Thule VeloCompact 3 13-pin

The THULE VeloCompact 3 13-Pin is Thule's most compact and lightweight tow bar mounted bike rack for carrying 3 bikes or 4 bikes with an additional adapter. Attaching the Velocompact to the tow bar is very easy, simply place the carrier onto the tow bar and close the tightening handle and plug in the 13-pin electric plug into your car towbar socket.

A range of bike sizes will fit on the carrier thanks to the adjustable width wheel trays.

Bikes are securely held in place using detachable arms with rubber coated clamps to protect the bike frame. The wheels sit in adjustable wheel trays and strapped in place using ratchet wheel straps. The detachable arms allow you to position the bike in place and then attach the arm to the carrier and bike.

The Thule VeloCompact 3 locks to the car towbar and the bikes are locked in place onto the carrier for theft security.

4th Bike Adapter

As standard the Thule VeloCompact 3 927 can carry 3 bikes, this can be increased to 4 bikes with the 9261 4th bike adapter.

Note: 15kg is the maximum bike weight for use with the 926100 4th bike adapter.

Add a 9261 4th bike adapter for carrying 4 bikes

Rear Mounted Spare Wheel?
