4 x Thule ProRide 598 silver bike carriers with locking roof bars

£379.95
RRP:
Code: TU598-P4

Thule have managed to improve on their best-selling 591 bike carrier with the new 598. It's very well designed and easy to use.

This package deal is only available for £399.95 if there are CRUZ bars for your vehicle (CRUZ has bars for most vehicles), but we're also offering packages with Atera and Whispbar bars, at higher prices but with even bigger savings.

All these packages provide everything you need. All you need to do is to click on "Add to basket and choose bars" (see bottom of page), then choose your car to see the roof bar options and the savings.


This superb package deal provides everything you need for a fixed price, including locking roof bars, a useful strap, and four Thule ProRide 598s. All you need to do is to click on "Add to basket and choose bars" to place your order; we'll then show you which roof bars are available. You'll pay more for aluminium than steel, and you'll pay more for Atera, Thule or Whispbar, but the savings on buying the components individually are huge. We're confident that you won't find such good value anywhere else. The Thule ProRide 598 is a very well thought out, well made bike rack. It's quick and easy to install, easy to use, and looks great.

What makes this a 5 star product:

  • The frame holder will stay in whatever position you place it in, so you can position it before lifting the bike onto the roof.
  • The shape of the aluminium bottom tray isn't just designed to look good. Assuming that you are parked on the flat, or facing slightly downhill, the bike will roll forwards into the jaws of the frame holder, i.e. less strain, better safety.
  • The plastic wheel holders have an edge to them so you're less likely to overlift, i.e. dump the bike beyond the bike carrier and onto the car roof.
  • Diagonal, quick-release wheel straps hold your bike securely.
  • When the bike frame is resting in the frame holder you'll support it with one hand and use the other to turn the tensioning knob which is probably at shoulder level. This has a one way ratchet, i.e. the frame holder will click shut one notch at a time, click, click, click. You'll hear a big click when the frame holder is tight enough. This is what Thule call their "torque limiter dial".
  • You release the frame holder with a push button; it releases entirely, making it easier to take the bike off.
  • It comes complete with 20mm x 20mm adapters for aluminium T-track section bars, suitable for all the aluminium bars we sell. If you have square (32 x 22mm) bars or other aerobar types, e.g. BMW, then you need adapters (shown below).

Other important info:

  • Fits T-track aluminium roof bars with a 20mm channel (adapters available for other bars).
  • Fits bikes with down tubes from 22mm to 80mm diameter (up to 80 x 100mm for oval frames).
  • Fits wheels up to 3" (adapters available for 3-5" tyres).
  • Maximum bike weight: 20kg
  • There's no official guidance from Thule but we have used this rack with bikes as large as 29ers.
  • Weight: 4.2kg
  • Each 598 has two One Key System locks - one locks the carrier to the roof bars, the other locks the bike to the carrier.
  • It's easy to change from left to right hand mounting to load you bike from either side of the car.
  • It's TÜV approved and meets the "City Crash Test" criteria.

Exchange scheme: Roof mounting bike carriers are part of our 90 day exchange scheme - see the tab for details. The bottom line is that if you aren't satisfied that the ProRide 598 fits the bill you can exchange it for an alternative roof mount, or a tow bar bike rack.

Delivery charges and arrangements:

We charge a contribution towards delivery costs, depending on what you order, where you live, and how quickly you want the goods.

For most UK addresses, the charge for our two to three day service is £5.50 (£9.50 for orders including a roof box) and our charge for Next Working Day deliveries is £8.50 (£12.50 for orders involving a roof box). AutoSock, shoe chains, RUD i-Sock, and small spare parts, are charged £3.95 (Royal Mail Tracked), £4.95 (Royal Mail Express Tracked) or £5.95 (express courier, usually Next Working Day).

There are different charges for any delivery including a sea crossing, and deliveries to Skye - we will contact you with a quote on receipt of order.

Orders for Next Working Day delivery need to be received by 4.00pm.

There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Next Working Day orders placed on a Friday will be delivered on the Monday, Next Working Day orders placed on a Saturday will be delivered on the Tuesday.

We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver on a day and at an address which suits you. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.

No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. All courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.

Payment options:

We take the following cards, and also PayPal. Please note that the entry on your card statement will be from "The Roof Box Company".

Useful information:

You can top-and-tail the bike carriers to take up less space on your roof bars.

Deciding which bike carriers to buy is not always easy, especially as you may not have had experience of using bike carriers before. We hope that our buying guides provide useful guidance about which bike carrier 'strategy' will be most appropriate for your circumstances, as well as highlighting the best features of particular models. We also have troubleshooting FAQs - for example, some customers struggle at first to fit four bikes onto a tow ball carrier, and wonder whether a different carrier would allow the bikes to be spaced wider apart. (It won't, but we have some good tips which make bike fitting much easier.)

Our bike carriers Exchange Scheme covers roof mounting and tow ball mounting bike carriers only. Rear door mounting / strap on carriers are not included, and nor are roof bars. It allows you to exchange within 90 days of invoice date. Most exchanges are for roof mounting upgrades, or are tow ball carriers with very basic tilting systems being exchanged for easy to use sliding / tilting carriers.

These are the rules of the bike carriers Exchange Scheme:

  • You are allowed one exchange only.
  • The original equipment must be in "as new" condition, subject only to fair wear and tear.
  • The replacement items must be different models from the originals.
  • The replacement items must not be part of a package deal or be from our Bargains section.
  • Roof bars are never part of the Exchange Scheme.

This is how the exchange scheme works:

  • We charge in full for the replacement items, including the appropriate carriage charge and a charge for any packaging needed for the return of the originals.
  • We pay the return carriage costs.
  • When the originals arrive back here we refund you for their invoice value, but you won't get back more than the invoice value of the replacements. In other words, if the replacements are cheaper than the originals we won't be giving you "extra cash back".

If you want to exchange bike carriers that were purchased as part of a package deal, the scheme works in exactly the same way. Please note that the roof bars in package deals will be invoiced at the full “Our Price” that was advertised at the time of order, with the bike carriers representing the difference between the package deal price and the roof bars, this difference being split equally between the number of bike carriers. You will see therefore that package deal bike carriers are often invoiced at a very substantial discount to the cost of buying these items on their own.

Please note: we can only collect items from mainland UK.
