We’re not a big fan of saddle bags. We just can’t imagine the giants of the peloton having one on the back of their bikes. Plus given the opportunity we all carry more stuff than we actually need.
We hunted down these tool rolls as we thought they were the ideal balance between carrying things in our back pocket and putting things on our bike. They have the capacity for an inner tube, a multitool and a couple of tyre levers – the stuff you normally take with you on most rides. This frees up space for jelly babies and cake money – proper ride essentials and stops you stretching the pockets on your prize wool jersey.
Made in Los Angeles, the roll attaches to your saddle using a quick release buckle so it’s easy to put on and take off your bike.
There are three different colours, black and blue made from cordura and orange – made from recycled road sign.
