Not having the right tool on hand is a real drag, but you don’t want to weigh down your pack or bike by bringing half your workshop along for rides. The folks at JET Roll are continually trying to help you find the best solution with their compact rolls that carry Just Enough Tools (yep, that’s what JET stands for) for any type of ride.
Their latest is the Spectre roll, the company’s offering for all-road or gravel riders which features a new matte metallic fabric. For mountain bikers, the new Wild Weasel 2.0 Joker Black Ace and an updated Thunderbolt ‘Warthog’ model provide options for conveniently carrying ride essentials.
The Spectre is JET Roll’s new road/gravel model for 2018. With its three pockets, this compact roll can carry one tube up to 700x43c, a CO2 pump head and air cartridges, tire levers, and a multi-tool. The Spectre bears a different look than previous JET Rolls as it’s made from a new material that’s durable yet lightweight, has a bit of stretch, and boasts a unique matte metallic appearance.
A single button fastens the roll shut, and to keep things looking flashy the button is cut like a crystal and colored jet black. The attachment strap is made from premium nylon with a stainless steel buckle. The Spectre comes in two color options- Matte Gunmetal Black or Matte Steel Blue Metallic. It is available online for $65 USD.
