Why We Like The Passage

You don’t need a truck or an empty SUV to transport your mountain bikes to the trailhead when you have the Thule Passage 3 Bike Strap Rack. Six adjustable nylon straps hold the rack in place, while vinyl-coated buckles at the end of the straps hold the carrier firmly to your car without scratching your paint. Thule’s patented FitDial gets the fit just right for maximum security.

Super reliable

We purchased this in 2016 and used it for 3 years on the 1500 mile roundtrip to and from my daughters' colleges. Absolutely no issues attaching it to the car ( Toyota Corolla) or with stability while driving. We did use bike locks so we did not have to worry to much when we stopped to eat, etc. A great purchase.

Hatchback Fail

The manual says this works for my hatchback, but the hooks never stay on the trunk properly and securely, despite tightening it down as much as possible. It's a waste of money. Don't waste your time.

Great Product

The 3 Bike rack works great for carrying 2 Fat Tire MTB's. Very secure mounting and strength for carrying the 2 heavy bikes.

My coworker gave me one of these for free

My coworker gave me one of these racks for free. I just wanted to say if you try to use it on a Honda Odyssey van it will not work due to the plastic spoiler thing the van has above the back window. DO NOT BUY IF YOU HAVE AN ODYSSEY.

Great track record and excellent perforance

Needed a trunk rack to carry three bikes, and discovered this rack has been out for years with excellent performance. Found it easy to install and load the bikes onto it. During multiple trips involving highway driving, the rack performed superbly with not one stitch of damage to the car. As an added bonus, discovered we did not need stabilizer bars for my wife's Fuji and my twin daughters' 20 inch bikes which remained level throughout each trip, although other bikes for women and girls may require using this device. This rack remains a truly excellent product that will reliably perform very well carrying up to three bikes.

fits great and holds bikes securely

bought to use on a nissan versa hatchback. could not be more perfect for this car. very stable and solid feeling. I never worried about the bikes. on a versa hatchback the only thing to watch out for is the added weight to the hatchback. the hatch will slam shut if you let it with an empty rack on it. the arms fold down when not hauling bikes. a good feature but watch your head when closing the hatch. i take the arms off when not hauling bikes. It should be obvious but the rear wipers don't have room to swing with this installed but not a drawback. overall a great product.

More than I bargained for

Although the bike shop had a limited selection I was more than satisfied with my purchase. The rack was easy to setup and remove as well as the ease of lowering the arms when not in use. The fasteners held the bikes securely on bumpy, unpaved Vermont roads. Paved roads are a snap. Only two seasons old, waiting on it's reliability over time.

Doesn't fit 3 hybrids/mountain bikes

This product *might* fit 3 road bikes but certainly doesn't fit 3 hybrids/mountain bikes. If you are using this for anything other than road bikes, think twice about buying it.

Does not hold three bikes! Tight fit for two

So glad I didn't wait till triathlon morning to try to get bikes on rack. No way possible to put three! My bike is small and has a hard time getting it on with my sons bike. Three bike was an impossibility!!!
