Kuat Sherpa 2.0 2 bike rack

The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 platform-style rack lets you transport 2 bikes of almost any size, shape, or frame style on the back of your vehicle. Ratcheting wheel hooks and pivoting wheel cradles hold your bikes with no frame contact. The aluminum rack tilts with bikes loaded for cargo area access and folds up for storage. It installs without tools using the hand-tightening cam system, and it includes locks to secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle.


Adjustable Arms with Ratcheting Wheel Hooks

Kuat Sherpa 2.0 ratcheting wheel hooks

The rack 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. Each hook adjusts in 2-mm increments to ensure a snug fit over your wheel, and it releases with the push of a button.


Kuat Sherpa 2.0 ratcheting arms

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.


Folding Front-Wheel Cradles

Kuat Sherpa 2.0 front wheel cradles

The large, folding front-wheel cradles accommodate most bike wheels. The hinged cradles flip up to hold your wheels in place and fold down so they're out of the way when the rack is folded up against your vehicle. There is a hook-and-loop strap on each cradle that wraps around the tray and through the spokes of your wheel to hold the wheel in place. You can also use the straps to secure the cradles flat so they don't flop around when the rack is in the stored position.


Pivoting Rear-Wheel Cradles with Ratcheting Straps

Kuat Sherpa 2.0 rear wheel cradles

The pivoting rear-wheel cradles self-adjust to accommodate your bike's wheelbase. Set your bike's rear wheel into the cradle and it will automatically adjust to grip your wheel at the optimal angle. Use the ratcheting strap to secure your wheel to the cradle.


Folding and Tilting Design

Kuat Sherpa 2.0 folding design

There is a front-mounted foot lever in the base of the rack that lets a single person easily tilt and fold the rack.


Kuat SH22B tilting down

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

Kuat SH12B 2_bike rack

You can also fold the rack up when you're not transporting bikes. This is great for parking in places where space is limited such as a parking garage.


Tool-Free Installation With Anti-Rattle Device

Kuat Sherpa 2.0 without tools installation

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 Sherpa 2.0 locking cableKuat Sherpa 2.0 locking cable

The Sherpa 2.0 includes locks to secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle. The 1/4" thick cable threads around your bike frames, passes through the cable's looped latch tip, and inserts into the lock on the outside bike tray. Coil up the cable and store it in your vehicle or bike bag when it's not in use.


Kuat Sherpa 2.0 locking kitch pin

To lock the rack to your hitch, simply insert the hitch pin and connect the lock to the end of the pin. The locks are keyed alike so you can use the same keys for both locks.

Video Transcript for Kuat Sherpa 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack Review

The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 is the perfect bike rack for your class two, inch and a quarter, trailer hitch. It allows you to carry two bikes on the back of your sedan, van, or SUV. It tilts away, even with fully loaded with two bikes, so you can gain access to your trunk or rear hatch. It holds your bikes in three places without any frame contact. We have our wheel hook here, putting down pressure on our front wheel into our front wheel cradle. It'll work with tire sizes 20 to 29".

Then we have a tire strap securing our front wheel to our front wheel cradle. Then a rear wheel strap over our rear wheel. I've gone ahead and removed our bikes so we can take a closer look. Our ratcheting arm adjusts to fit those tire sizes we talked about. It has a TPE coating so it won't harm our bikes. Our cradles will accommodate tire sizes up to 3" wide, but also has a smaller cut out groove for skinny roblox 00:01:00 tires.

When not used, our whole bike rack folds flat for compact storage. We can even fold up against our vehicle. This would be ideal for pulling in your garage or in a tight parking spot. It includes a locking a hinge pin, and a semi-integrated cable lock. Comes with three keys.

It's made out of an aluminum construction, so it's going to be light weight, durable, and corrosion resistant. The glossy anodized finish helps further protect it. It features a weight capacity of 40 pounds per bike, and has a limited lifetime warranty. Now that we're done with the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. What we'll do is we'll take our shank, we'll feed it into our receiver tube, and line up our pin holes. Once we get those lined up, we can then take our included pin and lock, slide that through, put our lock in place, and then we can make our way back here to this nob.

