New Thule Sprint 528 Fork Mount Bike Rack

We caught up with the guys from Thule Australia last week to chat about their latest fork mounted bike carrier - the Thule 'Sprint'. La Velocita takes a first look at this new roof mounted system.

If you have not heard of Thule you are missing out. The brand designs and manufactures some of the best bike mounting systems we've seen at La Velocita.  Their range of products is vast, with mounting solutions for just about any car or sport you can think of, and extends to quality laptop cases, backpacks and more.

The Thule Sprint is basically an upgraded version of the Thule 'OutRide'. The single biggest and ingenious difference with the Sprint is that Thule has added a built-in clutch that stops tightening the fork when the perfect amount of tension is applied to the bike’s fork-tips, making for the best possible result for those worried about the security and safety of their beloved ride.

We really like this idea and can't wait to start testing this new bike rack.  We'll be reporting in with our full review in a few weeks so be sure to watch this space.

The Sprint rack is available from Thule for $399. Check out the full range of Thule racks at
