Fabric selection & Design
This is the larger area of the bag and where you can put a stamp on making your bag unique.
The contact point with the frame often a fabric with good abrasion resistance properties suits for here.
Easily over looked but an important element to any bag. Choose from two styles of liner and we reccomend a bright colour to aid visibilty.
Uses multiple tabs along the edge of the bag with a network of cord to secure the bag to your frame. This method allows the weight of the bag to be spread out across the length of the tube. A cord lock secures the ends to give an adjustable but secure fit. (We recommend this method for your top tube.)
Using hook and loop velcro® each strap will be sewn into your bag’s seams. The straps will be placed evenly across the length of the tube and positioned so not to interfere with any cable ports or Di2 junctions on your frame.
COMPRESSION CINCH STRAP
This attachment option is quick to fit. Installed into to seams of the bag with a low profile cam buckle on one side. Wrap the strap around the frame and secure in place.
This attachment option utilizes your frames braze-ons to provide a clean aesthetic. The bag is secured with bolts that fasten down a internal shim along the edge of the bag that are made to size.
This option offers a clean aethetic with no straps required. This is often best suited to smaller designs such as trail/enduro bags. The bag is sewn with loop velcro on the each and supplied with strips of industiral grade velcro that attach to your frame securing the bag in place. Rock solid fit.
YKK® Zipper : We only use high quality genuine YKK® zippers that have a water resistant coating on all of our products.
Hydration / Cable Port : A port running the width of the edge allowing for multiple hose and cables to fit. This feature is perfect for when using a water bladder inside your bag.
Drainage Hole : A small eyelet is installed at the lowest point of your bag to allow liquids to escape, this also aids drying.
The slim pocket is located on the non-drive side of your frame bag. This pocket is great for storing small items that are frequently used like a phone or your titanium spork. To create the divider between drive side compartment and the non-drive side pocket a panel of X-Pac® VX21/RVX25 is used. The X-Pac® fabric will match your chosen liner colour.
Internal Storage Rail
This is a great feature to enhance your organisation options inside the frame bag, especially if you have a smaller front triangle. This storage rail is fitted along the internal edge along the top tube section of the bag. It comes with two elastic cord straps that fit along the multi-slot rail. This is perfect for items such as tent poles and a pump. Quick and easy storage that keeps items out of the way.
The velcro® divider secures the drive side and non-drive side panels together to prevent bulging and create organisation. The divider can be separated to give you full access to your frame bags space to give you flexible storage capacity. This feature is suited when the frame bag has one large drive side compartment.
The weight-bearing design of this divider is unique to Straight Cut®and has been developed and tested in the real world. There is a semi-detachable divider that creates a horizontal partition. The top compartment is double secured velcro which allows the partition to be weight bearing. Each drive side compartment has a zipper entry. This upgrade is best suited to full frame bags.
