Kuat NV22G loaded on vehicle

The Kuat NV platform-style rack lets you transport 2 bikes of almost any size, shape, or frame style. Ratcheting wheel hooks and sliding wheel straps hold your bikes with no frame contact. The rack tilts with bikes loaded for cargo area access and it folds up for storage. The aluminum rack has an integrated work stand for on-the-go repairs, it installs without tools, and it includes locks to secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle.

Adjustable Arms with Ratcheting Wheel Hooks

Kuat NV22G ratcheeting wheel hooks

The NV has ratcheting hooks that grab your bikes firmly by the front wheels - not the frames. These hooks allow you to rapidly load and unload your bikes, and they won't scratch or scuff your bike paint. Each hook adjusts in 2-mm increments to ensure a snug fit over your wheel, and it releases with the push of a button.

The wheel hooks are mounted on arms that pivot nearly 180 degrees from left to right. This makes it easier to load when compared with a rack that has the hooks mounted on a central post. To load simply set your bike in the wheel cradles, rotate the arms up over the wheels, and press the hooks down over the wheels until snug.

Extra-Wide Front Wheel Cradles

Kuat NV22G sliding wheel cradles with ratcheting strapsKuat NV22G sliding wheel cradles with ratcheting straps

The front wheel cradles are extra-wide to accommodate fat bike wheels. They can be also adjusted to 3 positions to fit your 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

The NV 2.0 has ratcheting rear-wheel straps that slide along the wheel trays to accommodate bikes of different lengths. A quick-release button on each strap buckle makes it easy to free the rear wheel to remove your bikes. An extender strap is included for use with 1 fat bike. Additional extender straps (APBK - sold separately) are available if you have more than 1 fat bike.

Folding and Tilting Design

Kuat NV22G hitch tightening adjustment knob

The NV has a lever on the base that is easily accessible even with your bikes loaded. No more crawling through bikes or squeezing between the rack and the vehicle to hit the tilt release lever.

Kuat NV22B tilting and folding design

The rack tilts down - with or without bikes loaded - so you can access your vehicle's rear cargo area.

Kuat NV22G tilting and folding design

When the rack is unloaded you can pull the top of the lever with your hand to fold it up for storage. This makes it easier to park in small lots at the trail head or in cramped parking garages, and it keeps the rack out of the way of other vehicles and riders.

Built-In Repair Stand

Kuat NV22B built-in repair stand

The Trail Doc is a handy, built-in bike repair and maintenance stand that attaches to the front of the rack. It grabs your bike by the seat post or top tube and lets you position your bike as needed for adjustments and on-the-go repairs. It attaches to the rack with 4 hex-head bolts. It can 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

You can reposition your bike on the Trail Doc. Easy-to-use pressure clamps let you raise or lower the stand, rotate it on its base, and rotate the clamp arm. And the TPE padding on the clamp protects your bike's frame and finish.

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.

Video Transcript for Kuat Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Subaru Outback wagon we're taking a look at the Kuat NV 2.0. This is a two bike platform style rack, this has been designed for use in two inch by two inch hitches. The part number on it NV22G. Now there are several options available in colors and sizes for the NV, this is the gunmetal gray and orange, we also have it in the metallic black, two bike like what we have here or four bike. For those of you with the inch and a quarter hitches we have it available in the gunmetal gray and orange and metallic black limited to the two bike version only.Now the biggest benefit we get out of the envy here is gonna be the access that we can gain into the rear of the vehicle. Some platform style racks don't have quite this much tilt feature which a lot of times run into interference as we're opening our door but you can see we've got plenty of clearance here with the Subaru, allows us to get anything in or out of the back that we might want.

Now if we lift up here in the rear, wait until you hear it click, that's gonna be right back into position, ready to head down the road. Something else you might find pretty neat, it's gonna be a bike repair arm. This is designed to go all the way down to half inch tubing and on up to like the larger three inch tubing, gives you a good way to grip your bike if you need to maintain it or work on it.Now holding the bike in place will use a front wheel hook right up here, this you'll position just in front of your brake component so you don't want them resting on it, but as close to it as possible. At the rear it's gonna use a cam buckle style strap, you push that in it allows us to take that out. You can see we've got a good length on that, this rack's designed to accommodate bike tires up to 4.8 inches.

