Revelate Designs Tangle



The Legendary Revelate Designs Tangle frame bag is the original Half Frame bag, it offers substantial cargo capacity in a sleek, rectangular shape that fills unused space on your bike.


Legend (wait for it) dary!

A rectangular frame bag for everyday riding and commuting, or for a bikepacking adventure. Put your cargo in an ideal location for weight distribution. This frame bag is designed to fit a variety of bike frames.

The main compartment features an exit port for a hydration tube or battery wire for some Bike Headlights. A flat left side pocket holds smaller stuff. Attaches along the top tube with reinforced Velcro™. The forward and rear mounts adjust with webbing and low profile camlock buckles. All attachment points bar tacked for strength.

The Velcro™ attachment strap wraps around top tubes up to 65 mm in diameter (2.56 inches).

On most bikes, the Tangle will leave room for your water bottle cages. Measure the vertical height from the top of the bottle to the top tube and compare with bag height. You may need to use side entering cages or smaller bottles.

Great Frame Bag

This works nicely for my longer rides. The quality of the bag from the material to the zipper is top notch. Also like how there is an opening for a water bladder hose. Definitely recommend!

Great bag!

So far the bag is great. It fits my Trek Checkpoint AL3 58cm perfectly!

No complaints

I've used this bag on 3 rides so far, and haven't found anything to complain about. Zippers pull easy and open wide enough to make loading and unloading easy. One ride was in heavy rain for about 90 minutes and the contents stayed completely dry.
