I’m digging what Silca has done here. Race bags aren’t a new thing, but what I like about the Maratona Gear Bag ($180USD) is its ability to open up and hold its shape while you’re using it. No need to keep pushing back the sides to see everything in your bag, it’s all right there in the open. There’s a bunch of other useful features as well. Check out the full rundown below.
A Better Race Day Bag From Silca That Loves To Travel
The Maratona Gear Bag was designed as a cycling specific travel bag for those weekend riding trips and races, yet is versatile enough to be used as a general travel bag. The designers at Silca used feedback gathered from both professional and amateur riders to create a gear bag that addresses the common pain points of traveling with cycling essentials.
In addition to helping you stay organized, the features of the Maratona become even more useful after an event when you want to keep your ride-day kit separate from your other clothing and weekend essentials. Some key features include an internal vented shoe bag with both internal and external access, a vented damp garment bag, and internal water bottle holsters. Additionally, the bag is designed so that it unzips enough to lay flat on the ground to form a small work area.
Outside of the internal features of Maratona, the product development team placed a lot of emphasis on ergonomic design. The bag meets airline size regulations for carry-on luggage; and also has three external handles and stowable shoulder straps that allow you to use the bag as either a duffel bag or a backpack. The three external handles make the bag easy to grab and the convertible shoulder straps allow you adjust the bag for traveling through the airport, the city or your next event with ease and maximum comfort.Like many of our other bag offerings, Maratona is constructed of 600D Nylon and waxed canvas. This combination of materials has been used by SILCA for years now and has been proven to meet our standards for reliability, durability, and weather resistance. Reflective quilt stitching and SILCA branding throughout the outside complete the aesthetics of the bag while letting those around you know your passion for the sport of cycling.
