Circuit XT Fork-Mount Bike Rack

The stylish, aerodynamic Thule Circuit XT transports 1 bike on the roof of your vehicle and works on almost any roof rack crossbar system. It's ready out of the box to transport bikes with 9-mm quick-release skewers, and it also works with 15-mm, 20-mm, and lefty forks with an adapter (sold separately). Padded universal-fit mounting brackets offer tool-free installation and a smooth rooftop ride for your bikes. The Circuit's lightweight aluminum wheel tray is D-shaped for maximum rigidity, and its matte black finish gives the rack a sleek look that complements any vehicle.


AeroHead Fork Block with SecureSkewer

AeroHead Fork BlockInterlocking Lever

The Circuit's aeronautically inspired lines begin with the torpedo-shaped AeroHead fork block. The fork block contains an interlocking nose lever and SecureSkewer that work together to fasten your bike to the rack and the rack to your vehicle.


AeroHead Fork Block

The Circuit XT's 9-mm quick-release SecureSkewer grips your bike's front fork and has single-hand adjustability for easy installation.


Fork-Mount Installation

Simply drop your fork onto the skewer, adjust the dial with one hand while holding the bike steady with the other, and then close the cam-action lever to secure the bike in place. Adapters (sold separately) are required to mount bikes with lefty, 15-mm, or 20-mm thru-axle forks.


One-Key Lock System

You can lock your bike to the rack and the rack to your crossbars by adding a One-Key System lock cylinder (TH450200 - sold separately) to the SecureSkewer. When you are installing the rack, the skewer is inserted through the nose lever. So locking the skewer prevents the nose lever from being operated.


High-Walled Rear-Wheel Cradle

Sliding Rear-Wheel Cradle

The Circuit's 1-piece rear-wheel cradle helps steady your bike on the rack by restricting side-to-side movement. The curved, high-walled design accommodates most bike tire widths - from narrow 1" road bike tires to 3" mountain bike tires, and anything in between. The cradle slides along the length of the rack to accommodate different bike wheelbases, and it won't interfere with the rack's rear mounting hardware. The ratcheting wheel strap lets you secure your bike wheel from either side of the rack, and a movable foam pad prevents the strap from scratching and scuffing your rim.


Tool-Free Installation with Universal Mounting Hardware

Adjustable Mounting Slot 1Adjustable Mounting Slot 3

You can mount the Circuit's fork block to your crossbar in a few short steps. Just open the AeroHead nose lever, seat the mounting bracket in 1 of the 3 slots (depending on the size of your crossbar), and slide the T-bolt into place on the bracket.


Mounting Bracket

Tighten the T-bolt until the bracket is snug against the bottom of your crossbar, then close the cam-action nose lever. Once the nose lever is closed, insert the SecureSkewer through the head to secure the rack to your crossbar.


Rear-Wheel Cradle Assembly

The rear mounting bracket tightens around your crossbar with hand knobs and 2 threaded bolts - the system includes 3 different size bolts to fit crossbars of varying size. The bracket has 1 open end and 1 closed end so you can install and remove the rack without completely removing the bracket.


Installed Rear-Wheel Cradle

To secure it to your crossbar, slide the open end of the bracket onto the bolt and tighten the hand knobs.


The front and rear mounting brackets are padded with thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), a gel-like substance that absorbs road shock and vibrations to reduce the stress of transport on your bikes.


D-Shaped Aluminum Wheel Tray

D-Shaped Aluminum Tray

The Circuit's rustproof, lightweight aluminum wheel tray is D-shaped so it won't flex as much as standard, V-shaped trays. This reduces stress on your bike frame during high winds and hard turns. The tray is also easier to clean with no dirt-collecting corners and crevices, and the stylish, black powder coat finish resists scratches and scuffs.

When the carrier is empty you have to tighten the retaining nut all the way down so the unit can't be stolen (if you have a lock core) and so the lock arm doesn't bounce back and forth. This is a pain in the butt but not a deal-breaker. The unit clamps securely to my aero load bars and holds a bike very well. The price is a bit high for what you get but the quality is great. 130556

Ask the Experts about this Thule Roof Bike Racks

Do you have a question about this Roof Bike Rack?


  • Will the Thule Circuit XT # TH526XT Fit AeroBlade Edge Bars on a 2018 Audi Q5
  • The Thule Circuit XT Roof Bike Rack # TH526XT is a clamp-on style bike rack that fits a crossbar that has max dimensions of 3-1/4" wide x 1-1/2" tall. Since Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack Bars # TH7603B-TH7603B are 3-1/8" wide x 1-1/8" tall your bike racks will fit just fine. This roof rack is compatible with your 2018 Audi Q5 when you use the Fit Kit # THKIT4078. If you would like locks that use the same key for the crossbars and the bike racks then you need the Thule One-Key System...

