Kuat The NV Bike Rack Review
Roadcycling.com reviews the Küat The NV Bike Rack.
passed over when Kuat developed the NV. I'm usually concerned about getting my bike ripped off but not to worry. The locking cable is built in so you never have to wonder where you left it. Another great feature is the cable is retractable which keeps it out of the way when it is not in use. It is magnetically held in place. To top it off, the NV also has a locking hitch pin along with 2 sets of keys.
Perhaps the nicest surprise on the return trip was when we stopped for groceries. The back seat was filled with a bunch of junk, so how the heck was I going to get into the back of the SUV without taking off the bikes? The rack center has a quick release function that allowed me to tilt it back (along with the two bikes) giving me access to the rear. When I got home, I started to remove the NV like I had to do with my old rack because it stuck out too far. Instead, I folded it up and found it takes up very little space. It was less work for me and remains on the car to this day.
The unique adaptations like the sturdy construction, built in repair clamp and the retractable anti-theft cable are great features. The option to access the rear of the SUV while the bikes stay on the rack makes it indispensable. It is obvious that a great deal of thought and engineering went into this product. The Kuat NV is by far the most convenient, attractive and easy to load bike carrier I have ever used.
