Subaru WRX / WRX STI Normal Roof 1993-2001, Criterium Roof Bike Rack by Thule®. The advanced "frame hold" design of the Criterium rack features a C-Clamp that gently grips and holds the frame for secure and stable transport without risk of damage to the frame. The clamp accommodates frames up to 3 3/8" diameter and the aluminum tray supports tires up to 2.6" wide. The Criterium rack fits Thule square bars, round bars and AeroBlade load bars.
Whenever you're transporting your bike, you want to make sure it's stable and safely secured, but at the same time do no damage. The advanced "frame hold" design of the Criterium rack holds the bike in a stable and secure upright position using a C-Clamp. The clamp contains an integrated dial that applies the precise amount of gripping pressure when you turn the knob, so your bike is steady and your frame is unscathed.
A stylish, corrosion resistant aluminum tray is the foundation of the Criterium carrier. It attaches to Thule square bars, round bars, and Thule AeroBlade bars using the Xadapt 8 (sold separately). The C-Clamp fits bike frames up to 3 3/8" diameter and the tray accommodates tires up to 2.6" wide. Ratcheting wheel straps quickly secure the wheels to the tray and two One-Key lock cylinders (sold separately) can lock the bike to the carrier and the carrier to the rack.
A Thule roof carrier protects your bike from road dirt better than hitch or trunk racks. And the stable and secure roof rack attachment also gives you the versatility to add other accessories to the base rack. The Thule Criterium Roof Bike Rack comes with everything required for installation, including detailed instructions. The limited lifetime warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product, and warrants the product against manufacturer's defects in materials or workmanship.

I was amazed at the ease of installation of this product. I took my time and read the directions carefully. When I tested it out with my bike, it seemed secure. It comes with a bike stabilizer and a strap for extra securing of the bike. The only thing, I wish it had was a strap to keep the front wheel of the bike from moving. But I secured it with a bungee cord that I provided. Good value for the money.
The 918 was delivered promptly, and it is a rugged piece of equipment, just as the original 916 tray carrier is. This is the best bike rack system I have ever had. The only downside is the weight, but that is what makes these devices durable.
