Thule Hitching Post 4 Bike Rack #TH934XTR vs. Inno Aero Light 4 Bike Rack #INH640


Overall of the two subject items, which one is better built, of higher quality and lighter self weight? Thank you.


Expert Reply:

The Inno # INH640 Aero Light weighs about 40 lbs, minus the shipping packaging, while the Thule # TH934XTR Hitching Post Pro weighs about 5 lbs less, at 35 lbs.

In terms of quality, I'd place both on the same level but in terms of how easy they are to use, I'd certainly give the nod to the Inno product.

The Inno rack tilts rearward using a foot pedal and the arms fold down flat using a thumb latch, while you'll need to remove pull-pins on the Thule rack to tilt it and fold down the arms. The Aero Light features ratchet straps to hold the bikes in place, while the Thule uses rubber straps that some find difficult to use. Finally, the Inno Aero Light includes a keyed alike hitch and cable lock for security, while they are an optional upgrade on the Thule rack.

I like Thule products, but in this comparison, I'd personally choose the Inno rack, hands down. Even though it weighs a couple few more pounds.

If you'd care to see a demonstration video for both racks, use the provided links.
