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 check the technical information tab to check which crossbars this carrier will fit. If you need further assistance, please don't hesitate to ask us.

If you'd like to know more about the ProRide please contact us anytime to discuss, or you can read this independent review of the Thule 598.

Note - This model will NOT accommodate ALL bicycle frame types, for more advice please message us anytime, or call (02) 91596777 during office hours to speak with one of our specialists.

Zac rated this item 5 out of 5      on Monday, 30 October 2017
Love it. Great service and fantastic carrier from Thule. Much better than the old version I crashed into the carport! Zac

I dont write reviews but feel compelled to in this instant. Recently I needed bike racks for the weekend and of course it was Thursday morning before I realised my wife and I both thought the other was doing it. I called the Roof Rack Store first thing as they advertised the best price, they gave me great advice and the racks arrived the same day in Sydney! I could not believe it. Thanks Roof Rack Store, you have set the new standard in online retail and saved my marriage!
Phil Williams rated this item 5 out of 5      on Friday, 07 October 2016
Regretfully I sold my old car with my 591 racks on as the buyer wanted the racks included and I wanted to sell. Now I\'m glad I did! I got the price I wanted and got these 598s in black which looks much better on my new dark blue car. The 591 were the best and these are even better. Being tooless they are super fast to mount, move and put the bikes on. Thanks to the Roof Rack store (Leigh) for the great customer service and best price in the country!!
