Video Transcript for Thule Roof Rack XADAPT2 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Thule XADAPT2 AeroBlade and Xsporter Load Bar Adapter for Roof-Mounted Carriers. This kit allows you to mount your roof-mounted carriers to Thule load bars with channels, like the Rapid Aero, AeroBlade, and Xsporter load bars. It works with the Thule Big Mouth or the upright bike racks 599XT and 599XTR, and also the Thule FlatTop ski carriers TH724 and 725.All the pieces that you get are laid out right here. You get your cam lever handle. You get the necessary bolts. You get the plates and the spacers.

In the instructions, you're going to notice that it has, really, three different sets of instructions. The first one is for using the 599 XT Ultimate Upright Bike Carrier. For this setup, you would use three of the 25 millimeter T-bolts, and then you would use three of the spacers. It walks you through exactly how to get that installed. I just want to show you that process there, and then you have another set of instructions right here.This one is for mounting the 599 XTR Ultimate Upright Bike Rack.

In this case, you would need to use the fastener plate, which is the large plate, the large spacer, and then you would need to use the cam handle with the barrel nut, and you would need to use all three smaller spacers as well as all three square head bolts. Again, it walks you through how to get that installed. It all just slides into the T-slots. Really easy process, does a great job in walking you through the whole installation setup.Then the last thing I want to mention is for the ski carriers, this is that third set of instructions I'm talking about. You'll see here that the only thing that's needed is four of the 35 millimeter T-bolts, and they slide in.

They go right up through the carrier, and then it just says you'd follow the ski carrier instructions for proper tightening of the ski carrier to the rack. So, easy-to-use design. Again, this is an adapter kit that allows you to mount your roof-mounted carriers to Thule load bars with channels such as the Rapid Aero, AeroBlade, and Xsporter load bars.

Hats off to etrailer for carrying and timely delivery to get parts for things I need. I had these bicycle racks for a while and lost two of the adapters in a move. I couldn't even figure out how to get them from the dealer / manufacturer, but with etrailer it was easy. They are my "go to" source for parts when it comes to trailers parts and accessories. Thanks! 430690

I used this to fit an old (1994) Thule Big Mouth bike rack to a factory 1994 VW Jetta Votex roof rack. The bike rack was originally fitted to a Thule square tube rack. Fits perfect, but has many extra parts. The only parts that were needed my me were 3 square plastic tabs and 3 of the "T" bolts, so there are many left overs, but for the price I don't think I can complain much. I'm glad the kit was available. Instructions were pretty useless. 161538

I used the XADAPT2 kit to convert my Thule Bigmouth bike carriers to fit the OEM Volkswagen cross bars on my 2016 Jetta sedan. The bike carriers originally had clamps to fit the Thule square cross bars, and this kit allowed me to convert the carriers to fit in the T-slots of the VW cross bars. The kit was originally designed for older VWs, but the T-slot dimensions have not changed for the modern VW cross bars. I would venture to guess that the kit should work for the OEM cross bars of any modern VW rather than just the Jetta, since the VW bike carriers are not model specific. A great quality kit, and perfect for my application! 252094

Very good quality product with a little problem. Track is connected to a bracket by one bolt and the bolt was getting loose. I had to buy a little bit longer bolt, use a spring washer and washer, problem solved. See picture. Assembly instructions could be better. 524185

Thule XADAPT2 AeroBlade and Xsporter Load Bar Adapter for Roof-Mounted Carriers This kit solved the problem of attaching a new Thule Big Mouth Upright bike rack to an existing Thule Aero bar. All the parts and pieces fit together in what is a truly elegant design to mate the bike rack to the bar without having to upgrade to a new bar costing $200.00, so the added benefit is a significant cost saving. Thanks, etrailer 274487

Product is great and made for a nice clean attachment of the Big Mouth bike rack to my Thule areo blade system. Instructions race much to be desired but assembly was somewhat instinctual looking at the pieces. 217412

Well, if you rely strictly on the Thule instructions, you're in for a real treat. I would actually claim it would be nearly impossible to install your 599XTR on aerobars using just those instructions. I ended up looking up some accompanying videos online to assist with my conceptualization of the install process. Once I figured it out, it was VERY easy to install the adapter kit and the 599XTR Wide Mouths. Nice engineering. 213050

Yeah, top notch item. You guys are my go-to for anything rack and trailer related, for sure.

