Küat Pivot

If you’ve ever had a hitch-mounted rack, you know that it can make #vanlife difficult. You put your bikes on the rack. Then you realize you need something from the back of the van, but the rack is blocking access to the rear doors. You either give up or climb through the van to retrieve the necessary item. None of this is especially convenient. Küat has designed the Pivot, which allows your bike rack, loaded with up to four bikes, to swing 90-degrees. The Pivot works with 2-inch hitches and supports up to 250 pounds. Swing your bikes out of the way and get your stuff out of the van or chill on your tailgate with a beer. Available this summer for $298.
