    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.

    • A two-bike hitch rack that carries up to 80lb
    • Includes semi-integrated lock for security
    • Foot lever allows you to fold rack down hands-free

    What do you think about this product?

    Have questions about this product?

    Installation is pretty brutal

      I consider myself handy with an allen wrench, and have done more than my fair share of Ikea assembly. The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 tested my every nerve though in trying to get it assembled.

      For your own sanity, ignore the assembly video on their site, and pour yourself a beer and give yourself an hour. The included instructions are directionally correct, but missing a few steps.

      What the instructions don't show for example, but becomes common sense after 20 minutes of cursing, is that there's a plate to screw the bolts into. You just have to line it up with the bolts, and then they're fine. I had a huge challenge with the 'rear tray bolt,' so make sure that you have a hammer with you to help ease it in place.

      Ditto for the 'hitch bolt.'

      All in all, I'm pretty disapointed that a product which is so expensive could be so challenging to assembly. Poor job.

      Everything you need nothing you don't

      Kuat just does it right. super functional light weight easy to assemble and install and remove. It is so lightweight that its super easy for me or my wife to remove or install. The foot release makes it easier to drop the rack and open the wagon hatch. Loading and unloading bikes so easy.

      The tightening system is perfectly place and so easy to adjust it makes locking down the rack a breeze. There are some limitations to bike size but it does everything I think i will ever need.

      Best bike rack i have ever owned by far!

      Looks great, does the job

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Not your top of the line rack, but it looks like it is. It's super functional, very secure and carries a lifetime warranty. If you wanna save a little money but still get a very nice bike rack, this is the rack to buy.

      Looks Great, Keeps Your Bike Secure

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Kuat really knows how to design a good looking rack. That was my main reason for going with this one as I didn't want a bulkier looking ones such as the NV 2.0 or the Thule T2 Pro. Easy to install and very light for ease of removal when you don't need it. Provides plenty of clearance, with bikes on, to open the hatch of my Subaru when set in the down angle position.

      Now with the bad... it really doesn't fit anything bigger than that a 47in wheelbase. Even at max wheelbase length it is a tight squeeze. With the way it is designed when you have the longer wheelbases it fits kind of wonky. Wish the front tire fold up stop was adjustable so you could play with the positioning with the bike. I think Kuat really missed it with this part.

      Even with this small issue the rack was secure for more than 2000 miles in 2 months and was worry free with road trips to and from UT to CA. If you have more questions about the rack please feel free to reach out to me.

      Trunk Access w/ Push of a Lever

      It's so easy to use this rack! Kuat's 2.0 improves upon all the areas of weakness of the very popular and successful 1.0, which wakes the 2.0 a friggin dream! From the front-accessible cable locking point, to the easy-to-access lever for folding up or tilting back, and collapsible wheel cages, the Sherpa 2.0 will make you very happy. Pictured here on my '09 Honda CRV.

      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.

      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).
