Slow Ly Upcycled Bags from Ukraine $60

Slow Ly are small local Ukrainian upcycle brand that focuses on re-use and recycling. Its idea is to create bags and accessories from non-standard materials (leftovers from various technological productions – paragliders, small ships, parachutes, sails). Resulting in products that have an eco-initiative, aiming to show that each thing has a much longer life path than it seems at first glance and in turn, is developing the direction of sustainable fashion in Ukraine.

Slow Ly’s Zgar Bag is a small messenger style/hip bag that would make for a great gravel or mtb accessory bag to carry ride necessities.

  • Breathable design of the back panel from foam and mesh material provides convenient landing and a high level of comfort
  • Inner zippered pockets

Lauf Cycles Opens Assembly Plant in USA

Lauf Cycling’s suspension innovation needs no introduction. The brand has gone from a small, garage-based design and development company to an international name when it comes to their unique forks and frames. To further streamline its operations, Lauf has been busy setting up a USA base in Harrisonburg, VA. Why Harrisonburg, you might ask? Because it offers amazing riding (gravel, road and MTB), and because it’s a beautiful college town with excellent ground logistics for the US and flight connections to Iceland.

Earlier this year Lauf started shipping US-bound bikes from its Harrisonburg warehouse. This increased the brand’s efficiency and enabled a substantial price reduction on March 11th.
The new pricing break applies to both the Seigla rigid and the Seigla with suspension fork and all models of the Weekend Warriot with percentage drops ranging from 12% to 17.9%.

Sim Works Extra Rice & Beans Bag $120

Compatible with Sim Works’ new Burrito Rack, the Extra Rice & Beans Bag is a roll-top bag available in a range of colorways and material specs. The Extra Rice & Beans uses premium hardware by German outfit Fidlock for the magnetic closure at the roll-top and the cinch-lock for quick access. A reinforced padded base and lower ‘walls’ will protect your cargo during mixed-terrain rides on your local double-track. A purpose-built webbing attachment system with cord-lock toggles will secure the bag to Burrito rack’s corner anchor points. Dual daisy chains would allow this bag to be secured to another rack. A reflective chevron sewn to the back of the bag adds a subtle touch of safety.
