Excellent rack - rock solid, holds bike without wobbling. Fits 2021 Toyota Rav4 XLE with Toyota Hitch perfectly. Easy to tilt up and down (but it takes 2 hands to do so, which is a little annoying). At the risk of stating the obvious, it is a little annoying to leave it on all the time - I don't like leaving it horizontal for fear that a car will clip it when driving, so I keep it in the raised position.. But this means that I have to lower it every time I want to access my hatch. Lock works well also. The kids bike adapter seems to work fine (only tried once).

One downer - some of the fasteners are already rusting a little (see pic), and I've only had it on my car for 3 months (May to August in PA).

This product should not be left on the hitch all of the time. Leaving it on will cause excessive rust. Please view page 17 of the manufacturers User Guide under tips and tricks to see how to get the most life out of your bike rack: https:www.kuat.comwp-contentuploadsnv-2-user_guide.pdf


Delivered quickly. Product is as advertised. Best pricing I found anywhere. The rack took ~1 hr to assemble - a bit challenging to figure out but got easier as it progressed. It takes <5 mins to attach this to the base unit rack while mounted on car. This speed of install will make it easier to change between 2 and 4 bike arrangements as needed. Note: the integrated locks have a different key than base unit - will now need to keep a pair of keys handy. Not a huge fan of the integrated locking gizmos - they work but are awkward to engage, these could be designed better for easier use it seems.



Not great, but okay. The locking mechanisms for the cable locks are garbage - they slip out of the ‘holsters’ and drag on the ground and 2 are hence ruined. The overall ability to convert from 2 to 4 bikes with ease is nice, but the locks get zero stars. For as expensive as this rack is, these should be better designed.


First off Etrailer Corp. did a fantastic job with my order. Not only did I get a very good deal. Etrailer Corp went beyond that and quick shipped my order. Carrier assembly was four bolts to install and tightened and the carrier was ready to use. This is the best carrier for anyone that wants a safe way to carry their extra bikes. This easily attaches to my Kuat base carrier to carry additional two bikes. And it is easily comes back off with the removal of two bolts and lock. No more frame scratches and the quickest way to mount or dismount in seconds. You can load and unload in under a minute! Would recommend to anyone.


This bicycle carrier is fantastic! It takes seconds to secure the bicycle to the vehicle and it is very secure. The addition allows 4 bikes and does protrude from the back of the vechicle a bit, but overall a very secure and an easy carrier. Although a bit more expensive than others, this trailer will probably last the for years to come. Etrailer was less expensive than others with free shipping and delivery was very prompt. Will use them again.


Kuat makes the best bike racks and their customer service is top notch. Full stop.

Oh, also, comes through with great prices!


The rack is well made and as sturdy as you would expect from a great company like Kuat. I discovered that I actually have the standard rack instead of the Base, however, other than the finish (this extension is matte black, the standard is gloss), it bolts together perfectly and works fine. Amazing customer service from etrailer as always!


I love the rack! Working with E-Trailer was seamless. The best part was despite the delay in shipping from Kuat due to Covid they kept my order in active status so that when it was available I didn't have to do anything. Thank you!


allows my to carry bikes for the full crew.
you place the order. Tell them your key number so it matches.

Super solid build. A little tricky to assemble with the bolts since it's so heavy, but with two people it's a 30 minute job.

  • Is Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2-Bike Add-On Difficult to Install
    Adding or removing the 2-Bike Add-On # BA02B for the Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack # BA22B really isn't too difficult - it's almost like installing it into anther hitch to be honest. Attached is a review video where we go over a few things for the add-on section as well as what it looks like to install the part (jump to minute mark 2:40). Basically you'll remove the end cap on the Base, insert the Add-On, tighten up the Allen bolts, and then place the cap on the end of the Add-On.

  • Carrying An E-Bike On A 1 1/4" Hitch Receiver
    Yes, there is an adapter that would change a 1 1/4" hitch receiver to a 2" hitch receiver. But will be some limitations. Any adapter you add will reduce the maximum tongue weight of your hitch receiver by 50%. Many 1 1/4" hitch receivers only have a 200lb maximum tongue weight. If that is your situation the maximum tongue weight would only be 100lbs. That means your Kuat NV 2 and the e-bike you want to carry cannot weigh more than 100lbs total. In this instance you might be able to carry...

  • What is the Maximum Wheelbase for the Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack?
    50". I checked with Kuat and the NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack for 4 Bikes item # BA22B-BA02B works with bikes having up to a 50" wheelbase.

  • 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.

  • Will the Backup Camera on a 2011 Honda Pilot be Blocked with a Kuat 2.0 Bike Rack?
    From my research on the 2011 Honda Pilot, the backup camera is located above the center of the rear license plate below the Honda emblem. I called my contact at Kuat, and he told me that the measurement of the hitch pin hole to the tallest part with only two trays on the rack (when folded) on the Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack # BA22B-BA02B is 24-3/4 inches. While I cannot confirm with certainty if the folded NV 2.0 would block your camera, I recommend measuring the pinhole to the camera location...

  • Expanding a Kuat NV 2.0 Base Trailer Hitch Receiver Bike Rack
    The Kuat Base NV 2.0, part # BA22B actually has its own add on kit as part # BA02B. According to Kuat, the parts are not compatible between the NV 2.0 and the Base NV 2.0. I've included a video review of the Base rack so you can see how it works.

  • 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. As for your bikes fitting so long as they are between 25" and 29" they will be fine.

