How Sturdy Is the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2-Bike Platform Rack

Question:

We have to 50 lb e bikes. AT this time neither bike has fenders. upgrading is always possible. It is very hard for my wife to load when Im not around - when shes riding with other ladies etc. We are upgrading from a Saris Super Clamp - which was very easy to use but had a 1 1/4? stinger the bikes wobbled left and right and back and forth way more then I was comfortable. We have looked at the Thule EZ fold video and the Kuat 2.0 NV base video dont need the repair stand. The EZ fold is very fussy to load, keep tires on the track and secure - and a friend has one, and its not very stable it wobbles. The EZ Fold is also on a 1 1/4inch stinger. Im wondering since I have never seen the Kuat if it wobbles back and forth and left and right as much. It does look easier to load. Thanks for this great service. I have bought 3 hitches from you and appreciate the way questions get answered and posted.

The Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2-Bike Platform Rack part # BA22B or part # BA12B is one of the best bike rack options on the market. It has a 60 lb per bike weight capacity so most e-bikes will not be a problem and you can add a ramp, the Access Ramp for Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack part # ANVBRB for easy loading. In regards to stability, all bikes rack are going to have movement but since the Kuat NV 2.0 uses a solid one-piece shank, there will be far less play and the bike rack will be much sturdier.

I have attached a test course video below that will give you a better idea of the movement you can expect.
