Kuat Transfer 2-Bike Rack

The Transfer platform-style bike rack lets you carry 2 fat bikes on the back of your vehicle. The rack holds your bikes by the wheels - not the frames - to protect your paint. The low tray height takes the strain out of mounting your bikes on the rack, and the pivoting cradles and ratcheting wheel hooks make loading your bikes quicker and easier when compared with a rack that has a center post and frame hooks. A foot pedal lets you tilt the rack with bikes 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

Kuat Transfer 2-Bike Rack

The Transfer has a Perfect Fit adjustment system that lets you carry your bikes safely and securely without the fear of damaging the frames. The system includes ratcheting hooks that hold your bikes firmly by the front wheels, adjustable front wheel cradles, and pivoting rear cradles that secure your rear wheels to the rack. These hooks and adjustable cradles ensure a perfect fit for each of your bikes' body styles.


Ratcheting Hooks

Kuat Transfer Ratcheting Hooks

The ratcheting hooks secure your bikes' front wheels to the rack. Place your bikes on the cradles then simply slide the hooks down over your wheels until they click in place. The hooks hold your bikes firmly in place without contacting the frames. Press the thumb release button on each hook to slide them up and remove your bikes.


Security Straps and Adjustable Front-Wheel Cradles

Kuat Transfer front wheel straps

The Transfer has nylon-webbed cam-buckle straps that help secure your fat bike tires to the front cradles. Simply wrap the straps around the wheels and cradles and secure them with hook-and-loop fasteners.


Kuat Transfer adjustable front wheel cradlesKuat Transfer Adjustable Front-Wheel Cradles

You can also adjust the pitch of the front cradles using the bolt locator tab at the base of each cradle. In their upright position the cradles sit at the optimal angle for holding a normal-size bike. Use the included Allen key to flip the bolt locator tabs upside down. This allows the cradles to sit at angles that tilt more toward the center of the rack so that the tires of a child's bike will fit snugly.


Extra-Long Ratcheting Straps and Pivoting Rear-Wheel Cradles

Kuat Transfer Bolt Locator Tab

The Transfer has extra-long plastic straps to secure your fat bike wheels to the cradles. It also has pivoting cradles that adjust to hold your bikes' rear wheels on the rack. Rotate the cradles out to accommodate bikes with wheelbases up to 47" long or rotate them toward the center of the rack to accommodate smaller bikes.


Spring-Loaded Foot Lever

Kuat Transfer Spring-loaded foot lever

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


Kuat Transfer Spring-loaded foot lever

The foot lever lets you easily tilt the rack down to allow access to your vehicle's rear cargo area - even with the bikes loaded. It leaves both hands free so that you can lower the rack in a controlled manner.


Folds Against Vehicle

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

Kuat Transfer Adapter Sleeve

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 (PTSCLK12 - sold separately) that lets you secure your bike to the rack and the rack to your vehicle.

Product was packed great. Easily assembled and installed into my hitch. Bike is easy to install onto the rack and bike is secured during transport. I have a SUV and it is very easy to tilt the rack with bike on rack to open the rear hatch. Would recommend this rack to everyone. The price is very reasonable. 449983

As per prior experiences with etrailer, my Kuat Transfer two bike rack with fat bike kit arrived quickly, completely and in perfect shape! And, I am VERY happy with the rack. It fits perfectly on my faithful old Subaru Baja and accommodates nicely the car (truck?) tailgate operation. Our road bikes, cruiser, 27.5 mtb and fat bikes all ride smoothly and securely - even on our local, horribly rough cobble stone streets. And, by the way, the fat bike has 26 X 4.5 tires. That tire size was a concern since some of the rack specs were contradictory as to whether 4.25 or 4.5 was the widest compatible tire. Whoever Kuat are, they've made a huge impression on me - the rack comes packaged like a Xmas present! The overall quality and design are awesome - even if I didn't own a bicycle, I would want the rack just because it improves the looks of my car so much! And finally, but don't tell anyone - it is compatible with my old screw-on, locking hitch pin! Thank you etrailer and thank you Kuat! 433271

Im glad I went so over the top on my review, because the rack has been absolutely perfect! I keep it installed permanently for biking throughout the year including severe cold and snow. It looks and works as well as when it was new!

Fits all all 9 bikes I own, skinny - fat tire. Bikes held secure on 5000 mile road trip. U-shape frame makes it convenient and ergonomic to load bikes. Tire cradles adjust so no interference of seats and bars between bikes. For additional safety (3 bikes obscure car tail lights a bit) I added red Bike reflectors on ends of frame, red reflective tape to hold-down bars and rigged a hitch receiver brake light to the rack center. I purchased the Kuat cable locks and hitch lock. Cables are 2 - 3” too short to lock frame of some of my bikes. Cable length design is limited by the length of the hold-down bars. Cable locks require key turn to lock, cable ends won’t just push in. Hitch lock came without dust cover so Arizona sand and Wisconsin winter salt get in the lock. Also bought a Swagman cable to lock all bikes to the hitch pin / lock. 483618

