Kuat Transfer 1-Bike Rack

The Transfer platform-style bike rack lets you carry 1 bike on the back of your vehicle. The rack holds your bike by the wheel - not the frame - to protect your paint. The low tray height takes the strain out of mounting your bike on the rack, and the pivoting cradle and ratcheting wheel hook make loading your bike quicker and easier when compared with a rack that has a center post and frame hook. A foot pedal lets you tilt the rack with your bike loaded for access to your vehicle's rear cargo area. And the pedal lets you fold the rack up for storage, too.


Perfect Fit Adjustment System

The Transfer has a Perfect Fit adjustment system that lets you carry your bike safely and securely without the fear of damaging the frame. The system includes a ratcheting hook that holds your bike firmly by the front wheel, adjustable front wheel cradle, and pivoting rear cradle that secures your rear wheel to the rack. This hook and adjustable cradle ensure a perfect fit for each of your bikes' body styles.


Ratcheting Hook

The ratcheting hook secures your bikes' front wheel to the rack. Place your bike on the cradle then simply slide the hook down over your wheel until it clicks in place. The hook holds your bike firmly in place without contacting the frame. Press the thumb release button on the hook to slide it up and remove your bike.


Adjustable Front-Wheel Cradle

The front cradle has a bolt locator tab that allows the pitch to be adjusted. In its upright position the cradle sits at the optimal position for holding a normal-size bike. Use the included Allen key to flip the bolt locator tab upside down. This allows the cradle to sit in a position that tilts more toward the center of the rack so that the tire of a children's bike will fit snugly.


Pivoting Rear-Wheel Cradle

The Transfer has a pivoting cradle that adjusts to your bikes' rear wheel on the rack. Rotate the cradle out to accommodate a bike with a wheelbase up to 47" long or rotate it toward the center of the rack to accommodate a smaller bike. A ratcheting strap secures your wheel to the cradle. A strap extender kit (sold separately) is available to convert the cradle for use with a fat bike.


Spring-Loaded Foot Lever

The spring-loaded foot lever is easily accessible even with your bike loaded. No more crawling through your bike or squeezing between the rack and the vehicle to hit the tilt release lever.


The foot lever lets you easily tilt the rack down to allow access to your vehicle's rear cargo area - even with the bike loaded. 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. This makes it easier to park in small lots at the trail head or in cramped parking garages, and it keeps the rack out of the way of other vehicles and riders.


Adapter Sleeve with Threaded Hitch Pin

A removable sleeve on the shank lets you convert the rack for use with 1-1/4" hitches. The rack also comes with an anti-rattle device incorporated into the shank to reduce vibration and noise in the hitch for a smooth, quiet ride. Simply tighten the hitch bolt with the included 3/4" wrench.


There is also an optional cable lock and hitch lock (sold separately) that lets you secure your bike to the rack and the rack to your vehicle.

Other than assembling this, it is a fantastic product that does not wobble, holds my 47 inch wheelbase Trek pure sport. I would’ve given it five stars if it had included the lock which is an additional purchase. Shame on Kuat for that. 673412

This is exactly what I needed for my Chevy Sonic. I installed a Draw-Tite Sport hitch from etrailer (installed by myself) and ordered the Kuat Transfer one bike platform rack. The assembly was easy with the detailed instructions. It seems solid and does not rattle or rock around with the anti-rattle hitch lock. The bicycle is easily added and removed. I will add reflective tape so that it is visible to drivers behind me. 706860

The carrier was a simple assembly and install. Well written instructions and all tools were included. Operates really simply and fits my 2018 Sentra SV just as it should with the Draw Tite receiver I purchased here. Had a few questions for the etrailer folks and all were answered quickly and courteously. Couldn't be happier with my new carrier! 619136

Great rack except the 1"1/4 is extremely loose in the hitch..It would flop all over if it didn't have the screw hitch pin!!! Seems like Kuat could have done much better with the tolerance. 598795

We do offer anti-rattle devices that will tighten up the space in between the shank of your accessory and the hitch receiver. I recommend roadmaster quiet hitch for 1 1/4 inch hitches part # RM-061-125

Just received product yesterday. etrailer.com is always awesome to deal with and everyone is so friendly. Opened the box and notice the packaging could have been a little better from Kuat. There were some scratched plastic pieces. I know they will get scratched, but at least let me do it. :) Once all the parts were out, it looked well thought out and easy to install. I watched many videos on the assembly and noticed a couple of things not mentioned in the instructions. Nothing big, just a few small things. One of the things I didn't like were how the end caps installed. When you tighten them down so they don't flop around, the caps don't line up with the frame. I ended taking them back out and installing 2 small washers inside to fill the gap when tightening them back down. Installing on the car was very easy. You do need to use some muscle when tightening down the anti-rattle sleeve to the car. Mine is a 1-1/4 hitch. I bought the locking pin (hitch-car). It is pretty loose on the pin. Would have thought it would be a little better. I bought this rack for my wife. It is nice that it is not very heavy and there isn't much adjustment for the bike. Just put the bike on the rack and strap it down. 592130

