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. It's keyed alike with the cable lock so you only need 1 key for the rack.

excellent product; typical Kuat quality. bikes are sturdily held in place while driving.
locks for hitch pin and built-in locks for hitch pin for bikes well done.
I want to compliment the advice I received from etrailer representative Jon Griggs who provided great feedback every step of the way which was key in purchasing my hitch and bike rack.


Still very new, but what an awesome bike rack! Assembly was a snap and the rack is rock-solid when you secure it to the hitch receiver. etrailer was amazing too - excellent communication, price and fast, free delivery. Overall I am extremely happy with the rack and service!


I've taken this rack all over New England on the front of my Dodge Ram 3500 pick up truck with a truck camper. I had no idea it was possible to love a bike rack so much. After one drive I didn't ever worry about it again. So nice that it locks up when I am camping or taking a quick stop for food on the road. So glad I bought it from etrailer. They totally help me pick the perfect rack for my challenging set up.

Bike rack added to our ram 2021 2500.
Purchase completes our set-up for pulling our camper. While the kuat not rated for rv's this will work for standard & electric bikes. Because etrailer's Excellent service & videos, we purchased both of these!

Please keep in mind that hauling bikes on the front of your truck can reduce driver visibility, air flow to the motor, and block your front lights, so you will want to use caution.

Excellent rack - rock solid, holds bike without wobbling. Fits 2021 Toyota Rav4 XLE with Toyota Hitch perfectly. Easy to tilt up and down (but it takes 2 hands to do so, which is a little annoying). At the risk of stating the obvious, it is a little annoying to leave it on all the time - I don't like leaving it horizontal for fear that a car will clip it when driving, so I keep it in the raised position.. But this means that I have to lower it every time I want to access my hatch. Lock works well also. The kids bike adapter seems to work fine (only tried once).

One downer - some of the fasteners are already rusting a little (see pic), and I've only had it on my car for 3 months (May to August in PA).

This product should not be left on the hitch all of the time. Leaving it on will cause excessive rust. Please view page 17 of the manufacturers User Guide under tips and tricks to see how to get the most life out of your bike rack: https:www.kuat.comwp-contentuploadsnv-2-user_guide.pdf

I purchased this rack to carry two e-bikes, which the ads say it would be sufficient for two 60 lb bikes. I always removed the bike batteries to lesson the weight and keep them below 50 lbs. After about a month of travel the bike rack began to fall apart. The bolts holding it together bent and broke and fortunately I was close to home when it happened. I beefed the entire rack up with heavier bolts and also bolted some aluminum square tubing across the middle section and to the cross sections so that it would stand up to the weight of the ebikes. I am now on an extended trip to AZ and NM and so far so good. Also, one of the tire hold down thingys has loosened up due to the weight of an ebike. I would NOT recommend this rack for ebikes, Kuat makes some that are solid across the middle section that would work much better. Personally, I would never buy another Kuat due to the many problems we have had with it.

I am sorry to hear that your bike rack has started to fall apart. I was wondering if you are using this rack on the back of a motorhome, travel trailer or fifth wheel? The Kuat NV is not designed to be used on a motorhome, travel trailer or fifth wheel because of the excessive movement while going down the road. Travel trailers also have a tendency to sway on the highway which can be rough on certain bike racks that are not tested for use on the back of a trailer. I was also curious which e-bikes you are carrying on the rack?
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 03/09/2022
Hello Heather, thank you for your response. I have been using the rack on the back of my pick up truck with an overhead camper. I don’t recall reading anywhere not to use it on an RV. Anyway we have a Himiway bike as well as a mini fold up rad. We remove the batteries when we carry them in order to reduce the weight. I also bought straps that attached to the back of the camper to help support the rack and minimize the movement. I think the problem with this particular rack is the fact that it is bolted together on the crossmembers rather than being a solid bar across which I have seen on other racks. I spent several hours making some adjustments to it and I think it’s OK now however I think it would be important not to advertise that rack as sufficient for 60 pound bikes. It definitely is not that. Once again thank you for your response.
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 03/09/2022
We have not had any complaints about the durability of the construction of the Kuat NV so I am surprised to hear that you needed to brace the rack. It sounds like you are using your Kuat NV in the hitch of your truck. Are you using a hitch extender so the bike rack will clear the back of the overhead camper? Most extensions cut the tongue weight of the hitch in half so the e-bikes may be overloading your setup at that point. It sounds like your e-bikes may be around 70 lbs. The bike rack capacity is 60 lbs per bike so you may want to keep that in mind. You also want to keep in mind that using an extender creates more leverage on the setup and leads to more bouncing of the bike rack especially on the highway.

