You just dropped 5k on your new whip, better keep it secure on your trip to Moab.

If you've ever had the misfortune of picking up pieces of your $5000 steed off the highway, then you might want to consider the Kuat Vagabond X-2 Bike Cargo Rack for your next trip. Built from durable steel with a flat black powder finish, the Vagabond will match anything you drive. The Vagabond incorporates a grid basket with fork mounts and wheel trays, which basically kills two birds with one stone. Go ahead and toss your duffle bags of gear and a couple bikes on the roof and away you go. Just make sure to tie them down first.

  • Grid basket has multiple tie-down points for securing gear
  • Two integrated skewer mounts allow bikes to be mounted alongside cargo
  • Integrated cable lock keeps gear secure
  • Wind visor doubles as a sticker board
  • Total weight: 26lb
  • Weight capacity: 160lb total cargo, 40lb per bike

  • 2 integrated skewer mounts
  • Multiple tie-downs
  • Integrated cable lock

"X" Gonna Give it to Ya!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Go I got this as I needed to carry more stuff with me on road trips when taking road trips with the dogs. It was quite easy to put together, even by myself. Was even able to put it on top of my Subaru Crosstrek with ease as well. Certainly does the job of putting dirty stuff in the cargo basket instead of the car. The main reason I got this basket out of all the other ones on the market is the two bike fork mounts. Better than all of the other ones I have seen on the market.

What the content for this is missing is that it is not an intergrated cable lock. Two of the mounting clamps for the crossbars come with included lock cores to keep it secure. The other tricky part is that although it has two bike fork mounts, long wheelbase bikes may not fit. They give you two straps to secure the rear wheel to the basket. Have not tried this yet as my Kurt Sherpa hitch rack is my go to for bikes but this option is good in case you want to shuttle more than just one friend.

Would I buy this again? Definitely as it does it's job that it is intended for. If you want to get something to carry bike, get proper roof trays for the job. It is a nice add on to have the fork mounts than to not have them. If you got any more questions about this or any other racks we carry please feel free to reach out to me.

Best Cargo Basket on the market

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is hands down the best cargo basket on the market. It is very durable just like all of kuats racks, locks to the crossbars, and has built in skewer bike mounts. The best all in one basket on the market

Kuat Vagabond X(2)

    This basket is beautiful. even my wife says it looks good (and she generally doesn't comment). so glad I made the purchase. if this is anything like previous kuat products i've owned i'll be in good shape. thanks kuat and thanks competitive cyclist for the great deal.

    Kuat Vagabond X(2)

    Hey, I also have a 2015 Outback and am looking to get the Vagabond X. One review from another site said that it took some modifying (without giving examples) to mount the rack to the 2015's factory bars. How did it go for you with the '15 OB pictured? Thanks, Tim

    The newest basket rack from Kuat is amazing! 2 built in skewer mounts for 9MM, integrated cable locks to secure bikes or gear, real copper decals and matches with ANY vehicle to look awesome! You can even add another 21"with the Xtender accessory. Best basket on the market.
