Rotating Arms with Ratcheting Wheel Hooks

Kuat NV 2.0 wheel hooks

The NV 2.0 Base has ratcheting hooks that grab your bikes firmly by the front wheel - not the frame. It's perfect for carrying carbon bikes or bikes with a custom paint job. To load a bike, simply place your front wheel in the cradle, rotate the arm up and over the wheel, and press down firmly on the ratcheting hook.


Large Front Wheel Cradles

Kuat NV 2.0 front wheel cradles

The front wheel cradles will easily accommodate fat bike wheels. They can also be adjusted to perfectly fit each bike's wheelbase. Use the included Allen key stored in the compartment at the back of the rack to adjust.


Sliding Ratcheting Straps

Kuat NV 2.0 ratcheting straps

Ratcheting rear-wheel straps slide along the wheel trays to accommodate bikes with a variety of wheelbases. Press the quick-release button on the strap buckle to remove your bikes. An extender strap is included for use with 1 fat bike. Additional extender straps (sold separately) are available if you have more than 1 fat bike.


Foot Lever for Easy Tilting and Folding

Kuat NV 2.0 foot lever

The spring-loaded foot lever is easily accessible even with your bikes loaded. No more crawling through your bikes or squeezing between the rack and the vehicle to hit the tilt release lever.


Kuat NV 2.0 tilting rackKuat NV 2.0 folding rack

The foot lever lets you tilt the rack down with bikes loaded for cargo area access. It leaves both hands free so that you can lower the rack in a controlled manner. When the rack is unloaded you can fold it up for storage.


Optional Repair Stand

Kuat NV 2.0 Trail Doc

This rack gives you the option of adding the Trail Doc (TDKB - sold separately). It's a handy repair stand that attaches to the front of the rack. It lets you position your bike as needed for adjustments, cleaning, and on-the-go repairs. It can be also be locked into place to prevent theft and includes a cap for the housing if you prefer to use the rack without it.


Tool-Free Installation with Anti-Rattle Device

Kuat NV 2.0 anti-rattle device

The knob at the front of the shank lets you quickly and easily install the rack. Just slide the shank into your hitch and turn the knob until snug. The knob deploys an anti-rattle wedge inside the shank to help take play out of the hitch connection. The locking hitch pin has an Allen tool on the end that further tightens the hand knob if you are still experiencing rattle after hand-tightening.


Complete Security for Bikes and Rack

Kuat NV 2.0 locking cable

Each wheel tray has an integrated cable lock that lets you secure your bike to the rack. A 1/4" thick, braided steel cable extends from the end of the wheel tray, threads through your bike's frame, and locks back onto itself.


Kuat NV 2.0 locking hitch pin

A locking hitch pin is also included to secure the rack to your vehicle. Lock cores (sold separately) let you key each lock alikeso you only need 1 key for the rack.

First, trying to find the proper rack for my needs was a little tough. Have two emtb along with regular mtb. Weight and wheelbase were a factor with a lot of the other 4 bikes racks. The Kuat rack was able to accommodate. etrailer has so much info that sometimes its too much. I had to [search for] their cs number and just call to talk with one of their reps.
Stephen R. took my call and was awesome. We looked at a few options before choosing the Kuat. It was supposed to be delivered in about 5-7 days, but came in 2.
The rack is easy to put together and looks great. It was a hard pill to swallow for this much money, but after seeing the quality I felt much better.
This does fit my 2018 Jeep Wrangler jk unlimited with a spare tire. Have BF Goodrich and it will still fold up. You cannot open the rear while attached though.
Rack was great on our first trip of 200 miles.
Bikes stayed secure and did not rub.

Thanks Stephen R. and etrailer.

The Kuat bike rack has preformed better than expected. We are applying the rack to some very busy commercial demand, far exceeding the wear and tear of a single family situation. I would highly recommend this product.

