Is the Thule Criterium Bike Rack Compatible with the Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Aero Crossbars


Will this rack fit with the thule criterium 598 roof bike carrier? My vehicle is a 2012 vw golf


Expert Reply:

The Thule Criterium Bike Carrier, # TH598, will work with the Rhino-Rack RS 2500 roof rack aero crossbars, but you will need the Thule Ride-On Adapter, part # TH532. The Criterium was designed to fit Thule square crossbars or Yakima round crossbars, so an adapter is needed for elliptical style crossbars.

For a bike rack that is directly compatible with the Rhino-Rack roof rack, you may want to check out the Thule UpRide Wheel-Mount Bike Rack, # TH599000.

If you already have the Criterium bike rack and would like a roof rack for your 2012 Volkswagen Golf that is directly compatible with the bike rack, I would recommend the Thule SquareBar Roof Rack which consists of the following parts.

53 Inch Square Crossbars # TH712400
Evo Clamp Feet # TH710501
Traverse Fit Kit # TH145009
