Vaude’s three new bike bags, aptly named Trailfront, Trailsaddle and Trailframe, all feature roll-down closures that are easy to use and roll up tight. Made from PVC-free tarpaulin with welded seams, they seal out water effectively and the handlebar bag and the saddlebag are designed to carry the largest part of your load. A central mounting system keeps you agile and your bike under control even on rough terrain. Both bags are designed so that the mounting system remains on the bike, allowing the bags to be easily and quickly attached or detached. Together the three bags offer 39 liters of hauling capacity. The Trailfront handlebar bag also has additional straps to attach other gear pieces if desired.
The Trailsaddle bag is mounted under the saddle and provides 12 liters of space. This is ideal for storing equipment that is not needed during the ride. It not only keeps your gear dry but it also serves as a splashguard to keep you dry as well.
The Trailfront handlebar bag is accessible on both sides through roll closure openings. The bag provides 19 liters of volume and is ideal for transporting lighter loads such as an insulation pad and sleeping bag, or clothing.
There is also a strap for carrying the bag over your shoulder when it is detached. Extra gear, such as a tent or bivvy bag, can be attached by using the exterior pack straps. The bag is easily mounted onto the handlebars or the stem. The attachment is adjustable in width and has a practical foam spacer to ensure that you have enough room for brake and gear cables.
The Trailframe bag has an 8-liter carrying capacity and is ideal for heavier gear such as tools or a stove. The two lower attachment straps can be removed, so that the bag’s width can be adjusted and it can also be attached to bikes with rear suspension. Strong adhesive, rubberized bands attach the bag to the top tube.
All of the products have been made with Eco Finish – an eco-friendly, fluorocarbon-free, water-repellent finish that is PFC-free.
