Sometimes it’s difficult to carry all the necessities when riding a bike. And we all know you need quite a lot of stuff if you’re going bike packing. Sure, the whole point is to pack light, but things like sleeping bags and tents do take space. Even if you’re not spending the night outdoors, there are still some things to carry. Ortlieb designed different packs where you can store everything and still have an easy ride. There’s the seat pack, handlebar pack, frame pack and accessory pack.
The Seat Pack is waterproof and can be adjusted to fit between 8 L and 16.5 L. Just fasten it to a seat post and saddle rails and transport your gear with safety. When speaking of safety, this bag has reflectors and loops for tail light.
The Handlebar Pack can be attached to different types of handlebars. To do so, there are two straps and eight spaces for attaching. It has a capacity of 1.5 L and weighs 14.7 oz. Just like the rest of the packs, this one is also waterproof so whatever you pack inside it will stay dry. Also, the way it’s attached will keep the weight of the pack equally distributed on your bicycle.
The Accessory Pack can fit 3.5 L. You can attach it to the bars or use as shoulder or hip pack. With this capacity and weight of 7.3 oz it’s the smallest pack in the series. The four adjustable metal hooks give you the ability to fix it to the outside of the Handlebar Pack as well.
These three pack will be available from June this year, while the fourth, the Frame Pack will be released in 2017. It will be designed for heavy gear, tools or food and fixed to a bicycle frame. [via] (photo source)
