The latest in technical backpacks, bike, water-sport and cargo carriers, as well as a new line of retractable awnings, are just a few of the new products being launched at this year’s Outdoor Retailer Summer Market later this month from Thule. All-new bike, water-sport, and cargo carriers expand upon the brand’s core categories Thule is broadening its core categories even more this season, introducing several new bike carriers for your vehicle’s roof, hitch and tailgate.
