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.


  • Powder-coated finish.
  • Available in multiple colors.
  • Fits 2" receivers.
  • 2 bike capacity, up to 40 lbs each.
  • Fits wheelbases up to 47" and tires up to 3" wide.

The Best! Great design, materials, and fabrication

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.

Good looking rack

It is a good looking rack and works very well. Easy to use and adjust the fit for my receiver. Once you have it tightened it does not bounce around or make any noise. I have several friends that have Kuat racks and they like them. It is a very good product, not the cheapest but you do get a good looking rack for the money that holds the bike securely in place.

Well designed Rack Excellent quality.....

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.........

This is what all bike racks should be like

This is an awesome bike trailer. Supports 2 bikes and has built-in locking capabilities to the trailer to help protect your investment. While the price is a little on the high end, you will see every penny well spent when this is delivered to you. It took about 30 minutes to set up.

BikeTiresDirect had this shipped and at my door very quickly. Pricing was the best I had found across multiple stores and websites. Earning points towards a future purchase was a great added bonus.

Kuat will definitely be my go-to for any future bike rack needs.

The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Hitch Rack surpased my expectations!

Kuat's attention to detail and quality make the Sherpa 2.0 an outstanding bike carrier. Even though it costs over $400, it is well-worth the investment. The expanding ball system ensures a tight fit with the vehicle hitch. The carrier is made from aluminum making it lighter and much easier to attach to the vehicle hitch. It takes seconds to load and secure bicycles. And, the integrated locking cable gives you peace of mind. Nothing is full-proof. It will prevent someone from a quick grab and go.

Awesome Rack

Looks great. Sturdy, solid rack. Holds my full suspension 29er perfectly. Even holds my son's 24 MTB without the adapter. Not sure how secure the included lock is? I will be using an additional cable lock if my bike(s) will be unattended for an extended period.

quick and easy.

Wanted something more compact and lighter than my old swing-away style. This fits the bill. Assembly was easy (I'm mechanically inclinedexperienced.) I could understand someone finding it challenging. I used a rubber mallet to engage the pieces prior to bolting home.

Carried the bikes 'tween central Oregon and SOCAL just fine.

An extraordinary product

The price point may seem a bit ridiculous. However, if you can foot the bill, the product is of such high quality, that the purchase is worthwhile. The rack is sturdy and easy to install (although you do need a torque wrench), and makes me feel very secure about my bikes. Road racers to wide tire niners fit with no problem, and the lock features are great. If someone needs a long-term bike transport system, this is the answer.

Fantastic Rack!

I love this thing. Not the easiest to put together, but certainly not the most difficult either. Once it's built, it is sturdy, lightweight and does not flop around at all once tightened into place. Also, loading and unloading bikes could not be easier, I've used with my 29er, CX and road bike with no problems.

positives Looks good, installs without tools, easy to raise and lower with the bikes so you have access to the hatchback, lighter than most, bikes are held securely, locking features.

negatives Cost, it's still heavier than I'd like.
