This is the perfect bike rack for our needs. We pop it on for occasionally trips, and can lock the rack to the car and the bikes to the rack for security. Its sturdy with the ability to make bike adjustments. And pivots down to allow us to open the trunk. Worth the money!!
Did some research and came to the conclusion that the Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Hitch Rack would be the best solution for us. We transport road and fat tire bikes. It's easy to put on the car, easy to fasten the bikes. It's a very solid good looking hitch rack. Very happy with our purchase.
Nice sturdy rack. No movement in the hitch when internal cam wedge applied. Will NOT WORK with F 150 pick up if you want to lower tailgate. Front tire trays hit and will dent tailgate. You will need to load your truck first and then put on rack and bikes unless you want to climb overside of truck or tailgate to access your bed storage. Bikes are secure when properly mounted. Self stored locking cable not long enough to reach frame of bikes, good only to lock front wheel. Hitch lock ok, but would be better if lock was integrated into knob that you turn to set cam wedge and disengages like the Thule rack. Then a would be thief couldn't just cut locking pin and walk off with whole rack and bikes. Still a very good rack and holds 2 heavy bikes 50 lbs each with ease. No rack is perfect. You have to pick your preferences.
Removed 1 star because cannot lower pick up tailgate with rack on truck and also there could be a better engineered hitch lock to prevent someone with grinder or cutting wheel to cut off lock and walk away with all your gear.
This rack is pricy but is worth the money. Absolutely rock solid construction. You will never need to worry about enroute damage from bikes rubbing against one another and loading and unloading is really quick and simple. The only down side is weight and storage considerations. In the four bike configuration the rack is really heavy and will add four feet to the overall length of vehicle.
