This case provides maximum versatility, and is the case to choose if you are travelling to a destination where storage or transportation of a hard shell case is a problem. With the bike inside, it can be carried by the handle as normal luggage or as a backpack. When the bike is removed the case transforms into a regular size backpack that can be worn or easily carried on your rack. The case is made from 1000 denier black Cordura and has four plastic perimeter panels that snap together to protect the 10" edge of the case. It also features four storage pockets that are 13" x 26" each. Two of these pockets are located side by side on each face of the case. When filled with clothing they form cushions that offer added protection for your bicycle as well as valuable storage space. The backpack straps unhook at the bottom and tuck into the pockets when not in use. The case with a bicycle inside measures 26" x 26" x 10" which meets the typical airline standard maximum size limit of 62" combined (length + width + thickness). When the bicycle is removed the case can be made smaller, by any amount, by pulling the 6 side straps tighter until it gets as small as 26" tall x 10" wide x 3" thick.

Weight: 8 lb
Dimensions: 26 x 26 x 10 inches (66 x 66 x 25.4 cm)

ConsThe buckles
ProsThe best compromise for S&S frames
Have used this case for several years. Easy to use, easy to pack away when not in use and gives enough with protection. But put some padding around the frame tubes and other stuff you put inside the case.And dont forget to use the pockets on the outside for clothes, to get extra padding.

Its also quite light compared to the S&S hard case, which is good when you want to be able to fly without having to pay for overweight
The only complain I have is that the buckles are a bit fragile. The beating the case gets when flying destroys the buckles so you have to buy new buckles (of better quality) and then get some help to change
The Cordura material its made of is though, takes the beating without any problems.

Do You Stock A Similar Bag Suitable For Transporting My S&S Nomad
06 Oct 2014
Ideally foldable for A to B use so needs to be light so I can carry it on a bike rack.
SJS Customer Service:

Unfortunately we don't sell any bags specifically for fitting the S&S Nomad into. They won't fit into any of S&S' own bags and the only other bags we have are standard bike bags that don't require a bike to have S&S couplings to fit in them.

Does a 700cc wheel fit in the case? With tyre or without?

SJS Customer Service:

A 700c wheel should definitely be able to fit in without the tyre, whether or not it would fit with a tyre on is hard to say, a low profile small tyre then maybe but a larger tyre seems unlikely.

S & S Back Pack Case Black

Der Sirs,

Pse. advise if the S & S back pack case is suitable for my Nomad.


Tony Smith
SJS Customer Service:

No i'm afraid it won't fit a Nomad, its designed for s & S' own bikes that are much smaller than ours.