This is going to be our anti-rental knob. We'll get this tightened up, and by doing so it's going to reduce a lot of play and rattle within our receiver in our book, to make for a nice, solid ride for our two bikes. Get that nice and tight. If you can see, all that play is gone. In preparation for loading of our bikes, we'll need to lower it down to the platform position. To make our way over here, to this lever. We can use our palm or our foot, whatever is easiest, and then fold it down until it locks in position. Now we can fold out our front cradle. We'll also want to fold out our wheel hook, and then extend it out. We also want to be sure and undo our rear wheel cradle. Now we can grab our bike. It's recommended you load up the heaviest bike first. We'll set our front tire in place, and we'll bring our rear wheel around and rest that in place. Now let's raise our wheel hook up into place, and it's going to end up right in front of our brakes, or our fork, whatever comes first. We want to be sure we're about an inch away when we come down. Then we can just push it in place. Now let's do our rear wheel strap. We'll go between our spokes, over our wheel, bring it down, and pull it nice and tight. With our bike held in place, let's go ahead and finish it off by putting our front wheel strap in place. Let's go around to front cradle. Just like that. I've gone ahead and loaded up a second bike. Now let's go ahead and run our cable lock. We're just going to go underneath our frame and then back through the loop, and then into the lock on the platform. Now that our bikes are secured, let's go ahead and take it on our test course and see how it performs. Here on our test course, let's first go into our swamp. This is going to show side-to-side action, such as going around corners or evasive maneuvering. Then on to our alternating speed bumps. This is going to show a twisting action, such as going over potholes or uneven pavement. Then finally on to our solid speed bumps. This is going to show an up and down action, such as pulling in and out of a driveway, or out of a parking lot. That's going to complete out look at the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 platform style two bike ride for inch and a quarter hitches, part number SH12B.

I have had this rack for a year and used it extensively. The rack folds up to a small footprint so that I can leave it on my vehicle. When removing and re-installing the rack is required, it is quite simple. The rack started to make quite a bit of noise after 6 months or so and the arm needs to be lubricated after a while. Overall very pleased. 570672

Car: 2017 Honda CR-V This is a great rack! There's not a lot to the assembly, other than getting the first two long bolts in, those were tricky. Once those were in there, aligned properly, the rest of the assembly was pretty easy. Attaching the rack to the hitch receiver was the easiest part of the whole thing! The rack is really nicely portable, and will easily store in our apartment during the off season. It takes less than a minute to get it loaded into the hitch receiver. The cable lock is a little bit flimsy, but should hopefully deter casual thievery. What I would have loved to have seen were locks in the retaining arms as well, so those couldn't be messed with by strangers. Otherwise, this rack is really great, and I would highly recommend it. 433069


Comments

The rack is still working great! We had a Saris bones previously, and this rack is so much easier to load the bikes on, and weve never had any issues, even whenb weve hauled our bikes up to Canada. Thanks for checking in, you guys are great, Ive recommended you to anyone looking to buy any kind of bike rack.

The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 is amazing. I’m so happy I went with an aluminum bike rack, instead of a steel one. It is so nice and lightweight. Plus, this one in particular looks great with my 2017 Volkswagen (VW) GTI SE. So easy to install and use. It is really sleek and high quality. 477017

My Kuat Sherpa 2.0 arrived early and was exactly as expected. Very light and easy to install. This is a picture of it mounted on a Curt 11130 hitch on a 2009 Mini Cooper S convertible. Sits a little high, but functional and stable. 494978

Awesome product. This is the third bike rack that I have purchased from etrailer. It is the second hitch mount bike rack for me. The first hitch mount, Thule, required additional strapping to hold the bike on the rack - which was a pain. Nothing more unsettling than looking out the rearview mirror to see your bike dangling off the back of the car! However, this Kuat Sherpa is an awesome hitch. Bikes are easy to load and unload. Bikes do not touch or rub against each other. They are secure in place and I have no worries about trips down the interstate. If only I had known, this would have been my one and only bike rack purchase. 463703

