  • Premium hitch-mount bike carrier for up to three bikes
  • Half the weight of traditional hitch racks
  • Features excellent ground clearance, bike protection and security

The last thing you want to do before a trip to your favorite mountain-biking spot is wrestle with a heavy hitch-mount carrier. The Helium comes in at half the weight of traditional hitch racks and is incredibly easy to install. It's been redesigned for 2013 with greater ground clearance, better bike protection and more security. Sleek Aero-Design improves ground clearance and increases the distance between bikes for maximum protection. Patented Hold Fast Cradles with Road Dampening Technology (RDT) keep bikes stable and absorb road shock. Hitch Switch quick-release lever provides rapid access to the rear of your vehicle. Arms fold down when not in use. No Sway cages with RDT keep bikes from banging into each other during transport and absorb even more road bumps. Integrated locking cable and AutoAttach lock knob lock the bike to carrier and carrier to the vehicle. No-Tool AutoAttach feature allows fast and easy installation and removal. Adapts to fit both 2" and 1¼" receiver hitches; Snug-Tite Stinger eliminates space around the receiver to prevent rack movement. USA.
