Stylish and lightweight Kuat Trio

The versatile, stylish Trio is built with a unique 3 Way fork mount that lets you carry 1 bike with a 9-mm quick-release skewer, a 15-mm thru-axle fork, or a 20-mm thru-axle fork on your vehicle's roof. The curved, aluminum wheel tray is sturdy yet lightweight, and it has a sliding rear-wheel strap that lets you carry bikes with different wheelbases. The Trio also includes universal mounting brackets and a built-in cable lock.

3 Way Fork Mount with Quick-Release Skewer

Kuat Trio 3 Way adaptability

The Trio's 3 Way fork mount system lets you transport a bike with a 9-mm quick-release skewer, a 15-mm thru-axle fork, or a 20-mm thru-axle fork.

Kuat Trio built-in 9-mm quick-release skewer

The rack includes a 9-mm quick-release skewer. To mount a bike using the skewer, simply open the orange quick-release lever, drop your bike's fork onto the skewer, tighten the nut, and close the lever.

Kuat Trio built-in 15-mm thru-axle cylinder

To carry a bike with a 15-mm thru-axle fork, remove the Trio's 9-mm quick-release skewer and insert your bike's existing thru-axle skewer through the orange cylinder.

Kuat Trio 20-mm adapter

If your bike has a 20-mm thru-axle fork, simply remove the orange cylinder and replace it with the included black cylinder. To remove the cylinder, loosen the bolt in the nose of the rack with the included Allen key. Then slide the black cylinder into place and re-tighten the bolt. If you have a fat bike with a 15-mm or 20-mm thru-axle skewer, you will need an adapter (sold separately) to mount your bike to the rack.

Sliding Rear-Wheel Cradle with Ratcheting Strap

Kuat Trio sliding rear-wheel cradle

The Trio's sliding rear-wheel cradle lets you transport bikes with a wide variety of wheelbases. The cradle slides freely along grooves in the wheel tray - just move the cradle into position underneath your bike's rear tire and tighten the included ratcheting strap. Release buttons on both sides enable you to free the rear wheel of your bike no matter what side of the vehicle the rack is mounted on. You can also reverse the strap so it's easier to use - just remove it and re-insert it with the finger loop on the side of the wheel cradle closest to the edge of your vehicle.

Integrated Cable Lock

Kuat Trio cable lock

The Trio's built-in cable lock deploys from the rear of the rack, threads through your bike frame and rear wheel, and locks back on itself. The 1/4" thick braided steel cable has a thick nylon coating to protect your frame and rear wheel from scratches and scuffs. The lock stores inside the wheel tray when not in use.

Universal Mounting Hardware

Kuat Trio universal mounting hardware

The Trio's easy-to-use mounting hardware is designed to work with most crossbars - square, round, aero, elliptical, or factory. The head of the rack mounts to your crossbars with 2 U-bolts and 4 hex-head safety nuts. The U-bolts wrap around your crossbars and slide into holes in the bottom of the rack head. To secure the U-bolts in place, insert the hex-head safety nuts into the holes in the top of the rack and tighten them over the threaded ends of the U-bolts with the included Allen key. The U-bolts are coated with rubberized nylon to prevent them from scratching and scuffing your crossbars.

The Trio rear universal mounting bracket

To attach the rear mounting bracket, thread it onto the wheel-tray mounting bolts until it's snug against the bottom of your crossbar and tighten it in place with hand knobs. This rear mounting assembly can be adjusted along a track in the bottom of the wheel tray to accommodate different roof rack crossbar spreads. The mounting bracket is coated with a thick layer of rubberized nylon to help absorb road shock and minimize vibration, and it helps to protect your crossbar from scratches and scuffs.

Video Transcript for Kuat TRIO Roof Fork Mount Bike Rack Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Kuat trio roof mounted bike rack part number RU01. This bike rack has universal mounting hardware and fits almost 80crossbar configuration. It's slim aerodynamic design looks great on any vehicle. It's made of a lightweight aluminum and has a black powder coat finish and is durable and rustproof. It has a carrying capacity of one bike and a weight capacity of 45 pounds. It works with round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars.

Keep in mind, you would at least need a minimum crossbar spread of19-5/8". The Kuat trio also has a sliding wheel tray that will slide up and down the base of the back rack to accommodate difference bike lengths. Here at the back of the bike rack, is a built-in cable lock that you can pull out, wrap aroundyour bike and lockitback in itself. Now that we've gone over some of the features and specs of the Kuat trio, we'll go ahead and show you how to load up a bike. First, you need to double check to make sure our skewers lose so that our forks canslide down on to it. We can thenundo the tray strap at the rear of the bike rack. We'll take our bike and place it up on to the bike rack, sliding the forksdown onto the skewer.

