The iconic British cycling accessories brand doesn’t disappoint with its latest offering.
Brooks England, makers of the iconic leather cycling saddle, have just released a line of bike bags with the same commitment to quality and style. The Metropolitan line is a simple yet elegant line of cycling bags designed for high-fashion urban commuters.
Like all of Brooks’ products, we can only imagine this latest collection sacrifices nothing on quality or attention to detail. The six bags – a backpack, shoulder bag, briefcase, tote, and two sizes of weekender – are all constructed from strong, natural materials with an emphasis on functional design. Each has distinctive bright yellow internal lining to brighten the interior for better visibility, as well as organized internal space, padded inserts for laptops, and custom adjustable straps.
In a press release, Brooks noted that the Metropolitan line is inspired by urban commuters who seek adventure in every ride, even if it’s just a Monday morning ride to work. Rooted in the philosophy of the slow bike movement, the bags are meant to add to the beauty and enjoyment of the everyday ride. To celebrate the launch of the line, Brooks built the Metropolitan Detours campaign, an online collection of urban bicycle escapes in New York, London, and Berlin where users can view profiles of interesting urban commuters and their inspiring daily rides.
