Thule VeloCompact fitted to car bike rack

The VeloCompact is Thule's most compact and light weight platform bike carrier with the 2 bike-925 coming in at just 14kg. Incorporating extendable wheel bases and lamp holders it can be made small enough to fit into most car boots.

VeloCompact clamping mechanism

The one-hand-coupling requires a very low closing force while giving the highest stability and safety possible. Attachment to the tow ball takes seconds and is secured from theft with a key lock.

Thule VeloCompact  tilt mechanism

A simple foot pedal operation allows the bike carrier to tilt away from the car giving access to the rear of the vehicle, even with bikes loaded. Pump buckles on the wheel straps securely restrain front and rear wheel, with a long strap to allow for various tyre widths.

What Steve thinks......

The VeloCompact 925 is a great option for carrying 2 bikes on a platform style carrier. If you want to carry electric bikes then the EuroPower 916 will give you a higher individual bike and total load rating. The EuroClassic G6 928 can be adapted to take an additional bike when required and has a higher total load rating of 50 kg. However, if you want to carry 2 bikes that are not overly heavy then the VeloCompact 925 gives you loads of features with a significant saving in dollars over these two options. Also I like the way the VeloCompact folds up to make it as its name suggest a very compact option for what is traditionally a bulky product.
