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 2 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 2 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 SH22B 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

Speaker 1: Today we'll be taking a look at the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 platform style 2-bike rack. It's available in gray, part number SH22G. It's also available in black, part number SH22B and in pearl, part number SH22P. This platform style 2-bike rack tilts down even with the bikes loaded, so you can have full access to the rear of your vehicle. This is perfect for getting any gear, groceries, or anything else you might have with you on your trip. It holds your bike in place by this front wheel hook, putting down pressure into the front wheel cradle.

There is no frame contact. Here at the rear, the strap keeps our tire in place.I've gone ahead and removed one bike so we can go over some additional features. The wheel hook retracts and folds down when not in use, and the front wheel cradle folds flat for a sleek, low profile design. Now I've gone ahead and removed our second bike. You can see that the rear wheel cradle here pivots to accommodate different bikes.

The wheel hook itself is fully adjustable. It's going to work with wheel sizes from 20 inches all the way up to 29 inches, and it's coated to prevent your bike from getting scratched up. Both the front and the rear wheel cradles will accommodate a tire width up to three inches. Another great feature is that we can fold the bike rack up against the vehicle for compact storage. We'll come over here to our lever, raise it up until it snaps in.

This would be ideal for pulling into your garage or in a close quarter parking spot.It's constructed of a light-weight aluminum with an anodized finish, so it's going to resist rust and corrosion. It has a weight capacity of 40 pounds per bike, and features a limited lifetime warranty. Now that we've gone over the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed.Now this is for two inch hitches only, so we've got our two inch receiver here. The bike rack is nice and light-weight. Let's go ahead and load it up, then we can line up our pin holes.

Now we want to be sure to get those nice and lined up, that way we can get our pin through. Then we can make our way to the back, to our anti-rattle knob. We're going to start turning that by hand, and what that's going to do is it's going to help tighten up the inside of our receiver tube, and our shank to reduce a lot of the rattle in the play to make for a nice solid ride for our two bikes.Now once we get it tight, I just like to point out that the pin that we used to lock it up into the receiver tube, doubles as the tool to get it extra tight back here. What we can do is put that in, get it extra tight, and then we can take it, put it through and put our lock on the other side. Now as you can see, with all that being done, there is literally no movement in the bike rack at all. I'm actually shaking the entire vehicle. Now to get ready to load it up, we can make our way over to the lever here. We can use our hand or our foot. We'll press down on the lever, and then we can lower it into the platform position until it locks into place.Now in preparation for loading up our bikes, let's go ahead and raise out our wheel hook. I want to be sure to press in on the button here, get it all the way out, then we'll open up our front wheel cradle, and then undo our rear wheel strap. Then we can grab our bike, we'll bring it up and set it in place. Now as you can see in the front wheel cradle here, we've got a few grooves. Just want to be sure to set our tire in the center, just like that. Then we can bring up our front wheel hook. This is going to end up right in front of our fork or our brakes, whatever comes first. In this case our brakes. We'll lower it down, and press it firmly in place. Then for our rear wheel strap, make sure that it goes between our spokes, and then down through the ratchet, and then we've got it.With our second bike loaded up, I'd just like to point out, if you run into a situation where you lower the hook in front of your fork or your brakes, and it's too loose, you can bring the hook out a little bit from there to where it'll hold it in place like so. In that instance, you'll just want to be sure to use the included safety strap for your front wheel. You also may need to use the front tire safety strap if the tires are larger than 2.35 inches, or if the wheel base is longer than 45 inches.Now with our bikes secured, let's go ahead and run our cable lock. We just want to go over both our frames, through the loop, and then we'll just plug it right here into the bike rack itself, and wait for that click. With everything all loaded up, let's go ahead and take it out on our test course and see how it performs.Here on our test course, let's first go into our slalom. This is going to show side-to-side action such as going around corners, or evasive maneuvering. Then onto our alternating speed bumps, this is going to show a twisting action such as going over potholes or uneven pavement. Then finally onto 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 our look at the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 platform style 2-bike rack for two inch hitches.

This bike rack is awesome! It does exactly as as product says in every facet! You can't go wrong with this [email protected]! I am 67 years old and it is extremely easy to install.... on in 3 mins or less! 657464

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

I know this bike rack costs a few $$ more, but it really is worth every penny. It makes carrying the bikes much easier than the others. As we are getting older, it is easier to put the bikes on and off this rack. I highly recommend this rack!!!! 249114

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

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

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

Great bike rack for our CRV Honda, I had the dealership install the bar underneath the vehicle. The rest is so easy to install and stow when not needed. We have made several trips on the interstate for 8 hours or more and you really do not even notice the racks or bikes. We love the drop down lever which allows access to rear hatch. Also the security lock and cable will give you piece of mind when stopping at a restaurant to eat and not worry that your bikes and or rack will be stolen. The bikes are so easy to load and secure, and do not loosen up when on the road. We are very happy with our purchase! 756176

This bike rack is awesome! Really SOLID...we take it across the USA (long trips) and there is absolutely NO movement, rattle, etc! Very secure with hitch lock. Very quick and easy to install. I love the ‘tilt away’ feature. I also like the fact that eTrailer waits 1 yr after purchase to get review from customers...we actually have time to experience the product before weighing in! Thanks! 746219

