Fuel Pod Mediumaccessory bag
Lightweight and minimalist top tube-mounted bike packing for keeping your bits and bobs handy; UK-made to last.
Fuel Pod Medium accessory bag
When all you want to do is ride, you need partner who’s ready when you are, who slides into step with minimal interference, and who keeps you kit safe but has it to hand the moment you need it. Or failing that, you need a Fuel Pod.
Fuel Pod is a simple and stripped-back accessory bag, with zip closure for easy access to your kit without grinding to a halt.
A YKK Aquaguard zip and large Gloworm phosphorescent puller gives one-handed access to your windproof, camera or GPS - even with gloves on.
Constructed from waterproof, bombproof, and ultralight VX21, 550d Cordura and a protective foam lining in our UK factory, Fuel Pod is made to endure the demands of life on the road without adding weight.
Velcro straps, sewn into the seams for longevity, can be cut to size to fit your steerer. Hypalon tabs on the bottom attach to your top tube with the velcro straps provided.

Dimension Polyant fabric and YKK water resistant zippers make a very weatherproof combination but we do not guarantee these bags are waterproof as the seams are not sealed. On a long ride water may eventually seep through the zip and the seams and keeping anything that absolutely must stay dry in a lightweight drybag such as an Airlok is good practice.

Fuel Pod Medium
ottimo prodotto - perfetto per un randonneur !
Very good quality
Well made, a nice size, and stays in place well once secured. A bit fiddly to get the velcro wrapped around and through the webbing loops, so takes a little longer than you expect.
Perfect for keeping my Hadron light's battery in, plus a few extra bits, though an extra benefit could be a rear "cable entry point" as well as the front one, to make it easier to run the rear light at the same time.
Fuelpod attaches very nicely to the frame thanks to the 3 velcro straps. It's sits firmly and does not sit in the way. Happy and very satisfied customer. All my gear is from Alpkit
Very good quality
The product looks very nice, is of very quality and has a good size. i miss a manual on how best to install it. Eg: do you cut the velcro straps to lenght? i am reluctant to do so in case it won't fit another bike. maybe there's a clever maner to put them around the tube nicely so the doesn't stick out. It would also be nice with two long internal storage rooms running the lenght of the bag. This could help to keep your stuff a bit more organized.
Hi Coppi, Glad to hear you like your fuel pod. The velcro straps are all cut to the same length on all our bike luggage. You can cut them down to the right length to fit your tubes.
Have got the medium, and its great for charging the phone on the go, and storing snack bars etc.
the hole for taking the charging cable is great, and well thought out.
Loose 1 mark for the Velcro, But I swapped these out and they hold so much better, much less slippage than the velcro
Fuel Pod Medium
Recently purchased one of these in black. It sits quite high on the frame but once secured firmly stays in place well. I secured it with 3 Velcro straps. The webbing allows multiple straps to be used to help make more secure. Lots of capacity. Not sure about waterproof nests yet, I did have a couple of showers on first ride and water beaded off so under lighter rain conditions fine. I waited for black to come back in stock and pleased I waited. Overall I am pleased with the fuel pod and would recommend.
Great Little Pod
After reading many reviews and peoples stories of going correctly equipped I opted for a medium fuel pod. Packed with kit that I needed readily available, fuel gels, hairbo, etc I was ready to go. After some adjusting the pod fitted well to the bike, teasing the velcro through, was at times a little tricky, but persevere and you won't be disappointed. The pod stayed in place over a long and arduous ride, held up well to the elements and all my kit stayed dry.
Not a good fit
Bought this for my CdF but while it was a perfect size for what I needed it didn't fit particularly well. The velcro strap could not be arranged neatly under the stem as shown in the product picture. This meant when the handlebars were turned the bag leant to the side and this was worse once the bag was loaded. Fitting the velcro strap in the top of the web ladder made little difference. I tried the bag in a few different configurations to get a good fit which resulted in some fraying on the bag. I bought an Enduro Pod instead which being that much smaller is nice and stable although cannot be closed with one hand. Only time will tell if it proves to be durable given the wear on the Fuel Pod caused by several attempts at fitting it to the bike.
Fuel Pod Medium
Quite disappointed with this product. I bought it for the London to Brighton off road ride and had constant issues with trying to keep it vertical. I seemed to have it strapped on ok but it kept needing constant adjustments to be vertical and then it would flop and I would bang my knee against it. Advice please, am I doing something wrong?
