äventyr bicycle bags The Social


The Social is an urban musette bicycle pannier bag that clips to your bike rack.  [Musette = a small bag with a shoulder strap used to carry personal items].

Specifically designed to help you disconnect from technology and connect with humans (yourself included).  Grab The Social, hop on your bike, and meet up with friends at a local coffee shop, taproom, restaurant, museum, you get it...  We thought of the rest.

This is the bag that started it all ~ the bag DeAnn wanted, but could not find.  A combination of good aesthetics, and superb functionality.

  • Leather D-Ring loops, top lift-assistance handle, and zipper pulls.  We worked hard at sourcing a leather we felt good about using, and believe non-leather alternatives are not great alternatives as things stand today.  So we chose to use Wickett & Craig leather; a vegetable tannery in the USA.

äventyr bicycle bags The Social musette pannier bicycle bag review by Sarah

“It's been so so great! I had been wanting something to hold just my essentials that is actually cute and this is really perfect for it!... It's great because I have had back and neck issues, so using a pannier this year is helping a lot with that rather than a backpack... Plus I've gotten quite a lot of compliments.” ~Sarah.

äventyr bicycle bags The Social musette bicycle pannier review by Ingrid

“What drew me to äventyr and in particular, The Social, was the simplicity of the bag – a place for everything and everything in its place. I really think that bike bags here in the States are very clunky, utilitarian and they serve their purpose if you are tossing in groceries, work bag, lunch box, etc. But what about when you just want to hop on your bike to the movies or meet a friend for lunch or fika?... The Social looked a great combination of bike bag and purse that I could clip on my bike and go.” ~ Ingrid

**The Social must not be over-packed causing distortion of its appearance (bulging, misshaping, stressing seams due to oversized items, etc.), or packed with excessive weight (The heaviest item you put in The Social should be your lock.  Packed bag weight should not exceed 6.5lbs (unpacked weight is 2lbs).  Additionally, the fabrics are water resistant (not proof); this bag is not made to take in heavy downpours. Additionally, winter weather is damaging to all things; if winter messes (salt, slush, melt, etc.) concern you, choose another great bag on the market made precisely to withstand winter conditions.  We made this product to last, but not for extreme conditions.  If use in any of these conditions occur, the äventyr manufacturing warranty will be deemed void.
