Trailer hitch Mount Bike Carrier Recommendations for a 2015 Santa Fe Sport with Factory Hitch


Just bought a 2015 Santa Fe Sport with a hitch already installed. In need of a bike rack - will be transporting one womens road bike the majority of the time but could be others from time to time. Any recommendations? Thanks!

It looks like the factory trailer hitch for a 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has a 2 inch receiver opening so there are numerous bike rack options. But the Thule Helium Aero, # TH9043PRO, is one of my all-time favorite racks. Not only does it look as awesome as it does, but it has the features to back up its stunning good looks.

It has the latest and greatest in cradle technology that will protect the bike frame better than any other hanging rack. It features an integrated cable lock and anti-rattle device. And it is easy to handle, store, remove, install because it only weighs 19-1/2 pounds.

With a hanging bike rack like this though you may need an adapter to carry women's or alternative frame bikes. I recommend using bike adapter bar # 64005. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level and will provide better ground clearance. I have to use these adapters and without them my wife's bike would be at a severe angle and I would not be able to load my son's bike at all. I have linked a video showing how the adapter works.
