The last time we released the sneak previews of Shimano bags, and the response was tremendous! Y’all made a point: Who can resist Shimano bags?

Yes, you’ve heard right. Shimano has just released a new product range for 2013 for dedicated cyclists. Packed with innovation and cycling specific features, the range emphasizes on its lightweight, ergonomic, form-fitting cycling bags. So whether you’re hitting a mountain trail or cruising through urban jungle, Shimano has the right bag for you.

The flagship ACCU3D Series (Accurate 3D Technology) is precision-engineered to fit the natural riding position. Each part is shaped to create a body-hugging fit that stays molded to the rider’s back. With a focus on innovative lightweight materials and no loose straps anywhere, the aerodynamic and form-fitting design puts less strain on the body, so there is more energy left for the ride.

The ACCU3D UNZEN hydration pack collection is specifically designed to power an aggressive off-road riding style. The innovative Rider Fit Cross Harness system provides free airflow and unlimited movement. There are three sizes available (6l 10l 15l in three color ways) all equipped with a fully customizable harness to provide the perfect fit Every Unzen pack is fueled with a premium hydration system and is packed with numerous features specifically designed with the cyclist in mind: easy side access, armor storage, loop zipper pulls, tool organizer pockets, light holder etc.

Proudly presenting to you the cycling bags from Shimano:

ROKKO Collection

The ROKKO daypack is the ultimate all-rounder. Able to handle weekend rides in the hills as well as weekday jaunts in the city. This lightweight 12l daypack is hydration system ready and Shimano branded reservoirs will be separately available.

With the mountain trails’ ‘dangers’ in mind, the Rokko collection is surfaced by a stretchable material which prevents branches from hooking onto the bag.

“One bag for every height” was the aim of the Rokko Collection. With the buckle strategically placed on the center of your chest, the length of straps are adjustable via a velcro holding the straps from inside. Brilliant product design, we say. So no matter how tall or how short you are, you can wear the Rokko correctly. Comes in Size S, M & L.

OSAKA Collection

The OSAKA messenger bag is the perfect partner for any urban ride. Named after the metropolis that SHIMANO calls home, OSAKA messenger bags embody the lively, modern vibe of the city. The 25l and 35l messenger bags provide a streamlined and stable fit and feature a unique quick adjust system, where you can pull to both let go or release.

Reflectors on the bag for safety, a dedicated laptop area; breathable back panel for ventilation and better airflow. Comes in both green and black.

TSUKINIST Collection

The TSUKINIST collection – a blend of tsukin (Japanese for commuting) and cyclist- is designed to meet the bicycle commuter’s specific needs. These spacious bags (20l and 30l) with a breathable back panel are packed with smart features such as a separate padded laptop section, dedicated key area, a Smartphone pocket on the shoulder strap and a bright colored rain cover.
