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

Sherpa 2.0 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

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 would have given 10 stars to Kuat for this product if possible! The included assembly instructions were not the best but I watched a couple online videos and was able to assemble and install on my Outback in 45 minutes or less! Ingenious how they used the box for easy assembly and the tools were awesome (not cheap metal cutouts that I've gotten before). I am amazed how light yet how solid the rack is. I did a test drive with our 2 Beach Cruisers on it and they barely budged. GREAT product and one of the best purchases I've made in a long time. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND.


Comments
Since purchasing our Kuat bike rack from etrailer a year ago my lovely wife and I have made several trips from the NC mountains to the coast with our Beach Crusiers in tow. At 68 I’m no spring chicken anymore and the Kuat rack never fails to amaze me at how easy it is to load our bikes on and off. And I’m so relieved when I look in my rear view mirror and see our bikes barley moving as we wind down the road! And the rack still looks like the day I got it! Thanks etrailer & Kuat!

My order was received on time and seems to be in good shape. I unpacked the bike rack and it seems to be a quality product, very sturdy. Because of work I have not assembled the rack or tried it out yet. Will have to give another review when I get to use it. But it appears that it will solve my bike transportation problems and allow me to use my bike more often. I am planning on taking my bike to work with me, so I can go riding after work. Before I would have to remove the front wheel from the bike to put it inside my Subaru. This should make life a lot easier on me, thanks Frank.

This rack is fantastic. Lightweight and very easy to use. Love the locks so that neither rack or bikes can be stolen. Used it on day one to take mountain bikes to the trails.


Comments
Still a fantastic rack. So easy to take on and off the vehicle. Lightweight and easy to store in garage when not regularly being used.

Absolutely love this bike rack. Super easy to mount. No rattle, fits snuggly in 2” hitch. Security lock gives peace of mind. Holds two bikes comfortably. Looks nice. Plenty of clearance for hatch to open when tilted and it’s easy to tilt with foot lever. I was also very pleased with the service from the etrailer team.

Took my time to pick out just the right platform rack. Absolutely hate to have to buy things twice. etrailer was just the place to do the research and eventually place the order. Can't find a better website with more objective information. That said, we are loving this choice. The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 is exactly the right fit for the truck (F150 4X4) and how we plan to use this unit to camp and bike. One of the critical features for us was that the platform rack, minus bikes, had to fit under the tailgate when gate was dropped fully down. Many, many of the otherwise very nice platform racks will not meet this requirement. Many of these will scrape your paint and dent your tailgate. With respect to the Kuat Sherpa, there is a full 2" clearance with the gate fully dropped, so no sweat there. Next, the unit had to be lightweight and with an easy on and off system. Heavy racks that require a ratchet to complete the install simply were not going to work for us. The Kuat is made out of tough tube aluminum, with a nice powder coat finish and weighs just over 30lbs, plus there are no tools required to install and secure it to the hitch. The rack locks in place with a simple hand-tightening cam system using a single, easy to get to, well-designed knob. Finally, carbon frame maybe in your future? Okay, again the Kuat fits the bill. This is a "no frame" contact, extremely easy bike load design. No exaggeration, the rack goes from garage to truck hitch, bikes loaded/secured, and then we're backing out of the drive in under 15 minutes. Did I mention how lightweight it is? Love the fact that I am thinking about the bike ride and not worrying about how I am getting the bikes there.


Comments
Absolutely love the Kuat bike rack. My wife uses it easily by herself whenever she wants, which happens to be almost daily, and we use it all the time to take the dog and bikes to the park. Cant imagine not having it and if that were the case, wed have to buy it all over again. In sum, my guess is that the preceding dialog subtly reveals how much I think of the product.

love the light weight because it saves on the little range my EV has. i wish it was shifted to the left of the car 6 inches to keep it from hanging off the right side. or maybe a longer mount centered for large size 29” enduro trail bikes with 1250mm wheelbase. It’s dangerous if it sticks out the car and someone I know opened the door on her bike that I was carrying as I was pulling away and destroyed her rear wheel. Her bike was a medium. It stick out nearly 10” or so. I had to tighten the nuts on mount rotation screw and the mount survived without issue. I like that I can open the rear hatchback without moving the folded up mount. I also like the lock cable for security from snatch and run piece of mind while I nap in car when charging. It’s been supreme easy to use although if you go too tight on the rear wheel strap, the notch lever will need some give to release especially when at angles from rim curve. I would definitely buy again especially if they update these slight issues

Excellent bike rack! Very easy to mount and transport two bikes. We love it so much, we will be purchasing the 4 rack bike rack by Kuat form etrailer and give the two rack to my parents!

