XMR is an Indian Bicycle Accessory and Apparel brand with a wide range, well designed and are value for money. From their Accessories range we got the opportunity to test out the XMR Frame Bag and here is what we thought.
The XMR Frame Bag goes under the top tube of a bicycle. There are 3 straps to this bag, 2 straps which go on the top tube and one strap which goes on the seat tube. The Velcro straps are of superior quality and are easy to fasten and also strong enough to not become loose during your ride. The reflective strips along the zip line makes them visible in the dark and thereby contributing to the safety of the rider. The EVA (Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate) composite material used for the body of this bag is a hard rubber like casing which helps absorb shock. It also helps in keeping the bag’s lightweight while not compensating on its strength.
Aesthetically the XMR frame bag looks great with a shiny black body and a perfect triangle design which sits perfectly under the top tube. The zip handles are long and easy to open and close even while riding. To make sure one does not fully open the bag when riding which might lead to the contents of the bag falling down, there is a Velcro flap connecting both sides of the bag which enables the bag to be open just enough to put your hand in and take what you need.
This frame bag has 2 sides of storage and while testing it we were able to place a 5 inch mobile phone, a multi tool kit, a puncture patch kit, a CO2 cartridge, a debit card and some cash. All these items fit perfectly into the bag equally on both sides and hence making it useful for longer rides as well. A minor downside could be that mobile phones with more than a 5.2” display will not fit into this bag.
This frame bag has a hard case material which is water resistant and also long and strong Velcro straps which keep the bag safe and fastened to the top tube. If you are looking for a bag to carry essentials which are accessible even when cycling, then the XMR Frame Bag is a very useful accessory to have.
