Our favourite saddle bags trending right now
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll be aware saddle bags are no longer fashion faux pas. If anything, using a saddle bag these days is considered pro. With so many options on the market, it’s time to free up some of that jersey pocket space and hide away your puncture kits in style. Here’s a collection of our favourite saddle bags featured on the Emporium:
SKINGROWSBACK PLAN B MICRON SADDLE BAG DIGI DESERT
This water resistant saddle bag from skingrowsback features enough space to fit a spare road tube and tyre levers with two elastic loops for stowing away a multi tool and a CO2 canister. The compact saddle bag looks great in the desert camo-inspired colour scheme combined with a bright orange strap ensuring your rear end will always stand out from the crowd.
SPEEDSLEEV RANGER S
Saddle bags don’t have to be bulky in order to stuff enough spares to get you home after a flat. The waterproof Ranger S from Speedsleev packs a serious punch in a sleek, aerodynamic profile. With enough space to fit a road tube, two CO2 canisters, two tyre levers, an inflator and a multi-tool. It’s hard to look past this saddle bag that has been designed to keep you on the road without compromising speed.
SILCA SEAT ROLL PREMIO
BOA dials are a premium adjustment system we usually associate with high-end road shoes – that’s why when we saw what the designers at Silca had come up with on the Seat Roll Premio we knew they meant business. The waxed canvas composition of this saddle bag offers waterproof protection with an elegant cross thread stitched design for a timeless look. Pair all this with the BOA closure system that securely attaches the bag to your saddle rails and there’s simply nothing quite like it on the market.
ALBION TOOL ROLL
Albion’s saddle bag is a tool roll made in Britain using Halley Stevenson’s P270 Super Dry waterproof fabric and with an adjustable saddle mount strap. If you haven’t used a tool roll before, it’s a simple, functional method for storing and protecting essential tools and spares when out on long rides. Large enough to fit a tube, multi-tool, some levers and a few other bits and pieces, the classic style saddlebag stores just enough to get you home. Available in three different colours to match back to the Albion Cycling apparel range.
NORTH ST. BAGS SCOUT 11 HANDLEBAR DUFFLE
Saddle bag just not large enough for your stash? For the commuter or weekend traveller who desires a bit more space to carry their essentials while exploring the roads. The North St. Bags Scout 11 duffle bag attaches directly to your handlebars via two velcro straps for easy accessibility while on the go. The versatility of this bag is exactly why we love it, when you’ve finished your ride, loosen the straps and carry the bag along with you. Available now on the Emporium in a wide variety of colours including army green, chocolate & tan, khaki & tan and black.
