Number of Bikes 2
Hitch Receiver (in.) 1.25 and 2

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely sturdy Looked quite a bit at various models. I purchased a 2017 Specialized Stumpjumper Carbon and wanted something that was secure, sturdy, and theft proof. Fastastc rack. The knob for tightening the receiver fitting is genius to prevent any wobbling. Also love the integrated lock system. Bike is rock solid when tightened down. It is a bit more expensive but worth every dollar. Extremely well designed and constructed. The black matte finish of the NV Base is very sleek looking. One of the few racks that accommodates road bikes, standard mtb, and fat bikes.

Does this rack adjust to carry kids bikes?

Asked by: Mike
This hitch rack can carry children's bikes with a 20 inch tire, however, it requires a wheel adaptor from the manufacturer.

What is the difference between this rack and the more expensive Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Hitch? Also, does it come with an adapter to fit a 2" receiver? If not, is an adapter available for purchase?

Asked by: Teamshort
The NV 2.0 features an integrated Trail Doc bike stand so you can make repairs to your bike if needed. The 1.25 to 2 inch hitch adapter is not included with the 1.25 inch model, but it can be ordered directly from Kuat.

This page no longer shows the 2 inch hitch option, only the 1.25 inch. It was showing this just a couple hours ago when I was in the Kennewick store.

Asked by: Ronn60
Unfortunately, the 2 inch hitch has recently sold out. As of May 2017, we do not know when this will become available again.

Do you stock the NV Base 2.0 for a 2inch receiver? I know you can buy the adapter for the 1.25inch but I want the 2.0 so I can buy the add on. 

Asked by: burnan
​As of April 2017, we do stock the NV Base 2.0 in a 2 inch receiver. All available sizes are shown on our product page.
