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 NV22G 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 NV22G 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.

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.

awesome! We still love this bike rack. We also use zip ties to secure the front tire. It just helps to decrease any remaining shimmy during travel. An Obsidian cover works well to cover both bikes in transit.

This thing is built like a tank! It is of the best fit and funtion I have seen in a bike rack! Solid as can be, fits my bikes perfectly and looks awesome! Plus it folds completely out of the way to access the rear liftgate on my 2022 Rav4!


I have no bike rack envy ever!!!
is the best and well thought out design


This is a great product that has always worked very well. I have carried a 55 lb mountain bike and my road bike from a few miles to nearly 2,000 miles from Washington state to Wisconsin and the Kuat NV 2.0 has performed flawlessly. I highly recommend this bike rack.


The heavy weighted bike rack is what comes with the quality of this rack I have used a simple 4 wheel dolly from [oversupply store] to easily move and store away when not in use.


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 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.

One-year later and still just as satisfied and just as impressed. Need a bike rack, this is the one you need. I am particular and particularly impressed.
Marc - 04/19/2019


Sturdy, great looking, ease of operation, GREAT price all added up to a must have. Rack is great for carbon bikes.


Overall the bike rack does what it says it does but better, it is much lighter than other bike racks with same features, looks great, and well made. Being able to add extra bikes to the rack, or using the repair stand it comes with is also something you don't see with other racks. You will not be disappointed with this rack.

Outstanding bike rack. This rack may cost a little more but it is worth ever dollar. Nothing compares to it not just for all the features others have listed but it looks great. Only problem I have writing this review is when everyone else knows how good it is is I will not be the only one on the road getting all the attention. Works great for my Jeep Wrangler.
David - 10/28/2022


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!!!


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.

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.

Very sturdy hitch. I installed it solo on my 2014 Mazda 3 sedan in 1-½ hours. The written instructions were accurate and complete. The crossbar is completely hidden making for an attractive installation. Ground clearance (bottom of receiver to ground) is a bit skinny at 9-½ inches; but that's because of the car's low clearance. The distance from hitch pin to the rear of the bumper is approximately 5 inches.


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.


I ordered the Kuat bike rack from because they had the best price. The bike rack came very quickly and it was exactly as described. Their customer service was excellent by keeping me up to date on my order. This is my 2nd purchase from etrailer and I will not hesitate to purchase again. Thanks etrailer!!

My recommendation on putting the rack together: Place the main support into your trailer hitch first, then put on all the trays and accessories. The Kuat instructions could be improved upon, but you can figure it out by looking at a picture of it fully assembled.


I have a great rack! (actually my wife does) I have 5 or 6 friends that use this rack and grew weary of throwing my bike on top of the Outback. Additionally my wife has become interested in venturing off on her own and cannot put a bike on top her outback.
etrailer shipped promptly, and the product arrived in good shape, note: there were a few spots where the parts had jostled around in the box slightly and you could see some marring of the surface. This polished right out with a microfiber towel and mothers. There are a few minor nicks (I mean really minor) on the rack;but, they were there before being put in the factory packaging. Not enough to whine about just know the finish is great just not perfect.
Speaking of the finish the color matches my Outback perfectly, it actually looks like an OEM Subaru thing. Fit is good using the Hidden/Drawtite hitch clearing the hatch while tilted back easily even with 800mm bars. The locking Hitch pin that comes with the rack is 1/2" diameter instead of the normal 5/8", fortunately the hitch mentioned above has a smaller 1/2" about 12mm aft of the 5/8" hole. The hole in the rack is 5/8" but do to the snugging system on the Küat the mismatch I'd of no consequence.
Assembly is easy and someone with good mechanical aptitude should be able to do it in less than 10, an extra set of hands would be nice but aren't required. I built mine on an elevated bench and it was quick and super easy, admittedly I used power tools because I have them.
I'm looking forward to the convenience of a tray.


I have had this rack 1 year and I would buy it again. My wife had a hip replacement and it is so easy to get the bikes loaded and going down the road. We have travel probably 5 thousand miles using the Kuat and it is very secure going down the highway. It’s nice to know that a company builds a product that is built like a tank and performs so nice. I have also bought two Curt trailer hitches from trailer and they are top notch as well.


I tried other racks, a lot of them over the years. None is as easy to use, stable, protect cars and bikes. Easy and quick to mount, integrated anti-theft cables. The tilt out feature is great if needed to get into the lift gate. 100% recommended.

Just excellent all around. Its been a year, and I strongly recommend this rack.