It would nice to have electric marker lights that illuminate when the bike rack is in the service position.




by:

This rack definitely has some pros and cons (as do most racks). A minor frustration is that despite ordering the rack and add-on at the same time, the keys don’t match so if locking three or more bikes you need two different keys (this has only really irritated me when it was raining). As other reviewers have mentioned, this thing is heavy. Neither my wife nor kids can lift it to put it on or get it off the car by themselves. The downside is that given the size of the rack it is not real convenient to just leave it on the car. When the rack is in the up position, it is impossible to get in the back so it is necessary to lower the rack each time you want to get in. The other downside is that the rack significantly cuts down on visibility when backing up. All that being said, the rack is rock solid and the bikes are very secure. The rack is great for extended trips. When loaded and tipped down, it is great to be able to open and access the back. The spacing of the bikes is great and I don’t have to spend 15 minutes figuring out how to slide four bikes in just the right spot to make them all fit as I did with my old rack. Best of all the bikes are only sustaining damage on the trail, not on the back of the car! Despite some minor annoyances, I highly recommend this rack. As for assembly, my 13 year old put it together by himself in about 20 minutes (I promised him i would include that fact).


Comments
In the past year we have had some bike upgrades. With three or four modern mountain bikes of a similar size on the rack it is more of a challenge to make them fit. I need to have an allen wrench handy to adjust the bars andor seats for travel. Other than that, the rack has held up great with heavy and frequent use.

Like the ability to add the second part for 4 bikes total. The locking feature works well. Works for mountain bike tires the best. The ratcheting clamp for road bike tires seems to wear on the bike tires but we use a pool noodle cut to size, split it down one-half of the center and place it over the clamp between it and the tire to prevent the wearing. The distance between bikes is good for road bikes but a little snug for the mountain bikes as handle bars and seats tend to rub a bit.

We needed to move up from our Saris Bones 3 rack now that our youngest is on a big girl bike. We initially went for a budget platform rack which was (not surprisingly) subjected to a recall. After an incredible amount of research, I opted for the Kuat NV 2.0 Base. I took advantage of the etrailer price pledge program and was very satisfied with the etrailer staff who were very easy to deal with both on the phone and online.

Following my order, etrailer inadvertently sent me the incorrect base model. The sent me the 1.25 inch instead of 2.0 inch model and as the shipping label covered the hitch size I only discovered this after opening and unpacking it (thereby having to repack and re-ship it). This inconvenience notwithstanding, etrailer was very apologetic, paid for the return shipping and sent out the correct 2.0 inch model.

Unpacking and assembly was easy (the second time...and I learned the valuable lesson of taking photos of the unpacking in the event you need to repack it). You certainly get what you pay for with Kuat! The fit and finish are first rate and the rack's design, in my opinion, makes it the most intuitive, cleanest and best looking rack out there. I was considering the RockyMounts Split Rail 2+2 (similar design and athletics and a bit lighter) but I am so glad I went with Kuat.

I mounted it on my 06 Pilot today in less than 5 minutes with my wife's help (though it can be accomplished solo), locked the pin and tightened the anti-rattle mechanism for a rock solid mount. All bikes fit on it like a dream (my 29er, wife's mountain bike and 2 kids mountain bikes...have not tried by road bike yet but I don't anticipate any issues).

Very impressed with the rack and my etrailer experience.




by:

With a SUV we didn't want to hoist our bikes on the roof (we are rather short in our family), so we looked for a hitch rack that could fit our 4 bikes.
The NV base + the addon works great at this.
Assembly is not the easiest since it can be tricky to get the bolts to line up while holding in place, if you have another person to help that will make it tons easier.
Loading and unloading a bike is very easy and so far the bikes are always securely on without any issue.
The locks are ok, nothing fancy, and nothing that will stop a determined thief, I consider them mostly a "slow them down a little" item.
My only gripe is how heavy it is. We live in the city and plan on removing it from the car while not in use, and that is a bit of a chore with how heavy it is.
Overall if you are looking for a great 4 bike hitch bike, can't really go wrong with it




by:

Quality bike rack. Easy to put together and install. Very solid. Keeps bikes secure and doesn’t bounce around unlike my Thule bike rack. I purchased this rack after almost losing new mountain bikes as I was driving from the carrier bouncing around. It also has integrated cable locks. I bought the additional extension to carry up to 4 bikes. The only criticism is that the extension uses a different type of cable lock with a different key.




by:

I worked with Katie and she's amazing! Her knowledge of the available products was deep and very helpful, she made the process of ordering the bike rack very easy, she followed up post sale to make sure all was okay. Five stars for sure!

