After more than 25 years of contributing to the dialogue of urban cycling, Timbuk2 continues to produce thoughtful product like the bags available now.
Kicking off this discussion is a series of ArtCrank poster-themed messenger bags. The “Rose Home” and “The Long Way Home” bags possess the same functional elements of Timbuk2’s other cross strap messenger bags (side-entry Napoleon pocket, reflective points, etc.). Each model features its poster theme on the inside of the flap and have exterior bag details styled to match. See their other Spring offerings after the jump…
Up next are a pair of products featuring their new patent-pending “MAGNACLICK” technology, a clever system designed to securely but quickly attach and remove bags from your bike through the use of, you guessed it, magnets.
This technology is debuting on in a pint-sized format on their water-resistant, molded foam Especial Seat Pack.
It also appears on the attractive new Timbuk2 Especial Pannier. This fully-waterproof welded CORDURA and TPU coated nylon bag boasts a carrying capacity of up to 180 pounds and a versatile rack attachment. For you professionals, it has an integrated padded pocket that is designed to fit a 15” MacBook or smaller laptop.
Moving beyond magnet technology, Timbuk2 is also releasing the versatile, 25L Sonoma Seat Pack. Designed with straps to accommodate a variety of mounting positions on and off the bike and impressive expansive capabilities, this bag has both your day-to-day and epic ride carrying needs covered.
The practical Alemany Pannier is designed to carry a standard brown grocery bag and features a hanging fruit net for your fragile food item portaging needs. rom the farmer’s market or co-op.
And if your trip from the grocery store happens to include beverage acquisition, you might be a candidate for the six-pack compatible Essential Handlebar Bag. This model features a zipper on the back for easy rider access to bag contents while on the bike and a versatile handlebar attachment to work with any of your rides.
Last but not least, the fashionable Noe Pannier.
This bag is designed with backpack straps and hideaway hardware to disguise the fact that you are a carrying a pannier while off the bike- perfect for those riders who don’t want (or need) to advertise their mode of transportation. It also features small side pockets to hold your small u-lock and gloves.
