Inspired by the 1950s pioneers of off-road cycle touring, the Caledonian Mini slings over your top tube to keep snacks, tools and valuables close at hand, on self-sufficient day rides or as a useful addition to your touring set-up.
The twin pannier design of the mini pannier offers a secure and accessible way of organising your snacks, valuables and any other handy ‘bits’. (And by valuables we mean obviously mean jelly babies). Double the capacity of most top tube bags, both compartments are zippered with a fold-over velcro storm flap. It sits snugly either side of your top tube, eliminating any wibble-wobble, and uses two sets of velcro straps to lock it firmly in place.
Waxed cotton might have been used in the ‘50s, but it’s still a fantastic material for making bike luggage. Waxed cotton is highly durable and exceptionally water resistant. With its water-resistant storm flap, YKK Aquaguard zip and PU-coated liner, the Goucho should keep out the worst of the weather, but we’d still recommend storing electronics in a dry bag.
Designed, cut and sewn on the edge of the Peak District by our talented factory team, the Caledonian Mini 4L comes with a 25-year Alpine Bond warranty.
