Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.

Thule Archway XT spoiler-clearing arced base

The Thule Archway XT is a premium 2-bike trunk rack with long, arcing body tubes designed to clear most factory spoilers. Hold Fast cradles with road dampening technology (RDT) offer extra protection against road shock and vibrations and are suitable for carbon fiber frames. A built-in One-Key System cable lock and TrunkLocker passive security strap help protect your bikes and rack. The patented FitDial mounting system offers quick and easy setup on most vehicles, and independently adjustable dual arms let you transport a wide variety of bike sizes and frame styles.

Patented FitDial System

Thule Archway patented 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 Archway XT 6-strap attachment system

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 Archway XT 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.

Protective Foam Pads

Thule Archway XT paint-protecting foam pads

Oversized foam pads on the Archway 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 Anti-Sway Cradles with Road Dampening Technology (RDT)

Thule Archway XT Hold Fast RDT cradles

The Archway XT includes premium Hold Fast anti-sway cradles with road dampening technology (RDT), designed for use with carbon fiber bike frames. RDT is composed of 2 layers. The inner layers of the cradles are made of soft fingers that flex to absorb large shocks and jolts from the road. The second, upper layer is composed of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), a durable, gel-like material with enough flex and grip to absorb road shock and reduce vibration for a smoother ride. The cradles include No-Sway cages that provide a third contact point for the bike, preventing sway and bike-to-bike contact. The cages also have TPE bumper strips that protect your bike frames from scratches.

Independently Adjustable Arms

Thule Archway XT adjustable dual arms

The Archway XT has narrowly spaced arms that make loading and unloading bikes hassle-free. These arms adjust independently of the base and each other with 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 Archway XT arm-adjusting Cinch Levers

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.

Integrated Cable Lock and Trunk Security Strap

Thule Archway XT integrated cable lock

The Archway XT includes an integrated cable lock to secure your bikes to the rack. The cable includes a One-Key System lock cylinder that can be swapped out if you own other Thule products and want to use the same key to lock them all.

Thule Archway XT TrunkLocker security strap

A TrunkLocker trunk strap is also included for passive security. This steel-reinforced cable wraps around the rack and the anchor stores inside the trunk, securing the rack to your vehicle when the trunk lid is closed and locked.

2014 Toyota Camry

This is a great rack! Not perfect, but it is great. Once I figured out the configuration for my 2014 Toyota Camry, it went on quickly and held my Giant Liv Avail 2 road bike perfectly. Not much wiggle in the bike at all; the small adjustable stability arm/clamp does a great job at minimizing any sway of the bike while driving. The rack itself is light and easy to take on and off. I am leaving the rack on the car currently, as I am in the military and transport my bike back and forth to work and ride during my lunch for afternoon cardio. The only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars is because the arms that actually hold the bike, fold down when the bike isn't being carried. Although this is a great feature, getting the arms to actually fold and come back up can be a bit of a pain since you have to line up the teeth perfectly. It takes a little wiggle and jiggle to get them seated properly. If this were a little smoother, it would definitely be a 5 star rack. Maybe this will become a little smoother after a little more breaking in. I have only had it 4 days and only driven around town. I will be taking it on a 7 hour road trip in about 6 weeks and will update my review then. etrailer was awesome to do business with and the shipping was ridiculously fast! Extremely impressed with the customer service. Definitely a FIVE STAR COMPANY from my experience. Will absolutely do business with etrailer in the future. 180656

2017 Chevrolet Suburban

The Thule bike rack that I received it from etrailer appeared to be oxidized on the aluminum parts of the unit. When I went to tighten one of the hatch straps, the locking mechanism broke. It seemed like it was made of a poor quality "pot metal". I called Thule directly and spoke with a customer service rep. Without so much as another word he told me that he would send out a replacement unit. I received the replacement unit within 5 days. It is unwieldy to install (and for that matter, keep in place) on my 2017 Volvo XC60 and seems to come lose before too many curves and bumps in the road are passed. It may by my vehicle, but I would not trust this rack for any long distance driving/bike hauling, unless you like constantly looking in your rearview mirror to ensure that your bikes are secure! For short trips its probably OK but it is time consuming to install....so I just take my gas guzzling Suburban with its receiver hitch bike rack, bite the gas fillup bullet, and enjoy a day or hour or two of bicycling! I would not purchase this bike rack again. 439690

Works great. Fits my 2016 Kia Soul perfectly. I’d highly recommend this product for anyone who wants a sturdy, dependable bike carrier. 489075

After a year on and off of my Kia, still holding up like a champ. I’d have to rank it as the best bike carrier of this type that I’ve ever owned. 5 out of 5 stars from me.