The Kuat NV 2 was fairly easy to put together (need an extra set of hands) and my fat tire bike fits it perfectly. Great quality and I'm VERY happy with the rack. Bike doesn't move at all while underway.




by:

This is am excellent bike rack. It is very easy to mount and dismount multiple bikes. It is a bit heavy especially with the 2 additional bike extension.




by:

Love this bike rack, so easy to use.




by:

Very sturdy. Fairly easy to assemble but the instructions could do a better job describing the steps.




by:

Very satisfied!!!




by:

I love my new bike rack, Kuat is top of the line!




by:

This is a great bike rack. Admittedly it's my first platform based trailer hitch rack, but I have no complaints. it's easy to use, built like a tank and looks cool. I like all the features it has as well, like the built in cable locks. They're not Kryptonite grade by any means, but it's a deterrent at least. So far the arms are still stiff enough not to fall over on their own, which was something I was initially concerned about.




by:

Cannot complain about the rack itself or etrailer. The rack was shipped quickly, and the communication was great from etrailer. It is nice to have communication from the company. The price was better than I could find anywhere as well. Would do business again with etrailer, and love the Kuat rack.




by:

I can commute bikes for the whole family now, it is a game changer! Very happy with this product and how it changes my mobility and exploitation possibilities.




by: 02/04/2022

Gets the job done, the 4 bike solution is a bit long off the back of the vehicle and heavy to handle, otherwise very sturdy rack.




by:

great trailer. The only problem was the two separate units were keyed differently, and that presented a real problem on a vacation! Also it would be nice to have turn signals built into the unit




by:

Easy to install and great fit for the bikes! Love the option of turning it from a 2 bikes to 4 rack. It’s also the best looking rack out there, in my opinion. Great buy, no regrets!




by:

Amazing customer service! Called about an update of my order late in the evening and they were super helpful. I will defiantly recommend and purchase from them again.




by:

The rack is heavy and somewhat cumbersome due to the weight to attach to your hitch mount. If you have mountain bikes, be aware that with the longer bar widths and dropper post setup it will take some finessing when loading 4 bikes. The conversion from a 4 bike carrier to 2 Bike is also cumbersome due to the bolts that have to be unthreaded.




by:

I used the base 2-bike rack once already, and it is solid and sturdy. I haven't added the +2 rack yet, but I did get one 20" adapter in both boxes. No need to buy them for smaller kid bikes! Assembly would have been easier with another set of hands but manageable solo using things to hold up pieces while getting the screws threaded. Using hex socket and ratchet way to go over the included hex key. Fits TJ perfectly with aftermarket tire carrier/receiver and 33"x10.5 spare tire. Crazy fast shipping, my estimated delivery date is in 3 days and I already had it a week!




by:

There was a hiccup during the installation process. One of the center bolts from the add-on had slightly bigger diameter on thread that it didn't fit in. I called for customer support to arrange for a new bolt replacement which I desperately needed for a planned bike trip. Allison helped out a lot to expedite the process and Kuat was also able to ship it quickly so that the part arrived one night before my trip. I was able to enjoy the new new bike rack for the trip if it weren't from the great customer support of etrailer and Kuat!
The bike rack carries all bikes through bumpy roads without any problem. It's really sturdy and easy to use. Love the tilting feature so I can open the hatch easily.




by:

The E in Etrailer.com means excellent.
Lori
B was great. The 4-bike carrier I
order arrived quickly. Thank you etrailer
your business is great.




by:

Great product and easy to use. Was on back order last year but customer service was great about keeping me up to speed on process. And the price was the best you can find for new. [online site] couldn’t even compete! Thanks etrailer!

  • Wheel Adapters Included with Kuat NV 4 Bike Carrier
    The Kuat NV 2.0 does not include a wheel adapter for 20-14 inch wheels, it was sold separately as part 016-025-00-00, but is no longer available

  • What Wheel Size Requires an Adapter with the Kuat NV Base Bike Rack
    With the Kuat NV Base 4-Bike Rack part # BA22B-BA02B you have to use the adapter # 016-025-00-00 if the bike wheel is between 20 and 24 inches. Unfortunately this part has been discontinued, and there is not a replacement option.

