Rotating Arms with Ratcheting Wheel Hooks

Kuat NV 2.0 wheel hooks

The NV 2.0 Base 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.

Large Front Wheel Cradles

Kuat NV 2.0 front wheel cradles

The front wheel cradles will easily accommodate fat bike wheels. They can also be adjusted to perfectly fit each bike's wheelbase. Use the included Allen key stored in the compartment at the back of the rack to adjust

Sliding Ratcheting Straps

Kuat NV 2.0 ratcheting straps

Ratcheting rear-wheel straps slide along the wheel trays to accommodate bikes with a variety of wheelbases. Press the quick-release button on the strap buckle to remove your bikes. An extender strap is included for use with 1 fat bike. Additional extender straps (sold separately) are available if you have more than 1 fat bike.

Foot Lever for Easy Tilting and Folding

Kuat NV 2.0 foot lever

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 NV 2.0 tilting rackKuat NV 2.0 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.

Optional Repair Stand

Kuat NV 2.0 Trail Doc

This rack gives you the option of adding the Trail Doc (TDKB - sold separately). It's a handy repair stand that attaches to the front of the rack. It lets you position your bike as needed for adjustments, cleaning, and on-the-go repairs. It can be also 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.

I've taken this rack all over New England on the front of my Dodge Ram 3500 pick up truck with a truck camper. I had no idea it was possible to love a bike rack so much. After one drive I didn't ever worry about it again. So nice that it locks up when I am camping or taking a quick stop for food on the road. So glad I bought it from etrailer. They totally help me pick the perfect rack for my challenging set up.



This rack has traveled from MD, through TX, NM, AZ, UT, CO and back and it has held up so well. We did a ton of research and could not be happier with this rack or this company!


Still very new, but what an awesome bike rack! Assembly was a snap and the rack is rock-solid when you secure it to the hitch receiver. etrailer was amazing too - excellent communication, price and fast, free delivery. Overall I am extremely happy with the rack and service!

Chuck S.


A year in and the rack continues to work great. Still rock solid while driving and has held up very well.


excellent product; typical Kuat quality. bikes are sturdily held in place while driving.
locks for hitch pin and built-in locks for hitch pin for bikes well done.
I want to compliment the advice I received from etrailer representative Jon Griggs who provided great feedback every step of the way which was key in purchasing my hitch and bike rack.

Michael S.


Great! We bought this heavy duty rack in expectation that we were getting two e-bikes. We are still waiting on that. One thing to remember is the rack is heavy: over 50 lbs if I remember it correctly. It can take 2 min and a boy to install and remove, but darn sturdy. :-


Hello Roger! I really enjoy the bike rack. I will give a review after I have had some time to try it on some trips!

James S.


I absolutely love the bike rack! It stays rock solid stable when secured to the rack and does not move. Kuat could not have built a much better bike rack! Securing the bike is SUPER easy. I am so glad that we purchased two of them.


I have used this new bike rack twice (120 miles each trip) and could not be happier. This rack is extremely solid and so easy to use that I can have the rack installed and bikes both mounted in under 10 minutes.

When I was looking at racks, I had two questions about this rack that were hard to find answers to. I'm going to answer those questions to hopefully help others that are looking:

1. Does this rack work with bikes that have fenders? - I have two Velotric Discovery 1 e-bikes which have front fenders that stick out from the fork about 6-7". I put the arm just in front of the tires so that it is 6-7" in front of the fork. The rack is still extremely solid and the bikes don't move at all, even with the support arm further forward on the tire. Other people have put the support bar over their fender. I can't do that as it would break the fender just based on my bike's design. Couldn't be happier!

2. Can you open the tailgate of a Ford F150 when you tilt it down? - First of all, I did NOT buy the "extender" that would push the rack out further. If I did, I think I could open my tailgate up completely. Without the extension, I can open up my truck's tailgate about 2/3 of the way with the rack tilted. That is actually fine for me, because it allows me to unlock my truck bed Hard top cover so that I can access the bed. If you have a fullsize pickup, and want to open up your tailgate fully, you will most likely need to buy the extension.

Beyond those two questions, what I like most about this rack is that there is no center support bar that you have to work around. I can pick up the first bike and lift it right onto the rack with nothing impeding me. I secure it with the rear strap and front bar and it is good to go. I then put the 2nd bike on again with no impediments.

The unit tightens into the hitch sleeve and is rock solid. Super easy to install and tighten... taking me only a couple minutes.

Couldn't be happier with this purchase!!!!