I love my Kuat Sherpa 2.0. I have it on my Mazda CX5 for about a year now and I leave it on most of the time Dropping it so I can get into the back of my car is barely an effort and I do this quite a bit. I get annoyed easily at little nuisances so this is saying A LOT! The best part about this bike rack, though, is how QUICK and EASY it is to rack the bikes. I can have two bikes racked and be driving away before anyone else has even one bike racked - whether it be a hitch rack or a roof rack. I often wonder why everyone does not have a Kuat. I know they are expensive but this rack is worth every penny and then some! Getting the rack off my car, when necessary, is also easy to do - just unlock the pin, loosen the ball that keeps the rack secure in the hitch and pull off. The only word of caution is to READ the installation instructions BEFORE you open the box!! I did not and realized too late that the box serves as an assembly aid. Putting it together should take 10 minutes but it took me too long (too embarrassed to say) and was not a fun experience. This was due to my own stupidity since I am pretty sure the box stated to read first. Buy a Kuat! 658365

Its ease of use to secure and mount bikes quickly makes this rack the best choice in this class. 634154

We initially chose this bike rack over several others due to the fit and finish, ease of use and the fact that it was a great aesthetic match to the car. In addition, due to our car's sunroof, a roof rack was not an option. That being said, after several prior years with roof rack, we will now always choose a platform style carrier because of the ease of use and ability to use the same rack with several of our cars. It's great being able to just pull the bike off of the rack and be ready to go. It's also nice to have out trunk completely free of bike wheels on trips! 611240

This rack is great. It fits well on our vehicle and is very flexible. Not only do the bikes fit well and not interfere with each other but the rack tilts up and down even while the bikes are on it. It folds up neatly too on the car when the bikes are not on it. I would highly recommend this rack. And everyone a eTrailer was helpful. They were great. 610097

I love it! It does exactly what I had hoped for: Easy and quick to use! It folds up and down in a second to access trunk. It takes only a minute to (un)mount two bikes. It is sturdy and takes quite a beating (I constantly use the rack to temporarily hold stuff I load into my car). And it looks stylish. I was hoping for a rack that would not stand between me and a bike ride, and it does exactly that! Highly recommended! 525185

Love my new Sherpa rack. Light weight, attractive, and easy to load bikes on to. Very easy to assemble, read the directions and then follow them exactly, took 10 minutes to complete assembly. Like the flip up front tire holder and the built in locking system. Overall couldn't be more pleased with my purchase. 478476

Love the bike rack. Such good instructions to assemble it. The tow hitch was easy to install. But it is a two man job and a car lift would have made installation a lot easier. 450254

Quality. Well built. Easy to put together. Few parts. Tip. Read Directions first before you pull contents out of box as the box itself supports installation. Also, I would watch a You Tube Video to get an overview of the process. etrailer was prompt and offered great customer service followup. 430092

The Kuat rack was easy to assemble and has performed very well. The bikes were easy to load and unload and stable on rough roads. The rack looks good folded on the back of my Traverse and folded down allowed me to access golf clubs. I recommend this rack. 525471

Hitch: fits perfectly; screws worked perfectly Bike rack: Really good, but bar holding tire is not always a secure hold. Really need to align properly and push down hard. Would be nicer if it was a very sure support. We like that bikes stand (not hang) and there are just a few straps. 639176

Best bike rack ever! I hesitated making this purchase because of the cost, but after having and using a Kuat rack, I will never go back. It is the highest quality and a pleasure to use. Also, Kuat customer service is great! etrailer.com had the best price and super fast shipping. I ordered it on a Sunday and received it two days later. Very impressed! 496293


Comments

Still love this bike rack after one year however, a note of caution is warranted. Kuat advises to place the front tire holder as close to the fork as possible. I placed a very expensive bike with fenders on the rack and put the front tire holder just in front of fender because I didn’t want to bend the fender against the tire. As I was going down the road the bike rocked and the front of bike fell off. The bike was damaged as it was dragged along the pavement for several feet. Just remember to put the front holder as close to the fork as possible and you will love this rack.

