Advanced Aero Storage for Integrated Triathlon & TT Bikes

The Speedpack 483 is our newest aero top tube-mounted fuel and gear pack. With its versatile advanced mounting system, the 483 will fit nearly any bike on the road. But the biggest advantage of the Speedpack 483 is that it is 100% compatible with new generation tri superbikes with integrated stems and/or aerobars. The Speedpack 483's advanced strap system allows the pack to mount securely to your top tube without slipping and without attaching to a stem or steerer tube. The 483's full aero profile minimizes aero drag, even without hiding behind a conventional stem. And minimizing drag means more speed at a given power output.

The Speedpack 483 is also the perfect choice if your bike has top tube entry aero cabling (cables that enter the top tube vertically behind the stem). The Speedpack 483 can mount anywhere on your top tube and its advanced mounting system means that you won't need to run straps around either your cables or your steerer tube. And, since the Speedpack 483 doesn't attach to a stem, the 483 is also a great choice if you run a super low stem and just don't have the real estate to run straps around your steerer.

Like our other Speedpacks, the 483's advanced computer-designed shape, derived from a true NACA airfoil, maximizes the pack's aero advantage. And we integrated many of the same unique Speedpack features that reduce drag, improve on-bike stability, ease usability, and maintain high durability.

The Bottom Line:  The streamlined Speedpack 483 will securely and conveniently carry the race and training gear you need on your advanced triathlon bike, while minimizing drag and helping you ride faster.

Features:

Advanced CAD-designed shape, tapered and contoured in three dimensions.  Extended pack shape derived from a low-drag symmetrical airfoil.  Concave bottom keeps the pack tight and aero on your top tube.

Three special velcro straps combined with 3M adhesive hook allow the Speedpack to mount securely anywhere on your top tube.  Advanced strap system allows perfect fit on a wide range of top tube shapes without any rotation or slipping.

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.
