Rotating Arms with Ratcheting Wheel Hooks

Kuat Sherpa 2.0 ratcheting wheel hooks

The Sherpa 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.


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 front 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.


Foot Lever for Easy Tilting and Folding

Kuat Sherpa 2.0 front wheel cradles

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 Sherpa tilting rackKuat Sherpa 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.


Tool-Free Installation With Anti-Rattle Device

Kuat Sherpa 2.0 front wheel cradles

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 front wheel cradles

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 front wheel cradles

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.

I am very happy with my purchase!!! It all began with a pleasant experience contacting Etrailer to confirm that the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 would work with my Class 1 1-1/4" hitch on my 2011 Honda CRV. Roger answered my questions and assisted me with placing my order. I ordered on a Monday and I received it on Thursday in California! It did take me about 2 hours to assemble because I initially tried to follow the written instructions that were in the box. I remembered that several reviewers said that they recommend that you follow the You Tube videos for the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 assembly instructions. Once I followed the videos the assembly was a snap! The bike rack is very sturdy despite weighing in at 35 lbs. I am a 60 year old relatively athletic female and have no problem attaching the bike rack to my hitch! Here's hoping the bike rack holds up for years to come!



by:

It came dissembled and I’m not great with instructions manuals... when I got stuck I [watched] a video on installation of the rack and this made it much better. I love the rack and it was delivered next day! The company is close to home, which I did not even realize, and it felt good to support a local business in the middle of pandemic (and always).



by:

Love this bike rack. Super easy to assemble and holds our 2 e-bikes perfectly

Still love it!! No problems!



by:

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!

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.

Easy to assemble box as a assembly stand great idea liked the anti rattle feature

Used often mostly with 2 bikes including my new e bike.I keep it well lubed no problems.mounted on a Toyota prius



by:

Solid well built bike carrier. This lightweight chassis is much easier to install and remove versus competitors. That’s a plus. Pearl color looks great with my CRV.

Etrailer is a great online retailer. My order came two days early.



by:

I love m Kuat Sherpa 2.0 bike rack for 2 and I love etrailer! I had ordered this rack originally through a different company only to be told 3 mos later that it would not be coming at all. Then I found etrailer a few months later and not only did they have it and send it out right away, but they had the perfect color that matched my car exactly! I get comments about how great it seems from strangers and fellow cyclists all the time.It is easy to use. I did need my son in law to put it together for me and my cousin to mount it on my car. I highly recommend this product and etrailer!



by:

I love my bike rack. I have been pleased with the way it functions. The only complaint I have is that it sits loosely in the hitch and rocks a lot when I'm driving. I wouldn't really give a 5, but a 4 is unfair. I would say a 4.5



by:

I love this bike rack. It is very attractive and functional. I get complements all the time with it being white and how easy it is to use.

Thank you etrailer! I highly recommend this bicycle rack for 2 bikes. It’s with the extra $!



by:

Very nice rack. I looked far and wide and finally settled on this one. I wanted a light weight rack that I could easily remove when not in use. I also wanted something that had a lock and a professional paint job and could handle two bikes and would not block my rear window view.
I had to loosen two of the large factory tightened bolts to get everything to line up during assembly but no big deal in the end. Mounted on a Mazda CX-5. Seems to hold bikes securely. It works great.



by:

Fabulous bike rack, almost too pretty to use!!! The pearl white goes great with our new pearl white Crosstrek, very cool!!! Took me about 15 minutes to assemble and hook it up to the car. Very well engineered and extremely stable. As you can tell, I love this bike rack. Far superior to other racks on the market.



by:

Perfect for my coupe! Love the flexibility to drop the rack further while leaving the bikes on to open/close the convertible hard top is a dream! Comes with everything you need to put it together…no additional tools required.



by:

Perfect rack for what I needed! Easy to install and load bikes on. Very sturdy.



by:

Easy to use. Holds bikes very securely. Works so good I bought another one.

