If you’re someone who shies away from an 'outdoors lifestyle', you might be yet to hear of the brand Thule. Specialising in a wide range of premium products for active living such as sport carriers and roof racks, Thule is a global brand who now also produces baby joggers, child bike seats and bike trailers.

Adding to their pushchair collection, Thule have released something a little different to their usual three-wheeled, jogging buggy range. The all-new Shine stroller is set to pave the way for all the city-dwellers and parents looking for the simplicity of an on-the-go stroller

From newborn to toddler, the new Thule Shine stroller takes on the rush of city life with a little one from day one, and all while benefitting from Thule’s amazingly dynamic design.

About Thule 

Before we look at the brand-new Shine stroller, you may be thinking there’s a lot more to know about the brand Thule, seeing that it was only in 2021 when they were available to the UK market. However, this brand is in no way newly founded or small in size…

Established in 1942 in the deepest forest of Småland, Sweden, Thule was founded by Erik Thulin, a true lover of the outdoors.  Erik first began Thule to design and manufacture roof racks, then progressed to bike, water and winter sport carrier plus, roof boxes, computer, sports bags and backpacks! Now, all these years later, Thule’s range of products are sold in more than 140 countries.

Then, just when you think their portfolio can’t get any bigger, Thule most recently infused their knowledge of the outdoors into the world of parenting, with child-related products to suit every modern family’s active lifestyle.

Thule sustainability

We love that Thule not only care about enjoying the outdoors, but also protecting it too. Their aim to contribute to a more sustainable world is being accomplished in offering innovative, high-quality products that are manufactured responsibly and, with the least possible impact on the climate and environment. 

Working strategically with a long-term approach in accordance with the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the dedicated sustainability work has been an integral part of Thule’s way of operating since the company was founded in 1942.

Thule Shine

The Thule Shine is the brand’s new all-city stroller. With a lightweight, compact, and easy-to-handle design, it is perfect for navigating urban space.  Yet, despite its size, it’s uncompromising on premium features with padded and reversible reclining seat and large ventilated and extendable canopy. Plus, with a built-in adjustable leg rest, you can really tell that Thule have accounted for quality, safe and comfortable cruising.

Stylish colourway

The classic black chassis offers a clean and modern frame that can be personalised with a canopy in a choice of 4 colours: Misty Rose, Alaska Blue, Black or Grey Melange. The large UPF50+ canopy is fitted with a sun visor at the front and is extendable with a neat panel that can be zipped away. The reflective strip on top of the canopy is in keeping with Thule's sporty sleek aesthetic that runs throughout all the Thule range. 

Compact fold

Maximising comfort and convenience, the Thule’s small footprint can also be pushed and packed up with just one hand! Simply fold up the Thule Shine for all your city stop-offs, whether to jump in a taxi or dip into a coffee shop. With the stroller’s large 10 kg capacity basket, you can rest assured that none of the on-board essentials are left behind for any day out and, it offers flexibility if just a few groceries need to be picked up on the way home.

The compact design of the Thule Shine allows parents to smoothly manoeuvre in any space, aided by the all-wheel suspension to absorb any bumps and curbs you might face.  Better yet, when all the adventuring for the day is done, the Thule Shine can then be stored efficiently with its self-standing design that optimises on space.


The Thule Shine’s versatile accessories lets the stroller grow with your child including a bassinet to use from birth. With a variety of secure, comfortable, and easy-to-use attachments, parents can explore the city with a newborn knowing that they’re safe and sound.  There is a selection of additional accessories you can soon purchase such as the bassinet, all-weather cover, colour seat liner and footmuff.
