Doppelte Entlastung! Der leichte Bike-Rucksack mit 16 Litern Packvolumen schont Deinen Rücken und die Umwelt. Das umweltfreundlich hergestellte Material des minimalistischen Rucksacks besteht aus leichtem, silikonisiertem 40D Rip-Stop, die Netzaußentaschen sind aus dünnem Mesh-Material und auch bei Schulter-, Hüftgurt und den Verschluss-Schnallen wurde auf besonderen Leichtbau geachtet. Die außenliegende Multifunktions-Schnürung hat eine Dreifach-Funktion: Sie dient zur Komprimierung, als Helmhalterung und als zusätzliche Befestigungsmöglichkeit, z. B. einer Jacke. Das Körperkontakt-Rückensystem sorgt auf ausgedehnten Biketouren für fest anliegenden Tragekomfort. In der Tasche am Schulterträger können Energieriegel oder Gels für den schnellen Zugriff verstaut werden. Mit Trinksystem-Ausgang und Regenhülle im Packbeutel.

This protects you from the rain and keeps the planet clean. Regular reapplication is necessary for permanent waterproofing and stain resistance.

• optimal protection from rain and moisture
• no use of environmentally harmful fluorocarbons (PFC)
