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.

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.

This has been a great purchase, such a breeze using this bike rack. There has been no issues at all with this rack, so easy to mount my bikes and take them out once I get to my destination. Even when there are no bikes mounted I tend to keep the Kuat rack in the hitch. The rack folds up nicely and stays out of the way. The tilt pedal makes it easy to get in the hatch when I need to, just an easy rack to live with on a daily basis. The fit and finish of this rack is still new looking after a year. Just a couple scuff marks here and there, but nothing really noticable unless youre looking for something. So if youre looking for an everyday rack, this is it.



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.

I love the Kuat rack. It’s still performing perfectly after a year of use. I generally don’t travel far to right but rack is always rock solid and I do carry one heavy cruiser and trail back. It still is in great shape and beautiful condition. I do keep it inside and only mount it when going out. It’s light enough that it is easy on and off my Subaru. Love this rack.



by:

This bike rack is awesome! It is incredibly easy to use for one person and holds our bikes very securely. I highly recommend it for it's convenience and reliability. The cable locking feature is an added bonus but I would like to see a heavier cable used; one that has higher cut resistance. Overall, I am very happy with this rack and would purchase again.

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.

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.



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.

Since purchasing our Kuat bike rack from etrailer a year ago my lovely wife and I have made several trips from the NC mountains to the coast with our Beach Crusiers in tow. At 68 I’m no spring chicken anymore and the Kuat rack never fails to amaze me at how easy it is to load our bikes on and off. And I’m so relieved when I look in my rear view mirror and see our bikes barley moving as we wind down the road! And the rack still looks like the day I got it! Thanks etrailer &amp Kuat!



by:

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.

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.

Absolutely love it! This bike rack will mainly be used on the back of our RV to transport our bikes from camp ground to camp ground!

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.



by:

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!



by:

Got the KUAT Sherpa2 from etrailer website, got excellent service from them, got my bike rack in time as they promised. I have been ordering from them because of the quality products they carry.



by:

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.



by:

I am very impressed with the construction quality, appearance and how well the Sherpa rack works. It is very sturdy and stabilizes the bikes really well. I was very pleased with Etrailer’s discounted price and super quick free delivery. Highly recommend the rack and seller!

Still very happy with the Sherpa rack after using it for a year. My neice is a professional cyclist who made the recommendation to us saying Kuat racks are the best. My wife can easily put the bike rack on the car which is great. Would still highly recommend.



by:

Excellent bike rack. Lightweight, easy to put on and off our vehicle. My wife can do it herself. Very easy to load bikes and you can put your mind at ease that they are safe and secure. A bonus is that it looks good too on your vehicle when not carrying your bikes.



by:

Super easy to put together and I love it, keep in mind the max wheelbase of your bikes for this rack is 47in



by:

Very satisfied with the quality, would highly recommend!



by:

Right off the top, this is an awesome bike rack. It's durable, light, and convenient getting my bike or bikes on and off. Easily fold up after bike or bikes are removed at the trail or at home when not in use. The anti-rattle feature is a plus because it make the rack steady too when traveling.

The product is continuing to shine in making it easy to transport my bikes. Often, I carry two bikes to the trail to ride, to keep them both active and maintained. The product has proven over time its durability.



by:

Worth every penny. Can’t have a cheap bike carrier holding your expensive bike. 1,000% would recommend.



by:

The newer bike racks are better built yet lighter. The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 is so much easier to install/deinstall as it is lighter than my previous 10-year-old bike rack. I like that it comes with a cable and lock which works well. It was easy to assemble. I highly recommend it.



by:

Installed this on my 2018 Nissan Leaf. Excellent product and extremely light weight. Makes loading and loading the bikes super easy, I can even get into the hatch with both bike loaded by tilting the rack down. Wish I would have had this years ago!



by:

Looking for a quality light weight rack. This is it! My wife can handle it as well. Not too difficult to assemble and it held the bikes securely. Very pleased with this rack!

Ed

Still extremely pleased with the rack! Used many times and it functions as it should. Light weight is very much appreciated



by:

This is a great rack for our mountain bikes- very study, easy to use (both putting bikes on and off and tilting to access vehicle with bikes on or off), light enough to take off or install easily, lots of great features. It works well on both our Subaru and with our truck mounted camper, travels well on highways and rough roads. We looked at many racks and this one is great. Only 2 small problems- we have to adjust the bike seats down to carry them on the rack and one piece fell off over the tilt but still works without it.

I love this bike rack! I drove from California to Maine last summer with 2 bikes on the back of a Chevy volt. Very sturdy, and easy to get bikes on and off. Also like the way it tilts so I can get into the hatch.



by:

Nice trailer hitch. Would definitely purchase brand this again. The etrailer video makes installation a breeze.

  • Kuat Platform Bike Rack that Can Fit 2 inch and 1-1/4 inch Hitch Size
    The Kuat Sherpa bike racks like the # SH22G are only designed to fit one hitch size. For example this one can only fit a 2 inch hitch size and the part # SH12G can only fit the 1-1/4 inch hitch size and there isn't an adapter made for these racks. So you could go with a new Sherpa or if you wanted something more versatile the Transfer part # KU74FR that you referenced fits both hitch sizes.

For your application I recommend checking out the Yakima PlateMate # Y02713 and the Thule License Plate Holder # TH35JV. The PlateMate is a bit more versatile in how it can be installed, but the Thule option has a light with it so your license plate can be seen at night. Both come with straps to secure the holder and while the straps might...

