Thule ProRide 598 Black Bike Rack

The ProRide 598 is perhaps the most popular bike carrier in the world, the original ProRide 591 proved itself to be a brilliant design and the ProRide 598 has improved on that to become a truly outstanding bike carrier. 

Thule made a number of improvements including a new tool-free design which allows users to easily switch the carrier from passenger to driver's side in a matter of minutes.

The frame holder has also improved. The soft pads of the claw spread pressure evenly on the frame and the extended lower jaw gives greater stability while loading and driving. The torque limiter dial provides the exact correct pressure to be placed on the frame, providing excellent stability while minimising the chances of damaging your frame's finish. The new design of the frame holder and wheel trays allows the bike to be automatically positioned when you secure the bike, although this seems like a small detail it will save you time fiddling with trays to line everything up while securing your bike.

Available in silver or black, and both models have a class leading 20kg bike load limit.

There is an additional accessory for Fat Bikes, the Thule 5981 FatBike adaptor and for those with carbon framed bikes Thule recommend the patented BA 984 frame adaptor for added protection of your bike's finish.

The instructions with the ProRide are comprehensive and provide you with all the information you need to install the carrier yourself. Please have a look at the instruction manual pdf at the bottom of this page to preview the process. The ProRide also comes almost completely pre-assembled, with no tools required, making the task of fitting even easier again. 

It also complies with ‘City Crash’ standards in case of an accident, you can watch this Thule City Crash testing video to see Thule's products being tested.

We are often asked if the carrier is safe and can hold a bike in emergency braking situations or other extreme circumstances. The answer is a definite yes, if you're in doubt we encourage you to watch this Thule Testing video as a great example of the rigorous testing that Thule does to ensure top quality and safety in their products.

2 x One-Key™ lock cylinder locks the bicycle to carrier and ProRide to your roof rack. For your convenience, at Roof Rack Store we can key all accessories and racks alike when ordered at the same time.

The ProRide can be fitted onto almost all roof racks. However, some racks require specialised fitting kits. Please don't hesitate to ask us if you are unsure. Requires adapter to fit 30mm x 24mm T-tracks.

Dylan Luxa rated this item 5 out of 5      on Tuesday, 14 September 2021
I purchased the Thule ProRide to cart my Trek MTB around Victoria whilst I am on the road every day.They are mounted on some Rhino roof racks. Super easy to store and remove the bike on the mount. It was easy to install and keep my bikes secure on long commutes.

The rack is awesome, your service was phenomenal! Stoked I could get it in the all-black option 😊 you guys were the only ones that had them. The only problem is I have barely been able to use it since lockdown!!

Fitted really well and easy to install, easy to use and looks smart.
Matt Keaney rated this item 5 out of 5      on Monday, 09 August 2021
I used to have another brand that I had to take the front wheel off my bike to put it on the carrier. The Proride eliminates that problem. Will be buying another one for the second bike.
Josh Evans rated this item 5 out of 5      on Friday, 30 July 2021
The Thule 598 rack is sleek, lightweight and overall a fantastic performing product. Installation was simple and no additional items were required. I had it installed on the car in under half an hour. Its design makes it rather easy to put the bike on top of the car without risking any accidents that could damage the vehicle or bike. The locking mechanism provides ease of mind knowing the bike is secure where ever I park the car. I was very grateful to see that Thule provided this product in black as so many silver roof rack accessories stand out, this ones blends in with the car.
Markos Simons rated this item 4 out of 5      on Friday, 30 July 2021
Very happy with this rack. I have it mounted on the back of my Triton ute. The bike is easy to get on and off and is secure.
