So secure, easy to load and unload. It is easy for me to attach to our vehicle. 820587, It is a great product that came highly recommended by others who own it. Customer service did a great job and received it in 2 days. We love the feature that allows us to tilt the rack (with the bikes on) so that we can open the lift gate. Although the Saris Freedom SuperClamp 2 Bike Rack EX, # SA4025F, is a great bike bike, the Kuat Sherpa, # S101, just seems to be built to higher quality standards. Easy to install, load bikes and unload. The anti-rattle knob is a tiny bit harder to reach but it appears to do its job. 573969, The guys (and gals) at etrailer are great. You won't go wrong if you stay with E-Gtrailer for any of their products! I also like the large front well cups, which seem to be more secure than what is on the Sherpa. Great online info to help me select the best rack for my two expensive bikes. The rack is on the heavy side, but not too heavy. Things I like: Bikes are secure and don't bang and get damaged. It took 4 weeks to be delivered. Photo #4 shows a closeup of the Sherpa 2.0 on my Tiguan. On the good side, I like the way it tilts down with the foot release. Enter the Sherpa and honestly I don't feel like I lost anything. Works well. 941474, I have owned many bike racks. Hoping to hit the road this weekend. 655750, This bike carrier is a great value. 844978, Holds my 58cm road bike and my Large 29er mountain perfectly. 249114, Order carrier on Saturday afternoon and it was deliver Tuesday.

