Ready to take your e-bike on a grand adventure? Since all 3 classes of electric bikes are approved for use on National trails, this summer is the perfect time to start exploring outside of your normal route. When you want to load your ebikes up and go, you’re going to want a bike rack that will carry your ebike — damage-free — to your next destination.

Real Reviews from Real Riders
If you need a bit more convincing that the Thule T2 Pro XTR is the absolutely perfect way to transport your ebikes, take a look at these high-praise reviews. The Thule T2 Pro rack has over 800 reviews on Amazon, earning 5-star accolades from an impressive 83% of reviewers. So don’t take our word for it… here are just a few of the things real people have to say about the Thule T2 rack.
“Great quality. Strong enough to accommodate my two 58lb e-bikes.”
“Rack is awesome. It’s very easy to install on the car and very easy to load bikes onto. I put my 29’er mountain bike on it and it fits fine.”
“I researched EBike racks for a couple months and I am so glad I purchased the Thule T2 Pro.”
“After struggling with several of the “hanging” style hitch-mount bike racks which really don’t fit our cruiser bikes very well at all, we finally invested in the flatbed-style T2 Pro XT — and what a difference it makes! This rack is absolutely rock-solid when attached to the hitch and the bikes mount easily and quickly.”
“The assembly was fairly easy, and following the instructions, I had been driving around with the rack (without bikes) for about 200 miles already before the first use fully loaded. Last night we set it up with bikes, and it was really easy to secure a bike on it. There are multiple YouTube videos out there if you need assistance with assembly and setup. The rack is super well made. Very durable material, and very easy to set up and use while allowing for trunk access when loaded. That was the selling point for me. It folds up for easy transportation when not in use, and it folds down for trunk access when loaded with bikes.”
“This Thule hitch is easy to mount in my 2″ hitch, and there it securely remains whether one or two bicycles are mounted. Whether at 25 mph or at 65 mph. Whether on smooth paved roads or on bumpy backcountry roads. This is by far easier than a roof-mount system. It also does not tax your fuel mileage. Five stars. Unquestionably.”
