Silca Launches the Grinta Bags: Gear Up for Fast-Packing Adventure


INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana / AMSTERDAM (March 14, 2024) — Silca, the iconic cycling brand known for its innovative and high-quality products, is proud to announce the launch of its first collection of fastpacking adventure bags, The Grinta Bags.

Drawing inspiration from the success of the Mattone Seat Packs, The Grinta Bags incorporate the proven BOA closure system for a secure and adjustable fit. This attention to detail ensures the bags stay put, even on the most demanding rides.

Whether you are an ultra-endurance rider or simply seeking a versatile solution for extended days on the road, The Grinta Bags have you covered. The easily accessible handlebar bag keeps essentials readily available, while the roll-top expandable seat pack can handle fast day packing, up to overnight adventure rides, as well as ultra distance gravel events. The seat pack shields your gear from the elements and wind. The bags’ seam-welded weatherproof construction guarantees worry-free rides.

Beyond their technical prowess, The Grinta Bags feature a compact size that is ideal for carrying just what you need while not overpacking and weighing you down.

Richard Pool, Silca’s Marketing Director, shares the story behind the Grinta Bags and the company’s evolution:

Silca products grow out of how we ride, what we want to ride, and where we can make improvements or solve existing problems across the cycling landscape. Things as simple as curing saddle-bag-tail-wag, or strap systems that slip. Our mission is to improve the cycling experience, on and off the bike, with products that stand the test of time.

It has been a little over ten years since we moved the brand to Indianapolis, and a lot can change in ten years. The core of the crew is a bit older, wiser, and most now have kids, while the multi-day long tours and XL bike packing trips are behind us (just for now). We still need to get out, explore, and do the things that make us who we are as cyclists, and outdoors people. We have entered our S24O (sub twenty-four hour overnight) and ultra endurance fast-packing phase. Long weekend gravel events or quick burst into the woods, with a hammock, a beer (or maybe two), and a quilt. A night of solitude, recharging in nature, under the stars. When the sun rises it is a race home to arrive just in time to make breakfast for the family.
