Specialized Road Bandit Saddle Mount - black/universal

Specialized Road Bandit Saddle Mount

Item number: 78529

The Road Bandit saddle mount by Specialized - only compatible with SWAT

The Specialized Road Bandit is a special saddle mount into which the Specialized Road Tube Spool inner tube rewinder is integrated. This mean that you can safely carry a spare inner tube, a 16 g CO2 cartridge, a tyre lever and a valve head. However, the mount must be attached to the SWAT™ threads in Specialized saddles and is therefore not compatible with other saddles. A Velcro fastener fixates the whole thing, but can also be opened quickly if necessary. Using the Road Bandit, you can give your road bike a minimalist look without having to sacrifice the most important helpers in case of a puncture on the road.

SWAT is the acronym for " Storage, Water, Air, Tools" and describes a whole range of solutions that Specialized offers for space-saving accessories. There are SWAT elements that are built into Specialized frames from the get-go, such as the opening below the bottle cage on certain mountain and gravel bikes. And there are SWAT components which can be retrofitted to any wheel, e.g. the Conceal Carry Tool or the EMT Cage Mount Tools for SWAT bottle cages. The aim is to always use an existing, unused space to carry accessories such as drinking bottles, inner tubes, tools or CO2 cartridges, while being within easy reach, in a safe space and without impairing the aerodynamics. This often results in backpacks or bags being out of the question and emergency solutions such as spare tubes tied to the frame are something that everyone wants to avoid.