  • Replacement Wheel Strap for the Thule Circuit XT Roof Bike Rack
  • The correct replacement strap for your Thule Circuit XT Roof Bike Rack # TH526XT is part # 8523285001. If you are also needing the wheel chock assembly and rim protector then those are parts # 7521453001 and # TH8524274001 respectively. The Thule Replacement Wheel Straps # THWS2 fit a different style Thule bike rack.

  • Adapter Needed to Fit Thule Prologue Pack 515 Bike Rack to Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbars
  • Thank you for the details and the picture! Since you have everything to mount your (discontinued) Thule Prologue Pack 515 to the square bars all you need is the Thule Ride-On Adapter # TH532 to mount this bike rack to your Rhino-Rack Vortex crossbars. The only problem is that this adapter is the only thing available for a Prologue Pack bike rack and it is only able to accommodate 2 bikes. So if you only need to transport 2 bikes then you will be all set. Otherwise you need a new bike...

  • Thule Fork Mounted Bike Rack to Fit Factory Crossbars of 2018 Mercedes GLA 45
  • I checked with Thule and the Thule Circuit XT Roof Bike Rack # TH526XT that you referenced is a confirmed fit for the factory crossbars of your 2018 Mercedes Benz GLA 45. Another great option is the Thult OutRide part # TH561020 which would be a very nice option as well. I attached review videos for both racks for you to check out as well.

  • Bike-Carrying Options For 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK Series
  • There are a few options you can consider to carry bikes on your 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK. As you mentioned, it would be easier to use a trunk mount bike carrier, but you would not be able to open the rear hatch with a trunk-mount bike rack installed. A roof rack is another option, but it may be difficult to place bikes on and off the roof in a bike rack. A third option which I recommend is to have a hitch installed and use a hitch-mount bike carrier. This keeps the roof open, and...

  • Replacement Skewer and Rim Protector for a Thule Circuit Roof Bike Carrier
  • The individual pieces are not available for the skewer so you would need to replace it using # 752-0943-001. I can get the rim protector for the strap on your Circuit bike carrier # TH526XT. It is # TH8524274001.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation to fit Thule Square Crossbars
  • The square Thule crossbars are easily used with roof rack mounted bike racks. To see a full list of all the bike racks that fit square crossbars check out the link I attached. A very popular option that allows you to keep the front wheel on your bike is the Thule ProRide part # TH598004 which is a great option. Or if you prefer the style of rack that attaches to the forks of the bike you would want the Thule Paceline part # TH526XT which is a popular rack as well.

  • Will the Thule Circuit XT # TH526XT Fit the Rhino-Rack RVP Roof Rack # RRRVP37 on a 2017 Highlander
  • The Thule Circuit XT # TH526XT will fit crossbars that are up to 3-1/4" wide x 1-1/2" high. The Vortex Aero bars that come with the Rhino-Rack RVP Roof Rack # RRRVP37 measure 3-1/8" wide x 1-1/4" tall so there are no issues there. We actually have a video of this bike rack being installed on a 2016 Toyota Highlander which means it will fit your 2017 model with no issues. The roof rack comes with locks but if you would like to also add locks to your Circuit XT you will need the kit...

  • Option for Carrying 4 Bikes with a 2012 Mazda 5
  • On a Class I hitch you should never carry more than 2 bikes with a hitch mounted bike rack. The reason is because of the additional weight and leverage of the additional 2 bikes would be too much for the hitch/frame and would most likely cause damage. I attached an FAQ on hitch classifications for you to check out. At this time there are only Class I hitches available for your vehicle (like the Curt Trailer Hitch # C11127 you referenced). However, you if you really need to transport...

  • Comparing Thule Circuit TH526 and Circuit XT TH526XT Roof-Mount Bike Carriers
  • The Thule Circuit XT Fork Mount Roof Bike Rack # TH526XT is the latest generation of this rack and replaces the Circuit TH526 which has been discontinued. The XT version is essentially the same except for it's updated skewer assembly that allows one-hand operation of the fork skewer. The linked video illustrates. These bike racks are not left- or right-handed and both now have the wheel strap pad. They will fit factory roof crossbars up to 3-1/4-inches wide x 1-1/2-inches high. If...

  • Roof Rack and Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2007 Saturn Ion
  • For your 2007 Saturn Ion the Inno Roof Rack part numbers # INXB138-2, # INXS250, and # INK214 has been confirmed as a fit. To use the Thule # TH526XT on this rack will require the use of the # Xadapt8 as well so that it will fit the T-slot of the cross bars. This rack will have a 28 inch crossbar spread which is also compatible with the Thule bike rack.

