Thule's 971XT Helium bike rack carries three bikes on your 2" and 1-1/4" trailer hitch receivers. Its lightweight aluminum design makes it easy to install and remove. The Hitch Switch™ lever tilts the carrier away from the vehicle for rapid rear vehicle access, and the carrier's bike arms fold down conveniently when not in use. Thule's anti-sway system prevents bikes from knocking into each other as you transport them. All Thule equipment passes tough European safety standards for car racks.
