Phantom 230 Roller 2.0 Saddlebag

SciCon is an Italian company; it's only fitting that they make the sleek, minimal Phantom 230 Roller 2.0 Saddlebag -- that you can still cram everything into. Part of their trick in making this possible is their new Roller 2 mounting system.

If you recall the original Roller System (now Roller 1), you start with a plastic cleat that secures to your seat rails with the twist of a knob. Then you install the bag by matching the cleat with the opening in the binding mount. And give it a 1/4 turn. The Roller 2 takes that same idea and adds two tire levers to the design.

There's one mount for a tire lever outside the bag, and a mount for a tire lever inside the bag. To make sure the lever slots work, SciCon includes the levers. Building the two levers into the design frees up space in the bag, so you can fit more stuff in it. The bag itself has a mix of materials. The side panels are carbon fiber weave and the main panel is Cordura.

A zipper runs three quarters of the way around the bag, giving you easy access to everything inside. The interior of the bag is open, a single cavity, with a hook-and-loop strap for compressing the bag. Reflective piping runs along the seam between the carbon fiber and Cordura panels. The SciCon Phantom 230 Roller 2.0 Saddlebag measures 7x5.5x12cm and has a volume of 230 cubic centimeters (14.354 cubic inches).

  • A light and compact saddle bag for bringing the essentials
  • Secures to saddle rails for out-of-the-way storage
  • Two external tire-lever slots boost internal space
  • Carbon fiber weave and Cordura are durable for rigorous use
  • Open center cavity has room for multi-tool and spare tube
  • Hook-and-loop strap compresses bag for secure fit

Piece of crap.

Runs small

I will be lucky if I can fit in one tube in this tiny bag. My fault for ordering such a tiny bag.

So far, so good

I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I was looking for a tiny bag and this one seemed to do the trick. Construction seems solid, but all the bad reviews have me worried about the durability, so only time will tell.

Bag will fall off your bike

I've used it several times

The actual bag itself is great, but the mechanism which attaches to the seat and the interface which is attached to these bags are faulty. The mech that attaches to the seat will slide on the seat rails, doesnt matter how hard you tighten it, it WILL come lose and when it does, you better hope that you hear when your bag hits the road... 2nd issue is that the apparatus that is part of the bag itself that interfaces with the locking mechanism on the seat breaks off from the bag, I have had this happened several times over speed bumps or rough road. I actually had to plastic weld it in place. This is a great idea for a product but right now it has some terrible flaws that I would stay away from, unless you like losing your bag and patch kit, etc.

Unfortunately this review is spot-on as the same happened to me with my Phantom 230 ...after only 4 months worth of use. The fault in my bag mirrored that of his. All of this is too bad b/c I want this bag to work. It is the perfect size for a spare inner tube, air cartridge/chuck and a mini-tool. The design is clever as it uses two tire levers to help adhere to saddle is just the cheap plastic that breaks under normal road use.. Luckily I heard it when it hit the pavement as I would then be out a saddle bag AND the contents (shhh: I also keep an emergency $20 in my bag as well).

Hi. I have used this saddlebag on a few bikes. I like it mechanism to take the bag on and off the bike but I too had issues with it staying secured to the rails. Thus, I took an old road bike tube and cut small strips the same size and shape where the mechanism attaches to the rails. Then I superglued the strips to the plastic mechanism. Let it dry and they attached to the saddle rails. It works like a charm. I even to a SciCon rep about doing this at Interbike a couple years ago. For me it is the best bag and worth the effort to get it right. Hope this helps. Jim

great mount, small pack

I've put it through the wringer

The pack itself is very small. Good for a tube, a co cartridge and valve and not much else. More stuff goes in my pockets. I ended up trading up for the larger size. I still use this for quick short rides. The mounting system is great and I do have the adapter on my other bikes so switching is easy but it is important you make sure you have a positive lock. If you are not careful you may not have it fully locked. I do remove the bag when transporting the bike. Why subject it to unnecessary vibrations. I also only use on my road bikes. I would not recommend for mountain biking.

Bought two, they both fell off!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought two of these. The first didn't fully lock in into the seat mechanism and fell off somewhere in the mountains with all my tools and a cartridge. I didn't learn and bought a second one which after a while started to rattle loudly. I attempted to glue it at the four mounting points and it held for a while, then completely detached at the four brackets. I have lost over $100 dollars on these poorly designed seat bags not to mention that they all rattle when you ride rough roads.

I've used it several times

I wanted to find a pouch that I could use with an aero carbon seat post (Ridely Noah RS). I've yet to find a velcro system that is long enough for bigger aero seat posts. Therefore, I have a lot of $200 bibs that have velcro friction spots from rubbing against my old pouch. This little gem solves my problem. I'm able to get two co2 cartridges, co2 nipple, 1 x 700 tube, couple dollars, and ID inside. I do worry that I'll lose the pouch on a far so good. Fairly aero for the racer.

Itty bitty

I've used it several times

The mounting system is killer and the built in tire levers are a nice touch. My multi-tool patch kit and a CO2 cartridge fit snugly, but I really don't need to pack anything else. The craftsmanship and finish are top notch. After a year, 5ish months of use the bag broke on me during a group ride, needless to say not fun. Bummed that it wasn't more durable I like the option of not having Velcro on my seat post.