  • Recommended Bike Rack For 2015 Mercedes-Benz GL500
  • There is not a confirmed fit trunk mounted bike rack for your 2015 Mercedes-Benz GL500. I reached out to my contact at Curt and there also is not a hitch that is a confirmed fit. That will limit you to a roof rack option to carry your bikes. My recommendation is the Thule Roof Rack consisting of Thule WingBar Evo - Black - 53" - Qty 2, # TH711420 and the Evo Raised Rail Feet for Thule Crossbars # TH710401. This will give you a nice secure system when you add the locking cylinders...

  • Carrying 6-8 Bikes for a Family of 6 with a 2016 Acura MDX
  • To carry up to 8 bikes on your 2016 Acura MDX I recommend a combination trailer hitch mounted bike rack and roof mounted bike racks. Starting with a trailer hitch, Draw-Tite hitch # 75225 is an excellent choice. This hitch has a 2 inch receiver so it will be compatible with many bike racks. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you. Then for a bike rack I recommend a model that can hold 5 bikes such as the Swagman XP, # S64970. This rack has a single arm...

Also we don't not have any trunk mounted bike racks that are confirmed to fit the V90. However we do carry the Thule Podium Aero Bar Roof Rack as an alternative. A roof rack is the only option we have to carry bikes on your Volvo at this time. The Thule WingBar roof rack produces one of the quietest roof racks on the market.

  • Adding Lock Cylinders to a Thule Circuit Roof Mounted Bike Rack
  • Yes, the Thule lock cylinders # TH450200 will work with your Thule Circuit Roof Bike Rack # TH526XT. If you would like the 6 pack version of the Thule One-Key system to lock your roof rack as well, it's # TH450600. The lock cylinders will include 2 keyed alike cylinders and it's very easy to install. See the diagram I included and you can use a small flat head screwdriver to remove the cap on your Thule Echelon. I included a video review on each product for you as well.

  • Comparing the Yakima ForkLift, Thule Circuit, and Rocky Mounts TieRod Roof Bike Carriers
  • Wind noise is not really something you would want to use to factor in when purchasing a roof mount bike rack. With a bike on the rack, it won't matter because the bike is going to create a lot of drag. And when not carrying the bike you should take the rack off of the roof rack. But I would give a slight edge to the Thule Circuit, # TH526XT. The bullet rounded front and curved "tray" would create less drag. In terms of which is the easiest to use I would give the edge to the Yakima ForkLift,...

Most of the Thule roof-mounted racks that use clamps like the Circuit XT, # TH526XT or the UpRide, # TH599000 will fit your cross bar. Other Thule racks can use an adapter to mount in the slot on top of the bar should fit, as the slot is of similar dimension to those used on Thule Aero Blade cross bars.

The feet of the rack will install securely and permanently on the roof of the camper. For bike racks I would recommend the Thule Circuit XT Fork-Mount Bike Carrier # TH526XT. This is a great rack because of how well it works and how easy it is to use.

As long as your vehicle isn't a 'John Cooper Works' model, you could install a trailer hitch, like part # C11333 and then use a two bike hitch mounted rack like the Swagman Trailhead, part # S63360.

If you have the ProRide XT then you are in luck as you can obtain the Fat Tire Adapter Kit part # TH5981 to carry a bike with tires up to 5" wide. That said, if you have the Circuit XT or Prologue XT there is no way to use either of these with a fat tire bike so your only option...

The minimum spread would be 18 inches. The bike rack can be locked to the crossbars with the addition of the Thule One Key lock core, # TH450200.

  • Recommendation for a Front Hitch and Bike Rack on a 2013 Toyota 4Runner Limited
  • The Curt Front Hitch, # C31054, is an acceptable option to carry two bicycles but keep in mind that when the bikes are loaded, your visibility will more than likely be affected, your vehicle's headlights and air flow to the front of the engine could be obstructed. I also recommend contacting your state's highway patrol department to see if they have any restrictions regarding the height limitation for anything carried on the front of the vehicle.

  • Hitch Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Subaru Outback With Factory Class I Hitch
  • You are correct, Class I trailer hitches are limited to a maximum of 2 bikes. This issue is not the overall weight of the bikes, but the distance from the trailer hitch where the weight of the third bike is placed. Since the third bike is further away from the trailer hitch, it applies more leverage that the hitch cannot handle. It is similar to using pipe extension on a wrench to break a rusty or stubborn bolt. If you were to carry 3 bikes and something fails, there would be no warranty...

The shorter # TH859XT will not allow enough space for the bike carrier to fit in the basket and the crossbar spread is not adequate to span the gap. If you want the bike carrier to ride on bars above the basket for more stability, you would need to use a basket with a crossbar like the Yakima MegaWarrior Extra Large...
