The Thule Sprint is one of the premier fork mount style bike carriers. If you aren't familiar with Thule, they are the bike rack manufacturers and all of their products exude quality - this bike rack is no exception. The Thule Sprint has all of the top-of-the-line features like tool free installation, Road Dampening Technology (RDT), telescoping wheel tray, and universal fit.
The Thule Sprint is a fork style roof rack. For those unfamiliar, the fork style racks require you to remove your front wheel and lock your front fork into the rack. In exchange for the hassle of removing your front tire, you gain superior stability and strength. The Sprint is designed to fit most disk brake and suspension combinations with standard 9mm axels. Additionally, the Sprint will fit tires up to 2.6" wide and high profile rims.
With your front fork locked down, you strap down your rear tire with the telescoping rear wheel tray. This tray slides along a track that allows you to fit a wide variety of sized bikes. The Thule Sprint can carry bikes that have wheelbases up to 48" long. Built into the rack is Thule's signature Road Dampening Technology (RDT). The RDT are specially designed elastomers that are imbedded into the rack that are designed to help absorb road shock and vibration. This makes your ride quieter and reduces fatigue on your bike!
Another great feature about the Thule Sprint is Thule's AcuTight technology. The AcuTight technology is integrated into the clamping knobs to ensure you reach optimal hold. The knobs will click to let you know you've strapped down your bike tight enough to have a secure ride but not too tight to damage your bike.
Like most of Thule's racks, this Sprint can be completely installed without tools! Additionally, the Sprint is designed to fit a wide variety of roof rack crossbars including round, square, oval, and most aero styles. It will fit any Thule or Yakima crossbars, and will fit most other factory roof racks. Thule takes pride in manufacturing products that fit universally across most vehicles.
