No roof rack? No trailer hitch? No problem! The Thule Passage is a bike rack designed to carry up to two bikes on your vehicles trunk. The Passage is a unique rack designed with Thule's patented FitDial for easy adjustments, folding rack arms, and an anti-sway feature to prevent any unwanted movement of your bikes. The Passage is a great choice if you're looking for one of Thule's most affordable bike racks or if your vehicle doesn't have a roof rack or trailer hitch receiver.
The key feature of the Passage is Thule's FitDial hub adjustment system. The FitDial is Thule's marketing jargon for saying that the rack can be adjusted to fit a wide variety of trunk geometries with a simple twist knob. Effectively, the Passage is a big "clamp" that clamps on to the top and rear of your trunk. The FitDial knob adjusts how wide this "clamp" is which allows the Passage to fit large, small, flat, sloped, and even hatchback trunks. The FitDail has a physical dial on it that indicates the position. Thule provides recommended numerical positions for specific vehicles which allows you to quickly and easily setup the optimal position for your trunk or remember previous settings.
In addition to the FitDial, the Passage has other great features like the one-button connection for the arms that carry the bikes. This single point connection allows for instantaneous installation, removal, and maneuvering of the arms down and out of the way when the rack is not in use. This feature is great for parking or other situations when you need a small footprint on your car.
The Passage also features narrow cradle arms with anti-sway cages attached. The narrow rack arms allow a wider variety of frames to be mounted. For instance, the narrow arms are more conducive to children's bikes due to their shortened frame. The anti-sway cages are attachments that reduce the bike's movement from side-to-side. Whether its in stop and go traffic or though windy country roads, the anti-sway bars will prevent bike-to-bike and bike-to-vehicle contact.
