The Thule Helium Pro lightweight aluminum trailer hitch mounted bicycle rack is nearly half the weight of traditional steel frame hitch racks. Thule has incorporated maximum convenience, bike protection and security all into one sleek, stylish hitch rack. The Thule Helium Pro Snug-Tite Stinger makes installation easier than ever. To install the rack, simply push the bike rack into your receiver hitch until the integrated auto-hitch-pin snaps into place or engages with your hitch. The tightening knob will activate the anti-rattle mechanism to help eliminate vertical and horizontal movement for a secure and stable fit. The Helium Pro has a compact bike cradle design that accommodates a variety of bike sizes and frame styles. If you have a odd shaped bike frame or traditional women's bike you may want to consider Thule's 982xt bike frame adapter (sold separately - see below). The Helium Pro cradles use a ratcheting style cradle strap - making loading and unloading your bikes quick and easy. The bike cradles are spaced 7" apart providing a greater distance between bikes for a safe and secure fit. Bike cradles also include Anti-Sway fasteners which help provide extra stability, protection and prevent bike-to-bike contact. The Helium Pro accommodates both 1.25 and 2 inch receivers - right out of the box. The Helium Pro's sleek, ultra-light aluminum frame design improves ground clearance and increases the distance between bikes for superior bicycle protection. The Helium Pro lower Hitch Switch Lever enables fast and easy access to the rear of your vehicle. All bikes must be removed from the carrier before tilting it down. The upper Hitch Switch gives you the ability to quickly fold down the bike arms when the rack is not in use. The Helium Pro includes a built-in cable lock. A locking knob on the hitch connection locks the bike rack to your vehicle.
