Description

Enjoy your freedom with the Topeak FrontLoader
Your bike gives you freedom, and if you want to enjoy this for several days you need to bring some gear. The Topeak FrontLoader is particularly useful for bikepackers going on an overnight trip. In it you can easily store a sleeping bag and mat or other things such as an extra set of clothes and camping gear.

Capacity
With a maximum capacity of 8 litres, your handlebar bag can hold a lot of luggage. But if you don't need to bring so much gear, you can remove the air from the bag using the built-in air release button. This way, you can keep your luggage compact, which is convenient when you have a long ride ahead of you.

Focus on user comfort
The Topeak FrontLoader is made of lightweight, highly water-repellent and durable materials. With the FrontLoader, you won't have to deal with wet gear after a rainshower, which you'll appreciate when having arrived at your destination. The FrontLoader is easy to mount and remove with the straps and quick-release buckles. The attachment system ensures an even distribution of pressure; this way, you have control over the handlebars at all times, even on rough descents.

Easy bag, with a design flaw

- Marianne 15 April 2024

Easy system for a front-loader bag. But I do fear a major design flaw. The inner bag bulges very quickly as you adjust it tightly on the side. As a result, the bag soon comes up against the front wheel. I fear it will wear out quickly.

Pros & Cons

Easy to take air out
Easy to take the bag off the bike
It bulges at the bottom, therefore touches the tyre
Will wear out quickly fear is

Bikepacking first purchase voucher

- Alexis 4 September 2023

Good product, the bag is very easy to detach and reattach. Be careful with the transmission cables, which may be held up by the volume of the bag.

Solid, waterproof, offers plenty of space

- Stefanie 21 August 2023

Previously, I had been using the Ortlieb handlebar bag (the variant with the openings along the side) which, however, often hung a bit too low and is a bit cumbersome to unfasten and fasten. This bag has the advantage that you can leave the shell hanging on your handlebars and only take out the light bag itself. This does save time and fiddling. The straps allow you to tighten them down well. I myself spent two weeks travelling around with it and although the material of the bag is quite light, I didn't have any problems with it. It also withstood hefty rain showers with flying colours. There are no elastic bands on the front, but you can fasten a light jacket between the straps.

Pros & Cons

Easy to detach
Sufficiently spacious
Vacuum valve
Manual is not super clear
Material of the bag is quite thin

3 / 5

It works but not optimally for road cycling

- Ricardo 7 August 2023

2 x made a small trip on the road bike and this contained some clothes and other small clutter. You need some space for your shifters so you're not going to be able to get it completely full. The inner pocket with valve does help to reduce the volume. My cables run through the handlebars so it took some effort to slide these aside without taking the tape off my handlebars

Pros & Cons

Carry extra clutter
Inner pocket with valve
Sturdy and waterproof
Awkward installation with cables near the handlebars
Limited volume on road bike

5 / 5

super product with good value for money

- Burkhard 29 May 2023

can also be used without the belt attachment at the steering head ( brake and derailleur cables get in the way on some bike models ) The bag sits securely

Pros & Cons

compression bag
ease of use after initial assembly
sits securely even in rough terrain
waterproof