Wow!!! What an upgrade from my Thule 4 bike hanging carrier! The Thule was fine for hauling the family's bikes around town but I needed a platform to safely transport my Tri bike to events.
I couldn't be happier with Kuat and this NV 2.0 carrier. Amazing etrailer customer service with Cathy T and absolutely the best price! Super fast free shipping too. I ordered Wednesday afternoon and she arrived ahead of schedule on Saturday. (That's right, this rack is so sweet I gendered it.)
Easy to follow instructions, sweet looks and a secure platform leaves me with absolutely ZERO buyers remorse.
I began my search for a platform carrier at the cheap end of the scale. After a quick study I became convinced that Kuat was my best option. And etrailer made it possible for me to stretch my budget into a FIVE STAR Kuat rack!
Special Thanks to Cathy T for helping with a billing issue that required a few calls!


Arrived intact and very quickly with free shipping. Easy to assemble. Feels rock solid.
Despite the warning that you cannot use with front fenders (which we discovered buried in the manual after purchasing) the front wheel retention gadget holds securely to the fork stabilizers on our mountain ebikes.
Cable locks look easy to defeat but would probably slow down a thief long enough to run into a store for 5min.
Nice design. It is clear that they put a lot of thought into the design and construction of this rack and actually tried using it before selling it.
Great upgrade from our hanger-style Yakima rack that the ebikes could barely be loaded on because of their nonstandard frame designs.
First Kuat product for me. Won't be the last.


Rack is everything I needed in a bike rack. A quality product!

This bike rack is the real deal. Were in our 60s and have no problem mounting the rack. And its beefy construction means I dont worry about the bikes on our way to a trailhead. Wish we had found it earlier.
Peter - 10/26/2022


This Rack Rocks! I go from no rack on the car to rack installed, bikes lock and loaded in about 5 min. It’s sturdy, and so far seems very resistant to the elements. I have had the NV2.0 for a year now and love it!


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. 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.


I am such a busy person I dont normally fill out requests for review, however I am so impressed with my Kuat NV 2.0 bike rack and with etrailer I wanted to let everyone know. Best bike rack i have ever owned and I have owned a lot of them. Great service, great product!


I just installed one of's hitches on my MDX and I'm replacing a 4 year old Swagman XTC2 with the Kuat NV 2.0. The Swagman was okay but I really appreciate the build quality and features of the Kuat. The finish is beautiful and the integrated locks and tilt mechanism will come in handy when I need to access my SUV's liftgate with my bikes on the rack. is a great company to do business with. They had the bike rack in stock and their pricing was the best I could find.


I did a lot of research on tray racks and had narrowed it down to Thule, 1up, and Kuat. Then I started looking at what other riders were using. I didn’t see any 1ups where I ride, but I did see a lot of Thules and Kuats. Thule owners are happy with their racks but Kuat owners are FANATICS! Nearly every Kuat owner was a “brand ambassador.” So far this rack had really lived up to the hype....I guess I am now a Kuat brand ambassador too!
(Assembly tip: assemble upside down and use foam or pillows to prop up center piece as you align the arms.)

  • Can the Kuat NV 2.0 Platform Hitch Mount Bike Rack Change From 4 to 2 Bikes
    Yes, the Kuat NV 2.0 series platform bike rack # NV22G-NA22G that you referenced is an add-on type of rack that can be used as either the 2 bike base rack or the 4 bike rack with the extension. The base two bike Kuat NV 2.0 rack is # NV22G. These racks are popular with groups who do not ride together all the time so the driver does not have to carry either one or two bikes on a four bike carrier all the time. The two bike version weighs 52 lbs and the four bike version weighs 82 lbs....

  • Can a 2-Bike Extension Be Added to the Kuat NV Bike Carrier
    If you go with the Kuat NV # NV22G then you can add a 2-bike extension later using # NA22G. Or just get them both together using # NV22G-NA22G. Either way will work. The bike stand can go at the end of the NV22G (2-bike mode) or at the end of the NA22G (when in 4-bike mode). It can move so no worries! Kuat NV NV22G and NV22G-NA22G are the exact same with the only difference being that NV22G-NA22G comes with the extension, NA22G. All of the features including the locks are the same.

Unlike other racks, Yakima offers a lifetime warranty, as well as an integrated bottle opener for that after-ride refreshment. The rack is also lockable, to help prevent theft of the rack.

If you have a bike with custom 32 inch diameter wheels we are not sure that the bike rack will accommodate the bike.

