Thule Helium loaded on vehicle

The Helium is a great rack for cyclists with carbon frame bikes or bikes with a custom paint job. It grips your bikes by the wheels so it won't scratch the frame, it's easy to load, and you can tilt it with your bikes loaded for cargo area access and fold it up for storage.


Pivoting Upright Arms with Ratcheting Wheel Loops

Thule Helium pivoting upright arms

The rack uses pivoting upright arms with ratcheting wheel loops to grab your bikes firmly by the wheels, rather than the frames. These upright arms allow you to rapidly load and unload your bikes. Simply set your bikes onto the trays, pivot the upright arms against the tires, and ratchet the loops down until snug. The loops have grooves on the inside that accommodate thin road bike tires, standard bike tires, and mountain bike tires up to 3" wide.


Since each arm moves independently, you can move the bikes forward and backward on the trays so the handlebars don't bump into each other. Racks with wheel cradles or hoops don't allow you to do this, or they require tools to move the trays to create this same spacing.


Thule Helium pivoting upright arms

To remove your bikes, press the gray handles to release the loops, then lower the arms.


Grooved Wheel Trays

Thule Helium wheel tray

The Helium doesn't have wheel cradles like most platform bike racks. Instead, it has wheel trays with grooves that accommodate a wide range of tire sizes from narrow 18c road bikes up to 3" wide mountain bikes. Because the grooves run the length of the trays, you can position your bikes exactly where you want them, rather than in a fixed location. This allows you to optimize bike spacing so your bikes don't bump into each other.


Folding and Tilting Design

Thule Helium folded away from vehicle

The rack tilts down - with or without bikes loaded - so you can access your vehicle's rear cargo area.


Thule Helium front-mounted hand lever

Because the HitchSwitch lever is located at the front of the rack, you don't have to worry about crawling through bikes or squeezing between the rack and the vehicle to hit the tilt-release lever. Simply squeeze it then lower the rack. When you raise the rack back up, you'll hear a click to indicate it's secure.


Thule Helium folding up against vehicle

When the rack is unloaded you can squeeze the lever to fold it up for storage. This means you don't have to remove it to park in small lots at the trail head or in cramped parking garages.


Tool-Free Installation with Anti-Rattle Device

Thule Helium anti rattle device

The Helium installs quickly and easily with the AutoAttach system. Simply open the SnugTite hitch pin, slide the shank into your receiver, and close the pin so it slides through the pin hole and shank.


Thule Helium integrated cable lock

Once installed, turn the knob to deploy an anti-rattle wedge in the shank. This helps take play out of the hitch connection.


Complete Security

Thule Helium loaded on vehicle

The Helium includes One-Key System locks to secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle. The integrated cable lock threads around your bikes' frames and inserts into the lock that slides along the cable. The cable stores inside the inner wheel tray when not in use.


Thule Helium loaded on vehicle

The lock on the hand knob secures the rack to your vehicle. The hand knob will spin freely when locked so a would-be thief can't operate it. The locks are keyed alike so you can use the same keys for both locks. Additional One-Key System lock (sold separately) let you make all your Thule products keyed alike.


Hitch Compatibility

Thule Helium loaded on vehicle

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.

I love this product and love etrailer. 5 stars to both. I did my homework ahead of the purchase and with carbon fiber bikes I selected Thule's Helium 2 bike platform rack. I needed a quick shipment as I was going to use it for the upcoming weekends out of town ride (4 days out). I called on Monday afternoon and talked to Steve Z. The product was in stock and Steve said I would receive it Thursday or the latest on Friday, well I received it on Wednesday. Life couldn't be better. I assembled the bike rack that afternoon, easy assembly, good instructions, all parts fit perfectly and the rack was in my Curt receiver 25 minutes later. The Helium platform rack I received was packed very well no damage to any parts, I laid out all the parts and followed the instructions and 25 minutes later the platform rack was on my Rav4 ready for use. I have since used the rack a number of times and it's super simple to use, the bikes are very secure, the rack looks great. I am extremely pleased with Thule's Helium 2 bike platform and with etrailer's customer service. 792945

Review from a similar Helium in Hitch Bike Racks


My second purchased Thule bike rack. The Thule bike rack is quality designed and built. It almost looks and feels like an light aerospace designed product. It is easy to assemble and load into the 2 inch trailer hitch, tighten with turning a knop and locks with a key. Once a person places their bike on the rack, it is a simple process of pressing two levels, folding against bike tires, and snaps with a tight fit. No straps to deal with or moving bike rims/tires. The best part of this bike rack is it very light (22 pounds) and folds up with ease. Now, I can drive the truck into the garage with the folded bike rack (without removing the rack). I am happy with the order processing and Thule product. 822683

Review from a similar Helium in Hitch Bike Racks


Overall pleased with the rack. Nice to find one for a single bike made of aluminum, so it's light weight. I was hoping the tilt back would be enough to clear the back doors on my Class B, but it's not. However since it's fast and easy to take off and on it won't be much of an issue. Have not yet driven the RV since the installation so not able to comment on that. Appreciate the free shipping. Thanks for offering this nice product. 819557

Review from a similar Helium in Hitch Bike Racks


I'm very happy with my Curt hitch and Thule platform bike rack. I was able to install the hitch myself. Putting together the bike rack was easy. I like the weight and simplicity of the rack. I was really surprised when my order arrived a day early. 802317

Ask the Experts about this Thule Hitch Bike Racks

  • 2017 Honda Pilot Touring With Curt Hitch Receiver with 2-Bike Platform Rack
    For your 2017 Honda Pilot Touring, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13146 which is recessed 5 inches from the outermost part of bumper to the center of the hitch pin hole. The Thule Helium 2 Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting - Wheel Mount # TH44VR will not fit when folded as there won't be space between the bumper and the rack unless you add an extender like # 80307 which I don't really recommend.

