The Thule Xadapt 9 XT - T-Slot Adapter Kit is used to attach the 517 Peloton and Thule 518 Echelon bike carriers to Thule AeroBlade, Thule Rapid Aero the Xsporter truck rack and Pro Series racks. This kit included fasteners and bracket necessary to attach the front AND rear of the bike carrier to the T-Slots.
This kit differs from the Xadapt9 for Front T-Slot only in that the rear mounting hardware attaches around the load bar with bolts, an under bar plate and wing nuts. This method limits positioning of the bike carrier to sections of the not occupied by the foot, wear as the Xadapt9 XT allows positioning of the bike carrier anywhere along the length of the load bar. Use the Thule Fit Guide to confirm fit.
