    • Can the Thule pannier magnet damage my laptop or other electronics?
      No, the Thule pannier magnet won’t damage your laptop or other electronics. Modern electronics, including hard drives and smartphones are impervious to damage by simple magnets. We have taken additional measures and included dispersion materials in our panniers to deflect or minimize the magnet field going beyond the intended purpose of securing the bags on the rack.
    • Do Thule Pack ’n Pedal products contain PVC?
      All Thule Pack ’n Pedal™products are PVC-free.
    • Do the panniers contain any internal compartments? If so, what size laptop do they fit?
      The Thule Pack ’n Pedal Commuter Pannier has an internal pocket which can accommodate up to a 15” laptop. There are two external pockets, one of which is meant for a “blinky” light (it’s semi-transparent so the light shows through the pocket) and the other can hold small items. The Thule Pack ’n Pedal Touring Panniers and Tote have no internal pockets, but both have external pockets for a “blinky” light.
    • How can I create more clearance for pedaling action when panniers are mounted?
      The Thule Pack ’n Pedal Rail Extender Kit can screw into the Thule Pack ’n Pedal Tour Rack rails to extend foot clearance.
    • What is the warranty for Thule Pack ’n Pedal products?
      5 years.
    • What materials are the rain covers made from?

      The Thule Pack ’n Pedal Tour Rack has side rails that can be used for mounting panniers. The Thule Pack ’n Pedal Sport Rack is designed to accommodate top loads only and does not come with side rails.
