  • Never leave home without vital gear again.
  • The bike duffel has a dedicated place for everything.
  • Thule has a reputation for great quality products.

Shoes, gloves, helmet, glasses, clothing, nutrition and spare parts are all necessary to make riding your bike is safe and enjoyable. 

One of the issues is managing gear and accessories, especially when you start doing events or stage races. 

Keeping your gear organised is paramount to ensure that you have everything you need when you arrive at the start chute or trailhead. There are few things in cycling, more annoying, than realising five minutes before ride starts that your GPS or water bottles are still on the kitchen counter at home.

Swedish bike rack and luggage manufacturer, Thule, has an answer to this. The Thule RoundTrip Bike Duffel is a purpose built gear bag for cyclists, allowing convenient stowage for wearables and accessories.

Lots of capacity and compartments 

With 55-litres of space it can hold a week’s worth of cycling gear, accessories, corresponding outfits and foul weather kit. A multitude of individual cell pockets make it perfect for single or multi-day cycling adventures.

The structure of the bag allows visibility and efficient access to all compartments and a wide opening. Thule’s design eliminates the process of having to unpack the entire bag when you are looking for something. 

Dedicated compartments can house your shoes and helmet while the lid pocket is ideal for post-ride clothing. Additional exterior pockets feature mesh dividers and elastic loops are ideal for securing nutrition, spare parts and delicate items like your GPS and action camera.

Generously added handles have been paced on the top, left and right sides of the bag. A cross body strap makes riding with this Thule bag quite easy, ideal for moving between your car and home or accommodation in the race village.

Thule is well renowned for producing high quality products and their luggage is no different. The pricing might be slightly on the expensive side (R3499), but in our experience Thule products will outlast those of most competitors.
