Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle. However, to mount certain bikes or to keep your bike level on the rack, a bike adapter bar may be required. Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.


Kuat Highline 2-bike

This premium trunk rack provides the look and functionality you expect from Kuat without the need for a roof rack or hitch to install it. And it doesn't just look great, it's also super easy to use. The frame is adjustable so the rack fits on most cars, and the arms are individually adjustable so you can carry nearly any style of bike. It installs and removes quickly and easily, and you can fold it up and lock it safely in your vehicle while you ride.


Anti-Sway Cradles with Ratcheting Straps

Kuat Highline 2-bike

The rack has anti-sway cradles that help prevent bike-to-bike contact during transport. The cradles pivot out of the way to make it easy to load and unload your bikes.


Kuat Highline 2-bike

Your bike frames are protected by soft rubber pads that absorb road shock and vibration. The padded cradles have ratchet straps that make it easy to secure your bikes. Simply insert a strap into the buckles on each side of the cradle and pull it tight around your bike's frame. To remove your bikes pull out one side of each strap by pressing the release lever on the side of each anti-sway cradle.


Folding Dual Arms

Kuat Highline 2-bike

Dual arms provide excellent stability for your bikes. Integrated levers let you adjust each arm to ensure your bikes are level during transport and to help improve ground clearance.


Kuat Highline 2-bike

These levers also allow you to quickly fold the arms down when you're not carrying any bikes. This is great for parking in places where space is limited such as a parking garage.


Easy Installation

Kuat Highline 2-bike protective strips

The rack includes 4 clear, adhesive vinyl strips to protect your trunk from scratches and scuffs. Set the rack on your vehicle and stick the included blue guide markers on the 4 points of contact. Remove the rack and replace each blue guide marker with a vinyl strip.


Kuat Highline 2-bike

The Highline installs quickly and easily on your trunk or hatch. Place the bottom of the rack on your bumper well, and press the levers to adjust the angle of the upper arms to match the shape of your vehicle. When the legs are in the desired position simply release the levers to lock them into place.


Kuat Highline 3-bikeKuat Highline 3-bike

6 Straps with rubber-coated hooks attach the rack to your trunk or hatch. The hooks are labeled "Upper", "Side", and "Lower" for easy orientation on your vehicle. A glass hatch kit (sold separately) is available for installation on a vehicle with narrow gaps around the hatch or trunk, or with glass or plastic hinge lines that aren't compatible with standard S-hooks or J-hooks.


Kuat Highline 2-bike

To secure the rack, simply attach the 6 hooks and pull the straps tight through the integrated cam buckles. Hook-and-loop fasteners are also included so you can bundle excess strap length to keep it from flapping against your trunk.


Fold For Compact Storage

When not in use you can fold the rack flat for compact storage in your trunk or garage.

Video Transcript for Kuat Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan

Speaker 1: Today on our 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan we're going to be doing a test fit on the Kuat Highline Trunk Mount 2 Bike Rack, that's part number HIT2B. Now this bike rack's also available in silver if you like that and that's part number HIT2S. Now you can get both of those colors in a 3 bike version with part number HIT3B and HIT3S.So anyway I've already got it loaded up just to give you a good idea of how it's going to hold our bikes and how it's going to look on our Caravan. So it anchors our bike with three points of contact. We've got two ratchet style straps for our top tube, very simple to operate. Set your bike in place, and you just pull it down and then you're done.

Now our third point of contact is going to be our anti-sway. This is going to help prevent that sway in the bike when we're on the road. Prevent bike to bike contact and bike to bike rack and bike to vehicle contact.Well let's go ahead and take our bike off. It's very simple to do, just press in on the button and guide that strap all the way out. Then we can just take our bike off.

Now I like to replace my straps that way they're not flapping around during transport. Another thing I'd like to show you is the anti-sway cradle does pivot out of the way. Both of them do this, that way it's going to make for easy loading and unloading of our bikes. It can really be a pain with some bike racks trying to get your frame on to the dual arms and it's just running into every cradle on the way back. So that's a really nice feature.Let's grab some measurements.

So we'll come from the bumper of our Grand Caravan, our dual arms are sticking out about 17". The nice thing is they do fold down for compact storage. We'll operate the switch on top, rotate it down until they snap into place. Then we'll take another measurement. Now as you can see it's just about flush with our bumper all the way up.

Now if our straps are looped like this, it's only sticking out past our bumper about an inch and a half. So that's really nice, it kind of sits up flush against our vehicle.Now while I'm talking about it. I would like to point out that it's not recommended to open up your rear hatch, one reason because of the way it's attached, and two, because the bottom or the lower bracket here, the lower support, excuse me, is resting on our bumper.Now it's a six strap system. It uses six straps total to connect to our Grand Caravan. Three straps for each side. Now one thing I really like about the straps is that they are all labeled. That way we don't have to wonder where the straps go when positioning it on our vehicle. You can see here how the side one says, "Side". Now the hooks are rubber coated that way they don't harm or scratch our finish. And one other thing I really like is that they use can-buckle straps and there's a keeper for all that excess. That way we don't have to try and tie it up once we've got it tightened down to our Grand Caravan.Now you can see here with our rear windshield wiper blade we will not be able to use that, so just keep that in mind. And one last thing I'd like to mention is that with the way that it sets up it's going to work with a wide variety of vehicles so not only will it work with our Grand Caravan but it's going to work with sedan, an SUV or even a cross-over. So if you have any of those in your household it will work out just fine.That's going to complete our test fit of the Kuat Highline Truck Mount Bike Rack, part number HIT2B on our 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan.