I purchased this rack to carry two e-bikes, which the ads say it would be sufficient for two 60 lb bikes. I always removed the bike batteries to lesson the weight and keep them below 50 lbs. After about a month of travel the bike rack began to fall apart. The bolts holding it together bent and broke and fortunately I was close to home when it happened. I beefed the entire rack up with heavier bolts and also bolted some aluminum square tubing across the middle section and to the cross sections so that it would stand up to the weight of the ebikes. I am now on an extended trip to AZ and NM and so far so good. Also, one of the tire hold down thingys has loosened up due to the weight of an ebike. I would NOT recommend this rack for ebikes, Kuat makes some that are solid across the middle section that would work much better. Personally, I would never buy another Kuat due to the many problems we have had with it.

I am sorry to hear that your bike rack has started to fall apart. I was wondering if you are using this rack on the back of a motorhome, travel trailer or fifth wheel? The Kuat NV is not designed to be used on a motorhome, travel trailer or fifth wheel because of the excessive movement while going down the road. Travel trailers also have a tendency to sway on the highway which can be rough on certain bike racks that are not tested for use on the back of a trailer. I was also curious which e-bikes you are carrying on the rack?

Etrailer Expert

Heather A.


Hello Heather, thank you for your response. I have been using the rack on the back of my pick up truck with an overhead camper. I don’t recall reading anywhere not to use it on an RV. Anyway we have a Himiway bike as well as a mini fold up rad. We remove the batteries when we carry them in order to reduce the weight. I also bought straps that attached to the back of the camper to help support the rack and minimize the movement. I think the problem with this particular rack is the fact that it is bolted together on the crossmembers rather than being a solid bar across which I have seen on other racks. I spent several hours making some adjustments to it and I think it’s OK now however I think it would be important not to advertise that rack as sufficient for 60 pound bikes. It definitely is not that. Once again thank you for your response.

Etrailer Expert

Heather A.


We have not had any complaints about the durability of the construction of the Kuat NV so I am surprised to hear that you needed to brace the rack. It sounds like you are using your Kuat NV in the hitch of your truck. Are you using a hitch extender so the bike rack will clear the back of the overhead camper? Most extensions cut the tongue weight of the hitch in half so the e-bikes may be overloading your setup at that point. It sounds like your e-bikes may be around 70 lbs. The bike rack capacity is 60 lbs per bike so you may want to keep that in mind. You also want to keep in mind that using an extender creates more leverage on the setup and leads to more bouncing of the bike rack especially on the highway.



I havent used it for a year now, but after making my improvements I feel confident that it will hold up just fine.



I would like to ad that I did have an extension on the receiver to clear the back of the camper, however with the support straps attached to the upper part of the camper it should not have affected it. Heather wrote that I must have had 70 lbs per bike. NOt true. We always removed the batteries and the bikes are in the 50 lb range without them. having two little 516? bolts holding the wheel support to the center of the rack seems under strengthened IMO. I ended up putting aluminum tubes underneath the wheel supports and bolting it all together with heavier SS bolts. I will admit, however, that we do not just stay on paved roads and do sometimes wander onto back roads that are not always the smoothest, however with a big camper on top, we go slow and carefully on those roads.


I love the Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack I purchased a year ago! It is easy to use and extremely sturdy - the 2 bikes remain secure and movement free! The tipping feature is great when I need to get into the back of my SUV while my bikes are loaded. I recommend the Kuat NV 2.0 to everyone looking for a new or replacement rack!



Awesome, I love it and have recommended it to many people! It is easy to use and I feel confident that my bikes are secure and well protected.


Great so far. It's a little heavy, but understand it's necessary to carry heavy bikes. I like the design for stowing the cables for the locking mechanism. The anti-rattle device is much appreciated.


This rack did exactly what I needed it to do. I upgraded from a Yakima folding rack in order to hold new e-bikes. I also needed something that could be installed and removed easily.

"Relatively" light weight - goes on and off easily
Holds the weight of e-bikes
The bikes feel save and secure once latched in and locked with the cable

After a while the cable wouldn't stay seated when not in use. Often if I had the rack on without the bikes, one of the cables would be loose and hanging from the unit. Since I didn't do that often, I didn't take away a star

The only reason I don't use this rack anymore, is because I needed one that hold 3 bikes!

Highly recommend.


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

Please keep in mind that hauling bikes on the front of your truck can reduce driver visibility, air flow to the motor, and block your front lights, so you will want to use caution.


