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 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.


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.


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

I have ordered from etrailer before and have been very happy with the service and products. The customer service staff stayed in contact with me when I had questions and when my order arrived, The Kuat NV 2.02 was a great price when compared to all other on-line stores. We are very happy with the high quality and function of the Kuat NV 2.0 bike rack. Thank you!

Very impressed with the ease of installation, features and function of the KUAT NV 2.0 hitch-mount bike rack. Assembly instructions are well done and assembly took about 30 minutes after reading instructions and watching a video. Really like the dedicated 2" square bar that goes into the hitch receiver instead of a smaller 1.25" bar with a 2" adaptor. Makes for a more stable and very solid installation, especially with KUAT's anti-rattle device. The hitch mount really locks down tight. Also going to like the built in trail doc bike stand for doing maintenance and repairs. Etrailer's product video was very helpful when deciding on purchasing this bike rack.


Comments
We use this rack 2-3 times per week and it has functioned flawlessly. Great design makes it very simple and quick to load and unload. Very stable on rough gravel roads. We add a front tire strap when off-roading for extra security.

Awesome bike rack. This solid rack is a must for hauling expensive and heavier e bikes .

I love this rack! Fits all my bikes and has adjustments so different combos of bikes fit handlebars over seats etc. only thing is change is, I use padding under the rear tire strap as the plastic step scratches up my rims.

What an awesome rack. The modular aspect of it is fantastic. Sometimes it’s just my and my wife, no need for a 4 bike carrier. Other times, another couple may want to go with us, not a problem, add on the extension to make it a four bike rack. I’ve never timed it, but I don’t think it takes more than 15 minutes to add the extension. The hitch tension wheel (sorry, don’t recall what KUAT calls it) is great. Pin the hitch, hand tighten the wheel and you’ll think that the rack was part of your vehicle. No swaying or bouncing around. The cradle and hook system is quite secure, I’ve never felt unsure about it. The built in cable locks are nice if you are overnighting at a hotel, great peace of mind that your bikes will still be there in the morning. The drop mechanism is spot on, the hatch clears when you drop it down, if only by a smidge causing my wife to gasp once or twice that her paint would get scratched by a handle bar. Naturally, lifting the rack back up with 4 bikes loaded on it can be a chore but the rack never claimed to defy the laws of physics. The only downsides: the rack is too heavy and awkward to handle with the extension. If you have the extension on and loaded, there is a lot of weight back there. This rack is for my wife’s Expedition, no small vehicle, and if I change lanes too quickly, it will definitely give you some sway. I could only imagine what it would feel like in a smaller vehicle. Obviously, with the extension on, it adds quite a bit of length to your vehicle. However the last 2 points are easily managed simply by remembering the bike rack is on there.

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!!

We have been using a Yakima rack for about 8 years and 40,000 miles. This last winter it failed and we began looking for a replacement. The Kuat is top shelf. Easy to assemble, I had my 4 year old granddaughter hold while I ran the bolts. The whole unit is much more stable the it's predecessor. Rock solid once mounted on the Jeep. etrailer service was super. Price was great and everything was delivered on time as expected.

Great rack and was fairly easy to install. My only gripe is that it took almost 4 months to get it. Shipping was fast and etrailer did a good job to update backlog status on the website. Good price point for a high quality rack. I would have given it 5 stars but I was disappointed on how Kuat handled my inquiry regarding the delay.

i did not know how this rack would work with my e-bikes. After watching the on-line videos with my car year and model, I was confident that this would work. The rack was cheaper than I thought it would be, arrived a day earlier than it was supposed to, and fit my bike/car combo like a glove. I am a very pleased customer.

The Kuat NV 2.0 bike hitch and extension hitch have been great products for our family. We use it for the regular hitch for quick two bike trips to the beach and the extension when the entire family is taking a ride or we’re heading out on a family road trip. These hitch racks are a safe secure way to transport bikes.

