Product Description


Ultra-Light Hitch Mount Stability for Even the Smallest Vehicles

New for 2013, Thule's Helium Aero product line of hitch mount bicycle carriers allow even the smallest of vehicles to take advantage of the strength, stability, and versatility of the popular hitch mount bicycle carrier design. The Helium Aero is literally half the weight of standard hitch mount bicycle carriers currently available in its class. Thule has made this possible by using rugged aluminum construction, paying special attention to carrier and material stress points, and developing the patented Snug-Tite stinger section, which connects to the hitch receiver. The Snug-Tite Stinger virtually eliminates rack movement by removing space in the receiver, dramatically reducing stress on materials. The result is a groundbreaking product line that does not skimp on features. Key carrier features include: Ultra-light carrier weight, premium road dampening features along bike arms to stabilize bike frames, compatibility with 1-1/4" and 2" hitch receivers, complete locking functionality, and the ability to fold down bike arms and lean the carrier base stem to the rear.
