From bike boxes to car racks and backpacks, top Swedish firm Thule (pronounced “too-lee” and not “thool”) has long had a storied rep for creating well-crafted, durable and ingenious storage solutions.
The above is why we’ve teamed up with Hillerstorp’s finest to offer one lucky Cycling Plus subscriber a RoundTrip bag for their riding adventures in 2023, and years to come.
The RoundTrip is a cycling-specific gear bag for dedicated riders, with a seemingly limitless array of compartments to house clothing, tech and accessories from one ride to the next. In fact, it feels like the designers at Thule have thought of everything to make your cycling trips run smoothly.
Smart storage solutions include the shoe compartment lined with tarpaulin for easy cleaning and a lid pocket for sweaty post-ride clothing. The multiple sections are brightly coloured to aid visibility, while being easy to access thanks to the bag structure and wide openings.
Travelling to a multi-day event? This bag really comes into its own for helping you find what you need in a flash, when organisation is key and fatigue has set in. There’ll be no scrabbling blindly for a pair of socks in the bottom of a cavernous bag.
Amongst the many sections of the RoundTrip holdall, there’s a helmet area for road or trail lids, a front pocket for nutrition, tools and event supplies, and an exterior zipped pocket for GPS computers, phones and wallets. With a capacity of 55 litres (bag dimensions are 67 x 36 x 30cm), it’ll house three to five days of road or gravel cycling gear, with both a removable shoulder strap and carry handles to help you carry it in the way that best suits you and the terrain.
