The Kuat NV 2.0 Base 1.25" is loaded with features that make it one of the most equipped platform racks on the market. The NV Base 2.0 features Kuats foot lever pivot release, adjustable cradles for increased bike fit, integrated cable locks, a hand-tight cam system, and a ballistic black powder coat that will stand up to years of abuse.
Carries nearly any bike
Because bikes are held by the front wheel, nearly any bike will work on the NV Base 2.0. Wheels sized 24" to 29" in diameter work directly in the rack, while bikes sized 20" to 24" work using an adapter that clamps around the front wheel hook and acts as a spacer. If you need to carry a fat tire bike, the Kuat APBK Phat Bike Kit
(sold separately) extends the length of the rear wheel strap and adds an additional velcro safety strap for the front wheel to safely carry tires up to 4.8". Wheelbases up to 48" are supported.
Folds with easy pivoting lever
The NV Base 2.0 1.25" includes a pivot lever to lower and drop the rack, making it much easier to fold the rack down and access the rear hatch or trunk of your vehicle. There is no more need to reach under the rack to release the cam handle like on previous versions of the rack.
A braided steel cable lock slides out of each bike tray and locks back to itself, securing each bicycle to the rack. An included locking hitch pin secures the Kuat NV 2.0 Base rack to your vehicle's hitch receiver. It gets tensioned into the hitch receiver using a hand tightened hitch cam system, which reduces wobble and play.