A bike rack such as the Kuat Sherpa isn't really intended for bikes with fenders, as the rack really cannot hold the bike tightly enough unless the ratchet hook is attached directly to the tire right in front of the hook.

Review from a similar Kuat Sherpa 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


I feel I did my homework looking at all platform style towing hitch bike racks. I need one for two bikes and wanted something lighter in weight than the ones my friends use. The Thule and Yakima are rated well though weigh 50 pounds or more. Etrailer's site provided the best collection of racks and the ability to compare. The were also very receptive to questions and were honest when they were not sure if a rack would fit a specific vehicle. Their prices are competitive and likely the lowest. We have a 2015 X5. I have an Invisa-Hitch on the back. The new Sherpa 2 was exactly what I was looking for, though wanted to be sure it would work for this style hitch and on my vehicle. The rack arrived a few days after it was ordered. The assembly was a piece of cake and all parts and tools were provided. The hitch fit perfectly on the back of the X5. We have only transported road bikes to date, though will have haul hybrids and mountains in a week or two. The 30 pound weight makes it easy to install and easy to store on the wall in our garage. I'd recommend the Sherpa 2 to anyone who wants a lighter weight, though very sturdy bike rack that looks good on the back of your SUV. Etrailer has provided me great service. 277843

What a spectacular bike rack! I saw the rack in the local bike shop. I was sold. With the sales tax savings.... I caved and purchased online. The bikes are solidly cradled on the Kuat. A prior bike rake led to bike finish scrapes....not with the Kuat! The purchase and shipping were uneventful. I am happy to refer "etrailer" to my friends! Thanks. Lexus RX 350. 335094

Review from a similar Kuat Sherpa 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


I'm very pleased with the Kuat Sherpa 2.0. Fast delivery, and straightforward assembly. Some reviews noted having trouble inserting the bolt in step 5, but the assembly video from Kuat shows that pivoting the rack a bit makes it trivial (Search for "Sherpa 2.0 - Assembly" on YouTube). It is very well constructed and solid on the hitch. The back up camera on my 2017 VW Tiguan SEL is obscured a bit, but still usable. Even with the wide bars on my mountain bike there is plenty of clearance between the bikes, and to the back of the car, including tilting it down to open the hatch. It fits the 3" tires on my 6Fattie perfectly. The cable lock is long enough to secure both front wheels and frames of my bikes. I also use the cable to secure the rack in my garage to deter casual thieves. Highly recommended. 499477

Review from a similar Kuat Sherpa 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


Took my time to pick out just the right platform rack. Absolutely hate to have to buy things twice. etrailer was just the place to do the research and eventually place the order. Can't find a better website with more objective information. That said, we are loving this choice. The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 is exactly the right fit for the truck (F150 4X4) and how we plan to use this unit to camp and bike. One of the critical features for us was that the platform rack, minus bikes, had to fit under the tailgate when gate was dropped fully down. Many, many of the otherwise very nice platform racks will not meet this requirement. Many of these will scrape your paint and dent your tailgate. With respect to the Kuat Sherpa, there is a full 2" clearance with the gate fully dropped, so no sweat there. Next, the unit had to be lightweight and with an easy on and off system. Heavy racks that require a ratchet to complete the install simply were not going to work for us. The Kuat is made out of tough tube aluminum, with a nice powder coat finish and weighs just over 30lbs, plus there are no tools required to install and secure it to the hitch. The rack locks in place with a simple hand-tightening cam system using a single, easy to get to, well-designed knob. Finally, carbon frame maybe in your future? Okay, again the Kuat fits the bill. This is a "no frame" contact, extremely easy bike load design. No exaggeration, the rack goes from garage to truck hitch, bikes loaded/secured, and then we're backing out of the drive in under 15 minutes. Did I mention how lightweight it is? Love the fact that I am thinking about the bike ride and not worrying about how I am getting the bikes there. 423863


Comments

Absolutely love the Kuat bike rack. My wife uses it easily by herself whenever she wants, which happens to be almost daily, and we use it all the time to take the dog and bikes to the park. Cant imagine not having it and if that were the case, wed have to buy it all over again. In sum, my guess is that the preceding dialog subtly reveals how much I think of the product.

