Great Bag And Service But Design Flaws

Overall the bag is great, amazing quality, and excellent materials with obvious longevity built-in.

HOWEVER, there is one reasonably major design flaw, that has been mentioned by another reviewer. The lids/ flaps on the side pockets are useless unless the side pockets are stuffed full. If they are 1/4 or 1/2 full the lids/ flaps do not pull tight enough via the clasp to shut fully - they’ll remain loose/ slightly open. I found this out to my detriment this past weekend, I was keeping my Exposure Tracer light set in the side pockets, only to lose the front light out of the side pocket, due to it bouncing out! An expensive mistake to make unfortunately. Sort this and you’ll have a perfect bag. Thanks, Robin.

Excellent bag and company!!!!

The type of riding I do covers audax rides, training after dark, day rides for sightseeing, picnic rides, group rides, and long rides to visit friends and family.

I like to have tools to fix anything that has ever gone wrong on my ancient 1970's road bike. This fits everything you could want for winter/dark riding peace of mind and audax events if you are cautious/fully self-supported like me (lezyne micro floor drive, spare inner tubes, spare light, tools for chains and Allen keys etc, extra layers, waterproofs, hi-viz race vest, many snacks/a lunch box, lock (if needed), and a small flask (300ml). The feeling of space in my back pockets is delightful and beaten only by filling that spare space with snacks.

In warmer weather, you can even carry a change of light clothing for your destination when fewer/thinner layers are needed.

I was worried about it impacting the ride feel, particularly out of the saddle, but there was no noticeable impact for me. Furthermore, it carries very well and I personally haven't noticed sway - though I do keep a Lezyne micro floor drive at the bottom of it, which acts a bit like a structural support.

If you are considering this bag, I recommend it without reservations. It looks very smart, fits what you need (without being so big you overpack), and in my opinion, is far more enjoyable than a tiny saddle bag and overstuffed pockets, or worse not having something you need because you didn't have the space. Furthermore, having one bag to remove that is easy to carry around when I reach my destination for sightseeing rides is bliss.

Adding this bag to your bike is like getting trousers with functional pockets after never having them, the quality of life improvement this brings to many types of riding is hard to understate.

Carradice is a fantastic company. I spoke to Monika at Carradice customer care to get an animal friendly/vegan version of this bag, and I must say Carradice's customer service is beyond excellent. It is by far the best experience of customer service I have ever had.

I would give the Super C Audax Saddlebag more than 5 stars if I could, it is one of the best biking purchases I have made, excellent value for money, and I suspect I will be getting the larger version eventually for different riding purposes!

Review

Overall exceedingly good, very well made, and sized perfectly for day rides (lunch, jacket when the weather changes, map etc)

I deducted one star (would have only deducted half if I could) because the flaps on the side pockets are not great unless the pockets are stuffed full.

This is my go to bag for long day rides or summer overnight bunkhouse trips. I can just about get a change of clothes, riding kit and tools for the two day rides, but comes into its own for long audax rides or winter days where I carry a light down jacket, tools, light stove and Ti mug, plenty room to spare. Buckles easy to use and more practical than the new bikepacking 'sausage' bags that stick out more. The super C is a better design and much tougher. Mine still looks new after a year. The only small downside are angle of side pockets and the LED loop is a little low, I'd maybe have a low and high loop as depends on how full bag is. I use it with a Brooks but definitely recommended the Carradice Classic rack if you have metal bag loops on saddle, makes the bag better. I changed to another saddle so use the SQR rack... makes it easy to take bag on and off. Could not do without this bag for big rides, even a few minor design issues don't get in way of this being a useful bag.
