Thule VeloSpace XT 3 bike tow bar carrier no. 939

RRP: £575.00
Code: TU939

Packed full of useful features that allow you to carry all types of bikes. It's developed for large and heavy bikes, such as eBikes, fatbikes and downhill MTBs. It works just as well with road bikes and children's bikes.

  • Extra-long wheel trays take larger bikes up to a 1300mm wheelbase
  • Extra long wheel straps (available separately) will even take fatbikes up to 4.7"

Developed especially for large and heavy bikes such as e-bikes, fatbikes and downhill MTBs. Its full length wheel trays makes it equally suitable for smaller bikes too. It's got a greater distance than usual between each bike making loading easier, especially if you've got electric bikes or chunky downhill forks.

It's a decent rack and has a foot operated tilt function accessed from the front of the bike carrier, near the lights - this is a major plus point. The tilt mechanism allows you to open the tailgate without removing the bikes, which will always be useful. The lockable bike holding arms can easily be repositioned, when unlocked, so you won't have the common problem of finding that one holding arm is in the wrong place for the last bike, and all bikes have to be taken off and the holding arm repositioned before loading the bikes again. The AcuTight tightening knobs have a built-in torque limiter so will click when the right tension is reached.

The VeloSpace 939 is supplied largely pre-assembled, and is suitable for all types of tow ball. When you place the rack on the tow ball it stabilizes itself, allowing you to position it correctly before pushing down the handle.

There's a range of useful accessories available to ensure you get the most out of your bike rack - shown below. These include an optional loading ramp to make loading and unloading much easier. A transportation wheel accessory can be attached to the rack making it easier to transport to and from the car.

You can even add an easily accessible cargo box (BackSpace XT cargo box no. 938300) to convert this bike carrier into an all-round load carrier, a good option if your roof is already taken up with other gear.

Other specifications:

  • Max load capacity: 60kg (tow bar nose weight limit permitting)
  • Weight: 20.6kg
  • Fits frames 22 to 80mm
  • Fits tyres up to 3.5" - extra long wheel straps (available as an accessory) will even take fatbikes up to 4.7"
  • Maximum wheelbase: 1300mm
  • The upright can be folded for easier storage
  • The 939 comes with a 13 pin plug for 13 pin continental type electric sockets (you will need a separate adapter if you have a 7 pin socket - listed below)
  • Use adapter 939400 if you have a rear mounted spare wheel; this will take up one bike space, i.e. you can carry 3 bikes with adapters 938100 and 939400

If you buy either the 4th bike adapter 938100 and/or the BackSpace XT cargo box 938300 we will give you a 2.5% discount on all these products. It may not sound a lot, but it adds up to a useful saving! Note that the savings are worked out in the Shopping Basket.

Thule One Key System

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".

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

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".

PayPal accepted
