Dropper post compatible
Dropper posts are becoming more and more common, even gravel bikes have them now. So, Silca has designed the Seat Capsule Premio to be compatible with up/down posts.
A seat rail guard lets the Boa closure snug the Seat Capsule Premio tight to the saddle without needing a strap around the seatpost. Without a strap on the post, the seatpost can then be lowered to its full travel.
Different than a seat roll
According to Silca, opening and closing the bag while it's still attached to the saddle is the key difference between a seat bag and a seat roll, with the thermoformed shell offering more structure than a seat roll.
Silca Seat Capsule Premio pricing and availability
The Seat Capsule Premio is available now at Silca's site. Retail for the seat bag is $46, with international pricing still to be confirmed.
