Thule Velo Compact 3bk Bike Rack

This product is unavailable

The ALL NEW Thule VeloCompact 927 represents the next generation of tow ball mounted bike carriers. Belying its compact size the VeloCompact 927 carries three bikes or four bikes with 9261 adapter.  A particular innovative feature is a self-stabilizing tow ball coupling that enables a higher load capacity to be carried and at the same time makes it even easier than ever before to mount on to the tow ball. To make life even easier, once the carrier is placed onto the tow ball it will stay firmly in position, without any need to balance it, allowing adjustment to be made before finally securing with the tightening lever.

Important - If fitting to a Flange style tow ball (i.e. where two bolts are visible either side of the tow ball) An Alko extended ball is required 

As standard, the VeloCompact carries up to three bikes with a fourth bike possible with the optional 9261 adapter.

Another extremely useful feature is that the width of the wheel holders can be extended to enable bikes with wider wheel bases to be carried, yet can be just as easily retracted for storage.

An easy foot activated tilt lever allows instant counter balanced access to the car's boot or tailgate even with the bikes in place on the carrier! 

A generous total loading capacity is sufficient for carrying most types of bikes including electric bikes. So whether your bike is a lightweight carbon frame road bike, a downhill mountain bike or a pedelec, the VeloCompact will be ideal. 

Matching locks are provided for each bike as well as a matching lock to lock the carrier to the tow ball.

 

Its compact size is ideal for placing into the car boot and if required can be folded flat with the bike holders and light units easily moved inwards to reduce the overall width.  Additional accessory options include the 9261 fourth bike adapter and a 9152 loading ramp to enable the bikes to be effortlessly rolled into place.
