The Pika, like it's alpine rodent namesake, is a smaller but hardy bag. It's ideal for minimalist bikepackers, road bikers, women riding 29ers, and other bikes without much tyre clearance or exposed seat post.
The Pika™ is a smaller version of the Viscacha with side panels that are 1.5" shorter in height. The Pika's shorter height makes it ideal for minimalist bikepackers, big day rides, women riding smaller bikes, full suspension bikes and others without much tire clearance or exposed seat post.
Many winter bikers are also using this bag for day trips as a place to store a puff jacket or other warm layers.
Roll down closure allows bag to expand or compress in volume
EVA stiffened front and bottom plastic sheet provide rigidity and structure for load carrying

Internal compression strap for snug packing and internal separation
Overkill aluminum loop seatpost wrap strap
Loops on top for attaching a bungee or spocket

Requires a minimum of 3" of exposed seat post and 8" of clearance from saddle rails to tire. Check tire clearance with bag loaded and properly packed prior to use to prevent bag damage or worse. On full suspension bikes, fully compress rear suspension and check tire clearance prior to use. Using a Thudbuster post? Read this link!
