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 Passage Fit Dial system

The Thule Passage offers an affordable, safe way to transport three bikes without a hitch. The Passage mounts to the rear of your vehicle with six integrated straps and Thule's patented Fit Dial system, which adjusts the rack base to ensure a snug fit.


The Passage includes cushioned anti-sway cradles with Thule's No-Sway Cage accessories to prevent bike-to-bike contact during transport. The anti-sway cradles also keep your bikes from making contact with the vehicle.


The carrier's dual support arms provide stability for your bikes during transit, and the arms conveniently fold down when not in use for additional rear clearance and easy storage.

Great product. Easy to install and use. Very sturdy and holds bikes while staying in place. We like to bike on different trails and this makes transporting our bikes very manageable. We are very pleased. 694043

I had no trouble installing the bike rack; I give it such a poor rating because it did not perform its essential task: remaining in position to keep the bicycles in place. Specifically, the bike arm did not lock into the carrier sufficiently for a road trip. That is, on one of the arms, the button did not remain engaged in the hub to keep the bike arm stationary (picture of faulty hub with "engaged" button). I think this was a function of the hub and not the button because after a the bicycle first dragged on the highway, we removed all the bikes and switched the bike arms. Nevertheless, the same hub did not keep the button engaged and the arm gradually slipped toward the ground (we relied on rope and bungee cords to complete the trip). Two other complaints (1) women's bikes are not so "unconventional"; the need for an adapter should be more prominently advertised, and (2) getting the third bicycle on the rack is next to impossible--there should be a video showing how this can be achieved. 433907

The rack arrived yesterday and my husband put it together and we attached it to the back of our 2012 Camry without any difficulty. We put one bike on it but I need to get an adapter bar connected to mine before I can try putting mine on. The directions were fairly easy and it seems like it will work out fine, tho we haven't actually used it yet 549026

Great product, high quality, fits our Outback perfectly. Bike fits the rack great. Painless ordering with etrailer and prompt delivery. Only concern was that the shipper banged up the box pretty hard, but the bike rack was not damaged. 541922


Comments
The rack is working out great. Weve used it to haul bikes cross-country highway driving and it is very stable and secure. Easier to fit two bikes on it versus three, but we have used it for three bikes with no real issues.

Fits perfectly on our Lexus CT200h. Only on the old LS400, the side straps have to be fastened to the wheel arch edge, since the upper trunklid gap is to narrow for inserting the strap hooks. Mounting of two bikes is (with some routine) quickly done, and they stay safe even for longer and faster routes. For transporting three (mountain) bikes, though, the design doesn't seem big and robust enough. Nevertheless, the price-benefit-fun ratios are way better than reasonable. 453652

great rack easy to assemble, took it out of the box and transported on mini van several hundred miles, and 3 bikes without problem easy to assemble, I have worked with many bike racks and this works well and also protects the car with the bumpers 806747

My family and I use this bike rack almost year round. The bike rack is sturdy and keeps the bikes from swaying. I am usually nervous whenever I haul anything but I feel confident that everything is secure. I think my favorite aspect of this bike rack is that I can switch it between the cars in our home without issue. 775033

Subaru Outback Wagon

This bike rack works perfectly on my midsize SUV (Subaru Outback). It is easy to install, secure and safe to use, and convenient to store. The instillation takes about 3-5 minutes. I have used it for dozens of rides, several of which were 2+ hours' drive away, and I've never had an issue with safety or security. And I live in New York City where storage is a major issue, and the way it folds up and uses very little space when stored is very convenient. I highly recommend this bike rack. 664520

After using this bike carrier for several months, it proved to be not sturdy enough for the two bikes we have even though it is a three bike carrier. I decided to purchase a trailer hitch and purchase a trailer hitch bike carrier. The hitch and carrier work much better to my satisfaction. 578671

    Thule test fit their Passage 3 bike rack part # TH911XT and found that the spoiler of the vehicle is strong enough for the rack to install without issue. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point.

    There are several 3 bike trunk mount racks that Thule lists as a fit for the 2005 Porsche Cayenne. I have included a link to them for you. If you are looking for the safest and most secure rack with the best features, go with the Raceway, # TH9002PRO. This rack features 4 retractable cables, rather than straps, to secure the rack to the back of the vehicle. This creates not only a secure attachment to the vehicle but also makes the rack quick and easy to install and remove. The Raceway...

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.

