Description
Specs
At just half the weight of traditional trailer hitch mount bike racks, and with a unique no-tool AutoAttach feature, the Thule 9042 Helium Aero 2 bike hitch rack and Thule 9043 Helium Aero 3 bike hitch rack are incredibly easy to handle, install and remove even when done by yourself. The Thule Helium Aero hitch bike rack fits both 1 ¼” and 2” hitches and carries up to two or three bikes of virtually any style, size or shape. The revolutionary, advanced arc design of the bike arms improves ground clearance and spacing between bikes for optimized loading and unloading. The Hold Fast cradles with RDT (Road Dampening Technology) absorb road shock while the patented No-Sway Cages prevent bike to bike contact or swinging into the vehicle. The SnugTite stinger virtually eliminates wobble between the stinger and the receiver. Full system locking security is provided with AutoAttach lock knob to secure the entire Thule Helium Aero hitch bike rack to vehicle receiver hitch and an integrated cable lock to secure bicycles to the carrier. Integrated Hitch Switch Lever enables arms to fold down when not in use and bike rack to fully tilt-down and out of the way for rear of vehicle access (with bicycles unloaded).
