Why We Like The Helium Pro Bike Rack

Unbelievably lightweight and a breeze to use, the Thule Helium Pro Bike Rack features a strong, yet featherweight aluminum construction and quick-release Hitch Switch to make sure installation and loading and unloading bikes aren't a fifteen-minute-long swearing session.

Easy, convenient, no-tool installation saves you tons of frustration, and once it's on, fiddling between rides is kept to a minimum thanks to the aforementioned Hitch Switch system, which folds down and tilts away from your car for1 easy rear access. The industry-leading seven-inch spacing between bikes ensure protection on the road, while confident stability and fit comes with the integrated anti-sway design that prevent bike-to-bike contact and even folds away when not needed. Narrow cradle arms accommodate a wide range of bikes from your child's beginner bike to your off-road rig, which are safe during pit stops thanks to the integrated, retractable cable that easily locks the bikes down to prevent theft.

  • Impressively light, convenient hitch bike rack for two bikes
  • Aluminum construction saves weight while retaining strength
  • Fast, tool-free installation for speed, stability, and security
  • HitchSwitch system folds neatly away for tailgate or trunk access
  • Integrated anti-sway design keeps bikes locked-in place

Great bike rack

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
True to size

I could not understand the IKEA-like instructions until I went online and watched a couple installation/assembly videos. (Not being familiar with bike racks, it appeared there were two missing pieces on the rack, but there weren’t!) Once I watched the videos , the pictograms made perfect sense! Received the rack in two sections. It was already set up for a 2” hitch so I could skip the first steps of assembly. Easy to attach the two pieces. After that, it was ready to go. It’s lightweight. It tightened up well into the hitch with the adjustment knob. Took me a minute to.get the feel for the key lock system.

Found the included bike hold down straps to be a PIA. Replaced them with 15 inch Voile straps. Perfect solution. Key lock, to lock rack to trailer hitch works fine. Included cable lock system is a bit finicky; don't use it. You also need to use a tie down, to vertical bar on rack to hold bike from swinging fore and aft. Use a rubber shock cord, with hooks at each end; this holds bike against rack.


Will this fit a 2021 Hyundai Kona (non-electric)? Thanks!

Hey David, As long as the vehicle has a 1.25 or 2 inch hitch, this hitch rack should work great with it!


I have just purchased a Thule Aluminum 2 bike hitch with lock. The parts list shows a lock cylinder and two keys plus a lock cylinder change key. I only have the cylinder and one square top key. The parts bag was sealed. Please advise. thanks.
