Based in Nelson and Dunedin, New Zealand, Aeroe was founded by Pat Maguire, creator of the Freeload bike rack acquired by Thule in 2012. His latest creation, the Aeroe BikePack looks different from any other bikepacking bag system out there. According to Aeroe’s marketing, it’s lightweight, rugged, and has a quick mount and release action. With several different attachment solutions, including a seatpost mount, handlebar mount, rear rack mount, and fork mounts, the Aeroe BikePack fits a variety of bikes and is positioned for road touring, bikepacking, and urban commuting.
The BikePacks are made from a waterproof 600D nylon and will come in three sizes, 9, 11, and 14 liters. Aeroe claims they weigh 490, 540, 590 grams respectively.
It is unclear what the exact pricing of the system will be, but there is a grid based in $NZ that shows the various options in which you can buy in to the project. The Kickstarter campaign will be used to raise money to bring the Aeroe BikePack to the global market in November of 2018. Check out the Kickstarter campaign for more details.
