Description

Your saddle was made for it — literally.

Your carbon beauty deserves nothing but the finest accessories. After all, streamlined aesthetics are nearly as important as functionality. Yet, every time that you head out for a ride, a frayed, tenuously anchored bag dangles from your pristine Fi'zi:k saddle. You don't want to leave without the bag, but you simply cannot head out with your pockets stuffed like a chipmunk's cheeks either. Fi'zi:k addresses this conundrum with its sleek, integrated ICS Saddle PA:K.

The engineers at Fi'zi:k give us a cure to this age-old problem with the often-forgotten-fact that its best-selling saddles are Integrated Clip System (ICS)-specific, which means that they have a tiny plastic receptacle under the saddle shell. The Fi'zi:k ICS Saddle PA:K has a male end that plugs right into this ICS opening. The Saddle PA:K recesses directly under the rear of your saddle, instead of lower on your seatpost. It has no Velcro straps to affix it to your bike, which eliminates the likelihood of shorts-to-bag abrasion.

The bag material is waterproof, and the zippered enclosure is reinforced in order to give it added resistance to water. The ICS clip on the bag has three positions to allow you to customize the angle of the bag beneath the seat.

The Fi'zi:k ICS Saddle PA:K is available in the sizes Small and Medium. The Small bag is ideal for the essentials: A tube, two CO2's, and a pair of tire levers. The Medium bag provides enough room to add a multi-tool and a second tube to your arsenal. The ICS PA:K is available in the color Black, and it includes two rear reflective patches and a loop to affix a rear tail light.

Just so you know, the following saddles are ICS-compatible, provided that they're 2007 models or later: Aliante Carbon, Arione Tri 2, Arione, Aliante Gamma, Pave HP, Vitesse Tri, Vitesse HP, Gobi, Nisene HP, Rondine, Nisene CP, Pave CP, Vitesse CP, and the Rondine CP. If you're unsure whether your saddle is ICS compatible, simply look for the ICS receptacle beneath the shell.

Broke

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Had 4 now, all of them broke. the plastic that attaches to the seat snaps. Great concept, terrible product.

Broke it

Wanted this bag to work. Great concept. Poor materials. Broke just like all the others shown in the reviews.

Works fine for me

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I just read some of the negative reviews on this site, and I read similar reviews before I bought this bag 2 years ago. After 2 years the bag is still holding tight on my road bike, and I've ridden over bumps and rough sections that made me check the bag, but it's still there.
Based on the number of complaints about the clip breaking, I would never consider using this bag on my mountain bike. But I put everything in my Camelbak anyhow on the mtb.
I like this product a lot.

Test run

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

Well. I bought this bag before reading all the reviews and am sad to hear that its common for the clip to break. My question is, does it mostly happen when its clipped into a mountain bike? I could see how all that jostling would break the clip. I do a lot of road riding and If mine breaks I'll update this review.

That being said, I love the design and chose the smaller bag of the two Fizik makes. I can fit a spare tube, multi-tool, tire levers, and a CO2 cartridge but its a tight fit. Previously I had a specialized velcro bag that always bounced around and was difficult to get into but this bag holds firm to the saddle and is easy to access.

Cheap Crap

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had two of these fizik saddle bags on my MTB and both have broken and I lost both bags along with everything in them. The plastic is junk and snapped. Make it will an alloy morons!! Yes, it's a few cents more we would pay you the difference.

Innovative Design, Need version 2.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used this small bag on my Arione Versus for well over a year now. I've rode with it in all types of weather and it holds up just fine. The material is a thick and fully waterproof (I've taken out the tube and put my phone in there on wet rides). The small size has just enough space for 1 tube, 1 CO2 cartridge/applicator, and levers. Maybe even a gel and some money or car key if you get daring. I like the clip and adjustable design of it. Aesthetically, this is the best looking bag out there.
My only issue with this bag is the plastic clip. After one year of being shoved around it's grown a little loose and I worry it is going to fall out of the seat on a bumpy rides. Also even when I tighten the screw it still flops around a little bit which is annoying when climbing or going slow pace. Mine is still holding strong to the bag itself though unlike the previous reviews. I think if they made a better clip in the next version this would be a 5/5 no questions.

Au Contraire, I Like this Product

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Lots of negative reviews of this product, but I have to say, it's worked well for me so far. I would agree that the plastic insert that attaches the bag to the saddle is designed in a way that could easily snap if pulled on in the wrong direction once inserted into the saddle. But so far so good. I do like how easily it attaches to the saddle - literally snap and click. I've bought the small bag and the next size up. Like all good products, maybe Version 2 of this will solve the problem for everyone.

Poor Durability

Nice design idea, but the mount broke where the bag is joined to the plastic bracket after 7 months. Back to Velcro packs for me...

Have you reached out to Fi'Zi:K? Their products have a 1 year warranty and I bet they will replace it for you.

Lost but not found

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This in theory is a great bag. Although very small my main problem is the attachment ingagement. Somewhere along a 3hr ride it flew off. Never to be seen again. I appreciate the design but it needs a few more revisions before I'd buy this again.

Good Concept Poor Durability

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I like to concept. The clip broke after several months on the bike.

Carter, AKA Dr ZipGrip is not going down easily. I also really like the concept of this bag. Too bad it is manufactured poorly.

Crap

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Broke at least three of these this summer, and now I have a graveyard of these puppies. The bracket can't handle a lot of weight (which adds up when you jam tools and CO2 cartridges in this sucker). And like the previous review said, the pack broke at the part where the bag is joined to the plastic bracket. Disappointing. Really wanted to fall in love with these.

Works for a while - poor durability

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've now had two of these break in use. The first one I put down to a one-off. The second broke during a 24 hour race... fortunately I heard it drop on the ground behind me, and I had to scramble in the dark to find it and jam in my pocket. In both cases the plastic joining the clip to the pack started to break and eventually failed completely. Also agree with the review below that the pack started to work loose in the place it clips to the saddle. I really wanted this product to work, as it's neat, but I'm going back to velcro based packs.

sleek

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I like this bag and have been using it with my fizik saddle for the last 6 months. The medium size bag can hold an inner tube,co2 inflator,2 co2 cartridges, a set of tire levers, small mini tool kit and $$. It slaps into place on the back of a Fizik saddle with ease and stays nice and sturdy.

Works - but

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Works well, but about a thousand miles of bumps/road crack - has gotten a 'looseness' . Where the clip from the bag fits into the seat, from miles of road riding and being bumped around - wears the insert portion of your seat so that it bangs around a bit. Only way to fix - would be a new seat. Bummer, but worth a try. Use this part of your seat - for the cool light thing that goes in it.

Agree about the looseness issue. Sucks because I really wanted this product to work.
