Rotating Arms with Ratcheting Wheel Hooks

Kuat Sherpa 2.0 ratcheting wheel hooks

The Sherpa has ratcheting hooks that grab your bikes firmly by the front wheel - not the frame. It's perfect for carrying carbon bikes or bikes with a custom paint job. To load a bike, simply place your front wheel in the cradle, rotate the arm up and over the wheel, and press down firmly on the ratcheting hook.

Folding Front-Wheel Cradles

Kuat Sherpa 2.0 front wheel cradles

The large, folding front-wheel cradles accommodate most bike wheels. The hinged cradles flip up to hold your wheels in place and fold down so they're out of the way when the rack is folded up against your vehicle. There is a hook-and-loop strap on each cradle that wraps around the tray and through the spokes of your wheel to hold the wheel in place. You can also use the straps to secure the cradles flat so they don't flop around when the rack is in the stored position.

Pivoting Rear-Wheel Cradles with Ratcheting Straps

Kuat Sherpa 2.0 2 rear wheel cradles

The pivoting rear-wheel cradles self-adjust to accommodate your bike's wheelbase. Set your bike's rear wheel into the cradle and it will automatically adjust to grip your wheel at the optimal angle. Use the ratcheting strap to secure your wheel to the cradle.

Foot Lever for Easy Tilting and Folding

Kuat Sherpa 2.0 folding design

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

Kuat Sherpa tilting rackKuat Sherpa folding rack

The foot lever lets you tilt the rack down with bikes loaded for cargo area access. It leaves both hands free so that you can lower the rack in a controlled manner. When the rack is unloaded you can fold it up for storage.

Tool-Free Installation With Anti-Rattle Device

Kuat Sherpa 2.0 without tools installation

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 Sherpa 2.0 locking cableKuat Sherpa 2.0 locking cable

The Sherpa 2.0 includes locks to secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle. The 1/4" thick cable threads around your bike frames, passes through the cable's looped latch tip, and inserts into the lock on the outside bike tray. Coil up the cable and store it in your vehicle or bike bag when it's not in use.

Kuat Sherpa 2.0 locking kitch pin

To lock the rack to your hitch, simply insert the hitch pin and connect the lock to the end of the pin. The locks are keyed alike so you can use the same keys for both locks.

I had waited a long time to get this Kuat rack and I am glad I did. The build quality is excellent and using the box as an assembly platform is a nice touch. It went together easily with 3 bolts and secures to the hitch very securely with little to no wobble once the adjustment knob is tightened. My last hitch rack used a threaded bolt to secure it to the hitch and that did an ok job to reduce sway but so far this method is much better. Loading bikes is easy and it holds then securely. I haven't used the security cable yet, other than to test it out, but like anything else I consider it more of a deterrent than anything else as I doubt I would leave my bikes loaded w/o being able to keep eyes on them. Overall this was a good purchase and etrailer was fantastic throughout the process as well. They offered an alternative when I ordered as this item was out of stock, but this is what I wanted so I was prepared to wait. Then to my surprise it shipped almost 2 months earlier than expected! They of course notified me when it was shipped and when it was delivered and made sure I had a contact at etrailer if I had any questions with the rack. Overall it was a great process and a great looking and functioning rack.

- SH22B

This rack is great. The adjustable tilt feature is convenient. The price point is solid for the quality. The 4 star rating is simply because some of the plastic melted due to exhaust heat when the rack was in the bikeless up position. Küat warranty and customer service was great. They are replacing the hook. If you're thinking of this for a 2021 Forester, definitely get the Hi-lo adapter so that the hook doesn't sit in line with the exhaust.

Thank you for your review. Kuat does make a hi-lo adapter part # HL20B
Kuat Hi-Lo Hitch Extender - 2" Hitches - 7" or 10" Extension - 2-1/8" Rise/Drop
to raise the bike rack up 2 to avoid the exhaust pipe. However it does extend the setup by 7 so it puts extra leverage on the bike rack, for that reason the tongue weight rating of the hitch is decreased by 50. That weight rating includes the weight of the bikes and the rack itself which is 32 lbs.