Once assembled, this bike rack appears very sturdy and solidly built. A few assembly hints for you: One person can do this, but 4 hands are better when installing the trays. Note that there are openings on either side of the trays shaped to accept the nut - and then insert the tray bolts into the round cavities on opposite side. I found that adding a strong box to a table made a good work surface. The rack will be used to transport bikes on an 800 mile ride between homes, and I am looking forward to not having bikes swaying around like on my hanging hitch.

Rock solid. Well packaged upon arrival. Instructions clear and easy to follow. Rack is heavy so you need a large flat bench or table to assist in assembly and another pair of hands or leveling blocks (I used some of the packaging foam). Immediately took a 700 mile road trip with two bikes. No rattling or any movement at 80+ mph interstates and curvy mountain roads. Worth the extra money versus other name racks.

This is our 2nd Kuat NV rack...they are awesome. Our 1st is an 1st generation and it still looks and works great.

Product is outstanding, but etrailer's quick shipping and customer service is even better. Showed up two days sooner than the selected shipping method and shipped out less than 12 hours after I ordered it. Really impressive work.

Ask the Experts about this Kuat Hitch Bike Racks

  • Can Kuat NV Bike Rack be Used with 2019 Honda Accord
    Kuat actually makes a version of their Kuat NV 2.0 that fits Class I 1-1/4 inch hitches like the hitches that fit your 2019 Honda Accord such as the Draw Tite # 24972. For that you'd just need the # NV12B and you'd be set! The reason Class III hitches aren't available for your vehicle is that Class III hitches are normally only used on higher capacity vehicles like trucks and SUVs. I attached a review video for the Kuat for you to check out as well.

  • Bike Rack Similar to Kuat NV that Can Be Used at Rear of Motorhome
    I have a similar solution but the Kuat NV # NV22B can't be used at the rear of motorhomes as they have a much longer distance from rear axle to the rear of the vehicle which makes the ride quality much rougher which means a bike rack reinforced for that would be needed. The Thule T2 XTR part # TH83JV is a very similar option that is motorhome approved and would be your best option. I attached a review video for this rack for more info as well.

  • Height Above Hitch for Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack
    I added a cutout from Kuat showing the dimensions of the height of the Kuat NV 2.0 bike rack. According to this it is 8-3/8" from the center of the shank to the bottom of the wheel tray, which will give you plenty of room away from the exhaust on your Porsche Cayenne. The NV 2.0 is available in your choice of colors as well: - Gunmetal Gray: Kuat NV 2.0 2-Bike Rack # NV22G - Black: Kuat NV 2.0 2-Bike Rack # NV22B This rack fits tires up to 3" wide but can fit tires up to 4.8"...

  • Best Bike Rack for Carbon Fiber Frame Bikes
    The best bike rack option we have for expensive carbon fiber frame bikes is the Kuat NV 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack part # NV22B for 2" or part # NV12B for 1-1/4". The NV holds the bikes by the wheels so there will be no chance for damage to the frame and it comes with locks for both the bike rack and bikes so there will be a decreased chance of theft. It works with tire sizes up to 3" so there will be no problems here either and it comes with a really nice finish.

These have a weight capacity of 60 lbs per bike and the wheel cradles can hold tires up to 4.8 inches! This would be perfect for your fat tire ebikes! The rack weighs about 52lbs.

  • Will Swagman Bike Cover Fit Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack
    The Swagman Bike Cover for RVs # S24FR will definitely fit the Kuat NV 2.0 2-Bike Rack # NV22B or # NV22G. That said, it is not designed for use on passenger vehicles like your 2019 Toyota Highlander (while they are moving), and is only for use on RVs. The reason for that is the wind will damage the cover if it's used on a passenger vehicle; this won't happen on an RV because the large rear of an RV blocks direct wind impact.

    I do have an option for you but there isn't a great way to secure a bike, let alone multiple e-bikes to a cargo basket. In order to safely and securely haul two e-bikes you will need to use a traditional bike rack. For this, I recommend the Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack for 2 Bikes part # NV22B.

