The Sprint roof bike rack is jam-packed with outstanding features, including a superb low-profile, aerodynamic design, and ease of use. It combines convenience and patented assurance technologies for maximum protection of your bike. With the Thule Sprint, you don't have to worry about overtightening the bicycle to the bike carrier since it has an integrated automatic torque adjustment and feedback system. When the bike is fastened to the carrier, the knob of the fork block clicks once you reach the optimal holding force at the dropout, indicating that your bike is properly secured to the rack. The bike rack patented SonicHead front assembly minimizes wind drag, operates easily and simply looks good.
The bike carrier is compatible with all major roof rack types and can be easily installed without any tools. Thanks to the universal Speed-Link system, the roof bike rack is also compatible with almost all bike sizes and types. Its telescoping wheel tray moves in and out to fit up to 48 inch wheelbases or allow for better car hatch clearance. Any traveling vibrations and road shock are fully absorbed by the Road Dampening Technology blue elastomers, instead of the bike.
