More details on the Thule Helium 2 (9040)
Overview: The Thule Helium 2 (904010) bike rack is designed to securely hold two bikes to your vehicle. Bikes are easily secured to the rack using ratcheting wheel loops, with no bike frame contact. The Helium 2 fits 26"-29" wheel sizes with tires up to 3" wide. Its durable aluminum construction makes it easy to install, use, and remove. The built-in HitchSwitch lever lets the rack tilt down for access to the trunk or hatch, even with bikes installed. Fold-down bike arms make for a compact form when the bike rack is not in use. An integrated cable-lock locks the bikes to the rack (lock and keys provided). The Helium 2 bike rack can easily be mounted and locked to the vehicle "tool-free" using the SnugTite stinger attachment (lock and key provided).
