Thule Epos is a new, fully foldable and tiltable towbar bike carrier with an innovative telescopic bike attachment system designed to transport bikes of any type or size – whether it is mountain bikes, gravel bikes or e-bikes.
Innovative patented telescopic bike arms – a new way to attach your bikes
The core innovation with the Thule Epos bike carrier is the flexibility and ease of use created by the unique individual, and telescopic bike arms equipped with pivoting head and reinforced straps, that offer numerous attachment options to securely hold any type of bike. Thule Epos lets you attach your bike anywhere on the frame or the rear wheel for a no-frame contact. This durable and high-capacity carrier, that carries bikes with a weight up to 30 kg each, makes transportation of bikes easier than ever. Thule Epos carries up to three bikes and fits all types of frames and geometries, including e-bikes, mountain bikes, gravel bikes as well as bikes with fenders and racks.
Fast, easy, and safe bike loading and unloading – designed to give cyclists more time riding
The mounting requires minimum effort, securing the carrier to the car is a breeze. Bikes are easy to load and unload independently, without you needing to think about in which order the unloading will take place. Once the bikes are loaded, the trunk will still be accessible thanks to the smart tilting mechanism. Handling your bikes is easier and faster than ever before, so you can spend more time enjoying those bike rides with friends and family.
“We are thrilled to introduce this revolutionary, and our most patent protected, bike carrier that will make it easier than ever to transport any type of bike. The installation process requires minimal effort and loading and unloading bikes is incredibly simple – no more excuses not to go riding next weekend!” Baptiste Chaussignand, Director Product Management Bike category at Thule.
Convenient in all situations
With no bikes attached, the bike arms stow flat, which makes the trunk accessible even without tilting the bike carrier. Thule Epos is also fully foldable for easy transportation and storage when not being used.
