Wheelrider, from Restless Travellers, is a new generation of modular top-cases for motorcycles that allow riders to use their top-case as an airplane or train carry-on, or simply to unlock it and take it easily to the hotel or office. Wheelrider is being introduced on crowdfunding site Kickstarter to bring their affordable top-cases to riders everywhere.

We have created a new generation of modular top-cases that will transform the function, style and versatility of motorcycles top-cases forever.

Restless Travellers, creators of Wheelrider, today launched its crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.

Wheelrider is revolutionizing motorcycle top-cases with a contemporary design and multi-functional purpose. Wheelrider has merged two essential items into one for riders who are always on the move. A motorcycle top-case that becomes carry-on luggage on wheels.

With a built in solar panel, Wheelrider is also equipped with a direct USB port to attach a standard cable that lets users charge their phones, tablets, or a spare power bank. This is an important function for riders who need to stay connected on the road for safety and fun.

The creator of Wheelrider saw a need for a top-case that was modern, convenient, multi-functional and aesthetically pleasing.

“After years of traveling on my motorcycle and dealing with suitcase trolley problems on road trips, we set out to create something that every rider can use while they are on tour,” said Stefano Mangini, creator of Wheelrider and avid motorcycle rider. “I created a new ultra-tough luggage dock system that is versatile, looks great and can be used as a travel carry-on case with wheels.”

Wheelrider has a diverse mounting plate that attaches to the rack of the motorcycle, and can host additional accessories such as a pouch containing a helmet and seat covers, as well as a built in helmet lock.

The contemporary design has interchangeable tops that allows riders to choose the size of their case depending on their needs - including the proper size for overhead bins for use as an airplane carry-on.

Wheelrider comes in a variety of colors, including night blue, ice grey, and deep red - finally bringing color and beauty to the traditionally dull top-cases currently on the market.

“We have created a new generation of modular top-cases that will transform the function, style and versatility of motorcycle top-cases forever,” added Mangini.

Wheelrider is available on Kickstarter starting at discounted early bird price of $190. For more information, and to pre-order Wheelrider, visit: Kickstarter.

This trip identified a need to solve problems for travelers and people that are on the move and that need modularity, by combining different functions into one convenient product. Restless Travellers has a goal to improve the way we move and see this world, and Wheelrider is a great product for this goal.
