Compatibility

  • A minimum of 17.5 cm of seat post is required
  • At least 20.5 cm of clearance between saddle and tyre is recommended.
  • The shape of the harness is designed to accommodate different manufacturers’ dry bags in a range of sizes. To optimise the insertion of the dry bag, we recommending packing soft items to ensure the tapered shape of the harness is filled properly.
  • There is no limit on the weight that the Tiger can hold, but very heavy loads will have a greater impact on the handling of the bike due to the position relative to the centre of gravity.

Questions

Which colours is the Tiger available in?

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

Does the Tiger come with a dry bag?

The Tiger is priced excluding a dry bag. However, we now stock Exped dry bags in a range of sizes and colours that can be purchased at the same time at additional cost. We also have a dedicated tapered dry bag in development available soon.

What size dry bag would recommend?

The Tiger Drover will take a dry bag between approx 5 – 10 litres in size.

The Tiger Wayfarer will take a dry bag between 3 – 10 litres in size.

Is the Tiger available in a larger size than 10 litres?

With some dry bags, including one we have in development, will provide a capacity of 10 litres. We feel this is the maximum volume that can be sensibly carried in this area of the bike, to avoid adverse handling effects when riding.

What is the minimum length of seat post needed to mount a Tiger?

The Tiger Wayfarer (3-6L) size requires a minimum of 15 cm of seat post extending from the frame.

The Tiger Drover (5-10L) size requires a minimum of 17.5 cm of seat post extending from the frame

Note: see also new FAQ for limits for tyre clearance below

How much clearance do I need between the tyre and the saddle?

The Tiger Wayfarer (3-6L) is approximately 15 cm diameter when filled with a 5 litre dry bag. We recommend you have an additional 3 cm to clear the tyre.

The Tiger Drover (5-10L) is approximately 17.5 cm diameter when filled with an 8 litre dry bag. We recommend you have an additional 3 cm to clear the tyre.

What seat post diameter will the Tiger accommodate?

The Tiger seat post strap is designed to fit diameters between 27 mm and 32 mm. Larger sizes and aero-posts can be accommodated with a custom modification. Please contact us for more details.

Will the straps mark my seat post?

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.

Is the Tiger compatible with mono-rail or I-beam saddles?

Sadly, no. The Tiger requires two conventional rails to attach the main straps.

Is the Tiger compatible with a “dropper” seat post?

We don’t recommend fitting a Tiger to a dropper seat post.
