The Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Hitch Rack is the culmination of years of feedback from the original NV, resulting in a redesigned rack that works and looks better than ever before. A new pivot system includes a foot-operated lever to fold down the rack, and adjustability is improved with 3-position front wheel cradles for getting adequate clearance between handlebars and saddles.

The NV 2.0 can handle tires up to 4.8" wide and the ratcheting arm is more intuitive to operate while providing increased stability. Individual locking cables allow each bike to be secured separately and a locking hitch ensures the rack stays put.

Not just a gimmick, an integrated Trail Doc work stand allows for hassle-free maintenance at the trailhead or start line. It's seen a ground-up redevelopment to ensure it provides a pro-level feel, including a ratcheting clamp with a spring-loaded release to make it quicker and easier to get bikes in the stand.

Features:

  • Fits 20" to 29" tires (wheel adapter needed for 20-24" tires)
  • 4.8" max tire width (may require Phat Bike Kit straps)
  • 48" max wheelbase
  • Two bike capacity up to 60 lbs each
  • Rack tilts down for access to vehicle hatch
  • Can carry up to 4 bikes with optional NV 2.0 Add-on

I love how fast it is to get one or two bikes loaded in and out of this rack. The peace of mind after loading them up is great too. I don't have to worry about bike sway or the stability of the rack when I'm driving.

A couple of things that could be better: I don't like how the release lever is next to the inside bike. When you have more than one bike racked up it becomes more difficult to raise and lower the rack (this becomes more difficult with the Kuat bike extensions). Another problem that I have is with the supplied bike lock. It isn't long enough to wrap around a wheel, frame, and the wheel of the neighboring bike. So you can only lock up the frame and one wheel from each bike. I also presume that a quick pinch with bolt cutters will free up these bikes pretty quickly if a thief decides to try it out.

I use this product to make some nice trips with my 10 years old daughter to different bike paths around the Washington, D.C., area. It is a safe practical and easy to use product that fits my car perfectly! I like everything about it. I rated this very good product with 4 stars because it is a bit heavy and it was not easy to assemble. For the rest, it is a very good product!

Well built and easy load and unload the bikes. Wish it was just a bit lighter for removal from the receiver and lugging it into the garage. Easily accommodates my gravel bike and my mountain bike. Integrated cable lock is clever. Definitely better built than other bike racks I have owned over the years.

I've owned a number of racks over the years and this is by far the easiest to use, the least stressful on the bikes, and the most flexible with respect to frame style, wheel size, etc. I was easily able to fit a fat bike and full suspension MTB bike together.

The rack also has a cool built-in bike repair stand which has come in useful on more than one occasion.

The only problem I've had with it was when my wife ran the car through the car wash the day before we were leaving for a cycling trip and the temperature overnight was well below freezing. I had to get out a hair dryer to warm up the front wheel clamps so they would extend.

This rack carries both my mountain and road with ease. The extras included, I.e, fat tire strap, work station bar, built in locks, are a real plus. Best rack on the market, and a real value when purchased on a WBW sale.

In today's world I am rarely impressed with quality of anything I buy but this is truly a high quality piece of equipment. Fit and finish were very nice and it was very simple to assemble and use. It is a bit pricey but you get what you pay for and I see this lasting for a very very very long time.

The Kuat NV 2.0 built quality is sturdy and and strong with a great design. The extendable option with one or two bike rack add-ons gives the flexibility to carry three to four bikes. Recommend for bike enthusiasts.

Great Hitch Bike Rack
rating
by Romy C

I have owned the original Kuat NV and that has served me a great deal in transporting my bike for years. You can mount any bike on this rack from road to fat bikes. Unfortunately another motorist rear ended me and damaged it. I had to get another rack and it was a no-brainer for me to choose the Kuat brand and it did not disappoint with the NV 2.0. This rack is far better overall than the NV. Stable, easier to lock and unlock to the hitch. This thing is solid and has no play up or down, side to side when mounted. My old NV rocks up and down quite a bit. For the price it is well worth it. And by the way, their customer service is top notch. Kudos to the guys at Kuat.

The only con is the weight. On the flip side of that it just goes to show you how well it's made. The rack locks into the hitch so there is no movement what so ever. Built in lock cables for each bike a plus.

This is the perfect bike rack for our needs. We pop it on for occasionally trips, and can lock the rack to the car and the bikes to the rack for security. Its sturdy with the ability to make bike adjustments. And pivots down to allow us to open the trunk. Worth the money!!

I've always been a Yakima fan for their quality. This rack is far superior even to the highest quality Yak Racks. It's so well mad I wonder if it's over engineered which has driven up the cost. Sure it is very sturdy but I love that my bike goes on ready to drive in 5 seconds. The cable locks are fairly beefy at 9mm, but I'd never leave a high priced rig out of sight. Still, much thicker than many racks out there. They also have clever details you might miss such as stops to hold the cable locks tucked into place to prevent them from just falling out when setting the rack up for storage. These kinds of things can be a pain if left out at design time.

The double carrier is quite heavy. It seems strange to need a 55lbs rack to hold a 17lb bike, but okay. I really like the hitch securing mechanism designed to remove rack wobble. Most hitch racks have a single bolt to pull the rack to one side of the hitch receiver. That stops side-side wobble but up and down is completely uncontrolled. Kuat designers most cleverly use a steel ball that engages the corner of the square hitch receiver on the inside. This contacts 2 sides of the receiver hole so it does not flop up and down or side to side. And you don't need a wrench to secure it. Brilliant. The finish is also top notch and looks great.

Did some research and came to the conclusion that the Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Hitch Rack would be the best solution for us. We transport road and fat tire bikes. It's easy to put on the car, easy to fasten the bikes. It's a very solid good looking hitch rack. Very happy with our purchase.

Nice sturdy rack. No movement in the hitch when internal cam wedge applied. Will NOT WORK with F 150 pick up if you want to lower tailgate. Front tire trays hit and will dent tailgate. You will need to load your truck first and then put on rack and bikes unless you want to climb overside of truck or tailgate to access your bed storage. Bikes are secure when properly mounted. Self stored locking cable not long enough to reach frame of bikes, good only to lock front wheel. Hitch lock ok, but would be better if lock was integrated into knob that you turn to set cam wedge and disengages like the Thule rack. Then a would be thief couldn't just cut locking pin and walk off with whole rack and bikes. Still a very good rack and holds 2 heavy bikes 50 lbs each with ease. No rack is perfect. You have to pick your preferences.

Removed 1 star because cannot lower pick up tailgate with rack on truck and also there could be a better engineered hitch lock to prevent someone with grinder or cutting wheel to cut off lock and walk away with all your gear.

This rack is pricy but is worth the money. Absolutely rock solid construction. You will never need to worry about enroute damage from bikes rubbing against one another and loading and unloading is really quick and simple. The only down side is weight and storage considerations. In the four bike configuration the rack is really heavy and will add four feet to the overall length of vehicle.
