Fizik 00 seatpack review
The '00' designation is reserved for Fizik's best products that are aimed at performance riders. Here is our review of the Fizik 00 seatpack
Overall this is a good quality, minimalist saddle bag that compromises space for a neat look. It is expensive though and works better if your saddle has more layback and is set further back on the rails.
Keeps contents protected
Minimalist design looks good
Works best with lots of saddle layback
The Fizik 00 seatpack is designed to match the Fizik 00 saddles, but can be used with any conventional bike saddle. It features one compartment with enough space for an inner tube, tyre levers, CO2 canister and inflator. However, try to fit a multitool in there too and you will struggle. What you have is a trade off – there is less space, but you have a sleek, minimalist storage solution that doesn’t ruin the aesthetic of your bike.

The Fizik 00 seatpak fits securely, but owing to its shape and how it straps to the saddle rails it doesn’t work so well if you have your saddle slammed forwards and fits much better if you have more layback. For reference, I tested the bag in conjunction with a Fizik Arione 00 saddle.
The Thermoformed Microtex Hardcase construction is good quality and the zip is very secure. The zip has a semi-auto lock meaning that it won’t work open during rides, but remains easy to operate with cold hands or gloves. The zip also has a cover and I was impressed to find that the contents remained dry after some particularly wet rides.
