Küat has just updated its most popular (and most affordable) tray-style hitch rack, the Transfer. The new Transfer V2 will continue to arrive in 1, 2 and 3-bike configurations, with improved modular add-on ability for all three, letting it max out with 4 bikes on board.

The big changes include fatter tire clearance, smaller wheel compatibility, and a wider base to accommodate longer bikes. Four models help it fit any car and hitch size, too…

  1. This is a nice upgrade. I’ve been pleased with the value of my original model, but leaving it on my car for weeks at a time in Vermont winters is taking its toll. For a small increase over the V1, they’ve added several new or improved features. I think I know what I’ll be getting next spring.