I really like the product. Thank you

So after much research into bike racks, I decided on pulling the plug on the Kuat Sherpa 2.0. I've looked into the Kuat NV and other brands, but they were just too much for my needs. If you've got "regular" bikes and not the heavier eBikes, then this rack is perfect. I wanted a hitch rack that was user friendly and not overly complicated. I have a mixed bag of bikes and this rack can handle them all, from mountain bikes, street bikes, and BMX bikes. I like that this rack comes with an adapter piece for 20"-24" wheels. Assembly of the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 is really a no-brainer. I think it's only 4-5 bolts really. Everything else is ready to go. The anti-rattle hitch ball mechanism is simple to use with just a twist of the dial, easy. The tilt pedal/lever is also easy to access should you need to open your hatch, a solid "click" assures it's in place. So far, loving this rack. Fit and finish is superb. Thanks to Jerred and etrailer for answering my questions, always helpful.



by:

All in all pretty good. The arms that grab the front wheel have loosened a little bit and move side to side. They have never failed, just feel a little wobbly. The hitch receptacle is also hard to tighten but might be due to the receptacle it self. Used rack on a long trip and the bikes moved slightly side to side, but nothing serious.



by:

OMG!! I have been researching and pricing bike racks for a month. Every time I thought I was ready to pull the trigger, I have a question or review that through me off the trail. I was ready to purchase the rack from outdoor retail store and drive 2 hours to pick it up from store to save the $75 shipping, when I thought about etrailer that I had used when I had a travel trailer. Checked them out, they had the exact rack I decided to buy, with $[XX] discount and free shipping. Life doesn’t get any better. It was delivered right on time and in great shape. BTW etrailers website description and videos were better than the racks manufacturer site. You are Rock Stars in my book. Overall, start to finish was above and beyond expectations.



by:

No buyer’s remorse here! After quite a bit of reading and comparing, I have no regrets about purchasing the Kuat Sherpa 2.0. Excellent product, great quality. I would purchase all over again. It is a solid rack that is esthetically impressive to boot.



by:

After doing extensive research before buying my first ever bike rack, I chose the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 platform rack. I considered trunk mounted, hanging and platform racks before settling on a platform rack. I like the stability, the ease of loading and unloading and very importantly, the absence of contact with the frame of my bike. My bike has a beautiful paint job that I want to preserve. I looked at lots of racks online and at a bike shop and opted for the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 because of the excellent engineering, including the design of the packaging that becomes a work bench for assembling the rack, the relatively light weight (32 pounds), the inclusion of a hitch lock and a bike lock, the stability of the platform, even with a 1.25" connection and a class I hitch, and the ease of operation. Additionally, the overall appearance of the rack suggests high quality. Time will tell how well it ages but I'm pretty confident that I'll be pleased with it. I was very fortunate to find a used, like new Kuat via Etrailer at a meaningful discount that still qualified for the manufacturer's warranty! Thank you Etrailer! A tip to pass along that was shared with me, U-Haul is an excellent source for buying and installing hitches to accommodate bike racks - very attractive pricing, high quality installation and a super unlimited lifetime warranty. Can't wait for Spring and the chance to transport my bike to inviting riding venues!! PS The hitch and bike rack work very well with my 2011 Honda Accord Coupe, EXL V6 model that remains in excellent condition.

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.

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.



by:

I would have given 10 stars to Kuat for this product if possible! The included assembly instructions were not the best but I watched a couple online videos and was able to assemble and install on my Outback in 45 minutes or less! Ingenious how they used the box for easy assembly and the tools were awesome (not cheap metal cutouts that I've gotten before). I am amazed how light yet how solid the rack is. I did a test drive with our 2 Beach Cruisers on it and they barely budged. GREAT product and one of the best purchases I've made in a long time. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND.



by:

This rack is great. The adjustable tilt feature is convenient. The price point is solid for the quality. The 4 star rating is simply because some of the plastic melted due to exhaust heat when the rack was in the bikeless up position. Küat warranty and customer service was great. They are replacing the hook. If you're thinking of this for a 2021 Forester, definitely get the Hi-lo adapter so that the hook doesn't sit in line with the exhaust.

  • Curt Trailer Hitch for a 2019 Audi A3
    I recommend the Curt # C11399 trailer hitch for your 2019 Audi A3 (non e-tron). This is a class I hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver.

Since this is a Class I trailer hitch, you are limited to carrying 2 bikes. If you...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2019 Lexus IS 350
    I recommend using the Curt Trailer Hitch # C11389 over the Draw-Tite # 24923 for your 2019 Lexus IS 350 because Curt hitches tend to have better welding and a thicker powder coat which contributes to a longer lasting trailer hitch.
