I had the NV 2 Rack for two years, and I loved it! I decided to upgrade to the NV2.0 after reading all of the details of how Kuat has upgraded this rack that I loved already. I wasn't sure if it was going to be worth spending the extra cash to upgrade my rig, but after using the new one for a week I am pretty jazzed I did! Literally every detail of what Kuat upgraded from the old NV to this new one is clutch! I love that each bike will have its own lock now, as it was much the struggle to get the old lock to connect with two bikes on. I also absolutely love the lever to adjust the rack, it is so much easier to move up and down if my hands are full. Even the arms are easier to open and close, seriously this new version is amazing! So hyped I grabbed one!