    In order to determine if this Kuat NV 2 Bike rack, part # NV22G, will work on your 2008 Toyota 4Runner, you will need to take one simple measurement on your vehicle. You will need to measure the distance from the center of the hitch pin on your 4Runner out to the furthest point out on your bumper. If that measurement is less than 10-1/2 inches, then the bike rack will fit with the rack in the down position. If the measurement is less than 7 inches, then it will fit with the rack in the...

    There were quite a bit of updates for the new NV which Kuat spent three years working on. One of the biggest differences the new Kuat NV 2.0 part # NV22G has over the previous version is that the wheel cradles can now accommodate tires up to 4.8 inches in width. The hitch pin design allows you to install the rack without any tools instead of needing a wrench for the anti-rattle bolt. The foot release lever can now allow the rack to tilt down for more access to the rear cargo area. That...

  • Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack or RockyMounts Bike Rack
    It's really tough to find a higher quality bike rack than the Kuat NV 2.0 part # NV22G that you mentioned. If you were a fan of your old one I would highly recommend the 2.0. I am not sure which specific RockyMounts bike rack you are referring to but in general the NV is considered a higher quality bike rack than all of the RockyMounts line so there aren't any racks made by them that I would recommend over the NV. I attached a review video for the NV for you to check out as well.

    On the Kuat NV, # NV22G, when no bikes are on it and you have the arms folded down it measures 13-1/8 inches from the center of the hitch opening to the top most part of the rack. But if you have the arms folded down and also tilt the rack down it measures 11-7/8 inches.

    There is a Kuat bike rack that has a repair stand that comes with it but it's not the Transfer. It's actually the NV 2.0 part # NV22G. I attached the best picture of how it's used that we offer but we don't have one yet with a bike installed in it.

  • How Far From Vehicle is the Kuat NV 2.0 When Folded Down
    How far a rack sits back from the vehicle depends partially on the vehicle itself. So I can't tell you that exact measurement. However, what I can tell you how far out the rack is from the hitch pin hole, and you can then measure from the hitch pin hole to the outermost point on your vehicle and you'll know how far the rack is from the rear. The Kuat measures 33 inches from the hitch pin hole to the furthest point when folded down and 18-1/2 inches when folded up. Another notable thing...

  • Can Tailgate on 2016 Ford F-150 Be Lowered with the Kuat NV Bike Rack Mounted
    On the Kuat NV 2.0 bike rack # NV22G it measures 11-7/8 inches from the center of the receiver opening on a trailer hitch to the top of the nearest arm with the arm folded down and the rack horizontal. If, when lowered, the distance from the center of your receiver opening to the bottom of the lowered tailgate is greater than 11-7/8 inches then there will not be interference. I have included a picture from Kuat showing this and other measurements of the rack. I have also linked a video...

  • Distance From Nissan Armada to End of Kuat NV Bike Rack
    I can help find the distance from your Nissan Armada to the farthest end of the bike racks you referenced though as of January 2018 we have not had a chance to test these racks with an Armada. To find out if either rack will work for you, just measure from the center of the hitch pin hole on your Armada to your garage door so you know the amount of room you have to work with. The Kuat NV # NV22G, when it is folded up, the farthest part of the NV is 18-1/2 inches from the center of the...

  • Will the Kuat NV 2.0 # NV22G Fit the OEM Trailer Hitch on a 2018 Toyota Highlander
    Although I am not sure where the hitch pin hole sits in comparison to the bumper for a 2018 Toyota Highlander with an OEM trailer hitch, I can give you some info so that you can determine if the Kuat NV 2.0 # NV22G is compatible with your vehicle. From the center of the hitch pin hole to: Closest part of rack when folded down: 10-1/2" Closest part of rack when folded up: 7" You can then use these measurements to determine fitment for the OEM trailer hitch on your Highlander. I have attached...

  • Will Kuat NV 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack Fit on 2016 GMC Yukon XL with 2 Inch Hitch
    The Kuat NV 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack # NV22G referenced in your question should work great on your 2016 GMC Yukon XL that has a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. This is a really nice platform rack with large cradles to accommodate a wide variety of tires, including those on fat bikes. This rack also features a hand-tightening cam system for a tool-free installation in your hitch. You simply turn the knob to tighten the rack inside the hitch and help eliminate rattle and noise. This rack can...

  • Best Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for 2020 Subaru Outback Wagon
    For a 2 bike platform bike rack you really can't go wrong with the Kuan NV 2.0 part # NV22G. This widely considered to be the best platform bike rack out there and it's also loaded with features others don't have. I really like how well it's made overall. In terms of overall quality and design nothing really comes close to it. It's very easy to use, very stable, and since it only touches the bikes by the tires it's very secure and won't damage any bike finish. It also has a repair stand...
