I believe that is the Stormproof Seat Pack.

Sadly they stopped offering this in the US. I really liked it. Attached to the SWAT saddle threads, clean, and protected the tube from debris or drying out. Hopefully, they offer an alternate soon!

Right, it is this saddle bag. Really really good. Clean integration and perfect size for carrying CO2 and inner tube and not much too expensive here (30€). Must have for specialized saddle users !

Looks very nice. Unfortunately I couldn't find any shops with stock. Maybe they discontinued the bag?

Has anyone use the ENVE SES AR ROAD HANDLEBAR with their SL7? Was the brake line routing clean under the stem?

Also according to Giant in the CADEX testing the S5 and SL7 and nearly identical in aero with the same wheels.

Finally completed my build. Weight with garmin mount, pedals and cages was 7.48 kg. Running conti 5000 clinchers 25 in front and 28 in rear. I was running Vittoria TPUs but got a pinch flat up front on my first ride so going to give ridenow tubes a try.

[Edit] It is an ultegra build but I did source the 54-40 dura ace chainring for flat Florida riding.
