Brand Spotlight: Thule

Whether you're taking your bike down the street or packing for a cross-country trip, it's important that you can effectively transport your gear. Vehicle roof rack and roof box brand, Thule (pronounced tool-lee), has been solving the problem of transporting gear since 1942. That’s a lot of time to perfect your craft, and Thule has gotten pretty close to doing this - as suggested by their consistent product awards and establishment as the world’s top name in personal vehicle cargo accessories.

When it was founded in Sweden by the Thulin family, their first product was actually a trap for catching fish. Needless to say, they don’t offer that product anymore and we’re thankful that they developed a vehicle focus in the 1960s, when they released their first roof rack. The rest is history as they say, and Thule has been letting drivers easily haul everything from mountain bikes to Thule’s own line of luggage with the quality and style of Thule roof racks and mountable storage pods.

Thule’s commitment to quality and function makes it a product that fits right in with other APN products and brands. We have Thule products at discount prices, so now that you know a bit more about this great brand, shop APN for Thule bike racks, roof racks, bumper carriers, and more great products that get you and your gear where you need to go.
