Kuat NV 2 Bike Tray Hitch Rack

Kuat NV Hitch Rack

Carry heavy DH and freeride bikes; or lightweight road bikes without touching the frame. Kuats platform rack grabs the wheels only for fast, safe carrying. When you get to the trailhead you can be rolling in 30 seconds, especially good for bikes with thru-axle front wheels that make removing the front wheel time consuming.

Kuat does the competition in this category one better with features like an integrated repair clamp for pre-race tuneups, and an integrated cable lock for additional security.

  • Carries 2 bikes (Up to 60 lbs. each)
  • Total carrying capacity of up to 120 lbs.
  • Folds up quickly for storage
  • Tilts down for easy vehicle access
  • Integrated cable lock system AND hitch lock for maximum security (locking hitch pin included)
  • Includes built-in TRAIL DOC™ repair stand for quick fixes on-the-go
  • Front and rear tire ratchets make loading and unloading a breeze
  • Hand-tight cam system - no need for additional tools!
  • Increase bike capacity to up to FOUR bikes with available NV-Add On (sold separately, 2" model only)
  • The NV is the best option for downhill, free-ride, and other large bikes

Specifications

  • No Worries Warranty
  • Weighs 49 lbs. assembled
  • Accommodates up to a 48" wheelbase
  • Fits 20" - 29" wheels

Solid hitch bike rack
This hitch rack is SOLID. By that I mean it is constructed VERY well. No loose joints or parts. Bikes sit securely.

The way that Kuat has engineered the hitch receiver, to take up the slack in side, to prevent any rocking is great. The rack sits with no movement when driving or going over rough road.

Loading the bikes is easy and quick. They go on and sit securely with out any movement. I have used mountain, road, and fat bikes on it. No issues.

A couple cons though. If you are using the NV with the Add on (2 additional trays) Like I am. Then to use the tilt feature that allows it to move out of the way for rear hatches to open, is pointless. It is VERY hard to hold the trays with bikes on it, and release the leaver, with out it falling and hitting the ground hard. Then to lift the whole kit with bikes ... is HEAVY.

The other con ... is due to it being very solid and constructed well. It does come with a weight penalty. It is about 60lbs. When you add the additional trays ... it tops out close to 80lbs. So it is a bit cumbersome to load and store.

But even with those minor cons ... I would not go back to the other products I have used previously.
this is the one.

Solid rack, just a few issues
I use the NV almost daily between Mid-April and November. This rack works well, easy to use and looks great. However there are 2 issues that I have with this rack. First is the weight. It is very heavy making it difficult to install or uninstall. This also makes it hard to fold up or down with the 2 bike add on installed. The second issue is also related to weight and a slight design flaw. The pivot bracket that allows the rack to tilt up and down wears out quickly with routine use. The rack will start to wiggle as the mechanism wears and loosens. Eventually it will be easy to have the rack drop to the lowered position unexpectedly. I have many friends using the NV and we use them where i work and the same thing has happened to them. The replacement part is $150. Because of this I take the rack on and off all the time to cut down on the wear and tear. I still like the rack and I think its better than others out there. Hopefully they can improve the pivot mechanism.

PROS: Well built, Well Built Mostly, Easy to use

CONS: Heavy, Has One Key Wear Point

BEST USES: Road Biking, Commuting/City, Mountain Biking

Best hitch rack!
Holds the bike well and quick to load/unload. Love the built in stand and hitch stabilizer. The built in lock is convient, but I wouldn't trust it for more than a few minutes, I use a chain lock. Also, if you have a jeep or suv with a rear mount tire you will need a hitch extension.

PROS: Durable, Versatile

The best you can get
This rack is great for destination bike rides. It securely holds my 26" and 29" mountain bikes with no issues. Also, the added bike stand feature is awesome for camping and quick repairs at the trailhead. The rack also comes with a built in bike lock, and lock for the hitch.

Solid Prouct
Quality Product. Bikes don't touch each other when sitting on rack. Bikes stay secure and the rack doesn't rattle or sway. Use this for short and long trips and no worries about the bikes coming off or getting damaged.

This rack has all the features you would want in a rack.(even comes with a bottle opener!)

Super Rack
This is a very high quality and well designed rack. It is very easy to load and remove two bikes. I was able to lock both bikes with the built in cable but it is a little short.
