Of all the updated products in ORTLIEB's BikePacking range the Frame-Pack and the Frame-Pack Toptube are the ones who have seen the biggest improvements.
Firstly, following rider feedback the zipped access point for the bags has been switched to the drive-side of the bag. Typically, riders will place their bike on the ground or up against a wall with the drivetrain facing away from a surface meaning previously, the access was from the often inaccessible side of the bike which made it a little bit of a nuisance to get to anything inside those bags. Easily fixed.
But the big update is that all these top tube affixing bags now feature a channel which the top tube sits in - this now allows for bikes with cables running along under the top tube and the strapping points have been improved with more fixing points so that you can move the straps to other locations on the bag to avoid any on frame obstacles.
Be it a stroll through town or going off on a bike tour around the world, bike bags and backpacks by ORTLIEB are ideal for those who want to venture outdoors no matter what the weather.