So glad to have my transfer. I drive a smaller vehicle and wanted something that looked good on my car and held my bike securely without touching the frame. This definitely fits the bill. I have already put in some miles with confidence my bike is safe. I do wish there was a way to secure without cables locks, which can be cut easily. Maybe a place to secure with a d lock or a lock on the rachet arm. . Other than that I love it. Assembly was a breeze and removal/ attaching is easy to take the car thru a car wash. 643068

Another great product from Kuat!!! eTrailer's video reviews were very helpful in making my decision. Reasonable shipping for a large item too. Haven't needs to use their customer service yet, Kuat stuff is that good, but it i needed anything about the product i would contact them directly. They are very good with the customer service as well. It's comfort to do business with a quality retailer that sells quality product from quality manufacturers. Covered all the way around. 588187

I absolutely love this rack! Had to call and get the Fat bike kit sent, so that took and extra couple days, they had Kuat send them instead of taking them out of their own stock, must have been a mess up in shipping department? Holds my Pugsley solid and the Specialized Epic quite nicely. Easy on easy off, no damage to the bikes or the car. 429080

Even better than expected. If you’re looking for a sturdy, well-constructed 3-bike Carrier that folds up for storage and down to access the tailgate, you won’t be disappointed with this product. The rack arrived quickly and without damage. The number of pre-assembled parts made it look like it’d be a 2 hour project to assemble but I had mine together within 25-30 minutes (the assembly instructions are very intuitive). Full satisfaction with the product and, as always, with etrailer. 667014

Review from a similar Kuat Transfer in Hitch Bike Racks


If it was not for the heavy weight of the rack, it would receive 5 stars. It’s solid, well built and easy to use. I like how easy it is to load your bike and have it secured. It only takes a minute if that. We’ve taken many long road trips with it and there is no worry about the bikes. I love the available lock kit that is incorporated into the design. My wife is 5’-2” and is fit, but still struggles to move and mount the rack to the hitch. Once installed it is a breeze, but getting it there is hard due to the weight. It fits well on our 2016 4Runner and when the bikes are installed and the rack is folded down, we can access our rear hatch. Great rack and I highly recommend as long as you and yours can handle the weight. 671791

Review from a similar Kuat Transfer in Hitch Bike Racks


Assembly of this rack was fairly straight forward. Instructions consisted mainly of illustrations. I had one issue during assembly where I overtightened bolts and fatigued plastic mating surfaces. The directions gave no caution or guidance regarding how tight to make things. I thought, tighter is always better (wrong). Kuat customer service was very helpful and shipped out replacement parts no questions asked. I am totally satisfied with the rack function, fit and ease of use. I have yet to take long trips but, in local use, it has performed admirably. I was also totally satisfied with etrailer's order fulfillment and customer support. 566579

Loving the Kaut Transfer 2. Have taken 2 1400 mile trips with no issues. Every time I loadunload our bikes I am impressed with the ease of use and quality of the product. I find it easy to put onoff the car ~5 min. job 2 Bikes are loaded and ready to go in another 5. Must say this purchase was a good decision. Fully satisfied.

Review from a similar Kuat Transfer in Hitch Bike Racks


The 2 bike Kuat Transfer arrived in 3 days, as promised by Noah at Etrailer- great job! Directions were good, and I liked that the different nuts, bolts and hardware were packaged in sections based on their use, and that they provide all the tools, including a box wrench to bolt the carrier on to the hitch. I did have one question and got a service rep from Kuat, who explained what was unclear. The bike rack is really solid and easy to use. It folds up close to the rear of my Murano when not in use, and the foot release also lets the bike rack fold forward to open the hatchback door, even with the 2 bikes on! Etrailer has the best price, also got the hitch from them, same fast delivery- highly recommended! 576253

Review from a similar Kuat Transfer in Hitch Bike Racks


I love this bike rack. I am a 55 year old women with a 14 year old daughter who does triathlons. We are both small people. Manhandling a couple of bikes above our heads make the thought of going riding intimidating. This rack solved all of those problems. You lift the bike approx. a foot and push the lever arm onto the front tire and away you go. In addition, the rack folds up and down with one push on the handle so the trunk is completely accessible if you leave the rack on the back of the car ( I drive a Subaru Forrester SUV) instead of taking it on and off after each ride. Putting it together took awhile but was not rocket science, but you only have to do it once. It is kind of heavy when you put it in the hitch, but it is heavy duty and I have no fears that it will break or get damaged. Plan to use this for a long time. 407323

  • Recommended Single Bike Platform Rack for Bike with Full Fenders
    The Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Platform Rack # TS01B will allow you to carry a bike with fenders if they are mounted in a way that will allow the clamping force needed to secure the bike without damage to the fender. With plastic fenders I don't recommend using that bike rack as it could deform your fender. For your RadCity Commuter bike, I recommend the Rola Convoy 1 Bike Platform Rack for 1-1/4" Hitches # 59307 or if you have a 2 inch hitch receiver # 59308. This will allow you to secure...