Buy with confidence if you are here shopping for new bike racks you can already appreciate the vast amount of information provide to consumers to make an informed decision speak for an end user I love the Kuat NV 2.0 rack it assembled very easily 5 bolts to install and hex key is provided no additional tools are need the rack is very solid and sturdy the tilt feature is very smooth and works effortlessly as demonstrated on the websites video and as you can see for yourselves they are priced competitively what else can I say that etrailer hasn’t already covered other than the all black mat colored model finish on the rack isn’t the same as the grey and black with the orange rails it’s more rough texture finish not smoooth automotive like finish on the other two models don’t get me wrong this isn’t a con by any means this is exactly what I was looking for but I do have to say the smooth high quality finish of the other two models is very easy to clean just use a soft microfiber cloth to wipe down dust.


Excellent rack for your ebikes or any bikes. I totally recommend this company. Their customer service is superb. During Covid I accidentally ordered two rack different ones but both pretty expensive. The first one that came was good but not great. I looked all over for reference to me buying one and did not see anything so I accidently ordered this one. I called the company and they said just send the first one back and we will credit you less the shipping charge. They send me the label and my refund was very quick. Do not hesitate to do business with them they are FANTASTIC and so our their products.


Alawys have a great experience with etrailer. I ordered the bike rack late on a Friday afternoon and within 30 minutes, received an email from etrailer that the item was shipped. Wow ! that's fast. etrailer's instructional and products videos on the website help make the right buying decision.


It has been the best bike trailers i have used. Doesnt wobble. And with the locks, it gives you that peace of mind that you can run into the store for a quick moment without your bikes going missing.


I love the Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack I purchased a year ago! It is easy to use and extremely sturdy - the 2 bikes remain secure and movement free! The tipping feature is great when I need to get into the back of my SUV while my bikes are loaded. I recommend the Kuat NV 2.0 to everyone looking for a new or replacement rack!


Easy to build, very sturdy! I haven't used it much yet, but so far so good! I had a Thule single bike rack before and I like this much better, even for just one bike.


I recently bought the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2 Bike Platform Rack from ETrailer.
It is a well-made and well designed platform bike rack. It was easy to assemble. Although the instruction manual needs a little bit of tweaking to
make clear where the other nut is. It took a while to find it and I ended up buying a similar nut at a hardware store. Other than that this is a great bike
rack. Easy to assemble and install. I like the built-in security chain lock too. It
is actually long enough to secure the two bikes together. The platform has a grooved area for the bike’s front tire for added stability. It also lighter than the Thule bike rack I was initially considering. We traveled from the Bay Area in California to South Lake Tahoe for the Americas Most Beatiful Bike Ride, the bike was very stable. My wife loves the looks and the ease of tilting the bike rack to open the tailgate area.
The etrailer customer service person, Stacey A, was awesome. The shipping notification and tracking was great too.
I have no qualms recommending this bike rack to my family and friends.
Thanks for all your help, Stacey A.


Very pleased with this heavy-duty bike rack. In October, (approx 10 months after purchase) we noticed that the metal tubes on the tire scoops were all fading from the matte black color to a bronze color. I contacted Kuat online and, as always, their customer service was very prompt and awesome. They immediately shipped me replacement parts at no charge. We have 3 other older Kuat bike racks in our immediate family currently being used. My son backed into a short concrete pole once, and Kuat still covered the damaged parts and replaced them at no charge. We are lifetime customers of Kuat because of our experience with them.

The only con for me personally is the weight of the bike rack when putting it on and taking it off my car. It is very heavy/solid. I may look at purchasing a lighter Kuat rack in the near future and give this one to a family member.


I purchased the Kuat to replace a very similar Thule rack.(shown in photo).
I was pairing it with the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk on the front of our trailer.
The Kuat was 7" closer to the trailer giving me the clearance I needed for the truck and the Kayaks on the truck rack. We traveled 6500 miles for 9 weeks and everything worked great. The Kuat works great on the back of our Jeep Rubicon as well.


One Year Later: GREAT bike rack. We loaded my wife's 60 lb. ebike on this rack and journeyed from NC to MO and back. We stopped every day and road a rail-to-trail. The rack was quick, easy to use and (with one additional self-ratcheting strap and a mondo lock) super secure. Thanks!!


I've tried different brands and styles of racks over the years and the Kuat NV 2.0 Base Hitch Bike Rack is the one rack to rule them all. I was a little concerned by lack of a rear wheel cradle, but bikes are held securely without scratches or paint rub common with most racks. After a year of near daily use, I'm confident my bike is staying where I put it (always double check you've secured it properly). My 2003 Jeep Wrangler required a short hitch extension to clear the rear mounted spare, but even with that it's bomb proof!


