Thule OutRide 561

RRP: 137.00

Thule's 561 OutRide has a quick fit system for all types of front forks, including carbon forks with steel or aluminum dropouts, and forks with disc brakes. There's an integrated adapter for 20mm axles.

We are giving away a free wheel bag with every carrier. Takes up to 29" wheels. Available while stocks last!

The Thule OutRide has a slim aluminium design. The snap-on fastener is easily adjustable for all types of front forks, including forks with disk brakes. Quick-strap at the rear, for all types of wheel.

It fits 9mm Quick-Release forks and also includes an integrated adapter for 20mm thru axles (fits all 20mm thru axles except Rock Shox 20mm Maxel axle). Adapters are available separately for many other thru axles - listed below. Please note, when using the OutRide 561 with a thru axle you can't lock your bike to the carrier. You can still lock the carrier to the roof bars. If you are going to leave your bike on the car for any length of time we recommend that you add a cable lock to your order. The Thule 538 cable lock is also listed below.

Holds bikes up to a maximum weight of 17kg.

This carrier is part of our Multi Buy discount scheme, where there are discounts if you buy more than one roof mounting bike carrier at the same time; you can mix budget and premium carriers and always get the cheapest price on each. Change the quantities in your shopping basket (and press "Recalculate") to see what happens! This carrier is priced as low as £107.95.

  • Include 1 = £114.95 each
  • Include 2 or more = £112.95 each

Made in Poland.

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 OutRide 561 fits the bill you can exchange it for an alternative roof mount, or a tow bar bike rack.

Our free wheel bag offer

We are giving away free 28" or 29" wheel bag(s) with forkmount carrier orders, while stocks last.

The downside of forkmount carriers is that you have to find a way of carrying what might be a muddy / wet / oily front wheel - a wheel bag is the easiest solution.

We have single and double wheel bags to give away. Order 1 bike carrier and we will send a single, order 2 and we will send a double, order 3 and we will send a double and a single, order 4 and we will send two doubles.

If you have a preference about 28" or 29", please make a note in the 'Order comments' box in the Checkout. If we can meet your request, we will, but stock is limited and we can only send what we have!

These lined and padded wheel bags hold all wheels up to 28" or 29", are made from a highly tear-proof polyester, and include very useful internal pockets, one Velcro and two zipped.

  • Diameter: up to 760 mm
  • Extra protection at the axle points
  • High quality zip
  • Includes two carrying handles and a shoulder strap for easy carrying

These are made by B&W International, based in Germany, who we think make the best quality and best designed range of bike carrying bags and boxes on the market.

We offer our existing customers a full "Next Day if possible" spares service, and will cannibalise new stock as required to find you the parts you need.

To find the spare parts you need, please see the diagram below, identify the product codes, then choose them from the list below. If you need more than 1 of any item, change the quantities in the Shopping Basket.

Delivery FAQs

When will my order arrive?
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Express Delivery orders placed on a Friday (before 1pm) should be delivered on the Monday or Tuesday, Express Delivery orders placed on a Saturday or Sunday should be delivered on the Tuesday or Wednesday. The arrangements for Very Heavy Items are different and are shown above.

What about Next Working Day delivery?
We have offered a reliable Next Working Day service for well over 20 years but, due to the pressure on the couriers caused by the coronavirus crisis and the huge increase in online shopping, we can no longer be confident about the delivery date, which is why we now call the service ‘Express delivery’. Most Express delivery orders will arrive on the next or second working day, but some will arrive on the second or third working day, or be split between these days. So-called “split deliveries” happen when the couriers do not have enough trailer space for everything that should be moved around the UK, so they will load what they can and leave the rest for the next trailer.

Is my delivery day guaranteed?
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. As well as split deliveries, 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.

Do I need to be at home?
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver to an address which suits you – this does not need to be your home address. 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.

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