Gear built with the industry's best fabrics
All gear from Rockgeist is constructed with premium fabric from Cordura® or X-Pac™. These fabrics give unrivaled durability and performance for their weight. Combined with meticulous design and exceptional workmanship, these materials are an essential element in delivering best-in-class gear.
X-Pac™ VX21 is the workhorse fabric for bikepacking gear and is constructed of a 210 denier nylon face (hence the 21 in VX21), a black polyester X-Ply™ grid, PET film, and a 50 denier taffeta backing. The outer 210 denier face is then treated with a durable water repellant finish. Collectively these layers create a very technical fabric with exceptional abrasion resistance, low stretch, and durable waterproofness. VX07, X33, VX42 and X50 are similarly constructed with their respective denier face (70, 330, 420, 500 denier) with the exception that X33 and X50 have a 0.5 mm shiny polyester film backing rather then the taffeta backing.
Cordura® fabric is constructed of a specialty nylon weave with a waterproof coating that has exceptional resistance to abrasion and punctures. 500 denier Cordura® is typically used for the face of gear, while 1000 denier and ballistic 1050 denier is used for abrasion prone areas (e.g., the spine of framebags/top tube bags). Ballistic 1050d is standard on the spine of all Rockgeist framebags, however, 1000d Cordura® is more then sufficient to take the abuse and is available in a variety of colors. Please don’t hesitate to request your framebag to be built with a colored 1000d fabric for the spine (see available 1000d colors below).