After reviewing and researching the other manufacturers of a 2 bike rack, we decided on the Sherpa 2.0. It was easy enough to assemble, just follow the directions. We used it for the first time this morning on the back of my Outback and we were both pleased at how stable it was. Easy to mount our bikes and dismount. We plan to use it on our Mustang and my hubs '68 F100 as well. So far, very pleased with the performance and appearance. We purchased the black one for a 2' receiver.

great! So easy to use for our 2 bikes.

The bike rack seems very sturdy and durable and was easy to assemble. When I ordered it in July we, my wife and I, had hoped to have it for our vacation in late August but that didn’t happen because of Covid-19, we finally got it in mid-October. etrailer did keep me updated as I called several times and I do appreciate working with them. We’re hoping for one more warm weekend in October or November so we can go biking and try the bike rack out

- SH22B

This is a great product. A few of my friends have it and, after some research, I knew it would be purfect for me. I also ordered the etrailer e98912 hitch at the same time, We installed the hitch and bike rack based on etrailer videos and product instructions. All went smoothly. Plus, I want to express my appreciation to Tammie, the etrailer agend that guided me through the purchase process.

- SH22B

Your website was so helpful I knew exactly what I was getting. No surprises. The Kuat product is definitely very high quality so I look for many years of use. My favorite features are the light weigh (32#), anti wobble adjustment, and the striking finish. I may leave it on my SUV just for looks!

The Kuat rack is such a breeze to put on and load our bikes. We have taken our bikes on twice as many trips as in the past. In fact I credit the ease of using Kuat rack for enticing us to buy two new bikes. We just returned from our second trip on the Virginia Creeper. Thanks Kuat for the revival of our biking habit!

We are very pleased with the Kuat Sherpa Rack. We really like the way that it tilts out of the way so we can still load/unload items from the back of our SUV. Shortly after receiving it, we hauled our bikes from Ohio to Florida and back, and it worked well. We were also VERY pleased with the timely shipment of the rack. We knew it was backordered, but as soon as it came in, etrailer shipped it that same day, and it arrived quickly on the expected date. The videos and information online are very helpful as are the people who answer the phones at the company. Positive experience ordering both this item and the trailer hitch!

- SH22B

It was a pleasure doing business with you and the discount price made it that much better. Thank you for the excellent service.

- SH22B

We have been very satisfied with our purchase. We have used it to transport our bike on long distance drives. It is easy to use, simple to install on the vehicle. Holds the bikes secure while driving. The rack was recommended by a friend. I would give the same recommendation.

- SH22B

Great bike rack for our CRV Honda, I had the dealership install the bar underneath the vehicle. The rest is so easy to install and stow when not needed. We have made several trips on the interstate for 8 hours or more and you really do not even notice the racks or bikes. We love the drop down lever which allows access to rear hatch. Also the security lock and cable will give you piece of mind when stopping at a restaurant to eat and not worry that your bikes and or rack will be stolen. The bikes are so easy to load and secure, and do not loosen up when on the road. We are very happy with our purchase!

excellent!! I use my rack with either our CRV or Ridgeline truck. Super easy to rig up, load bikes and take off. Bikes stay secure and ride along nicely at 80 mph. Very happy with our purchase.

I I have had several racks over many years but this is the best. One of the lightest in its class and well built to last. This my second Kurt Sherpa because a truck hit me in the back and bent the rack. It was still useable but the driver paid for a new one. This rack is not only strong but so easy to put your bike securely on it. Oh, did I mention etrailer is the best for research, purchase and customer service.

- SH22B

I can tell it’s a quality bike rack... the instructions were fairly clear but the [online video] made it a breeze. I have yet to drive with it on, but I can tell already it’s secure

- SH22B

Other than a few little snafus while attempting assembly, (put bolts in on wrong end), everything went together nicely. Directions could be a bit more precise, and parts should have identifying stickers with pointers or something to simplify trying to figure out what goes where, and in which direction. Might just be my super assembly skills. haha. Got it done, however - in about 30 minutes. Quality is great, looks good on car, and bike fits nicely. Very secure and sturdy. I'm in my 60's and I can easily get this rack onto the car, the bike on the rack, and open the back hatch with the bike loaded. Retirement-here I come! eTrailer customer service is outstanding.

- SH22B

Took a 3000 mile trip with this rack and it was rock solid all the way. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quality bike rack.

