The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Hitch Rack improves upon the original design, carrying up to two bikes with convenience and security like never before. Folding front-tire cradles create more space between the rack and the vehicle when in the upright position, and a foot-actuated lever makes it easier than ever to tilt the rack down to access a vehicle's tailgate. The no-tool design uses a hand-tightened hitch cam system for hassle-free installation, and at just 32 lbs, the process is a completely feasible one-person job. Bikes are quickly and safely secured with a co-molded rear-tire strap that protects paint. Out front, an intuitive ratcheting cradle holds tires tight without being stubborn to release. A semi-integrated locking cable secures the rack and bikes, providing peace of mind when the rack and bikes are left unattended.

I have had my eyes on this rack for a long time. It is a solid, sturdy platform to transport my bikes to my favorite trails. Assembly was relatively simple (make sure you have a torque wrench) and when I attached to the receiver on my car, I was thrilled. The rack tightened right up to where there was no wobble and the lever to drop it down was easily accessible. It looks great, performs great and I am looking forward to many years of use from this rack. When BTD had the sale on it, I jumped because it was a hella deal!
New replacement for my wrecked Sherpa 2.0. Well-made and good looking rack that gets the job done for small and large autos. Got the 1 1/4 hitch and 2 in adapter to use between two vehicles. Couldnï¿½t beat the price anywhere when using BTD VIP points.
`I'm very happy with the purchase of this rack . I don't generally keep the rack on my SUV, storing it in garage when not in use. What drew me to the Sherpa 2.0 is the 32 lb weight. This rack is 17 lbs lighter than the similar one it replaced...which makes installation and removal a breeze. The knob that takes the rattle out of the hitch connection is a great feature. Assembly was straightforward. My road and gravel bike quickly attach, and are very secure.
This rack is easy all the way around. You can mount it on your car in seconds and putting the bikes on and off it is so simple. It's fantastic. So well designed - it's even easy to use their lock to attach the bikes to the rack for security. The installation was a snap as well. All the tools you need come in the box and you can assemble it very quickly
This is my third hitch. I couldn't ask for a better one. It does not rattle or wobble while on the car so no annoying noises when I hit bumps on rough roads. Bikes go on extremely easily. Better yet, the hitch is very light and the easiest to install and remove of the three hitches I own. Wait, there's more. It will drop down with the simple flip of a lever to allow the rack to go from the upright stored position to the flat position to allow me to open the rear hatch door. No more struggling to pull pins, etc. You cannot go wrong with this hitch.
This is a Great lightweight rack yet very sturdy easy to load bikes and fold up when not using and can tilt down with bikes loaded on rack to open Subaru Outback rear hatch with plenty of clearance. Also very stylish looking. Purchased the white which matches white paint on car. And purchased here for lowest price. Love this rack had racks on top of car, This makes it much easier to load and dont have to worry about any clearance problems and should be less drag saving gas. Would Buy again a little pricey but worth the investment.
The rack is absolutely beautiful. The gray matched my charcoal gray Honda Ridgeline perfectly. I love the anti-wobble function and the way the rack can be tipped towards the tailgate when not in use. The unit is reasonably light and top quality all the way. I do, however, prefer a frame clamp arm (as opposed to a tire clamp arm) to hold bikes in place as it makes loading easier. It is also a bit awkward to tilt the rack when bikes are loaded. Overall, I love it!
Bought this rack to replace a Yakima traditional style frame holder hitch mount. I wanted something more secure because one of the bikes is a step through. I haven't had a chance to use it given the snow in the NE, but the assembly was easy, rock solid on the car, so it should work as intended. It is a little pricey but you get what you pay for. This rack also has a cable lock that locks the bike to the rack. One thing I didn't like was the hitch pin. I felt it was too long and could be exposed to a bolt cutter. So, I ordered a different 3rd party hitch pin that doesn't stick out as far, which I think will make it more difficult for someone with bad intentions.
It is well built and looks really nice. With all the new axle combinations we needed to upgrade our rack. I wanted this one over the more expensive model mostly because of the weight. It is great for the most part and we are still very happy all but no adjustability. I guess the model above would have had some. I can't make all my bikes work on this rack. All of our mountain bike seam to work but I can't get my gravel bike to work with any of them. I am going to try raising the back wheel and strapping it down and see if I can make it work somehow. It will work for most applications though. I just wish it has just a little adjustment to it. Thought this might help someone looking to buy. I would have still bought this one probably because of the weight and ease of moving it around. It really is a nice high quality product.
Shipping - Shipping box is well-designed, heavy-duty. Rack arrived in perfect shape, and when promised.
Assembly - NIce that the container served as an assembly jig. Assembly was pretty easy, no problems. All necessary tools included.
Materials, fabrication, finish - All top notch. Love the powder coat finish & weight; easy to carry/maneuver
Design, functionality - Just awesome!! This thing looks great. The rack mounts easily & very securely to the 2" hitch with *zero* rattling, and the bikes go on/off so easily and securely. Took on its maiden voyage yesterday - two bikes, 40 mi round trip with highway speeds & winds blowing mid-teens, gusts to low-20's. Very secure. I am completely happy with this rack! Highly recommended.
This was on back order everywhere. But glad I waited. Easy assembly, simple to use and it is super solid, holding my bikes quickly and well.
Great customer support from BikeTiresDirect keeping me up to date in ship date.
Considering the quality, this rack is worth the high price tag. I just finished my 3rd season w this rack and still looks and works great. It is not expandable like the other Kuat model, but carries up to 2 bikes securely. I have had a very good ownership experience with the Kuat Sherpa, If this rack was $300 bucks, everyone that I know would own one.........
