Thule OutRide 561


The Thule Outride 561 is a sleek and secure way of transporting your bike on the roof of the car. The Thule Outride 561 is a fork mounted bike carrier, with adjustment to fit most bicycles. The Thule Outride 561 is able to transport bikes both with and without disc brakes. For extra peace of mind the Thule Outride 561 features a Double lock function that locks the bike both to the rail and to the load carrier. Adjustable wheel retaining straps for different tyre sizes at the rear.

This roof mount bike carrier mounts on roof bars (available separately) holding the bike upright. The rear wheel is secured to the base using a quick release strap, the front forks are clamped in a lockable quick release mechanism.

Most roof bars are wide enough to carry multiple bikes on the roof (you will need 1 x OutRide per bike). Always ensure the total weight is within the weight limits of the vehicle roof and roof rack system.



  • Automatically positions your bike when you secure it, thanks to the uniquely designed frame holder and wheel tray.
  • Quick and easy bike securing – the torque limiter dial controls the force going into the bike frame with a clear sign of correct mounting.
  • Pressure is spread via large, soft claw pads that adapt to your bike’s frame tubes – minimizing the risk of frame damage.
  • Safe mounting – your bike is prevented from falling thanks to the claw’s extended lower jaw.
  • Stable wheels – firmly fixed in smartly designed wheel holders with diagonal quick-release wheel straps.
  • Easy, tool-free interface for switching carrier from one side of your car to the other.
  • Maximum bike weight up to 20 kg.
  • T-track adapters (20x20mm) are included for mounting on Thule WingBar Edge, Thule WingBar, Thule SlideBar, and Thule AeroBar.
  • Fulfills the City Crash norm.

We offer a delivery service for the Thule OutRide 561 throughout the UK & Ireland to home and work addresses.

Delivery times are estimates based on years of experience; we do not offer a guaranteed timed delivery service. Our overnight service works well for the core more densely populated areas of the UK for Clothing and Equipment orders. However more remote less densely populated areas will not be covered by a next day service.

Delivery of canoes and kayaks is classed as “ugly freight” because mechanical handling and automatic parcel processing cannot be used; therefore a delivery time of 3-5 working days is more realistic. For remote location that delivery time will be dependent on the local courier’s ability to onward ship the goods. Not all areas of the UK are serviced by vehicles that can handle canoes and kayaks. Online orders can be tracked online using the courier’s website – tracking details will be provided. We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time scales.

The delivery price will be shown in the shopping basket.
