Image Descriptor

Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle. However, to mount certain bikes or to keep your bike level on the rack, a bike adapter bar may be required. Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.


Inno Aero LIght 4-Bike Rack

This hitch-mounted, hanging-style bike rack holds up to 4 bikes on the back of your vehicle. The Aero Light has front-mounted levers that let you easily tilt the rack down for rear cargo access and fold the arms down for storage. It also has an anti-rattle hitch pin and integrated cable with keyed-alike locks that secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle.


Dual Arms


Dual Arms

The Aero Light has dual arms that provide your bikes with excellent support and ground clearance during transport. The arms secure each bike twice along the top tube and once along the seat post or downtube. This reduces rocking to help eliminate bike-to-bike and bike-to-vehicle contact.


Folding Arms

The thumb lever lets you fold the arms down when not in use. It's located on the front of the rack so you don't have to reach around the back to access it.


Anti-Sway Cradles


Anti-Sway Cradles

The Aero Light has soft, rubber anti-sway cradles that rotate around the arms to accommodate your bikes' frames. They also slide along the arms for optimal bike spacing. The cradles have durable, dual-molded ratcheting straps to hold your bikes firmly in place on the rack.


Tilting Rack with Front-Mounted Foot Lever


Tilting Rack

The rack tilts for easy access to your vehicle's rear cargo area. Just step on the foot lever at the base of the rack. And when you're ready to go, lift the rack up until it snaps into place with an audible click.


Foot Lever

The foot lever is located on the front of the rack. This makes it easier to tilt the rack when compared with other hanging-style racks that require you to reach around the rack to access the lever.


Complete Security for Bikes and Rack


Bike Locks

The Aero Light includes locks to secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle. The locking cable threads around your bikes' frames and inserts into the lock at the end of the left arm. The cable stores inside the mast when not in use. There is also a sliding cover that helps prevent water from getting into the key hole.


Locking Hitch Pin

To secure the rack to your hitch, simply insert the hitch pin and connect the lock to the end of the pin. The locks are keyed alike so you can use the same keys for both locks.


Hitch Adapter

The rack works with both 1-1/4" and 2" hitches. To use it in a 1-1/4" hitch, simply remove the adapter with the included Allen key.

Video Transcript for Inno Aero Light 4 Bike Rack Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the INNO Aero Light Four Bike Rack for inch and a quarter and two inch hitches. It's going to be part number INH640. Our Aero Light's going to be a nice sturdy bike rack that's going to allow us to carry up to four bikes on the back of our vehicle. It is a hanging solid bike rack, the thing that's going to promote very good ground clearance, but it's still going to have a very secure grip on all of our bikes. The Aero Light is going to accept a wide variety of different kinds of bikes, but keep in mind, just so we can get all of them in place without having to worry about too much contact, and so that they're nice and level, we may need to use an adapter bar like we have here. We have a wide variety of those available at etrailer.com.

There is an integrated cable lock that's going to come up in the back of the mast, and then tie in right here so we can make sure all our bikes are nice and secure whenever we're going down the road.The metal lock core is going to have a little cover right here, we can simply just slide it upward and give us access to unlock the lock. And then, you feed it into the back of the mast when we're not using it. We went ahead and unloaded our bikes so we can take a closer look and show off some of the features. The way the bikes are going to be held to our bike rack is going to be at three points of contact. We're going to have two on the cross tube, and we're going to have one on the vertical tube, keeping the bikes from swaying back and forth too much.

The cradles are going to have a nice rubber coating, it's going to make sure that we don't scratch our bike, and that it has a nice firm grip. On top of that, we're gonna have these ratcheting strips, they're going to hold our bikes securely. We can take them all the way out and then just insert them in, and ratchet them down until the bike is nice and secure.The nice thing about these anti-sway cradles is when we go to unload or load our bikes, we can actually fold them all the way in, making it a lot easier to slide our bike on without having to contend with fighting our frame getting it over that. And the cradles on the tube here are going to be adjustable, so if we need a little bit of extra room between our bikes, we can slide them back or forward, getting that perfect position, making it easier to get all of our bikes in place. There is a groove in each one of our cradles, and that's to allow room for our cables to go through, so we don't have to worry about smashing.

Whenever we're not carrying our bikes, or our bike rack isn't loaded at all, you can actually come to this lever here at the center of the mast, and if you pull down you can rotate the arms down, and we'll hear that audible click locking into place, as you can see it's going to save quite a bit of room.With our arms folded down, we do have the option to actually tilt our bike rack away so we can get into our cargo area. If you come to this lever right here at the bottom of the mast, we press down, you can rotate the mast down, which will give us plenty of room to get anything in or out that we may need. Just keep in mind, that you do only want to do this when the bikes are not loaded on the bike rack.A few measurements to keep in mind, from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest area on our bike rack, is going to be right about six and a quarter inches. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer edge of the arms, it's going to be just over 36 inches. To work with an inch and a quarter by an inch and a quarter receiver tube openings, we are going to have to take the adapter sleeve off.

