Kuat Racks



Bike Owners!

Okay, Let's Get Straight To The Point... Here's 5 Clear Benefits Our Racks Provide For You:

  • Enjoy the exciting thrill of exploring new trails and destinations in your bike journey

  • Experience a hassle-free solution to transport your family's bikes without disassembling them or compromising space inside your vehicle.

  • Our secure mounting & specialized design provides ultimate damage prevention of both your bike and car. Allowing a safe and secure transport  

  • Unlock ultimate freedom & flexibility: As a bike owner biking the same  mundane area can get boring and blan Take your bike anywhere your car can go... Going on a family vacation? Your family bikes tag along with ease.

  • Instantly avoid any mud, grease, and scratches on your vehicle's interior from keeping your bike on the rack instead of put on the inside of your car.


In 2008, we set out to rethink the hitch rack from the ground up. We tinkered, we engineered, we evolved. The final creation could be the best way to transport bikes on your car. Ever.

When we started designing this hitch rack, we knew we wanted bike hauling with no contact on the frame, integrated LED taillights, adjustable tire chock slides for all bike sizes and tires, and the most durable materials and coatings. All things we knew we wanted in a hitch rack but had never seen together in one.

Until now. Meet the Piston® Pro X hitch rack. This bike rack is all metal and can safely transport bikes and electric bikes weighing up to 67 lbs. per tray. With just one tap the pneumatic arms open wide, grab your bike tire perfectly, with no contact with the frame.

And we went there with Kashima coating. Beautiful and amazingly durable, it surely makes bells and whistles jealous.

Whether you’re rolling on smallish wheels or beefy tires, you won’t need any adapters or tools to make them fit. Just squeeze and slide the adjustable wheel chocks to hold 18”-29” tires.

Plus, our brightest idea yet. The integrated LED taillights on this hitch rack. They synchronize seamlessly with your car, truck, SUV, or RV, providing enhanced rear visibility and on-road safety.

When it comes to security, the hitch lock keeps the bike rack secured so no one can slide it out when you’re not looking, and the semi-integrated 12mm cable lock makes sure your bike stays locked up tight while looking tight.

These and many other features culminate in a bike rack designed, built, and tested to push the envelope and provide you with unparalleled ease of use, peace of mind, and lasting value.

2 Key Differences Between Piston Pro & Piston Pro X

  1. The Kashima Coating On Forks: Increases the longevity of the piston of the bike rack.

    - Aka: You'll be able to use your bike rack longer and eliminate a potential defect from ware and tear

  2. Integrated Brake Light / Turning Signal Lighting: When you hit your brakes or turn on your turning signal it shows on the back of your rack as well. Increasing your safety and protection from a car hitting you from behind

    - Aka: Protecting your bike, your bike rack, your car, and your life from a random stranger hitting the back of your car if you didn't have this LED Lighting System.
