Wheels Up Thule Road Trip

Entrust your bicycle to cardboard and bubble wrap on your next overseas trip and your precious cargo could arrive at the other end looking like an Alex Calder sculpture. Hey, ship happens. Cue the rackmeisters at Thule, who have brilliantly applied their gear-conveyance expertise to the question of—God bless 'em—luggage. The company's new Road Trip offers a hard polyethylene shell and squishy foam innards to shield your disassembled bike from harm and comes with nylon bags to organize clipless shoes, tools, and skewers. There's even a wrap for your chain. Included roller wheels expedite concourse dashes, and if you spring for the optional mounting kit ($35), you can even throw your fully packed Road Trip up on your car's roof rack—deleting one more hassle in the home-to-airport logistics loop.