  • Will the Backup Camera on a 2011 Honda Pilot be Blocked with a Kuat 2.0 Bike Rack?
    From my research on the 2011 Honda Pilot, the backup camera is located above the center of the rear license plate below the Honda emblem. I called my contact at Kuat, and he told me that the measurement of the hitch pin hole to the tallest part with only two trays on the rack (when folded) on the Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack # BA22B-BA02B is 24-3/4 inches. While I cannot confirm with certainty if the folded NV 2.0 would block your camera, I recommend measuring the pinhole to the camera location...

  • Can the Kuat NV 2.0 # BA22B-BA02B be Used as Only a 2-Bike Rack
    The Kuat NV 2.0 # BA22B-BA02B that you referenced can be split and be just a 2 bike rack if you only needed to carry 2 bikes. And then you could easily install the add-on section to make it a 4-bike rack. The add-on section though can not be used as an independent bike rack though. It can only be used as an expansion for the base portion of the rack.

  • Recommended Bike Rack For Expanding From 2 Bike To 4 Bikes
    I do have a recommendation for you as the Saris SuperClamp EX Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # SA4025F is not expandable for 3 or 4 bikes. We have the Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack # BA22B that is rated to carry 2 bikes up to 60lbs each. You can add the 2-Bike Add-On # BA02B to increase capacity to 4 bikes. When you move to the 4 bike rack capacity is limited to 40lbs per bike. We also have it listed as the 4 Bike Rack # BA22B-BA02B so you can see what it looks like together and only have to order 1 item.

  • Trailer Hitch For A 2019 Mercedes Sprinter 2500 with Factory Step Bumper
    For your Sprinter 2500, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13358 that will do a great job for your bike carrier and more should you decide to tow later. This hitch model is designed for either the 144" or 170" wheelbase Sprinter vans with the factory step bumper and is a confirmed fit. I recommend the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 4-Bike Platform Rack # BA22B-BA02B as a solid option to carry your 4 bikes for an outing. The ratcheting hooks and straps mount the bikes by the tire so there...

  • Vertical Load Limit On A 2020 Tesla Model X
    It seems that you're talking about tongue weight as it is the downward force or the "vertical load" on the hitch. 120lbs is way to light to be the gross trailer weight rating. That being said, the Draw-Tite # 76143 2 inch hitch will fit your 2020 Tesla Model X. It has a gross trailer weight of 5,000 lbs. This is how heavy your trailer can be to tow. It has a maximum tongue weight of 750 lbs (Downward vertical force on hitch). This hitch is a lot stronger and can handle heavier accessories...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Bike Rack to Carry Up to 4 Bikes on a Lexus NX200t
    Verify the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch recevier and your Lexus NX200t to make sure you can handle the weight of a fully loaded bike rack. You definitely need a 2 inch Class III hitch on the Lexus which are available so hopefully you already have one. For a rack I recommend the Kuat NV 2.0 Base, part # BA22B-BA02B. It's a platform rack that can carry up to 4 bikes that weigh 40 pounds each. If you're only carrying 2 bikes they can weigh up to 60 pounds each. It uses...

  • Can Kuat Hi-Lo Hitch Extender Be Used with Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Rack
    Yes, the Kuat Hi-Lo Hitch Extender # HL20B can be used with your Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Rack like # BA22B-BA02B. The only thing you will want to keep in mind is that the adapter does reduce the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch by 50 percent. For example if the hitch on your Jeep has a tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds, this will be reduced to 175 pounds when using the Hi-Lo Extender. This means the combined weight of the NV Carrier (around 82 pounds) and your loaded bikes can't...

  • 4 Bike Rack For Pleasure-Way Lexor FL Motorhome
    I recommend the Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack for 4 Bikes # BA22B-BA02B which is capable of supporting up to 40 pounds each for 4 bikes, or 60 pounds each for 2 bikes. To achieve the clearance needed, you will need to use the Kuat Pivot 2 Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks # PVP20B in conjunction. This will allow you to pivot your rack up to 120° away, giving you plenty of clearance.

