Turebag Product Story - Talk Track
Bike bag, shelter, ground-sheet and rollbag
Save Space, Save Weight, Stay Sheltered
Turebag is designed for the cyclist who wants the freedom of the plane, train or bus as well as the freedom that two wheels and an open road or track can offer.
It’s primarily a bicycle transport bag for when you need to take your trusted two-wheeler on a plane, train or bus but also; a quick and easy to erect sun or rain shelter for those times you’re taking a break but the elements aren’t; a simple and effective groundsheet for you or your tent and a hi-viz rollbag designed to sit high and dry and very much visible on your rear-panniers.

Made from top grade, tough but lightweight material, Turebag is built to the stringent specifications required by airlines. With easy instructions on how to dismantle and pack your bike safely, you could ride to the airport and have your bike ready for flight in about 15 mins. Strong and comfortable shoulder straps will help you lift on and off baggage trolleys and take it as far as you need before you’re ready to re-assemble and ride off on your next adventure.
Now, here’s the best bit, at this point rather than throwing away a cardboard bike box (and having to source another one for the way back) or paying for storage of a standard bike bag, Turebag comes into its own…

As soon as you’ve unpacked and re-assembled your bike, Turebag becomes an indispensable part of your touring gear. A waterproof rollbag designed to sit high and dry and visible on your rear panniers. It’s going to be the last thing you put on your bike before you head off and most likely the first thing you take off when you reach your destination. It’s more than likely though that Turebag will come out again before you arrive…

When you need a break and the elements are against you, within seconds Turebag deploys as a Rain/Wind/Sun shelter for your and your bike. Even if you’ve no handy trees nearby, as long as your bike can stand, Turebag can shelter you both. The shoulder straps double up as guy ropes and the extra strength grommets give extra fastening options when needed. After a well-deserved break, you’ll be rolled up again in seconds and onto your camp for the night…
[Tent and Ground sheet image]
At your stop for the night Turebag is back into action, this time as a groundsheet for your 2-man tent. I guess there’s not much we can say about a groundsheet. It’s a groundsheet. We’ll try though. We know it going to get wet and dusty and dirty so we used material and fasteners that won’t be adversely affected by the wet and dirt. It’s going to give that extra layer of protection and warmth when you need it. Hey, you’ve already got it so you might as well put it to even more work!
