SEYMOUR, Conn. (BRAIN) — Thule, which launched its first hydration pack line last year, has added two new collections for 2019. The new Thule Rail is designed for aggressive trail riding and enduro racing, while the Thule UpTake is for biking, hiking or skiing. Both collections include a variety of sizes and colors and will be available at retail in February, 2019.

The Rail hydration packs have a fit system that wraps the torso to eliminate bouncing and movement when jumping or cornering on rough trails. They include the ReTrakt magnetic hose return. The included 2.5 liter HydraPak reservoir features a locking valve and a slide closure to simplify cleaning. Armor, helmets or detachable chin bars can be attached with quick-access lash points. The pack allows access to jersey pockets. Interior zippered pockets provide a safe place to store a phone, keys or other small accessories. The pack comes in 8-liter and 10-liter models. A third model, Thule Rail 12L Pro, comes equipped with a lightweight, removable Koroyd spine protector.
