The Ripsey is the best thing that's happened to seat bags since bees got knees. 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.

 

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.

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.

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.
