Pivoting Arms with Ratcheting Hooks

 ratcheting wheel hooks

The StageTwo has ratcheting hooks that grab your bikes firmly by the front wheel, so it won't scratch or scuff the paint. 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. To unload your bike, press the button on the upright arm to release the ratcheting hook, and slide the hook up.

Sliding Rear Wheel Cradles

 sliding wheel trays

The wheel trays have cradles with ratcheting straps to secure your rear wheel to the rack. The cradles slide along the tray to accommodate bikes with a variety of wheelbases. To secure your wheel, run the strap over the rim and back down through the strap buckle and pull tight. To remove your bike, press the quick-release button on the buckle and undo the strap.

Stadium-Style, Tiered Trays

tiered trays

The StageTwo has stadium-style, tiered trays that hold your bikes at different levels to help avoid bike-to-bike contact. The increased angle also adds ground clearance for backing down steep driveways.

Front-Mounted Lever for Easy Tilting and Folding

 folding and tiliting design cable locks

The rack tilts down with your bikes loaded. So, whether you're at the trail or the grocery store, you don't have to remove your bikes to access your cargo area. It also folds up when not in use. This leaves a smaller footprint, so you can keep the rack on your vehicle to park in your garage. And if you want to remove it, it doesn't take up as much space to store it.

 folding and tiliting design

To make tilting and folding easier, the release lever is mounted on the front of the rack. This means you won't have to reach through or around your bikes with one hand to reach the lever, while supporting the rack's weight with the other, when lowering the rack. Instead, you'll be able to hold the rack with both hands the entire time.

Tool-Free Installation with Anti-Rattle Device

 cable locks cable locks

The rack quickly installs in your hitch receiver, without the need for tools. Just slide the shank into your hitch and turn the knob until snug. Turning the knob deploys an anti-rattle wedge in the shank to help take play out of the hitch connection. Insert the safety pin into the hitch pin hole to help prevent the shank from sliding in the receiver.

Complete Security

 loaded on vehicle

The rack includes locks to secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle. Integrated cable locks thread around your bikes' frames and inserts into the lock at the top of each arm. The cables store inside the arms when not in use.

loaded on vehicle

The lock on the hand knob secures the rack to your vehicle. The hand knob will spin freely when locked so a would-be thief can't operate it. The locks are keyed alike, so you only need to use 1 key.

  • Will the Yakima Stage 2 Rack fit a 2011 Toyota RAV4 w/ Rear Spare Tire Carrier?
    We haven't tested this bike rack out on a 2011 Toyota RAV4 with the rear mounted spare tire so I called Yakima to ask them about your question. They didn't have that specific of information on their Yakima StageTwo Bike Rack for 2 Bikes item # Y47VR but they were able to give me a partial answer and a way for you to confirm it will work. You will have no problems with your bike contacting the rear of your RAV4 when mounted on the carrier. In order to confirm the carrier will work in the...

  • Best Hitch Mounted Bike Rack For Carrying 2 Bikes Off-Road
    I recommend the Yakima StageTwo Bike Rack # Y47VR as being the best for carrying 2 bikes while off-roading in the desert. This rack is capable of carrying 2 bikes weighing up to 42lbs each while being used off-road. The design of this rack makes it great for off-road use as the carrier angles up away from your tow vehicle giving you increased departure angle. This will reduce the chances of the rack dragging when on rocks and hills. The Kuat NV 2.0, Sherpa and Piston Pro specifically...

  • Does Yakima StageTwo Bike Rack Allow Tailgate to Open on 2022 Toyota Tacoma
    We tested the Yakima StageTwo bike rack on a 2022 Toyota Tacoma to see if it will allow the tailgate to open, and indeed it does, even with the bikes loaded. So all you have to do is tilt the rack down, and you can fully open your '22 Tacoma's tailgate. The StageTwo comes in your choice of two different colors: - Black: Yakima StageTwo Bike Rack # Y47VR - Gray: Yakima StageTwo Bike Rack # Y87VR

  • How to Install Yakima StageTwo and Ramp for Loading Heavy e-Bike
    The Yakima StageTwo Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # Y47VR is a wonderful new option from Yakima that can handle up to 2 bikes weighing 60 lbs each and you can definitely get the Loading Ramp # Y39VR to make loading/unloading much easier. We currently (March 2022) don't have a video of these 2 parts together but I'm linking the instructions for the ramp as well as a clip for you to check out. Basically there is a slit at the rear-tire-end of each tray that the hooks of this ramp fit into and keep...

