The Thule 9009XT Archway 2 is a trunk and hatch bike rack that hangs bikes by their top tube. The 9009XT Archway 2 features improved bike cradles and anti-sway cages for better protection of your bike compared to previous generations of the rack. The new Hold Fast RDT (Road Dampening Technology) cradles allows for the best possible protection of your bikes during travel.
The 9009XT Archway 2 features a steel cable lock at the end of the rack to lock the outside bike frame in place. An included passive security strap wraps around the rack and gets anchored inside of the vehicle's trunk to lock the rack to the vehicle. Six vinyl-coated steel hooks on pull-tight nylon webbed straps attach the rack on to your vehicle.
