FRAME BAG SIZE


LINER STYLE

Standard

Your frame bag will come with X-Pac™ VX21 or RVX25 fabric of your choice lining the internal edge of your frame bag. Combining the abrasion resistant properties of the Cordura® 1000d edge with the waterproof design of X-Pac™.

Ultimate

As we construct your bag this style choice will allow a water barrier to be created between the side panel fabric and the interior of your bag, offering a superior water repellency. This will also have the advantage of protecting the construction stitching from being exposed on your side panels keeping your frame bag looking clean. This upgrade is best suited to frame bags that have internal dividers.

ATTACHMENT METHODS

Velcro®

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.

Lace-up

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.) 

Bolt-on

Make use of your frames water bottles bosses and get a secure screw-on frame bag attachment. Custom internal plastic shims and washers that screw into place are provided. This is the most secure method of attachment for a bag. Accuracy when generating your template for this option is vital.

We recommend fitting frame protection to your bike if you like to keep your paintwork looking good. We use 3M™ protective tape that can be cut to size.


ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Slim Pocket

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 is used. The X-Pac™ fabric will match your chosen liner colour.

Internal Vertical Divider

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.

Horizontal Divider

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 along with three velcro® straps that self lock underneath reinforcing the divider, that allows the top compartment to be weight bearing. Each drive side compartment has a zipper entry. This upgrade is best suited to full frame bags.

      FABRIC RECOMMENDATIONS

      • Side Panels - This is one area you can get creative so, go wild. We like X-Pac™ fabric options as they are waterproof and are cleaned easily.

      • Edge (contact points with frame) - Cordura® 1000d is a great choice with the abrasion from dirt and grim your bag is subjected to here. This is standard option available on our custom frame bags.

      • Liner - Both the standard and ultimate style of liner are available with X-Pac™ VX21 or RVX25 fabrics. We like the X-Pac™ VX21 in federal yellow to keep everything bright and easy to find items inside.
