    Best rack made period. Looks great. Will buy extension to add two more bikes

    Pros
    Hold bike solidly. Set em and forget em. Load and latch 2 bikes in 30 seconds! Great looking rack. Folds up easily.

    Cons
    Cable could be a tad longer but no biggie. It always fits my needs.

    Reviewing Kuat NV Core:
    *****

    This is the best bike rack IMHO. This rack holds two bikes but I have four people and bikes, So we had to get the extension. Very well built. I like all the locking features. The rack came with a hitch lock and bike locks. I have used the locks a lot.

    Pros
    Holds bikes with out damaging them. Very secure rack.

    I have been a loyal Thule customer for year and have had most of their products for holding bikes and skis. The Kuat NV is definitely worth the extra money. It now comes in an all black version, which looks much better.

    Pros
    The Kuat NV is a solid rack. It does a great job holding the bikes firmly in place and doesn't bounce around compared to other brands. Only rack that also includes a work stand, very nice to have. Included is a built in cable lock system for the bikes as well as a lock to keep the rack from being removed from the hitch.

    Cons
    The cable for locking the bikes could be a bit longer. I have a hard time getting the two ends to meet sometimes.

    Reviewing Kuat NV Core:
    *****

    I didn't need the extras of the NV, and I like the way the core has the up-curve of the hitch tongue. The other Kuat racks may all be like this now, but when looked it did not seem this way. I was torn between this and the Sherpa. I saved a few bucks, but put it back into the lock set... Was that dumb? I don't know. I liked the added actual support the Core provided with the longer platform.

    I have a driveway that has a mean slope hear the curb, and other racks bottomed out ( this is on a 2011 Outback). The Kuat Core does not! Big plus for me. Bikes go on and off in seconds, the rack folds nicely, and the added lock kits will suffice for 'basic' security. I was hesitant to spend ~400 for this, but I am happy I did. I guess that says it all.

    Pros
    Easy to load bikes
    Ground clearance (see review)
    Build quality

    Cons
    Locks are extra
    You do have to assemble it

    Good rack and works very well, without no noise when driving on bumpy roads. Securely supports bikes without swaying.

    Pros
    Great looks, tilt feature so you can get into the trunk without removing the bikes. Comes with bike repair stand built in.

    Cons
    Rear straps could be more like a Cycle-On.