  • Will Using a Trunk Mount Bike Rack Damage the Automatic Trunk Release on a 2012 BMW 5 Series
    The Thule Passage 3, # TH911XT, will fit the 2012 BMW 5 series. However, on any vehicle you should not attempt to open the trunk with the bike rack attached because it is not rated for the extra weight and it can also cause the trunk to fall on you. It also affects how the rack attaches to the vehicle. Provided that you do not attempt to open the trunk with the rack attached it should not have any effect on the trunk release. I have included a link to the installation instructions. If...

  • Comparing Thule Passage and Saris Bones Bike Rack
    If I personally had to choose between the two, I'd go with the Thule # TH911XT. I actually prefer the looks of the # SA805BL Saris Bones, but I don't care for the way that the weight of the bikes and the rack rest on feet that small. Spreading the weight over a larger area like the Archway does lessens the chances that the vehicle will be damaged, and makes the whole unit more stable. Both rack manufacturer offers a limited lifetime warranty, so you really can't go wrong either way. If...

    I believe I have a hitch recommendation for your 2011 Honda Odyssey, but I checked with all of our trunk mounted bike manufacturers and none of them recommend the use of a trunk mounted bike rack on your vehicle. I believe the best option you have for carrying bikes with your vehicle would be to have a hitch installed on your vehicle and then get a hitch mounted bike rack. For a hitch I would recommend you get a Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75270. This is a Class III hitch that would...

    I checked with Thule and the Thule Passage part # TH911XT that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2010 Mazda 3 hatchback so I would recommend it for you. Here are the install notes for using the rack on your car: Place top clips in the gap at the front edge of the top of the trunk, hatch or door. Place lower clips in the bottom edge of trunk or hatch. Lower arm of carrier should be positioned on upper tier of bumper.

    If your 2015 Nissan Pathfinder has that spoiler piece at the top of the rear hatch then there is only 1 trunk mount carrier that I recommend; the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top rack # HRF2-3. This rack has an additional upper arm piece that moves the top straps up and over that spoiler so no weight is put on it (since the spoiler is not meant to support weight). I have included a link to a video that shows how it works. If the Pathfinder does not have that spoiler then I recommend the...

  • Comparing the Thule Passage and Gateway Trunk Mount Bike Racks for a 2008 Volvo XC90
    The main difference between the Thule Passage # TH911XT and the Gateway # TH9007XT is how each functions. The Passage arms (that hold the bikes) can only move with the upper leg. This limits the vehicles that it fits and its ability to hold bikes level . The Gateway arms move independently of the upper and lower legs and each other. This allows for more vehicle fits and greater flexibility for mounting bikes level. The Passage requires removing a nut and bolt on each arm to make...

  • Are Adapter Bars Required to Load Womens Bikes on the Thule Passage Trunk Mount Bike Carrier
    If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike would) then I recommend using bike adapter bar # 64005 as a lower cost alternative. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level and will provide better ground clearance. I have to use these adapters and without them my wife's bike would be at a severe angle and I would not be able to load my son's bike at all. I have linked a video showing how the adapter works.

    As long as your 3 mountain bikes remain under the 105 lb weight capacity of the Thule Passage 3 Bike Rack, # TH911XT, you will have no problem carrying them on your 2010 Chrysler Town and Country. As a safety tip, I recommend putting the largest/heaviest bike closest to the vehicle. One thing to keep in mind is that mountain bikes can often have large frames and mounting three of them on one bike rack can be troublesome.

  • Recommended 4-Bike Rack for Toyota Highlander
    Since you have 4 bikes to transport on your Toyota Highlander your best option is to use a 4-bike hitch-mount rack. There are no trunk-mount bike carriers that have a 4-bike capacity because such a rack would put too much weight on a car's rear hatch or trunk, and could potentially dent the trunk/hatch or damage the hinge. If your Highlander does not have a 2-inch Class III hitch installed on it you will need to put one on the car first. Since I do not know your Highlander's model year,...

    The Thule Venture is the same bike rack as the Thule Passage # TH911XT and the Passage is a confirmed fit for your 2015 Toyota RAV4. However, since your RAV4 has a spoiler you will want to make sure there is a gap at the top of your rear spoiler for the mounting strap to pass through and attach to the edge of the rear hatch (rather than the straps passing up and over the spoiler). Some rear top spoilers do not have this gap, so you will want to make sure your vehicle does. It's...

    Glad to hear that you are enjoying the Thule Passage # TH911XT! You are correct that nothing is completely "theft-proof" but adding something to discourage theft is a smart idea. I recommend using the Thule Passive Security Strap # TH533, which has dual steel cables built-in, for the Passage and then a cable lock like part # e98891 for the bikes. If you want to make it more daunting just add an additional strap or cable.
