Rotating Arms with Ratcheting Wheel Hooks

Kuat NV22G ratcheeting wheel hooks

The NV 2.0 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 NV22G sliding wheel cradles with ratcheting strapsKuat NV22G sliding wheel cradles with ratcheting straps

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 Rear-Wheel Straps

Kuat NV22G sliding wheel cradles with 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 NV22G hitch tightening adjustment knob

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.


Built-In Repair Stand

Kuat NV22B built-in repair stand

The Trail Doc is 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 also be locked into place to prevent theft and includes a cap for the housing if you prefer to use the rack without it.


Kuat NV22B adjustable built-in stand

A spring-loaded clamp grabs your bike by the seat post or top tube. It has a soft, rubber coating that won't scratch your bike's paint. The rotating clamp arm lets you adjust the angle of your bike and the locking collar secures your bike at the desired height.


Note: The Trail Doc is shipped installed on the base rack. Simply remove it from the base rack, install the add-on, and install the repair stand on the add-on.


Tool-Free Installation with Anti-Rattle Device

Kuat NV22G 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 NV22G integrated cable lock

The NV 2.0 includes integrated cable locks that lets you secure your bikes to the rack. A 1/4" thick, braided steel cable extends from each wheel tray, threads through your bike's frame, and locks back onto itself.


Kuat NV22G integrated cable lock

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

I have had my Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches - Tilting - Metallic Black for a month now. Amazing engineering. Solid rack. I have four or five old (cheaper) racks and this is the best rack I have ever seen by far. Extremely happy with this. I will reserve comment on whether or not a bike rack should cost $xx.xx but it’s a great rack. Possible improvements: 1) The rack is just too heavy. With the amazing engineers that worked on this, knocking 10 lbs off the rack would be easy. I know it is one of the lighter ones available but it is still too heavy. The center rail is all steel and the heaviest part. The outer part of the swing arms are steel (inner part is aluminum). The arms have really nice bushings on the hinges. The whole thing is amazing, well-built, and well-engineered. IDEA 1: lightweight the center rail by using U-lube instead of square tube. Or just make holes through the top and bottom of he square rail. IDEA 2) The Aluminum platforms are amazing. But use less Al and more plastic. The ones for the back tire add significant weight. 2) Someone came up with a great idea for dealing with one aspect of the weight problem. One problem is that at 54 lbs. when you put it in the receiver it’s hard to align the hitch pin hole by yourself. So I kludged up a stop using a ring clamp and some plastic tubing. I was going to tap a hole in the center rail for a stop screw but then I could not adjust the depth for different vehicles. So I went with the ring clamp. When installing it (see photo) I noticed that someone already had a great idea and tapped a hole to add a stop. I assume there is an adjustable clip that is secured by the recessed screw. But I did not receive the clip. I just have a beautifully designed tapped hole and recessed screw with no way to use it. Probably an easy answer to this one but i didn't get a clip and didn't see this referenced in the instructions at all. 3) Back tire surface. It almost doesn’t matter where you ride the mountain bike, somewhere along the trial there is sandy, gravely surface that gets on your tires. I have gone in five ‘dirt’ trails and covered my tires with smooth mud thinking that I wasn’t going to hit sand. Then when I get back to the parking lot the mud collects the sandy gravel—either in the gravel parking lot or at the edge of the asphalt lot. Then I put the bike on the beautiful smooth aluminum carrier and scratch it. There should be an improvement to resurface the area where the back tire goes. It looks like there has been some weak attempt to provide a plastic coat but it doesn’t work. I am going to buy some rubberized truck-bed liner or spray rubberized spray rust proofer to refinish this. 4) Last possible improvement. The only people that should be buying this bike rack are people with high end mountain bikes. The reason for the platform carrier is to accommodate the odd frame geometry of mountain bikes and to protect the full suspension from dangling and getting air in the cylinders. If you have a full carbon road bike then just hang it on the back of your car with a $200 bike rack. And no one is going to carry $120 steel Walmart BLO’s with a $xx.xx platform carrier. They are going to strap them to the roof of their minivan. So you could even make this carry less weight capacity to make it lighter. And just tell people to put the 60 lb bike (like ebikes) closest to vehicle and lighter bikes in the back. EVERYONE has a lighter bike… either aluminum, carbon, or just a kids bike. This rack can carry 250 lbs of bikes (4 x 60+). The market for carrying 250lbs of bikes is nearly zero. delivery was perfect. Assembly was easy with two people; probably could do it with one. As you can tell, it is a real stretch to find anything wrong with this. But my minor comments are above.


