Perfect fit for every back

One size fits all. With the completely revised 4-way adjustable carrying system, the back length of the pack can be easily adjusted to fit sizes S to XL.

Adaptive Carrier System

The „Adaptive Carrier System“ distributes the load compression ergonomically to the rider. This allows the pack to sit close to the rider’s body during every maneuver on the MTB. The self-adjusting, harness support pulls the lower part of the backpack over the shoulder straps to the body, making the fit ergonomically ideal for the anatomy of every rider. Additionally, the hip belt can be shortened to the desired length as required.

Self-adjusting shoulder straps

The free moving, adjustable Ergon shoulder straps optimally follows the body shape of each rider. A special load compression guarantees a stable connection of the pack, even at the lower back. With aluminium D-rings the construction is particularly robust.

Protector Pocket Safety first

The hydration bladder and back protector (BP 100) can be used simultaneously due to the separate compartment for the back protector. Knee and elbow protectors can be stowed under the bottom of the backpack.

Hip Belt Extremely close to the body

The wide hip belt fixes the backpack ergonomically and thus prevents the shoulder straps in the chest area from deviating outwards. The elastic strap has an additional compartment in which mobile phone, keys and other small items can be stowed within easy reach at all times. If necessary, the hip belt can be shortened to the desired length without any problem.
