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

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.


Foot Lever for Easy Tilting and Folding

Kuat Sherpa 2.0 folding design

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

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.

I have had the Kuat rack for a year and find it to be a solid way to transport my bikes. Pros: Build quality is top notch. Bike rack has been mounted to my car for the entire year and not stored inside the garage. I ride 4 times a week and wanted to keep it on the car at all times. The rack has shown no signs of fading, rusting or feeling like it’s getting wore out. Bikes mount ok and remain seated while driving lever different kinds of material. Cons: This is just a small gripe due to the bikes I ride. When mounting large enduro style bikes figment in the cradle area for the tires can get pretty tight and awkward. I run 2.6 inch wide tires and had to add an additional strap to keep the tire from popping out. Yet again, just my own observation due to wide sized tires. Bottom line up front, best bike track for the money and long term investment.

It was so worth the wait for this beautiful, lightweight bike rack. Really liked the in-box assembly directions. Easy to slide rack into the hitch , and love how it can be easily bent back to access the trunk with bikes still on rack. I bought this basically for it's lightweight feature, but it has so much more. Highly recommend!

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.

Comments here are about the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 (2 inch hitch) mounted on a 2019 VW Tiguan SE fitted with a Drawtite 76192 trailer hitch (also purchased from etrailer). Positives: This is a great bike rack! It's super light, easy to use, very well built, and it works just as it should. Negatives: Security is weak, just as with most other racks. (But security is easily improved.) Details: etrailer delivered the rack with lightning speed, of course. (Thanks!) Assembly was a breeze, and learning to mount and secure bikes was equally simple. The hitch cam works much better than I had expected --- no need for a wrench to get a steady-riding rack. And with two bikes mounted, there's no sway, no wobble, no noise, no worries. A great rack, really. One concern (pre-purchase) was about ground clearance. Photo #1 shows 2 bikes mounted. The vertical distance from the ground to the bottom of the rack is exactly 12 inches. That's more than adequate for negotiating my driveway, as well as all for the roads I've travelled so far. Another concern (pre-purchase) was about interference with the backup camera, mainly when the rack is folded up. Photo #2 shows the hitch in that position. The camera is located near the center of that yellow rectangle, so there's some clearance both above and below the outer (upper) tray. Photo #3 shows the Tiguan's camera display as I back into a parking space. So, yes, there is some interference but it's really not bad at all. If you're adept at using your backup camera, the folded up Sherpa 2.0 won't cause major difficulties. Negatives about the Sherpa 2.0 have to do with security. I've got little confidence in the Kuat hitch pin lock, and the cable for locking bikes to the rack is, per the cliche, best at keeping honest people honest. But, a lot of shopping around uncovered few (if any) competing racks that are much better about security. Therefore: Choose your rack based on other criteria, and plan to spend extra money to deal with security. Given that view, the Sherpa 2.0 is an easy winner. 5 stars! On security: I leave a bike rack on my car for 9 months of the year; hence my concern about the backup camera. Photo #4 shows a closeup of the Sherpa 2.0 on my Tiguan. That's a Big Brand high security chain looped around the inner (lower) tray. The padlock passes over the Kuat hitch pin lock (protecting it a little) and then passes through the chain ring of the Drawtite hitch. It will take some effort to steal my Sherpa 2.0. The chain is 100 cm long --- just enough that the rack can fold down to carry bikes. But it's too short to allow the rack to tilt downward fully, so tailgate access is impacted. Photo #5 shows the situation with two trail bikes mounted. That's actually more than enough room to get at the cargo area, and with road bikes mounted the tailgate opens fully. So it's a very minor problem; a slightly longer chain would avoid it but look sloppy most of the time. Typically, I don't need to lock the bikes to the rack, but for those times when I do, I've got two more Big Brand chains each 160 cm long. Each chain can lock one bike's frame and the other bike's front wheel to the chain that protects the rack. This is not ideal, I know. But it's a big improvement over the security of any well-known rack. And the cost of those three chains is tiny compared to replacing a Sherpa 2.0 plus two bikes.

Super fast etrailer shipping and best price around. I unboxed everything before reading instructions. Leave it in the box to assemble lol! It wasn’t hard regardless. Nice bike rack I’d recommend etrailer and the Sherpa.

Awesome! We use it multiple times per week. Absolutely no issues and so quick & easy to use. Highly recommended!