Comments
After one year: Bike rack is amazing. my few concerns previously were largely due to my lack of understanding. I have the four bike rack but primarily use the two bike rack. The reason for the heavy steel is for four bikes it seem overkill for the two bikes but its really nice when carrying four. The tapped hole is not for a stop at all. it would be nice to have an adjustable stop to limit how far you put it into the receiver so the pin lines up. also, when I put the rack on alone I put the two bike rack on, stand it up, and then add on the four bike extension vs. trying to put the four bike one on alone. adding the four bike rack is very easy... four minutes. This rack is just amazing. we use it every week for mountain bikes but it also carries our road bikes and cyclocross bike really easy. And the bike length can be adjusted in seconds. our road bikes have a shorter wheel base and it adjusts super easy. we beat on it pretty good and the only thing we have broke is lock user error. One of the kids unlocked the lock and did not it back into the frame all the way until the magnet clipped it in. so the lock dragged down the road. this is absolutely worth the money.

The quality and ease of operation is beyond of what I expected. I have used other products to include Yakima's, this one is the way to go! It took me, reading instructions less than 30 minutes to put together the main part. I used the box as my helper. Put the addition together again with the help of the box in under 10 minutes. I was impressed with how easy it was to load the bikes and secure them. I was like it can't be this easy. HIGHLY recommend it, worth the investment!

You get what you pay for.... the Kuat NV 2.0 Hitch Bike Rack isn't cheap, but it is exceptional quality and looks great!! Kuat seemed to incorporate every detail you can imagine: it securely fits and tightens into the receiver so there is NO wobble, the rack folds down/away from our Expedition so we can access storage with the bikes loaded on the rack, the integrated cable/lock is very secure, the bike stand is a great feature to make adjustment, it is well built and should last for years. We love our Kuat NV 2.0 Hitch Bike Rack!

Extremely well made. Very sturdy. Fits all of our needs. Only draw back is uts weight when in the four bike set up and the fact that it's a big process to go from two bike to four bike versions so we always keep it in 4. Great company from a service side.

Review from a similar NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


Great service from etrailer and the rack arrived as expected. Fairly easy assembly. OK video on Kuat’s site, but didn’t cover the foot pedal. Really glad we got the 2” hitch. It tightened up and we’re impressed with the quality and the stability of the rack. We haven’t done a road test yet, but look forward to putting it to the test. We have a Ford F-150 and it works great. The bikes were fairly easy to load with the batteries out and two people. We do need the strap extenders for our RadMini Step Thru’s. The tires are too big for the ones that come with. Only one set of extenders came with the bike and one adapter for a smaller tire. It’s okay, but since it’s a two bike unit, would have been nice to have both extenders. Otherwise, we are really liking the look and stability.

I am very pleased with the Kuat NV 2.0 bike rack. It was tough to swallow the price tag. However, looking back after purchasing more expensive bikes, and traveling several thousand miles with no issues, I can attest to the quality and durability of this product. For you Jeepers out there, you may need to extend your receiver hitch for proper clearance, depending upon the size of your tires and bikes. Just a tip.

About the Kuat NV 2.0: Buy a Kuat NV 2.0!!! Then, get the 2 Bike Add-On to carry 4 bikes. This is hands-down THE BEST rack on the market. I chose this rack after researching THULE, Saris, Yakima, and many, many others. The Kuat NV 2.0 has a professional car quality finish, is ROCK SOLID so the bikes do not move at all, has built in locks, a built in mechanic stand, and never touches your bikes. Do your research and you will arrive at the same conclusion: THERE IS NO BETTER RACK ON THE MARKET!!!

Review from a similar NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


Rack arrived today. I will not lie, it is heavy and therefore cumbersome to assemble. Despite that, I was able to assemble and install it in just under one hour. I did this on my own, another person would have cut this time in half. The rack checks all the boxes of wants and needs. That same weight noted before makes it rock solid. The anti-rattle feature to tighten the hitch is wonderful. Handle/pedal to change from upright position to bike holding rack to tilt away from my Subaru 2010 Forester was incredibly simple and smooth. I was all set to buy the Thule T2 Pro XT 2 and a friend told me about this Kuat NV 2.0. I am so happy. I knew it was more expensive, but free shipping and price was discounted at checkout when I purchased it from etrailer.com. Great surprise. This rack is well thought out, has superb quality features, and I am convinced that I made the best choice. All things aside, it also really looks nice.

