Description

Glider frame bag sits in your front triangle giving stable storage for heavier items, keeping your centre of gravity low for maintaining good bike handling. The ½ frame bag design fits within most road bikes, and at 4 cm wide it’s for your road, cycle touring, or adventure bikepacking setup.

Glider is spacious for its size, with a smaller accessory pocket and key hook to keep your kit organised. The front-facing cable port keeps things neat when running wires to your dynamos and charging your light batteries on-the-go during longer bikepacking adventures.

Constructed from lightweight and abrasion resistant fabrics in our UK factory, Glider copes with demands of travel without adding weight to your set-up. Like all our UK-made bike packing luggage, it’s backed up by our 25-year Alpine Bond warranty... Read more
