down the road and see how it performs. That completes our demonstration of the Thule Gateway two bike carrier, part number TH9006XT.

I got the bike rack in the factory box. The box tape seem opened and retaped many layers. The rack has some rusty little spots. one of the bike holding arm has a stripped screw. I have to replaced the screw with a bigger and little longer screw. If you said some one opened the box to check the rack before shipping out then that person did not do his/her job. If etrailer shipped out the returned racked then etrailer needs to inspect the rack to make sure it is factory condition. Any way the rack is very good for its price. The feeling about this rack is not excellent. It's just ok. You pay for what you get guy. 136120

Review from a similar Thule Gateway Bike Rack


Product looks good (haven't used it yet) and easy to install. Etrailer was awesome to deal with. Ordered the rack on a Saturday, didn't expect it to be shipped till at least Monday or Tuesday. Not only was it shipped on Saturday, Etrailer bumped the shipping priority up a notch (at no cost to me) and communicated frequently. I recieved the delivery the following Wednesday. Highly recommend using Etrailer for any of your needs, I will. 96515

Review from a similar Thule Gateway Bike Rack


We bought the Thule 3 bike trunk rack for a vacation trip from ohio to South Carolina. We were greatly disappointed when we arrived and unloaded our bikes to find dents in both our trunk and the rear bumper of our new 2014 Honda Accord. We will be returning this bike rack and will try a Saris instead. 136390


Comments

Thank you for taking the time to review our product! We are sorry to hear that your bumper was dented during the use of the product. According to the included fit tips, the lower arms should be positioned on the bottom of the license plate well, so there is no contact made with the rear bumper. This is recommended because many new cars do not have a sufficient backing behind the plastic bumpers, and thus the load bearing capacity is low. This may also have contributed if there were dents on the lid as well, because the carrier would have rested more towards the middle of the trunk as opposed to closer to the rear window where the weight bearing capacity is higher.

  • Yakima does not have any trunk mounted bike rack solutions for your 2010 Prius, but Thule does. You can use the Gateway, # TH9006XT, the Archway, # TH9009XT, or the Passage, # TH910XT. But I recommend the Raceway, # TH9001XT. The Raceway features retractable cables that make installation and removal of the rack quick and easiest.

  • Will a Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a Honda CR-V
  • If you have a 2007 or newer Honda CR-V (without the rear-mounted spare tire), then you can use a Yakima trunk mount bike rack, but you will be limited to carrying a maximum of 2 bikes. This is because with the Yakima racks that will fit (see link) you must use the glass hook adapters and this reduces the capacity of the 3 bike models down to only 2 bikes. None of the Thule racks, including the Gateway that you referenced are listed as a fit. The bike rack that is closest to the Thule...

This is a Class I trailer hitch which means that only a bike rack that is compatible with a Class I trailer hitch will fit.

  • The trunk mount bike rack that I would recommend for your 2012 Toyota Prius is the Thule Raceway 2 Bike Carrier, # TH9001XT, that you referenced. This is one of our most popular trunk mount bike racks that has many features such as arcing arms arms for more clearance between the bikes, durable ratcheting cable straps and anti-sway cradles. If you would like a more economical recommendation, I would take a look at the Thule Gateway 2 Bike Carrier, # TH9006XT. This bike rack also uses...

  • Recommended Trunk-Mounted Bike Racks for 2011 Audi A6 Sedan
  • All of the Trunk-Mounted Bike Racks offered by Thule will work great with your 2011 Audi A6 sedan. The Thule Passage, part # TH910XT for 2 bikes, or TH911XT for 3 bikes is a good choice. Or, if your A6 has the factory spoiler, the Thule Gateway, part # TH9006XT for 2 bikes, or # TH9007XT for 3 bikes would work great for you. The Thule Raceway, part # TH9001XT/TH9002XT is also a great bike rack. Instead of straps that need to be adjusted, the Raceway uses 4 ratcheting cables that...

  • Will the Thule Gateway Trunk Mount 2 Bike Rack Fit a 2005 Toyota Prius
  • Yes, the Thule Gateway 2 Bike Carrier, # TH9006, is listed as a fit for the 2005 Toyota Prius. I have included a link to a video review of the 3 bike model but it shares features with the 2 bike model. If the Prius is on a tow dolly and you find the bikes on the trunk are hanging too low, you may be able to adjust the arms so that the bikes are up a little higher. However, make sure to return the arms to the proper position before taking the Prius off of the tow dolly. If you will...

  • Will the Thule Gateway Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2007 Nissan Murano
  • Thule does list the Gateway 2, # TH9006XT as a fit for the 2007 Nissan Murano. Pictures are not available and we have not yet installed this bike rack on a Murano but Thule has determined how the bike rack would need to mount to the vehicle.