We can thentighten downthe skewer and clamp it down. Now, we'll go ahead and slide the wheel tray back underneath the rear tire and clamp it down using the strap.Now thatour bike all loaded up, we'll go ahead and lockit to the vehicle by pulling out ourintegrated cable lock and lock on our bike to the rear, we'll bring it around the frame of the bike and hook it back into itself. Now that we've gone over some of the special features of the Kuat trio, we'll go ahead and show you how to install. We'll first start off by placing our bike rack up on to our roof rack crossbars. Now, we're going to go ahead and install the bike rack on the passenger side of the vehicle so you'll notice that the skewer is flipped around. Then, we'll need to position these two sets of holes here at the top portion of the bike rack to fit on both sides of the bar.

We'll then take the rubber coated steel u-bolts, go to the underside of the bar up into the pre-drilled holes of the front portion of the bike rack. Next, we'll take the black security nuts and thread it down onto the u-bolt. We'll then go ahead and repeat the same process for the other u-bolt. We'll now go ahead and move to the rear of the bike rack. Now, here at the rear, we'll swing the rubber coated steelbracket around the underside of the rear bar and insert the other black bolt.

We'll insert it into the pre-drilled hole of the rubber coated bracket. With this in place, we'll take our black wing nut and thread it on to the bolt. With this on, we'll go ahead and tightenit down to secure the rear part of the bike rack to the rear bar. Next, we'll take the tightening tool to tighten on the black security bolts. One of the special features of the Kuat trio is that it has the ability to carry bikes with 9-mm quick-release skewers and bikes with 15-mm and 20-mm thru-axles. We'll go ahead and show you how to switch these skewers around to carry the different styles of bikes.Now, this application right here with the orange tube inside of the bike rack and the skewer in is for9-mm quick-release skewers. To switch out for 15-mmthru-axle bikes, we'll go ahead and simply remove the skewer. Now, for both 15-mm thru-axles and 20-mm thru-axles, you will needto use the skewer from the bike. Now, the orange tube in the bike rackfor 15-mm thru-axles, you'll take the bike and set it down on to the tube here. You can then slide the skewer in and tighten it down. Now for bikes with 20-mm thru-axles, we can use the included Allen wrench to loosen up this bolt here. This bolt is going to loosen up the tension on this orange tube and allow you to remove it. We can then take the 20-mm adapter and slide it through the opening of the bike rack. Then take the included Allenbolt and tighten down the bolt at the head of the carrier to tighten up this adapter.Then youll use the 20-mm skewer that comes with your bike to fit on to this adapter. Now, with the 9-mm skewer in the bike rack, we'll go ahead and show you how the forks slide down on to it. With the front wheel removed and the axle staying in the front rim, these cut-offwillfit directly down on to the skewer. We can thentighten down the skewer and clamp it down. Now thatwith our skewer removed, we'll go ahead and show you how the forkswill rest on the 15-mm thru-axle adapter. We'll then take the 15-mm adapter to slide it through the axle of the bike and clamp it down. Now with our bike are all loaded up and locked, we'll go ahead and take it outfor a test drive and show you how it looks driving down the road. With that, that will complete today's review of the Kuat trio roof mounted bike rack part number RU01.

I was excited to use the Kuat Trio because it has taken a different approach to locking. With every other roof bike rack I have used there is no way to lock the rear wheel. Kuat solved this by using a cable lock that can wrap around the bike frame and rear wheel. A simple solution for protecting your rear wheel from theft. The rack is very easy to install, but not the easiest, with 4 allen bolts and 2 wing nuts. The racks with the speed link are just a bit quicker to get on your roof. The Trio will take maybe one or two extra minutes to set up. After getting the rack on my roof I found it to be exceptionally solid, no worries about putting my beloved bikes on it. I was a bit skeptical of the rear wheel strap having both sides connected in one piece. But after putting a bike on I understood why Kuat did it. When you slide the wheel strap into position the other side of the wheel strap is perfectly aligned, you don't have to reach underneath to find and position the opposite side. The on my road bike I have Zipp 404s and the strap did fit over it with about 3 clicks to spare. With wheels deeper than the 404 you will want to add the strap extender. The skewer for the front fork is a great design. Out of the box it works with quick release and thru axle forks, no adapters! The design on the rack makes it so that it looks the best to have the rack on the driver side of the car. There is a cutout section with the Kuat logo and the skewer handle closes nicely inside. The rack does work on the passenger side if you flip the skewer around, but it does not look as fancy and neat as when it is installed on the driver side. Also the handle part of the skewer is easy to operate. It is larger than on most racks so you have more leverage when opening and closing it on the fork. But the knob on the opposite side of the skewer is on the small side and can be a touch difficult to turn when you are fine tuning it to change bikes. Last but not least, it is easily the best looking roof bike rack available. Kuat has done a great job with making it interesting to look at as opposed to the typical black or silver tray. 102273

