Pedaled launches Odyssey bikepacking bag range

Pedaled is ‘celebrating the spirit of adventure’ with its latest bikepacking bag range.

The latest range comprises the Odyssey Cluster seat-bag, the Internode half-frame bag, the versatile Node and handlebar bag, the Tendril.

Jacopo Porreca, Pedaled brand manager, said: “Pedaled has a well-established relationship with some of cycling’s harshest self-supported endurance races – the Transcontinental Race and the Silk Road Mountain Race among them – where riders take on incredible distances, climbing and weather in some of the harshest racing environments in the world. We are delighted to share our expertise through the design of our latest bikepacking bags for the adventure cyclist.”

“Designed with both rider and bike in mind, each bag is robust, water-resistant, lightweight, has reflective details, is easy to attach and remove, while enabling easy access on the move,” said a statement. “Padding, double-layered fabric and Velcro fixings combine to reduce potential damage to the frame through mud, dust, rear wheel contact or content movement. Synonymous with bikepacking is the seat-bag. Whether for a sub-24 hour mini-adventure, an around-the-world odyssey or anything in between, the Odyssey Cluster has the capacity to satisfy every need and can be compressed down when carrying minimal kit.”

The fabric has an internal water-resistant coating, while double-layered fabric in the lower half of the bag, combined with a protective insert, acts as a mudguard and reduces damage from rear wheel contact. The two velcro straps that attach the bag to the frame are coated on the inside with a non-slip material. The Odyssey Internode is a half-frame bag, designed to sit within the main triangle of the frame, fixed to the top, down and seat tubes via a series of velcro straps.

Pedaled’s Node bag sits on the top-tube and can be positioned either at the headset or seat-post end, the brand has said. Completing the range is the handlebar bag, the Tendril, which can be mounted on both drop and straight bars. Through the use of special rubber spacers, it sits about 20mm from the handlebars. The external dimensions of the bag can be compressed to fit within drop-bar handlebars.