They do provide us an Allen key, we remove these two bolts, and the sleeve would come off and we'd be able to put it directly into that receiver tube. It's going to come with an anti-rattle bolt, and then it'll go through your hitch. As you can see, with it in place, if I grab this shank on my bike rack, it's going to take all that slop out of there, minimizing any kind of rattle or noise for a nice smooth ride when we're going down the road. And it's going to be nice and secure because it's going to have that lock in place.A similar bike rack to compare to our INNO Aero Light would be Yakima RidgeBack. It is still a hanging bike rack style, but some of the differences include that the Yakima is going to have a little bit higher weight capacity. It's going to have 40 pounds per bike, with a total of 150 pounds on the four bike rack. Now, it is going to be made out of steel with a powder coat finish, which isn't a bad thing, but our Aero Light is going to be rust proof since it is aluminum. As far as security goes, both the Yakima RidgeBack and our Aero Light are going to have hitch locks. But INNO is going to take it a step further and provide you with that integrated cable lock. Our INNO Aero Light's going to be a great choice. It's going to be easy to use, lightweight and durable, all while keeping our bikes secure while we're traveling down the road.Now, we'll go ahead and take our bike rack on our test course so you can see it in action. Here we're going to go through our slalom course, which is going to show you the side to side action. Next, we'll go to our bumps course, this is going to show you the up and down action, simulating hitting a bump, pulling out of your driveway, or going up into a garage. That'll finish up your look at the INNO Aero Light Four Bike Rack for inch and a quarter and two inch hitches, part number INH640.

I have been searching for a 4-bike rack for some time and came across the etrailer.com website. This website was very helpful as they had video reviews that helped me make my decision and customer support has been awesome! The bike rack was easy to set up and no assembly required. Placing the bike rack in the hitch was manageable for me as I needed to be able to handle the rack without assistance. The setting points that the bike frame sets on are rubber so it does not scratch the bikes. The straps are very easy to plac/ remove and secures the bikes perfectly. I am happy the setting points are able to be moved as otherwise there would be no way 4 bikes would fit. For the price point, I was very happy this rack came with a locking bolt and locking cable. There is one issue with the locking cable. (I have a womens bike and three 20" wheel teen bikes so I need to use an adapter bar for all bikes.) With this set up, the locking cable is not long enough to go through the bike frames but rather is only long enough to string under each adapter bar which does not secure the bikes from theft. If the cable were about 3" longer it would work as intended. The rack with fully loaded bikes traveled very well with little movement. Overall, this appears to be a great bike rack at a good value. I would have awarded 5 stars if the locking cable were longer to appropriately secure the bikes on the rack. 662816

Great bike rack. The bike rack is able to hold the bikes without much swaying. I really like that it has a key to secure it to the hitch and it has a lock for the bikes. Great product! 616758

Review from a similar Inno Aero Light in Hitch Bike Racks


I have 2 other bike racks and this one if far superior. The ease of use, the ability to lock the rack to the car, and the bikes to the rack, make this rack our favorite over our other equipment. 659121

Review from a similar Inno Aero Light in Hitch Bike Racks


Installed this rack on a 2016 Toyota Prius, using a hitch installed by a national rental company. The rack is pretty solid. I've only carried one bike so far, but there's very little play. I expect it to handle two just fine. Moving the arms up or down, or tilting it back to access the hatch, is comfortingly solid, with nice, reassuring clicks when things lock into place. Some might call it stiff, but I appreciate that as it means there's no surprise movement when you release the catch. The Prius is a low profile car with annoyingly low clearance (compared to my Subaru), and the bike rack doesn't help. Steep driveways and deep gutters can cause it to scrape the ground if you're not careful. It partially blocks the backup camera, but that's to be expected. The third brake light in the middle of the hatch is also partially blocked. No issues with installation. The spring for the tilt release foot pedal had to be slightly adjusted; it was blocking the notch, and had to be slid to the side a little bit. 642508

Review from a similar Inno Aero Light in Hitch Bike Racks


Upon opening the box, a great start, nothing to put together and all parts were present without damage. Extremely easy to mount to my Colorado pickup. I like the weight and solid feel of the rack. My bike attached quickly and securely, love the locking mechanisms for the bike and the hitch. I have not driven down the road yet, but the rack seems very stable and doesn’t feel like it will bounce around much at all. As long as the durability is as good as the first impression I would extremely recommend this bike rack. 614206

  • Front Mount Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2013 Ford F-250
  • The front mount hitch receiver I recommend for your 2013 Ford F-250 is the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65049 because it is a bolt-on installation that does not require any drilling into your truck's frame and Draw-Tite's strong reputation for making high-quality trailer hitches. This hitch has a 2" receiver and will work great as a way for you to use a bike rack while you are towing your 5th wheel. I have added a link to an install of this hitch on a F-250 for you to...

  • We do have some great hitch-mounted bike racks that will work well on your 2012 Mazda 5, however based on my research the Inno Vertical Hang 4 Bike Rack # INH540 that you referenced will not be compatible. This is because the Inno Bike Rack requires that the hitch pin hole is recessed no more than 4-1/2 inches behind the rear bumper of the vehicle to ensure no interference between the rack and bumper.