- SH22B

Just what I needed. I have considered multiple brands and models but ended up deciding to get the Sherpa 2.0, mainly because its lightweight and easy to set up. So far no regrets about it. Took it in three road trips already to carry two 29ers and it has performed really well, no issues about bikes coming into contact with each other. Highly recommended!

- SH22B

This bike rack is awesome! Really SOLID...we take it across the USA (long trips) and there is absolutely NO movement, rattle, etc! Very secure with hitch lock. Very quick and easy to install. I love the ‘tilt away’ feature. I also like the fact that eTrailer waits 1 yr after purchase to get review from customers...we actually have time to experience the product before weighing in! Thanks!

Absolutely love this rack...so easy to take on and off and so solid...now two years after initial use!

Amazing bike rack! I spent almost two months making a decision on which one to buy. Seeing this weighs about 1/2 of similar racks I finally chose it. For once I read the instructions and it was simple to assemble. When I loaded my bike my wife was in awe how simple it is to use. I love buying from etrailer. Never a problem and great prices too.

- SH22B

I have purchased from etrailer several times. They have always been extremely helpful in helping me make sure I have ordered the right size in tire chains and bike racks. Unlike most modern internet sellers, they are extremely personal and helpful. It feels like going to a neighborhood store. The Sherpa 2.0 is a fantastic bike rack and easy to assemble. I also saved over $100 buying from etrailer. Thank you, etrailer. John

- SH22B

Wow am I impressed with the service. This is my first experience of buying from etrailer. I spoke with two different associates and they were patient and very informed about the bike hitch. Thank you so much.

- SH22B

I purchased the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 bike rack . The bike rack is very well engineered, light weight and easy to install on your vehicle. We transported two bikes on a 7,000 mile road trip without incident. The rack also retracts with ease. Expect to use this bike rack for many years.

High quality for the money. Looking forward to a long useful life. Thanks,

Trailer was excellent to deal with. The price at checkout was less than posted. It was shipped the same day and arrived faster than expected. I am very pleased and will not hesitate to purchase from Etrailer again.

- SH22B

Second Kuat rack, as I bought a new vehicle with a 2" hitch vs. 1 1/4", LOVE the sherpa, small, light, EXTREMELY sturdy. After using the NV for the past 5+ years, Kuat has really stepped up their game in quality and competitive pricing. The lock design with a rubber cover is a bonus, the external cable/lock works well, finishes are awesome! Still have the NV, using it on another vehicle.

- SH22B

Easy to use. Secure and sturdy.

    The trailer hitch that I recommend for a 2019 Subaru Crosstrek is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13382. The Curt hitch is an excellent option because it has a hidden design so you only see the receiver tube under the bumper, not the bulky rear cross tube which makes for the cleanest install look. It offers a bolt-on install so no drilling or cutting is required and you can do this yourself at home. The bike rack that I recommend will be based largely on the type of bike. I took...

As you can see by the cut out that I added of the Sherpa's dimensions, it measures 1-5/8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the shank.

It seems like you have fenders on that bike. You will have to remove the fender so the hook makes contact with the tire. Wheel hooks are designed to go up against your brake and synch down on the tire. If you remove the fender, you won't see any damage to your bikes.

  • Bike Rack that Lets Rear Hatch Open on a 2017 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk
    We haven't yet had the chance to test fit the Kuat Sherpa # SH22B on a 2017 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. But I can tell you that there are several factors that will determine if the rear hatch can be opened with the rack tilted back and bikes loaded including the specific bikes and the trailer hitch on the vehicle. If they are road bikes or bikes with handlebars that don't stick out very far then there is a good chance there won't be interference. With mountain bikes/wide handlebars it is less...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2010 Audi Q5 that Would Allow a Kuat Sherpa to Fold Up

  • Will The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack Fit Inside The Trunk Of 2017 Honda CR-V?
    The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount - Black # SH22B is about 42-1/4" wide regardless of it being folded or not.

  • Should I Update My Locks on My Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack?
    If you have the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 # SH22B (2" hitches) or # SH12B (1-1/4" hitches), the racks already come with keyed-alike locks that involve a cable to secure your bikes to the rack and a locking hitch pin to lock the rack to the vehicle.

Also, it is important to note that there are no ways to 100% insure that your property will be safe from theft. For these reasons,...