Review from a similar NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


Wow, I'm impressed. I use hitch Rack about 3 or 4 times a week. After 1 ride, I stopped at a convenience store for some coffee & a snacky. Store was busy so it took some time. I had 1 bike on the rack. When I came out I noticed that one arm of the rear most rack was bent. Somebody backed into the rack, of course they were long gone. I looked closely at the rack & the only damage was the 2 bolts that hold it together were bent inside the rack. 2 new bolts come tomorrow. That's good solid construction.

The Kuat rack is superb. Had to wait a short time because the racks are out of stock everywhere, but since I have done business with etrailer previously I felt they would do the best to make sure I got what I needed the fastest. They did not disappoint. I was kept abreast of my order status which I greatly appreciated. The rack arrived on the promised delivery day. Good products; great service - what more could you ask for!

WE have used the rack on several bike vacations all over the west. No problems with it whatsoever. It is good looking, strong and holds the e-bikes we carry on it very securely. Without a doubt- a real keeper.

Review from a similar NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


Assembly was not as difficult as I expected. After watching some videos, the instructions do make sense. I also used the box with some of the foam packing to support the frame because, as suggested, it easier to put together"upside down". Once it's together it seems very solid and well made. Installing on my 2017 Hyundai Tucson Eco was simple and easy to do. Putting the bike on the rack was even easier and will make impromptu bike rides no problem when I'm by myself. In the pictures the bike was on the outside rack because I was demonstrating it to my friend who thankfully assisted me with the hitch installation.


Comments
Thanks for pointing this out, Larry! Whenever you carry less bikes than the rack calls for, you should start loading your bikes closest to the vehicle and work your way out to avoid stress on the rack and your vehicle frame.

Review from a similar NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


Have used it on a 2015 Audi Q5 with an aftermarket Curt 2" hitch. LOVE it! We were looking for the longest tongue that we could find so that when stored upright, it wouldn't hit the bumper. With the advice of the etrailer phone rep...we got 4 place model which is what we ended up with..(we got the add-on) Avid mountain bikers that love this setup. The model is very solid with 4 bikes! Also like how you can adjust the front wheel cradle so that the bars won't rub on other bars/seats. Heavy when you lower the rack "loaded" to open hatchback, but that's what you'll deal with when going with a setup that doesn't touch the frame which is what we want and need. Much nicer than the Thule/Yakima options that other friends have. A lot better looking too!! It does slightly block the tail lights so added some reflectors for those "distracted drivers" ;-) Highly recommend and feel price is worth it.

This is one professional business. Great service and follow through. I ordered a Kuat bike carrier and it even happened to be on sale - welcome surprise. One other item I ordered and later decided I did not want, called to arrange a return. Again, no hassle and made it very easy to print a return shipping label and ship it. The lady who helped with the return was a joy to work with. Again a nice experience. Great line of products and in my earlier RVing days, wish I would have known about them. Happened to mention this place to a neighbor and they immediately commented they had purchased from them and also were impressed with their service. I normally don’t do reviews but felt they are worthy of these comments as deserve the recognition. Lastly, couldn’t be happier with the Kuat bike carrier. Total quality, great instructions for assembling and exactly what I wanted for our two new electric bikes.

Review from a similar NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


Fantastic bike rack!! After getting fed up with loading my bike up repeatedly in the back of my 2003 GMC Sierra pickup (with a hard top cover) I decided to purchase this kuat rack. I wish I would’ve sooner. Assembly was easy and straight forward however I would use a magnetic parts bowl if I had it to do over. Kuat doesn’t included any extra nuts so I had to contact them to get another after I dropped and lost one (they were very polite and shipped one right away.) As far as function goes this rack is really easy to use. Just slide it into the receiver and put the lock pin it. Just like in the video you then tighten the knob at the back to secure the hitch so there is no movement. Load your bikes up and secure them and you’re ready to go. I did utilize the retractable cable locks after my ride when stopping to eat and they are very easy to use. No worries at all about a stolen bike. And the tilting feature is great too. It does allows you to access your truck bed with the tailgate down just as in the video. As an added bonus this rack fits perfect in my standard size truck bed even with the hard top cover closed (my truck is too long to fit in the garage with the rack folded up installed in the hitch.) Michael H. was outstanding providing schematic drawings with the dimensions so I would know this before my purchase (they’re on the Q&A page.) The free shipping was very fast so that made the purchase even better. I will definitely be a repeat customer as eTrailer is the one of the best companies out there with great customer service and timely communication. Great job!!