Love it. Replaced an older Yakima rack that was fine but didn't work with the frame od my new bike. This is a 50+ lb rack but because of the way its designed its fairly easy to get it into the hitch receiver. Once in, it locks in ver solidly by twisting a know that sort of jams a good sized steel ball up against the inside of the hitch receiver. There's no wobble even if I stand on the rack. Bike is pretty easy to put up on the rack. Arm clamps down on bike's front tire. I wish it used something better than the plastic ratchet trap to secure the rear wheel....that's the one part of the rack that doesn't have the same user friendliness as the rest of the rack. Is recommend this rack. And it arrived right away from etrailer. Good communication and no drama


I recently bought the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2 Bike Platform Rack from ETrailer.
It is a well-made and well designed platform bike rack. It was easy to assemble. Although the instruction manual needs a little bit of tweaking to
make clear where the other nut is. It took a while to find it and I ended up buying a similar nut at a hardware store. Other than that this is a great bike
rack. Easy to assemble and install. I like the built-in security chain lock too. It
is actually long enough to secure the two bikes together. The platform has a grooved area for the bike’s front tire for added stability. It also lighter than the Thule bike rack I was initially considering. We traveled from the Bay Area in California to South Lake Tahoe for the Americas Most Beatiful Bike Ride, the bike was very stable. My wife loves the looks and the ease of tilting the bike rack to open the tailgate area.
The etrailer customer service person, Stacey A, was awesome. The shipping notification and tracking was great too.
I have no qualms recommending this bike rack to my family and friends.
Thanks for all your help, Stacey A.


Buy with confidence if you are here shopping for new bike racks you can already appreciate the vast amount of information provide to consumers to make an informed decision speak for an end user I love the Kuat NV 2.0 rack it assembled very easily 5 bolts to install and hex key is provided no additional tools are need the rack is very solid and sturdy the tilt feature is very smooth and works effortlessly as demonstrated on the websites video and as you can see for yourselves they are priced competitively what else can I say that etrailer hasn’t already covered other than the all black mat colored model finish on the rack isn’t the same as the grey and black with the orange rails it’s more rough texture finish not smoooth automotive like finish on the other two models don’t get me wrong this isn’t a con by any means this is exactly what I was looking for but I do have to say the smooth high quality finish of the other two models is very easy to clean just use a soft microfiber cloth to wipe down dust.


Great ebike rack at a great price!



Excellent. Glad I bought it here.

@Richard Thanks for your business! We appreciate it, and we're glad you're happy with your purchase!


I purchased the Kuat to replace a very similar Thule rack.(shown in photo).
I was pairing it with the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk on the front of our trailer.
The Kuat was 7" closer to the trailer giving me the clearance I needed for the truck and the Kayaks on the truck rack. We traveled 6500 miles for 9 weeks and everything worked great. The Kuat works great on the back of our Jeep Rubicon as well.


Very well built and very easy to use bike rack. I used mine quite a bit within the last year and everything works just as well as the first day. I will say however this bike rack is on the heavy side. I exercise and work out regularly and this thing can be quite heavy for some people. It has to be close to 100 lb. I take mine off when I am not using it however some people may wish to leave it on just because of the weight. Very nice features would definitely recommend and it comes with adapters for different size wheels.



Still looks and works brand new. Again I take mine off after every ride and hang it on the wall. Definitely recommend.


High quality materials. Simple enough to assemble. All the tools you needs are included in the kit, and they are actually properly sized for the job at hand. Instructions are maybe an 8 out 7 - better than most but could do with a little more illustrations. Three suggestions, if I may. 1) When the early step says to turn the unit upside down, the front tire cradle keeps it from laying flat on the ground. This makes it difficult to install the long connecting bolts. You should suggest that the assembly be put up on blocks or to hang the cradle off the end of something (see my picture with the end hanging off of a deck walkway). This makes the whole thing lay flat to ease alignment if the connecting bolts. 2) For that same step, a trimetric view would me more helpful than the plan view. 3) when tightening the long bolts, care must be taken so that the Allen wrench doesn’t chip up the rack paint. I fixed this by wrapping the wrench with some painters tape (see pic). You might want to add this tip as it was obvious to me that Kuat tries to make a great set of instructions.

The rack itself operates beautifully. I expect years of solid service from this unit. Ps. The ramp accessory works great too.


I've used a lot of different bike racks over the years, but this is by far the best. It is very solidly built, holds bikes of all sizes securely, and looks good too.



After a year, Im still very happy with this Kuat rack. It is well built and solid and holds our bikes securely. The integrated locks are really handy too. I only wish now that I had gone for the model with the attached bike stand. They would be handy.