It's also gonna work with different wheel bases, you can see how this will slide in and out for you so we can go all the way up to 48 inches there.Now to remove the front wheel hook it's pretty easy, almost like a pistol grip. Just gonna push in on that lever there with your thump, allow that to come up, move that down and out of the way, and our bike's gonna come off very easily, definitely easier than what we see out of some of the hanging style racks. The front wheel cradle itself does have accommodations you can see here for the road bike tires like what we had on there and it's gonna stagger out for those larger sized tires.Let's go over a few measurements just so you have a good idea of what kind of changes we're gonna have on the Subaru and the two bike version that we've got here. Looks like we're gonna add it's about 29 and a half inches, this being our furthest back point. At its closest point to the rear of the vehicle got about five and a half inches.

Then ground clearance here at the back it's gonna be about 21 to the bottom.Now we do have the option of tilting this up closer to the rear of the vehicle as well, same lever that we used before allows that to rotate and lock in position. That's typically where your repair rack is gonna come in handy in this position. A couple more measurements here just so you have an idea. Looks like to the end of our tensioning knob you've got about 11 and a half inches. You can see the rack does come in pretty close to the rear of the vehicle in a couple spots here, looks like about an inch and a half is gonna be the closest but Kuat has a very good anti-rattle system, you can see there's not really any movement or play, there's no way that rack's gonna actually come up and make contact with the rear of the vehicle.You have a straight shank here on the bottom so the ground clearance is gonna be the same as whatever the bottom of your hitch is at the inside of the receiver tube.

Here's our knob for that anti-rattle device, you can see we can loosen that up. You can see the more we do the more movement and play that we have in the rack. We tighten down so we can get rid of all of that. I like to kind of shake the rack a little bit just to make sure you get it all out of the way there. Just like that.We've got all the measurements that we need for our test fit now let's head out and see how the Kuat NV 2.0 performed when they had it on the test course. Speaker 2: First we'll take it onto our slalom course, this will show you the side to side action such as making turns or evasive maneuvers. Now we're at the alternating speed bumps, this will show you how it looks driving on uneven pavement or potholes. Finally we're at the solid speed bumps which simulates going into your driveway or parking lots.

Showed up fast and was easy to assemble. Rock solid product. No wiggle or chatter once installed. 27.5+ MTB fits perfect. 510512

Great rack! Works perfect, I have two of them 504805

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!! 486543

I am very impressed with the quality and it was very easy to put together. Etrailer was awesome and very prompt shipment. 598947

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. 745844

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. 703914

- NV22B

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. 698851

Great product. Well built. I would recommend to a friend. 661688

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. 653206

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. 636131

This is our 2nd Kuat NV rack...they are awesome. Our 1st is an 1st generation and it still looks and works great. A lot of friends who used a roof system have switched over to the Kuat after seeing all the benefits, quick (no wheel removal), no mud on energy drinks spilled on roof, aerodynamic (all tucked behind Car). 568823

I have been looking for a deal on this bike rack and found one at etrailer. This is probably the best bike rack money can buy. Ordering from etrailer is quick and easy. The bonus is extremely fast shipping. Order from etrailer, you will not be disappointed. 548643

Best bike rack I’ve owned...a little pricey but you get what you pay for...quality. Overall, I’m very satisfied with my purchase. 513173

This rack is top quality. Got a great deal from etrailer.com. 483041

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. 440352

Just got my rack from etrailer. Free shipping was great and arrived early. Etrailer had the best price on this rack. 20% lower than anywhere else. Plus free shipping. Can't beat that. Customer Service was outstanding. Called a couple of times to check on estimated delivery. Will definitely use etrailer again. 398060

Review from a similar Kuat NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks

This bike rack was exactly as shown on the website and arrived in excellent conditions with all parts included and clear assembly instructions. While I was doing the assembly, which is not difficult, a number of passersby stopped to observe and comment as to the high quality of the product. Great bike rack with very good operating characteristics. Well designed. 711447

Review from a similar Kuat NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks

It's very easy to assemble and works great the two times I've used it, over washboard roads and potholes. I ended up buying this after going back and for over a few other brands in the upper end price range. I settled on this one because my wife would be using it without me around so usability was paramount. It's easy to drop down, load everything from cruisers to kids bikes and it's stable. Win. Win. Yep, it's a few extra bucks, but the engineering, fit and finish is an upgrade to my lexus! 547550

One year later, its still the best bike rack purchase Ive ever made, worth every penny. Very solid and simple to use, you can even take it off-road!

