Dakine Hot Laps Gripper Bike Bag
The Dakine Hot Laps Gripper Bike Bag is a minimalist designed storage solution. It can be mounted almost anywhere on your bike frame and has just enough room for all the essentials. Perfect for those short rides where you don't want to wear a bag and also those big day epics where you want to move a little weight off your back and onto your bike frame.
Who's this item for: Enduro, Trail, XC, Overlanders, Cyclocross riders and Gravel Grinders. Really, anyone that rides a bike for more than 4ish minutes per lap.
Things you can carry: The Hot Laps Gripper was designed to carry a spare tube, tyre levers and CO2 canisters. We've seen all kinds of things carried in them though- snacks, folding tools, small first-aid kits, snake bite kits, tyre plug kits and even cell phones.
Mounting locations: You can mount this under your saddle or to almost any part of your bike frame. If you are installing it on a dual suspension bike make sure you test your mounting location before heading off on your ride to make sure nothing is going to foul when the suspension compresses.
Mount Type: The Gripper mounts with one durable hook and loop strap. The contents are contained in a either smaller elastic slip pouches or the main compartment.
Pros: The ability to grab your bike and have your spares already mounted to it is rad.
Cons: When riding in muddy or wet weather the items stored in the Hot Laps Gripper are going to cop it. Placing weather sensitive things in zip lock bags first isn't a bad idea.
(Note: 2x25g C02 cartridges will fit, but will make the bag seem like it's about to burst at the seams. 2x16g cartridges fit perfectly.)

Was disappointed when i received the bag. How can people fit the things they say this bag can fit?. After stuffing a tube, multi-tool, tyre levers, 2 c02 cylinders and head, zip ties, chain link, it all fits perfectly. Plus it fits perfectly under the seat without interfering with the dropper post. Looks great too.
It holds it all in!!

Got 2 of these, they hold a multi tool, 29er tube, tyre levers and 2x co2 canisters and the inflator perfectly.

Solves the problem of where to carry spares in the age of dropper posts.
Great dealing with MBD as always
This "little" pack is a great way to ditch the bag on short rides but still have enough tools for running repairs, if you can fit it in your frame.
I've managed to fit a 2.4" tube, multi tool, 2 tyre levers, 2 CO2 bulbs and tubeless plugs, plus tool in this pack.
On my Merida One Sixty I'm unable to fit the pack inside my frame and run a water bottle when it's packed with the above items.
Perfect on bike storage solution

Very well made, is tough as nails. It is holding tube, 2 gas cartridges, chain link, gas inflator valve, tyre levers, multi tool, zip ties and patches easily. Is secure on the bike and stays where you want it. Perfect if you don't want to ride with a camelback.
Good bit of kit

Does exactly what it says. Holds everything nice and firm, hasn't slipped sideways and I don't have it mounted in an ideal spot but works really well regardless.