  • Can the Kuat Transfer 2 Be Broken Down Into the Kuat Transfer 1
    The Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Platform Rack part # TS01B itself would not obstruct the view of your rear view camera while folded up or down but the bike you mount onto this while folded down likely would. This will be the case for pretty much any bike rack you mount on your 2019 Subaru Forester. The Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Platform Rack does come with the 1-1/4" to 2" adapter. The Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Platform Rack part # TS02B is pretty much the same as the Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Platform Rack...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Electra Townie with Step Through Frame and Fenders
    The Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Platform Rack # TS01B that you referenced is an excellent carrier but I don't recommend it for your Electra Townie because of the fenders that you mentioned. The Kuat Transfer will need to clamp down right where that front fender is which would likely lead to a unsecure connection or maybe even damage to the fender. All of the 1-bike racks we have available feature a wheel mount design that would run into the same issue so your best option is going to be with...

  • How To Lock the Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Platform Rack
    In order to add locks to the Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Platform Rack part # TS01B the best option is to use the Cable Lock and Hitch Lock for Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Rack part # ATSCLK11011 as this gives you both a lock for the bike rack and the bike which uses the same key. The Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Platform Rack will work perfectly with the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24914 on your Mazda 3 Hatchback.

    We have fat bike racks that will work great for your bike that has tires that are 4.8 inches wide but even with the Phat tire adapter part # APBK the Kuat Transfer part # TS01B can only accommodate up to a 4.5 inch wide tire. For a similar platform bike rack that only touches the bikes at the tires and can fit up to a 5 inch wide tire we have the Thule T2 Pro XTB part # TH9034XT for if you have a 2 inch hitch or the part # TH9035XTS for a 1-1/4 inch hitch.

  • Will Kuat Transfer 1 Fit on 2012 Toyota RAV4 with Draw Tite Hitch Installed
    When we installed the Draw Tite hitch part # 75235 on a 2012 Toyota RAV4 just like yours we found that from the center of it's hitch pin hole out to the furthest point out on the rear spare measures 8 inches. From the center of the hitch pin hole of the Kuat Transfer part # TS01B to the nearest portion of the bike rack measures 7-1/2 inches, but the center of the wheel cradles is several inches past that which means you'd have plenty of room for the rack and a bike loaded onto it.

  • Will Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Rack Obstruct View of Backup Camera
    The Kuat Single Transfer part # TS01B would slightly obstruct the view of the backup camera of your 2018 Chevy Volt but for the most part you'd be looking over the top of your bike if it was loaded and through the frame and you'd still be able to see behind you. If the rack wasn't loaded with a bike you'd basically have a totally unobstructed view.

    I do have a way for you to determine fit of the Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Platform Rack part # TS01B on a 2008 Toyota RAV4 but you will need to measure as we have not yet have the chance to test this our self.

  • Comparing Thule T1 Bike Rack and Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Rack
    Actually the Kuat Transfer 1 part # TS01B you mentioned is lighter than the Thule T1 part # TH9041 by 3 lbs. It weighs 26 lbs and the T1 weighs 29. It's not a huge difference but if you prefer the tilting mechanism of the Kuat and aren't a fan of the latch system on the Thule I'd say the Kuat is your overall best choice! It's a big hit with our other customers who have tried it as well so I know you'll really like it. I attached a review video link for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • Compatibility of Kuat Transfer Single Bike Rack for Fat Bike Compatibility with Thinner Tire Bikes
    The Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Platform Rack for Fat Bike - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount # TS01B-FB is designed to be compatible with fat bike tires up to 4-1/2 inches wide but it will even work with the skinny road bike tires. If you don't have a fat bike, you may want to use the similar # TS01B and then purchase the longer straps at a different time.

  • Does Rola Offer the Convoy 1 Single Bike Rack for Both Hitch Sizes
    Rola makes two versions of the Convoy 1 single bike rack, a version that fits 1-1/4 inch hitches like part # 59307 and a version that fits 2 inch hitches like the # 59308. They do not offer a way to have either rack fit the other hitch size. So basically there isn't an adapter that would allow the 1-1/4 inch rack to fit a 2 inch hitch. We do have the Kuat Transfer 1 part # TS01B which can fit both hitch sizes with it's included hitch adapter as well. I attached a couple review videos...

  • Kuat Transfer 1 Anti-Rattle Capability for a 2019 Toyota Highlander
    The Kuat Transfer 1 # TS01B comes with the anti-rattle bolt. If you want the Cable Locks and Hitch Lock that is sold separately in part # ATSCLK11011 which is a lock that connects directly to the anti-rattle bolt. This way you gain a lock and keep your anti-rattle device. The Kuat Transfer 1 fits your Highlander's 2 inch hitch out of the box with the included adapter. The below video is a great resource showing how the anti-rattle bolt can reduce hitch movement and rattle.

  • Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Platform Rack Ground Clearance On Mazda CX-5
    Yes, The Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Platform Rack part # TS01B is a great option for ground clearance in hilly areas because the shank has a 7-7/8" rise compared to the other options that my have straight shanks. The Kuat will sit up a little higher than the other options. We have tested the Kuat Transfer on a 2018 Mazda CX-5 and you should have about 18 inches of ground clearance, give or take depending on the hitch. That is plenty of enough clearance to go up a steep incline without dragging...
