Kuat Transfer 3 Bike Rack

Kuat Transfer 3 Bike Rack

At one time or another, we’ve all heard someone say, “it gets me from point A to point B…” when referring to the beater car they drive. As its name suggests, the Kuat Transfer Rack does transfer bikes from point A to point B exceptionally well, but it is by no means a beater of a bike rack!

Falling into the price point of many hanging style bike racks, the Kuat Transfer 3 Bike Rack offers the superiority of a tank-like hitch style rack with a robust steel construction. The unique arm arrangement makes absolutely no contact with the frame(s), while the PerfectFit adjustment system allows you to carry two bikes with up to 20”-29” tires. The front and rear cradle ratcheting straps that make loading and unloading quick, painless and secure.

Most of the time when we go to toss our bike on the rack, we have one hand holding up the bike, making it extremely hard to unfold the rack. The solution to this: the Transfer’s unique spring loaded foot pedal at the pivot. Simply press the pedal with your foot and unfold the rack with your free hand.

The Transfer 3 Rack’s handsome silver and black design will look good shadowing any vehicle with a 1.25” & 2” hitch receiver… even if it is a beater.

Kuat Transfer 3 Bike Rack Features:

  • Fits both 1.25” & 2” receivers
  • 1.25" 3-bike cannot be used on class 1 hitches
  • Fits 20-29” tires
  • Holds up to a 4.5” tire
  • Max Wheelbase: 47”
  • Max Weight per Bike: 40lbs
  • Weight: 3-Bike- 52 lbs

Kuat Transfer 3 Bike Rack Specifications:

  • No contact with bike frame
  • Spring loaded foot pedal at pivot
  • PerfectFit™ adjustment system ensures your bike will fit
  • Available security upgrades include locking hitch pin and integrated cable lock

Excellent for the price.
I have a 2" receiver and was surprised how solid it is with the adapter. The spacing between the bikes is a little tight for trail bikes with wide bars but the adjustments are pretty easy. No adapters needed for kids bikes. The only real downside was it took a while to put together but it was easy to do. You will also need to order a separate kit for the cable locks for the bikes and to lock the hitch pin. Still with the additional kits, this set cost almost half what other hitch racks that just attach to the wheels and works just as good.

Well build and practical
When expanded, the rack is very stable. It feels like it is part of the frame of the car. I had no problem mounting a 26" MTB, a 27.5" city bike and 20" kids bike. My original concern about the city bike was the fenders. How do you mount a bike with a front fender. I did call Kaut support and the guy was very nice to offer me a possible solution: put something sturdy under the fender so it does not bend. However it turns out that I do not need to do this. The bracket fit right just at front of the fender.

To date, I have found only one really minor issue: When in a vertical position (that is, no bikes installed) the locking bar in the hinge does not fit completely in the slot. That is not a problem per say, but as a result the rack shakes a bit. That does not really matter since there are not bikes on it. In a horizontal position, the same bar fits tightly in the slot and no shaking occurs.

Overall good...but with a few assembly issues
Overall a good rack...at a good price. The assembly instructions are clear, but be careful...it is tempting to over-tighten some of the bolts which will then lead to broken or damaged parts.

The tendency when you're assembling something to hold $10k worth of bikes is to tighten every bolt so that it will NEVER come out. But if you do this, you will very easily and quickly cause irreversible damage to some parts. The instructions fail to give any warning about not over-tightening bolts.

So...here are the rest of the instructions that Kuat should have included, but didn't...
1 - When you install the hook arms onto the round pucks, they attach with a single tensioner plate and bolt. Tighten this bolt just enough to keep the tensioner plate from spinning around...and not any tighter. If you over-tighten this bolt, it will cause the hook arm to have too much tension on it, which then causes the bolt to bend every time you move the hook arm when you load/unload a bike. After just a week of usage, all 3 of my bolts had bent because of this.
2 - When you install the rear tire cradle, once again...do not over tighten the bolt. If you over tighten it, it will crack the thin plastic sleeve that it is supposed to sit on top of. It is *really* tempting to want to over tighten this bolt. Don't do it.

So...you've now been warned. Aside from these assembly gotchas, the rack itself is EXCELLENT! And Kuat customer support has been FABULUOS at sending me replacement parts when I broke or over-tightened something. No questions asked...they just sent me the parts that I needed ASAP. Kudos to Kuat for great support!
