Thule 518 Echelon Reviews

 
Reviewed by a RackAttack Customer

Jayrated this item 5 out of 5 on 3/19/2011:

They work very well. They are easy to install, even with the adapt9 kit on Aero bars. They hold the bike in secure, and with the rear wheel strap its not moving at all! I would also advise you get lock cores, to protect your investment.

Top notch fork mount. These are the most stable solution for a roof rack. Mounts nicely to the Aero bars with the adapter. Very secure. Looks good too.
