At only 35g, the dhb Micro Saddlebag gives you a compact and lightweight storage system which is the perfect size for storing a basic tyre repair kit or equivalent. The hook and loop fastening means it securely mounts to any railed saddle.

When you workout you sweat, that sweat contains water + electrolytes. With PowerBar 5 ELECTROLYTE Tablets you can mix yourself a zero calorie sports drink which provides the body with the 5 main electrolytes in the same ratio they are lost through sweat.

"Bought more for off the bike and really pleased. Fit is quite generous, nice quality and looks good. The black with a hint of blue is very reminiscent of a certain pro team (!) - hood is usable but subtle. Only negative is the elasticated sleeves, they ride up on occasion. Get one quick as at this price they should fly...."

With light shower and wind resistance and minimal construction, the dhb Active Waterproof Jacket can be stowed away easily into a jersey pocket or saddle bag.
 

Is it breathable?

Top 500 Contributor

No, not even close! Good for the money but likely to make you sweat if zipped up.

Would say medium. I have a 30" waist and went small - they are reasonably generous.

Yes all pedals come in pairs.
As they thread in opposite directions it would be very confusing to sell or buy singularly.
