Swift Zeitgeist Bag


Zeitgeist Bag is the bonafide bicycle saddle and handlebar bag.

Carry the Zeitgeist on your handlebars, or mount it to the loops on your saddle. An excellent choice for gravel adventures, touring, bike-packing, and commuting every day. 

**Please note, due to material shortages, Zeitgeists are shipping with a solid, black liner instead of the Dyneema grid liner (as pictured). For any questions/concerns, feel free to contact info@builtbyswift.com

*Comes with a spacer kit

The bicycle attachment feature on the Zeitgeist includes two sets of mounting points: one that matches the standard spacing of integrated saddle loops, and another that’s set further apart for use on the bars. All punches through the bag’s mounting points have been done away with, and the flap no longer has stitching through all layers of textile for enhanced weatherproofing. 


Improvements with handling in mind:

An HDPE liner adds structure to the bag, improving its stability on the bicycle. Compression straps pull the bag close to the bicycle, keeping cargo weight compact and tight.


Sizing and standard features:

The Zeitgeist Bag is available in one size, and comes standard with flap daisy chains and dee rings for versatile off-bike carry and extra dangle capacity.

The Zeitgeist plays nice with bikes that have at least 11.5″ from the center of the handlebars to the top of the tire/fender. This is to accommodate a loaded-down bag with spacers. As little as 7.5″ of clearance is required to run the bag with support/rack.
