  • Thule VeloCompact 927 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from VeloCompact 927 and extension A little more expensive than other models but the rack locks to the towball and each individual bike can be locked to the rack. Solid construction, the bikes don't move at all on this rack. Its light enough to be fitted by one person aswell. Glad I bought this now and not the other one I was considering.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid product Fairly straight forward to assemble, some written instruction would be useful instead of just the pictures, manageable weight to carry when not in use

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from As good as they get Nicely made rack, well designed and well finished. Lighting board not so well made - bulbs flickering and repeated problems with the bulbs. Just goes width-ways in the boot of my Skoda Octavia. Still to give it a real try-out, so any other gripes may be simply me getting used to it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Great product, brought this on recommendation from a friend and it is awesome. Very well made, very sturdy and holds the bikes very securely. Excellent tilting mechanism allowing access to the boot even with bikes loaded. The only downside was that we had to buy the 13 to 7 pin adaptor which we thought should be included as this is not a cheap product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product What an awesome product. I don’t normally write reviews but I am just so impressed with this that I thought I should. I was looking for a tow bar rack to carry my Giant e+2 full suspension MTB and did considerable research on line before making a decision. I wanted to be able to carry another ebike also in the future when required and nearly every rack that I looked at would only carry one ebike due to the weight. This will adequately carry two ebikes. It is beautifully made and very purposeful. It locks on and the bikes also lock on so there is no requierment to buy any extras once you have purchased. Full marks from me!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product from Thule I'm a huge fan of Thule products. The quality is always top notch. The Velo Compact doesn't dissapoint and manages my high expectations for the brand. The kit is a masterpiece and crafted to the highest standard. I think this may be my last Thule purchase as it looks such quality I won't have to buy another bike rack ever again. I've also bought an adapter to enable it to hold 4 bikes, so should be great for our family. Overall, I'm pleased I spent a little extra to get the best possible rack. Hopefully the lock is strong enough to prevent someone pinching it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from robust and effective does what it says on the tin, very robust and supports 3 bikes it is alittle overpriced given that most people will get this if they will eventually need 4 bikes and then have to pay for the 4th bike adapter. manual is lacking some description but it can be worked out easily enough. we had to pay for an additional 13 to 7 pin adapter which would seem to be a norm on the vehicles i've seen (audi/bmw etc)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Once attached, rock solid only minor gripes keep it from 5*. Very good carrier. A couple of minor niggles keeps it off a 5* which for me are: 1. The instruction booklet is woeful - I am poor at DIY and although it comes mostly assembled there are a couple of things to do (with supplied allen key). Even so the instruction book of cartoons could be so much better - for instance to assemble the frame arms that hold the bikes you need to make sure the 'knobs' are unlocked, then undo them to give you enough leeway to be able to separate the connectors for assembly onto the correct bracket. Put into position, assemble and then tighten. Nothing at all in the instructions saying that! Okay being able to remove them is good given you won't always be carrying 3 bikes but you gotta know how to put them on and off! 2. For me, the power cable connector could be a little longer and have better positional straps so that you can adjust subject to your cars need. 3. Make sure the collapsable back bar is tightly secured - if not you risk it moving and possibly damaging your car and / or bike. 4. While it is good to have the locking function with same key I to am not convinced that they are that sturdy (see earlier review!). Still a deterrent of sorts. 5. It is a close and fiddly job to actually get 3 bikes on the rack real trial and error. with my bikes and I am sure more problematic for others! Once correctly attached - beware! It is an excellent product, very secure with very little movement noticed. Indeed last weekend driving in Wales during Storm Brian had no impact on the rack - only on some drivers who must never have driven when windy! So when parking don't forget it's on!
