Kuat NV 2.0 loaded on vehicle

The Kuat NV Base platform-style rack lets you transport 4 bikes of almost any size, shape, or frame style. A detachable 2-bike add-on lets you easily convert the rack to a 2-bike carrier. Ratcheting wheel hooks and sliding wheel straps hold your bikes with no frame contact. The rack tilts with bikes loaded for cargo area access and it folds up for storage. The aluminum rack has a dock for an optional work stand (TDKB - sold separately) for on-the-go repairs, it installs without tools, and it includes locks to secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle.

Detachable 2-Bike Add-On

Kuat NV 2.0 2-bike add-on

There is an included detachable 2-bike add-on that lets you convert the rack from a 4-bike rack to a 2-bike rack. Simply remove 4 hex head bolts with the included Allen key and slide the extension out of the base.

Adjustable Arms with Ratcheting Wheel Hooks

Kuat NV 2.0 wheel hooks

Ratcheting hooks grab your bikes firmly by the front wheels - not the frames. These hooks allow you to rapidly load and unload your bikes, and they won't scratch or scuff your bike paint. Each hook adjusts in 2-mm increments to ensure a snug fit over your wheel, and it releases with the push of a button.

Kuat NV 2.0 pivoting arms

The wheel hooks are mounted on arms that pivot nearly 180 degrees from left to right. This makes it easier to load when compared with a rack that has the hooks mounted on a central post. To load simply set your bike in the wheel cradles, rotate the arms up over the wheels, and press the hooks down over the wheels until snug.

Kuat NV 2.0 front wheel cradles

The front wheel cradles are extra-wide to accommodate fat bike wheels.

Sliding Ratcheting Straps

Kuat NV 2.0 ratcheting straps

The rear-wheel ratcheting straps let you transport bikes with a wide variety of wheelbases. The straps slide freely along grooves in the wheel trays - just move a strap into position underneath your bike's rear wheel. A quick-release button on each strap buckle makes it easy to free the rear wheel to remove your bikes. 2 extender straps are included for use with 2 fat bikes. Additional extender straps (APBK - sold separately) are available if you have more than 2 fat bikes.

Folding and Tilting Design

Kuat NV 2.0 foot lever

The foot lever on the base is easily accessible even with your bikes loaded. No more crawling through bikes or squeezing between the rack and the vehicle to hit the tilt release lever.

The rack tilts down - with or without bikes loaded - so you can access your vehicle's rear cargo area.

Kuat NV 2.0 tilting and folding design

When the rack is unloaded you can fold it up for storage. This makes it easier to park in small lots at the trail head or in cramped parking garages, and it keeps the rack out of the way of other vehicles and riders.

Optional Repair Stand

Kuat NV 2.0 Trail Doc

The Trail Doc (TDKB - sold separately) is a handy repair and maintenance stand that attaches to the front of the rack. It grabs your bike by the seat post or top tube and lets you position your bike as needed for adjustments and on-the-go repairs. Easy-to-use pressure clamps let you raise or lower the stand, rotate it on its base, and rotate the clamp arm. It can be locked into place to prevent theft and includes a cap for the housing if you prefer to use the rack without it.

Tool-Free Installation with Anti-Rattle Device

Kuat NV 2.0 anti-rattle device

The knob at the front of the shank lets you quickly and easily install the rack. Just slide the shank into your hitch and turn the knob until snug. The knob deploys an anti-rattle wedge inside the shank to help take play out of the hitch connection. The locking hitch pin has an Allen tool on the end that further tightens the hand knob if you are still experiencing rattle after hand-tightening.

Complete Security for Bikes and Rack

Kuat NV 2.0 locking cable

Each wheel tray has an integrated cable lock that lets you secure your bike to the rack. A 1/4" thick, braided steel cable extends from the end of the wheel tray, threads through your bike's frame, and locks back onto itself.

Kuat NV 2.0 locking hitch pin

A locking hitch pin is also included to secure the rack to your vehicle. It's keyed alike with the cable lock so you only need 1 key for the rack.

Quality bike rack. Easy to put together and install. Very solid. Keeps bikes secure and doesn’t bounce around unlike my Thule bike rack. I purchased this rack after almost losing new mountain bikes as I was driving from the carrier bouncing around. It also has integrated cable locks. I bought the additional extension to carry up to 4 bikes. The only criticism is that the extension uses a different type of cable lock with a different key.

