Dual Folding Arms with Anti-Sway Cradles

TX-104 dual arms

The Kuat Beta has dual arms that provide excellent support for your bikes. They slope up to provide ground clearance for steep driveways and bumpy roads.


Kuat tilting arms

To fold the arms down, remove the tethered bail pin at the top of the mast. This leaves a smaller footprint, so you can keep the rack on your vehicle to park in your garage. And when stored in this configuration, it doesn't take up as much space in your garage.


Kuat folding shank

The shank also folds up, so it takes less space to store the Beta than it does to store a rack that only has folding arms.


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

Anti-sway cradles with rubber straps hold your bikes firmly in place. Each set of cradles has two straps that secure your bike along the top tube and one that secures the seat post or downtube. This multi-point contact helps keep your bikes from rocking back and forth, reducing bike-to-bike contact. The soft rubber cradles rotate around the rack's arms to accommodate bikes of different styles and shapes.



Easy Tilting for Cargo Area Access

Beta folded down

The rack tilts down without your bikes loaded. This means you won't have to remove the whole rack to access your cargo area for grocery runs and other errands.


Kuat base

To tilt the rack, remove the tethered bail pin in the upper hole on the base of the mast and insert it in the lower hole. The pin serves as a stopper to support the mast when lowered. When you're ready to go, remove the pin, raise the mast, and reinsert the pin in the upper hole.


Anti-Wobble Hand Knobs

hand knobsTX-104 dual arms

Hands knobs tighten the joints where the arms fold and where the mast tilts. This adds stability and reduces vibration during transport. Loosen the knobs when you're ready to fold the arms down or tilt the rack away from your vehicle, tighten them when you're ready to load your bikes.


1-Person, Tool-Free Installation

hand knob

The Beta is made of lightweight aluminum that weighs less than 14 lbs, making it one of the lightest racks on the market and one of the easiest to install. All you have to do is slide the shank into your hitch and turn the T-handle until snug. Turning the T-handle deploys an anti-rattle wedge in the shank to help take play out of the hitch connection.


pin and clip

Once the T-handle is snug, insert the pin and clip to secure the rack in your hitch.


Available Security and Adapter Bar

locklock

A hitch lock and cable lock (sold separately) are available to help deter theft of your bikes and the rack.


adapter bar

If you have a women's bike, kid's bike, or any other bike without a straight, horizontal top tube, you will need an adapter bar (sold separately) to properly mount your bike. The bar fits between the seat post and handlebar stem post of your bike to create a top tube so your bike hangs level on the rack.

I was looking for a light weight bike rack for my 2015 Honda Accord. Your videos stated that the Kuat Beta was light and easy to install. You were right. I opened the box, read the instructions, and had it installed in about 10 minutes. I don't use a rack lock. It is so easy to pop on and off the hitch that I keep the rack in my car trunk.

Very easy to use. Excellent product.

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.



by:

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.



by:

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.



by:

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.



by:

I am very pleased with our Kuat bike rack. It is everything as advertised by etrailer and I will definitely make additional purchases with this company.



by:

This hitch totally fit my needs. It is super light weight and fold up to store very easy in the back of my CR-V or on the shelf in my garage. It holds the bike securely and the price was absolutely right on. I use it on my Honda CR-V.



by:

Really happy. Shipment was originally delayed because the adapter bar was back ordered but I emailed and the folks at etrailer got it on its way. Arrived an hour ago and I’ve already put it on to check fit. Very glad I bought the Kuat. Light enough for me to get it on without help. The bikes seem to swing forward and back a bit so I’ll look into how I can fix that. But I’m excited to get the bikes out of town.



by:

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.

Excellent Product and Service ! Thank you !



by:

Works perfectly, intaller said it fit 2019 Hyundai Ioniq like it was custom made. Used for local trips, plus annual vacation from Pa. to Florida, zero issues. The wife is able to install and remove with little effort...but can leave on the car with no hatchback interference.



by:

I love this rack so much! I have a hatchback car and I need to get into the back often to load & unload, having this rack makes it easy to pull pin and set down to the ground so I can get to things in the back of my car! Highly recommend this rack!



by:

I've had this rack for about 1 year now and am very happy with it. The rack is really well engineered--sturdy, light weight and easy to put on and take off of the hitch. I've used it with both one and two bikes with no issues. The only negative about the rack is that the pin that locks it to the hitch is a non-standard size (smaller diameter) and the pin doesn't have a tether, so it would be easy to lose and I think the only place to get a replacement is from Kuat.



by:

This is a great bike rake. Company stands by its products also.



by:

Very light rack. It works just fine. I wish it included an integral cable lock.



by:

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.

