Lyne Components launches The Holy Rail on-bike storage system

Lyne Components recently launched a new on-bike storage system called The Holy Rail.

After around 8 months of development, we are finally ready to reveal a product which we feel offers a new angle at solving on-bike storage. We recently had a dealer & media launch showing off this new product at Stoke Suspension in Cape Town.

Introducing The Holy Rail

 

The Holy Rail- A Closer Look

 

 

The Concept


The main idea behind the Holy Rail is to reduce the number of spares carried on the rider’s body and rather mount them to your bike frame. This allows you to ride free of a backpack and saddle-bag.

The Holy Rail is a modular mounting system that enables flexibility of mounting accessories to your bicycle.

 

Simply attach the rail to your bottle cage mounts on either your down tube or seat tube and get creative with repositioning and mounting accessories and spares to your frame. The rail uses standard M5 x 0.8 bolts meaning existing bottle cage accessories are compatible with the system.

Dropper Post Friendly


We are big fan’s of running dropper posts on our mountain bikes, this led us to investigate alternative on-bike storage solutions. Saddlebags tend to damage dropper posts and backpacks ruin the feeling of freedom provided by having the saddle out of the way.

Dual Water Bottles


The ability to slide and change the bottle position allowed us to fully utilize the precious real estate inside the front triangle of the frame. We then discovered that with some careful positioning we are able to fit a second water bottle in some frames where you wouldn't usually be able to. The dual cage adapter was then born. Giant Anthem owners can thank us later! We will soon start a blog to record compatibility with various frames for reference purposes.

We have developed a range of accessories including an integrated multitool to be used with the Holy Rail. These are all available on our online store. We will be adding more to this range in the next coming months.

Very clear idea, shows what can be achieve by thinking outside the box.

Nice guys and good luck with the launch, I think it will do well !!

How is the triangle box mounted?  Does it have to go on the rail?  I have three bolt holes on the downtube of my bike - could I mount this onto the lower one of those?  Or is it straps only as per the last pic on the Anthem?

2 bottles in a scott frame... legendary!

Well done Lyne. Flipen awesome to see some clever thinking and innovation from a local conpany!

TheJ, Dec 20 2018 10:04

I like this...

 

But tell me if I'm wrong or not... You'll have the weight of two bottles and whatever else, secured by just the two waterbottle bosses in the frame. Isn't that too much stress on those two bosses?

Awesome product. Well done Lyne

I am wondering the same as I have been toying with the wolf tooth b-rad system and am almost at a similar solution BUT the amount of street on the aluminium rivnuts worries me. The B-rad also doesn't have side to side stabilisation.

Watching with keen interest

Flipping awesome

Do saddle bags really damage dropper posts?

 

 

Or is that just a thing to say so that you can solve an aesthetic problem that doesn't technically exist.

Yes it does. And who wants a bag rattling underneath your saddle if you can have this product. I mean even Specialized moved to the SWAT box for the same reason, but not all ride an Sworks. So well done to Lyne Components for creating a better product for all bikes...

I guess if you only ride on tar roads the saddle bag will not rattle enough to damage the precious stanchion.

 

But if you enjoy something a little wilder, strap on the saddle bag and feel the pain of your dropper post.

Well done Lyne! Great

Not really, but that's not the point. If you have a saddle bag you can't make use of the full length of drop. If you have a long travel dropper that puts the seat really low you will find your rear wheel hitting the saddle bag on full compression of the rear wheel.

Will the 2 bottle cages adapter be available without the water bottle cages?

RuanLeroy, Dec 21 2018 08:31

Oooh, excellent idea, so long camelback, it's been real, but I've met someone more versatile.

Ferro, Dec 21 2018 11:27

This looks the business and priced relatively well. Cant wait to try it out.

Check the picture with the cannondale the Holy Rail with no accessories, as well as in the video you'll see Holy Rail completely loose.

The triangle box has thread holes at the bottom of it, you then mount it to the Holy Rail.

It does not however need to go onto the Holy Rail, it will work on you lower hole but it would probably move around, as it would if were to only have 1 bolt in the bottle cage. So probably not ideal.

i don't know all the technical details behind them, but the Holy Rail sits quite snug onto the frame, there is a rubber strip on the rail which secures it down onto your frame, this in essence would probably take some strain off the 2 waterbottle bosses.

as stated in the above post, the is a piece of rubber situated under the Holy Rail which ensure its quite stable and secure when bolted correctly to the frame