  • Does the Kuat NV 2.0 Work with Bikes with Fenders?
    I have a solution for you. Here at Etrailer, we strongly discourage using wheel-mounted bike racks like the Kuat NV 2.0 # NV22B for bikes with fenders. Mounting wheels with fenders can cause the fenders to crack or become damaged, especially with the added bumps and torque from your vehicle when it is in motion. For a solution that completely avoids any potential for damage, I recommend the Swagman Dispatch Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # S44FR. Since the Dispatch...

  • What Hitch Extender Do I Need for My 2017 Jeep Wrangler?
    The reason why it is important to consider whether you need a hitch extender adapter on your 2017 Jeep Wrangler is to make sure that any hitch-mounted accessories will not interfere with the rear spare tire. For most hitch-mounted accessories, we include the dimensions of the closest part of the accessory from the center pin hole of the hitch.

    You really can't beat the Kuat NV 2.0 bike rack # NV22B with the ramp # ANVBRB for a super easy and high quality bike rack setup.

The Kuat Pivot Swing Away Hitch Extender part PV20B is no longer available but you could still use the Kuat NV 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack part # NV22B with the Yakima BackSwing Swing Away...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for Carrying 2 Bikes with a 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon
    For a trailer hitch I recommend the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver # E98847 because it has the most bumper clearance and comes with a matte black finish that does a better job of hiding scratches and dings over the glossy black options. Trailer hitches are used for both trailers and accessories like a bike rack so there is no difference in the installation. If you'd like one with a hidden crossbeam (for a cleaner installed look) then I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer...

    Yes, you can use the Kuat 2-Bike Add-On # NA22B with the Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Platform Rack # NV22B. I have added links to some video reviews for the bike rack and add-on for you to check out.

  • Recommended Hidden Hitch for a Bike Rack on a 2020 Subaru Outback Wagon
    I would be happy to help you choose a trailer hitch so you can keep using your Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack # NV22B or # NV22G on your 2020 Subaru Outback Wagon. Although the 3 hitches you mentioned to feature the hidden crosstube design, the Stealth Hitches option # 391SUOB20 is a completely different animal so I'll start off by comparing the Curt # CU89FR and EcoHitch # EH34FR options first. The Curt and EcoHitch and essentially the same thing with the main different being price and the...

  • Best Bike Rack Hitch for 2018 Lexus NX 300H
    For your 2018 Lexus NX 300h I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13337 class 3 hitch. This hitch will allow you to be able to carry more accessories and handle the weight better when loading 4 bikes. The only 4 bike racks that use a 1-1/4" receiver are hanging racks. The 2" receiver is what you will need for your Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack # NV22G (Gunmetal Gray), # BA22B (Matte Black), or # NV22B (Metallic Black). The 2" racks are the only racks that are able to accommodate the...

  • Why Isnt My Kuat Bike Rack Rated for Flat Tow Use?
    The Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Racks # BA22B and # NV22B are only rated for passenger vehicles like cars, trucks, suvs, or vans. The reason for this is that there is extra vibration and road stress on the back of RVs, motorhomes, travel trailers, and even flat-towed vehicles. There's also more movement the further back you go which also applies to a towed vehicle. With proper weight distribution systems and tow bars and flat-towing on all for wheels, I personally believe that extra movement is...

  • Kuat Bike Rack for 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon
    Yes the Kuat NV 2.0 line of bike racks fits your 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon's 2" hitch including the NV 2.0 Base # BA22B. The 2 bike add on # BA02B converts this to a 4-bike bike rack if you decide later you would like more capacity. The base is very similar to the NV 2.0. The main difference is the Base does not have the built in repair stand, which can be added # TDKB and the matte black finish is different compared to the glossy finish of the NV 2.0. The Kuat NV 2.0 # NV22G and the...
