About us

Straight Cut was launched in July, 2018 from a small flat in Edinburgh, Scotland. 

Ross has always been on a bike and combined with his background in product design has led to the design and manufacturing of custom frame bags and other outdoor equipment. Straight Cut is a small business with high ambitions, focused on creating high quality functional products.

We started off 2021 with a move to our new studio at Summerhall. This new studio is allowing expand and branch out with loads of exciting plans for the future.


In memory of Peter O’Reilly. The passing of his dad in 2017 was the catalyst to go chase his dream of design and to enjoy life.

A huge thank you to everyone for supporting Straight Cut. 


Our custom frame bags have been shortlisted for Scottish MTB product innovation 2018 and best Scottish MTB product 2019.
