BP1 Protect

Less Risk, More Fun! The BP1 Protect is not only perfect for gravity racing but also great for bikepark use. The heart and soul of the BP1 Protect is the BP100 pack protector, which is also produced by Ergon. The BP1 Protect combines effective protection with usefull storage space for items such as a mini-tool, spare tube, and the Ergon BH150 (1.5 Liter) bladder.

The BP1 Protect offers a revolutionary fit to the rider thanks to the self-adjusting shoulder straps. The 5-Position back length and elastic chest strap provide unlimited adjustment. Instead of a traditional waistbelt, the BP1 Protect has a short-cut waist belt so it can be worn higher, which also makes this a suitable pack for smaller riders. Depending on preference, it can also be under the jersey for a unnoticeable appearance.

Practical features

Space for the essentials

Additional storage is added with a small mesh pocket on the back as well as two elastic hip pockets. The waist belt features an easy access pocket perfect for keys or other small items.

Extra protection

Uncompromising safety

    “BP1 – less is more!! Exactly the right product for people who do not want to do without a back protector and minimal tool equipment, but who do not want to carry an unnecessarily large backpack. For us a worthwhile investment. The BP1 gives a good feeling. Nothing slips, nothing pinches.”
