En­dura roller kit bag £179.99

Mountain Biking UK - - WRECKED & RATED -

If you like to keep your rid­ing kit well or­gan­ised when you travel, you’ll love this bag from En­dura. Open it up and you have four easy-ac­cess com­part­ments. The main one swal­lows enough cloth­ing for a big week away, and con­tains three smaller pock­ets for gloves, eye­wear and what­ever else you want to keep sep­a­rate and easy to find. On the other side, you’ll find three more zipped com­part­ments, which are ideal for your hel­met (al­though a full-face won’t fit – you’ll have to use the main com­part­ment for that), shoes and rid­ing kit. If you don’t want to com­part­men­talise your gear, the walls be­tween the sec­tions can be re­moved.

Ex­ter­nally, the con­struc­tion has been well thought out. The cor­ners are re­in­forced, the ma­te­rial is ro­bust and the buckle fas­ten­ers are neatly re­cessed, out of harm’s way. It’s a nice square shape too, which makes it eas­ier to pack into a car boot. There’s also a handy pull-out mat to keep your feet dry when chang­ing af­ter a ride. Large, ro­bust wheels and a long handle make for easy wheel­ing, whether you’re tow­ing it through heath­land or Heathrow. Be warned, though – at 5.34kg empty, it’ll eat into a fair chunk of your bag­gage al­lowance be­fore you even start pack­ing. There are big­ger bags, and cheaper ones too, but the qual­ity of con­struc­tion and lay­out make this well worth a look. Seb www.en­duras­port.com
