Sleek looking functionI've used Thule products for years but opted for the Kuat rack because of how it looks and because it weighs significantly less. So far, it works great though it took a few trips to trust the flex we noticed while driving. I was slightly intimidated by all the pieces I had to assemble but found the instructions and illustrations true to form and easy to follow (no missing steps or pieces). They even send along the tools needed for assembly. A nice bonus! We haven't used the cable lock yet but suspect we will need a longer one to really secure two bikes.

Ultra lightweight for a quality finished rack. simple and elagant? If a rack can be that this is.Had one of these for years, and it still looks new. Aluminum body makes it pretty much rust proof and the Ultralight weight makes it really easy to take on and off the car Hitch mount. Easy for the Mrs as well. ,, Simplifies the loading, lifting of bikes onto the car. No geometrical designs, or puzzle solving skills needed to get the bikes on the rack. Takes literally seconds to load and unload. Comes with a cable lock to help secure.

Great rack holds bike firmly in place. Putting bikes on and taking them off is a breeze.Product was packaged well so no damage during shipping, that's always a plus. After opening, I sorted all parts against the assembly instructions and all were accounted for, double plus. Thought is was really great they inclued the tools you need for assembly in the parts bag. Directions are well written and easey to follow, complete with pictures which helped a bunch. It took about an hour to put the rack together and ready to slide in the hitch. Then came my first and only problem, had a heck of a time getting the lock pin through the hitch holes. This would have been easier with a second person to pull up on the rack too help line up the holes for the pin to pass through, but once in and a few turns of the knob the rack is firmly in place. Putting the bikes on and taking them off is a breeze. Looking forward to many great trips with my Kuat Sherpa!

Does this come with a hitch lock or do I need to purchase that separately?
Asked by: Carrie
An external cable lock and locking hitch pin are included with the Sherpa. I hope this helps.
