Kuat Hitch Bike Racks - B202-114

This stylish rack from Kuat carries up to 2 bikes and fits 1-1/4" trailer hitch receivers. Easy to use and easy to store. Anti-sway cradles with anti-rattle device make sure your bikes are secure.


Features:

  • Carries up to 2 bikes
  • Lightweight, yet sturdy aluminum frame
  • Durable dual-strap cradles provide anti-sway and easy bike attachment
  • Anti-wobble system uses hand knob to reduce rattle inside the hitch receiver
  • Short distance between the rack arms carries most alternative, women's and children's bikes
    • Reduces the need for an adapter bar
  • Folding design allows access to the vehicle's rear cargo area
    • Folds flat for storage
  • Powder-coated, gun metal gray finish resists rust


Specs:

  • Carrying capacity: 2 bikes
  • Maximum weight capacity: 80 lbs.
  • Application: 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" (Class I and II) trailer hitches
  • Distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright bar: 7-1/2"
  • Distance between the 2 rack arms (center to center): 8"

  • Cradles spread: up to 1-7/8" wide
    • Accept bike frames up to 3" in diameter

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.


Approved for use on cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs - not approved for fifth wheels, motorhomes, or towable campers

This stylish rack from Kuat carries up to two bikes and fits 1-1/4" trailer hitch receivers. Constructed with rigid 6061 heat-treated aluminum tubing, it is one of the lightest bike racks in its class, weighing less than 13 pounds. Innovative anti-sway cradles fit up to 3" diameter frames. Its convenient hand tightening cam system eliminates the need for tools by tightening the bike rack inside the hitch receiver using a large turning knob. The folding design of this bike rack allows for both easy storage and full access to your rear cargo area.


Durable dual-strap cradles provide extra support for bike frames (shown on the Pearl model)

Each cradle has two straps that secure your bike by the top tube and the down tube or seat tube. The cradles fit up to 3" frames.



Large turning knob shown on the front of the hitch barAnti-wobble piece shown extending from the hitch bar

The Beta uses only a convenient hand knob to tighten the rack inside the hitch, unlike other racks that require a bolt and wrench.


Compact folding design allows for convenient storage

The rack tilts forward, away from your vehicle, when you remove the pin at the base, allowing easy access to your vehicle's cargo area. The arms fold down and the hitch bar rotates 270 degrees, parallel to the upright bar. This folding design makes the rack very easy to store.

Very light and just what we need for our Subaru WRX Sti. We have yet to put it to a test, though we set it up and like the tightening feature. You can eliminate the rattle that has occurred in past racks by tightening down the thumbscrews. 130322

Well, weve owned this rack for about a year and is still solid. We took it from MA to Fla with two fairly heavy mountain bikes on it and couldnt even tell it was back there. The swing down feature is nice, though it is unassisted meaning you will be presented with the full weight of the bikes when you pivot it down. We had no problem with this, though.

I love this rack. It is heavy duty but still light. I am impressed with the design of the anti-wobble feature, the folding mechanisms and the straps. I saw a comment somewhere that you can't drop the rack while loaded. It might not be recommended but I do it every time I load my bike and forget that my Chevy Sonic hatch is still up. I do it with only one bike on it and lower it slowly and it works fine. This is no fault of the rack but I did run into conflicts with loading my 29'er and my fat bike at the same time. They both have slanted top tubes which put the tires and bars in the same spot. It looks like I can rotate one of the pads and strap it to the down tube though. I am very happy with this rack. 185441

This is my first bike rack, but for the price I don't know if you can do any better. The rack is light and easy to use. The rack is completely stable at all speeds, and even when I drive fairly aggressively. The anti-wobble features work as well as you would expect. The rack has also done no noticeable damage to my bike, with the exception of the size sticker that is on the upper part of the seat tube. This is a sticker that I planned to remove anyway, so no worries there. One word of caution though, and this goes for any "hanging" bike rack: if you have quick-release wheels, make sure the quick release lever is fully tightened and closed. On my way home the other day the vibrations of the road loosened the lever on my rear wheel and the wheel came off when I went over a small bump in the road at speed. The drive chain and my cable lock kept the wheel from smashing into the road. Now I know to check the tightness on the levers not just before I ride, but also before I transport the bike. 188949

