Amsterdam, April 2019 - PEdALED launches its new Odyssey Bikepacking bags, designed to be the ultimate combination of on-the-bike baggage for adventures on two wheels. The bag collection consists of a seat-bag, half frame bag, top tube bag and handlebar bag and is an addition to the Odyssey clothing collection.
The Cluster seat-bag is an invaluable piece of kit, synonymous in bikepacking. Whether you’re going on a mini adventure or planning on riding around the world the Cluster has enough carrying capacity to satisfy every cyclist’s needs.
The Cluster is made of an extremely abrasion resistant material, which makes it durable during any bikepacking tour. The fabric has an internal water-resistant coating that ensures a water resistance of 10,000 mm. The lower half of the bag has an insert in the reinforced double layer fabric which protects the bag from any rear wheel contact and as a mudguard. The bag attaches to the seat-post with two non-slip coated velcro straps. This provides excellent grip and can help reduce any abrasion on the seat-post by as much as 50%. The cluster can also be safely used on carbon seat-posts and saddles.
The Internode is a half frame bag which is fit for any occasion. This spacious and extremely durable bag can be used during a long day trip, groceries or your daily commute. The bag fits most bikes including road, gravel, mountain bikes and anything in between.
The front section where the Internode connects to the head-tube, is reinforced with extra padding to avoid any contents damaging the frame. There is a small opening at the front of the bag, for battery cables or the tube of a water bladder system. The bag is completely coated and has a tear-resistant fabric, which makes it resistant to rain.
The Node sits on the top tube of the frame and can be placed at the headset or close to the seat post. The top tube has a strap which can be positioned in three different position and in two different height settings at the headset or seat tube.
The bottom of the bag is provided with non-slip fabric, which makes it stable and reduces lateral movement whilst pedaling. The central zip makes it easy to open the bag one-handed, which doesn’t require stopping when wanting to grab something. The interior is padded which ensures thermal insulation and stability. The two outer side mesh pockets are ideal for small items, i.e. energy bars.
Tendril is the handlebar bag that can be mounted on both drop (road and gravel type) and straight (MTB) bars. The bag sits 2 centimeters from the handlebar, which allows the cables (brakes and gear) to run unhindered.
The bag is closed by rolling the two sides in, implemented by a compression system. The closing system allows you to minimize the external dimensions of the bag which is ideal for drop bars. This helps avoid any contact with the hands and to maintain full control of the bike. The bag has two adjustable straps on the outside that make it possible to add a second bag, tent or sleeping mat.