- BA22B-BA02B

This rack definitely has some pros and cons (as do most racks). A minor frustration is that despite ordering the rack and add-on at the same time, the keys don’t match so if locking three or more bikes you need two different keys (this has only really irritated me when it was raining). As other reviewers have mentioned, this thing is heavy. Neither my wife nor kids can lift it to put it on or get it off the car by themselves. The downside is that given the size of the rack it is not real convenient to just leave it on the car. When the rack is in the up position, it is impossible to get in the back so it is necessary to lower the rack each time you want to get in. The other downside is that the rack significantly cuts down on visibility when backing up. All that being said, the rack is rock solid and the bikes are very secure. The rack is great for extended trips. When loaded and tipped down, it is great to be able to open and access the back. The spacing of the bikes is great and I don’t have to spend 15 minutes figuring out how to slide four bikes in just the right spot to make them all fit as I did with my old rack. Best of all the bikes are only sustaining damage on the trail, not on the back of the car! Despite some minor annoyances, I highly recommend this rack. As for assembly, my 13 year old put it together by himself in about 20 minutes (I promised him i would include that fact).

In the past year we have had some bike upgrades. With three or four modern mountain bikes of a similar size on the rack it is more of a challenge to make them fit. I need to have an allen wrench handy to adjust the bars andor seats for travel. Other than that, the rack has held up great with heavy and frequent use.

We needed to move up from our Saris Bones 3 rack now that our youngest is on a big girl bike. We initially went for a budget platform rack which was (not surprisingly) subjected to a recall. After an incredible amount of research, I opted for the Kuat NV 2.0 Base. I took advantage of the etrailer price pledge program and was very satisfied with the etrailer staff who were very easy to deal with both on the phone and online. Following my order, etrailer inadvertently sent me the incorrect base model. The sent me the 1.25 inch instead of 2.0 inch model and as the shipping label covered the hitch size I only discovered this after opening and unpacking it (thereby having to repack and re-ship it). This inconvenience notwithstanding, etrailer was very apologetic, paid for the return shipping and sent out the correct 2.0 inch model. Unpacking and assembly was easy (the second time...and I learned the valuable lesson of taking photos of the unpacking in the event you need to repack it). You certainly get what you pay for with Kuat! The fit and finish are first rate and the rack's design, in my opinion, makes it the most intuitive, cleanest and best looking rack out there. I was considering the RockyMounts Split Rail 2+2 (similar design and athletics and a bit lighter) but I am so glad I went with Kuat. I mounted it on my 06 Pilot today in less than 5 minutes with my wife's help (though it can be accomplished solo), locked the pin and tightened the anti-rattle mechanism for a rock solid mount. All bikes fit on it like a dream (my 29er, wife's mountain bike and 2 kids mountain bikes...have not tried by road bike yet but I don't anticipate any issues). Very impressed with the rack and my etrailer experience.

With a SUV we didn't want to hoist our bikes on the roof (we are rather short in our family), so we looked for a hitch rack that could fit our 4 bikes. The NV base + the addon works great at this. Assembly is not the easiest since it can be tricky to get the bolts to line up while holding in place, if you have another person to help that will make it tons easier. Loading and unloading a bike is very easy and so far the bikes are always securely on without any issue. The locks are ok, nothing fancy, and nothing that will stop a determined thief, I consider them mostly a "slow them down a little" item. My only gripe is how heavy it is. We live in the city and plan on removing it from the car while not in use, and that is a bit of a chore with how heavy it is. Overall if you are looking for a great 4 bike hitch bike, can't really go wrong with it

I worked with Katie and she's amazing! Her knowledge of the available products was deep and very helpful, she made the process of ordering the bike rack very easy, she followed up post sale to make sure all was okay. Five stars for sure! The Kuat NV 2 was fairly easy to put together (need an extra set of hands) and my fat tire bike fits it perfectly. Great quality and I'm VERY happy with the rack. Bike doesn't move at all while underway.

- BA22B-BA02B

Got the bike rack in a great time, and have had it for a year and is still awesome, no banging bikes, and super easy and smooth to put on

Still same great product, well worth it

Amazing customer service! Called about an update of my order late in the evening and they were super helpful. I will defiantly recommend and purchase from them again.

