Thule ProRide 598 Silver 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.

I've now used this carrier for a couple of weeks so thought I would share my experiences. I'd be using the older model 591 for a couple of years so was keen to get my hands on the new 598. There are some very good upgrades with this model. For a start they've re-designed the head so it is now deeper for a more secure gripping around the bike frame. It also has a torque limiter so you can't over-tighten on your frame but i found this to be a very high tension and maybe tighter than i like with on my carbon frame. The very good improvement is that you now cannot lose the wheel tray and strap assembly. Also it is now much easier for you to swap from right to left hand side of roof racks and no tools are needed. I recommend this bike carrier as being very good and high quality.

Just got a twin pack of the new 598 prorides from roof rack store and they're awesome! Love the easy swap to the left hand side of my Golf! Another great piece of kit from Thule! Wouldn't use anything else!
