Racing Saddle Pack
Materials & care
The Racing Saddle Pack is the first rear pack dedicated to ultra-distance cycling competition and audax. Featuring a sleek design with a compact capacity, the bag is ideal for storing light, compressible items over vast distances.
Constructed from an ultralight, waterproof laminate developed for Apidura. The seat bag weighs less than 210g and securely fastens with a sturdy three-point attachment system. It’s designed to fit ergonomically under the saddle, minimising sway and reducing drag.
Light attachment points are laser-cut into the fabric, increasing rider safety without adding unnecessary weight. The saddle bag features a high-contrast reflective design to enhance visibility in all light conditions.
A roll-top closure provides adjustable capacity, and tailored webbing, straps and buckles shed extra weight, while ensuring the simplest setup for ease of use, when every second matters.
The Racing Saddle Pack is made from Hexalon, a bespoke laminated fabric developed specifically for Apidura. Designed to fit the demands of ultra-distance cycling competition and audax, the material is waterproof and lightweight, with strong tear and abrasion resistance.
The attachment points of the seat bag are reinforced with Hypalon, a durable rubberised nylon that provides extra protection against friction and puncture. For the fastening system, we’ve chosen Woojin buckles for strength and reliability.
Wash by hand, using a mild diluted soap if necessary. Afterwards, let it air dry.
Do not machine wash, machine dry, or iron.

If possible, flip the seat post collar so that the bolt is on the opposite side of the post to the Saddle bag. This will ensure that the base of the bag avoids wear and tear.