After asking an etrailer expert about the Kuat Beta bike rack, I ordered it online. It is just what I needed to transport our bikes (using a class 1 trailer hitch) behind our small car. It is lightweight, but seems to be well made. 71670

We've been using this bike rack with a 1.25" Draw-Tite receiver hitch (also purchased from etrailer) on a 2012 Prius C for a month with no problems. As shown on the pictures, it fits two bikes very well, even one with a baby carrier. I chose this model based on recommendations from etrailer that it can be easily detached from the car without tools. True to their word, it is very easily detachable from the hitch and folds up nicely to fit in your garage/closet/storage area. Basically, it uses a hand tightened ball bearing mechanism to secure itself into the hitch receiver, and then uses a 3/8" hand locked pin as a safety device. You can install and de-install this rack in just a few minutes. During driving, there is little noticeable vibration from this rack, even on rougher roads or speed bumps. The only downside is that the holes on the receiver hitch do not align perfectly with the holes on the bike rack (see picture). I believe a few other reviewers also noted this issue. There is enough room to fit the safety pin, but not quite enough to fit a 1/2" hitch lock. I called Kuat to ask them about this and the rep told me that not all hitches will line up with this rack. Kuat, coincidentally(?), sells a hitch lock that is also 3/8" (same size as the safety pin) and still fits. 418549

My Kuat bike rack is just right! It is lightweight, easy to put on and off the car, and it stores in the trunk of my car. I can open and shut the trunk easily with the bike rack on. The rack has a sharp, modern look and holds the bikes securely on the car. I really could not ask for more. Thank you! 546301

I'm completely happy with this rack! It arrived fully assembled and took only a minute to install. Super easy, super light, and super sturdy. I do use a short strap to secure the bike frame to the rack when I'm only hauling one bike because there's some sway. But not a big deal. Highly recommend. 506478

I've owned just about every major type of rack over the years based on vehicle application. Needed a hanging rack for my new 4Runner and the KUAT Beta delivers. It is light weight, highly engineered and uses qualitative materials. The positive pins are quick and easy giving me a piece of mind over cam lock mechanisms. Two anti wobble mechanisms are built in and they are solid. I am jazzed that the rack is made of aluminum and weighs less than my bike - unlike many others that are 2x that weight. It folds flat for easy storage too. Excellent design / job KUAT. Etrailer's service is tops too! 502046

I wanted to let you know (and please pass this along to others at etrailer.com) how pleased I was with the service and the finished product I received at etrailer. I brought my car in for a trailer hitch and a new bike rack (Kuat). I was immediately impressed with the customer service! Every single person was friendly and professional. It seemed to me that every employee enjoyed their job and this great attitude was generously shared with the customers. I was also impressed with the overall HUGE operation that etrailer has. Most of all, this is just to say THANKS for a great experience. 463369

I have this rack on a 1-1/4" hitch fitted to a KIA Soul. It's my first hitch/rack so I don't have anything to compare it with but I find it very easy to use. It has loops on it that allow the rack to be locked to the hitch - peace of mind when left on the car. One of the best things about it is its ability to swing away from the hatchback door. That has been useful frequently. I also use the rack as a bike stand to work on the bike. If you're new to bike racks like this, be advised that you may want to secure the front wheels of the bikes; they tend to move around a LOT if untied. I think this would go for any rack of this style. 427154

Great bike rack. Very light, but strong, and folds up very compactly! Easy to store and carry down to car from apt. on 11th floor! Good looking, sturdy, and color matches VW grey. Bike rack tightens easily so no rattle (and no tools; uses a handle on bottom to turn and tighten). Also tilts back to get access to hatch (you just have to take your bike off first). Definitely recommend it!!! 384574

We had to buy a Kuat pin lock as a work around for the pin not fitting over the bar and that has worked great. I think Kuat either needs to fix the pin problem or sell the rack with the lock.

