Description

Fuel Pod Rear is a weatherproof 1L bag, sitting at the rear of the top tube for easy mid-ride access. Ideal to keep weight central on the bike or as an add-on for bikepacking systems when all other frame locations are full. Soft-touch velcro straps and foam padded sides keep the bag stable and prevent rattling and the taller profile keeps it out of your way when pedalling. Hardwearing waterproof fabrics and a water-resistant YKK AquaGuard® zip protect your kit from all but the heaviest rain. The Fuel Pod Rear is built to last by hand in our UK Factory with a 25-year Alpine Bond.

Reducing our carbon footprint

We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.

We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
