Revelate Designs

After a decade of adventures with different superstructures for luggage transport for multi-day tours, it was soon clear that some unconventional lightweight systems could also be used in the world of bicycle tours, be it for MTB, racing bike or fat bike. With an industrial sewing machine in the basement, Eric began to sew his own frame bags for a fat bike race in the snow, following his invitation to the Iditarod Trail race. After a few months, however, the demand for these was so strong that Eric quit his job as an engineer to devote himself entirely to the development and production of bags for those who shared his passion for bicycle adventure and needed functional and lightweight equipment. Revelate Designs is still a small Alaskan company that manufactures high quality equipment for the niche of passionate hardcore cyclists. Production in Alaska and Oregon places particular emphasis on the "made in the USA" label and the use of local production materials.
