The ultimate waterproof handlebar roll bag for cycle touring adventures.
The Sweetroll from Revelate is a trusty waterproof seam sealed bag with roll closure, for travelling cyclists wanting to load the front of their touring bike. Coming in three sizes, the bag can be used for packing between 10 and 18 litres; allowing you to carry enough kit for a lightweight unsupported tour.
To maintain handling and for ease of access (especially if you have drop bars) the Sweetroll is best used for stowing bulkier, lightweight items that you don’t use regularly whilst on the bike: your sleeping bag, sleeping mat, bivvy bag or additional clothing.
The clip attachment system with velcro padding means the Sweetroll fixes to the handlebars easily, and quickly. Stackable spacing pads are included to offset the straps if preferred/needed. There are also straps and pads for fixing the rear of the Sweetroll back to the head tube, for extra stability.
The clip attachment system is also modular, meaning the ‘manta’ flap can be removed if you don’t need it, and the Pocket bag can be added for super accessible additional storage – ideal for maps, valuables and other regularly used items.
For more information and an idea of what touring kit fits in the bags, have a look at the piece over on our Journal: Revelate Designs.
- Waterproof seam sealed construction
- Adjustable handlebar offset using stackable spacers prevents cable and lever interference and bag abrasion.
- Manta Flap – pack touring kit between the flap and the main bag securely, and/or swap it out for the Pocket bag for added capacity.
- Fiberglass cross stiffener adds rigidity to the mount area and provides structure when packing and unpacking
- Foam spacer block at head tube prevent abrasion and bag wear against bike frame.

There are three sizes of the Sweetroll bag – measured by diameter (length is adaptable due to the roll closure). Be sure to measure the clearance available. For drop bars, it is best to choose a larger size for maximum capacity within a limited width…
The Sweetroll bag is best suited to bikes with Disc and V-Brakes (without vertical exposed cable). Again, be sure to measure the clearance available.
If you are stuck for sizing, go for ‘medium’ – it is the most popular.
