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.

2014 Ford Taurus


I just used the Thule Gateway XT 2 trunk mount bike rack along with a Swagman DLX bike adapter bar on my 2014 Taurus to transport my son's mountain bike over 900 miles from KY to FL. It preformed excellently and was very stable. It was a little tight because of the bikes frame, so to be safe I used the outside mount on the rack to carry the bike so it would not hit the bumper. I also recommend tying (in my case, bungie cord) the bike to the Thule frame so it cannot rock into the car's trunk or bumper, especially at highway speeds. But with a few simple precautions, even long distance transportation was a breeze! 221775

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

2015 Dodge Dart


I have a 2015 Dodge Dart. It was easy to install and it holds my GT mountain bike and my wife's Nishki Mountain bike. It held the bike's firmly and to my delight, it did not allow my car to get scratched while driving. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5, I wish the straps were retractable. It comes with ties but it doesn't look good. I know Thule makes one but it was more than I wanted to spend. 280885

I opened the box and put the unit together, installed it on my automobile and placed both bikes on the rack. This insluded reading the installation manual and watching the installation video took about 40 minutes. The bike rack is much sturdier than previous ones that I have used. Removing and collapsing is easy also. After the initial strap adjustment there will be very little adjustments while installing the second time. I will enjoy using this unit for years to come. We are planning our first biking excursion next week to test this out on the road. 164335

Buick Enclave


Originally bought this for my Honda Fit but it's adaptable enough that it also fits on my Buick Enclave. Have only used it a couple of times so far and it works very well. I am exclusively a road biker and it holds my large frame road bike well. Holds the bike steady and well above exhaust pipe level and mounting the bike takes less than a minute. I have other carriers over the years and this is probably one of the best. 202977

2013 Volvo XC60


The Thule TH900SXT (2 bike) rack we ordered arrived within a few days. All the parts were in the box and it took only about one hour to fit on our 2013 Volvo XC60. The instruction manual was easy to follow and required only a few steps. When we used the rack the next day, it held our bikes securely in place with no sway and well away from our vehicle's tailgate. We are very pleased with the rack's performance. 172727

etrailer got this bike rake to us in record time. Order on a Sunday was here by Thursday. The bike rake does fit my car though my 2015 Prius has a spoiler on the back of the car and I had to change the manufacture suggestion setting of 7 to and 8 to get it off the spoiler. All in all I'm very happy I found etrailer they were very helpful and got me my order on time. thanks from Canton, CT. 275037

Jeep Compass


The first thing I was impressed with was the overall design and construction. Following the instructions, mounting was a breeze. The fit to vehicle type was seamless. The rack fit perfectly on my Jeep Compass as stated in the website. Material and workmanship is some of the best I've seen in a while. Am looking forward to using when the rain stops !

Toyota Avalon


works just fine. solid workmanship and materials. When straps are snug, bikes do not move/sway. Able to adjust arms higher to allow for more bicycle tire clearance since Toyota Avalon is low to the ground. Do have a slight concern regarding wear-ability of rubber straps. but they are thick and I assume I can get replacement straps if necessary. 232404

Heavy-duty construction and well thought out. I use the bike rack on my 2010 Chevy Malibu to carry two mountain bikes. To make sure I don't scratch the trunk paint surface a friend recommended I place micro-fiber clothes under the contact points. Works great. No worries about stability when traveling down the road. Good investment. 251995

Review from a similar Thule Gateway in Trunk Bike Racks


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

I purchased this Thule bike rack over a year ago, and finally used it to transport 3 bikes from Germany to the Swiss Alps for a camping trip. I found the instructions easy to understand, and this was an ideal Fit for my Volvo XC90 SUV. The Bike rack was very stable with no rubbing or damage to my Vehicle. The included rubber straps and velcro strap holders worked well. I look forward to many more road trips with this bike rack. 268205

2014 Honda Accord

Review from a similar Thule Gateway in Trunk Bike Racks


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.

I had this same experience with the bike rack on my Toyota Camry it was such a punch in the gut to see the dent.

  • Will Thule Apex Replacement Cradles Fit a Thule Gateway Trunk Mount Bike Carrier
  • The Thule Gateway # TH9006XT and the Apex both should have 1-1/4 inch diameter arms so you should be able to fit replacement cradle # 7521513002. The cradles on both are known as Hold Fast cradles its just that the ones on the Apex are upgraded with road dampening technology. Otherwise the holes have the same inner diameter.

  • 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...

But I recommend the Raceway, # TH9001PRO. The Raceway features retractable cables that make installation and removal of the rack quick and easiest. It is by far the easiest to mount trunk mount bike rack I have used. If you will be carrying womens, childrens, or alternative frame bikes, I recommend...

  • The Curt trailer hitch, # C11120, only fits WRX or WRX STi models. If your 2012 Subaru Impreza hatchback falls into this category, the hitch will fit. 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.

  • Trunk-Mount Bike Rack Options for a 2014 Ford Fusion
  • I checked with several of our prominent bike rack makers - Thule, Yakima and Hollywood Racks - and none offers any trunk-mount bike racks for the 2014 Ford Fusion. When this occurs with a vehicle it generally means that the trunk's sheet metal is too delicate to handle the weight of a loaded bike rack and/or that there is a feature, such as a rear spoiler, that prevents a proper fit. We can offer you an option, however. A Class II trailer hitch such as the Curt # C12091 which bolts on...

