Yakima Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2015 Kia Sportage

Today on our 2015 Kia Sportage, we're going to be test fitting the Yakima Light Rider Two Bike Rack, part number Y02472. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. The first feature I like to show off is the integrated cable lock at the back of the mast. It fits into this portion here. You'll pull it out like so, wrap it around your bikes and attach it to this point here at the end. That's going to give your bike some security, prevent theft and tampering. We also have bottle openers here on the end of each arm.



Thule Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2015 Kia Sportage

Today on our 2015 Kia Sportage, we're going to be test fitting the Thule T2 Pro bike rack, part number TH9034. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and take a closer look, and show off some of the features. Now the first and most important feature about this bike rack, is the fact that it can tilt away from the vehicle with the bike still attached. You just come up to the front here, and there's this gray handle that you push or pull towards yourself to release it. It's a lot nicer than some other racks, which will have the switches up towards the front, and make it a little more awkward to lower it.

We have two cradles in place with three straps, two on our frame here and one as our anti-sway strap in the back. To release those we're just going to pull down and lift up, and be able to pull our bike off and set it off to the side. With our bike out of the way, I always suggest that you replace your straps so you don't lose or damage any of them. Now we'll take a few measurements here. We're going to do our overall first. With our arms hanging out we're adding about 21 inches to our vehicle.

Kia Sportage Bike Rack Questions

  • There are three upgrades you'll find on the Thule # TH9009XT Archway that you won't find on the # TH910XT Passage. The Archway provides upgraded cradles that are padded a bit heavier for better protection for your bike. The Archway also includes an integrated cable lock and a TrunkLocker strap that you can shut in the hatch that secures the rack to the vehicle. These two features would help deter theft. These features explain the price differential, but it'll be up to you...

  • I have some good news, and some not so good news for you. The good news is that we do have several bike racks that are confirmed as a fit for the 2014 Kia Sportage. The not so good news is, that I have spoken with my contacts at Saris, and the Bones 3 Bike Rack # SA801 is not confirmed as a fit for the 2014 Kia Sportage. My contact explained that mounting position for the top most straps that the Bones uses to attach to the rear hatch are not properly supported for this carrier. The...

  • We offer several different trunk mount bike racks for your 2014 Kia Sportage. I have attached a link to all of the bike racks that have been confirmed to fit your vehicle for you to check out. The bike rack that I recommend looking into is the Thule Raceway 2 Bike Rack, # TH9001PRO. This is one of the top trunk mount bike racks on the market and it offers many great features. This bike rack uses 4 ratcheting cables rather than 6 nylon straps that can wear and stretch. The...

  • Don't worry I can help you figure out if the Rhino-Rack # RRRBC045 will fit your 2012 Kia Sportage. First thing you will need for your Sportage to transport the bike rack is a trailer hitch. If you don't already have one I recommend the 2 inch over the 1-1/4 due to better compatibility with accessories. The Draw-Tite # 75717 would be a great fit whether you have a SX model or not. If you prefer to get the 1-1/4 hitch, I recommend the Draw-Tite # 36510 over the Curt hitch...

  • The spoiler, although small, will prevent you from using a trunk mount bike rack. The spoiler is not rated for the stress associated with carrying a bike on a trunk mount rack. To carry bikes on your 2012 Kia Sportage you will need to install a trailer hitch like # 75717 and use a hitch mount bike rack. For a 3 bike rack I recommend the Swagman XP, # S64910-2. This is a 3 bike rack with a single arm and rotating cradles which is compatible with many types of bikes without the...

  • As long as you have a hitch installed on your 2012 Kia Sportage like the Curt Hitch part # C13120 the # 59403 would work well for you.

  • The upper arm a trunk mount bike carrier will not put all that much pressure on the back glass on your 2011 Kia Sportage. This is because the weight of the bikes is pulling down and away from the upper straps and arm so most of the tension is on the upper straps and lower arm of the carrier. For a 2-bike carrier that is at a great price point and that fits your Sportage I recommend the Yakima HalfBack # Y02636. This carrier has arms that move independently of each other for...

  • To carry 4 bikes at the rear of your 2009 Kia Sportage your best option would be to use a receiver hitch and a hitch mounted bike rack. One of our most popular 4 bike racks is the Thule Hitching Post, # TH934XTR, which has anti-sway cradles to prevent damage to your bikes or the back of the vehicle and can be folded down away from the rear of the vehicle for access when out on a ride. If you don't have a receiver hitch, the hitch I recommend for your vehicle is the Draw-Tite...

  • As long as you have a Class III hitch installed on your 2008 Kia Sportage like the Draw Tite Hitch part # 75561 yes, you could install the SportRack 4 Bike Carrier # SR2902LR that you referenced. It's hard to say for certain, but I would almost guarantee that you would not be able to open you rear window with the bikes loaded. If you are looking for a 4 bike rack that will give you complete rear cargo access with bikes loaded I would recommend the Thule Vertex Swing 4 Bike...
