For someone unfamiliar with the culture of Thule, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Thule helps you transport what you care for safely, easily, and in style so you are free to live your active life. We believe in the value of an active life – whether you’re in the city or the great outdoors. We venture outside for our own health and happiness as human beings and for the respect and care we then give to the world around us.
What’s the background of the company? When did it start? How has it evolved over time?
Thule was established in Sweden in 1942. And ever since then, we’ve made it our business to bring you closer to the world and your passion for life. Until about 10 years ago, the Thule brand was known only for roof top cargo boxes, bike racks, snow-sport carriers and water-sport carriers. Today, we are seen as a true active lifestyle brand offering industry-leading products in our carriers and racks category, as well as luggage and bags, protective cases for your laptop and tablet, and even child carriers for the active parent. We are an international group of people united by our own passion for helping active families and outdoor enthusiasts.
What are the most popular and/or newest products from Thule?
The Thule Urban Glide and Thule Glide sport strollers have been winning over consumers, the media, and even professional runners since they hit the market. Just a few months ago, professional distance runner, Calum Neff, set the Guinness World Record by pushing his daughter in a half marathon, and he did it with a Thule Glide!
What sets Thule apart from other stroller companies?
Safety and security are two of the most important qualities of the Thule brand. We subject our products, as well as our competitor’s products, to extreme testing. From real world usage to accelerated wear tests in our Thule Test Center, we conduct tests that include extreme temperature exposures, UV and salt water exposure, and impact tests. Additionally, the Thule brand focuses on easy-to-use, smart solutions for the user, so every feature is intuitive and designed with the user in mind.
What can parents expect to see from Thule at the New York Baby Show?
We will be showcasing our award-winning Thule Urban Glide and Thule Glide jogging strollers, as well as our feature rich Thule Sapling line of child carrying backpacks and Thule RideAlong line of bike seats.
