Aerodynamic Storage for Standard Road and Triathlon Bikes

The Speedpack 480 is a top tube-mounted storage pack that is designed to actually improve the aerodynamics of your road, triathlon, or time trial bike. Wind tunnel testing has shown that, depending on the bike and stem design, an advanced shape top tube bento-type pack can actually reduce a bike's aero drag. And reducing drag means more speed at a given power output.

To maximize the aero advantages of the Speedpack 480, we gave it an advanced computer-designed aero shape that is unlike that of any other top tube storage pack. The 480 also has a wide range of unique features that reduce drag, improve on-bike stability, ease usability, and maintain high durability--please see our full feature list below. (Note: if your bike has top tube entry aero cabling where cables enter the top tube vertically just behind the stem, you may get a better fit with the Speedpack 483. But a single top tube brake cable that's oriented horizontally typically won't cause any issues for a Speedpack 480.)

The Bottom Line:  The streamlined Speedpack 480 will securely and conveniently carry the race and training gear you need, while reducing drag and helping you ride faster.

Features:

Aerodynamic CAD-designed shape, tapered and contoured in three dimensions.  Concave bottom and precisely angled front panel keep the Speedpack tight and aero on your bike.

Three bottom velcro straps hold Speedpack securely to top tube and provide mounting options even on unusually-shaped frames.  Two narrow front velcro straps allow for maximum flexibility for aero attachment to stem and steerer.  Front straps can also be attached to vertical top tube entry shift/brake cables.

Aerodynamic hidden YKK zipper with dual two-way sliders allow easy access to your gear.  Tough coated nylon sides resist water and abrasion.  Full-length rubberized bottom grips top tube to keep Speedpack in position.  Custom shaped HDPE plastic insert and high-density closed cell foam side panels keep aero shape, protect cargo and provide insulation.

Made in the USA from US and imported components.
