Ultra Light Range
ROBO-KIWI Ultra Light is our bikepacking bag solution that goes all-out to create the lightest possible version of our products, while still maintaining functionality and durability. Excess weight is cut wherever possible. We use a hybrid Dyneema composite outer fabric, smaller buckles, narrower straps and velcro, lower density foam inserts, etc, etc.
The ultra light bikepacking setup isn’t right for everyone. If you want bike bags / packs so durable that you’ll be able to pass them down to your grandchildren, there are plenty of bag manufactures to choose from. If you want bags that have been shown to go the distance while saving significant weight over a standard bike packing setup, ROBO-KIWI Ultra Light is for you!
ROBO-KIWI's main external fabric of choice for the UL range is CTF3 (Cuben Fiber); a high-performance non-woven fabric which has been developed for applications such as yacht sails, airship hulls, kites and many designs that require extremely strong rip resistance and light weight. This ultra-modern fabric provides substantial weight savings over other options, while still being waterproof and highly abrasion resistant.
If you'd like to go even lighter than our Ultra Light bikepacking bags, please contact us to discuss your requirements. There are a few extra tricks we can employ on custom setups to save a few grams here and there and if you are willing to make a few key trade-offs we can make significant extra weight savings.