  • Will Yakima StageTwo Bike Rack Work with Front Fender Bike
    If your e-Bike has really short fenders then you will be okay to use the Yakima StageTwo Bike Rack # Y47VR, but as a rule of thumb we recommend not using a wheel mount bike rack with a front-fendered bike just to avoid damaging the fender. For a standard fendered e-Bike I recommend checking out the Yakima OnRamp # Y36FR instead. The StageTwo is a new bike rack design from Yakima and doesn't have a direct predecessor to compare it to. The only other StageTwo Yakima released is just a different...

  • Best Hidden Trailer Hitch for a 2022 Honda CR-V With Hands-Free Liftgate
    For your application I recommend the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98848. This has a hidden crosstube and a matte black finish so it will really blend in with the fascia on your 2022 Honda CR-V, plus it won't interfere with the hands-free liftgate feature, although you may have to kick to either side of the receiver instead of just swinging your feet under the bumper. Attached is an installation video and a photo showing this hitch installed on a 2021 CR-V for you to check out. If...

  • Will Draw-Tite Hitch Fit a 2021 Porsche Macan S Model
    The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75940 will fit your 2021 Porsche Macan S. It looks like Draw-Tite recently (December 2021) updated their fit list to include the 2021 model and if you check out the attached clip from the linked instructions you can see that there are provisions for cutting the fascia on the S model. If you are planning on towing with this vehicle then you need wiring like the ZCI Wiring Kit # 119250KIT and a ball mount kit like part # 989900. If the purpose...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for Height and Looks on a 2022 Kia Telluride
    As far as height clearance goes all of the trailer hitches that fit your 2022 Kia Telluride will be similar. We haven't had the opportunity yet (November 2021) to install all 3 hitches on the exact same vehicle so I don't have a direct comparison though. I recommend going with the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e45ZR because it has the matte black finish that not only looks better than the traditional glossy black finish, but it also does a much better job of hiding any damage that...

  • 2022 Ford Escape Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a Bike Rack
    The trailer hitch that I recommend for your 2022 Ford Escape Hybrid is the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e89YR because it has a matte black finish that does a great job at blending in with the trim on your vehicle plus it does a much better job at holding up to the elements than the classic glossy black finish does. If you don't already have a bike rack I recommend going with the Yakima StageTwo # Y47VR because it is one of Yakima's most recent additions to their bike rack selection...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2022 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid
    I recommend installing the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT42MR on your 2022 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid. This features a hidden crosstube for a clean looking installation and then it also has a mounting bracket for wiring in case you'd like to add wiring like the T-One # TK59VR and a bracket like # 18144. Then if you don't already have a bike rack I highly recommend checking out the Yakima StageTwo Bike Rack # Y47VR because it has a lot of easy-to-use features and is compatible...

  • What is the Best Way to Carry Bikes with a 2021 Tesla Model 3
    The absolute best way to carry bikes on any vehicle is with a hitch because you'll have access to more bike rack options, the bike racks will be easier to install, and you'll have an easier time loading up your bikes on a hitch rack as opposed to on your roof or on a trunk mount option. For your 2021 Tesla Model 3 I recommend installing the Stealth Hitches trailer hitch which comes as part # 391TES317 if you plan on only using it for a bike rack, or the part # 391TES317T which includes...

  • Comparing Curt and etrailer 2" Hitches for 2022 Honda CR-V
    Great question! As far as construction goes the Curt # C13397 and etrailer # e98848 hitches are going to be the same for your 2022 Honda CR-V. The real difference is that the Curt uses the classic glossy finish while the etrailer hitch has a matte black finish. I prefer the matte black finish because it blends in better with the trim on your vehicle, and it does a much better job at hiding any scratches or dings that might happen due to road debris than a gloss finish does.

    The best option for a trailer hitch receiver that fits your 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLB for a bike rack is from Stealth Hitches: - Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver # SH69MR The Stealth # SH69MR comes with a receiver that is rated for use with accessories only (not towing) so it is exactly what you need to utilize a bike rack.

    The difference is that the Curt Trailer Hitch # CU29FR has a glossy black finish while the etrailer Trailer Hitch # e56YR has a matte black finish. Aside from that these will be exactly the same for your 2022 Chevy Traverse.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for Bike Rack on 2022 Tesla Model 3
    We do have a trailer hitch fit for your 2022 Tesla Model 3 so you can get your bikes to your favorite path or trail. The Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver # 391TES317 is what you will need to use. I really like this hitch because the connection is tucked up under the vehicle so when you remove the receiver nobody can even tell that you have a hitch installed.