This review was requested on the day the product arrived. First of all: its heavy! Next the instructions are the worst! I got thru it, but had to dis-assemble and re-assemble, due to poor graphics/instructions. Check [for a video]-- has to be a better way to figure it out there. As for the product itself: seems sturdy (but heavy). I did test putting a bike on it & it seems an improvement over the existing hitch style bike rack I now have (although current rack is much lighter). The adjustable cam for the hitch is a great feature and eliminates any wobble. Despite the instructions, once you get it on the hitch, its pretty easy to use.

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.


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.

I did a lot of research looking into platform bike racks before I bought this one and this one doesn't disappoint. The materials of construction are of high quality and the fit and finish are very good! Jane my customer service rep. was very knowledgeable and helpful when discussing this item. She help the order get out that very day even though I called later in the afternoon, I received it two days later. My many thanks to her! This company is very customer focused and I will continue to do business with them as opportunities come available!!

I really like this bike rack, I had some issues with my vehicle not liking the bike rack in the rearview camera. After resolving that issue everything is great. It is easy to put on and takeoff and it is very light. It does a great job of holding the bikes in place. Thanks for the great service.

I have owned many bike racks. The Kuat is the best ! High quality, paint is perfect, nice feature to tighten the rack in the hitch to eliminate rocking back on forth, folds up very nicely and will drop down at a 45 to allow access in a hatchback with bike still on rack

I am a very satisfied customer of etrailer.com and the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 bike rack. The website's videos, photos, and technical information was an invaluable resource when shopping for a bike rack. The ordering process was easy to complete and tracking of the delivery was prompt and accurate. I would not hesitate to use etrailer.com again and would highly recommend them to friends and family.

I purchased this rack from etrailer because I love the fact that they provide so much information. I especially appreciate the videos. I bought this particular rack because of several features. First of all, it only weights 32 pounds. Also, it folds, tilts, and snaps in place without removing pins. It also locks to the hitch and comes with a cable which locks the bikes to the rack. Plus, I like the way it looks. It costs more than a lot of other racks, but I think its worth it.

My order was received on time and seems to be in good shape. I unpacked the bike rack and it seems to be a quality product, very sturdy. Because of work I have not assembled the rack or tried it out yet. Will have to give another review when I get to use it. But it appears that it will solve my bike transportation problems and allow me to use my bike more often. I am planning on taking my bike to work with me, so I can go riding after work. Before I would have to remove the front wheel from the bike to put it inside my Subaru. This should make life a lot easier on me, thanks Frank.

Very well made, strong, yet very light compared to other hitch mounted platform racks. We will use several times per year transporting our bikes to the beach. Much easier to lift onto a folding platform rack than any other type of carrier. Folds up and out of the way...folds down and out of the way to access your trunk. 5 STARS!

Love the Sherpa 2.0 bike rack. It fits all our bikes, is very easy to get on and off the car and it's very stable while driving. Getting the bikes on and off this rack is so much easier than our old rack where the bikes hung from the top tube. etrailer was great and shipped everything quickly. Would definitely but this from etrailer again.



- SH22G
by:

The instructions were perfect, I was able to put together the rack and mount it on my Buick Enclave in less than an hour. My prior bike rack was allowed the bikes to hang on the back of the vehicle, but they would swing and hit the vehicle. For local trips, it was OK, but I'm taking my bicycles from Chicago to Florida, and the Kuat Sherpa is going to work perfectly. While traveling, the bikes will be securely locked on the rack. The paint finish on this rack is amazing, it adds to the looks of the car. I am extremely pleased with the set-up and function of this new bike rack!



- SH22G

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.

It’s a bit heavy. Meaning? It’ll last forever. looks like it’s powder coated. Meaning? Very durable. It took the wife and I to put it together. At age 76, I needed a little help. Easy to put together, but I needed four arms. Time to put it on the car, w/bikes for a test run. My new Volvo needed this type of bike rack and the best part is that it flips down a bit to allow rear access. Great piece if engineering.

That said, we can't exactly test this for every vehicle either. If you are looking for a bike rack that won't block the backup camera while in the stowed position then the best option would be the Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Platform Rack part # TS02G which has a much more open design therefore has a greater chance of not obstructing the view.

    We have not yet had the opportunity to test-fit any of the three racks on a 2011 Veracruz, so I cannot say with certainty what sort of rear-hatch clearance you would have. I can say that of the three racks, the NV would give the best chance of the hatch clearing the bikes. Because the platform section of the rack is not raised as high over the level of the receiver, it will place the bikes further away from the hatch. The NV also features a locking anti-rattle hitch lock and integrated...

That means the # MT70355 adapter will not be compatible as it only has a 3 inch ability and is also only confirmed to fit Class II hitches. You can use the Hitch Adapter 1-1/4" to 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # HTAD to make your Kuat Sherpa 2.0 # SH22G compatible with your Class I hitch. This hitch expander...

