SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (July 14, 2015) – Timbuk2, the San Francisco originator of the iconic messenger bag, is proud to announce exciting new additions and advancements to the Bike Collection for Spring 2016 at OR Summer Market (Booth #34171). From small enhancements to an exciting new collection, these offerings are clever, stylish, functional and reliable.

This has always been core to our company DNA.”

Born and bred in San Francisco, Timbuk2 has been creating bags that meet the diverse demands of urban warriors for over 25 years. To see the full Spring 2016 line visit:

Timbuk2 Lux Collection

The Lux Collection enables women to feel safe, confident, and strong on a bike. Highlights for Spring 2016 include: 

Timbuk2 Lux Pack

  • The Lux Pack is the ultimate pack for the everyday female rider. It features subtle reflective print for high visibility in low light for safety, and a roll-top closure to keep weather out. A laptop sleeve that fits a 15” Macbook Pro and a built-in, pullout hood and seat protector have the rider covered no matter what surprise weather she encounters. These sneaky details, plus an ergonomic design built for comfort, make this the smartest pack in the bike lane.
  • Available in Black, Haze, and Silver
  • Retail Price: $199

Timbuk2 Lux Pannier

  • The Lux Pannier features all the functionality of the Lux Pack in a classic saddlebag style. Reflective print, roll-top closure, built in laptop sleeve, internal drop liner, and dual side stretch pockets make this the most versatile pannier yet. A removable cross body strap allows for flexible wearing, making it easy to stay stylish on and off the bike.
  • Available in Black, Haze, and Silver

Timbuk2 Especial Collection

The Especial Collection is built for serious riders who need to feel free and safe on a bike.

Especial inspires long rides to unknown locales and adventures. Highlights for Spring 2016 include:

Timbuk2 Especial Primo Messenger

  • The Especial Primo Messenger is a heavy-duty, super waterproof riff on a favorite that fans in serious weather asked for.

Waterproof zip pocketing keeps small gadgets safe, and a ventilated back panel keeps your back cool during a heavy ride. This is real protection for serious riders.

Timbuk2 Especial Spoke

Designed with the lightest weight CORDURA® nylon yet, and featuring a removable shirt panel to keep your button-down neat on the ride in, the Especial Spoke won’t hold you back.
