UK Made Adventure - Stem Cell

By Col

An insight into the creation of a bike packing set up here at Alpkit HQ UK factory. The Stem Cell.

Following on from the Koala Seat Pack we move to the front of the bike in our series of short videos showing Ben at work in our UK factory. This time we see him make a Stem Cell, creating a bikepacking set up of UK made bike luggage and an insight into the products made right here at Alpkit HQ. 

Again, the benefits of working in house has meant we can adapt quickly to developments, such as making tweaks in sizing to allow more efficient use of the product. The Stem Cell, or larger Stem Cell XL are handy stem-mounted bottle/ accessory bags for easy on-the-go access. Even better doubled up, these bags help systemise your bike cockpit, ideal for making those long multi-day journeys more efficient, whether using them for a water bottle, trail mix, or your complete cooking set up.
