How to Carry Bikes on 2015 Audi A5 Convertible


I see no questions about a convertible . Particularly a 2015 Audi A5 convertible . Does it fit safely ??

I have a bike rack solution for your 2015 Audi A5 convertible but none of the trunk racks we offer fit the convertibles. You'd want to go with a hitch mounted solution. For that we have two hitches available for your 2015 Audi A5 that could work for you depending on your exhaust style. Both work with convertible models.

If you have a single muffler you would want the part # C11037, if you have dual mufflers you would want the part # C11188.

The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Roadway 2 part # TH912XTR. We asked our demo and install guys to name their favorite, most easy-to-use bike racks and this one showed up in nearly everyone's top three. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

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. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.

Curt requires the use of their stabilizer strap part # 18050 when using their hitch to carry a non-supported load like a bike rack. I attached a review video for you to check for the strap as well.