This is a great rack for our mountain bikes- very study, easy to use (both putting bikes on and off and tilting to access vehicle with bikes on or off), light enough to take off or install easily, lots of great features. It works well on both our Subaru and with our truck mounted camper, travels well on highways and rough roads. We looked at many racks and this one is great. Only 2 small problems- we have to adjust the bike seats down to carry them on the rack and one piece fell off over the tilt but still works without it.

Great! We still love it

I have had the Kuat rack for a year and find it to be a solid way to transport my bikes. Pros: Build quality is top notch. Bike rack has been mounted to my car for the entire year and not stored inside the garage. I ride 4 times a week and wanted to keep it on the car at all times. The rack has shown no signs of fading, rusting or feeling like it’s getting wore out. Bikes mount ok and remain seated while driving lever different kinds of material. Cons: This is just a small gripe due to the bikes I ride. When mounting large enduro style bikes figment in the cradle area for the tires can get pretty tight and awkward. I run 2.6 inch wide tires and had to add an additional strap to keep the tire from popping out. Yet again, just my own observation due to wide sized tires. Bottom line up front, best bike track for the money and long term investment.

Loved the kuat Serpa 2.0 bike rack on my 2021 4Runner. Sturdy w two mountain bikes on it and it Carrie’s them well. Highly recommended. The people from Etrailer has excellent customer service



- SH22G
by:

I am very pleased with the kuat Sherpa 2. I often carry two bikes and did so from vermont to South Carolina and back without a problem. One tip I would say is make sure the front tire is locked down with the hook as close to the forks as possible. If it’s to far forward on the tire the front of the bike can fall off in travel. Very well constructed and easy to use. I would recommend this product.

It was so worth the wait for this beautiful, lightweight bike rack. Really liked the in-box assembly directions. Easy to slide rack into the hitch , and love how it can be easily bent back to access the trunk with bikes still on rack. I bought this basically for it's lightweight feature, but it has so much more. Highly recommend!

Love this bike rack! It is way easier to use than our previous one. I like that it locks onto to hitch and that it has a lock for the bikes. The price at etrailer.com was great as was the customer service. We’ve had it a year now and we’ve had no problems with it.

Right off the top, this is an awesome bike rack. It's durable, light, and convenient getting my bike or bikes on and off. Easily fold up after bike or bikes are removed at the trail or at home when not in use. The anti-rattle feature is a plus because it make the rack steady too when traveling.

Comments here are about the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 (2 inch hitch) mounted on a 2019 VW Tiguan SE fitted with a Drawtite 76192 trailer hitch (also purchased from etrailer). Positives: This is a great bike rack! It's super light, easy to use, very well built, and it works just as it should. Negatives: Security is weak, just as with most other racks. (But security is easily improved.) Details: etrailer delivered the rack with lightning speed, of course. (Thanks!) Assembly was a breeze, and learning to mount and secure bikes was equally simple. The hitch cam works much better than I had expected --- no need for a wrench to get a steady-riding rack. And with two bikes mounted, there's no sway, no wobble, no noise, no worries. A great rack, really. One concern (pre-purchase) was about ground clearance. Photo #1 shows 2 bikes mounted. The vertical distance from the ground to the bottom of the rack is exactly 12 inches. That's more than adequate for negotiating my driveway, as well as all for the roads I've travelled so far. Another concern (pre-purchase) was about interference with the backup camera, mainly when the rack is folded up. Photo #2 shows the hitch in that position. The camera is located near the center of that yellow rectangle, so there's some clearance both above and below the outer (upper) tray. Photo #3 shows the Tiguan's camera display as I back into a parking space. So, yes, there is some interference but it's really not bad at all. If you're adept at using your backup camera, the folded up Sherpa 2.0 won't cause major difficulties. Negatives about the Sherpa 2.0 have to do with security. I've got little confidence in the Kuat hitch pin lock, and the cable for locking bikes to the rack is, per the cliche, best at keeping honest people honest. But, a lot of shopping around uncovered few (if any) competing racks that are much better about security. Therefore: Choose your rack based on other criteria, and plan to spend extra money to deal with security. Given that view, the Sherpa 2.0 is an easy winner. 5 stars! On security: I leave a bike rack on my car for 9 months of the year; hence my concern about the backup camera. Photo #4 shows a closeup of the Sherpa 2.0 on my Tiguan. That's a Big Brand high security chain looped around the inner (lower) tray. The padlock passes over the Kuat hitch pin lock (protecting it a little) and then passes through the chain ring of the Drawtite hitch. It will take some effort to steal my Sherpa 2.0. The chain is 100 cm long --- just enough that the rack can fold down to carry bikes. But it's too short to allow the rack to tilt downward fully, so tailgate access is impacted. Photo #5 shows the situation with two trail bikes mounted. That's actually more than enough room to get at the cargo area, and with road bikes mounted the tailgate opens fully. So it's a very minor problem; a slightly longer chain would avoid it but look sloppy most of the time. Typically, I don't need to lock the bikes to the rack, but for those times when I do, I've got two more Big Brand chains each 160 cm long. Each chain can lock one bike's frame and the other bike's front wheel to the chain that protects the rack. This is not ideal, I know. But it's a big improvement over the security of any well-known rack. And the cost of those three chains is tiny compared to replacing a Sherpa 2.0 plus two bikes.

