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.

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!

This rack is still awesome!



by:

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.



by:

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.

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.



by:

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.



by:

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.

Timothy

Very well and I am still very satisfied with your products. The Kuat is very simple to use and very secure. We use it a lot and it is great traveling from Michigan to Florida.



by:

Overall very good design, well thought out and worth the money. The locking system is particularly well designed and functional and it's a clever way they have the unit fit tightly into the receiver on the car so it doesn't wobble around. The mechanism to adjust the angle also works perfectly. Only two issues I have with it: it's very heavy and assembly was a bit of chore without someone to help because it's hard to hold the pieces just so as you are fitting the bolts into place. That being said, I am happy with the purchase and if you can handle the weight, you should get one. If I could, I would give it 4 1/2 stars



by:

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.

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!!!



by:

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.



by:

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



by:

I ordered the Kuat bike rack from etrailer.com 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.



by:

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.



by:

Fantastic bike rack. Switch it between a Honda Ridgeline and a Subaru Outback Wilderness and it works perfectly.

Accidentally lost the locking pin that secures the rack to the trailer hitch and when I inquired with Kurt about ordering a replacement lock keyed to match the locking cables on the rack and the Kuat rep sent one to me for free. (I removed the rack and left the lock sitting on my car bumper. Later that day I drove off and lost the lock on the highway).



by:

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.



by:

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!



by:

This is a fantastic bike hitch. Sturdy and securely holds 2 bikes. I traveled to Florida from New York and then back this past spring with 2 bikes on the hitch and had zero issues. Only downside is the weight of this hitch; it is a beast to get on and get off...clearly however the weight of the hitch is the reason it is so sturdy and effective. Highly recommend, with the caveat that you have to muscle it on and off your car.



by:

This rack is the best bike rack I’ve owned. It’s build well and designed well. etrailer was a pleasure to deal with. The shipping was fast, communication was great and they had the best online price.



by:

We are just assembling the bike rack. So far easy instructions. We cannot wait till it is nice enough to go biking again. I look forward to using the bike rack so I do not need to load it onto our pickup. I will be a lot more independent with this.

Havent used it yet. Busy year no trips. This year for sure.



by:

Just received this carrier today. I haven't even opened it yet and can tell you that it is a great carrier, we have had one before. The fantastic thing about this whole process is the attention you get from etrailer.com. They are GREAT to do business with. They fill and ship orders so quickly that it dazzles me. I ordered this on Saturday night, it was shipped on Sunday and I received it on Wednesday. Shipping was FREE!!! What a deal. And Ashley even emails me when it is shipped and again when she gets notice it is delivered. GREAT SERVICE!!! Thanks! I am proud to recommend etrailer.com.



by:

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.)



by:

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.



by:

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.



by:

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.



by:

Excellent service and the products were as advertised. I would not hesitate to do business with etrailer again.



by:

This thing is rock solid. No teetering/swaying with bikes on it at all after you adjust the hitch tension knob. It also looks great if you care about that type of thing. Highly recommend getting the dock as well so you can mount it on the garage wall when not in use. Also two thumbs up to the etrailer staff who quickly replaced a small damaged part which was damaged while in transit with UPS/Fedex.

  • Is there a Vehicle Speed Requirement for the Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack
    There isn't a vehicle speed requirement for the Kuat NV 2.0 bike rack # NV22G. I wouldn't take it out on a NASCAR track or anything but any posted speed limit on any given road would be fine. I have linked a video review of this rack for you.

  • What is the Weight Capacity of the Original Kuat NV Bike Rack?
    According to my available specs on the discontinued Kuat NV, the weight capacity on that rack is 60 pounds per bike. This is the same capacity as the 2.0 version. However, I strongly recommend the newer 2.0 version # NV22G over the previous model. This is because the 2.0 has the foot-release lever and can accommodate wider bike tires. Additionally, the arms that attach to the bikes were redesigned to allow them to glide more smoothly. Another great addition is that the locking hitch pin...

