Thule VeloCompact fitted to car bike rack

The VeloCompact is Thule's most compact and light weight platform bike carrier with the 3bike-927 coming in under 19kg. Incorporating extendable wheel bases and lamp holders to help it reduce in size for storage.

VeloCompact towball clamp

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.

VeloCompact tilted with bikes

Tilts away from the car to give clear access to the boot.

VeloCompact Extension

Add BA9261 to increase capacity to four bikes.

What Steve thinks......

The VeloCompact 927 is a great option for carrying 3 or 4 bikes on a platform style carrier. The EuroClassic G6 929 gives you slightly more space across the bikes wheel base, which could be useful for staggering the position of bikes with wide handle bars, otherwise the VeloCompact ticks pretty much all the boxes at a great price. I believe this is currently the best option available for a 4 bike platform or 3 bike that leaves open the option of extending in the future.
