The new Silca Seat Roll Asymmetrico uses a similar tool wrap design as their larger Seat Roll Premio (and huger Seat Roll Grande Americano, which was revised into the limited edition Avventura Americano), but in a much smaller size. But not as small as the Mattone BOA Bag, and just a big bigger than the Seat Capsule Premio. And definitely bigger than the cage-mounted Sicuro Capsule.
Where were we? Oh yeah, the Asymmetrico.
Designed to hold the bare essentials, it has three sleeves to capture the items most needed on a road ride. While we’re thinking you’d wanna stuff a compact Tubolito or Schwalbe Aerothon tube in there, Silca says it’ll fit regular tubes designed for tires up to 700×45 (29×1.75″). Like, maybe, Silca’s Latex Tubes.
The closure is a BOA L6 with lace guide, wrapping around a 2-ply ballistic nylon base and abrasion-resistant Hypalon outer jacket that Velcro wraps around it once it’s rolled up. This should keep it quiet when tucked snugly against your saddle rails…and keep them protected thanks to a padded Rail Guard on the top/back panel.
As shown, four interior pockets are sewn to fit:
- two tire levers
- two CO2 with Silca’s chucks threaded on
- the tube
- a mini tool
