Seymour, Conn., July 2, 2018 –The Thule Rail and Thule UpTake collections will be the newest additions to this growing category. Thule’s new breadth of product will give consumers a wider selection of hydration packs specific to their passion. Thule Rail and Thule UpTake will be available in February, 2019.    

Thule Rail hydration packs are designed for the downhill and enduro rider. The secure-fit design wraps the torso and eliminates bounce or movement when jumping or railing corners for unsurpassed control, comfort and safety while descending rough trails. Stay hydrated without slowing down thanks to the hands-free ReTrakt magnetic hose return. The included 2.5L HydraPak reservoir features a locking valve to prevent leaks and slide closure to simplify cleaning. Easily attach and retrieve armor, helmet or detachable chin bar with quick-access lash points. Lower-back jersey pockets provide access to nutrition, a tool or a phone without removing the pack, or having to stop. You will have plenty of cargo storage with Thule Rail 8L or Thule Rail 12L to carry extra food, clothing and tools with minimal bulk in the main compartment. Interior zippered pockets provide a safe place to store a phone, keys or other small accessories. A third model, Thule Rail 12L Pro comes equipped with a lightweight, removable Koroyd spine protector to help reduce impact on your back.

Thule UpTake is an all-around, versatile hydration pack ready for any
excursion. Consistent throughout all of Thule’s hydration packs, the
integrated magnetic ReTrakt hose system allows for hands free
hydration and focus on the trail. The included 2.5L Hydrapak reservoir
features a locking valve to prevent leaks and slide closure for easy
cleaning. With sleek design aesthetics, organizational pockets, and
optimal storage, the Thule UpTake is perfect for biking, hiking or
hitting the slopes. Convenient side pockets offer quick access to
smaller items, while dedicated internal pockets are perfect for tools
and extra layers. Thule UpTake 4L is the most compact model of the
collection, offering a low-profile design with plenty of organization and storage. Lightweight materials and mesh back panel keep you comfortable in all temperatures. Thule UpTake 8L includes all the premium features of the 4L model with extra comfort, like articulating shoulder straps and perforated foam back panel to keep you cool and comfortable on any excursion. An integrated waist strap provides extra stability as well. The Thule UpTake 12L model offers expandable cargo storage using an exterior compression panel that expands to fit a jacket or gloves for changing weather. 

Rounding out the Thule UpTake collection is a youth specific hydration pack designed to fit younger riders with smaller torsos, ages 8-12. The Thule UpTake 6L Youth pack includes the ReTrakt magnetic hose return along with a 1.75L Hydrapak reservoir. The low-profile design with 6L of cargo storage provides just the right amount of packing space for extra layers and other small items.
