Kia Sportage Bike Rack Questions

  • The Glass Hatch Hook Adapters are a different style support strap for Yakima trunk mount bike racks. Rather than having a metal hook on the end that fits around the side of the rear hatch, a glass hatch hook adapter is secured inside the hatch or trunk, and prevents the strap from being removed while the trunk is shut. One set of glass hatch hook adapters is included with the Yakima KingJoe Pro 2 Bike Rack # Y02624. I have attached a photo showing the glass hatch adapters....

  • 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...

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...

  • 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 # 87612 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...

  • 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 KingJoe Pro # Y02619. This carrier has arms that move independently of each other...

  • 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 Hidden...

  • 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...
