Bikes with carbon frames and forks are best used with frameless contact racks, like the T2 line of hitch bike racks, or the UpRide roof bike rack. Fork mounted bike racks can exert too much lateral force, causing splintering of carbon forks, and bike racks that grip the main frame of the bike can cause abrasion to the carbon, or crush the fragile material.
Thule also sells a carbon frame protector, which can protect the bike from clamp systems, like the EasyFold XT or ProRide racks.
Thule always recommends consulting the bike manufacturer or dealer for recommendations for your specific model.
Thule assumes no liability for any damage to carbon frames or forks incurred during mounting and/or use of the carrier.
