Silca's award winning Seat Roll Premio has been exceedingly popular amoung road cyclists worldwide, so Silca released their larger Seat Roll Grande Americano. This is the seat pack for the rider willing to rip on any terrain; from rough mountain trails to rutted gravel roads. Anyone who wants a secure, silent, saddle bag that can face virtually any condition should consider purchasing the Seat Roll Grande Americano.
Silca started a study with a test group of riders from different cycling disciplines and gave dozens of Grande Americano prototypes for them to use for more than 10 months. The focus of this was to identify potential areas for improvement and opportunities to innovate the results led to a few unique updates to the original design. For starters, Silca moved the BOA System down to the lower third of the roll which helps keep the roll secure on the roughest surfaces while also keeping the bag 'high and tight' under the saddle so it doesn't rub your legs. Silca designers created a unique Lower Pleat in the bottom of the roll which gives it the unique ability to expand when loaded, while lying flat when unloaded. Lastly, Silca increased the strength and tension of the axis strap to better support the load and ensure total silence and solidity over even the roughest surfaces. These refinements, along with the overall increase in size make Grande Americano an extremely capable seat roll and one that you can use with almost any bike.

I thought this bag would be harder to fasten/take off, and it probably takes the same amount of time to take off this bag vs. a Velcro-style seat bag. Overall I'd recommend this bag to anybody who wants a sleek saddle bag that can hold a lot very securely. I use this on my road bike and cx bike- haven't had a problem :
