Item # KUA000G

No fears.

Tube damage from over-zealous clamping, flying road debris, quick-release skewers molesting frames—the dangers of auto-borne bikes are rightly feared. Kuat's Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack addresses many of our rack-related reservations by securing the bikes in sleds without wrenching down on the top tube and leaving an expanded 14in between each machine. The sleds are reinforced to support bikes weighing up to 40lb, and the foot-actuated pivot lever lets you unfold the rack when your upstairs appendages are occupied with bikes or laden with trip supplies.

  • A two-bike hitch rack that carries up to 80lb
  • Includes semi-integrated lock for security
  • Foot lever allows you to fold rack down hands-free
  • No-tool assembly saves time and stress

Looks Great, Keeps Your Bike Secure

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Kuat really knows how to design a good looking rack. That was my main reason for going with this one as I didn't want a bulkier looking ones such as the NV 2.0 or the Thule T2 Pro. Easy to install and very light for ease of removal when you don't need it. Provides plenty of clearance, with bikes on, to open the hatch of my Subaru when set in the down angle position.

Now with the bad... it really doesn't fit anything bigger than that a 47in wheelbase. Even at max wheelbase length it is a tight squeeze. With the way it is designed when you have the longer wheelbases it fits kind of wonky. Wish the front tire fold up stop was adjustable so you could play with the positioning with the bike. I think Kuat really missed it with this part.

Even with this small issue the rack was secure for more than 2000 miles in 2 months and was worry free with road trips to and from UT to CA. If you have more questions about the rack please feel free to reach out to me.

Trunk Access w/ Push of a Lever

It's so easy to use this rack! Kuat's 2.0 improves upon all the areas of weakness of the very popular and successful 1.0, which wakes the 2.0 a friggin dream! From the front-accessible cable locking point, to the easy-to-access lever for folding up or tilting back, and collapsible wheel cages, the Sherpa 2.0 will make you very happy.

Kuat does it again!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I had the original Sherpa and it was the best hitch rack design that I had seen for a smaller car; the Sherpa 2.0 improves upon all of the small complaints I had with the original.

Everything folds up small enough that nothing makes contact with the back of my car anymore (rather cars as I have 2 of these racks now).

For such a light rack, it has done a great job of hauling mountain bikes, and is supremely secure. The new lever to allow the rack to lower so you can get into your rear hatch is also significantly more robust and has a very positive feel.

The lock redesign is also aces; much easier to use and access.

So far, I have zero issues with the new rack, and am absolutely floored by the quality and thought that went into this.

Rear mount racks rule

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Never put bikes on your roof again....this model is super light but still burly, very easy to assemble, and works great.

Is the Kuat Sherpa 2 expandable to 4 bikes, like the NV? If yes, does it use the same extender as the NV or does it have it's own (I could not find a Sherpa 2 extender for 4 bikes).

Hey John - There is no add-on extender for the Sherpa 2.0 so it can carry 4 bikes. I would recommend you go for the NV 2.0 if you need to transport that many bikes. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions on Kuat or any other bike racks. - Kyle L. - Expert Gearhead
