Cockpit Bag DGS
This bag is a favourite as it is possibly the most accessible storage location while riding. Seam-sealed and weather-resistant, it is ideal for small items and attaches to the top tube just behind the stem. Double YKK #5 outer edge zippers allow for full access to the large front compartment. The tapered shape and Hypalon® contact patches ensure a secure fit to your frame, and a cable exit point is great for use with a dynamo hub and/or lights.
