Before big rides it’s always a good idea to prepare before you leave the house. You should do things like check the weather and pack all of the right clothing. It’s also great to check your route and make sure there aren’t any detours. Finally, you should make sure you have snacks and money to get by in a pinch.

But there are always situations that you can’t plan for—like a flat tire when you are sixty kilometres from home. So it’s important that you have the right stuff with you. But where do you pack them? In such circumstances, a handy saddle bag can be a great option. And it happens that Brazilian manufacturer Nordweg is offering a new bag that can meet all your needs.

The Serra Saddle Bag is perfect for travel

For this new saddle bag, Nordweg has partnered with the Brazilian brand Kirschner. The bag measures 16.5cm x 9.5cm x 5cm, and is easy to mount under your saddle. The bag is made of waterproof material, so everything inside will stay dry.

There is also room for your other necessities in this bag. For example: your keys, a patch kit, a multitool and your phone. For easy and quick access to the aforementioned necessities, saddle bags are hard to beat.


According to Nordweg, the saddle bag has been extensively tested by its makers who explored the local forest paths during lunchtimes. The bag comes with a three-month warranty and is very light, only weighing 176g when empty.

The Sera Saddle Bag is available in brown or black leather and costs $89. If you are interested, here’s a link to purchase.