Review from a similar Kuat NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks

Very pleased with the quality and construction of the Kuat bike rack. Had a little issue when installing the add on rack. One of the receiver nuts was miss aligned with the bolt but was able to get it to work. Rack is very sturdy and easy to add and remove bikes. A little on the pricey side but you get what you pay for and piece of mind knowing your bikes are safe and secure is worth the extra expense. I would definitely recommend this bike rack. 405074

Best Bike Rack. I am very glad that I got to find what I needed; thanks to the product reviews on YouTube. It is not only strong, it also looks very nice. The bike is well secure and very easy to mount and dismount. To assemble the rack, just follow the instructions shown on youTube. It is that easy. etrailer.com was my best choice to buy. The service is outstanding. I highly recommend this product. Not only looks great, it also looks nice on any SUV. 416914

Review from a similar Kuat NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks

Well, well, made! It is heavy and I'd certainly like to see it become lighter. Rear wheel tie down strap could use a slot on the back to slip the strap into while loading/unloading to keep it out of the way. Some other racks have this. I'd like to see the add-on bike clamp have a securing key to keep from having it stolen or having to remove to keep safe and be longer if possible. I truly think it is great though. 511064

Cant say enough about it. Been a year now and it still works and looks like new. Yes I take good care of my things but it has been a great product to have. Very well made.

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.

  • Dimensions of the Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack when Folded Up or Down
    The Kuat NV 2.0 # NV22B measures 55-1/8 inches wide overall, folded or unfolded. The height when folded is 25-3/4 inches. When unfolded it is approximately 13 inches tall. When unfolded the rack is 37-3/8 inches front to back. When folded up it is 20-5/8 inches front to back. I have included a picture that shows numerous measurements of the rack.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Fat Bike With 4 Inch Tire Width
    There are bike racks that can accommodate your fat bike with a 4 inch tire including the Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202. I also recommend checking out the Kuat NV 2.0 # NV22B along with the Phat Bike Adapter Kit # APBK, which will allow you to use tires that are up to 4.8" wide on the NV 2.0. This bike rack uses ratcheting hooks to grip your bike by its tires so there is no frame contact, features an integrated foot lever so you can tilt and fold the rack and has sliding ratcheting straps...

    The integrated locks for your Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack like # NV22B will have the key number stamped both on the keys themselves and on the lock cores right above the key slot. The numbers on the keys are pretty small and hard to read but there should be a clear stamped number on the cores.

    I can tell you have been doing some research and know what you are looking for.

Both the Curt # C45791 and the Brophy # HE06 options will still cause some play by themselves because of the weight sitting further out from your trailer hitch pin hole. What...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack For 2020 Subaru Outback Wagon
    I recommend to use the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer hitch part # EH34FR for the 2020 Subaru Outback Wagon because it will be a bit more concealed compared to the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver hitch part # CU89FR for the 2020 Subaru Outback Wagon. Although both options are concealed cross tube designs the Curt receiver does sit closer to the ground on the Outback compared to the EcoHitch.

I confirmed this with my contact at Yakima for you. They have tested these together which is why they are able to confirm fit.

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2018 Nissan Murano
    Out of the Curt # C13205 and Draw-Tite # 75952 trailer hitches for your 2018 Nissan Murano I recommend going with the Draw-Tite. Reason being that the Curt requires a stabilizing strap like part # 18050 for all non-trailer loads, like a bike rack, to remain under warranty whereas the Draw-Tite does not. The installation is actually very easy and you shouldn't need a lift for it. If you check out the linked installation video, we didn't even have to lower the exhaust on a 2017 model....