Arrived in two days so I can was very pleased. I put this rack on my Infiniti G37x sedan. Purchased this model because the aluminum frame is light weight and won't rust like steel in the rain. It took about 15 minutes to install and also fold up quickly when removed or placed in trunk. The rack locks in tight with no wobble or movement. I can also access the trunk with bikes mounted on rack which is nice. Note to buyers: you will need to purchase a hitch lock and bike lock as it doesn't come with the Kuat rack. This seems pretty consistent with similar rack options. 269001

We hauled our bikes around the eastern provinces of Canada last summer and they rode great on the rack, even on rough roads. The rack is easy to mount on the hitch and it swings down easily for access to the hatchback. The rubber straps seem durable and they are quick and simple to use for securing the bikes to the rack. 251042

I have had the Kuat bike rack for a year now and can't be happier. Being 69, I bought it because it was lightweight - and it has been so easy to put on and take off the car by myself, while still feeling it is secure and durable. Customer service was also responsive when I initially received the wrong product. 248120

This bike rack was very easy to install and is lightweight and easy to handle. It is well made, and after watching the videos on your website I felt like a pro.

Solid rack with very little bike sway/rock when driving. The rack did not sit at 90* when installed, more like 88*, had to shim it to make it straight up. 187139



- B202-114
by:

Light weight and folds easily to fit inside the trunk of an 06-12 Fusion. The fitment with this item and a Draw-Tite hitch required no modifications. However, the offset of the 1/2" receiver pin holes of this bike rack requires the use of a 3/8" hitch pin, one is included. If you want to use a key lock hitch pin, I am using a Reese hitch lock with the included bike rack pin and some metal sleeves that are available from just about any hardware store. I suppose the offset holes of this bike rack is to assist with the anti-rattle feature in conjunction with the receiver tensioner. I prefer compatibility with a Class-1 receiver. A trip to my friend's machine shop should correct this flaw. 182256

Package arrived ahead of schedule per the e-trailer email shipment-tracking updates. The Kuat Beta bike carrier was light weight and very well designed. I loaded my mountain bike and took a 30 min drive to a near by Lake trails system. The carrier did not move around and it kept the bike well secured. The compression tool that cinches down the 1-1/4" hitch sleeve keeps it tight in transit. It took about 30 seconds to remove the rack and stow it in the trunk until I returned from my ride. this is my second purchase from e-trailer. 166413



- B202-114
by:

Light and sleek. The pins easily unlatch for raising the bar that holds the bikes, or for dropping the rack for trunk access. It carried 2 bikes without any problems. I did not actually set it up myself, as my husband was anxious for a chore. I am hoping it will pull out from my hitch easily for stowing in the hatchback. Glad I have this rack rather than the other bulky ones I have seen. Great service, super quick delivery!!! 133406

  • I do have a solution for you, but from the research that I have done it looks like the OEM 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receiver that you have on your 2017 Subaru Outback is a Class I hitch; you can look on it to confirm if it is a Class I or not. In that case, my contact at Softride said that none of their bike racks are compatible with Class I receivers. This means that the Dura Parallelogram SR26247 (discontinued) is not compatible with your current receiver. Since you can only carry...

This bike rack comes fully assembled and is ready to use right out of the box and is compatible with both a 1-1/4" receiver # B202-114 or 2" receiver # B202-2 depending on what you already have on your CR-V. If you do not already have a trailer...

  • Weight of Swagman Trailhead, Swagman Titan, Thule Roadway and Kuat Beta Bike Racks
  • The Thule Roadway 2 Bike Rack # TH912XTR weighs approximately 35 lbs, the Swagman Titan 2 Bike Rack # S63400 weighs approximately 33 lbs and the Swagman Trailhead 2 Bike Rack # S63360 weighs about 27 lbs. These are each quality bike racks and should be manageable but if you are looking for a truly lightweight, easy-to-use hanging bike rack you may also want to consider the Kuat Beta which weighs 12.6 lbs. It is available for 2 inch hitches # B202-2 and 1-1/4 inch hitches # B202-114. Additionally,...

  • Best Way To Carry 4 Bikes On A 2014 Honda Accord
  • One of the best trailer hitch options available for your 2014 Honda Accord is our Curt Class I Round Tube Receiver Hitch part # C11681. This product features a sturdy steel square tubing design and has a maximum tongue weight rating of 200 lbs. It will fit both the coupe and sedan models with no drilling required. You may also want to consider the stabilizer strap part # 18050 to ensure a smooth ride. Although the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider part # HR1400Z is a great bike rack, a Class...

