Thule VeloSpace 918


The Thule VeloSpace 918 is a tow bar mounted cycle carrier with a high load capacity allowing it to transport a wide range of bikes.

A total load capacity of 60kg and a maximum of 30kg per bike enables the VeloSpace 918 to transport E-bike (electric assisted bikes) which tend to be heavier than standard bikes. The wide wheel trays also allow for the transportation of "Fat Bike" with wide tires making the Velospace 918 Thule's most versatile cycle carrier.

The Thule Loading Ramp XT - 9172 (sold separately) can be used to assist with loading heavier bikes on to the carrier, allowing you to simply roll your bikes on to the carrier. This loading ramp can be fitted by simply clipping it in to place each time you load and unload your bikes.

The VeloSpace 918 features an integrated light board and number plate holder which uses a 7-pin power plug, though an adapter for vehicles with 13-pin sockets can be purchased for a simple conversion.

Bikes are secured in place using the adjustable frame holders whilst the wheels are kept firmly in place with the adjustable pump buckle straps.

When the cycle carrier is fitted to your vehicles tow bar it is still possible to access the boot thanks to Thule's smart pedal system that angles the carrier back to allow clearance for the rear door to open. This feature can even be used when bikes are loaded to the carrier for ultimate convenience.

This cycle carrier comes complete with a lock to secure it to the tow bar and locks to secure your bikes to the carrier.



  • High load capacity enabling transport of lighter e-bikes and heavy mountain bikes
  • Extra width between wheel holders (25 cm) for the easiest mounting of sturdy bikes
  • Extra-long wheel trays enabling transport of large bikes (up to 1300 mm wheelbase).
  • Adjustable pump buckles with extra-long wheel straps for easy fastening of wheels (up to 4.7" wheels) enabling transport of fat bikes
  • Easy mounting of bikes through detachable bike arms with lockable knobs
  • Easy mounting and adjustment of the bike rack before closing the tightening handle, thanks to the towbar coupling’s initial stability
  • Easy trunk access even with bikes mounted, thanks to smart foot pedal tilt
  • Locks the bike to the bike rack and the bike rack to the roof racks (locks included)
  • Pre-assembled, no tools required

We offer a delivery service for the Thule VeloSpace 918 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.
