Most riders in the US think of gloves when they hear the Held brand name, but in addition to their gloves, they also produce a very high quality line of accessories. Riders Discount is now proud to offer these Held accessories to you – starting with the Turano and Scotty tank bags. Both are very versatile bags that hold up to the excellent build quality you would expect from the brand.
The Turano and Scotty both have essentially the same design, only in two different sizes. Starting at the top, you will find a clear compartment with a full zip that is perfect for your map/GPS and cellphone. Below this is the main compartment which, on the smaller Scotty, has plenty of room for your commuting or day trip essentials. The main compartment on the Turano is much larger, and has more than enough room to hold rain gear and clothes for a weekend tour. Both models also allow you to expand this main storage capacity by nearly twice the original size when you unzip one of the robust zippers encircling the compartment. Additional small pockets are found on the front and back of the bag for sunglasses and smaller items.
Turano – 12 liters – 22 liters expanded
Scotty – 6 liters – 9 liters expanded
Held is well known for their build quality and the robust, 100% nylon construction found on the Turano and Scotty does not disappoint. The sturdy nylon is held together with heavy duty stitching and zippers that will stand up to the abuses of everyday, real world use. The nylon construction is weather resistant, but Held includes waterproof rain cover for when the weather really gets rough.
These bags are very versatile and will work on nearly all bikes. Both use Held’s Velcro/strap system that allows them to fit a variety of tank shapes and sizes. This system, combined with the non-slip bottom, mean that whatever you stow away in the bag will stay securely in place.
Both expand to nearly twice their original size when you unzip one simple spiral zipper that encircles the main compartment.