2016 Toyota Camry

Mounted the rack on 2016 Toyota Camry and that was followed by mounting GT women bike. Realized that perhaps this wasn't a good option for type of bikes that have triangular shape bar (where horizontal bar connects to the vertical bar- picture attached). As a result there is not enough room for vertical bar to be fasten properly, bike is not stable when driving around (plastic/rubber piece on the rack that is suppose to hug the vertical bar wouldn't even get close to the bar). Had to drive back to home and now checking options to return the rack or look for some adopter that can compensate the shortcoming. 513162

We have a solution for your problem. A frame adapter bar like # 64005
Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes
will span the distance between the seat post and handlebar gooseneck. Not only would this create a level attachment point for the bike rack and allow the bike to be carried so its level, but itll make it easier to attach the secondary anti-sway strap. Ill link you to a product video showing how the adapter works.

BRILLIANT!!! This was pretty easy to install and is quite durable. The genius part about this is that they have a strap with a puck on it so you can slide that in your trunk so no one can steal your rack. They also have a lock system to put around the bike so no one can steal your bike, like if you went into a store or something. Constructed very well. I highly recommend these before any other cheap bike rack. Looks like they did think of everything. Watch the videos they provide on the web sight to give you more confidence in your installation. Might be easy, but not as simple as a cheap rack. I love it!!! 717253

Honda Accord

I bought the Thule bike rack for my Honda Accord 1 year ago so I could haul our bikes to trails around the state. It took about 45 minutes for the initial installation since I had to get the adjustments right, but now it takes less than 5 minutes. Very easy. I was skeptical that it would securely hold our 2 bikes, but I've used it many times without any problems on 70 mph interstate, in the city, and on rural roads. Great product. 696980

My bike rack was easy to install and looks good on my car! I did install some 3M protective paint film where the rack sits on my deck lid and bumber to limit scratches on my black paint. 625614

I just took the rack out for its inaugural run and I couldn't be more pleased with how easy it is and how quietly and stably it rides. I also give kudos to etrailer because the first shipment was a faulty product and as soon as I mentioned it, a new one was on the way. Great service and great product. I would highly recommend both to friends and family. 592893

2004 Toyota Camry

This is my first modern bike rack, except for a much cruder, simpler one that I had back in the 70s. I bought the 2-bike Thule for my 2004 Toyota Camry, mostly to carry a single bike, but just in case I have an occasional guest. After reviewing the video on the etrailer web site, I took the Thule instruction manual out to the garage to follow carefully through the steps. Installation was a bit more time-consuming than I had anticipated, probably mostly because I wanted to be sure I was getting it right. I might have done better attempting the installation by following the video, as etrailer's documentation is much better than the drawings in the manual. The drawings are too close-up, and don't provide enough context (to give me a perspective of how it's supposed to look. I think (and I'm hoping) that removing and replacing the rack will get easier on subsequent tries. Now that everything is installed and double-checked, I'm confident that this will be a sturdy, reliable bike rack. I do recommend for first-timers like me that you drive around for a bit without the bike on the rack, in order to get used to seeing it in your rear-view mirror, as well as to get used to pulling into and out of parking spaces. 522148

Service from your company was great. The product works but for my model vehicle the driver does have to pay attention to the straps when in motion. The straps will loosen due to the weight of the bicycles. I had 2 bicycles on the rack and I would stop every 10 miles to check. I used to bungee cords to supplement the straps by hooking the rack with the cords to the roof rack. It helped but the best rack Ive used is s a trailer rack. Thank you for the follow up. 473654

I was finally able to use the bike carrier. Is was fairly early to put on the vehicle. It's so much easier, than loading the bike into the trunk. The customer service is also excellent.

Ask the Experts about this Thule Trunk Bike Racks

  • Does Trunk Mount Bike Rack Need to be Removed for Hatch Access on a 2011 Honda Element
    Yes, you will need to remove the Kuat Highline 2 Bike Rack # HIT2S from the trunk of your 2011 Honda Element before opening up the tailgate and upper door. This is the same case for all trunk mount bike racks on any vehicle. If you are wanting to have unrestricted access to the rear hatch area of your Honda Element without removing your bikes or bike rack then you can install a trailer hitch and use a swing-away bike rack. For this application I recommend the Draw-Tite # 75659 which...