Your website was so helpful I knew exactly what I was getting. No surprises. The Kuat product is definitely very high quality so I look for many years of use. My favorite features are the light weigh (32#), anti wobble adjustment, and the striking finish. I may leave it on my SUV just for looks! 723338

After reviewing and researching the other manufacturers of a 2 bike rack, we decided on the Sherpa 2.0. It was easy enough to assemble, just follow the directions. We used it for the first time this morning on the back of my Outback and we were both pleased at how stable it was. Easy to mount our bikes and dismount. We plan to use it on our Mustang and my hubs '68 F100 as well. So far, very pleased with the performance and appearance. We purchased the black one for a 2' receiver. 695085

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

Great product, fast and easy assembly with everything you need right out of the box! Kuat without a doubt has great quality products l but the real shout out goes to etrainer.com! I purchased this around the end of the business day at 4pm PST and etrailer.com sent it the same business day! The free shipping was great and it got to my house in California in 3 business days! Say what?! I was a first time customer and now will be a forever customer! Thank you! 605413

I spent a lot of time looking at the Thule and Yakima bike racks and was convinced they were both very good racks. But, in reading reviews I first heard of the Kuat Sherpa 2.0. There are good bike racks, and there are great bike racks. The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 is really a GREAT bike rack. Exceptionally well made, not too heavy, and it only takes about two minutes to mount it AND two bikes to my truck. I especially like the tilt features to either lower my tailgate or raise the rack to fit in tight spaces. With the ease of operation I'm betting we're going to be doing more biking. Oh, and I must add - my first experience buying through etrailer.com was fantastic. Thanks! 568058

Ordered the SH22B Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Platform Rack for my 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe. Once I opened the box, I knew I was getting a high quality item. The packaging design was flawless with no damage or scuff marks on any of the individual pieces; they were all well protected. Assembly was easy as everything fit together quite nicely. Really taking my time, assembly took about 1 hour. The rack is lightweight and very easy to install onto the hitch. One of the best features is the rack cam locking system that keeps the assembly tight to the hitch receiver. Installing the bikes to the rack was also straight forward. The bikes were nicely secured; quickly and easily. I cannot overemphasize the thoughtful engineering and quality Kuat designed into this rack. I would highly recommend this product. Thank you etrailer for a pleasant transaction. 566021

Amazing bike rack! I spent almost two months making a decision on which one to buy. Seeing this weighs about 1/2 of similar racks I finally chose it. For once I read the instructions and it was simple to assemble. When I loaded my bike my wife was in awe how simple it is to use. I love buying from etrailer. Never a problem and great prices too. 561033

Ordered the SH22B Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Platform Rack- 2" Hitch for my 2017 Lexus RX 350 which was received in a few days from ordering undamaged and boxed nicely. The hitch for the SUV was also previously purchased through etrailer.com, which was a cinch to install within 20 minutes. This rack tilts back with bikes on it in a downward motion to clear hatch back and tilts up when not in use. The quality in my opinion was second to none and I did look at just about all the major brands out there. This rack installs very easily, directions are clear, without rushing about 20 to 30 minutes should do it. To me the added bonus with this rack is that it Looks Great on the back of my vehicle.

Ask the Experts about this Kuat Hitch Bike Racks

  • Recommended Hitch and Bike Rack for 2017 Nissan Rogue
    I can see where the confusion may set and I will be happy to clear it up for you. The weight of the hitch itself does NOT count as part of the tongue weight limit; what will matter is the weight of the rack and the bikes. I took a look at the owner's manual for your 2017 Nissan Rogue and it does specify that the maximum tongue weight for your vehicle is 110 lbs, so that is the weight your bike rack and bikes cannot exceed. A bike rack that can hold three bikes would not necessarily...

  • Recommended Kuat Sherpa Hitch Bike Rack for Class II Hitch on 2013 Ford C-Max
    The Draw-Tite 1-1/4-inch Class I Trailer Hitch # 24896 is a confirmed fit on your 2013 Ford C-Max, as is the higher-capacity 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch from Curt, part # C12092. Since both hitches are priced very similarly and since both install in the same manner I do suggest the Curt hitch instead, so long as you do not mind the warranty requirement of using a support strap # 18050 when using a bike rack. If you don't care to bother with this, then the Draw-Tite hitch is a fine choice...

  • Lightweight Platform Bike Rack Recommendation Kuat Sherpa 2.0 vs. Saris Freedom SuperClamp
    The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 part # SH22B is a great lightweight bike rack. Due to it's lightweight construction, wheel clamps that allow for securing bikes without touching the frame, and integrated cable lock it's pretty hard to beat this rack. Typically the only down side to a platform bike rack is the weight. Since this rack is actually pretty light you get the best of both world's. I would highly recommend this rack for you. And I wouldn't let the 40 lb per bike capacity scare you in any way....

