Whether a compact car, estate car, limo or SUV: The Thule OutWay Platform 2 bike rack is the ideal transport solution if your vehicle is missing a tow hitch or roof rails. Thule applied all of their experience for the development of this rear bicycle carrier, in order to achieve both a high level of model compatibility and the best possible ease of use. Flexibly positionable support points now allow installation on numerous vehicle models with notchback, fastback or hatchback. For an uncomplicated installation, the OutWay Platform 2 comes largely pre-assembled and only needs to be adapted to the rear of your car. Thanks to the raised platform, the rear lights and number plate remain clearly visible.

In daily use, the optimised operating concept pays off, with lockable and user-friendly torque closures for tightening the carrier as well as for affixing the support arms. The platform of the Thule OutWay rear carrier, designed for two bikes, can be folded together while on the vehicle in just a few simple steps. This means that it can not only be stowed away in a space-saving way, but can also stay on the car for a quick ride after a bike tour.
