Coming Spring 2020
The Thule Helium Platform 9040 is a 2 bike aluminum hitch mounted bicycle carrier making it lighter than most other platform bike racks on the market. The Helium Platform's burly construction, ease of use, and secure design makes this rack extremely appealing. The Helium Platform transports bikes using a wheel-compression design to avoid any contact with the frame. The ratcheting wheel loops quick and easily hold bikes securely to the bike rack. The "no frame contact" wheel loop design prevents the rack from scratching or damaging the frame and allows it to transport a wide range of bikes. The Thule Helium Platform is compatible with both 1.25" and 2" receivers hitches - right out of the box. No additional adapters are needed. The Helium Platform will hold up to a 50" frame, accommodate wheel sizes ranging from 26" to 29" and fit tires up to 3" wide. Thule's Helium Platform will carry bikes up to 37.5 lbs per bike. The Helium Platform HitchSwitch Lever allows the rack to fold-up - making it great for both storage and minimizing vehicle length when installed. It may also be tilted down when loaded or empty for better access to the rear of your vehicle. The Helium Platform comes fully lockable using an integrated cable lock to lock your bike to the rack and a locking knob to lock your bike rack to your vehicle. Please check the following fit compatibility chart to ensure this bike rack will work with your particular hitch style - Thule Hitch Rack - Fit Tips Chart.
