Is There an Adapter for the Thule 597 Ski Carrier to Fit on Aero Bars


I have an older Thule 597 ski carrier that fit square cross bars in the past. I now have aerobars and was wondering if your product #7533998 would work for it and if it doesnt do you have any other options? Thanks

I spoke with Thule about this, and unfortunately the Mounting Kit # 7533998 will not work for your 597 ski carrier. In fact, there is not an adapter available for those carriers to work with aero bars.

Your best bet is to upgrade your ski carrier to a new one. One that is similar in design to the one you currently have is the Rhino-Rack Ski and Snowboard Carrier, part # RR574. It holds 4 skis and fits aero bars.

I've linked to a video review of this carrier for your consideration.