Review from a similar Kuat Sherpa 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


TLDR: Awesome. Easy. Secure at 80 mph. I have really enjoyed this Kuat rack over the past year. Installation was straightforward (just crank down on that tightening bolt through the hitch!), and I can move the rack on and off the car without too much effort. The rack weighs around ~30 lbs if I recall correctly. This rack keeps my bike safe with no problem going 80 mph down I-10 across west texas or over subpar roads in town. It takes seconds to load and unload the bikes. No fidgeting for 10 minutes to secure the bike. No ratchets to come loose and drop your bike on the road behind you, which I recently saw. :/ Just quickly load up your bike(s) and go. And yes, it can all be operated one-handed while holding a bike or a bag. The tilt down mechanism is great when bikes are loaded on the rack, and I need to access my hatchback area. Otherwise, I can open the hatchback on my Prius without a problem when the rack is folded up. Prius side note: I had a 1-1/4 hitch installed for this rack. Love it! I really appreciate etrailer's videos and pricing. Thanks! 553165

Just what I needed. I have considered multiple brands and models but ended up deciding to get the Sherpa 2.0, mainly because its lightweight and easy to set up. So far no regrets about it. Took it in three road trips already to carry two 29ers and it has performed really well, no issues about bikes coming into contact with each other. Highly recommended! 561361

The quality of this rack is outstanding. I had a Saris super clamp ex and had to take it back for other reasons not related to quality and this rack by Kuwat is a better built higher quality rack and ease of operations is much better than the Saris. The attention to quality is evident right out of the box with the assembly process. You will be highly satisfied with this purchase! 496575

Review from a similar Kuat Sherpa 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


Other than a few little snafus while attempting assembly, (put bolts in on wrong end), everything went together nicely. Directions could be a bit more precise, and parts should have identifying stickers with pointers or something to simplify trying to figure out what goes where, and in which direction. Might just be my super assembly skills. haha. Got it done, however - in about 30 minutes. Quality is great, looks good on car, and bike fits nicely. Very secure and sturdy. I'm in my 60's and I can easily get this rack onto the car, the bike on the rack, and open the back hatch with the bike loaded. Retirement-here I come! eTrailer customer service is outstanding. 277347

Review from a similar Kuat Sherpa 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


I have been using the SH22G for 3 months and have made 4 trips at over 2 hours each way to try it out. I made a very good decision in purchasing this rack. I timed my bike loading with 2 road bikes ready to be loaded. Total time to load and secure 1 min 11 seconds. My 2 other racks take me 10 minutes to secure the bikes. This is the best looking bike carrying rack I have seen. The design is sleek, with no hanging pieces of metal. If you are into design you will love this beauty. It solved the problem with my spouse being able to easily lifting her bike on the rack and securing it when I am not available. It is so simple, sit it in the tire slots lower the hook over the front tires. The straps engage through the tires quickly. My bicycles are no longer hanging by their frames, they rest secure on their tires, The wheels don't swing or spin and the bike frames don't bang against each other. I can lower the bikes on the rack to load my vehicle. The rack comes with a built in cable lock. This rack is quiet and does not rattle or sway when driving. It rides so easy I can forget it is back there. 562344

Review from a similar Kuat Sherpa 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


Excellent bike rack with easy operation. Nice finish. etrailer sent it quickly and it arrived in excellent condition. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it appears that the part that connects to the hitch is the older model; however, the rest of the rack is the upgraded version. We do have the upgraded release latch. Also I should note that I got it for about $70 cheaper than the suggested price of $489. The anti-rattle knob and part that connects to the hitch is exactly like the one in the older version and the bolt didn't exactly line up to put it the part on that connects that part to the upper part of the new version. We just tapped it into place and it went fine. The anti-rattle knob is a tiny bit harder to reach but it appears to do its job. I am easily able to open my hatch door with plenty of room when I tilt the rack down and it is very easy for me to tile by myself being a weak female. Overall, I am happy and could have given it 4.5 but there is no option to do that. 435886