  • Will Thule Gateway 2 Bike Carrier # TH9006 Fit My 2011 Toyota Prius
  • I checked with Thule and the Thule Gateway 2 Bike Carrier # TH9006XT will indeed work on your 2011 Toyota Prius. The top portion of the rack will actually go over the spoiler and it will not interfere with the installation. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes you may be interested in purchasing a Thule Bike Adapter Bar # TH982XT

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Subaru Impreza 5-Door Hatchback
  • There are only certain trunk mount bike racks that will fit a 2012 Subaru Impreza hatchback and only if it does NOT have a spoiler. I have included a link to the bike racks listed as a fit. The rack that is listed as a fit that is most like the SuperJoe Pro 2 that you have referenced is the Thule Gateway, # TH9006XT. I have included a link to a video review of the bike rack for you. With any bike rack you choose, if you will be carrying womens, childrens or alternative frame bikes, I...

  • Differences Between the Thule Archway, Gateway and Passage
  • The best of the three you mentioned is the Thule Archway XT part # TH9009XT. This rack has an integrated cable lock and upgraded frame cradles. Aside from that it is the exact same as the # TH9006XT. The big advantage the two mentioned racks have over the # TH910XT is the adjustable arms. This rack has a fixed position for the arms of the rack so the bikes might be carried at a sharp angle. The other two racks allow you to adjust the angle of the arms so that the bikes can be carried...

  • Which Thule Trunk Mounted Bike Racks Are Compatible With My 2011 Honda Fit
  • Yes, according to Thule, there are several trunk mount bike rack options that will fit the 2011 Honda Fit. The item you selected, Thule Passage 2, # TH910XT, is listed as a fit for your vehicle.

  • Bike Rack Solution for 2008 Saturn Sky
  • Your best bet would be to install a hitch and use a hitch-mounted bike rack, as none of the trunk-mounted bike racks that we offer are compatible with your 2008 Saturn Sky. I would recommend the Draw-Tite Class I Receiver, part # 24833. We have several racks with a two bike capacity that are compatible with a Class I receiver. I would recommend the Swagman Trailhead, part # S63360, along with the locking anti-rattle hitch pin, part # S64029. To carry womens bikes or bikes with sharply...

  • Trunk Mount 2 Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2007 Volvo XC70
  • I do have some trunk mount bike rack recommendations for your 2007 Volvo XC70 but the ProSeries # PS63139 bike rack is not a verified fit. Instead, take a look at the Yakima KingJoe Pro 2 Bike Rack, # Y02619. The rack includes anti-sway cradles, folding arms, and features a molded rubber base to protect vehicle paint. You could also use the Thule Gateway 3, # TH9006XT. It, also features anti-sway cradles, folding arms, and a molded rubber base. I have included a link to a video review...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendations for 2010 Infiniti G37 Coupe
  • Thule states that three of their racks, the Archway part # TH9009XT, the Gateway part # TH9006XT and the Passage part # TH910XT will work well with your vehicle. The Gateway would be a good choice, it features padded anti-sway cradles that will keep your bikes safe and secure. For womens bikes or bikes with sharply angled top tubes or step-through frames, using a frame adapter like part # TH982XT is recommended. The adapter spans the distance between the seat post and the handle bar...

  • Mounting Side Straps for Thule Gateway Trunk Mount Bike Carrier on a 2004 Infinity G35 Coupe
  • There isn't a specific place the side hooks have to go on the Thule Gateway trunk mount bike carrier # TH9006XT. If they will stay in place lower or higher then it is acceptable to place them there. The side straps help prevent the rack from sliding left or right. If you can, tighten them both at the same time or go back and forth tightening one then the other until both are sufficiently tight.

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2002 Lexus RX300

In addition to the Raceway 2, # TH9001PRO, there are several other 2 bike racks which I have listed below. Thule Gateway 2, # TH9006XT Thule Archway 2, # TH9009XT Thule Raceway 3 Platform, # TH9003PRO Thule Passage 2, # TH910XT Out of all of these racks, I recommend the Raceway 2, # TH9001PRO, that you have referenced.

  • Will The Thule Raceway Platform 2 Bike Carrier Fit On My 2000 BMW 323i Sport Wagon

The reason it wont work is because of the weight. For a similar trunk bike rack, checkout the Thule Raceway 2 Bike Carrier, part # TH9001PRO. The other trunk mount bike racks from Thule that will fit your vehicle include the Thule Archway # TH9009XT, the Thule Gateway # TH9006XT, and the...

  • 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 would be a great 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 # TH9001PRO/TH9002PRO is also a great bike rack. Instead of straps that need to be adjusted, the Raceway uses 4 ratcheting cables...

  • I checked with Thule and the Gateway 2 Trunk Mounted Bike Carrier # TH9006XT that you referenced is confirmed to fit your 2009 Pontiac Vibe. I have linked you to a demonstration video featuring the Gateway bike rack. The best way to prevent theft of a trunk mounted bike rack is to have it installed only when you are transporting bikes and then remove it when you are parked and are away from your vehicle. Any time an accessory like a bike rack is in direct contact with a painted portion...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation For a 2004 Lexus GX470 With a Spoiler

This rack holds two bikes, has anti-sway arms and folds up for storage. This is your basic, sturdy, economical bike rack. The other bike rack I recommend is the Thule Archway # TH9009XT which has a few more bells and whistles. This rack also holds two bikes, has an integrated locking cable and has an additional layer of cushioning to help...

The best option would be to use a trunk mount bike rack. It is actually the more economical choice and they are not permanent installations. According to Thule there are several options. I have listed them below. Passage 2, # TH910XT Passage 3, # TH911XT Gateway 2, # TH9006XT Gateway 3, # TH9007 Archway 2, # TH9009XT Archway...

The Thule Gateway bike rack is a new modern aerodynamic design with independently adjusting arms that allow you to carry your bikes at the angle you want. It has a total weight capacity of 70 lbs. The Yakima King Joe bike rack is very similar, but has a lower weight capacity (60 lbs) and does not come with the security...