I got this since the rack I originally ordered was no longer in production. I really like that this rack is not the plain old boring solid black like most out there. It was super easy to install. BUT, keeping in mind I am blonde and prone to daft moments (or few), I kind of had issues putting my bike on the rack at first. With some jiggling and jangling of the fork mount, I was able to figure out that you pull on the end that does not have the lever and to loosen up the rubber stopper that connects to the lever to make room for the fork to mount to the skewer. And then it was easy there after! Derr... I drove in 20mph+ winds and on 70mph interstate with my bike on the rack and did not encounter issues, as well as through pouring rain. I did stop to check how secure my bike was mounted and it was fine. I tightened the fork mount a few times just for minor jiggling security's sake. I then drove on some rough-ish mountain roads to get to the trail head (yes, I know it says no off road, but c'mon, mountain bikers have to in order to get to the trails) and the bike remained secure the whole time. In all, so far, I highly recommend this product. I drive a 2015 Subaru outback with the stock roof rack and it fit fine, even with hatch door open. My bike is a 29 hardtail Haro. It fit fine. 494150

Installed on a 2017 4Runner factory roof rack, appears to be solid product and will work fine carrying all of my mountain bikes. Giving the Trio only three stars due to the way you have to attach the rear of the rack to your roof crossbars. The rear bolts are pretty long and it was difficult to thread with the minimal clearance you have between the factory cross bar and the roof of the 4Runner. It was pretty difficult to get your hand under there to twist the wing nuts to attach the rear load bar. If you are not very careful with placement you can very easily damage the paint on the roof. 668921

Best price that I could find for this rack anywhere. Free shipping too. Can't complain. Thanks. 601133

Everyone raves about this fork mount rack option because it can handle old style skewer mounting and thru axles. I was excited to use this as I just purchased a mtb bike with a 110x15. I was sooooo excited. The rack is built well, the parts are of high quality but the actual thru axle design is awful! It is nearly impossible to balance the bike in a position that allows the thru axle to lineup with the actual holes on the fork. I guarantee that for those of us who's forks don't line up perfectly you WILL DROP THE BIKE ON YOUR CAR:S ROOF. I was so hopeful but ultimately so disappointed that I had to post this review since no one else seems to review the actual thru axle mounting situation. 553535


I spoke with my Kuat representative, who tells me your new mountain bike has a fork that is 110x15 but the 15mm axle adapter that comes with the Trio rack is 100x15. You would need to get the # TRFA15x110
Boost 110 Adapter for Kuat Trio Bike Rack - 110 mm x 15 mm Thru Axles
axle adapter for your bike fork to fit properly on the rack.

Was looking for a sturdy, stable and good looking fork mount to replace a Yakima Front Loader. So far, so good. The Kuat Trio seems to be all that plus well-constructed. etrailer had it for the best price I saw anywhere on the Kuat. AND, you get a free matching bottle opener key ring! 437608

Renee was extremely patient and with me. She informed me every step of the way. Kuat is the best product out there and but it does take while for it to arrive. That said, if you're not in a hurry, get it! 210475

I love this rack for its functionality and looks. If you're also the type of person who likes having a brand that you don't see everyday then I would recommend this product. My bike mechanic recommended the Trio because he had them on his car. Because I'd never heard of Kuat I felt I needed to do my research before making what I considered an expensive purchase. Needless to say, I liked the company's philosophy, and it's American. Also, I will order from etrailer in the future, their customer service is outstanding. 149043

Review from a similar Kuat Trio in Roof Bike Racks

Install was easy nice and secure fit Mini Cooper rack no problem. Would recommend. Could be better if had locking thru axle skewer and the unit locked to the rack, least its not rubber straps holding it down. 399926

  • Does the Kuat Trio Bike Rack Lock to a Roof Rack
  • The front mounting hardware for the Kuat Trio # RU01 uses tamper-resistant parts. A would-be thief would have to have the exact tool to remove the rack from the roof. Upon realizing this a would-be thief would move on to an easier target.

  • Fit Kuat Trio Roof Mount Bike Rack and # TRP9 Phat 9 Fat Bike Adapter with Surly Moonlander
  • According to Surly, their Moonlander uses a 10mm axle. The Phat 9 Adapter kit you mentioned, part # TRP9 is the correct adapter kit for the Kuat # TR02 or # RU01 Trio roof mount bike racks. We do indeed offer a roof mount bike rack that's compatible with Fat Bikes without needing an adapter. Take a look at the Rhino-Rack Hybrid, part # RRRBC050-FB. The rack holds the bike by the front wheel using a ratcheting hook and a wheel strap for both the front and rear wheels. No need to remove...

