JET Roll’s under saddle tool rolls are an exercise in carrying the fewest tools possible wrapped securely to your saddle rails. But this time of year, and especially heading off-road, wrapping your gear up in fabric and tying it under your butt puts it directly in harms way for all the tire spray and mud, and is a bit of a recipe for trouble. So Jet has taken their mountain bike roll and given it an update to securely and cleanly store you spares….
The Wild Weasel 2.0 is now a winter, wet & foul weather specific tool roll made of a tacky waterproof material to keep snow, freezing rain, and ice at bay. The synthetic wrap gives a bit of extra grip to hold your tools and spares in place inside, but also works well to keep it secure to the saddle rails when bouncing along down the trail.
The new Wild Weasel 2.0 with the improved fabric sells for the same $65 as the prior MTB version. It includes the same mountain bike tube (1x 29er or 2x road tubes), CO2, and tool pocket layout, plus adds a new loop to more securely stash a mini pump or another CO2. It also comes with a pair of rubber bands designed to made it easier to stash spare tubes inside, a pair of compression bands to wrap the outside up tight, and a toe strap to hold it in place.
Beside the standard blue and gray colors for version 2.0, Jet also has a limited edition Joker version available in a week or two that will feature a deep purple fabric with matte black & gray trim, and neon orange & green stitching. The Joker version adds $40 to a total of $105, but it seems that if you pre-order it this week, they’ll throw in a Jet Roll Supersonic in black that has that same $49 value, and will also come with a higher-end double leather toe strap with stainless steel hardware. Like the rest, all JET Rolls are made one at a time by hand in the US.
