Saddle bags are often an essential accessory for many cyclists. They can be used to carry small items from tools & puncture repair kits, to larger items such as your phone, wallet and keys. To help you choose which saddle bag is best for you, more information is listed below.
Saddle bags, also known as seat bags or wedge packs, are smaller, typically wedged shaped bags that fit snugly up under the saddle, attaching to both the seat rails and seatpost. Saddle bags available on BikeExchange range in size from micro to large and can be used for everything from emergency mechanical situations to storage for commuting and even to storage for overnight bikepacking rides, so there’s sure to be a saddle bag to suit all types of riding.
Small and micro sized saddle bags are a favourite for cyclists wanting an inconspicuous way to carry small emergency repair kits and tools with them during rides. Their lightweight and aerodynamic design frees up space in your jersey pockets or pack for other ride essentials like a phone, gels, money and food.
Larger sized saddle bags are often partitioned inside, making use of separate compartments and/or internal velcro dividers. With capacities ranging up to 21L, this means even more room for a comprehensive tool kit and spares, lightweight rain jackets and clothing for longer endurance or unsupported rides or even just your phone, wallet, keys and documents for work.