This bike rack has worked well for our family of 4. It allows us to safely and securely carry all 4 bikes through the mountains of Colorado with our Hallmark Milner truck camper. Strong and durable rack that barely moves when driving. etrailer's customer service was outstanding. The rack was initially delayed and after one phone call to check status a warehouse manager quickly solved a minor issue and got the rack shipped. etrailer was fantastic in managing this transaction with extremely limited staffing. etrailer is the first place I check for anything recreation as I've never had anything but stellar service.

I am totally in love with this rack. It works exceptionally well--easy to load and unload my bikes and they feel stable. I replaced a 5 bike, Thule hanging style with this rack. My absolute favorite thing about the rack is that the rear door of my 2017 MDX can open and close with the 2-bike rack in place (not loaded, folded up toward the car). This is a total game changer. I have 3 small kids and I love that I no longer have to battle a bike rack every time I need access to the back of my car.

  • Does Yakima FourTimer 4 Bike Platform Rack # Y02469 Fit Womens Bikes
    Yes the Yakima FourTimer part # Y02469 will work great with the frame styles of the Townie bikes that you have! The hook of the rack will easily secure to the bike frame. I attached a review video for more info on this rack as well.

  • Recommended Hitch For NV 2.0 Bike Rack On A 2016 Subaru Outback
    If you're wanting to use the NV 2.0 # NV22B-NA22B it would be best to get a heavier duty hitch like this class III # e98847 on your 2016 Subaru Outback. This will be plenty strong to hold the NV 2.0. I've included an installation video for the hitch along with another of Ryan using the NV 2.0!

  • Is There 1-1/4 inch to 2 inch Hitch Adapter that Fits 4 Bike Kuat NV
    The current 4-bike versions of the Kuat NV like the # NV22B-NA22B only fit the 2 inch hitch size. There isn't a version that would have a 1-1/4 inch shank that the adapter part # D101 would fit.

  • Can the Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Platform Rack Be Used On a Motorhome
    The Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Platform Racks like part # NV22G-NA22G are not rated for use on motorhomes since the ride is rougher back there. Instead, I'd recommend the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4 Bike Platform Rack part # HR1400Z which is a similar bike rack that is rated for use on a motorhome. In regards to the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 4-Bike Platform Rack part # BA22B-BA02B and part # NV22B-NA22B, the difference is indeed the bike repair stand.

  • Recommended 4-Bike Rack for a 2020 Ford Explorer and 2020 Subaru Forester
    Thank you for all of the info! I definitely can help you with the best bike rack option for your application, however first thing is first. In order to be able to use all 4 bike positions you need at least a Class II trailer hitch. Since your 2020 Subaru Forester is currently only equipped with a Class I, I recommend upgrading it to the Class III Curt # C13409 so that you can carry up to 4 bikes. With that being said, I highly recommend going with the Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Platform Rack #...

  • Is There a 4-Bike Rack With Compatible Bike Ramp
    There is a 4-bike rack that is compatible with a ramp, though the Saris SuperClamp EX 4-Bike Platform Rack # SA4026F does not have an available ramp for use. Instead, the 4-bike rack that does have a ramp and is similar to the SuperClamp is from Kuat: - Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Platform Rack - Black # NV22B-NA22B or Gray # NV22G-NA22G - Access Ramp for Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack # ANVBRB Like the SuperClamp, the NV 2.0 is a wheel-mounted rack so it won't make any contact with your bike's frame,...

  • Saris SuperClamp EX 4 VS. Kuat NV 2.0
    I've used the Saris SuperClamp EX 4 # SA4026F and it's not my first choice, but it still is a good rack. If you're wanting a rack that I would choose over the Saris, I would go with the Kuat NV 2.0 # BA22B-BA02B. I like the way it looks more than the Saris option but the Kuat also has different colors. There is gray # NV22G-NA22G and metallic black # NV22B-NA22B. It has all the features that the Saris has but gives color options and overall is a better looking rack. Both are great options...