This bike rack is a beast! Took about 30 minutes to assemble, directions were straightforward and the materials are of the highest quality. Easily holds our Townie Electra (w/GeoOrbital electric wheels). The additional ramp (purchased with this order) makes loading the 48 pound bikes a breeze to load!


This is a solid bike rack which locks in to the hitch receiver preventing shaking and vibration. Very easy to install and remove. The rack holds two bikes and they are also easily installed and removed. The built in locking cables are a bonus. Great product!


This bike rack has performed great. We are hauling 2 heavy fat tire e-bikes. Loading and unloading is a snap. I had to purchase a 2” drop extender to be able to lower my tailgate. Tilting the bike rack allows for easy access to my truck bed. Great product!


Easy to build, very sturdy! I haven't used it much yet, but so far so good! I had a Thule single bike rack before and I like this much better, even for just one bike.


Have had this rack for a year and completely satisfied. Carried two e-bikes from St.Louis to Florida and back without any issues or rattles. Love the ratcheting hitch and built-in bike locks. Our bikes have front fenders so I was worried I might have to remove them for the clamps to work but that wasn't the case. The fenders are flexible enough to be pushed down firmly with the clamps and pop back up when the clamps are removed.


High quality, solid worth the money. Easy assembly

  • Can Tailgate of 2016 Chevy Colorado Open When Using Kuat NV Bike Rack?
    The answer is going to depend on how much room you have between the top of your 2015-2017 Chevy Colorado's trailer hitch and its tailgate. The Kuat NV # BA22B will be roughly 8 inches above the hitch receiver opening when the arms are folded down, so you would need to have more than that amount of space between the top of your hitch and when the tailgate is folded down. I've added links to video reviews of this bike rack for you to take a look at.

  • Can I Use The Kuat NV 2.0 With My Trek Verve+3 E-Bikes?
    Yes, you certainly can use the Kuat NV 2.0 to transport your Trek Verve+3 e-bikes. After looking thru a few pictures of these bikes, it is clear that the front fenders are short enough to where you will be able to securely attach the hook to the front tire. You will want to attach as close to the fender as you can without risking making contact. This way the hook will stay positioned on the "inside" of the axle. I see that you were looking at the Matte Black version of the Kuat NV 2.0...

  • Can the Kuat NV 2.0 Be Used for Two E-Bikes
    Yes, the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2-Bike Platform Rack part # BA22B has a 60 lb per bike weight capacity so it would easily support your two 53 lb e-bikes. If the battery weighed under 7 lbs then you could leave that installed as well. The Kuat NV 2.0 is one of the most secure and stable bike racks on the market so I don't think you will have any issues with your e-bikes. The weight capacity of these bikes racks are often conservative figures anyhow so I wouldn't be worried even if you are right...

  • Would Kuat NV Base 2.0 part # BA22B Clear Rear Spare of 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser
    The Kuat NV Base 2.0 part # BA22B would have plenty of clearance to fit past the spare of your 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser. It has a distance of 11-3/4 inches from it's hitch pin hole to the nearest portion of the rack when folded down. Normally that is enough clearance for every vehicle with the exception of Jeep Wranglers that have large spares on the rear of them but you can measure from the pin hole on your hitch out to the furthest point out on the spare and if you get less than 11-3/4...

    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.

  • Can Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack Tilt With Bikes Loaded
    You can have your bikes loaded up and still tilt the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2-Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" Hitches # BA12B. I couldn't find where it said in the specs it could not be in the tilted position so I checked with Kuat and as you can see in the cut out of the instructions I provided, they have a photo of the rack tilted with a bike on it. This is just one but you can indeed have two bikes loaded on the # BA12B and tilt it. Even with ebikes you can still do it; so long as you aren't...

  • How to Make Kuat NV 2-Bike Rack for 2 Inch Hitches a 4-Bike Rack
    You can easily turn your Kuat NV 2.0 2-bike rack into a 4-bike rack a few times a year when you go camping; all you need to do is get the 2-bike add-on and it is very easily installed or removed. If you take a look at the video I linked and go to about the 1:30 mark you can see the add-on being installed. To make your Kuat NV 2.0 a 4-bike rack you simply need to match it with the appropriate add-on. I will list the 2-bike racks and the appropriate add-on for it: - Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2-Bike...

    The Kuat NV 2.0 part # BA22B is basically the stripped down version of the # NV22B. The differences are that the BA22B has a matte black finish whereas the other rack has a metallic black finish and a stand to work on bikes in the event you needed to while out on the trail.

  • 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.

  • 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.
