Why We Like The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack

We like the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 because it's lightweight, easy to use, and capable of hauling just about any bike around—short of a 50-pound freeride monster. The Sherpa 2.0 supports two bikes up to 40 pounds each, and it features a foot-actuated pivot lever that we can use to unfold the rack, even with our hands full. Kuat modified the design to create a greater 14-inch space between bikes, so they both have plenty of personal space on longer trips.

Great company

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I bought this recently after looking at some other options from Kuat. Due to being in the same town as the company it is a very popular local brand around here. The Sherpa is the lightest of the racks I looked at which is great if it won’t just be left on the vehicle. I also bought their kayak racks and when I wanted all of the lock cylinders to match all I had to do was reach out to them and they handled right at their local no questions asked. The quality and ease of use is great, but this one is not expandable for more bike unlike others they make.

Light weight. Low profile

This rack is what I was hoping for. Minimal. No bells and whistles. Just a solid, reliable bike rack. Light weight. 15 lbs less than my OG Kuat rack. Kuat knows how to do it.

Rack Gets Me to Ride More

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Love my Sherpa! Agree with other 5 star reviews. Easy to load bikes which gets me out of the house faster. Looks great and seems well built.

Great rack for road bikes

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I bought the 2 inch version to transport my road bikes on long road trips. I wanted a rack that was sturdy and wouldn't harm the bikes while spending hours on the road. The rack has been fantastic. Unfortunately when I bought a new car I needed to switch from a 2 inch hitch to a 1.25 inch hitch. Luckily, Kuat has a rack for both situations.

Fantastic Bike Carrier

Familiarity:

One of the best MTB accessories I've ever purchased. This thing is extremely well built and should last for many years to come. Do yourself a favor, don't waist your time or money on something cheap trying to save a few bucks...buy this one! Enjoy!

Easy to use but blocks car's exhaust

Familiarity:
I returned this product before using it

It's very easy to load bikes onto this bike rack and fold it up and down. Unfortunately, the swing arm sits right in front of my car's exhaust ('18 BMW X1) when folded up so I returned it.

Fantastic Design and Durability

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Purchased this several months ago for transporting two bikes locally. Love the design! It is easy to use and very aesthetically pleasing as well. Easy for me (50 yr old female) to load onto my hitch and secure. Easy to load the bikes and secure these as well. Appears to be well made and durable. Good purchase.

Doesn't work well for long/modern bikes

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I've had this rack for several years and it's not holding up well. My bikes (medium Pivot Firebird and medium Scott Genius) each have a wheelbase of nearly 48" (not super long, but definitely not short). The rear wheel hangs somewhat off the rack and stresses the front tire cradle. This seems to be causing stress on all pivots on the rack. I looked up the capacity of the Sherpa 2.0 and apparently it is only designed to hold bikes with a wheelbase up to 47", so I guess it's not good for modern/large bikes. I noticed that Kuat's other racks (NV and Transfer) hold bikes with a wheelbase up to 50". Perhaps those would be a better option.

Nice Rack!

Familiarity:

Size Bought:
2 inch receiver

Took 15 minutes to install taking the tips from other reviews to follow unpacking instructions. Only thing I didn't like was the hitch pin is small for my Ram. Will use master lock in its place. Other than that it's super easy to use and great tilting feature. Easy load and unload.