    Yes, I checked with Thule and the Thule Archway Trunk Rack part # TH9009XT that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 2014 Infiniti Q50 so I would recommend it for you. As long as you keep the trunk surface and rack mounting surface clean as well as not overload or overtighten the rack you should have no problems with damage on your vehicle. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2012 Lexus RX 450 H
    The spoiler on your 2012 Lexus RX 450h is going to prevent a trunk mount bike rack from being installed. The best option would be a trailer hitch. However, you will need to consult the lease agreement and the dealership from which the vehicle was leased to determine if you can install a hitch. If you can install a trailer hitch, I recommend the Draw-Tite hitch # 75676. There is no drilling to install the hitch but you would need to trim or remove a rubber air deflector/fascia to install...

  • Availability of Trailer Hitch for 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT Sport
    You are correct that there is unfortunately not a trailer hitch available that will fit the Sport model of your 2019 Hyundai Elantra. It does look like it's the slightly different exhaust design on the Sport model that prevents a fit with the trailer hitches for the base model Elantra. There is a chance that a hitch might become available for the Sport model but there is not one for the 2018 Elantra GT Sport either, which means it is pretty unlikely. If you are looking to transport...

  • Will a Woman's Bike Fit the Thule Archway Trunk Bike Rack on a 2016 Toyota Corolla
    Yes, you can mount a woman's framed bike on the Thule Archway bike rack # TH9009XT. There are 2 ways you can do this. First you can adjust each of the arms independently so that the bike is carried level. But if you are carrying more than 1 bike at a time then you will need to use the second method which is to use an adapter bar such as # 64005. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level and will provide better ground clearance. I have linked a video showing how the adapter works.

  • Is the Thule Bike Adapter Required for Carrying Womens Bikes on Hanging Bike Rack
    The Thule Archway 2 Bike Carrier # TH9009XT that you referenced will work on your 2007 Toyota Solara. Depending on the angle of the top tube of your womens bikes you might not necessarily need a top tube adapter like the # TH982XT, but if you were to use one it would allow you to carry the bikes level which will allow the bikes to be loaded and unloaded easier as well as maximize the ground clearance you would have between the ground and your bike wheels. If your daughters bike has a...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Carrier for 1,200 Mile Trip for a 2012 Lexus CT 200h
    Thule has tested the Archway trunk mount bike carrier # TH9009XT on a 2012 Lexus CT 200h. Probably not for 1200 miles but enough to determine that it fits safely. This is a good road trip bike carrier. It features anti-sway cradles, passive security strap, and an integrated cable lock in the last bike position. The 6-strap design will keep the carrier secure to the vehicle and the anti-sway cradles will reduce bike movement. An excellent choice. If you will be carrying any bikes that...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for 2013 Honda CrossTour
    Based on what you listed as wanting for a bike rack solution for your 2013 Honda Crosstour a hitch and hitch mounted rack would be your best option. Trunk racks are great but if your plan is to leave the rack on for extended periods of time and have it secure with locks a hitch rack would be way better than a trunk rack. For a hitch you would want the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24852. The Swagman XTC2, part # S64670 is one of the most popular racks because it's so easy to use, and because...

    The Thule Archway XT 2-Bike Rack - Trunk Mount - Adjustable Arms # TH9009XT is a confirmed fit for your 2011 BMW 323i that will be able to handle any bikes that are 35 lbs or less. If your full suspension mountain bike has an alternative frame style, you may want to consider using a bike adapter bar like the Thule Bike Adapter Bar for Women's and Alternative Frame Bikes # TH982XT or # 64005 to create a top frame rail between the bike seat post and the handlebars. This allows for level...

  • Will the Thule Archway Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe
    Thule does list the Archway, # TH9009XT, as a fit for a 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe. If your Santa Fe is equipped with a rear wiper, you cannot use the wiper with the bike rack attached. I have included a link to the installation details and a link to a video featuring the bike rack for you. If you will be carrying womens, childrens, or alternative frame bikes, I recommend using the bike adapter bar, # TH982XT, for greater ground clearance and to carry the bikes more level. I have included...
