Revelate Designs Bikepacking Gear
Revelate Designs was founded in Anchorage Alaska in 2007. They build the finest bikepacking and lightweight bike travel gear on the planet.
Eric Parsons founded Revelate Designs (originally Epic Designs) out of a passion for adventuring on two wheels. After a decade of adventuring with different setups for hauling multi-day loads, it was clear that some out of the box thinking using lightweight systems could be applied to the world of bike touring whether it be mountain, road, or on fat tires.
Using an industrial sewing machine in a basement apartment, Eric began sewing frame bags for fat-tire snow bike races, chiefly the Iditarod Trail Invitational. Demand grew quickly and after a few months the engineering job was left behind and he devoted himself to designing and sewing bags for others who shared his adventure biking drive and needed functional, lightweight gear.
Today Revelate remains a small Alaska-based business making high quality gear for the passionate, hard core niche of avid cyclists. They manufacture in Alaska and Oregon, everything is made in the USA, with as many domestically sourced materials as possible.