Super! Loading the rack and the bike takes just a few minutes and expands my biking range tremendously.



by:

I love my Kuat Bike Rack and the trailer hitch I bought from etrailer. The main thing I appreciated was Mike H and Victoria B, with their indepth knowledge and good advice. Putting a trailer hitch and bike rack on a Mazda Miata is not easy - but the pieces Mike and Victoria recommended all worked great. Thank you for being a great company!

Love my bike rack! It still feels quite sturdy after a year, and easy to use.. I like how I can fold it down to take up less space in my tiny garage. Thanks!



by:

Excellent carrier! Zero sway and solid as a rock.
Only downfall is the pin that goes through the hitch. Kinda hard getting the spring part on and off of the pin. I pinched my hand a few different times. Wish there were a better pin system.

Still excellent! I just used it again today. 100 recommend.



by:

I looked at a lot of bike racks and the Kuat was one of the very best. Lightweight and a reasonable price. It folds nearly flat and easy to store in the trunk. I'm using on a Toyota Prius and one pleasant surprise was I can open the hatchback without moving the rack or the bikes.

The bike rack is great!

I got this rack instead of a similar (but more expensive) Thule lightweight rack, because the Thule was on back order and I wanted the rack for an upcoming trip. This one proved to be a very good value, but to be honest, I still think the Thule would have met my needs a little better. This rack delivered pretty much as promised, especially in the light weight. It was very easy to handle due to its light, aluminum construction, while not feeling at all flimsy. Everything is very solidly built, and fairly easy to use. Installation was simple, although folding and unfolding with the pins requiring removal and re-insertion is a bit more fiddly than the simple lever releases some other racks (such as the Thule) use. But it got easier with a bit of practice. The rack attaches to the receiver very solidly with the anti-rattle device simple to manually tighten once the hitch pin is in place. The bikes were very easy to load and secure, but I did find the “anti-sway” straps to be kind of ineffective. I solved this problem with three velcro straps - two to secure the inner bike’s frame to the rack, and one to secure the frames of the bikes to each other. A roll of half inch (or so?) velcro is incredibly useful for carrying bikes on a rack - I also use it to secure the handlebars to prevent any sway there when the bikes are on the car as well. Overall, a very solid rack, and a good value, if not quite as slick and easy to use (with designed into the rack locks as well) as the more expensive Thule aluminum rack. Four stars for the rack, but definitely five stars for all the people I dealt with at etrailer - definitely first class customer service at every point in the process.



by:

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.



by:

Best bike rack I have used. My last rack was so heavy and it made it quite difficult to remove it from the receiver. This one is as smooth as butter.

However, the design intent of placing the hole for mounting it to the receiver is flawed. The manufacture places it off center and expects you to use the small 3/8' pin provided to fit between the rack and the receiver for a 1-1/4' hitch receiver. The holes apparently line up perfect with a 2" receiver. This is a dumb idea. I am forced to drill the hole centered so I can use the 1/2' locking hitch pin I have. I don't want to buy a 3/8" locking pin since I need a 1/2" one for my trailer. This makes an oblong hole in the bike rack.

Note to Kuat: Center the dang thing or making unique sizes for each hitch receiver it a better plan.

    The Kuat Beta, # B202-114, is designed to fit 1-1/4 inch trailer hitches, which is what your Chevy HHR should have.

  • Trailer Hitch Installation, Support Strap and 2 Bike Rack for a 1990 Mazda Miata
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Support Strap, # 18050, is a strap that is designed to wrap around a bike rack or cargo carrier and helps to provide extra support to the receiver when carrying hitch mounted bike racks and cargo carriers. There is a rubber coated hook on one end of the strap that will hook into the trunk or hatch lip, the other end loops around the rack or carrier and the cam buckle is used to take up slack in the strap.

This rack has a shank that rises about 2 inches for clearance and is very easy to load and unload. The ratcheting hooks are easy to use and they hold the bikes very securely.

  • Bike Rack Needed for a 2018 Honda Fit with Plastic Spoiler
    I do have a solution for you to use a 2-bike bike rack with your 2018 Honda Fit, but since the spoiler is plastic none of the trunk mount options are going to be compatible. The all use straps that would go over the spoiler and could very likely damage it. Instead what you need to do is install a trailer hitch and use a hitch mounted bike rack. Although this is different than what you are wanting the perks of using this system include not having any bike or bike rack contact with your...
