When all you want to do is ride, you need a partner who’s ready when you are, who slides into step with minimal interference, and who keeps your kit safe but has it to hand the moment you need it. Or failing that, you need a Fuel Pod.  

Fuel Pod is a stable and lightweight top tube bikepacking bag that sits securely on your top tube to keep your stuff within reach whilst riding. With zip closure and a front facing cable port, it's ideal for storing that dynamo cable, your light battery, or those gloves you want to access without grinding to a halt.  

A YKK Aquaguard zip and large glow-in-the-dark zip puller gives one-handed access to your phone, light battery, and snacks - even with gloves on.  

Constructed from lightweight and abrasion resistant fabrics, Fuel Pod is made to endure the demands of your two-wheeled epics without giving you a weight penalty. Like all our UK-made bike packing luggage, it’s backed up by our 25-year Alpine Bond warranty.  

The velcro steerer strap is sewn into the seams for longevity and can be cut to size to fit neatly below you stem. Grippy Hypalon tabs attach to your top tube with the velcro straps provided.  

"Is it waterproof?" 

Although highly weather resistant, this product is not fully waterproof due to its stitched construction. If you are carrying valuables or electronic equipment, make sure to put it in a dry bag.
