Upcoming cycling race? Thule’s Top 6 cycling essentials to get you to the finish

Between road, mountain and gravel cycle racing – and not discounting triathlons, of course – there is a cycle race happening just about every weekend. Jamie Owen, marketing manager for Thule SA explains, “there is a range of accessories and cycling essentials to help with every aspect of your cycling. Here are our teams top picks to help you on the big day."

Hydration Backpacks


The key to a great race is staying well hydrated. Whether it’s a road or mountain race a hydration backpack is essential, especially if it’s going to be a long race. Choose a lightweight hydration backpack that offers maximum comfort and ease of use during cycling. The Thule Vital collection of lightweight hydration backpacks features smart solutions such as a hands-free ReTrakt magnetic hose return system and convenient jersey-style pockets for quick access to nutrition, clothing or tools without having to remove the pack.

Bike Carriers and Racks


With a car bike rack, you can take your bike anywhere you want – quickly, easily and safely. The new and improved Thule Euroway G2 3 Bike Carrier is compact and lightweight and ideal for everyday use (for 3 bikes). It’s easy to mount and adjust, thanks to the detachable bike arms and folds flat easily for simple storage. It also tilts to provide boot access when bikes are mounted. There are pump buckles with long wheel straps for easy fastening of wheels and you can lock the carrier (and the bikes into position) on the toolbar, as locks are included too.

Bike Travel Cases


When you’re travelling from race to race a dependable bike travel case means you can also travel with peace of mind. With a choice of hard or soft cases, you and your bike can arrive at your destination ready to go. Look for rugged protection on the outside and smart, secure storage on the inside and look out for cases that have rollers for easy handling and navigation when you’re on the go. Thule’s sleek and durable bike travel cases are designed, built and tested to withstand the stress and strain of modern travel.

By golly Thule certainly did a very poor job to explain that that totally excessive camera mount, is actually not a camera mount alone and will also enable you to mount a carry bag to your handlebars, like below:

doesnt help that the bike bags weigh 5-7kgs. once the bike is in, its pretty tough keeping the weigh in at the airport below 15kgs. Im a huge fan of their backpacks, really well made.