  • Comparison Between Trailer Hitches for a Bike Rack on a 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon
    Excellent question! The immediate difference is that some of the trailer hitches have a 1-1/4" receiver while others have a 2" receiver. We always recommend going with the larger 2" receiver because more accessories are compatible with it. All of the available 2" trailer hitches (linked below) exceed the weight capacity for your 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon so it really just boils down to style and brand. Some of the trailer hitches, Draw-Tite # 75673, Curt # C13206, and etrailer # e98847...

    I don't believe your two 30 inch wide kayaks will fit on the bottom deck of the Yakima EasyRider Double Decker Trailer # Y08129 . I confirmed through my contact at Yakima that the width of the bottom deck is 54 inches inside to inside of the 2 inch diameter tubing that make up the frame. Because the bottom deck has a height of 21 inches, you would not be able to fit your 30 inch wide kayaks on their side, as you mentioned. You could, however, fit one on the bottom and a second or third...

  • 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...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2020 BMW X5
    The trailer hitch that you need to use for your 2020 BMW X5 is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76288. This is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2" receiver and is designed to hide the crosstube so all you see is the receiver itself. Please note if you have an M performance model this will not fit and there are no other options (aside from having a hitch custom fabricated). The written instructions have been linked for you to check out. If you don't already have a bike...

  • Parts Needed to Install EcoHitch on 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon
    One of the neat things about the EcoHitch brand is that they are made from recycled materials (like you noted) which, in turn, are also recyclable. The EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7601 for your 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon only requires a 10mm socket with a ratchet and/or torque wrench # ALL944001 for the tail lights and flange nuts, as well as a flat screwdriver OR the Powerbuilt Trim Pad Remover # ALL648544 for removing the push button fasteners that hold the fascia in...

  • Hidden Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2020 Subaru Outback Wagon
    The best trailer hitch to help you retain an OEM look on your 2020 Subaru Outback Wagon is the Stealth Hitches part # 391SUOB20. Stealth Hitches is a fairly new player in the hitch receiver game and they have completely changed the way that trailer hitches operate. If you check out the linked installation instructions you can see how the stainless steel receiver literally sits behind your bumper and is completely out of sight. When you want to utilize your bike rack simply insert the...

  • Comparing Draw-Tite, Curt, and EcoHitch Trailer Hitches for a 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon
    I'd be more than happy to compare the Draw-Tite # 76227, Curt # C13410, and EcoHitch # 306-X7601 trailer hitches (with the concealed cross tube) for your 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon! All 3 options have the same basic design and the weight ratings exceed that of your '19 Outback Wagon so it really boils down to pricing and construction. I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13410 because it has the best welding done at a reasonable price. Curt also tends to put a thicker powder coat finish...

  • Can Kuat NV 2.0 Fold Up without Hitting 2018 Subaru Outback Bumper w/Draw-Tite 76227 Hitch Installed
    Once installed the face of the receiver for hitch # 76227 will be just about flush with the rear bumper on a 2018 Subaru Outback. This means that there will be enough clearance for the Kuat NV 2.0, such as # NV22B, to fold up without interference. When folded up the rack should measure approximately 7 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the rack. So there will be even more clearance than what is shown in the video I have linked.

  • Will a Trailer Hitch Interfere with the Foot Tailgate Activation on a 2018 Mercedes GLA 250
    Installing a trailer hitch, like the Curt # C13197 that you referenced, on a vehicle like your 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA-250 with the foot activated tailgate will slightly interfere with the activation. Typically you will wave your foot right where the hitch receiver sits. When you install a trailer hitch you will simply need to kick straight out to the left or right of the receiver openening to activate your tailgate. Installation instructions have been attached for you to reference,...

  • Will Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack Fit in Upright Position in Draw Tite Hitch of 2013 Subaru Legacy
    Yes, the Draw Tite hitch part # 75673 that fits your 2013 Subaru Legacy does have the clearance needed to allow your Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack # NV22B to fit and clear when in upright position. When we installed this hitch on a similar Subaru Legacy as yours we found that there was a distance of 5 inches from the center of it's hitch pin hole out to the furthest point out on the rear bumper. So you'd have clearance of 2-5/8 inches!