  • Saris SuperClamp EX2 vs Kuat Sherpa 2 on a Tesla Model S
    You're correct, the Saris Superclamp, part # SA4025F will do better in comparison to the Kuat Sherpa, part # SH22G when going in and out of a driveway. This will have more to do with the angle of the rise than the actual height of it, as there is a fairly straight line from the straight part of the Superclamp's shank to the end of the wheel cradle, meaning you'll ride along that line when you're at an angle. I would still recommend using your Tesla Model S' suspension to get a little...

  • Comparison of Kuat Sherpa 2.0 and NV 2.0 Base Platform Bike Racks
    The Sherpa 2.0, part # SH22G, and the NV 2.0 Base, part # BA22B, are the 2 inch models that fit a Class III hitch with no adapter. Also, they do both includes locks for the rack to the hitch and for the bikes to the rack. One difference is that the NV 2.0 Base has the option of adding a bike repair stand, part # TDKB, or the 2-bike add-on, part # BA02B. The more notable differences come down to the weight of the racks and the weight of the bikes they each carry. The NV 2.0 Base is...

  • Will Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Allow Rear Door on Honda CR-V to Swing Open
    Typically a platform rack will need to be removed to allow the rear swinging door on any vehicle to fully open. With that being said, there are exceptions and this still might work. I am attaching dimensional photos of the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 # SH22G that you can use to see if you will be able to fully swing open your door as we haven't had the opportunity to test this out yet. If this doesn't allow you to swing open the rear door let me know and I can help you explore other options.

  • Why a Wheel Mounted Platform Bike Rack is Preferred to a Frame Mount
    Generally speaking wheel mount only bike racks are preferred. Especially for people with carbon fiber bike frames since frame mounts aren't recommended at all with them otherwise damage could occur. For other frame designs people still prefer them because there is no frame contact. People with suspension also prefer wheel mount as well. Loading is also easier because when the wheel mount is lowered you just set the bike in the tray, raise the wheel mount and then secure it to the wheel....

  • Can the Kuat Sherpa be Used on a Motorhome/RV
    I do have a solution for you, but Kuat doesn't rate any of their bike racks, including the Sherpa 2.0 # SH22G, for use on a motorhome. When I spoke with my contact he said that about the biggest vehicle they will still cover warranty claims on is a Sprinter. Some bikes racks cannot handle the extra stress of movement on a motorhome/RV because the trailer hitch sits much further back from the rear axle. This causes much more motion which can damage bike racks if they haven't been tested...

  • Differences Between Kuat Sherpa 2.0 and Older Sherpa, Comparison to Thule T2 Classic
    Kuat makes some of the nicest bike racks around the new Kuat Sherpa 2.0 part # SH22G is basically an updated version of the Sherpa # S101 which was highly reviewed by our customers. The new Sherpa is lighter (by 8 lbs for a total weight of 32 lbs), has updated wheel cradles and updated wheel hooks as well.

  • Kuat Sherpa # S101 vs Saris Freedom SuperClamp 2 Bike Rack # SA4025
    When it comes to a battle of build quality and features between the Kuat Sherpa, # SH22G, and the Saris Freedom SuperClamp 2 Bike Rack EX2, # SA4025F, the winner in my opinion is Kuat. Although the Saris Freedom SuperClamp 2 Bike Rack EX, # SA4025F, is a great bike bike, the Kuat Sherpa, # S101, just seems to be built to higher quality standards. Since you also mention that you will be removing the rack after each trip, the tool free installation would be a plus. In order to make...

    In order to use the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack part # SH22G for gray, part # SH22B for black, or part # SH22P for pearl on the back of your 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon, I recommend install the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75673 which is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver tube opening.

  • Does Trailer Hitch Bike Rack Affect Affect Gas Mileage
    Hitch bike racks do not affect fuel mileage of a vehicle like your 2017 Audi Q5. If you had a hitch bike rack mounted in a front hitch that would be a different story, but at the rear of a vehicle they do not add any wind resistance so there is no reduction in mileage. If you were needing a hitch for your 2017 Audi Q5 you'd want the part # 75940 by Draw Tite which is a confirmed fit and would work great with the Kuat Sherpa # SH22G.

    The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 2 Bike Rack, part # SH22G, will fit a 2-inch hitch, so it will fit the hitch on your 2010 Toyota RAV4 as long as you have a 2 inch trailer hitch installed. If you have a Class II, 1-1/4 inch hitch, then you will need part # SH12G.

Measure from the hitch pin hole in the receiver back until you clear the rear spare tire....