- BA22B-BA02B

The rack is heavy and somewhat cumbersome due to the weight to attach to your hitch mount. If you have mountain bikes, be aware that with the longer bar widths and dropper post setup it will take some finessing when loading 4 bikes. The conversion from a 4 bike carrier to 2 Bike is also cumbersome due to the bolts that have to be unthreaded.

- BA22B-BA02B

The Kuat NV 2.0 Base 4-bike is really well made but heavy. Assembly and installation took about an hour and definately requires two people. Fits four bikes well and is really easy to use.

- BA22B-BA02B

I love my new bike rack, Kuat is top of the line!

- BA22B-BA02B

We literally could not be happier with Etrailer! We placed an order at 6:30pm on a Wednesday and at 8:30pm the same evening we got an email saying “thank you! Ypur Order has been shipped” it was here on our porch on Friday. I couldn’t believe it. Unbelievable customer service, QUALITY (we love our hitch and bike rack!) and better prices than I’ve seen anywhere else.

- BA22B-BA02B

The rack shipped timely and box was slightly damaged. Kuat really packages their items well and nothing inside was damaged. The rack was very easy to put together. I purchased the add on, which was also easy to connect. Even though it’s considered light for a 4 bike platform it’s still got some weight to it. I was able to lift it with no problem and attached it to our Honda Pilot. Wow, it was so nice and easy to load my bikes. You then turn the stabilizer knob to prevent it was swaying and off you go. It’s easy to lower and raise. It’s well made and I am glad we bought it. I really like the fact that it’s aluminum and easy to adjust for various bikes.

- BA22B-BA02B

I really like this product so far. Easy to assemble, well engineered, well built. Makes hauling our bikes super easy. I recommend it.

While heavy and expensive, this rack is the best bike rack we have ever owned. It holds the bikes securely and well away from each other, preventing scratching. I love the feature where you can tighten the rack into the receiver and it's rock solid. This is one quality piece of gear. In this case, you get what you pay for.

- BA22B-BA02B

We purchased this same product from etrailer.com some time ago. It was stolen, along with our old Toyota FJ Cruiser last year. So we purchased another (same) bike rack from etrailer.com. Their web site, service and promptness are excellent. Also, and most iimportant, their prices are good. We highly recommend them. Also, as an avid bicylist for 40 years, the Kuat bike rack ROCKS ! etrailer.com had the best price anywhere.

- BA22B-BA02B

Awesome bike platform. Assembly instructions are straightforward (although I brought it down to a UHaul dealer to assemble for $20 tip - they were installing the hitch anyway). It's very easy to use, sturdy with hardly any sway. The ordering and delivery was easy and quick and the price on etrailer was extremely competitive!

- BA22B-BA02B

One of the locks didn’t work at first. Kuat customer service was attentive and helpful. They sent me parts to fix it promptly as it was my preference. The rack is fantastic. Durable, easy to use, good looking, locks are secure, and doesn’t rattle around at all.

Sturdy as all get out, easy to assemble and works great with all my bikes (29er, road, wife's cross and 2 different kid sizes). Even better than the rack itself (and that's hard to beat) was Nick C. at etrailer and the customer service provided on my order. I'll spare the details but after an issue came up with my order Nick was quick to offer options and resolution to the problem. Great work making me a customer for any future trailer needs! -

Excellent product! Also saved $200 on average from other companies by ordering through Etrailer. Will definitely use them again!

  • Comparison of Kuat NV 2.0 and Kuat NV 2.0 Base 4-Bike Platform Bike Racks
    The difference between the Kuat NV 2.0 # NV22G-NA22G and the Kuat NV 2.0 Base # BA22B-BA02B is the bike repair stand. The repair stand is included on the NV 2.0 but not the NV 2.0 Base. It can be added to the Base using # TDKB.

  • Can Kuat NV 2.0 Convert From 4-Bike to 2-Bike Carrier?
    I'd be happy to confirm for you that yes, the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 4-Bike Platform Rack # BA22B-BA02B can indeed convert from a 4-bike carrier to a 2-bike carrier. To do this, there are 4 hex head bolts that you remove with an Allen key (which is included) and slide it right out. The only thing the NV 2.0 # NV22B-NA22B comes with that is different than the base is the bike repair stand # TDKB, so if you are not going to use it you're better off saving some money and going with the NV 2.0...