  • Is Kuat NV 2.0 BA22B-BA02B or Inno INH142 Tire Hold Better for 20 Inch Bikes
    The Inno Tire Hold # INH142 4-bike rack will accommodate children't bikes with 20 inch wheels or adult bikes with up to 29 inch wheels. Inno tells me that a 33 inch wheelbase bike will just fit on the rack. The Kuat NV 2.0 4-bike, part # BA22B-BA02B does not have an adapter for kid's bikes. One huge feature offered by the NV 2.0 is the add-on feature. The rearmost 2-bike portion of the rack is removable, which is handy for when only two bikes need to be carried, and the fact that the rack...

  • Platform 4-Bike Rack that Can be Used as a 2 Bike Rack If Needed
    Unlike the Kuat NV 4 bike rack # BA22B-BA02B the Inno bike rack # INH142 does not have ability to be used as either a 2 bike or 4 bike configuration. If this feature is important to you the best option would be the NV. The NV is widely considered to be the best bike rack out there so this would be a really great choice that you'd definitely be happy with.

  • Can I Use the Hollywood Racks Rack Valet # HRRV-1 with Kuat NV 2.0 with 2-Bike Add-On?
    Yes! Since the Kuat NV 2.0 with 2-Bike Add-On like the # BA22B-BA02B only weighs 82 pounds, you are good to go! This is because the Hollywood Racks Rack Valet Rolling Storage Cart # HRRV-1 has a maximum weight capacity of 100 pounds.

  • Why Does Thule Apex XT Swinging Bike Rack Pivot to Passenger Side
    The Thule Apex Swing XT # TH9027XT will work great to give you complete rear access to the rear doors of your vehicle but it swings to the passenger side like they all mostly do. This is the case because in the event you were on the side of the highway and needed in your hatch you'd be able to pivot the bike rack to the passenger side and not out into traffic to get to the hatch. If you really did want a setup that swung to the opposite side you'd need the adapter # PVD20B with a Kuat...

  • Best Bike Rack for Carbon Frame Electric Bike
    You are correct. It is not recommended to use a frame mounted bike rack with a carbon frame bike.

This could help you reduce the stress on your frame when transporting your bike on the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE # HR1400Z but I don't think it is the best way to carry your carbon frame e bike.

  • Will Add-on for Kuat NV Fit the Kuat NV 2.0
    The add-on from the original Kuat NV will not fit on the new NV 2.0 # NV22G. The add-on for the NV 2.0 is # NA22G. Or they can be purchased together with # NV22G-NA22G. Another model is the Kuat NV 2.0 Base # BA22B. It's very similar to the NV 2.0 except it extends slightly further from the vehicle when installed and does not include the bike repair stand. It also has an available add-on to 4 bikes using # BA02B or to purchase both together use # BA22B-BA02B.

There are separate adapters that allow a 2" bike rack to be used in a 1-1/4" hitch but these cut the capacity of the trailer hitch in half which will not leave you with enough left for a bike rack and four bikes.

    If you wanted to get a hitch, you can get this one # 76015 which will work with any 2 inch bike rack like the NV 2.0 # BA22B-BA02B which also comes in a two bike version # BA22B.

  • Can Kuat NV 2.0 Convert From 4-Bike to 2-Bike Carrier?
    I'd be happy to confirm for you that yes, the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 4-Bike Platform Rack # BA22B-BA02B can indeed convert from a 4-bike carrier to a 2-bike carrier. To do this, there are 4 hex head bolts that you remove with an Allen key (which is included) and slide it right out. As for your bikes fitting so long as they are between 25" and 29" they will be fine. The NV 2.0 Base is a wheel mount rack so you would be able to keep your Thule Yepp like # TH12020235 on your bike if you like.

  • Recommended Hitch For Carrying A Bike Rack On A 2022 Kia Telluride
    With your 2022 Kia Telluride being rated to 5,000 pounds towing and 500 pounds of tongue weight capacity, I highly recommend the etrailer.com Class III hitch # e45ZR. This will match the towing capacity, if you do end up needing it at some point, and is technically rated to 750 pounds of tongue weight, but that is limited to 500 pounds due to your vehicle. With that said, this will have the Kuat NV 2.0 # BA22B-BA02B without any issue at all and will be perfect for your vehicle. As a side...
