Amsterdam, April 23rd - Brazilian leather goods manufacturer Nordweg has teamed up with cycling brand Kirschner to create the gorgeous leather Serra Saddle Bag. Compact and minimal, it secures tightly under either a road or mountain bike saddle with a durable canvas strap and Velcro fastening.
The grey nylon lining is water resistant and the signature Nordweg zip pull is sturdy. It holds the essentials and nothing more, like: inner tubes (1 mtb or 2 road tubes), keys, CO2 canister and a small multi-tool. Find out more about the Serra Saddle Bag on the dedicated landing-page here.
The saddle bag is road tested by Nordweg’s factory workers on their lunch rides exploring the local mountain forest trails, as well as by friends of both brands around the world. The Serra is ready to accompany you on your adventures on and off the beaten track.
I took the Serra Saddle Bag on a bicycle trip through Marocco. We've travelled from Marrakech over the mountains towards the Sahara desert, where we encountered endless gravel and rocky roads. Not once I had to worry about the bag, keeping my essentials nice and steady whilst I enjoyed the ride.Frank van der Sman (https://www.instagram.com/frankvandersman/)
The first production run is ready to ship, the suggested retail price is $88 including free FedEx worldwide shipping.
The Nordweg brand was created by Igor Gaelzer, one of the sons of Ingo and Marisa, founders of the leather goods factory. The traditional and quality focused family business is located in the mountains of the south of Brazil, where the manufacturing team has been handcrafting high-quality leather accessories for more than twenty years.
Kirschner Brasil was founded in 2012 by Isaque Kirschner, a passionate cyclist from São Bento do Sul, Brazil. The company was born out of the frustration with what cycling apparel was available in Brazil at the time. Isaque wanted to take a stand against the lack of style and often poor manufacturing. Kirschner chose to create apparel that combined quality, function and thoughtful design from Brazil.
