Acepac had their regular huge lineup at Eurobike in addition to a tent on show.

Nothing stood out specifically, however the building and supplies seemed nice on the entire baggage.

A few of the Acepac baggage have been arrange on a motorcycle with the Redshift Kitchen Sink handlebar. This handlebar has many handholds with many that supply massive ergonomic platforms to distribute the load throughout your palms. The setup appears tremendous cozy.


With its distinctive seat keep mount, the Spider rack will match onto any body. This rack was beforehand designed with a cradle to accommodate a dry bag, now there’s a new mannequin that matches panniers.

It’s not preferrred to suit heavy baggage on the rear triangle of a full suspension bike, because it impacts the suspension efficiency. However panniers are handy, and the perfect bike is the one you will have proper now.


The Brooks Scape waterproof bikepacking baggage have been launched not too long ago, and look very sensible (I anticipated nothing much less from Brooks). Within the vary are a handlebar pack, together with seat, body, stem, and high tube packs. There are additionally small panniers and some handlebar bag designs.

The bikepacking handlebar pack makes use of a harness design whereas the rear seat pack is a holster – each with separate dry baggage.


Camelbak simply entered the bikepacking house with an entire lineup of baggage. They’re all waterproof and there’s even a framepack-specific two-litre water bladder designed to neatly nest inside. The framepack really received an award at Eurobike too!


Cyclite is making a reputation for itself by making very sharp-looking, ultralight bikepacking baggage which might be additionally aerodynamic. Try the dimensions of that high tube pack – it’s 2.2 litres!

I notably favored the 5-litre Handlebar Aero Bag as it will possibly join on to aero bars, handlebars (as proven beneath), or the entrance of the handlebar pack (as proven above). There may be an extra Aero Mount out there that can match a entrance dynamo gentle or some other accent (this frees up some house).

The baggage are lately out there in black too, which might be a wise selection should you’re anticipating any rain or mud.


A yr in the past, EVOC revamped its BOA-dial bikepacking lineup to supply extra selection and bag quantity. The baggage look to make use of good abrasion-resistant supplies and really stable attachment factors.

The entrance bag continues to be reasonably small at 5 litres in its greatest measurement, however the rear bag is out there for as much as 16 litres – just like different seatpacks in the marketplace.

Jack Wolfskin

German outside firm Jack Wolfskin is now within the pannier and bikepacking house. These guys are identified for producing respectable outside clothes, so maybe it’ll enchantment to present clients.

The Morobbia baggage have Fidlock magnetic fasteners to cinch them down (see image above). They’re are all waterproof, bluesign licensed, PFC-free, and are made virtually solely from recycled supplies. The bag volumes are utterly affordable too (eg. the handlebar pack is 15-litres, and the fork packs are 7-litres every).

The brand new panniers don’t look half dangerous both…


Ortlieb had some new bikepacking bag colors out there. The darkish sand color seemed very nice, because it’s reasonably delicate.

There’s a restricted version mustard color for the bikepacking vary too.

Ortlieb is performing some fairly nifty customized designs lately. A departure from the first bag colors of the previous…


OSTRICH was established in 1968 and makes its complete vary of bicycle baggage in Tokyo (Japan).

I used to be impressed with the Entrance Bag Help Service that makes taking the 12.5-litre randonneur bag off a breeze. It additionally helps to maintain the bag steady when you experience.


The newest Vaude colors are wanting very sharp this yr. Sadly, latest critiques on the Vaude touring merchandise are displaying bag separation the place they’re glued collectively. Hopefully, Vaude will get on high of this quickly (in the event that they haven’t already).


Zefal had their baggage arrange on a motorcycle in addition to mounted on a wall. There may be nothing notably particular to notice about these baggage, however Zefal is distributed throughout a really massive seller community, which implies that these bikepacking baggage are extremely accessible to shoppers. The value is reasonably priced too.
