Kuat Switch 6 Ski Carrier

The Kuat Switch 6 lets you carry 6 pairs of large skis or 4 snowboards on your vehicle's roof rack. It's easy to remove, but with the foldable design you may want to leave it on your vehicle all season long. It also includes locks to secure your gear to the Switch.


Folding Design

Kuat Switch Folding Design

Unlike traditional ski carriers, the Kuat Switch can be folded down when you aren't carrying skis or snowboards to reduce wind noise and drag. Simply pull the release lever on each holder and lower them into position.


Large Push Buttons

Kuat Switch Push Button Access

The carrier has oversized push buttons on the end caps that let you quickly open the arms to access gear. Simply push up on each tab to open the cradle and load your gear.


Flexible Rubber Blades

Kuat Switch Rubber Blades

The Switch holds your gear between a pair of rubber blades. They grip your gear tight to keep it in place, but are flexible enough to prevent scratches and scuffs durings transport.


Security for Your Skis

Kuat Switch One Key Security

The Switch comes equipped with built-in locks to deter theft of your gear. The arms lock in 2 positions to secure your skis to the carrier. They lock fully closed to accommodate thin skis and they lock slighly more open to accommodate thicker snowboards. Includes 2 keys.


Easy Tool-Free Installation

Kuat Switch Flip Universal Mounting

The carrier clamps to most crossbars with stainless steel straps. Simply run a strap beneath the crossbar and hook it into the bracket on the opposite side of the mount. Then, use the included Allen key to tighten the straps in place.The straps have a protective rubber coating to protect your crossbars from scratches and scuffs.

Arrived fast, easy to install on my 2021 Toyota Rav4 Limited. Love that it folds down when not in use. Haven't been to the mountain yet but looking forward to putting it to use. Save the box for storage - came with nice foam ends to protect it.

Review from a similar Switch 4 in Ski and Snowboard Racks


This rack is a 5 star no brainer. Its gone through 2 seasons of getting used 7 days a week. -15 degrees to road salt to kids slapping it open, it has not malfunctioned once. Rarely used, but the fold down feature definitely reduces noise, and looks good too. The bar mount clings to any shape bar and is so easy, it takes less than a minute to remove for a skinless road trip.

Review from a similar Switch 4 in Ski and Snowboard Racks


Item thoroughly described and matched perfectly upon arrival. The universal mounts hug perfectly and easily around aero bars. My favorite is it folds down as described when not in use which creates a much more aero profile until next use. Fast shipping!

See what our Experts say about this Kuat Ski and Snowboard Racks

  • Pad Dimension of Kuat Switch Ski Carrier # KU44FR

  • Will the Kuat Switch Ski and Snowboard Carrier Fit the Sherpa The Crestone Roof Rack
    I looked up the crossbar dimensions of the Sherpa The Crestone Roof Rack and saw that they are 1" x 2" so the Kuat Switch 6 Ski and Snowboard Carrier part # KU44FR will work well. There are locks which secure the skis to the carrier. The carrier is secured to the rack but there are no locks, it instead requires a security allen key which is not something most people are going to have so it will be just as secure as the skis inside the carrier.

  • Can Kuat Snowboard And Ski Carrier KU44FR Hold Fishing Rods?
    The Kuat Switch 6 Ski and Snowboard Carrier # KU44FR would probably be able to handle your fishing rods. This carrier can handle thicknesses up to about 1-1/4 inches so you can compare that to your rods. I do see some customer reviews stating that it worked well for their fishing rods so you should be fine.

  • Will The Kuat Switch 6 Ski and Snowboard Carrier Fit Roof Rack On 2020 Subaru Outback?
    The Kuat Switch 6 Ski and Snowboard Carrier # KU44FR has been confirmed to fit the standard factory roof rack for the Subaru Outback. So if your 2020 roof rack is the same style as seen in the attached demonstration video then it will fit; but since you have the limited trim level you may have a different roof rack setup. I recommend measuring the width of your crossbars to verify compatibility. If the crossbars are less than 4-1/4" wide then this carrier will fit.

  • Fitment of Kuat Switch 6 Ski and Snowboard Carrier with Baja Roof Rack

  • Can Switch 6 Ski and Snowboard Carrier Fit 4 Pairs of Skis and 1 Snowboard
    Yes, we had the chance to load 3 pairs of skis and one board on the Kuat Switch carrier part # KU44FR and we found that there was room for an additional pair of skis like what you can see in the attached picture link on this page.

  • Mounting Compatibility of Kuat Switch Ski and Snowboard Carrier with Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform
    The Pioneer platforms can absolutely use the Kuat Switch 6 Ski and Snowboard Carrier - 6 Pairs of Skis or 4 Boards # KU44FR. You will simply need the Rhino-Rack Accessory Bars for Pioneer Platform Rack - 48" Long - Aero Bars - Qty 2 # RR43137B to give you the crossbars to connect to. Adding these crossbars allows you to use most roof mounted accessories.

  • Low-Profile Ski and Snowboard Carrier Options from Kuat
    The T-Channel Mount Kit for the Kuat Grip, part # GRDMK, is not compatible with the Kuat Switch, part # KU44FR. The swivel of the Switch make it so it cannot be replaced. I've linked to a video review of this carrier for you to see how it works. The width of the Switch without the bracket is 4-3/4". If you decided to go with the Kuat Grip, part # GRR4B, and also use the T-Channel Kit, then yes, at minimum the smallest spacer would have to be used.

  • Roof Rack For 2017 Lexus IS 300 For Ski & Snowboard Carrier
    To carry snowboards on your 2017 Lexus IS 300, you will need a roof rack, as there isn't a standalone carrier just for a '17 IS 300. This will work for the 4-door sedan models, so if that's what your 2017 Lexus IS 300 is, I recommend a roof rack from Rhino-Rack: - Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Silver # RRVA118S-2 or Black # RRVA118B-2 - Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA - Custom DK Fit Kit # DK380 The reason I like Rhino-Rack the best for a roof rack is because it is the best...