  • Will a Trailer Hitch Interfere with the Foot Tailgate Activation on a 2018 Mercedes GLA 250
    Installing a trailer hitch, like the Curt # C13197 that you referenced, on a vehicle like your 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA-250 with the foot activated tailgate will slightly interfere with the activation. Typically you will wave your foot right where the hitch receiver sits. When you install a trailer hitch you will simply need to kick straight out to the left or right of the receiver openening to activate your tailgate. Installation instructions have been attached for you to reference, but...

  • Hitch Bike Rack Recommendation for 2016 Winnebago View Class C Motorhome
    I have a bike rack that will work for you, but I cannot recommend the Kuat Sherpa # SH22G for use on your 2016 Winnebago View. Kuat does not approve the use of their Sherpa 2.0 - or other bike racks - on motorhomes or camper trailers. A bike rack is put under a lot more torque and stress when used at the back of a motorhome or camper when compared to being used on a vehicle. Kuat has not tested and designed their bike racks for use under these more strenuous environments. There are not...

  • 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 go...

  • Comparing Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Hitch Bike Rack and Thule T2 Pro XTR
    Both the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 part # SH22G and the Thule T2 Pro XTR part # TH83JV are really great bike racks. What I really about the Kuat is the lighter weight as it weighs 32 lbs whereas the Thule weighs 52 lbs. If you have heavier bikes though the Thule has a higher capacity at 60 lbs per bike whereas the Kuat is only rated for 40 lbs per bike. Aside from that these are both really nice racks that function very similarly and are widely considered to be the nicest around. I attached review...

  • Recommendation For Best Kuat Platform Rack That Works With 2018 Subaru Outback and Draw-Tite Hitch
    Both the Kuat NV hitch platform bike rack, Item # NV22G, and the Sherpa hitch platform bike rack, Item # SH22G, are versatile racks that hold 2 bikes by the wheels, are durable, and are easy to use. Both will work with your Draw-Tite Hitch, Item # 75673. As you consider which is best for you, make sure to find your clearance from the hitch pin hole so that you get a rack that easily clears the back of your 2018 Subaru Outback. The Kuat NV Item # NV22G hitch bike rack offers 7-inches...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2015 Subaru Forester for Installing Kuat Sherpa Bike Rack
    If you wanted to use the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 part # SH22G that you referenced on your 2015 Subaru Forester you would need to have a 2 inch hitch installed on the vehicle. For that you'd need the part # 75876 which is a 2 inch hitch confirmed to fit the vehicle.

  • Will the Kuat Sherpa Bike Rack Work With a Bike That Has 49 Inch Wheelbase
    The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack part # SH22G is only compatible with bikes that have a wheelbase up to 47" so it will not work for a bike that has a 49" wheelbase. That said, I do have a very similar option that is just as good and it will work with a 49" wheelbase, the Thule T2 Pro XTR 2 Bike Platform Rack part # TH83JV. The T2 like the Sherpa has a wheel mount design, comes with both hitch/bike locks, and folds for storage/tilts for hatch access. Unlike the Sherpa, you can...

  • What Platform Rack will Work With a Truck and Allow you to Open The Tailgate
    To allow you to open the tailgate on any truck the way to go is with the RockyMounts BackStage 2 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches part # RKY10002. As you will see in the video I linked for you this allows you to swing the bike and bike rack out of the way so you have full access to your truck bed. It is a really well built easy to use rack and will carry bikes up to 60 lbs with tires up to 5" wide anywhere from 20"-29" so it covers a very wide range of bike types. It can be used with plenty...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for a 2019 Nissan Murano
    Hitch mount bike racks are easier to install on the vehicle as well as install your bikes on, plus the rack itself won't touch your vehicle so I definitely recommend going that route for your 2019 Nissan Murano. For a trailer hitch I highly recommend the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98907 because it's the only option that has the matte black finish. Not only is this type of finish becoming more popular, it serves a purpose too because it hides dents and scratches better than...

  • Bike Rack and Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon
    The Kuat Sherpa 2.0, part # SH22G, is a great bike rack that would work well for you on your 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon. All you would need is a hitch. For that I would recommend the Draw-Tite part # 75673 as it has been confirmed to fit your vehicle and is our most popular option we carry.

  • Replacement for Damaged Thule Helium 3-Bike Rack
    Unfortunately, Thule doesn't offer the major components like the bike rack arms as replacement parts so your best bet will be to replace the rack. The current version of the Thule Helium Pro 3 bike rack is part # TH9043PRO. A 2-bike platform rack like the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 you'd looked at, part # SH22G would also make a fine replacement. Platform racks are easier to load than hanging-style racks are, and the Sherpa 2.0 would allow you to tilt the rack rearward with the bikes on the rack...

  • Recommended Lightweight and Easy to Install 2 Bike Platform Rack for City Use
    The Hollywood Racks Destination 2 Bike Platform Rack # HLY94FR is a very easy to use carrier that weighs only 20 lbs and is designed to be folded up against the vehicle when not in use. The anti-rattle hitch lock knob is easy to use and won't require a socket wrench for installation and removal. The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" Hitches # SH12G or the 2 inch hitch version # SH22G also has some perks. It does have the anti-rattle knob attachment, but the nicer elements...
