Female-Focused Brand to Debut Vegan Motorcycle Bag

The Lauren Sport Bag by MotoChic transforms from backpack to tote and is completely free of animal products.

This August, motorcycle gear company MotoChic will relaunch its Lauren Sport Bag with completely vegan materials. The bag—made from high-performing lightweight polyester—features a soft-lined pocket designed to fit a laptop, an LED light that illuminates the interior of the bag, reflective panels on the outside for on-road visibility, and the ability to convert to a tote for off-motorcycle use. This summer, the company hired five female motorcyclists to pass two bags to each other across the country, relay-style, to test the durability and functionality of the new vegan bag. Animal-free materials have proven to perform well across many applications, including car interiors, as seen in the introduction of vegan interior options by companies such as Tesla, Ferrari, and Bentley.
