Calculating time remaining

The Ripsey is the best thing that's happened to seat bags since bees got knees. Pre-Order through December 15th to help us finance the project and get a great deal on your seat bag!

Update 11/28/22: We are committed to the project and we're making moves to start the injection molding process! We're still offering our discount through December 15th, to try to reduce our reliance on traditional financing. We'd rather give you a deal than pay the bank a bunch of interest.

 

Expected delivery is March 2023. Our injection-molding partner actually expects to deliver the harnesses earlier than that, but we've added a buffer for contingencies.

We've taken what we've learned from years of prototyping to make a harness-and-dry-bag system that has amazing tire clearance and a rock-solid design. It's perfect for those with short legs and tight tire clearance, those with dropper posts, or anyone who just wants a stable bag that's easy to use and won't sway back and forth.

All-new technology

We're moving beyond the era of sewn seat bags with plastic sheets stuffed in them - instead the Ripsey has an injection-molded harness and an aluminum saddle rail clamp, making it more stable than your grandma's fruitcake. We've rounded out the design with Austere Manufacturing CNC-machined buckles, and an included dry bag (made-to-order at Rogue Panda HQ).

Best-in-class tire clearance

Wanna run your full sus 29er bikepacking? Or do you just have short legs? Either way, we hear ya. The new Ripsey has a minimum tire clearance of just 3 inches, to fit on almost any bike, and the harness can withstand the occasional tire hit if you're running a full squish rig that doesn't have quite enough clearance. If you have extremely tight clearance (i.e. XS full-sus bikes), you can order the optional skid plate, which is replaceable if needed.

Help us Make it Happen

The only downside of all this new tech? The startup costs are really high for a small company like ours. We'd rather give you a deal than pay a bunch of interest to the bank, so we're launching the Ripsey with a crowdfunded model. Get a great deal on your bag and help us out by pre-ordering by December 15th!

Behind the Name

All of our bags are named after sections of the Arizona Trail, which runs within a mile of our workshop in Flagstaff.

The Ripsey is named after Ripsey Ridge, a section of singletrack on the AZT that's been called the best ridgeline ride in Arizona.
