Why We Like The Helium Pro Bike Rack

Incredibly lightweight and unbelievably easy to use, the Thule Helium Pro Bike Rack has a strong, yet featherweight aluminum construction and quick-release Hitch Switch to make sure installation and loading and unloading bikes aren't a fifteen-minute-long cursing session.

Easy, breezy, no-tool installation saves you tons of frustration, and once it's on, fiddling between rides is kept to a minimum thanks to the aforementioned Hitch Switch system, which folds down and tilts away from your car for easy rear access. The industry-leading seven-inch spacing between bikes ensure protection on the road, while confident stability and fit comes with the integrated anti-sway design that prevent bike-to-bike contact and even folds away when not needed. Narrow cradle arms accommodate a wide range of bikes from your child's beginner bike to your off-road rig, which are safe during pit stops thanks to the integrated, retractable cable that easily locks the bikes down to prevent theft.


  • Seriously light, convenient hitch bike rack for three bikes
  • Aluminum construction saves weight while retaining strength
  • Fast, tool-free installation for speed, stability, and security
  • HitchSwitch system folds neatly away for tailgate or trunk access
  • Integrated anti-sway design keeps bikes locked-in place
  • Seven-inch spacing between bikes eliminates contact
  • Integrated cable lock secures your bikes with confidence
  • Carries up to three bikes (112.5lbs total)

Great lightweight bike rack, but straps need work.

I have a Saris two bike hitch rack, which worked great but was very heavy and cumbersome to install on my 2 inch receiver. I wanted something more lightweight for my solo rides. The aluminum hitch rack is great; well engineered. The supports tilt down out-of-the-way when your bike is not mounted, and the vertical part can tilt away from your SUV so the hatchback can open, which are all nice features. Also, there is a significant weight savings which I appreciate. I had read the reviews prior to purchase and realize there were numerous complaints over the straps. This is all true. The straps are suboptimal. They tend to jam, especially the one that goes around the seat post. I think the key is to keep them lined up perfectly and not tighten them on any sort of angle. If they get jammed, they’re extremely difficult to remove. I could foresee a situation where you may need to actually cut one. I guess that’s why they sell strap kit separately. I think Thule should do their homework and design a better system that will be retrofitted to the existing racks that are out there. Sort of a shame to let the crummy straps take the luster off of an otherwise great bike rack.

Great Rack

We've had a Helium rack for about 5 years. Easy to install and remove. Holds bike firmly. The only issue is the rubber straps deteriorate over time, but are fairly easy to replace.

Redesigned and not better

We had no choice but to replace a Helium 2 due to a broken part that Thule could not replace. The new model is higher and has a better hitch mechanism, but has awful ratchet straps instead of the very easy to use rubber straps. Why the dumb redesign I don’t know.

This rack is just right!

I recently purchased the Helium Pro Three to transport our two bikes. I went with the three bike version vs. the two bike version to allow a bit more space between the two bikes. This rack is super! I have a factory 2" receiver on my Jeep and the rack works beautifully. It's light but extremely sturdy and well constructed. Everything works as it should. It was a worthwhile purchase. In this world today, you get what you pay for. You buy cheap, eventually you replace cheap. If you do your research and buy quality products and take care of your purchase, you will be satisfied for a very long time.

Fits on 4Runner!

It’s easy to assemble and reliable. I used for my trek mountain bike and no problem so far. It comes in a box with everything you need. You can feel how this product is well designed.

Super Lightweight

I have used the Helium Pro a few times now and its perfect for taking my older model touring bike from home to the bike paths. My number one reason to love the Helium is a tie between the overall weight (one arm carry on-off the truck) and the fact that it secures very tightly to my 2 inch receiver (no bouncing around while driving). I have put my flat bar touring bike and mountain bike on it together and there is plenty of room to spare. Assembly was easy, the integrated lock is easy to use and the tilt feature lets me get into the back of the truck if I need to.
