Apidura bikepacking luggage

Apidura are driven by a passion to open a whole new world of riding possibilities and with their rack-less, ultra-lightweight luggage they’re managing to do just that. Ultralight, durable, and extremely functional, it’s all about unencumbered bicycle touring so that cyclists can spend more time enjoying the ride.

We’ve long been fans off strapping it all on the bike and riding/pushing/dragging/stumbling (delete as applicable) your bike to remote and sometimes not so remote places. The Sub 24 hour Overnight (S24O) is one of our favourite things, finish work Sat pm, head for the hills come home Sun pm. Simple.

All you need is a bike, a couple of bags and you’re off

Apidura Racing Series

Designed for ultra distance competition and audax, the Racing Series unites minimal weight and optimal performance in an uncompromising package that also excels in everyday rides.

Each Pack is constructed from a bespoke laminate developed specifically for Apidura, and finished with Woojin buckles.


Apidura Expedition Series

These Packs are designed for rides that don’t depend on the weather forecast. They’re constructed from a waterproof laminate that was developed specifically for Apidura, with welded seams to provide complete protection from the elements.

Constructed with Hypalon reinforcements, tough nylon straps and Woojin buckles, the Expedition Series is ready for long-distance riding in any weather, from the weekend ride to a global tour.


Apidura Backcountry Series

We’re never more than a couple of hours of pedalling away from the double track and dirt trails of the countryside. The Backcountry Series is made with this style of escape in mind; wherever you are, there’s an adventure to be had.

The Series is constructed from a hard-wearing and all-weather laminate, with long-lasting, anti-slip Hypalon rubberized nylon to reinforce contact points. Optimised for technical riding, singletrack and mountain trails, the Backcountry Series is designed to excel on tough terrain.


So, where to put all your stuff then?

Our Silk Road Mountain Race Set Ups
Our Silk Road Mountain Race set ups - note the Apidura Backcountry Series Saddlebag and Expedition Series Top Tube Pack.

Traditionally sleeping equipment can be stowed up front in the handlebar bag or harness – squishable stuff like sleeping bags, your bivvy bags and tarp. Attach an accessory pocket for even more room.

Any spare or additional clothing goes in the seat pack – as little or as much as you like to carry. Some riders get away with traveling incredibly light but that’s not for everyone, so we stock a full range of sizes and whichever you choose they are all easy to roll down if not full.

Pick a frame pack to fit your frame size and fill it with items you may need to access semi-regularly. Doubles as a daily riding or commuting bag too – probably the most versatile bag of all, you’ll end up using it a lot.

Top tube packs and food pouches are available in different sizes and fit those little things you’ll need to access frequently, such as camera, snacks and multitool. These also work great as a day ride or commute bag. (FYI: You can fit a bottle of champagne in a 1.2L Backcountry Food Pouch.)
