Thule Helium Aero Aluminum Bike Rack for 2016 Subaru Forester


We have a 2016 Forester and are interested in getting the rear mount bike rack you have on your webpage. I went to my local Subaru dealer to ask about their bike rack. I noticed from the brochure they have for the 2017 Forester an aluminum bike rack available. I have several questions. Is the aluminum rack available through your company and would it fit a 2016? Does the rack you offer have a lock to keep the rack from being stolen? Thank you for your response.

Thule is the manufacturer of the Subaru bike racks and we do carry their aluminum racks. Your 2016 Subaru Forester will look amazing with the Thule Helium Aero 2 Bike Rack, part # TH9042PRO on the back. This lightweight aluminum rack is top-of-the-line. It tilts for easy access to your rear cargo area and a built-in anti-rattle hitch pin for tool-free installation. To keep your bikes safe, Thule provides anti-sway cradles with Road Dampening Technology which securely hold your bikes at 3 different points. It also comes with Thule's One-Key System locks to deter theft of both your rack and your bikes. If you'd like the flexibility of carrying an extra bike, Thule also has a 3-bike version, # TH9043PRO.

These Thule racks are made in the USA and have a limited lifetime warranty. I've provided a link to a video of the 2-bike version on a 2015 Forester so that you can get an idea of how it will look on your 2016 model.
