Premium cycling accessories specialist, SILCA, in partnership with EcoLogic Designs of Colorado, has introduced the SILCA Brooklyn Backpack and Borsa Americano essentials bag as a special addition to the brand’s centennial anniversary collection.
‘Stylish, beautifully made, and constructed of recycled bicycle inner-tubes these everyday riding partners have quickly become staff favourites around the SILCA office.’
SILCA Brooklyn Backpack
A release from SILCA we noted that there were a number of backpacks, made from recycled bicycle inner-tubes, being used around the office… ‘So we put in a call to Colorado-based EcoLogic Design to talk about a special anniversary collaboration.’
The Brooklyn is positioned as a sleek yet spacious backpack featuring a padded laptop sleeve compartment, a number of internal organization dividers and a pair of easy-access outside pockets. Made in the USA, stylish, durable, recycled and water resistant – the bag is finished with SILCA’s signature red knurl stitching across the front and also features the SILCA Centennial logo in the top right.

SILCA partnered with Colorado-based EcoLogic Designs to create this ‘simple yet stylish limited-edition storage solution for your everyday riding’. Constructed of recycled bicycle inner-tubes and recycled wetsuit neoprene, the Borsa Americano is designed by SILCA and sewn by EcoLogic featuring four internal pockets of various sizes to give users plenty of storage options.
The main compartment is designed exactly to the dimensions of an iPhone 7+ with a case, resulting in minimal bulk or excess material. As SILCA adds, ‘for the rest of the bag, it’s really up to you what you want to carry’.
Also made in the USA, this bag is less structured than other SILCA bags, allowing the user to pack it however they like for minimal bulk and size. The large inner side pocket is on-hand for storing cash or credit cards, while other pockets can hold everything from a house key to patch kit. This bag is slightly longer than the SILCA phone or EOLO wallet, but thinner and narrower.
