Swagman Upright Roof Mounted Bike Rack Review - 2014 Kia Soul

Today on our 2014 Kia Soul we'll be test fitting the Swagman upright roof mounted bike rack, part number S64720. With a Thule Rapid Traverse Roof Rack system on our vehicle, we'll begin our test fit by placing the bike rack up onto the vehicle's crossbars. We'll go ahead and pull out our hardware and starting with the silver U-bolts, we'll go around the underside of the front bar, up through the pre-drilled holes of the head of the bike rack. We'll then take our black wing nuts to thread down onto the silver U-bolts. We'll then repeat the same process for the other U-bolt at the front part of the bike rack. With that done, we'll move to the rear where this time we'll be sliding the silver U-bolt down through the pre-drilled holes of the bike rack. We'll then take the black plate to go up on the bottom side of the rear cross bar and then we'll install our wing nuts onto the silver U-bolts.



Swagman Fork Down Roof Bike Rack Review - 2014 Kia Soul

Today, on our 2014 Kia Soul, we're going to be test fitting the Swagman fork down, a fork mount, roof bike rack, part number S64710. With our Thule Rapid Traverse roof rack already installed on our Soul, we're going to begin our test fit by placing our bike rack directly onto our load bar. We'll bring one of the U bolts around the underside of our load bar, up through our carrier, and we'll hold it in place using one of our wingnuts. Do the same thing on the other side in the front, and then we'll tighten down all four wingnuts to secure the rack to the vehicle. We'll now move to the rear. This time we're going to take one of the U bolts and put it down through the rack. We'll want one side coming out on each side of our load bar.



SportRack Frame Mount Roof Mounted Bike Rack Review - 2014 Kia Soul

Today on our 2014 Kia Soul, we're going to be test-fitting the SportRack rooft-mounted bike rack, part number SR4611. With our Thule Rapid Traverse Roof Rack System already installed on our Soul, we're going to begin our test fit by placing the rack directly onto our load bars. At the front, we'll bring one of the black rubber-coated U bolts around the underside of our load bar, fit it through the front of the carrier and secure it in place using two of the wing nuts. We'll repeat the same process for the other side of the front of the carrier and then we'll want to snug down all four of our wing nuts to secure our rack to our load bar. With our front secure, we'll move to the rear. At the rear, we're going to take two carriage bolts, place them through our rack. Being sure that they come out on each side of our load bar, we'll then put in the black plastic spacer that will go between the rack and our load bar.



Thule Big Mouth Roof Bike Rack Review - 2014 Kia Soul

Today on our 2014 Kia Soul, we'll be test fitting the Thule Big Mouth roof mounted bike rack, part number TH599XTR. With a Thule Traverse roof rack system on our vehicle, we'll begin our test fit by placing the Big Mouth directly up onto our vehicle's load bars. Starting at the front, we're going to position the L brackets around the front and bottom sides of the load bar, and position the T bolts into the slots of the L brackets. Then we'll tighten down the black wingnuts just a little bit to keep the T bolts from falling out of the slots. We'll then move to the rear, remove one of the black allen bolts, position the black plate on the under side of the rear bar. And insert the remaining bolt into the hole in the plate and reinstall the wingnut. Now we can fully tighten those down and move back to the front to finish tightening the front black wingnuts as well. With everything all tightened down and secured, we're ready to load up a bike. We'll need to undo the front and rear ratcheting strap and pull back on the black handle, which will loosen up the frame clamp.

2014 Kia Soul Bike Rack Questions

  • If your Rollators can fold up relatively flat then they could be placed on a trunk mount bike rack on your 2014 Kia Soul. I recommend going with a model that is designed to carry up to 3 bikes because there will be more space. I recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top rack # HRF2-3 because it will work with or without that little spoiler piece at the top of the hatch on the Kia Soul. Keep in mind that trunk mount racks are not tested for use with Rollators. The other option...

  • I spoke to my contact at Swagman and while she couldn't tell me how low the hook arm of the Swagman XTC-2 bike rack part # S64670 would go she assured me that it would go low enough to attach to your Trek Pure Crank Forward with a step through frame. Review video attached. Some people with step trough frames will also use frame adapter bars like the Swagman Adapter bar part # 64005 to provide a higher attachment point for the bike rack. I attached a review video for this product...

  • One of the best bike racks we offer that is easy to install and remove is the Thule Raceway Pro, part # TH9001PRO. A great feature for this rack is that is weighs less than 20 lbs. This carrier uses a FitDial system which makes securing it to your vehicle a much simpler task. It also features 4 nylon-covered cables to secure the rack to the vehicle instead of 6 straps that most bike carriers use. This also features a One-Key System that secures the bikes to the carrier and...

  • The Thule Raceway you mentioned is my preferred recommendation for a trunk mount bike rack, because it's so easy to install and remove. Since that rack would blow your budget out of the water, the Thule Archway which is available in a two bike # TH9009XT or three bike # TH9010XT model would be my second (but still very good) choice. The Archway uses Thule's upgraded padded cradles for the ultimate in bike protection. The included security strap can be closed in the hatch securing...

  • Your 2014 Kia Soul with a panoramic sun roof will not accommodate a roof rack but if you wish to carry bikes there are a couple different options. The Class-1 hitch recommend is the Curt Trailer Class-1 Hitch # C11419. The Curt Trailer hitch support strap # 18050 is required and helps provide extra support to the receiver when carrying hitch mounted bike racks. The hitch bike rack I would recommend the Thule Helium Aero hitch bike rack # TH9042 (2 bikes). If you prefer a trunk...

  • We have a few bike carriers that will work with the spoiler on the rear of your 2014 Kia Soul. I recommend the Thule Raceway PRO 2-Bike Rack, part # TH9001PRO. This bike rack uses 4 retractable cables with hooks to secure the bike to your vehicle. The vehicle-specific number settings on the patented FitDial makes it easy to fit the bike rack to your Soul. This rack fold flat for easy storage when not in use. Another nice bike rack I recommend is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top...

  • I can help you pick out a setup for your 2014 Kia Soul. The Draw-tite hitch # 24915 you mentioned is the custom fit class 1 hitch for your 2014 Soul. This hitch has a max of 200 lbs. tongue weight and an 1-1/4 inches by 1-1/4 inches receiver opening. All Class 1 hitches have a capacity of 2 bikes only on the rack even if it is a 3 bike rack. My suggestion is to go with a roof rack setup for the third bike or a trunk mounted 3 bike rack. As far as the Swagman # S63365,...

  • The Thule Raceway platform style trunk mount bike rack # TH9003PRO is listed as a fit for your 2014 Kia Soul. If you are carrying just one bike with a carbon frame the weight on the vehicle should not be excessive and it will safely carry the bike. With this bike rack it is possible for it to deform a rear bumper if the load is too heavy. Basically if you are carrying 2 regular steel frame bikes it would likely deform the bumper on the vehicle. If you have any doubts about...

  • There is a way to carry 3 bikes on your 2014 Kia Soul. But the trailer hitches available for your 2014 Kia Soul are Class I trailer hitches. This means that you can only carry up to 2 bikes maximum because any additional bikes would be too far from the receiver and put too much stress on it resulting in damage to the hitch and/or vehicle. To carry 3 bikes you can use a 3-bike trunk mount bike rack such as # TH911XT. This will also be more cost effective since you do not have...

  • For a trunk mounted bike rack confirmed as a fit for your 2014 Kia Soul that would not put any pressure on the spoiler you would want the Hollywood Rack Over the Top part # HRF2 that is specifically designed to fit vehicles with spoiler and fit around them. I attached a review video for more info as well. 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...