I did not want to take away the space I could have in my roof. 468220, We saw another Kuat rack at our local train head. Still loving it after a year!! Assembly was a breeze, and learning to mount and secure bikes was equally simple. I like that it folds down easily and sets up in seconds. 653674, So glad to have my transfer. There are definitely better racks but they can get crazy expensive. Super customer service. This is a "no frame" contact, extremely easy bike load design. It also looks very sleek and stylish and goes very well with my white Nissan murano! Very easy to put the bike on and off, I will still want to use one more strap around the bar as it seems like the attachments are minimal but this is probable just me. Also like the way it tilts so I can get into the hatch. Unlike some similar racks the Kuat Transfer 3 will require some aligning of components and turning of bolts. 290189, It is sturdy and the bikes are on securely even driving on uneven terrain. The assembly took 1/2 hour. A bit loose in our hitch had to make a wedge to stop it rattling. • The add-on locking system that I purchased is mediocre but better than nothing. I appreciate your quick service in my time of need! Easy on easy off, no damage to the bikes or the car. The only thing I didn't care for, was there are no torque specifications for what to tighten the bolts/nuts to in the instructions, so you have to be the judge on if you think it is tight enough. The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 # SH22G and the NV 2.0 # NV22G that you referenced are both excellent platform-style racks that will hold your bikes by the front wheels with no frame contact. - The bars now squeak loudly when I am moving them up and down. Only thing to be aware of is that it is quite heavy, making it challenging to mount & dismount from car on its own I'm happy. This rack is solid. Easy to put together and install on the hitch. Will definitely order from them in the future. 5 stars Would recommend it without a problem The packaging design was flawless with no damage or scuff marks on any of the individual pieces; they were all well protected. Overall, I am happy and could have given it 4.5 but there is no option to do that. I don't know why I thought it was made out of aluminum. Kuat vs North Shore So I'm going to be switching over from a roof rack set up to a hitch rack set up for my '13 BRZ and looking for some rack advice from people who have tried these. The 2" receiver mount system includes a black knob that can be tightened (at the end of the Sherpa) and this snugs up a steel ball inside of your receiver hitch - so that the Sherpa SH22G is anti-rattle; and that system is very clever and appears to work great. built and installed the transfer 1 on my car and its looking and functioning very well. No issues and very happy with purchase. The rack is easy to load the bike (no center bars) and the tilt feature is easy to reach with your foot in order to open the car's lift gate. it works out great for my fat tire mountain bike. I would definitely recommend this product. The etrailer website videos showing features and operation were much appreciated however the assembly instructions were lacking. Assembly was not too bad only suggestion would be to make sure holes line up for rear bolt tray when putting in the long tray assembly bolts in the rear tray mount. You don't want any bigger than this for a sedan. I'm confident it is strong, and will perform well for years. And, buy it from Etrailer. Discover the distinctions between Kuat NV 2 Vs Thule T2 is challenging since both models have numerous commonalities. An issue I have run into is that my rack has some fore/aft play and also makes a 'knock' sound when being jiggled. 277748, This rack is the bomb! Have used it numerous times with no problems. I keep it installed permanently for biking throughout the year including severe cold and snow. Boxing was first class, all parts were neatly organized in the box. The Sherpa has a horrible wheelbase limit. For additional safety (3 bikes obscure car tail lights a bit) I added red Bike reflectors on ends of frame, red reflective tape to hold-down bars and rigged a hitch receiver brake light to the rack center. Sturdy. 771802, After one full year of use, I report that the Transfer 2 is lightweight, easy to use, doesn't rattle, and doesn't block my rear-view camera...best value out there. 477069, Great web site, excellent description of the products, easy ordering process and very quick delivery. The unit easily folds up and down and we have easy access to the rear storage area of our Tiguan with the empty rack or with it folded down with the bikes loaded. It is kind of heavy when you put it in the hitch, but it is heavy duty and I have no fears that it will break or get damaged. Great Product. Very easy and quick to get bikes on and off. My wife is able to install and remove. 920892, Awesome product. Also bought the cable locks and hitch lock to use with the rack. I saved over $ 70 from my local bike shop!! I have had this rack for one year and have taken my bikes on this rack all over and they are secured extremely well. I liked that the shipping didn't take only a few days This rack installs very easily, directions are clear, without rushing about 20 to 30 minutes should do it. eTrailer customer service is outstanding. The only other thing with a pickup is that you can access tailgate, but can not let tailgate all the way down. 568058, Ordered the SH22B Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Platform Rack for my 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe. I told him I thought I could make it fit with just a tiny bit of work with a round file, but wanted to make sure that if I did that they wouldn't say I voided the warranty. Loading and removing the bikes is very simple and easy. I was hoping for a rack that would not stand between me and a bike ride, and it does exactly that! Highly recommend this rack for its sturdiness, durability, and price value. 796251, Good quality and design. 645110, Works well so far with my full suspension 29er. Solid, secure and doesn't rattle or wiggle around. Very happy that the screw holds rack tight to the hitch since my other rack sways a lot on corners and uneven roads. I liked the shipping costs (free) I preface all my comments with the fact that this is my first bike rack purchase. 491014, Assembled easily. 473089, After a year, the rack is holding up fine. Kuat rack continues to be great. 799413, I bought this trailer hitch because it's a platform tilt away design. 485892, I absolutely love this bike rack, and use it every day that the weather permits. I was using a 3/8 ratchet with an hex-head driver and ended up pushing a spacer too far into the assembly. 639176, Its ease of use to secure and mount bikes quickly makes this rack the best choice in this class. All parts fit together correctly and tightly, indicating to me that the design and quality of the product wasn't shoddy or forgotten. 769832, Super rack... stylish and secure. I’m a 69 year old woman so weight of the rack is important. Really taking my time, assembly took about 1 hour. Easy to maneuver to allow access to the cargo area. I use this bike rack daily. 635102, Very impressive design and well engineered. Purchasing the locks (sold separately) is definitely a good investment. They should have add how tight the bolts should be as most materials are hard plastic to prevent cracks or stripped. Really nice rack. Looks great and is very sturdy. This review is for the rack itself. 572602, I have been using the SH22G for 3 months and have made 4 trips at over 2 hours each way to try it out. 12/09/2018 Both appear to be very well constructed, and I am looking forward to using the rack for our trip to Florida. I am very handy and it still took me three hours to put it together. I had to loosen two of the large factory tightened bolts to get everything to line up during assembly but no big deal in the end. 522961, Bike rack arrived promptly and undamaged. 793542, Instructions were great except for the depiction of one bolt that shows to only have threads on a quarter of the shaft, where the actual bolt has threads all the way up. Will put it to test soon with a longer test ride. Specialized CRUX Just check eTrailers online shipping page & you know when it has arrived. One of the critical features for us was that the platform rack, minus bikes, had to fit under the tailgate when gate was dropped fully down. 345515, Rack went together very easy seems to be extremely well-made folds up nice looks great on my vehicle very very well- pleased .You could spend $200 more but I really don't know why.

What are the sun's thoughts on the Kuat Transfer 2 bicycle rack? It's fairly annoying if you pay attention to such things. 792726, Excellent service and products. Hatch opens with plenty of room to spare on our road bikes when in tilt position. I have checked with Kuat, and at this time they do now have an adapter that would help close the gap for bikes smaller than 12 inch wheels. 796775, What a great company. Well worth the money, holds my bike very securely. The rack looks well built and really easy to set the bikes on. 255326, Because is new on the market, this product was a back order. Several people have asked where I bought it and I have told them about your great reliable service.

Had to call and get the Fat bike kit sent, so that took and extra couple days, they had Kuat send them instead of taking them out of their own stock, must have been a mess up in shipping department?

I am sure my bike will be very safe on this rack. This bike rack is very easy to mount and use.