  • Trailer Hitch For A 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 With Factory Step Bumper
    A great choice of hitch for your Mercedes Sprinter is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13358. The 2" receiver provides you many accessories to choose from for your Sprinter beyond the bike rack. It's also easy to install with no welding required and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. A very popular rack to go on back of your Sprinter is the Kuat NV 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack in Metallic Black # NV22B or Gunmetal Gray # NV22G. The ratcheting hooks will hold your bike securely without...

  • Is Add-On Different for Kuat NV 2.0 and Base Model of NV 2.0
    The correct add-on for your Kuat NV 2.0 will depend on if you have the base model or not. All you need to know is if your bike rack came with Bike Repair Stand # TDKB or not. If it DID NOT then you have the base model, if it DID then you have the standard model. Here are the part numbers and what you might need, depending on your model. - Base Kuat NV 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack # BA22B (Matte Black) requires Add-On # BA02B - Kuat NV 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack # NV22B (Metallic Black) requires...

  • Hidden Trailer Hitch and Fat Bike Rack Recommendation for 2020 Subaru Outback Wagon
    We have a really great hidden trailer hitch option for your 2020 Subaru Outback wagon with the Stealth Hitch # 391SUOB20 which when not in use is totally hidden since the lower hitch opening is completely removable. For a bike rack we have the very easy to use and overall extremely nice Kuat NV part # NV22B which is our most popular bike rack for Subaru owners like you. To allow it to carry fat bikes all you need is the fat tire adapter part # APBK and you'd be set. This rack is loaded...

  • How to Make Kuat NV 2-Bike Rack for 2 Inch Hitches a 4-Bike Rack
    You can easily turn your Kuat NV 2.0 2-bike rack into a 4-bike rack a few times a year when you go camping; all you need to do is get the 2-bike add-on and it is very easily installed or removed. If you take a look at the video I linked and go to about the 1:30 mark you can see the add-on being installed. To make your Kuat NV 2.0 a 4-bike rack you simply need to match it with the appropriate add-on. I will list the 2-bike racks and the appropriate add-on for it: - Kuat NV 2.0 Base...

  • Will Kuat Transfer Bike Rack Allow Rear Hitch to Open on 2018 GMC Yukon
    While we have not tested the Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Platform Rack # TS02G (Gray) or # TS02B (Black) on a 2018 GMC Yukon, it is unlikely to allow the hatch of your Yukon to open when tilted with the on because it is one of the racks with the least amount of bumper clearance. We test fit three racks that will likely allow you to open the hatch on your '18 GMC Yukon when they are tilted with the bikes on, though of course that will depend on how wide your bikes are. I have added links...

  • 4 Bike Hitch Mounted Carrier for 2006 Honda Ridgeline
    I do have a solution for you, however the Kuat NV 2 Bike Platform Rack referenced in your question has been discontinued and we no longer carry this product. It has been replaced with the Kuat NV 2.0, part # NV22B and add-on # NA22B. For a similar design with a more economical price for your 2006 Honda Ridgeline, I recommend the Swagman Quad 2+2 Platform Rack, part # S64692. Like the Kuat, this is a great platform bike rack can carry either 2 or 4 bikes. You will use the included, easily...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Compatible With Kuat NV 2.0 On A 2016 Jeep Patriot
    For your 2016 Jeep Patriot, the Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 87606 is basically the same hitch as the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75712 made by the same manufacturer. This is a nice hitch that will work great with the Kuat NV 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches - Aluminum - Tilting - Metallic Black # NV22B or the Orange and Gunmetal Gray model # NV22G. This bike rack is great in either color and will...

  • Availability of Bike Ramp for Loading E-Bike on Kuat Sherpa 2.0
    Your concerns are definitely valid because the Access Ramp # ANVBRB was designed specifically for the NV 2.0 and it won't fit the Kuat Sherpa 2.0. If you really like your Sherpa 2.0 then your best option is to upgrade to the NV 2.0 so that you can load your E-Bike easier. Aside from the adding the ability to use the ramp you probably need to upgrade anyways because the Sherpa 2.0 has a bike weight capacity of 40 lbs per bike and most E-Bikes weigh in around 55 lbs. Even if you took the...
