Current Version Works with NV 2.0 Rack!

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

I wanted to hook my 1.25" NV 2.0 rack on the back of the ATV to do some downhill rides in the canyon near my house, but all the reviews said the hitch pin hole isn't in the right spot so you can't get the small locking hitch pin through the hole. I bought this adapter with the intention to drill a hole so this would work with my NV, but to my surprise there was a nice long oval hole where big circle in the picture is. I put the adapter on my hitch and put it the 2" hitch receiver I was able to get my small locking hitch pin to go through! Kuat updated the adapter to work with the NV, but nothing has been said yet on the internet.

If you buy this adapter after June 1st 2018, it should work with your NV rack.


  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

My car has a 1.25" hitch receiver but my wife's is 2". This adapter makes it possible to use our Kuat Sherpa 2.0 on both cars. It's super easy to install / remove and you can still use the anti-rattle device.

1.25 -> 2

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Have these to use my kuat bike rack on 2 different cars. One car is 1.25 and the van is 2 inches

Does what it's supposed to

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bought this since the only available Kuat bike rack at the time was the 1.25", and my SUV has a 2" trail hitch. This works great and now I have the bonus option of moving it to a different car that only has the 1.25" hitch.

Get's The Job Done

    Works just as described. If you've got a 2 inch hitch and need to go to a 1.25, this is what you need.

    Works great

    Not much to it, fills in empty space in the larger receiver
