Lighter than the lightest road bike.

Getting to your favorite singletrack or strip of scenic pavement will be easier than ever now that you have the Kuat Beta 2.0 Bike Rack. At a seriously sleek 13lbs (the 1.25in hitch option weighs 2lbs more), the Beta 2.0 carries two bikes of up to 80lbs total in secure, anti-sway carriages, so they won't bang into each other or the back of your truck when the road gets rough.

The rack is compatible with both 1.25in and 2in hitch receivers, and it even folds down and out of the way so you can unload the cooler, sleeping bags, and tent without having to remove the bikes. The Beta's hand-tight cam system makes installation easy — just twist the knob and the hitch will lock into the receiver — so you'll be in Moab by the time your convoy partners figure out how to install their rack.

  • Lightweight but sturdy hanging-style hitch rack with a 2-bike capacity
  • Anti-sway carriages minimize movement of attached bicycles
  • Cam system removes play from hitch for stability on bumpy roads
  • Rack tilts down for easy access to the back of your vehicle
  • Rack is lighter than your bike allowing easily installation

Great bike rack

I've used it several times

If you want a light weight well made bike rack then you have found it. I selected the 2” model to fit my receiver. It may just be me but initially it was not clear how to release the metal ball. The knob must be turned to allow for the bracket to be inserted into the receiver. After inserted then you can tighten the knob to secure the bike rack. The customer service from backcountry & kuat is excellent!!!!!

My bike loves it.

Gone are the days of me squishing my bike into my car. I've never been a big bike rack person, but that just changed. Exactly what I needed


Do you mind sending me an actual picture of the straps? I've researched online and their seem to be two different versions- one with chunky rubber straps (with big holes) and the one that is shown in your picture on your website. I'd like to know which one I'd be getting if bought.

Everything you need

I've used it several times

I got tired of hoisting the bike over my head and up onto the roof. I wanted something small, simple and easy to get on and off. This thing is great. Weighs half of what I remember these types of racks used to weigh. Super easy to set up. Have to just figure out where you want to strap it on and you're good. I might need to add something for the front wheel so it doesn't move around as much, but with only one bike on the back it was just fine and two will probably be just as fine. Very happy with this rack and I love the company.

Quality Rack

Due to user error I almost lost my bike on the freeway, make sure you orient the bike the way the instructions show! The attachment was visibly vibrating which made me nervous but it could have been the installation on the hitch itself and not the rack.

Nice rack!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Lightweight but study, and functionally it works great. The tightening system is nice and the rack adjusts to fit different sizes. Good choice for an easy and lightweight system.

Best lightweight rack on the market!

I've used it several times

This is getting a little bit silly but I now own 3 Kuat bike racks. One NV 2 bike, One NV 4 bike and as I prepare to send my daughter off to college I couldn't resist buying her a Beta 2 bike to use with her 1 1/4 trailer hitch. The Beta arrived in perfect condition and the quality and engineering is every bit as nice as my other racks. The rack will serve her well for years and when she isn't using it she can fold it up and store it under her bed. I should note that I had a small issue with a bent part on my NV rack, (no fault of the rack), and a quick email to Kuat resulted in a phone call from them which confirmed my address so that they could send me a replacement part at no cost. What a great product and company!

MTB bikers beware

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This rack will not work with most full suspension bikes. Just FYI. Worked great with road bikes thou

I've put it through the wringer

This rack is awesome. It's super light, but still very sturdy. I love the hand-tight cam system because it makes it fit snug in my hitch receiver, and prevents any rattle or sway. The anti-sway carriages turn to fit different frame shapes and sizes, and it's very easy to throw my bike on, strap it down, and go. The rack swings down for easy access to the back door, and the forks fold down which is nice for when I'm not hauling my bike. The folding features are also very nice for making the whole thing compact and easy to store.
