Lighter than the lightest road bike.
Getting to your favorite singletrack or strip of scenic pavement will be easier than ever now that you have the Kuat Beta 2.0 Bike Rack. At a seriously sleek 12lbs (the 1.25in hitch option weighs 2lbs more), the Beta 2.0 carries two bikes of up to 80lbs total in secure, anti-sway carriages, so they won't bang into each other or the back of your truck when the road gets rough.
The rack is compatible with both 1.25in and 2in hitch receivers, and it even folds down and out of the way so you can unload the cooler, sleeping bags, and tent without having to remove the bikes. The Beta's hand-tight cam system makes installation easy — just twist the knob and the hitch will lock into the receiver — so you'll be in Moab by the time your convoy partners figure out how to install their rack.

Great for small spaces...
The Kuat Beta is a PERFECT rack where storage space is limited. It's super lightweight and folds down to a compact and easily-stored unit. This rack would be ideal for road bikes with a horizontal, or slightly sloping top tubes, and apartment/city dwellers.
Because of the Beta's compactness, there's a bit of unfolding, and inserting thru pins, and adjusting involved each time you use it.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This rack is awesome. It's super light, but still very sturdy. I love the hand-tight cam system because it makes it fit snug in my hitch receiver, and prevents any rattle or sway. The anti-sway carriages turn to fit different frame shapes and sizes, and it's very easy to throw my bike on, strap it down, and go. The rack swings down for easy access to the back door, and the forks fold down which is nice for when I'm not hauling my bike. The folding features are also very nice for making the whole thing compact and easy to store.