    The reason that the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 4-Bike Platform Rack part # BA22B-BA02B cannot be used on the back of a trailer is because the manufacturer says not to. The reason they say not to is because of the pivot point this rack has. The amount of movement that a hitch mounted accessory on the back of a trailer is going to be faced with is far more than that of a hitch mounted accessory on the back of a vehicle. The reason for the has to due with the increased distance from the rear axle. This...

  • Recommended 4 Bike Platform Style Bike Rack for a 2012 Toyota Sienna XLE
    Four mount platform bike racks are great options for families to transport 4 of their bikes but since your 2012 Toyota Sienna XLE sits so close to the ground and requires more clearance to open the rear hatch I'm afraid that you will not be able to completely open the rear hatch of your Sienna with a platform style carrier (see attached video of the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE # HR1400Z as an example).

  • Can the Kuat NV 2.0 # BA22B-BA02B be Used as Only a 2-Bike Rack
    The Kuat NV 2.0 # BA22B-BA02B that you referenced can be split and be just a 2 bike rack if you only needed to carry 2 bikes. And then you could easily install the add-on section to make it a 4-bike rack. The add-on section though can not be used as an independent bike rack though. It can only be used as an expansion for the base portion of the rack.

    The Kuat NV 2.0 Base 4-Bike Platform Rack like part # BA22B-BA02B is only offered for 2" hitches. There are separate adapters that allow a 2" bike rack to be used in a 1-1/4" hitch but these cut the capacity of the trailer hitch in half which will not leave you with enough left for a bike rack and four bikes.

Inno tells me that a 33 inch wheelbase bike will just fit on the rack. The Kuat NV 2.0 4-bike, part # BA22B-BA02B will easily accommodate a 20 inch kid's bike with a 33 inch wheelbase, but a # 016-025-00-00 adapter for each kid's bike will be needed.

The NV is widely considered to be the best bike rack out there so this would be a really great choice that you'd definitely be happy with.

  • 4-Bike Bike Rack Recommendation to Clear Spare Tire on 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon
    The Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR should fit the bill to clear the spare tire on your 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon.

    Yes, the Kuat Hi-Lo Hitch Extender # HL20B can be used with your Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Rack like # BA22B-BA02B. The only thing you will want to keep in mind is that the adapter does reduce the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch by 50 percent. For example if the hitch on your Jeep has a tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds, this will be reduced to 175 pounds when using the Hi-Lo Extender. This means the combined weight of the NV Carrier (around 82 pounds) and your loaded bikes...

This hitch model is designed for either the 144" or 170" wheelbase Sprinter vans with the factory step bumper and is a confirmed fit. I recommend the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 4-Bike Platform Rack # BA22B-BA02B as a solid option to carry your 4 bikes for an outing. The ratcheting hooks and straps mount the bikes by the tire so...

  • RockyMounts SplitRail Compared to Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Racks
    One of the biggest differences between the Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Platform Rack # NV22G-NA22G and the RockyMounts SplitRail part # RKY11404-4 is going to be the price. The SplitRail is less expensive. It weighs a few lbs less than the NV as well at 76 lbs compared to 86 lbs. So for those reasons I would probably go with the RockyMounts instead. Unless you really want the bike repair stand that's built into the Kuat. The other thing the Kuat wins is stability on the road. If you check out the...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for 2020 Chevy Equinox
    We have exactly what you need for your 2020 Chevy Equinox to get you and your family out riding together. For a trailer hitch I recommend the Draw-Tite # 76419 because it has a hidden crosstube which gives it a really clean look once installed. I have attached a sample installation video and some pictures of this on a 2019 Equinox that you can check out. Then for a bike rack I recommend either the Kuat NV 2.0 Base # BA22B-BA02B which is a high-quality platform bike rack that grips...

  • Comparing Kuat NV 2.0 And Kuat NV 2.0 Base Hitch Mounted Bike Carriers
    There are a few minor differences between the Kuat NV 2.0 bike carrier, part # NV22G-NA22G, and the Kuat NV 2.0 Base carrier, par # BA22B-BA02B. Both bike carriers have a 60-lb capacity per bike when carrying just 2 bikes but when the add-on is attached the weight capacity drops to 40-lbs per bike. The biggest difference is the distance from the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the carrier when folded up or down. On the NV 2.0, the distance when the rack is folded up is 7-inches...

