Thule RoundTrip Pro Bike Case
Bike travel cases are an area that no one has excelled in yet, until Thule came along with their RoundTrip Pro Bike Case. Thule seem to have analysed all the flaws in existing travel cases, and eliminated them from their offering that will accept road, mountain and cyclocross bikes up a 46" / 116.8 cm wheelbase.
This case incorporates a workstand which is unbelievably useful. Use it for packing up or reassembling your bike at either end to take the hassle out of trying to balance your bike whilst you wrap it in bubble wrap. It would also function perfectly as your everyday home workstand. In transit, it is used to secure the bike as well as adding a highly protective base to the case. Fantastically, Thule include the adapters so that you can use it with both 15mm and 20mm axles as well.
One of the greatest issues with travel cases has been storing such a bulky item in between trips. Not with the RoundTrip Pro though as the folding side panels and collapsable frame allow it to pack down into a compact suitcase size (see the photos above). This does not compromise protection when assembled as the aluminium Click-Rail frame provides ample rigidity to safely transport your pride and joy.
Further protection comes from the included nylon wheel bags that will prevent these rattling against other parts and potentially causing damage. These can also be used for race days when you do not have to travel as far. Integrated handles and wheels make travelling with this case a breeze and allow you to arrive feeling fresh and ready to ride.
Please see the video below to further appreciate the ingenuity of this travel case, as well as getting some useful tips on how to pack your bike.