Fit well on ‘12 charger. A little tough to get clips between trunk and rear fenders. Felt like bikes weren’t going anywhere once it was on. 612495

Ask the Experts about this Kuat Trunk Bike Racks

Do you have a question about this Trunk Bike Rack?


  • Trunk-Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for 2007 Honda Fit
  • There are a couple great options for a trunk-mounted bike rack on a 2007 Honda Fit (so long as it is not a Sport model of '07 Fit). The trunk-mounted bike rack I highly recommend for your 2007 Honda Fit is the Kuat Highline. This is available as a 2-bike rack # HIT2B (Black) or # HIT2S (Silver) as well as a 3-bike rack # HIT3B (Black) or # HIT3S (Silver). The Highline is unique in that it features four clear protective strips which you will put on the rack where it contacts your...

  • Does Trunk Mount Bike Rack Need to be Removed for Hatch Access on a 2011 Honda Element
  • Yes, you will need to remove the Kuat Highline 2 Bike Rack # HIT2B from the trunk of your 2011 Honda Element before opening up the tailgate and upper door. This is the same case for all trunk mount bike racks on any vehicle. If you are wanting to have unrestricted access to the rear hatch area of your Honda Element without removing your bikes or bike rack then you can install a trailer hitch and use a swing-away bike rack. For this application I recommend the Draw-Tite # 75659 which...

  • How to Transport a Bike at the Back of a 2016 Chevy Spark EV
  • Unfortunately none of the trailer hitches we have to offer will fit your 2016 Chevy Spark EV. We do have roof rack options if what you are needing to carry is lighter. Just let me know and I can make a recommendation for you. Otherwise if you're set on a trailer hitch you will need to have one fabricated for your specific vehicle.

  • Is Kuat Highland Trunk Mounted Bike Rack A Good Fit for 2016 Mazda 3 Hatchback
  • Yes, the Kuat Highland part # HIT2B that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 2016 Mazda 3 hatchback. This is a really nice bike rack that I would recommend highly for your vehicle. It's very easy to install, lightweight, and has a wide contact pad to spread out the weight of your bikes and rack on the rear door of your 3. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top...

  • Trunk Mounted Kuat Bike Rack for 2019 Honda Fit
  • Kuat does make trunk-mounted bike racks and they will work on your 2019 Honda Fit! The Kuat Highline is the name of the rack and it is available as a 2-bike rack # HIT2B (Black) or # HIT2S (Silver) as well as a 3-bike rack # HIT3B (Black) or # HIT3S (Silver).

  • How to Transport Bikes With 2018 Lexus RX 450h L
  • There is not a trailer hitch that is a fit for a 2018 Lexus RX 450h L and there is really no way to know if one will be added, although you can still transport your bikes with the use of a trunk-mounted bike rack. So long as your '18 Lexus RX 450h L does not have a spoiler I strongly recommend checking out the Kuat Highline 2-bike rack # HIT2B (Black) or # HIT2S (Silver) because of its combination of quality and aesthetics which makes it unique among trunk-mounted bike racks. This...

  • Recommended Trunk Mount Bike Rack for 2019 Honda Civic Sedan
  • For a 2019 Honda Civic sedan I strongly recommend checking out the Kuat Highline which is available in Black # HIT2B or Silver # HIT2S and will fit '19 Civic sedans that are not the Si model. This anti-sway cradles on the rack ensure your bikes won't come into contact with each other or your Civic and it has easy-to-use folding arms for storage that only require the press of a lever. On top of its features, the Highline is just a really cool looking rack no matter if you go with...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for 2019 Nissan Murano
  • The trunk mounted bike rack I recommend for your 2019 Nissan Murano is the Kuat Highline part # HIT2B because it's very lightweight, has a large pad that contacts the vehicle to better distribute the weight of the bikes and rack, is very adjustable which makes mounting and loading/unloading very easy and because we had the chance to test fit this rack on a similar Murano and we found that it fit and worked great.

  • How to Carry Bikes With 2008 BMW M3
  • While there is a solution for you to carry cargo with your 2008 BMW M3, the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24857 will not fit your vehicle; I checked with the hitch manufacturers for you and there is not a trailer hitch that will fit your car. That said, if you are simply looking to use the hitch in order to carry bikes with your '08 M3 you can do so whether it is a Coupe or Sedan with a trunk-mounted bike rack and I highly recommend the Kuat Highline for this because it excels at keeping...

  • Best Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for 2018 Nissan Murano
  • Since you don't want to install a hitch on your 2018 Nissan Murano the best way to transport bikes will be with a trunk mounted bike rack. These racks attach to the rear door/hatch of the vehicle and provide a similar style rack as a hitch bike rack without requiring you to install a hitch. The trade off is that they end up touching the paint of the vehicle but as long as you keep the rack and vehicle clean you won't have any issues. For a trunk rack confirmed as a fit check out the...

I attached a picture of this rack installed on a similar Civic as yours for you to check out as well.
