Bring your Worldly Belongings and your Everyday Materials
It’s that most wonderful time of the year when the urge to load up and head out in to the big wide world has us packing our bikes to the gills to bring all of our essentials and creature comforts to keep us safe and sated along our way….
SimWorks is pleased to offer our refreshed color options in our 2 most popular RAL Loaders- the WB and EM bags, just in time for some sun-soaked summer adventures.
We may be biased but we think WB Loader hits a sweet spot for value, practicality and utility when looking for a capable tote style bag that can be used both on and off the bike. Constructed of durable, weather-resistant 1000 denier Cordura nylon and lined with a high-vis liner to make identifying your contents a little easier in low-light, the WB Loader tote can be secured to either a platform style front bicycle rack, or inside a small wire basket such as the venerable Wald 137. WB’s capabilities don’t extend to just on-bike use though. The utility of this bag is what we love most about it, as all of us here in the SimWorks family have found the WB a great general purpose large tote for auto, train, or even airline travel. Take it day-tripping to the coast or on a walk to the local grocery store. The webbing straps keep the tote close to your body if you wish to shoulder it, or you can attach the now available adjustable, padded shoulder strap for slinging the bag a little longer, and carrying more substantial loads. The entire main compartment is lightly padded between the outer Cordura material and inner lining. A slip pocket on the front of the bag is a great spot for a wallet, keys or your cell phone. The brass snap closure and roll-down style top that can be secured with a velcro strap all help to keep your contents secured and consolidated whether underway on a bike ride or carrying the bag with you on foot.
EM Loader has been a favorite of SimWorks customers for years and we hope we’ve delivered on some favorite new color options for those of you looking for a capable, attractive and affordable compact triangle-shaped frame bag to bring some essentials along with you on your rides. Constructed of the same durable 1000-denier Cordura nylon as our WB loaders, the EM provides just enough capacity to bring along a lightweight shell or knee warmers, some tools, some snacks, a compact inflator, your wallet, your phone…. you get the idea. Waterproof zippers are paired with soft pulls so you can access the bag while riding. Easily attached and switched between bikes, and cut to accommodate for the continued use of bottle cages, the EM is a great addition to almost any bike.
SimWorks now offers a good quality nylon webbing shoulder strap to use as an addition to any of the RAL Loaders that offer D-ring attachment points, including the WB, BG and EX Loader bags. Sewn with 1-1/2″ wide woven nylon webbing with nylon swivel-caster buckles on either end keep the strap from winding up. A padded shoulder strap helps to distribute some weight on your shoulder, prevent pressure points and keeps the strap from wanting to slide. The strap is easily removable and interchangeable between bag styles if you’re sporting multiple RAL loaders in your lineup- or wish to use it in another application.
