Exped Fold Dry Bag - Individual




Olive, Black


Which colour options are there on the Fat Lion?

The standard in-stock colour is black. Colour options are available with a custom frame bag order, allowing you to have coordinated luggage across the whole bike.

Does the Fat Lion come with a dry bags?

The Fat Lion is priced excluding a dry bag. However, we now stock Exped dry bags in a range of sizes that can be purchased at the same time at additional cost.

What size dry bag would recommend?

The Fat Lion will take a dry bag between approx 13 – 35 litres in size.

I have dropped handlebars – will the Fat Lion fit?

No; while the padded panel of the Fat Lion measures approximately 35 cm wide, but is intended to take a 13 litre dry bag, minimum, which are usually too wide to fit between the controls on drop bars.

Will the Fat Lion fit around my brake and gear cables?

The Lion is designed to generally sit under your cables, leaving space between the padded panel and the head tube for cables to be routed without significant difficulty. Depending on your precise set-up and load size, it may be necessary to lengthen cable outers to maintain a smooth curve for cables and hoses.

Is the Fat Lion compatible with v-brakes/ calliper/ cantilever brakes?

The extra length of the padded panel may cause issues with rim mounted brakes. We recommend it is used with bikes fitted with disc brakes.

Is the Fat Lion compatible with a Jones Truss fork?

Yes, it is. Instead of attaching the lower strap to where a conventional fork crown would be, they can be strapped to the triangular braces just forward of the head tube.

Is the Fat Lion compatible with a Cannonade Lefty fork?

No, it isn’t.

Will it mark my forks and handlebars?

As with most accessories attached directly to the bike, we recommend using some protective tape to preserve you anodised/ painted/ carbon finish. We stock genuine transparent 3M Helicopter Tape, available separately.
