ILE Race Day Bag review

Cycling Weekly Verdict

Unfortunately though, we found this kit bag hard to get on with in practice. Ultimately the bag is just too big, crazy as that sounds. Fill to capacity and we found it very uncomfortable on our back and, due to its length, it clipped the back of the helmet when turning our head. It’s a great idea in theory, but in reality needs work, meaning at £170 it’s very expensive choice.
