Description

Fuel Pod Rear is a weatherproof 1L bag, sitting at the rear of the top tube for easy mid-ride access. Ideal to keep weight central on the bike or as an add-on for bikepacking systems when all other frame locations are full. Soft-touch velcro straps and foam padded sides keep the bag stable and prevent rattling and the taller profile keeps it out of your way when pedalling. Hardwearing waterproof fabrics and a water-resistant YKK AquaGuard® zip protect your kit from all but the heaviest rain. The Fuel Pod Rear is built to last by hand in our UK Factory with a 25-year Alpine Bond.

Sustainability & Care

Environmental impact

Organic cotton

X-Pac® X11 fabric uses a hard-wearing 100% organic cotton face fabric. Organic cotton farming produces significantly less CO₂, uses less water and eliminates the use of harmful pesticides.

Climate neutral fabric

X-Pac® X11 fabric is certified by cleenTEC® as being 100% climate neutral. X11 is made from a mixture of plant-based and recycled materials and manufactured in factories using only green energy.

Care Advice

The Fuel Pod Rear has a DWR coating which helps it to repel water and dirt. After your ride, wipe down your bag with a damp cloth to remove dirt or use mild soap on more stubborn muck. Leave to air dry.