  • Rockymounts Split Rail 4 or Kuat Base 2.0 with 2 Bike Add On Comparison
    I really like the RockyMounts Split Rail # RKY11404-4 because it allows you to go from a 2 bike to either a 3 bike or 4 bike rack depending on the need. The Kuat NV 2.0 # BA22B-BA02B is regarded by many as the nicest bike around but it's either 2 or 4. Split rail comes with a wall rack which is super convenient too. The Split Rail has a reputation for being very easy to operate, including the raise/lower lever, and has a fantastic anti-rattle device. If I were in your situation that's...

  • Swinging 4-Bike Bike Rack Needed for a 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited Sahara with 18 Spare
    From the center of the hitch pin hole to the handle of the Yakima FullSwing # Y02465 is 6". Since the handle is making contact with the spare tire on your 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited Sahara it sounds like a better option would be to use the Yakima BackSwing # Y02483 with a 4-bike bike rack. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the BackSwing is 8-1/2" while that same measurement to the center of the operating handle is 11-3/4" (see attached picture). If you...

  • Why Does Thule Apex XT Swinging Bike Rack Pivot to Passenger Side
    The Thule Apex Swing XT # TH9027XT will work great to give you complete rear access to the rear doors of your vehicle but it swings to the passenger side like they all mostly do. This is the case because in the event you were on the side of the highway and needed in your hatch you'd be able to pivot the bike rack to the passenger side and not out into traffic to get to the hatch. If you really did want a setup that swung to the opposite side you'd need the adapter # PVD20B with a Kuat...

  • Recommended 4 Bike Platform Rack For 2012 Toyota Sienna With Curt Hitch
    Thanks for the info on your trailer hitch # C13105. That hitch puts the center of the hitch pin hole back 5-1/2 inches from the outside of the bumper. The Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches - Aluminum - Tilting - Gunmetal Gray # NV22G-NA22G has a distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the rack of 10-1/2 inches or 5 inches from your bumper.

  • Can the Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Platform Rack Be Used On a Motorhome
    The Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Platform Racks like part # NV22G-NA22G are not rated for use on motorhomes since the ride is rougher back there. Instead, I'd recommend the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4 Bike Platform Rack part # HR1400Z which is a similar bike rack that is rated for use on a motorhome. In regards to the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 4-Bike Platform Rack part # BA22B-BA02B and part # NV22B-NA22B, the difference is indeed the bike repair stand.

  • Will Kuat NV 2.0 2-Bike Add-On Fit Older Kuat NV Bike Rack
    The 2-Bike Add-On # NA22G is only compatible with the Kuat NV 2.0. If you do have the original you will either need to find it at a parts store or unfortunately purchase the NV 2.0 for the upgrade. Should you decide to go this route we have the NV 2.0 Base # BA22B-BA02B which basically just lacks the bike stand, or the complete NV 2.0 rack with comes in Gunmetal Gray # NV22G-NA22G or Metallic Black # NV22B-NA22B. Attached are review videos for both options that you can reference....

  • Will Add-on for Kuat NV Fit the Kuat NV 2.0
    The add-on from the original Kuat NV will not fit on the new NV 2.0 # NV22G. The add-on for the NV 2.0 is # NA22G. Or they can be purchased together with # NV22G-NA22G. Another model is the Kuat NV 2.0 Base # BA22B. It's very similar to the NV 2.0 except it extends slightly further from the vehicle when installed and does not include the bike repair stand. It also has an available add-on to 4 bikes using # BA02B or to purchase both together use # BA22B-BA02B.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and Bike Rack For 4 Bikes Compatible with 2015 Subaru Outback
    For your 2015 Subaru Outback, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class III - 2" # 75673. This is a very sturdy hitch that will give you the support you need for your bike carrier. The only measurements that will be important for your bike rack is the height of the receiver which is 15 inches from the ground to the top most inner portion of the receiver and the center of the hitch pin hole will be 5 inches from the outer most part of the bumper. I've attached...
