The Platform 2 is a unique trunk-mount bike rack from the Thule OutWay family that offers platform bike mounting to get your bikes up and out of harm's way and keeps the rear lights and number plate of your vehicle visible. With care, this rack could even be used in conjunction with a trailer for those truly epic adventures.

The OutWay Platform 2 is quick and easy to mount to your vehicle and once installed, holds on tight to provide a secure and stable way to carry your bikes but is then easily removed and packed down for convenient storage. The platform mounting system supports your bike by the tyres and secure straps with rubber covers protect your valuable rims.  Each bike is provided with a rubber-lined support arm to hold the bike upright and prevent sway.

The Thule OutWay won't fit every car. Be sure to check out the Thule Buyers Guide in the 'Links & More Info' tab above to see if your car is suitable.