  • Will the Kuat Sherpa Bike Rack Clear the Spare Tire on a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    To determine if a bike rack such as the Kuat Sherpa # SH22B will clear the spare tire on your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited there is 1 important measurement needed. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole back to the distance required to clear the spare tire. I have linked a help article that explains this. If that distance is less than 13 inches the Sherpa will clear the spare but it is possible that part of the closest bike will still make contact with it. Another option is...

The Kuat NV 2.0 Base # BA22B is the next step up to the Sherpa 2.0 in regards to Kuat bike racks and it is compatible with your 48" wheelbase. The NV 2.0 Base also comes with bike and rack locks, is a wheel mount platform rack, and has the tilting/folding functions along with the anti-rattle knob at the front of the base assembly. The...

This durable Class III hitch features the sleek hidden-crosstube design you were wanting where only the 2" receiver is visible (see attached image) and its bumper clearance dimension on the Outback allows for a perfect fit with the Sherpa rack.

  • Is a Hitch Bike Rack a Better Option Than Trunk Bike Rack on 2014 Toyota Highlander?
    A hitch-mounted bike rack is an objectively better option to carry bikes on any vehicle for a number of reasons. A hitch-mounted rack gives you more options in terms of th type of bikes you can carry, as well as how they get carried. For example, you can get a rack which will secure your bikes by the wheels instead of by the frame, and there are options for hitch-mounted racks that have the ability to fold up and tilt to allow you access to your cargo area. It is also going to be much,...

    We haven't yet had the chance to test fit the Kuat Sherpa # SH22B on a 2017 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk.

For one that will work perfectly for your application I highly recommend the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 - Black # SH22B, which is also available in Gray # SH22G, Pearl # SH22P, and Gunmetal Gray # NV22G. This is a fantastic platform-style carrier that can hold up to 2 bikes that each weigh 40 pounds. Its sleek design allows it to fold up completely...

  • Will the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Fit 2012 Honda Ridgeline and 2006 Honda Pilot
    You will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole on each vehicle out to the distance required to clear the rear of the vehicle. For the rack to fit when in the down position, the measurements on the vehicle have to be less that 11 inches. And to fit when folded up, the measurements have to be less than 7-1/2inches. Based on installations we have done on a 2012 Honda Ridgeline and a 2006 Honda Pilot, the Kuat Sherpa 2.0, # SH22B, should fit just fine. I have included...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2010 Audi Q5 that Would Allow a Kuat Sherpa to Fold Up
    Only one of the hitches that you referenced is a current option for your 2010 Audi Q5, as the others have been discontinued. The Curt Trailer Hitch, # C131136, you mentioned is still an option and a custom fit to your vehicle. It is a Class III hitch that will allow for the Kuat Sherpa 2 - Aluminum Platform Style 2 Bike Rack # SH22B that you referenced. The Kuat Sherpa 2 has a distance of 9 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest upright portion of the rack when...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Hummer Bikes with Large Frame
    There are absolutely bike racks that will work for bikes that have a thick frame like your Hummers; the best option is going to be one that mounts your bikes by the wheels. I highly recommend checking out the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 because it is a wheel-mount rack that offers a unique combination of function and style. The Sherpa 2.0 comes in your choice of colors: Black # SH22B, Pearl # SH22P, or Gray # SH22G. This is a wheel-mount rack which installs in your vehicle's 2 inch trailer hitch...

  • Can the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Be Used With Bikes That Have Fenders
    If you have bikes with fenders then you will want to use a different bike rack, the Swagman Dispatch 2 part # S64684 or Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 part # HR1450Z are two options I like that have a one-piece 2" shank which minimizes rattle. The reason you will have to go with a frame mount like the Dispatch 2 or Sport Rider SE2 is because wheel mount bike racks like the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 part # SH22B won't work with fenders as the hooks sit too far down on the tire and that increases...

  • Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Vs. Kuat Transfer 2 For Carbon Fiber Bike Frames
    I am happy to help you with comparing the Kuat Transfer2 part # TS02G and the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 part # SH22B. Both the Kuat Transfer2 and the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 are great options for carbon fiber bikes because they hold the bikes by the wheels instead of the frame. The biggest differences between these two bike racks are the wheel cradles, design and the locks. The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack has folding front-wheel cradles so you can fold them out of the way when you want to fold...

  • Will the Kuat Transfer Bike Rack Hold Up Against Corrosion if Left Out in Rain Frequently
    The Kuat Transfer is steel which means that it is susceptible to corrosion but only if the powder coating gets scraped off. If that happens then spraying some paint on it will help stop corrosion from starting. The Hollywood Racks TRS # HR3000 is made with both aluminum and steel parts. Aluminum is naturally corrosion resistant and the steel is powder coated so it is a good option around the same price as the Transfer. If you want a rack that is mostly aluminum I recommend the Kuat...

  • How to Carry Bikes on a 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack with a Sunroof
    Using the JetStream Crossbars # Y00428 along with the TimberLine Towers # Y00147 will be taller than using the Yakima RailBar Crossbars # Y00432-0433 for your 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack but you do need to note that every roof rack manufacturer states that a sun or moon roof should not be used with a roof rack installed. Roof racks do have some wind noise which the aero style bars, although cause less noise, are not immune from. There is also the issue of clearance as well as possible...