  • Will The Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack Fit My 2012 Honda CRV With 2" Receiver?
    Yes, the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2 Bike Carrier # BA22B will fit the 2" receiver on your 2012 Honda CR-V without any issue. Also, if you wanted to add 2 bikes down the road you can get the 2-Bike Add-On for Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack for 2" Hitches - Aluminum - Matte Black # BA02B. I attached demonstration videos for you.

  • Clearance Dimensions for Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2-Bike Platform Rack BA22B
    On the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2-Bike Platform Rack # BA22B the horizontal distance from the hitch pin hole to the center of the nearest bike rail is approximately 14-3/8-inches. The height of the unloaded rack when folded down is 11-7/8-inches relative to the center of the hitch pin hole. Please refer to the linked Kuat diagram which shows these dimensions.

  • What Is the Per-Bike Rating of the Kuat NV 2.0 For A Class I or II Hitch?
    Hopefully I can clear some confusion up for you. So what I think is happening is you're looking at two-different things for the same rack. The Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2-Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" Hitches # BA12B you're looking at has a capacity of 60-lbs per bike and will work with both class I & II 1-1/4" hitches. There is also a 4-bike version # BA22B-BA02B that is only going to work with 2" hitches and has a 60-lbs per bike capacity when used as a two-bike carrier, or a 40-lbs per bike capacity...

  • Recommended Bike Rack For Expanding From 2 Bike To 4 Bikes
    I do have a recommendation for you as the Saris SuperClamp EX Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # SA4025F is not expandable for 3 or 4 bikes. We have the Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack # BA22B that is rated to carry 2 bikes up to 60lbs each. You can add the 2-Bike Add-On # BA02B to increase capacity to 4 bikes. When you move to the 4 bike rack capacity is limited to 40lbs per bike. We also have it listed as the 4 Bike Rack # BA22B-BA02B so you can see what it looks like together and only have to order 1 item.

  • Trailer Hitch For A 2019 Mercedes Sprinter 2500 with Factory Step Bumper
    For your Sprinter 2500, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13358 that will do a great job for your bike carrier and more should you decide to tow later. 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 there...

  • Vertical Load Limit On A 2020 Tesla Model X
    It seems that you're talking about tongue weight as it is the downward force or the "vertical load" on the hitch. 120lbs is way to light to be the gross trailer weight rating. That being said, the Draw-Tite # 76143 2 inch hitch will fit your 2020 Tesla Model X. It has a gross trailer weight of 5,000 lbs. This is how heavy your trailer can be to tow. It has a maximum tongue weight of 750 lbs (Downward vertical force on hitch). This hitch is a lot stronger and can handle heavier accessories...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Bike Rack to Carry Up to 4 Bikes on a Lexus NX200t
    Verify the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch recevier and your Lexus NX200t to make sure you can handle the weight of a fully loaded bike rack. You definitely need a 2 inch Class III hitch on the Lexus which are available so hopefully you already have one. For a rack I recommend the Kuat NV 2.0 Base, part # BA22B-BA02B. It's a platform rack that can carry up to 4 bikes that weigh 40 pounds each. If you're only carrying 2 bikes they can weigh up to 60 pounds each. It uses...

  • What Wheel Size Requires an Adapter with the Kuat NV Base Bike Rack
    With the Kuat NV Base 4-Bike Rack part # BA22B-BA02B you have to use the adapter # 016-025-00-00 if the bike wheel is between 20 and 24 inches. Unfortunately this part has been discontinued, and there is not a replacement option.

  • Replacement Lock Cylinders and Keys For Kuat Bike Racks To Have One Key System With 2-Bike Add-On
    To have all your locks keyed alike on the 2-Bike Add-On # BA02B and your Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack # BA22B you will need the Replacement Lock Cores for Kuat Cargo Carriers and Bike Racks # LOCO6. The replacements come with 6 lock cores and 2 keys for the new cores. Also included is the core removal key and pin tool for removing the cores.

  • Platform 4-Bike Rack that Can be Used as a 2 Bike Rack If Needed
    Unlike the Kuat NV 4 bike rack # BA22B-BA02B the Inno bike rack # INH142 does not have ability to be used as either a 2 bike or 4 bike configuration. If this feature is important to you the best option would be the NV. 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. I attached a review video link to this page for more info as well.

  • Is Kuat NV 2.0 BA22B-BA02B or Inno INH142 Tire Hold Better for 20 Inch Bikes
    The Inno Tire Hold # INH142 4-bike rack will accommodate children't bikes with 20 inch wheels or adult bikes with up to 29 inch wheels. 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 does not have an adapter for kid's bikes. One huge feature offered by the NV 2.0 is the add-on feature. The rearmost 2-bike portion of the rack is removable, which is handy for when only two bikes need to be carried, and the fact that the rack...

  • Can I Use the Hollywood Racks Rack Valet # HRRV-1 with Kuat NV 2.0 with 2-Bike Add-On?
    Yes! Since the Kuat NV 2.0 with 2-Bike Add-On like the # BA22B-BA02B only weighs 82 pounds, you are good to go! This is because the Hollywood Racks Rack Valet Rolling Storage Cart # HRRV-1 has a maximum weight capacity of 100 pounds.

  • 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). If you still want this route, I recommend going with the Kuat NV 2.0 # BA22B-BA02B...

    When your Kuat NV 2.0 with add-on part # BA22B-BA02B is installed in the Kuat RackDock Bike Mount # KU54FR the overall width would be 55-1/8 inches and the overall length would be 55-1/2 inches when folded down or 18 inches if folded up.
