Kuat Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2019 Subaru Crosstrek

Zach: Hey guys. Zach here at etrailer.com and today we're going to be taking a look at the Kuat NV 2.0 on our 2019 Subaru Crosstrek. This is going to be a nice versatile bike rack that not only holds a lot of different bikes but it just looks good and it functions well. When I say it's very versatile, it holds a lot of different bikes especially because it's wheel not a design so I can put my carbon bike on here.Frame mounted bike racks aren't ideal for carbon bikes because it puts too much stress going down the road on those frames. It has a 60 pound capacity per bike so you can get a lot of those e-Bikes and some fat bikes on there. If you are carrying an e-Bike though, please take the battery off.

Thule Hitching Post Pro Hitch Bike Rack Review - 2018 Subaru Crosstrek

Hey everyone, Charles here at etrailer and today we're taking a look at the Thule Hitching Post Pro on our 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. This is gonna be a great way of hauling four bikes to and from your destination as long as you have a class II hitch or above. If you have an inch and a quarter class I hitch like we have today, then we can only carry up to two bikes and it's gonna be 35 pounds per bike, just keeping that in mind. And it does have a tilt away feature which is awesome for getting stuff out of your hatch but you have to take the bikes off to do that, so I'll show you that in just a bit. Right here we have three points of contact, two over the top tube and then an anti-sway strap right here. It's just gonna reduce the amount of movement it has and it's gonna help your bikes not collide with each other as much cuz if I took it off, notice we have a lot more movement.



Swagman Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2018 Subaru Crosstrek

Hey everyone, Charles here at etrailer, and today we're taking a look at the Swagman Chinook bike rack on a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. This is gonna be a great choice for transporting your bikes of up to 45 pounds per bike. Since it is a frame mount, if you have a custom paint job or a carbon frame style bike, this might not be the one for you, but we do have a cool tilt away feature, and that's gonna allow us to keep our bike on the rack and still have access to our hatch, and when you fold it back up, you're gonna hear an audible click letting you know that it is secure. We have three attachment points, a strap for each tire, and the frame mount. To take the bike off, we're gonna start with the straps and just swing them out of the way, and then keeping one hand on the frame so it doesn't fall on your vehicle, we can then push on these buttons and swing them up, and I like to just take the hooks off 'cause it makes it easier for me to take the bike off. And I also like to lower this center mass down by lifting up on this lever.