  • Recommended Platform Bike Rack for Bike With Rear Cargo Rack
    I have a solution for you, but you're not going to be able to use the Thule Helium # TH44VR on a bike with a rear basket/rack like that installed; you won't be able to use a wheel mounting rack on bikes with fenders or rear racks/baskets unfortunately and even when used in the manner you've described I'm not sure that it's going to provide sufficient holding strength to secure the bike safely. Your best bet, and what I recommend, is going with a frame mounting bike rack like the Inno...

  • Comparing Thule DoubleTrack and Helium for 1-1/4 inch Hitch 2013 Honda Crosstour
    Between the two bike racks you mentioned the Thule Double Track # TH9054 is lighter weight at 35 lbs compared to the Thule Helium Platform bike rack # TH44VR which weighs 43 lbs. They both are very easy to use overall and also fit your hitch size so I would go with the DoubleTrack.

  • Hitch Bike Rack for 2017 Cadillac CTS-V
    It looks like the best fit for your 2017 Cadillac CTS-V is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11900. It is a 1 1/4" Class I hitch, and it's a perfectly good hitch for carrying bikes. Most of the best bike racks have integrated adapters or 1 1/4" versions anyways. One thing worth noting however, is that Class I hitches are not rated for more than 2 bikes. You did mention you're only carrying 2 bikes, so you're fine. When you're ready to put a bike rack on your hitch, I have a couple...

  • Can I Use a Hitch Extender With Thule Helium 2 on 2018 Lexus RX 350?
    Using a hitch extender like # HE6000 will cut your hitch's weight capacity in half which is why we usually don't recommend it. One of our hitches that fits your vehicle is the Draw-Tite Hitch # 75540 and it has a 675 lbs tongue weight. If you use it with a hitch extender, your remaining tongue weight capacity is about 335 lbs. The Thule Helium 2 Bike Platform Rack # TH44VR weighs 43 lbs and has a capacity of 37.5 lbs per bike. 43 lbs plus 70 lbs equals 113lbs which is within your new weight...

  • USA Made Platform Bike Racks for Trailer Hitches
    The two main bike rack companies that are made in the USA are Saris and Thule. So for platform racks from them we have the top of the line SuperClamp EX 2 Bike Platform Rack # SA4025F, the Thule T2 Pro # TH9034XT and the Thule Helium Platform # TH44VR. The older version of the T2 which is still really nice is the T2 classic part # TH9044. These all grab the bikes by the tires which protects them from any frame or paint finish damage.

  • Extension to Use Thule Helium Platform Bike Rack on 2020 Mercedes Benz G63 with Rear Spare Tire
    First of all the Thule Helium platform rack, part # TH44VR, is a great rack. Probably my favorite wheel mount hitch rack we carry. The tilt and folding feature is super easy to use, the bikes can easily be staggered without having to move the wheel trays making them easier to load and the rack just plain looks nice. I've linked a demonstration video of it on a Jeep which also has a rear spare like your 2020 Mercedes Benz G63. In the video you can see we used just a standard hitch extender...

  • Will the Thule Helium 2 Bike Platform Rack Work On a Toyota RAV4 (2006-2018)
    The Thule Helium 2 Bike Platform Rack part # TH44VR will work just fine on a Toyota RAV4 with a trailer hitch like the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98864 (2006 - 2018 Toyota RAV4) which is what I recommend using. It can be folded up against the vehicle while not in use and it can be tilted back with the bikes attached for access into the rear hatch.

  • Maximum Allowable Speed With Bike Rack Installed on Vehicle
    Thule doesn't list a maximum speed that could be driven with their bike racks, so they have no opinion to offer as far as that goes. As long as you're at a reasonable highway speed, you shouldn't have any difficulty. Keep in mind that having a bike instatlled on the rack will have an effect on the aerodynamics of the vehicle. These effects will multiply as the speed increases. As long as your bike doesn't have a carbon fiber frame (which don't like hanging style bike racks) the...

  • Comparing Thule Helium 2-Bike Rack and Saris MTR 2-Bike Rack
    So there are a few noticeable and important differences between the Thule Helium 2-Bike Platform Rack # TH44VR and the Saris MTR 2-Bike Platform Rack # SA4032. The first and most significant is the weight capacities of each. The Helium has a 37-1/2 lb per bike weight capacity while the MTR has a 60 lb per bike capacity. That means if you have E-bikes the MTR is definitely the way to go, and to help with that the MTR also has a ramp that can be used with it (the Helium does not), the...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Fit on 2020 Toyota Prius
    The trailer hitch receivers that fit a 2020 Toyota Prius are the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24966 and Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11473. Of the two, I highly recommend the Curt # C11473 because it gives you the best bumper clearance and ground clearance, which is important for accessories like bike racks or cargo carriers to keep them safely away from your Prius while avoiding scraping the ground. Keep in mind these are Class I hitches so if you plan on using a bike rack,...

    I'll start out by saying that there isn't a platform bike rack that will allow you to carry a total of 5 bikes; and you're correct that any rack available for 5 bikes would be a hanging rack that would require the use of an adapter bar like the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes # 64005.

The Curt Class II Hitch # C66KR is slightly easier to install than the Draw-Tite Class II # 36675. For your Class III hitches, you have the Draw-Tite # 76201 and the Curt # C13416 hitches.

The Draw-Tite (pictured on a '20 Outback) is the best for use with a bike rack because it gives you best ground clearance than other hitches, and measures just 1-1/2 inches from the hitch pin hole to the edge of your bumper.
