Removable Add-On


The Piston Pro carries 3 bikes, however the front position can be easily removed so there's less of a load on you and your vehicle if only 2 people are going riding. When it's not needed, simply remove the front section with the included tool and throw it in your trunk or leave it at home. A 2-bike add-on is also available, if you want to convert the rack into a 4-bike carrier.


Pivoting Arms with Hydro-Pneumatic Struts and Adjustable Bridges

Kuat Piston Pro X ratcheting hooks

The Piston Pro X has arms with hydro-pneumatic struts that deploy automatically by simply tapping the release levers, so you can easily load your bikes with both hands. They operate like the gas struts on your SUV that lift and support the rear hatch. The struts have a Kashima coating that keeps friction low, so they'll always open smoothly and in a controlled manner, even when exposed to water, mud, and road grime.


Kuat Piston Pro X ratcheting hooks

To load your bikes, tap the levers to deploy the hydro-pneumatic arms, set your bikes on the trays, and rotate the arms up over the wheels. Ratchets hold the arms in place, so once you squeeze the arms against the wheels there's nothing left to do. When you're ready to unload your bikes, tap the levers to release the arms - it's that simple.


Kuat Piston Pro X ratcheting hooks

The U-shaped arms have bridges that secure your bikes firmly by the wheel, so they won't scratch or scuff the bike's frame. Each arm has labelled settings for its bridge - 20", 24", 26", 27.5" and 29" tires. Just pinch the spring-loaded levers on each bridge and slide it to the corresponding tire size for each bike - no tools required.


Grooved Wheel Trays

Kuat Piston Pro X front wheel cradles

The Piston Pro X doesn't have cradles for the wheels like most platform-style bike racks. Instead, it has wheel trays that allow you to position your bikes on the rack exactly where you want them, not where the cradles dictate you place them. This helps prevent your handlebars and other bike parts from bumping into each other. Additionally, the trays have grooves in the tracks that accommodate narrow 18c road bike tires up to 5.0" fat bike tires.


Spring-Loaded Hand and Foot Pedal for Tilting and Folding

Kuat Piston Pro X Complete SecurityKuat Piston Pro X Installation

The rack tilts down with your bikes loaded. So, whether you're at the trail or the grocery store, you don't have to remove your bikes to access your cargo area. It also folds up when not in use. This leaves a smaller footprint, so you can keep the rack on your vehicle to park in your garage. And if you want to remove it, it doesn't take up as much space to store it.


Kuat Piston Pro X rear wheel cradle

The spring-loaded hand and foot pedal is easily accessible when the rack is tilted up. When you're ready to load your bikes, simply step on the pedal and lower the rack with both hands. To tilt the rack with bikes loaded, reach under your front bike and pull up on the pedal with your hand. No more crawling through your bikes or squeezing between the rack and the vehicle to hit the tilt release lever. To return it to the upright position, pull up on the lever and raise the rack until it clicks into position.


Built-In Brake Lights and Turn Signals

Kuat Piston Pro X Complete SecurityKuat Piston Pro X Installation

To keep you visible and safe, the Piston Pro X has built-in LED brake lights and turn signals. The lights are powered via the built-in wiring harness that plugs into your vehicle's existing 4-way connector. The lights are visible whether the rack is in use or in the stowed position.


Easy Installation

Kuat Piston Pro X Installation

The rack is easy to install. Just slide the shank into your hitch and use the included security tool to tighten the flatlock cam. As you tighten the cam, an anti-rattle wedge is deployed inside the shank to help take play out of the hitch connection.


Kuat Piston Pro X Complete Security

The security tool has a hollow-point hex indentation, so it can only be used with the Piston Pro X. This helps keep the rack secure on your vehicle. When you're done using it, simply lock it in place in the compartment at the front of the rack.


