Mini Restrap Rear Top Tube Bag and New Orange Options!
Restrap’s Carry Everything line adds an all-new rear top tube bag after revamping its bulky handlebar bags just over a week ago. Folded up against your seatpost, it adds an extra 0.8L of tight, waterproof storage for storing tools or small spares when space gets tight. At the same time, Restrap thinks not everyone wants a low-profile setup, and Orange is the new black, right.
Restrap Mini Rear Top Tube Bag
Restrap’s new small rear top tube bag isn’t the first we’ve seen for packing a little more gear against your seat post – we’ve tried similar adaptable packs from Revelate, EVOC, Apidura and others. In fact, many strap toptube bags can be moved rearward for riders with sloping frame designs who need a little more storage. The trick is usually to add a little useful extra room without getting in the way of your legs when pedaling or getting off the bike in front of the saddle.
Technical details and prices
The Restrap solution is a small quarter circle 3cm wide x 18cm long x 13cm high with a full length waterproof zipper along its outer arc and a claimed weight of 65g including the two Velcro straps with adjustable position.
Inside, a light plastic liner gives the bag structure, strapped stability at just two points (adjustable position to go around your saddle collar), and makes it easier to open with one hand between the legs.
The black-only bag features an orange nylon lining to make it easier to find small items inside, and is handmade in Yorkshire, UK. The 100% Waterproof Top Tube Tail Bag is available now for £35 / $53 / €42.
Refined Restrap Canister Bag
Another small update in addition to the revamped 2-size Bar Bag v3, Restrap has also upgraded its Canister Bag with the same internal plastic reinforcement structure as the new rear top tube bag. They also add an extra elastic retention strap that lets you secure the bag around your head tube to keep it from bouncing around while riding. Additionally, the updated £45/$68/€54 canister now comes in bright orange and olive green, in addition to the standard black.
Orange is the new black
Not just the Canister in orange, Restrap says their orange tire starter kit is more easily found in the dark depths of your overloaded pack when you need to repair a damaged tire on the side of the road or on a trail in the light of the weather. decreasing day. Also, once the tire is primed, the orange patch will always make it easier to find the repair inside a black tire, or to keep an eye out for a big cut from the outside through the tread.