  • 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.

  • Can I Use A Swing Away System With A Shank Adapter Or With A 1-1/4 Accessory?
    To get what you want, you will need to use this version of the Kuat NV 2.0 # BA22B because it has a 2" shank. The Kuat Pivot # PVD20B and all of the other swing away systems like the Yakima BackSwing # Y02483 are designed for use with a 2" hitch and only 2" accessories. It is not recommended to use any swing away system with a shank adapter or any 1-1/4" accessory. Since you have a van, you have plenty of room for 4 passangers. Since the Kuat Pivot can be used to haul 4 bikes, you could...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Toyota RAV4 for a Bike Rack
    I recommend installing the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13406 on your 2015 Toyota RAV4 because this features a hidden crosstube so that you have a really clean look with only the receiver showing, plus it has a really high-quality build. This will allow you to install ant bike rack that is compatible with a 2" hitch receiver. The (discontinued) Prorack PR8062404 will work as well as any Kuat bike rack with a 2" shank (see attached) like the Kuat NV 2.0 # NV22B-NA22B. I recommend going with a...

  • Best Bike Rack for Four Bikes Money Can Buy
    The best bike rack we have for four bikes is the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 4-Bike Platform Rack which is offered in metallic black part # NV22B-NA22B, gunmetal gray part # NV22G-NA22G, and matte black part # BA22B-BA02B. This is a wheel mount bike rack that will work with pretty much any bike that does not have fenders. It has all the bells/whistles and exceptionally good looks. I have attached a similar test course video for you. However, it is important to note that the test course is designed...

  • Comparing Weight of Inno Tire Hold 4 Bike Platform Rack and Saris MTR 4 Bike Platform Rack
    The Inno Tire Hold 4 Bike Platform Rack part # INH142 is listed as having a carrier weight of 118 lbs which is the full weight of the carrier without packaging. The Inno Tire Hold 4 Bike Platform Rack is very durable and well made but with this comes a heavy rack. The Saris MTR 4 Bike Platform Rack part # SA4032-34 weighs around 110 lbs, each two bike section is about 55 lbs. That said, you won't have to lift the entire weight of the carrier to get it onto the vehicle as it can be done...

  • How Difficult Is It To Install The Draw-Tite 76288 On A 2021 BMW X5?
    Though there is no drilling required for the installation of the Draw-Tite # 76288 on your 2021 BMW X5, it will be one of the more difficult hitches to install. The hitch itself will weigh right at 40 pounds, so it isn't overly heavy, especially if you have a helping hand. The difficult part has to do with what will need to be removed in order to get the hitch in place, and what will then need to be trimmed to reinstall everything. With that being said, the hitches that are available for...

  • Will the Hollywood Racks Rack Valet # HRRV-1 Hold the Kuat NV 2.0
    Great questions! When I first saw the Hollywood Racks Rack Valet Rolling Storage Cart # HRRV-1 I had the same reaction, but when you see a bike rack installed it makes sense because the weight of the bike rack will actually be more towards the center due to the length of the shank. I attached a picture of the Hollywood Racks TRS # HR3000 installed on the Valet for you to check out. When folded up this sits at a similar spot to your Kuat NV 2.0 # NV22B-NA22B (Metallic Black ) or # NV22G-NA22G...

    I recommend using the Yakima On-Ramp Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # Y36FR, which can carry bikes up to 66-lbs each and has a built in ramp to make loading the bikes a breeze. This rack fits in 2" hitch receivers like the one on your 2015 Nissan Murano. To accommodate your 4" wide tires you'll also need the Fat Tire Straps for Yakima OnRamp Bike Rack # Y23FR and this rack also comes with locks for the rack and the bikes, so everything will always be secured....

  • Options for Carrying Multiple Bikes with a 2016 Mini Countryman
    Although the M7 Speed trailer hitches # 327-60-160200 and # 327-60-160201 for your 2016 Mini Countryman are a great option that allows you to retain the factory look of your vehicle, the max tongue weight (TW) rating they have is 150 lbs and that is if the overhang distance of the trailer hitch is 12". As the overhang increases the max TW decreases. This is important to note because both the Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Rack # NV22G-NA22G (Gray) and # NV22B-NA22B (Black) as well as the Base Model...
