Convenient, secure, and half the weight of most hitch racks.

Take the fuss out of transporting your bikes by attaching the hitch-mounted Thule Helium Aero Bike Rack. The Hold Fast Cradles and no-sway cages securely hold two bikes in place, prevent the bikes from contacting each other, and utilize RDT technology to absorb the shock of rough roads. Integrated locks send would-be thieves packing, and the tool-free design makes installation and removal a breeze.

  • Durable aluminum construction makes the Helium Aero half the weight of most hitch racks
  • Patented Hold Fast Cradles with RDT securely hold two bikes in place while absorbing the shock of the road
  • No-sway cages prevent bikes from contacting each other and further absorb road shock
  • Integrated locking cable and Auto-attach lock knob lock the carrier to your vehicle and bikes to the carrier
  • Auto-Attach allows you to quickly install or remove the rack without any tools
  • Hitch Switch allows the arms to be folded down when not in use and tilts the carrier away from the vehicle for rear access
  • Snug-Tite Stinger eliminates space in the hitch receiver to greatly reduce carrier movement

  • Lightweight, aluminum construction
  • Hold Fast cradles
  • Integrated locks
  • Tool-free installation and removal
  • Fold-down arms

Your hitch rack got simpler and lighter!

    Very easy to use. The fact that this product is way lighter than most others, makes it ideal for taking it on and off regularly. A most buy if you're not planning on leaving the rack on you car for long periods of time.

    Adequate

    The best thing about this rack is the light weight. This is a replacement rack from one destroyed when my car was hit. The old Thule rack had a stabilizer bar that help keep bikes apart and the bike steady as it rolled down the road. The new rack doesn`t have this and the pieces that attach to the arms come off and the bike swings wildly. I`ve come up with my own stabilizer straps using toe straps. In hind sight I would have bought the less expensive steel rack.

    Light & Easy to Use

    Picked up this rack for my mom's new Subaru Outback. The ability for my mother to remove and install the rack by herself was a must. Not only is the rack incredibly light weight, but the tool-free installation and removal is slick and secure. One added feature is the integrated bike lock, very well thought out and executed. Overall I would highly recommend this rack to anyone looking for a lighter-weight rack and speed/ease of removal and installation.

    compact and cool

      Needed small and light, this fit the bill. this rack is on a sports car (corvette). Hitch and bike lock....very nice feature, bike very stable, but takes a little time to attach bike about 3 minutes...key points light stable and secure....wish it came in black.

      Light, fast

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Other racks I looked at are ridiculously overbuilt, heavy, a pain to load. This one is super light and you put it on/take it off in 15 seconds. Also folds up fairly well for storage.
      If your car doesn't have a hitch, get one installed and get this, worth it.

      Great rack!

      This rack is super duper lightweight. Easy to install. There are some weird locking issues that you have to work through but it's not a big deal. For example: When taking the rack on and off..you aren't suppose to unlock it all the way in order to remove it. Small issue. Otherwise I love this rack...it really is a featherweight.