The XADAPT2 works as designed. I ordered one to install a 1994-era Thule 599 Upright Bike Carrier (predates the 599xt and 599xtr Big Mouth carriers) onto my new Thule Aeroblade load bars. Earlier, I installed the Aeroblade load bars and 480R Rapid Traverse Foot Pack onto my car, so now those adjustments were already made. Later I took the bars off the car until I was ready to try the upright installation. I placed the bars with foot packs across a couple of wooden chairs in sawhorse fashion, which was much better than working on the floor. I printed the XADAPT2 instructions from the Thule website, laid out all my parts, and went to work. The XADAPT2 contains everything you need. Fortunately, the Thule mounting plates have stayed basically the same since the original 599 upright. The cam handle (lever) that came with the XADAPT2 is slightly different from my originals and actually easier to clamp down. You don't have make full 360 degree turns as you seek the right clamping pressure like the earlier design. This is especially helpful because the XADAPT2 spacers add enough shim height that the clamp is either too tight or too loose. With the 180 degree turns you can get the right amount of clamping force without risking damage to the Aeroblade bars. I like this newer style lever so much that I was able to order some to use on the front plate. 172084

The instructions were pretty awful to decipher (mostly because there are parts here for several different set-ups depending on your car and bar). The parts were great, though, and it all worked out nicely. And, as always, e-trailer has my very highest rating in terms of processing and shipping orders. They always amaze me. 124830

I used this adapter kit to mount Thule SUP Taxi to my Thule TracRac - TracOne racks. The original SUP Taxi mount-straps were not long to fit these racks, even though the buyers guide indicates they are. This adapter kit made it possible to secure the SUP taxi right to the bar. So glad you had this available! Now I'm ready for our trip to the FL Keys! 649238

Needed this to adapt a Rocky Mounts Driveshaft rack from my old truck to the new one. These fit perfectly in the channel on the 2019 Ram's 'sport utility bar', which is a Thule 393. A little more bolt length than I needed but the extra is not hurting anything... 583216

These bolts solved the issue when there was limited thread engagement on original bolts assembling hullaport kayak carriers on aeroblade bars. I've made many trips to the water without needing to worry a nut might vibrate off. Fits nicely, performs well. Would have been hard to find elsewhere. 391872

Review from a similar Thule Xadapt in Accessories and Parts


Tried unsuccessfully with a phone call to etrailer to get information before placing the order on the thread pitch (thread count). Despite not getting the answer I decided to take a chance and order. These we the perfect size for my needs but the thread pitch is different so the standard Thule knob will not work on these. They are a M6 diameter but the threads are much finer, I believe a 0.7 instead of the standard 1.0. I have searched for M6 wing nuts of any brand with a thread pitch of 0.7 but cannot find any. On a positive note I did receive the shipment in a timely manner. 296659

The Thule Bike Rack Adaptor to go from square bars to aero cross bars was an easy purchase. Otherwise, I would have had to two new bike racks. It saved me a lot of money! etrailer.com was a great place to buy the needed parts, and they were quick with shipping them to me. I watched their video on the installation, and within an hour, both racks were installed and ready to go. Thanks etrailer.com for easy transaction. 273723

I used the adapter to fit a Thule Peloton bike carrier (previously used with square Thule load bars) to the factory roof rack on our Mini Clubman. The adapter works out well in this application; the only thing to note is that re-using the round-head bolts that came with the Peloton carrier with the thick vinyl-coated bracket in this adapter kit results in VERY little room to fit the nuts that hold the bracket on -- it just about works, and seems to do so safely, but it is a very tight fit. 420303