    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.

    When you have a bike rack like the Kuat NV part # NV22G installed in the hitch of a vehicle you greatly limit what can be seen out of a backup camera.

  • Platform Bike Rack for Carbon Frame Time Trial Bike
    We have almost exactly what you need, but all of the platform bike racks use a strap to secure the rear wheel of the bikes. If you didn't strap the rear wheel down it could potentially bounce off and hit the road. You don't have to really crank the strap down on the wheel though so it would not damage your expensive wheel. We've sold quite a few racks like this and have never had an issue with a customer with the wheel strap. The nicest bike rack we have for this application is the Kuat...

    There were quite a bit of updates for the new NV which Kuat spent three years working on.

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...

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.

    The Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack # NV22G fits bikes with a wheel base of 50", tires between 25"-29" and as wide as 5" with the fat tire adapter (1 included). If your fat tire bike is within all of those specifications, then it will fit on the NV 2.0 rack. You would just need to ensure that the front tire support arm is fully extended to clear the tire. If the front support arm is not clearing the tire, that would be more of an indicator of a wheel base that is too large rather than the width...

  • Best Bike Platform Bike Rack and Tips for Outdoor Storage
    You can't go wrong with either bike rack but I do really like the Kuat NV 2.0 part # NV2G that you referenced as it is basically the nicest bike rack on the market with more features and flexibility than any other rack available. Since the rack has to go outside I would recommend covering it with a tarp or something to protect it from the elements and the squirrels you mentioned. Would also help as a theft deterrent if no one could see the rack.

  • Differences Between Kuat Sherpa 2.0 and NV 2.0 Bike Racks
    The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 # SH22G and the NV 2.0 # NV22G that you referenced are both excellent platform-style racks that will hold your bikes by the front wheels with no frame contact. These are top-of-the-line carriers and you really would not go wrong with either option. As you mentioned, the NV does have wheel cradles that can support fat tire bikes with up to 4.8 inch wide tires and does have a higher weight capacity of 60 pounds per bike (40 pounds per bike on the Sherpa). The NV does...

  • Can The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack Handle The Weight Of Two E-Bikes
    The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # SH22G has a 40lb per bike capacity so unless removing the batteries drops the weight of the bike back down below 40lbs this would not be a compatible option. Technically you should never be hauling your e-bikes with the batteries installed on them. There should've been a note in your e-bike's manual that states to store it inside the vehicle while hauling. Most likely you will need to use a different rack with a higher capacity otherwise you risk...

  • Will Kuat NV Aluminum Bike Rack NV22G Fit 2-Inch Hitch
    The Kuat NV Aluminum Hitch-Mount Bike Rack # NV22G will fit 2-inch hitch receivers. This excellent rack is illustrated in the linked video. The NV is compatible with wheelbases up to 50-inches, tire width to 4-1/2-inches and wheel sizes from 20- to 29-inches. The rack can be expanded with the 2-bike add-on part # NA22G.

  • Comparing Kuat Sherpa and NV Bike Racks
    The Kuat NV part # NV22G and the Sherpa part # SH22G are both very nice bike racks that we recommend highly. You can't go wrong with either but the NV is considered to be the nicer of the two. It has a built-in repair stand to make working on a bike while on the trail a bit easier and has wider trays for accomodating wider tire width of up to 4.8 inches compare to the Sherpa which has a max width of 3 inches. The advantage the Sherpa has is weight. It only weighs 32 lbs whereas the NV...

  • What Does Wheel Mount Only Mean for Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack
    Sorry for the confusion! By wheel mount for the Kuat NV part # NV22G we are referring to how the rack attaches to the bikes. Not how the rack mounts to the vehicle. Wheel mount only means that the rack only touches the bikes at the tire/wheel to secure it. This is the preferred method as it means the rack will not come into contact with any painted surfaces. Carbon frame bikes have to use this style since they have a much more delicate construction and you don't want any pressure on the...