Overall This bike rack seems very well made. I am not concerned about the bikes coming off. I am a little skeptical about the durability of the plastic straps and troughs for wheels but so far no problems.

A must have feature that we wanted. etrailer.... thank you very much for the great price and shipping. Kuat....thank you for an outstanding bike rack!

  • Will Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Carrier Clear Back Of Rear Mounted Spare Tire On 2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser
    The easiest way to find out if any hitch accessory will work with your rear-mounted spare on your FJ Cruiser is to take a quick measurement. You will need a tape measure and a straight edge like a yardstick or a dowel. Place the straight edge vertically against the back of the bumper or spare tire, letting it extend below the trailer hitch receiver opening. Then measure from the center of the hitch pin to the straight edge. This will give you the distance you need to clear the bumper...

  • Measuring Clearance For Bike Carrier At Back Of 2000 Jeep Wrangler With Rear Mounted Spare
    I have attached a helpful article that explains how you can measure to make sure any hitch-mounted accessory will clear the spare tire on your 2000 Wrangler. Once you get the measurement for your Jeep you can check out the distance the Sherpa, part # SH22G needs for clearance. That distance is 7-1/2 inches form the center of the hitch pin when the bike carrier is folded up. When it is folded down the distance form the center of the hitch pin to the carrier is 11 inches.

  • Is it Normal for the Bike to Not Be Level on a Kuat Sherpa 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack?
    The reason why there is a slight slope on the rack is because it helps a bit with ground clearance with the weight of the bikes on the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack # SH22G. With the angle, it helps prevent drag in the back. I went ahead and attached some photos that show the angle.

    What size hitch do you have? Is it a 2 inch opening or a 1-1/4 inch opening? If it's a 2 inch opening you can use a hitch extension with the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 part # SH22G but you will be cutting the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent.

I am attaching dimensional photos of the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 # SH22G that you can use to see if you will be able to fully swing open your door as we haven't had the opportunity to test this out yet.

As you can see from the cut out, the distance from the hitch pin hole to the end of the shank is 1-5/8 inches, so that's all the space you need in your hitch receiver. The Sherpa 2.0 is a great choice as it offers a superb combination of function and style. It is easy to use with a knob that tightens the rack...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2016 Ford Escape
    I can help you get exactly what you need, including a rack that will allow you to open the trunk on your 2016 Ford Escape. The hitch I recommend for you is the Draw-Tite # 75782; this is a Class III, 2" hitch that is going to give you the most options for a high-quality bike rack. This hitch will still allow you to use the hands-free liftgate option on your Escape, though you may have to kick just to the side of the receiver tube. I've added a link showing this hitch being installed on...

  • Recommended Bike Rack and Trailer Hitch for 2017 Ford Explorer
    The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76034 would be a great choice for your 2017 Ford Explorer, and as far as a locking pin is concerned, you would only need one for the bike rack, and would not need need an additional one; any decent bike rack will have a hitch lock available and since you are (wisely) concerned with quality, the rack I think you'll really like is going to have that feature. I strongly recommend checking out the Kuat Sherpa 2.0, which comes in your choice...

  • Recommended Bike Rack and Trailer Hitch for 2017 Honda CR-V
    To start with I recommend getting a 2 inch hitch on your 2017 Honda CR-V because that will allow you more options for a bike rack. The best hitch for you is going to be the Draw-Tite # 76128 because it will not require trimming your CR-V's fascia like the option from Curt does. The Draw-Tite has a 2-inch receiver and is a complete bolt-on installation so no drilling into your Honda's frame will be required. I've attached a link to a video of this hitch being installed on a 2017 CR-V for...

    Yes, you are correct that the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 # SH22G does not have an add-on. However, if you are looking for a similar rack that has the add-on capability, I recommend the Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # NV22G along with the 2-Bike Add-On for Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack # NA22G.
