New bicycle bags from scrap tires

The material of the bag offered by Baesiq is a mass-balanced polyamide from BASF, which is obtained from the pyrolysis of used tires.


The two companies are cooperating to produce Baesiq's Pinqponq-branded "Pendik" bicycle bag made from recycled scrap tires. Baesiq GmbH is a Cologne-based company that develops sustainable backpacks and apparel. The new bike bag is reportedly produced from Ultramid Ccycled, a mass-balanced polyamide from BASF. As a result, it would have a significantly reduced carbon footprint, it says. The pyrolysis oil from used tires used to make the bags replaces 100 percent of the fossil resources otherwise needed for the product, according to BASF. The percentage of recycled raw material is allocated to Ultramid Ccycled products using a certified mass balance approach. The bag can be used as a shoulder bag as well as a bicycle bag, he said, and is expected to be available in summer 2023.
"We are very pleased to add this new highly functional product to our portfolio and, thanks to the cooperation with BASF, to be the first brand ever to produce functional bike bags from the sustainable polyamide," says Holger Fabianski, Product Manager at Baesiq. "With our partner pinqponq, we are actively advancing the topic of circular economy and are also excited about the other bag collections that will be launched in the fall," said Frank Reil, Head of Marketing and New Business Development & Sustainability Polyamides at BASF.
