Seat Roll Grande Americano

Powered by BOA®, Grande Americano is the seat roll for the rider who demands a solid, silent, secure under-saddle storage solution with larger carrying capacity than our award winning Seat Roll Premio. The security that the BOA Closure System provides on our Seat Roll Premio has been wildly popular among road cyclists all over the world so it only made sense to develop an option for gravel, touring and Mtn. cyclists to experience the benefits of this technology and design.

While the increase in the size of the seat roll might have been an obvious solution, we couldn't just stop at the obvious. We started this project with a test group of riders from various cycling disciplines and had them ride more than a dozen Grande Americano prototypes for more than 10 months. The primary focus of this group was to identify potential areas for improvement and opportunities to innovate. Our focus group consisted of gravel and mountain riders who require more space for larger tubes, and a few road riders who wanted the ability to carry multiple inner tubes.

The result of this test led to a few unique updates to the original design. For starters, we moved the BOA System down to the lower third of the roll which helps keep the roll secure over the roughest surfaces while also keeping the bag 'high and tight' under the saddle so it doesn't rub your shorts. Next our designer created a unique Lower Pleat in the bottom of the roll which gives it the unique ability to expand when loaded while laying flat when unloaded. Lastly, we increased the strength and tension of the vertical axis strap to better support the load and ensure total silence and solidity over even the roughest surfaces.  These refinements, along with the overall increase in size make Grande Americano an extremely capable seat roll; and one that you can use with virtually any bike.

  • Uni-body pattern constructed of 1000D Ballistic Nylon with water-repellent finish
  • Boa® Closure System with Guide
  • Rail guard protects and grips saddle rails
  • Three internal pockets-holds tubes up to 29x2.5" (700x62mm)
  • Heavy-duty elastic center compression strap for added security

 

Packing Seat Roll Grande Americano

We want you to experience the full potential of this seat roll and doing that requires that you're more purposeful with how you pack it, and to a certain extent, what you pack it with. This is especially true if you've traditionally used a seat bag and are new to using a seat roll all together. Either way, we believe you'll enjoy Grande Americano much more if you follow a few basic guidelines while packing it.
