Cycling Weekly Verdict

A useful ride companion for those outings where you want to keep heavier items out of your pockets, or simply need to carry more ride essentials. The fabric is robust and the zip is easy to operate on the move; the straps were a little long on our test bike and we learned the hard way not to experiment with mounting positions.

The Lezyne Energy Caddy XL is a robust creation designed to sit on the top tube and hold essential items - namely snacks. Its capacity is 0.8 litres, and I typically filled it with much more than gummy bears. On most rides my fully loaded Caddy contained a tube, mini pump, tyre levers, energy bar and my phone.
