Thule 516 Prologue Questions


Brian Rowaan asked on 10/21/2011:

How does this rack differ from the peleton?

Hi Brian,

The Prologue uses a 9mm skewer (similar to the one already holding your wheel on) instead of a "clamp" style quick release lever found on the Peloton. The Peloton's clamp style fork allows for quicker and easier installation and removal of the bike from the roof. The other primary differences are primarily aesthetic, as the Peloton also offers a lower profile and sleeker design.

thank you
