Tubus Carrier Systems Takes-Over ‘Wingee’ Branded Mudguards
MUNSTER, Germany – At the start of this month Tubus Carrier Systems GmbH has acquired the worldwide distribution and production rights of ‘Wingee’ branded mudguards from Herkelmann bikes.
The Wingee mudguards made from extruded aluminum are becoming increasingly popular, and ideally complement the product portfolio of the Tubus Carrier Systems second brand Racktime.
Mudguard, luggage carrier, light Integration
“The sustainable and lightweight Wingee-fenders will make it possible to integrate the mudguard, luggage carrier and light,” says Tubus-owner and head of development Peter Ronge.
In the past years Racktime has presented exemplary solutions for integrated lights & carriers together with their “light friends” Busch & Müller, which will be continued in future projects with the adding of mudguards. Tubus also takes over the entire production from Herkelmann.
Bernd Herkelmann, the creative mind behind the Wingee program will in future operate as a product developer for Tubus-Racktime, and be closely involved in the Wingee advancements.
1.3 million carriers sold
The Racktime brand is also continuing its growth. This year Tubus Carrier Systems GmbH will deliver about 1.3 million Racktime carriers to bicycle manufacturers.
