Seen at Eurobike: Thule’s Pack ‘n Pedal

That’s one loaded up whip

Thule launched Pack ‘n Pedal today. That’s a modular platform that includes a new handlebar mount with various accessories and high-end panniers with racks from their recent acquisition Freeload. Inside the panniers are hardshell zones to protect electronics and the bags are attached with magnets.

magnets, how they work?

Thule’s new handlebar mount

To market the new line, Thule made a series of six documentaries about cyclists called, “How I Roll.”


Thule committing that level of budget, industrial design, and marketing to a new line is a strong indication of the continued growth of cycling and Thule’s belief in the bike. Very interested by Pack ‘n Pedal, we’ve requested samples and should have the bags by Interbike.

Excellent. I know the Freeload guys have been working very very hard all this year on this stuff. Looks great - and with Thule support and massive distribution network it should be a winner.

Agreed, thought some bike tourists noted in another thread on Facebook that they panniers sit too high. I guess that’s because they’re using magnets to attach them and couldn’t put them on the fork for whatever reason.