  • Roof Rack Recommendations for a 2006 Volvo XC70 and Kuat Trio Bike Racks
  • The Yakima RailBar crossbars # Y00449-2 are just a little too wide for the Kuat Trio bike racks, such as # RU01, to fit. But there are other similar roof racks for your 2006 Volvo XC70 that will work. You can use any of the following: Thule AeroBlade Edge # TH7502B-TH7503B for black or # TH7502-TH7503 for silver Inno Aero bars and flush feet # INXB108-2 and # INXS100 Rhino-Rack StealthBar # JA7950

  • Can Kuat Roof Rack Accessories be Installed on Thule Roof Rack Using T-Slot
  • The Kuat roof rack accessories just use clamps but they also sit directly onto the crossbars so you would have the same amount of clearance whether they mounted in the T-Slot of Thule aero-style crossbars or not. For example, the Kuat Trio Roof Bike Rack, which comes in Gunmetal Gray # RU01 and Black and Polished Chrome # TR02, sits directly on the roof rack bars and then utilizes clamps that sit under the crossbars for the installation.

  • Can Kuat Trio Roof Bike Rack Fit Hatchback Vehicle and Allow Rear Hatch to Open
  • We don't have any roof rack fit info for a 2017 Honda Civic hatchback so it's really hard to say if the Kuat Trio # RU01 would fit and clear the hatch to allow it to open. But what we have found is that in situations where there is a clearance issue you can run the bike rack in reverse and the hatch will open just fine.

  • Will Kuat Trio Roof Mount Bike Rack Interfere with Rear Hatch on 2008 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • To determine if the Kuat Trio # RU01 will interfere with the rear hatch when open on your 2008 Subaru Outback you will need to take one important measurement. Measure from the center of the front crossbar straight back 52-1/2 inches. This is how far the Trio goes from the center of its mounting point to the back end of the rack. If you open the hatch and it does not reach that point 52-1/2 inches back then the rack will fit without hatch interference.

  • Will Kuat Rack Work on 2003 Subaru Forester Factory Rails?
  • The Kuat Trio Roof Bike Rack # RU01 will almost certainly work with the aero-style crossbars on your 2003 Subaru Forester, however I was unable to find the exact dimensions of the crossbars, and Kuat does not base their fits on vehicles. This means you will only need to take two quick measurements to make sure. As long as the crossbars are no more than 3-1/2" wide and no more than 1-11/16" tall, the Trio will fit. I have added a link to a review video for you to take a look at as well.

  • Kuat Trio on Thule AeroBlade Bars Does Not Clear Spoiler/Open Hatch on 2016 Ford Focus ST
  • We can't have that happening! Let's see what we can do. Roof bike racks such as the Kuat Trio # RU01 are designed to fit roof racks and not specific vehicles. Even if the rack was not touching the spoiler on your 2016 Ford Focus ST with the hatch open the rear bike tire most likely would have. How close is the rack from being able to clear the spoiler? If it just barely touches then it would be permissible to move all 4 of the roof rack feet forward a hair so that it doesn't touch....

  • External Diameter for Phat 9 Fat Bike Adapter Kit for Kuat Trio
  • The Phat 9 Fat Bike Adapter Kit for Kuat Trio - 9 mm x 135 mm Forks # TRP9 has the following external diameter dimensions. At the thickest, it is 24.9 mm. In the center it is 23.9 mm. At either end it is 19.7 mm. I've attached a photo to assist. The manufacturer does not recommend using it with another rack as it is designed specifically for the Kuat Trio # TR02 or # RU01. They can't confirm it will be compatible with any other rack.

  • Maximum Tire Width That Inno Multi Fork Lock Roof Bike Rack # INA392 can Fit
  • The max tire width the Inno Multi Fork Lock Roof Bike Rack # INA392 can fit is 2-11/16 inch or in decimal form 2.69 inches. That's really close to your dimension of 2.8 inches so worst case scenario you might have to deflate your bike tire a bit to get it to fit into the rear wheel tray. Your other option is the Kuat Trio Roof Bike Rack # RU01 which fits tire widths up to 4 inches and also fits the same 15 mm and 20 mm thru axles.

  • I do have an option for you but the Kuat Grip Ski and Snowboard Carrier part # GRR6B would not be able to be installed over the Kuat Trio Roof Bike Rack part # RU01. The Kuat Grip does not sit high enough in order to allow for the Kuat Trio to mount underneath. That said, if your crossbars are long enough you can slide the Kuat Trio to the end of the crossbar to allow for room for the Kuat Grip to attach. Otherwise, you would need to remove the Kuat Trio if you don't have space for both...
