Thule Helium Aero 3 Bike Hitch Rack




Thule Helium Aero 3 Bike Rack - The Helium Aero 3 Bike Rack by Thule lets even the smallest of vehicles take advantage of the versatility, stability and strength of the popular hitch mount bicycle carrier design. It is nearly half the weight of most hitch racks and is the only ultra-light rack to integrate maximum convenience, bike protection, and security into one sleek aero-design. No-Tool AutoAttach allows you to install and remove the rack from your vehicle quickly and easily, while an integrated locking cable and AutoAttach lock knob lock the bike to carrier and carrier to vehicle. Patented Hold Fast Cradles with RDT (Road Dampening Technology) secure the bike to the rack while absorbing road shock, and No-Sway cages with RDT prevent contact and absorb road shock for frame protection.

Snug-Tite Stinger virtually eliminates rack movement by removing space in the receiver, while the Snug-Tite receiver lock virtually eliminates hitch rack movement in receiver and locks the hitch rack to the vehicle. The Hitch Switch allows arms to fold down when not in use and tilts the carrier away from vehicle for trunk, hatch or tailgate access. The Helium Aero fits all 1 1/4 inch or 2 inch receivers with included hitch adapter, and the No-tool installation, makes it simple to load into hitch and just tighten the receiver knob. No matter where you enjoy peddling the day away, let the Thule Helium Aero 3 Bike Rack help you on your way.
