Description

Since its inception, Silca has been elevating the humble floor pump to the realm of art. The Seat Roll Premio does the same for the saddle bag. Though the body is waxed, waterproof cotton shot through with reflective threading, the Roll Premio's key feature is actually the inclusion of a Boa dial instead of the usual hook-and-loop strap. The Boa wire buckle is a lower profile, more elegant solution for attaching the Roll Premio to saddle rails. It also matches your shoes.

When not secured to the saddle, the Roll Premio folds open, providing uninhibited access to each of its three internal pockets. This lets you max out its capacity without trying to overcome the restrictions of a too-small opening—all to common on saddle bags that unzip at one end.

  • A premium saddle bag for discerning cyclists
  • Wire buckle is lower profile than hook-and-loop straps
  • Body material is waterproof and features reflective details
  • Folding structure doesn't limit capacity like small openings
  • Holds tubes up to 700c x 45mm

Runs small

It worked well for 6 weeks. Then, slowly over time despite it not being touched, the Boa system would loosen during the ride and dangle from the saddle. Mind you, it was locked in place, but the wires loosened. Stop, refasten, 5 mins later same thing. Repeat 2 more times before I throw it in my back pocket. Tried again for 2 more 2-3 hour rides, same pattern. I'm done.

Used to stuff supplies in my jersey as I cannot stand the look of bulky saddle bags on fast road bikes. Tired of having one more thing to pack for every ride, a friend I race with recommended the Silca Premio. I pulled the trigger despite the average reviews on Backcountry. Absolutely LOVE this saddle bag. Easily fits co2, regulator, tube and tire levers when properly rolled. I'm confused by the poor reviews. The Boa dial works like a charm and keeps the bag secure. I ride on many city and country roads that are less than ideal, and I've never had an issue with the bag coming loose. I cannot, however, speak to use on gravel. You can't beat the Silca Premio if you are looking for a low-profile saddle bag for your road bike.

Class. Pure class.

I ride horrible roads. Probably the worst roads. Anyone who rides in NorCal knows how bad some of the roads are here and this hasn't fallen off or shown any sign of falling off. I ordered an extra one just in case something happens to my first one after reading these reviews but this thing is rock solid. the locking mechanism is genius. If you don't overtighten it or overpack it, you won't run into any problems at all with this bag. It rolls up tight against the saddle rails and looks cool while doing it. The white threads on the back are reflective so that is an added protection bonus. Silica doesn't technically recommend it but you could totally fit two tightly packaged tubes in this bag if they are latex or thinner butyl ones. The photo below shows everything that I carry. I doubt you could carry anything else. From left to right: Park Tool IB-1, Pedro's tire lever, 2x specialized turbo tubes, 2x specialized 16g cartridges, Specialized SWAT inflator. I generally carry some cash as well.

I honestly love all Silca products, however this bag is straining our relationship. First off, looks cool, more than large enough and it’s Silca! Problem is I run a somewhat forward, specialized power saddle. Without a lot of available rail space it tends to slide out of position. The Boa is great and really cranks down - I know because I have it super tight. But it has a tendency to slide out of place. All in all I CANNOT take it off my bike because it’s again Silca cool. So if you are an old school fan from when cycling was toe clips and Sean Kelly buy it. If you have no Idea what I’m talking about buy something else.

Cool design, but . . .

It doesn’t like bumpy roads. It is always coming loose, never falls off, but at least once on every ride I am having to tighten up. Going back to good old fashioned wedge bag.

Can't Recommend

Ditto to what many other reviewers have written - looks great until you use it. Any sort of bump and it opens up. It sits awkwardly under the seat. A huge disappointment - it will be replaced.

Awkward and not durable

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

This back is a Silca product, so it looks great on the shelves and it is very constructed. The issues with the back is that it does not hold as much as you think it which makes it incredible awkward to fold. Once folded it is like a badly wrapped burrito and it can very easily come appart. The BOA system works well for the road but it does not hold for gravel rides or bad pavement. I have had the bag for sometime now and I had to stuff it in my jersey pocket now several times. I only use this bag as my back up and last resort. I really gave it a try. I would recommend one of the Silca's other bags that do not roll and work very well.

Same experience here--I contacted Silca and they gave very specific rolling instructions and it worked, for a while. I still bailed on it though--sucks when it comes loose. Here are the instructions for reference: 1. Use the center pocket to fill with as much product as possible (I do 1 tube and 2 co2). 2. Use one side pocket for the other tube small items 3. Use the last pocket for flat items (SILCA Italian Army Knife has a very narrow profile) 4. With the seat roll open, roll the TOP Down first 5. Roll in the outside pocket containing the higher volume items 6. Roll in the flat pocket on top and pull over while wrapping the elastic band around to attach the velcro

Great Bag

Familiarity:

I really like this bag, the BOA concept is cool, In my bag, I can currently fit A full-size multi-tool with a chain breaker, tire levers, 2 cO2 Carts, an extra chain butter, master link, and some tire plugs. It seems to be watertight I haven't had to take it off when I'm cleaning my bike. I just keep my spare tube strapped to my frame.

One of the worst saddle bags

I really dislike this bag. It is hard to roll up, doesn't hold as much as comparable saddle bags, and hard to orient correctly. If I hit a large bump it will the bag's body will pop free of the retaining strap. Finally, it doesn't disappear beneath the saddle like a good back. It is probably waterproof, but that is not enough to compensate for other flaws. I found the Arundel single strap bag vastly superior and it was quite leaky in wet weather.

Fancy, but not all that good

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Had this for about 2 years so I'm pretty familiar with it. It's too small (2 levers, sm multitool, single co2 barely fits. When I put that stuff in, it doesn't roll up well at all. As another reviewer noted, it can get itself twisted around and open up. I'll be looking elsewhere for a new bag, which is unfortunate as Silca usually makes pretty good stuff

Way Too Small

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

I run small saddle bags and keep them really tight, but I pack a lot into them. This can not hold 1 road tube, 2 levers, 2 CO2 and an M17 multi tool in this bag. Returned and sticking with EVOC medium (which will hold all of that and more) at half the price.

Just do it

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

If you're going to be riding for any significant amount of time, it's probably well-advised to carry around your gear in a sleek saddlebag, lest bulging pockets render the aero-benefits of your expensive jersey null. May I suggest doing it right the first time around, and investing in Silca's Premio seat roll? It'll hold the extra tube, levers, Co2, etc. that don't fit comfortably into your jersey, and it's unique wrap design will prevent them from providing you with unwelcome percussion line to accompany your ride. Silca knows how to do it right! Be sure to reach out to me directly at jdraper@backcountry.com if you have any questions.

Thanks Joe, but it’s a conflict of interest to be posting reviews on your own website. Appreciate your full disclosure though.

Love this thing.

Familiarity:

Went to this last year from more-traditional saddle bags from Topeak and Ortlieb. The nylon feels bulletproof and I love how tightly the boa cable lets me cinch the roll against the saddle rails - no swinging around like you get with velcro straps. A few things to note. It's not fully-enclosed, so it will let water in during a serious downpour. If you don't seriously crank the boa down the pack and sort of flip itself over, coming loose and swinging around. It won't fall off the bike, but it will dump your supplies all over the road. Also, it's not for carrying the kitchen sink: mine is pretty stuffed with a spare tube, CO2 canister, adhesive patches, small multitool and pair of tire levers. If I wanted a second tube it'd be in my jersey pockets. All that said, it's still my favorite every-ride carry.