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

Quality and kept promises. Thanks etrailer!! Our Kuat 2 bike rack and extension straps for our fat tire bikes arrived on time and as promised. A boxed end wrench and hex head tools are included. Assembly went ok but could have been a little easier (for this SAE, not mm, guy) if the instructions had the actual screw sizes depicted in scale. Process of elimination and they all got used in the correct locations. And a second pair of hands was helpful in keeping the frame in place while I installed the front wheel ratchet arm assembly onto its pivot mount. All parts fit together correctly and tightly, indicating to me that the design and quality of the product wasn't shoddy or forgotten. The included 2" adapter on the hitch mount went into the receiver on my truck and with the included mounting screw and wrench, it tightened nicely. Only one person was needed to lift the complete rack and start and tighten the hitch pin in. The frames horseshoe design allows you room to walk the lifted bike onto the tire cradles without banging your shins. Without any effort you can then balance the bike while you swing the ratchet arm over and onto the front tire, wiggle the tires into their cradles, attach the safety straps, and your ready to go. It seemed very stable while traveling only 16 smooth road miles on its first journey. Comes off easily and hangs on the garage wall waiting for next weekend and a planned 185 mile one way road trip. 775884

I have had the bike rack for a year now and I have no big complaints about it. It takes a little practice taking it on and off the car by yourself, but it's not hard. Assembly was easy as well. Here are some things to keep in mind with purchase: - Get the fat tire kit if you have a fat tire. Even with it, the front tire "slot" is not large enough for fat tires. They will shift a little when driving, so make sure everything is secured tight! - The bars now squeak loudly when I am moving them up and down. But I'd rather have them squeak than be loose. - Make sure to angle the back tire bar at about 70 degrees. You don't want to go down too far because the tire will shift when driving. This rack is perfect for regular mountain bikes. It isn't made necessarily for fat tires or road bikes, but I have carried all three on this rack without any issues. Highly recommend this rack for its sturdiness, durability, and price value. 700651

I am unable to load 12 inches kids bike on this Rack.... so much disappointing as I got this rack so that I can go with my 3 year son, please help. 646712


Comments
The smallest wheel diameter this bike rack is compatible with is a 20 inch wheel, due to the span of the wheel cradles. I have checked with Kuat, and at this time they do now have an adapter that would help close the gap for bikes smaller than 12 inch wheels.

Review from a similar Transfer in Hitch Bike Racks


As a single women I was looking for something easy & not heavy. I like being able to just pick up the bike & place it on however if you really click the hook part down hard its impossible to release the mechanism. I had to use the end of a screw driver against my chest OUCH to put enough pressure to release. I took it to my local bike shop he had quite a time also when he really locked it down took 2 of his thumbs together to release. So my dilemma is I can only secure it like 1-2 clicks down which it will move & I will have to use a bungi cord for more security. Wish the release part worked better. 746090

  • Recommended Bike Rack and Fat Tire Adapter That Will fit 4.8" Tires
    There are some great bike racks and racks with adapters that will work with your 4.8" tires, though the Kuat Transfer 2 # TS02G-FB will only accept tires up to 4.5" wide. I highly recommend checking out the Kuat NV 2.0 # BA22B, which comes with an adapter to carry one fat bike with 4.8" tires, though if you needed to carry a pair of fat bikes you could add the Phat Bike Adapter Kit for Kuat Bike Racks # APBK.

    I will be happy to make some recommendations for you. But keep in mind that any loaded bike rack is going to block the view of the backup camera on your 2018 Ford Escape. But there are some great options that will only sort of block the view when they are not loaded.

  • Difference between Kuat TS02G and Kuat TS02G -FB
    The fat bike version of the Kuat Transfer part # TS02G-FB basically just has longer straps as the wheel cradles are the same size as the non-fat bike version part # TS02G. For your application I'd go with the fat bike version since you have a single fat bike.

The HoldUp EVO fits 2" hitches and can carry bikes with tires that are up to 5" wide with wheel diameters between 20" and 29" and up to 50 lbs. This is a wheel-mount rack that has many of what I like to call quality-of-life features, including simple installation in your hitch with the turn of the anti-rattle knob.

I am not sure if that would make much of a difference but it would be an improvement.

  • Can Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Platform Rack # TS02G Carry Bike with 3 inch Wide Tires Without Adapter
    Your 3 inch tire will fit perfectly into the wheel slots of the Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Platform Rack # TS02G without using the adapter part # APBK. The adapter is only needed if the tire is fatter than 3 inches. You are right at the limit, but it's a "comfortable" limit so you'd be totally fine. If you think someday you will own a fat bike I'd go with the part # TS02G-FB now even though it's not needed, but otherwise you'd be fine with the standard # TS02B.

  • Tire Width Compatibility with Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Racks TS02G & TS02G-FB
    The difference between the Kuat Transfer part # TS02G and # TS02G-FB is the length of the strap like you mentioned as well as the width of the wheel trays. The fat bike version has much wider wheel trays to accept the fat tires as well as longer straps to reach around them. The fat bike version will be what you need. You can fit non-fat bikes in this rack as well. It basically just offers the ability to fit the wider tires as well as more standard size ones.

It's also lighter weight at 37 lbs too. I attached a review video for more info on this as well.
