Carrying your bikes to the trailhead shouldn't inspire sighs of dread ahead of a weekend about to be spent on world class singletrack. If it does, you're doing something wrong. Load your line-slaying babies onto the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack and simplify your packing routine so you can get to your destination and snag a campsite before sunset. As long as you aren't shuttling DH or freeride monsters around, the Sherpa will support two bikes, up to 40lb each, and it features a foot-actuated pivot lever that you can use to unfold the rack if your hands are full. This year, Kuat modified the design to create more space between bikes—14in—so they both have plenty of personal space to keep the peace on longer trips.

Kuat does it again!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I had the original Sherpa and it was the best hitch rack design that I had seen for a smaller car; the Sherpa 2.0 improves upon all of the small complaints I had with the original.
Everything folds up small enough that nothing makes contact with the back of my car anymore (rather cars as I have 2 of these racks now).
For such a light rack, it has done a great job of hauling mountain bikes, and is supremely secure. The new lever to allow the rack to lower so you can get into your rear hatch is also significantly more robust and has a very positive feel.
The lock redesign is also aces; much easier to use and access.
So far, I have zero issues with the new rack, and am absolutely floored by the quality and thought that went into this.

Never put bikes on your roof again....this model is super light but still burly, very easy to assemble, and works great.

Is the Kuat Sherpa 2 expandable to 4 bikes, like the NV? If yes, does it use the same extender as the NV or does it have it's own (I could not find a Sherpa 2 extender for 4 bikes).
Hey John - There is no add-on extender for the Sherpa 2.0 so it can carry 4 bikes. I would recommend you go for the NV 2.0 if you need to transport that many bikes. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions on Kuat or any other bike racks. - Kyle L. - Expert Gearhead
