From The Bike To The Plane: Wheelrider Is A Bike-Mounted Carry-On Suitcase

Wheelrider-Carry-on-Motorcycle-Top-Case-Featured-image-672x372

You go everywhere on two wheels… except maybe to the airport. For that, you bow down to reality, and stash your suitcase in the trunk of a car and get a ride. But if you get the Wheelrider, you don’t have to compromise. It’s the world’s first solar-powered travel carry-on motorcycle top-case. The smaller sized version fits in an airplane’s carry-on compartment, but won’t have enough room for your helmet. Helpfully, there is a larger one that does, but that one won’t fit overhead. It has wheels, a telescoping handle, and even a solar panel to charge your electronics inside. If you opt for the smaller version and are wondering what you’ll do with your helmet, know that the base comes with a 5mm Steel Cable Lock, so you can securely attach your skull protector on the bike and leave it behind. It’s made of a solid polycarbonate exterior, but also comes in carbon fiber if you’re feeling fancy. Prices start at a $190 pledge at the moment, although the company is quite far from being fully funded right now. If it reaches its goal, delivery should happen in June of 2016.