Really impressed by the quality. Some minor assembly required but the factory has made assembly very easy. The rack is very sturdy & the hitch tightening assembly works really well. The rack positioning also works flawlessly and is solid. Yes it is an expensive rack but you get what you pay for here. Of course eTrailers shipping page keeps you abreast of where your package is located as it makes its way to you. As soon as UPS drops the package off at your door its immediately reflected on your orders shipping page. So you dont have to wait at home for it to arrive. Just check eTrailers online shipping page & you know when it has arrived. 351541

I love this bike rack. I am a 5’2” small framed woman. I wanted a bike rack that I could easily put on and off of my Ford Escape by myself. This rack is so easy to use. It is also simple to put the bikes on and off. They feel totally secure and do not move at all while traveling. I love how the rack locks to the hitch and there is also a cable to lock the bikes on. I have had this for a year and it has held up extremely well. The only issue I have had is the ring for cover for the hitch pin lock no longer stays attached when lifted off. It’s a minor issue, and is still totally usable. 672627

This is a sturdy, well engineered product. The shipping box acts as the assembly platform, making the assembly a snap. The rack fits perfectly in the hitch and the bikes are easy to mount. The bikes are held snuggly in place. The rack is expensive, but worth the money. One note, when folded up, it can interfere with the rear backup camera on our Jeep, which is not a big issue with me. 669349

Review from a similar Kuat Sherpa 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


I had been interested in a Kuat rack for some time based on reputation, light weight, ease of use and that it just looks good. It realized it would not work on my JK wrangler with an over sized spare tire so I needed to also use the Kuat Hi Lo extension. First off when this rack was place in my etrailer.com cart the price dropped to an amount I had not seen anywhere!!! More than offset the extension and the sales tax - Sweet! The rack came quickly on the day it was stated and with free shipping, Usually large items get beat up in transit but this was packaged very well. TIP!!! Don't pull everything out of the box like I did. The way it is packaged is designed to make assembly easy - very cool! I had to put things back into to do what they recommended and it worked great. (Needed a torque wrench for the installation) For my application using the Kuat Hi Lo I needed 2 locking pins other wise the rack and bikes were not a secure as I would like them to be. Since the Kuat Hi Lo extension did not come with a lock I used the rack pin lock on the Hi Lo and bought another after market lock to use on the rack itself. It is incredible easy to use and even looks good on the Jeep. 664164

  • Recommended Bike Rack Options For A 2015 Lexus IS 250 Convertible
  • You have a few options to consider in order to install a bike rack on your 2015 Lexus IS 250. You can use either a trunk mounted bike rack or a hitch mounted bike rack. For a trunk mounted bike rack, I recommend the Hollywood Racks Expedition 2 Bike Carrier part # HRF6-2 as this is our most affordable option we have available for you. However, you will not be able to access the trunk while this bike rack is installed. In order to access the rear cargo area, you will need a hitch...

  • Does Kuat Sherpa 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack Have Fat Tire And Thin Tire Options

You can add a Phat Bike Adapter Kit, Item # APBK, that only adds a tire strap extender and a secondary strap to the rack to carry 1 fat bike with tires up to 4-3/4 inches wide. The Sherpa will carry 2 bikes that are 40-lbs or less and works with wheel sizes from 25 inches to 29 inches. It also has a cable and hitch lock with 3 keys included.

  • In order to use a hitch mounted bike rack with your 2017 Toyota Prius Prime you need a trailer hitch. For this I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24966. The Draw-Tite Sportframe is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver tube opening. The only trailer hitch receivers they make for your Prius Prime are Class I. Therefore, you will need to use only Class I rated bike racks. In addition to the class rating you need to take into consideration the recessed receiver...

I recommend taking a look at either the Kuat NV # BA12B and Kuat Sherpa # SH12B. I've added links to video reviews of each rack for you to check out.

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2018 Subaru Impreza Hatchback
  • Using a hitch mounted bike rack is not towing so it is still a viable option for your 2018 Subaru Impreza.
