Saddleback delighted to offer its dealers the Scicon performance bag range
Saddleback to distribute Scicon cycling products to the cycle sports industry in the UK.
As anyone attending Core Bike (or reading the reports) will know Saddleback is to distribute Scicon in the UK, the range includes the famous AeroTech Evolution bike box that is used by many professional cycling teams.
Scicon is the official sponsor of Garmin-Barracuda, Team Saxo Bank, Radio Shack-Nissan-Trek, Liquigas-Cannondale and the Italian Cycling Federation.
Scicon has endeavoured to make the world's best bike boxes and saddle bags bar none since 1980. In that time Scicon has supplied over 200 professional cyclist teams with their products.
Scicon is an ideal fit for its performance product portfolio, and we will develop the dealer base whilst increasing consumer and media support for the Scicon product range. Saddleback work with retailers whose customers are serious cyclists looking for every advantage to give them that winning edge.
“We have always liked the Scicon brand and many of our staff has been using their products out of choice for a number of years It’s obvious that they have a passion to create products that not only look great but really work. Their credibility in the world of professional cycling and association with some of the best teams in the world make them a great fit for us and the rest of our product line. We are delighted that they see us as a good partner for their company and we are confident we can make the Scicon brand a very desirable part of our dealers business".
The Scicon product range is now available to order from the B2B for our dealers”

Scicon Aero Cycle Comfort Plus
Size 115cm x 87cm x 28cm Weight 6.9kg
Extras Frame bag, frame pads, handlebar and rear mech padding
This is certainly pricey for a soft bag though the Comfort Plus does go the extra mile in the protection stakes. The offset shape allows a road bike to be fitted inside with the bars in place. On our tri bike we only had to remove the extensions. The rigid base has a metal framework that secures the bike at both sets of dropouts. The wheels are taken care of with two integral padded bags. Inner pockets are there for your tools and pedals. It’s surprisingly lightweight at 6.9kg for a bike bag that features a metal frame mount. The four trolley wheels are a bit exposed and could be potentially damaged. The nylon outer is thickly padded and it’ll offer better protection than most. This is a brilliant bag, but like the Aerotech case it has a price premium over the competition.
Stunningly good soft bag that is easy to load and offers excellent protection but expensive.
