Thule's Round Trip Pro is a quality soft shell bike travel case with an integrated bike assembly stand. This makes traveling with your bike easier than ever. The quality work stand means it is a pleasure to work on your bike when traveling. Assembly, adjustments, cleaning and pre-packing can be done much more easily with the aid of a work stand which is especially nice when your are already tired from travel.
Well located wheels and handles make rushing through airports with a packed bike a breeze. The base of the work stand also ingeniously doubles as the base of the travel case to secure your bike in place. The bike is held in place very solidly at the bottom bracket and fork. Thule also generously includes 15 and 20mm thru axle adapters to fit virtually any bike road or mountain. The legs and cradle snap into place in only a few seconds.
The Round Trip Pro is a soft case which delivers a couple big advantages. Without a bike the Round Trip Pro can fold up a bit to fit in a sub-compact car or a dinky Euro-style hotel room. It also takes up less space for storage when not in use. Weight is reduced from a fully rigid case to only 22 pounds. This means even if your bike is not the lightest it is still plausible to keep it under the 50 pound limit that some airlines impose. There are hard plastic side panels to protect the bike as well as wheel bags to assist in protection and organization.
