Aeroclam Saddle Fit List - 236 Different Brands/Models 14/Jan/22'

Aeroclam Saddle Fit List - 236 Different Brands/Models 14/Jan/22'

We have a comprehensive list of [so far] 236 different brands/models saddles the P1 and P2 Aeroclams fit that customers seem to miss and order wrongly for their saddles so we've taken the list down from the website. Another reason for removing the list is to prevent those inevitable copiers of Western innovators from taking the bread from our mouths. Without the list they can't accurately advise. We also have 185 images of Aeroclams fitted to different brand/model saddles, so there's a good chance we have an image of your saddle fitted with an Aeroclam we can also email you. So...

2/ Will the Contents rattle inside the Hardshell of the Aeroclam Bike Saddle Bag?

2/ Will the Contents rattle inside the Hardshell of the Aeroclam Bike Saddle Bag?

The key to keeping your content silent is slight compression packed as per instructions there is no rattling.  It’s recommended to use rolled Plastic Lunchwrap, Bubblewrap, Cloth or Latex Gloves to take up any unwanted space inside the Aeroclam. As seen here, the LunchWrap over the top of content prevents the content connecting and nullifies any rattling.  You can of course load whatever you require into the Aeroclams but make sure any unwanted space is taken up by the above. Should you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact Pat via email info@cyckit.co.nz. Thank you!

3/ Is the Aeroclam Bike Bag waterproof?

3/ Is the Aeroclam Bike Bag waterproof?

In normal and even extreme weather situations the Aeroclam saddle bag will keep your content dry. During testing, the latch area was blasted with a high pressure hose and did let a trickle of water run down the inside of the clam and straight out the drain holes. The Aeroclam was designed to be watertight, and it was designed with ample drainage as well as rail impressions for the multitool to sit on preventing the tool from getting wet should water ever enter the clam. Any reports where water has entered the Aeroclam has been via water being thrown up...

4/ Is the Rubber Latch up to the Job of the Zipper?

4/ Is the Rubber Latch up to the Job of the Zipper?

The latch on the Aeroclam bike saddle bag is more than up to the job of the zipper. It is made of very durable rubber that has excellent UV qualities. The latch eyelets also have to be stretched over the plastic buttons with some resistance, so will NEVER pop undone in motion as long as they are secured/seated properly in the first place. When testing the durability of the rubber latch eyelets, I personally slid the latch over the plastic buttons over 500 times on one Aeroclam. This equates to 250 punctures and the rubber compound held it’s composition perfectly. If...

5/ The Difference between the P1 and P2 Aeroclam

5/ The Difference between the P1 and P2 Aeroclam

The only difference between the P1 & P2 Aeroclam bike saddle bag is the contour on the top edge of the top section of the Aeroclam. The P1 is more concave whereas the P2 is flatter along the top edge. While the P1 fits more saddle brands and models, the P2 fits 95% of the Selle Italia range but also some Specialized and Fabric saddles etc. So there is a bit of crossover between the P1 and P2 with both models fitting some saddles as nice as each other. But, there are certain saddles that specifically fit only the P1 or P2...
