Oveja Negra is a Colorado-based company that manufactures top-of-the-line bike bags with fun colors and bomber USA sourced materials. They are a rider-owned and operated business with a total of 16 employees, 20 sewing machines, and all of the manufacturing happening right in Salida, Colorado.
The company started making bags in 2012 in a 300 square foot shop up in Leadville but has since moved its operations down to Salida. They are committed to supporting US manufacturing and reducing their environmental impact, sourcing over 90% of raw materials from domestic suppliers. If you have never seen one of their bags, they are fun, functional, and designed to last a long time. The quality and attention to detail in every bag are obvious!
Who is Oveja Negra for? While they are most certainly designed with the bikepacker in mind, these bags are useful for anyone who wants to carry stuff on their bike. Bike commuters, townie bikes, kids, mountain bikers, etc can all benefit from an Oveja Negra bag. Some of our favorite bags here at Peak Cycles are the Snack Pack and the Super Wedgie frame bag. Whether it’s a mission to ride the continental divide or a daily commute on the Cherry Creek bike path, Oveja Negra makes a bike bag for the job.
