Description

The Vole is designed for modern full-suspension bikepacking trips when using a dropper seat post (if you still have enough tyre clearance). It features several innovations to stabilise and compact the load without adding any external hardware. The Vole carries just enough to accommodate a minimalist kit for trips focused on the ride.

A key feature is our Indie-Rail attachment system. This a progression from conventional bikepacking bag mounts where the rail straps are fixed to the top-center of the bag. With Indie-rail, each rail is cinched down to the sides of the bag greatly reducing bag sway without any additional hardware. We combine this with a rigid internal structure and active camming buckles to prevent straps from loosening and slipping on rough terrain or wet conditions. 

The bag is stiffened on all sides including an external plastic bottom sheet which protects the bottom of the bag and a composite internal top sheet which provides a solid and stable platform for the strap points. For full and heavy loads, an included strap is hitched around the saddle rails to use with the rear compression metal hook. This adds significant vertical stability due to the higher attachment point than the one on the bag itself.

For use with a dropper post - you must use the included Wolf Tooth Valais clamp.

Due to space constraints where the bag mounts, we only advise using the Vole without the Valais clamp (normal non-dropper seat posts) on mellow terrain such as gravel and road cycling.

Compatible with Cirrus Cycles Body Float suspension seatposts (without using clamp).

 

Features:

  • Indie-Rail attachment system and active camming hardware.
  • External plastic bottom frame sheet.
  • Aluminium hardware at high stress points.
  • Composite internal frame sheet.
  • Foam stiffened side panels

 

Important Notes: 

A minimum of 15cm (6") of clearance is required from the tyre to bottom of saddle rails. This varies slightly due to bike geometry and how good of a packing job you do. Checking tyre clearance with dropper post and full suspension travel is mandatory prior to use. Bag contact with a tyre can cause a bad wreck and generally ruin your day (and gear!). Tyre damage to the bag is not covered by warranty.

Although designed for use with dropper posts, we make no claim or assume any liability for your post's performance, increased maintenance needs or warranty coverage when using this bag. Please evaluate how your system works well before a planned trip.
