Team Küat is comprised of avid cyclists, outdoor enthusiasts, and fine ale connoisseurs. This motley crew of dreamers and schemers pool together their diverse talents and interests to bring you sharp design, quality products, and awesome customer service.
In 2005, Luke Kuschmeader and his then partner, Brian Atkinson, developed the Küat concept after a long day on the trails. They’d been stalled by a clumsy, heavy bike rack that was a struggle to dismount from the vehicle, and they wondered if there wasn’t a better way to transport their bikes to and from the trails. A self-starter, Luke turned wonder into solution, and the prototype for the Alpha – a rack that was lighter, easier to use, and better looking than existing products on the market – was born, challenging the status quo in the bike rack industry.
While Küat has since grown into a robust team of industry experts, the curiosity and passion that sparked that initial design has remained central to Küat’s philosophy. This machine is fueled by bright ideas and heated debates to consistently deliver innovative solutions.
