Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Toyota C-HR, we’re going to be test fitting Kuat’s Transfer Two Bike Platform Rack, part number T-S-0-2-G. This a premium level bike rack, packed full of a bunch of features. One of the nice things about the bike rack is that it has the ability to tilt away, and it has a foot lever to do so. You simply press down the lever, and you can just lower it down. What’s great about being able to tilt it down is you can access the items in your trunk without having to take your bikes off. Now we can access all our items from our camping gear to our riding equipment.

When you’re ready to lift it back up, it just clicks right into place.Your bike is held into place in the two platforms, at the bottom, for each wheel, and clamps on the wheel in the front, with the arm, here. This provides a no-frame contact mount, which is great if you have a carbon fiber bike. You don’t have to worry about any of those vibrations going down the road, transferring to your frame. The back wheel is held into place by a strap, here. This strap just pulls down and ratchets into place.

When you’re ready to take your bike off, you just release the strap, support your bike, press in on the release lever, here. You can lift up the arm, place it forward, take your bike off, and fold your arm back over.From the ground to the lowest point on our bike rack, at the back, it’s going to measure about 19 inches. From the bumper to the furthest point, it’s going to measure about 33 inches. And from the bumper to the closest point, it’s going to measure about four, and a half inches. Now, if you’re not using your bike rack, but you want to leave it on.

You can place it in the upright storage position by pressing down on the lever, and just lifting it up, until it snaps into place. Now, our lowest point, at the back, is going to be about 15 inches. Our furthest point from our bumper is going to be about 10, and a half inches, and our closest point is going to be about four, and a half inches.It’s held into place with the included anti-rattle bolt that keeps it nice and secure in the hitch and will also help stabilize your bikes that are loaded onto it. It will work with both the one, and a quarter inch shank and has an included adapter that can increase it to a two-inch shank. For additional security, you can get a locking system for your rack with part number P-T-S-C-L-K-1-2.

This will include a lock, for your anti-rattle bolt, to ensure that your bike rack stays secured to your hitch. The lock has a dust cap on it to keep out any dirt and debris, so it would be a long-lasting fully functional system, where the key won’t corrode up. You’ll receive locks for both arms that you can use to wrap around your bike, on its frame, come back and lock into itself, keeping your bike secure to your rack.That completes our test fit of the Kuat’s Transfer Two-Bike Platform Rack on our 2018 Toyota C-HR.Here, on our test course, we’ll start by going through the slalom. This is going to show us the side-to-side action. This simulates turning corners or evasively maneuvering. Once we get to the alternating speed bumps, we’ll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb, or a pothole, or driving over uneven pavement. Once we get to the full speed bumps, we’ll see the up and down action. This will be just like driving in and out of a parking lot, parking garage, or driveway.
