The back protector Safety first

he Ergon back protector BP100 fits perfectly into the BP1 Protect.

Practical features Space for the essentials

Although the BP1 Protect was primarily designed as a back protector, it offers space for the essentials. The extra fold-out compartment allows space for both a 1.5 liter hydration bladder and the BH150 back protector. 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.

Although the Ergon BP1 Protect is small, it offers enough space on the bike for everything important.

Extra protection Uncompromising safety

The lower portion of the back protector is extended to further protect the coccyx. This feature allows protection of the full spine without compromising mobility.

Waist belt Secure to the body

Instead of the classic hip belt, the BP1 Protect has an individually shortenable waist belt. This allows the belt to be worn higher and provides a better fit for smaller riders. The wide waist belt ergonomically secures the backpack and prevents it from moving away from the body.

    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.
