Feather light but heavy on premium features, the all new Thule 970XT Helium hitch bike rack is made of ultra-light aluminum and is just half the weight of traditional hitch mounted bike carriers. If you donít feel like engaging in a full body workout every time you install or remove your hitch bike rack, then the Thule Helium is the hitch mounted bike rack for you! Thule 970XT Helium is a 2 bike carrier (Thule 971XT Helium 3 bike hitch rack version also available). And to make the install and removal process even easier, the Thule Helium uses an easy to reach locking knob to tighten and lock the stinger into the receiver, no tools necessary!

Included Stinger Swinger hitch adapter makes this rear bike carrier compatible with both 2 inch and 1-1/4 inch hitches right out of the box. The narrow cradle arms can hold virtually all styles of bikes without the need for a bike frame toptube adapter, ideal for womenís and kidís frames (we do recommend the Thule 982 TopTube Adapter, not included; see accessory add-ons below, for easist loading of bicycles without a traditional horizontal top tube frame including some women's, kids, bmx and freeride / downhill bike frames). The included Thule T3 cradles with 955 No-Sway cages hold the bikes securely in place and prevent bike-to-bike contact, even on bumpy roads. Full system security, bicycles are easily locked to the Thule 970XT Helium hitch rack with the integrated locking cable and the Helium itself locks to the receiver hitch via the included locking receiver lock knob. Support Arms fold down when not in use for convenient parking and pulling into garages. The handy Hitch Switch lever tilts the carrier away for easy access to rear of vehicle.
