I bought it for its light weight and simplistic design. That's good, however there's a part that due to bad design easily falls out, and into the shaft, making it very hard to retrieve. This made installation take WAY longer than should be. I've not taken the rack off the car yet, as its brand new, but I hope that part doesn't cause problems when I take on/off because that's the whole reason I bought a light weight rack. Also, there's a plastic cover for that same part that broke immediately.

Very Light Weight

That is the first thing I noticed. Secondly, assembly requires your full attention. And lastly, well constructed. It attaches to my receiver hitch in front of my pickup. I would recommend this bike rack.

THE THULE HELIUM AERO HITCH IS LIGHT, EASY TO INSTALL AND REMOVE AND STRONG. CARRY'S MY TWO ROAD BIKES WITH EASE.

The Helium is a solid performer

This item does everything you would expect from a Thule. The receiver lock works, the swing away down lock is tight and clicks in the upright position with authority, there is no doubt it clicked into place correctly and the same can be said with the up and down motion with the carrier bars. The handles that provide this motion are large enough to get your hand into them and you don't skin up your fingers doing so. Cable lock is great. my bike doesn't sway back and forth going over bumps.