This bike rack is a beast! Took about 30 minutes to assemble, directions were straightforward and the materials are of the highest quality. Easily holds our Townie Electra (w/GeoOrbital electric wheels). The additional ramp (purchased with this order) makes loading the 48 pound bikes a breeze to load!


Absolutely bullet proof. The quality, durability of the Kuat NV 2.0 Base and ease of use will transport my bike (and others) for many years to come.'s customer service and speedy shipping is a definite plus.


High quality materials. Simple enough to assemble. All the tools you needs are included in the kit, and they are actually properly sized for the job at hand. Instructions are maybe an 8 out 7 - better than most but could do with a little more illustrations. Three suggestions, if I may. 1) When the early step says to turn the unit upside down, the front tire cradle keeps it from laying flat on the ground. This makes it difficult to install the long connecting bolts. You should suggest that the assembly be put up on blocks or to hang the cradle off the end of something (see my picture with the end hanging off of a deck walkway). This makes the whole thing lay flat to ease alignment if the connecting bolts. 2) For that same step, a trimetric view would me more helpful than the plan view. 3) when tightening the long bolts, care must be taken so that the Allen wrench doesn’t chip up the rack paint. I fixed this by wrapping the wrench with some painters tape (see pic). You might want to add this tip as it was obvious to me that Kuat tries to make a great set of instructions.

The rack itself operates beautifully. I expect years of solid service from this unit. Ps. The ramp accessory works great too.


Best bike rack we’ve ever had! Easy assembly, mounted to a Draw-Tite hitch(also purchased from etrailer) on a 2018 Honda Odyssey. Swings free to open hatch. SWEET! I would recommend this bike carrier.


Bottom Line, very good rack. It is heavy and bulky when it isn't on my car but overall it exceeds expectations. It is very convenient loading and unloading bicycles. Tilt down function is great for my hatchback. Sometimes there is a struggle to deconflict the bars and seats of opposing bikes but no more than a minor annoyance. I have traveled about 1000 miles at highway speeds without issues, hauling 2 Mountain Bikes. No bike damage or scraping.


The rack works good. Hold’s 2 Aventon Level no problem got the ramp because bikes are to heavy to pick up.


Very happy with the bike rack. We carry two Electric Bike Company, Model r's. Each bike weighs 50+ pounds. The rack is easy to use and securely holds the bikes. had the absolute best price and delivery timing.


Works great. Install was easy. My only question was - after everything is installed, and the security lock in place - it's kind of loose - the lock slides left and right when you make turns. Is it by design?

  • Can the Kuat NV # BA22B Be Used on Bikes With Front Fenders
    As long as the fender is tightly installed on the bike and the hook is attached to the fender as close as possible to the top tube of the bike, the # BA22B should carry the town bike you mentioned with no problem whatsoever. I spoke with one of my contacts at Kuat, who uses the very same rack to carry his wife's bike that has fenders, and he says it works very well. The inside of the hooks are padded, but you can place a towel or other piece of cloth between the hook and the fender if...

  • Can Tailgate of 2016 Chevy Colorado Open When Using Kuat NV Bike Rack?
    The answer is going to depend on how much room you have between the top of your 2015-2017 Chevy Colorado's trailer hitch and its tailgate. The Kuat NV # BA22B will be roughly 8 inches above the hitch receiver opening when the arms are folded down, so you would need to have more than that amount of space between the top of your hitch and when the tailgate is folded down. I've added links to video reviews of this bike rack for you to take a look at.

    The Kuat NV Base 2.0 part # BA22B would have plenty of clearance to fit past the spare of your 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser. It has a distance of 11-3/4 inches from it's hitch pin hole to the nearest portion of the rack when folded down.

  • Can Kuat NV Bike Rack Be Used in Front Hitch of Motorhome
    A Kuat NV 2.0 like the part # BA22B can be used in the front hitch of an RV so it will work for you. At the rear of an RV there's a long distance between the rear axle of the vehicle and the rear of it where the hitch is. This causes the ride quality to be much rougher due to the exaggerated movement of bumps. At the front of a motorhome is no different than a regular vehicle so any bike rack can be used there.

  • 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...

  • Is Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2-Bike Add-On Difficult to Install
    Adding or removing the 2-Bike Add-On # BA02B for the Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack # BA22B really isn't too difficult - it's almost like installing it into anther hitch to be honest. Attached is a review video where we go over a few things for the add-on section as well as what it looks like to install the part (jump to minute mark 2:40). Basically you'll remove the end cap on the Base, insert the Add-On, tighten up the Allen bolts, and then place the cap on the end of the Add-On.