Complete Security for Bikes and Rack

Kuat Piston Pro X integrated cable lockKuat Piston Pro X hitch lock

A cable lock is included to secure your bikes to the rack. The 12-mm thick, braided steel cable threads through your bike's frames, and locks back into the rack. The cable has a soft rubber cover that won't scratch or scuff your bikes' paint. A stainless steel hitch lock is also included to secure the rack to your vehicle.


Available Accessories

Kuat Piston Pro X Ramp

An aluminum ramp (sold separately) lets you roll your heavy e-bikes on and off the rack - no heavy lifting required. The ramp telescopes to ensure it touches the ground so you don't have to lift your bike at all. It can also be used to decrease the angle of approach to make loading even easier.


Kuat Piston Pro X Ramp

A hook-and-loop strap kit (sold separately) lets you carry bikes with fenders. The Fender Kit Only setting on each arm indicates where to place the straps so they don't make contact with your bike's fenders.

Been using Kuat NV for several years. Decided to upgrade to the new PP. Setup was super easy, done in 15 minutes. As typical with Kuat, the build quality and finish are excellent.

See what our Experts say about this Kuat Hitch Bike Racks

  • Can the Swagman Original RV Bike Rack Be Used to Carry E-Bikes
    No, I do not recommend using the Swagman Original RV Bike Rack # S64152-2 for carrying e-bikes. While the Swagman Original RV Bike Rack # S64152-2 has a total weight capacity of 100 lbs. it can only carry 35 lbs. per bike. E-bikes all typically weigh well over 35 lbs. Instead you would want to use a bike rack like the Saris Freedom Bike Rack # SA4412B which can handle up to 60 lbs. per bike. Or for a 3 bike option there is the Kuat Piston Pro X Bike Rack for 3 Bikes # KU95VR which can...

  • Do You Have to Have 4-Way to Use Kuat Piston Pro X Bike Rack
    Good question, and it is not a necessity for your car to have a 4-way flat trailer connector in order to use the Kuat Piston Pro X bike racks. The 4-way connector that plugs in between the bike rack and the 4-way on your car (if you had one) comes separately in a parts bag, so it is not actually attached to the rack. I have added a photo for you which shows where you'd plug it in so you can see it is not connected to the rack. So you definitely do not have to use a 4-way with the rack...

  • Can Kuat Piston Pro X Bike Rack Be Used with Kuat Pivot 2 Swing Away for ProMaster
    Yes, the Kuat Piston Pro X Bike Rack for 3 Bikes # KU95VR can definitely be used with the Kuat Pivot 2 Swing Away # PVP20B on your Ram ProMaster. The Pivot 2 was actually designed with the ProMaster in mind so this setup will work great together.

  • How Many Bikes Can E-Bike Rack for 5th Wheel Application Carry
    I really wish there was a great solution but nothing we have works mainly because of the number of bikes. E-bike racks are primarily 2 bike racks and when you have to limit them to 5th wheel applications that makes it really hard. If for some reason you would only carry 2 e-bikes we have the Hollywood Racks RV Rider part # HLY64FR which is 5th wheel rated and has the weight capacity needed.

  • Recommended Bike Rack for 3 E-Bikes
    I do have an option for you but carrying three e-bikes is a tall order, the best we can do is the Kuat Piston Pro X Bike Rack for 3 Bikes part # KU95VR which has a 50 lb per bike weight capacity so you'll still need to find a way to get the weight of the bikes down, preferably by removing the battery. That said, the rack weighs 86 lbs and with three 50 lb bikes you could very well be maxing out the hitch so you need to make sure this is rated appropriately as well.

  • Recommendations for Transporting 3 Bikes with a 2011 Honda Fit Sport with a Spoiler
    I have a solution for you that will allow you to carry bikes with your 2011 Honda Fit Sport, but the fact that you have spoiler on your vehicle prevents any of the trunk mounted bike racks from fitting your vehicle. You will need to install an EcoHitch Trailer Hitch # 306-X7286. I attached a link to installation instructions for you to check out for this product. This hitch has a 2" opening which will allow you to choose from many compatible racks like the Kuat Piston Pro X Bike Rack...