  • Tilting Bike Rack that Will Let Tailgate Down on a 2007 Honda Element
  • I do have a recommendation for you but I am not confident that the Curt rack, # C18029, will tilt down far enough to lower the tailgate on your 2007 Honda Element. But take a look at the Kuat Beta bike racks such as # B202-2 for 2 inch hitches or # B202-114 for 1-1/4 inch hitches. This racks tilt down much further so clearance for the tailgate won't be a problem. On your Element the 2 inch Draw-Tite hitch is # 75659. The 1-1/4 inch version is # 24720 (excludes SC models).

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Chevrolet Malibu
  • If you like the Thule T2, but you aren't thrilled with the weight and size, I recommend looking at the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 bike racks. The Sherpa 2.0 is available in gray, # SH12G, pearl, # SH12P, and black, # SH12B. These bike racks weigh almost 20 lbs less than the T2 at 32 lbs and they are smaller in size. When folded, the T2 Pro measures 55" wide x 34" tall and the Sherpa 2.0 measures 42-1/4" wide x 27-3/4" tall (see photo). Kuat is a premium brand that competes with Thule when it comes...

  • How to Carry 4 Bikes with a 2018 Honda HR-V
  • Since the 2 trailer hitches that we have available for your 2018 Honda HR-V are Class I rated, part # 24932 and part # C11416, you won't be able to carry more than 2 bikes with a hitch mounted bike rack. All Class I trailer hitches are smaller so the extra weight from bikes sitting further away from the vehicle will cause damage to your bike rack, trailer hitch, and possibly your HR-V and bikes. We have 4-bike bike racks that are compatible with your Class I trailer hitch, like the Thule...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Hanging Bike Carrier For 2009 Volkswagen Eos
  • The locking hand knob on the shank is 4-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole as shown in one of the attached photos. In the other photo I attached you can see it is positioned at an angle on the shank of the Thule Helium Aero, part # TH9042. It may have enough clearance to be able to tighten the rack to your trailer hitch. The carrier weighs just 18-1/2 lbs and has a weight capacity of 35 lbs per bike. The bike rack also features a cable lock system that helps deter theft...

  • Will the Hollywood Racks Baja 2 Bike Rack # HRB2 Fit on a 2017 Chevy Camaro
  • I do have a solution for you to carry 2 bikes with your 2017 Chevrolet Camaro, but the Hollywood Racks Baja 2 # HRB2 is not confirmed to fit. I spoke with my contact at Hollywood Racks who looked up your 2017 Camaro in their most recent fit guide and the Expedition 2 Bike Carrier # HRF6-2 is the trunk mount option that is a confirmed fit. Even though there is a trunk mount option for you, I recommend installing the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24938 and using it with...

  • Recommended 2-Bike Rack on a Mazda CX-3 with Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • I do have some options for you, however the Yakima Ridgeback 2 # Y02457 will not work on your Draw-Tite Sportframe # 24933 because it's a class I trailer hitch and the Ridgeback 2 fits class II and larger. Both class I and class II hitches are 1-1/4 inches, but as you realized they are not identical. For a great class I hitch mount bike rack the Kuat Beta # B202-114 is a great choice. It has an anti-wobble hand-knob which makes it easier to tighten to the hitch receiver by hand instead...

  • Best Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2015 Subaru Impreza Hatchback
  • We carry one 2 inch trailer hitch receiver to fit your 2015 Subaru Impreza, the EcoHitch, part # 306-X7211. However, it only fits if your vehicle has the knock out panel on the rear bumper. If your Impreza doesn't have a knock out panel then you're going to need a 1-1/4 inch hitch which I suggest the Draw-Tite Sportframe Class I # DT24959 since you have the hatchback and not a sedan. This way you will not need the support straps like is necessary with the Curt. An option to use...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2014 BMW 435i Convertible
  • Curt trailer hitch # C11367 fits your 2014 BMW 435i Convertible. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier then you have to make sure the accessory is rated for use with a Class I trailer hitch. Also, with a bike rack, you are limited to 2 bikes maximum on a Class I hitch. Curt also says you have to use stabilization strap # 18050 when using this hitch for any non-trailer load (such as a bike rack or cargo carrier) per their warranty requirements.
