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.
  • Sturdy, heat-treated aluminum construction
  • Carries two bikes
  • Fits 2" receiver boxes

              My rack fell apart in the car wash and when I tried posting the picture to their facebook page they banned me. I called jay at Kuat and he told me that this is not a warranty or manufacturer issue. Thule is rock solid and my warranty issue with yakima was handled really well. Go with one of these companies

              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.

              Comments about Kuat NV 2 Bike Tray Hitch 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.

              Comments about Kuat NV 2 Bike Tray Hitch Rack:

              First off Jenson USA is awesome. Great price, great shipping fee and great time on delivery.

              I've had my NV (2") for a little over a week now and I'm very impressed. The hardware is not only attractive but is very solid. Had two MT bikes on both with 780mm handlebars without any issues. The clearance between the handlebars and my rear window is over 6". My car is a 2012 Dodge Durango and the rear glass slopes in towards the cab at the top.
              With the hitch locking cam cranked down there is just a slight amount of play, which is a good thing. (Building things without a bit of flex and too rigidly is a structural faux pas)

              Bikes go on and come off quickly. There isn't much play in the security cable which helps in not damaging the frame. Please note that the cable will only go through the rear triangles. I typically carry an extra cable to lock down my seat & wheels if i need the extra protection.

              Assembly was easy enough. I did it on my own, would have been easier having an extra pair of hands. I foolishly took off the strategically placed plastic wrap prior to assembly. I then realized it was there to help protect the finish when using the allen wrench so i recommend keeping it on until assembly is complete.
              Overall this is an excellent rack and I definitely recommend it.

                Comments about Kuat NV 2 Bike Tray Hitch Rack:

                This thing is worth the money! It's well built and secure. I love the ball joint that expands in the hitch to remove the play/slop from the rack. I keep this on my truck 95% of the time. When I only have time for a quick ride, I can throw my bike on in less than a minute. Also, there is not much (if any) effect on MPG with this attached. Not that I'm concerned about that, but some are.
                Dont spend a bunch of $$$ on a nice bike then haul it around with a rack that scuffs up the frame. You absolutely will not regret spending a little extra for this rack!

                    Comments about Kuat NV 2 Bike Tray Hitch Rack:

                    This is a great bike carrier. If i was in a hurry, i could easily load and secure a bike in under 20 seconds, but even at a slow pace, it takes less than 40-60 seconds to load and secure.

                    The cable lock is essentially worthless because it is way to short. I have a 29 inch TREK full suspension and my 8 year old has a 24 inch TREK and i can not get both bikes locked down with cable through the frames. I can get bikes locked via just the wheels, but that is not much of a lock.

                      This is a great product. I really enjoy how easy it is to use and how secure it is. The bike stand is an awesome feature that I have already made use of.

                      I am still having problems figuring out how to lock two bikes with the integrated lock - have to check the instructions again.

                      Comments about Kuat NV 2 Bike Tray Hitch Rack:

                      I have this rack mounted on the back of my 2011 Mustang. It attaches to a hidden style hitch I ordered separately online. First of all when the rack is on, it looks great. The finish looks awesome in person. When I take it off my car looks completely stock. One thing to note is that getting the rack in and out of the actual hitch is a little difficult. An extra set of hands really helps.
                      That is the only difficulty I've had with this rack everything else is perfect! Loading the bikes on only takes seconds. Once on they are completely secure. The anti-rattle device works great! I've tried two other mid-range bike racks before; this one is the only rack I've used that works as promised. Pay the money for this rack; it may seem crazy, but it's worth it. I've had this rack on the interstate and it is rock solid. Peace of mind is worth some extra change. I really can't say enough good things about the quality on this baby.
                      One little side note is that the clearance between the rack, when it's in the folded up position, and my car, is very snug. You'll probably want to check out the racks dimensions on the manufacturers' site and do a little measuring before you place your order.
