"Why does all of cycling think that Hi-Vis has to be neon yellow?
Have you ever ridden the same route over and over again? For me, things I see everyday sort of fade into background visual noise that I largely ignore. It can’t just be me! This gave me the idea to experiment with what “Hi-Vis” can be. What draws my attention on everyday rides is the unexpected and unique. The thousands of commuters in neon yellow are background noise. But that girl commuting on roller skates and playing the flute? THAT gets my attention.
Let’s get a little weird here, with this collection made by my cross town buds at North St. I had some simple goals, provide a visual treat, maybe some sparkles, hopefully a product that is a bit surprising or unexpected, and something that might get you noticed. Why be lost in the noise?"

The Pioneer 12 ups the ante from its smaller sibling - the Pioneer 9 - with extra capacity and a few key upgrades to keep your travel supplies right at your fingertips. Adaptable to the core, the 12 inch wide Pioneer converts from hip pouch to bicycle handlebar bag to shoulder pack with a quick and easy hardware switch.

Built-in separate pack cloth pockets provide structure and division to the roomy interior, and two strips of velcro opposite those standard pockets give you access to the Division system for additional storage options. keeping your spare gear organized and handy for whatever adventures await.
Featuring a ¾ perimeter zipper and detachable side carry loops, the Pioneer 12 opens fully, laying flat for packing and easy access out in the field. Two rows of 1.5” Velcro strips give you even more flexibility in your carry - check out our modular pocket options and customize your setup. Stow your iPhone in the quick access front zipper pocket, and hook on the optional shoulder strap to add stability as a hip pack, or use as a light duty shoulder bag.
Anyway you carry it - as a hip pouch, on your handlebars, or as a clutch in your hand, you’ll quickly get to know the Pioneer 12 as an indispensable friend for your adventures.
